Active Sky for Prepar3D v4 (ASP4) represents 17 years of weather simulation engine development!  Building on the Active Sky weather engine experience, ASP4 brings a new 64-bit ASConnect simulator interface, 64-bit XGauge, new Air Effect enhancements, new Visibility Depiction enhancements and more, all specifically designed for Prepar3D v4!

In-Cloud Motion Effects, Weather Scenarios SystemAirborne Weather RadarP3D Visibility Smoothing and Volumetric Fog IntegrationNavigraph Data Integration, Map-based Custom Weather Editing System, Universal Web Companion AppMapping System and a High-Latitude Cloud Squeeze Fix are just a few of the advanced features included in the core Active Sky platform.

ASP4 also incorporates full integration with Active Sky Cloud Art (ASCA), our graphics add-on for both FSX and P3D. ASCA includes cloud texturessky textures, and 3D cloud models to transform your skies, while also incorporated Real-Time Dynamic Cloud and Sky Textures!  This enables realistic weather-influenced texture variation that reloads throughout your flight without needing to shut down and restart your simulator.  You can use any graphics add-on(s) with ASP45, but dynamic texture reloads require the ASP4+ASCA combination.

The good thing that it is only one good weather engine for P3D.
The bad thing that sometimes the weather interpolation isn't really accurate.

Came from ASN with REX Soft clouds and was happy with it but wanted to improve the overall immersion when this became available. Now on ASN16 with ASCA.
Expensive yes, but all worth it for me.

Running it on the new P3DV4 with beautiful and smooth results.

Features are many and well implemented.
Happy customer all the way.

Been a HiFi user since Active Sky 2012. Following through the upgrade from AS2012 to ASN to AS16 has been an amazing experience to see how far the product has come since the earlier version. As for AS2016 this is as real as things would get in-terms of wx in my sim. The product is constantly updated with new features and enhancements which only increases the realism of our experience in the sim. I own AS16 for both FSX and P3D and can only say its been the best Wx engine out there

It is the best weather engine at the momment.
I recommend to buy with Asca if you can live with those awful clouds...
Nothing more to say.

I was using before ASN, and now switched to AS16, great product, the clouds looks so realistic and give a touch that was missing before, this product is unique!!!
I am using it with Rex direct + soft clouds, may be will try ASCA later, but for the moment rex looks more realistic. Anyway, buy AS16, you will never regret it!!!!

Definitely an improvement over ASN, which was already a great product. Performance in P3Dv3 and the visualisation of haze has been significantly improved as compared to the predecessor. It certainaly makes the simulator flight to a great experience.

I would rate it as the currently BEST weather engine for P3D available.

Honestly, i didn't expect that good weather addon. The best way is to buy it with ASCA.

I did previously use ASN with REX4 and now changed to AS16+ASCA.
On my first flight I was not so impressed compared with what I used earlier.
The difference between ASN and AS16 does, at least in the conditions we have here in Germany today, not that great.
Probably that will change with some really bad weather coming in, but well, we'll see.

4 starts because all in all Active Sky 16 is a great weather addon and one you surely want to try. There is a free 7 day trial, so you can't do anything wrong.
Not 5 stars though because the difference from ASN to AS16 does not feel worth 40€ upgrade price to me. 20 would be ok for sure, but 40 seems too much.

All I can say is WOW. on my first flight now using as16 and asca and the new cloud models are amazing. watching a thunderstorm squal line move past and seeing the towering CB's is something I thought was always lacking. im running the full dynamic mode and the weather change along the route is truly stunning, a must buy, this is from a long time ASN user, good flights!

