HiFi’s first weather engine for the X-Plane platform has been launched!
December 11, 2018
Active Sky XP has been released and is now available at a special launch price of $39.99 USD from several popular resellers.
Active Sky XP (ASXP) brings the Active Sky weather engine to the X-Plane platform for the first time, including the core feature set that made it the leading weather engine on P3D and FSX platforms: High resolution data, a private server network, historical weather and playback, advanced air effects, hurricanes, microbursts, wake turbulence, advanced interpolation, global winds aloft, graphical mapping and planning, universal companion web app and much, much more.
ASXP utilizes a hybrid approach to weather depiction using the various API methods in X-Plane 11. 2 different depiction modes are available and provide a high-performance and accurate weather environment that is fully VR-compatible and optimized. An included (optional) photo-realistic cloud texture set is provided in both high-performance and high-resolution variants. ASXP also works with any other graphic enhancement add-on (i.e. cloud textures, sky textures/colors, shaders, art controls and more).
ASXP is currently available in a WINDOWS 64-bit version only, requiring Windows v7 64-bit or later with X-Plane 11.26 64-bit or later.
