    Hifi Releases Hotfix for Active Sky 2016
    Active Sky Cloud Art
    Active Sky 2016

    Hotfix 3 for both Active Sky 2016 and Active Sky Cloud Art is now available!

    This hotfix brings continued fixes, improvements and enhancements based on user feedback. For ASCA, among many changes in this update, significant Sky Color texture improvements have been made for darker nights and more natural colors by default. HF3 is a recommended update for all AS16 and/or ASCA users and is available for download now from http://www.hifisimtech.com/downloads.

    AS16 represents the culmination of 16 years of weather simulation engine development! New In-Cloud Motion Effects, Weather Scenarios System, Airborne Weather Radar, P3D v3 Visibility Smoothing and Volumetric Fog Integration, Navigraph Data Integration, Re-designed Map-based Custom Weather Editing System, Universal Web Companion App, an Improved Mapping System and a High-Latitude Cloud Squeeze Fix are just a few of the new features to debut in this brand new version of Active Sky. Beyond the many new features, AS16 also extends and improves all aspects of weather simulation and depiction, from data parsing, to synthesis, interpolation, depiction, performance, and everything in-between, your entire weather experience will be more realistic than ever before.

    A FREE fully-functional 7 day trial of AS16 is available to all users.

    ASCA is a new kind of graphics add-on for Flight Simulator X (Boxed or SE) and Prepar3D that incorporates brand new technologies and content types to transform your skies and significantly increase realism, variation and dynamics. The technology behind ASCA includes optional tight integration with Active Sky 2016 to enable features such as Real-Time Texture Dynamics, which allow you to manually change or have your textures automatically changed multiple times throughout a flight without needed to shut-down and restart your simulator! Also included with ASCA are brand new 3D cloud structures, a first for FSX/P3D!

    While ASCA and AS16 work great together, they are also fully compatible (either alone or together) with any other graphics add-on and weather add-on. You have full flexibility to mix and match any aspect and selectable feature set within these add-ons.

      I run ASNext every day. But your update 6066 says I do not have a valid installation. In my view this implies that I must be some sort of thief. You now will force me to re-download the full product, reinstall and reapply the patch. My time has value to me but I sense that, while implying that I am a crook, you also require me to take the time to fully reinstall your product which I paid for. This impolite message may be a result of updating to the Anniversary status of Windows10 which is the only thing of significance I have done. I really do not want to debate this. There are other products in the marketplace.

      Please note that this update is for Active Sky 2016. Your ASNext is a different product that is not related to this update.