BRSIMDESIGNS - DEBONAIR 35 - MSFS
James
The Debonair modeled is the 35-E33, which was actually a Bonanza as far as I understand (the A33-C33 were Debonairs, there was no D33 and the E33 switched to the Bonanza name.) The Debonair was essentially a Bonanza with a straight tail at a time when the V-tail 35 was popular. Regardless, for all intents and purposes this is a Bonanza. Kee-
nly, BRSim understood the Debonair's cargo potential. From the 35-33 supplement: "Careful workmanship and inspection employed in airframe construction assure that structural components will withstand flight loads in excess of FAA requirements for a Utility Category airplane at the certified maximum gross weight of 3050 pounds." Well represented by a dynamic cargo loading animation (move the payload slider to see boxes and suitcases come and go), this is nice choice for GA cargo operations in your preferred mission software. If I could give 1/2 star reviews I'd give this 2.5/5 until the glaring issues are resolved but because I do like the addon for the most part, I'm giving it 3. The developer has indicated they are taking feedback in this week and then will work on a fix, but I really think a lot of the issues with this aircraft, especially the size of the aircraft, should have been caught and dealt with before release. I noticed everything in my cons list in under 30 minutes of flying, most of it before taking off. While I'm still recommending this addon, it's unfortunate to not thoroughly beta test your release. Pro-
s: - It flies nicely, no issue with the aerodynamics though I wonder if any of them are lifted from the stock Bonanza as the sounds are. That said, it doesn't feel quite like the stock Bonanza, it has its own character. - Model and texture quality is very good overall. - Animations are mostly excellent. - Opening doors (2) and window (1). - The dynamic cargo loading is really cool. - Fuel transfer system works well. - Everything is truly clickable. - Working circuit breakers. - Nice selection of 8 liveries to start with, not sure if there's a paint kit though. - Swappable electronic attitude indicator. - Toggleable static elements are modeled. - No issues encountered with any navigation equipment. C-
ons: - It is oversized. The pilot looks tiny in it and it's way too big next to other aircraft. - The nose cone wobbles alarmingly. - The prop disc animation is awful to look at, it needs to be much more transparent. - The nose wheel (animation) doesn't turn as much as it should during taxi. - The parking break lever is reversed. - The sounds are not original from what I understand. - No sound attenuation for the engines when opening doors/windows. -
- Engine sounds are too quiet. - The carb heat seems to have no effect. - Winglets on tip tanks doesn't make sense. - No option to remove tip tanks. - Glass reflections (from external view) are pretty much nonexistent. - Brakes are very sketchy. I don't mind this if it's accurate as it adds some character. - I had to use 'b' to recalibrate the altimeter because when doing it using the mouse-wheel it had a tendency to fully reset itself, this happened several times. The mouse-wheel can be used to increment it, but not decrement, that causes the reset for me.

Отличный симулятор King Air 350i. Симуляция proline 21, отказы, системы. И двигатели ремонтировать после каждого полета не придется (как тут пишет товарищ), если соблюдать режимы. Прежде чем ставить 3, надо POH сначала почитать. Одно-

PREALSOFT - HD CITIES ISTANBUL FSX P3D
Suleyman
Previous comment is %100 wrong. All the monuments mentioned in the comment is in the scenery. And 3d models of them. And also the bridges. Even the latest bridge which was built recently is there. As a born&raised "Istanbuler" I have been using this scenery for quite some time and I'm pretty content with it. Yes there are some minor things here and there but all in all It's a very nice product! After an update it would easily get a 5 star from me!

BDOAVIATION - CAEN CARPIQUET INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX P3D5
Franck
Nice, accurate rendition of that small international airport located in Normandy, France. Easy, reliable installation. -
Convenient place for regional aircrafts to depart to/arrive from airports in the UK I've dropped one star because of the following: 1. the ADEX file is missing the required hold short taxi point for the AI traffic be actually active. No AI traffic departure - it vanishes from parking at the time of departure - nor AI traffic arrival - it vanishes when entering the exit taxiway. You've gotta edit the faulty file through ADEX. 2. Very VAS demanding addon - 800 Mb of VAS on my system - for a somewhat small airport. FSX uesr, be warned: don't ever try to land at tha BDOA's airport with those VAS hungry aircrafts like the Carenado's or the Flight1's. Do go for those 100% VAS efficient aircrafts like the Majestic Dash8-Q400... and others. Chee-

I have ORBX Global Base and instead of the runway there is a mountain (with runway lights)...so it's not REALLY compatible, but overall I am confident, because there's also space enough to land right before the runway...

Very good model and works really perfect. Will like to have the GPS changeable with GTN750 from PMS50 . Some cool options like the side cargo door and the mechanical to digital switchable attitude Indicator.
