    HiFi Technologies - Active Sky XP

    Introducing HiFi's first weather engine for the X-Plane platform: ASXP!

    Active Sky XP (ASXP) brings the popular award-winning Active Sky weather engine to the X-Plane platform for the first time. Using a hybrid weather depiction interface through X-Plane 11's weather API, a realistic, high-performance and high-fidelity weather experience is realized.

    Features Spotlight

    • Active Air Effects: Replaces internal X-Plane turbulence and air effects, providing enhanced turbulence, drafts, thermals, terrain-based wind effects, surface friction, gusts, variability, wake turbulence, microbursts and more
    • High-Performance Weather Depiction: Uses internal X-Plane 11.2x/11.3x cloud depiction for maximum performance and smoothness, with multiple weather depiction modes including theme cell "real weather" mode and global static mode - VR compatible and optimized!
    • Active Sky Weather Engine: An evolved version of the Active Sky platform brings the core features that made Active Sky the leading weather engine for other platforms: Advanced weather synthesis and interpolation, high-resolution global winds aloft, realistic air and atmosphere effects, a comprehensive weather data network, integrated visual mapping and planning, and much, much more
    • Voice Weather Delivery: Active Sky ATIS and Flightwatch are available at any time by listening on 122.00, 122.02 or 122.03 for closest station, actual/current interpolated conditions and destination weather reports, respectively
    • Surface Crosswind Attenuation: Optional, for better ground handling in crosswind conditions while preserving headwind/tailwind component for performance accuracy
    • Mobile Companion App: Use any device/browser to connect with Active Sky over your network and view and control the weather

    Release Status

    ASXP is currently in RELEASE CANDIDATE testing and is expected to release in December 2018. Please check back for further news, screen shots and more!
