    Take a look at their homepage: http://hifisimtech.com/

    and maybe drop a question in their support forum.

    I have it (for the boxed FSX) and it works fine.

    I use AS16 + Clouds with FSX-SE quite happily. There is minimal hit on FPS.

    That depends heavily on the cloud graphics quality and the number of cloud layers you choose to use.
    OTOH that counts for every weather addon, not just AS16.

    I use FSX:SE and for that I use FSRealWX Lite. Works great. FSRealWX works even better. Both are great, and, more importantly to my mind, they're free. I'm a broke, cheap SOB.
    Frugal, that is. VERY frugal...

    Had a thought...then there was the smell of something burning, and sparks, and then a big fire, and then the lights went out! I guess I better not do that again!

    Wait!

    ASN = Active Sky Next - Can be used with FS2004 and FSX Boxed/Steam

    ASN next = No such thing.

    AS 2016 = Can be used with FSX Boxed/Steam/P3D if the proper license is purchased.
