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!

AFS-DESIGN - PANAVIA TORNADO V2 FSX STEAM
David
Another AFS product that looks to offer a lot for the money but plagued with bugs. First off the flight models are not quite up to snuff compared to other makers of this same plane, but not really that bad either. The interiors are low Rez maybe slightly better than an average Virtavia cirque 2015 but some gauges do not work and others make no sense. For example the fuel flow never moves beyond its apparently locked position at 100% The inflight refuel fails to actually refuel. The tanker shows but no matter the speed or altitude you get no gas ever. The throttle goes straight to full afterburner half way up. You cannot fly more than barely 200kias without afterburner at altitude (such as FL360 plus) so you either fly full burn at high Mach speeds burning your fuel up nice and quick, or chug along like a struggling Cessna 208 past it’s ceiling. The auto pilot doesn’t have a speed hold so no joy there either. The missions don’t work, though you can technically select and fly them. The issue is no flight plan and no briefing can be located during the mission. So you have to take notes and prepare your flight like it were a WW2 era pencil and paper kind of thing. Unless you have a good memory and the pre flight briefing sticks in your head. Whatever you do you will not ever get a completion confirmation afterward. Rostock is supposed to be included with certain scenery updates but it hasn’t changed on bit after installing. Lighting up the GPS button should enable flight following of the GPS plan but it doesn’t. You have to select NAV to follow GPS which begs the question why even have a GPS button? 2 stars because I like the liveries and it can be fun to fly once in a while when I just want to go fast for a little bit, but other than that the noted problems make it not worth doing anything beyond that. Another AFS WTF product leaving a bad taste in my mouth. If they do a FREE update fixing all the problems it currently has, then it could be a fair 4 star product. Not today though. Based on FSX SE Win10 3.2 ghz I7 16GB RAM
AFS-DESIGN - EUROFIGHTER TYPHOON PROFESSIONAL 6 FSX STEAM
David
This is one of AFS better offerings. A pretty decent model inside and out with a nice selection of liveries. I have a Typhoon by another developer that is much better, but it doesn’t have many liveries at all. What sold me on this was the inflight refuel option in addition to the generous amount of liveries. There are aspects of this plane that feel off so to speak but for the money it’s hardly anything to complain about. All things considered this is my favorite AFS product.
JOHN DOWSON - FSUIPC7 FOR MSFS
Jan
Necessary thing for MSFS. The only thing that does not work is Save during the flight or its possibility of uploading, it does not work in MSFS, perhaps for now. I think the problem is not in this application but in loading the * flt file in MSFS. I take the autosave and its full operation as a necessary part of MSFS, which is still in development for me even when it is sold. If I read a flt file, the 'nose' of the plane climbs in the graphical interface of the MSFS menu / from the planet / and nothing will be read. Maybe updates for next times MSFS.
AEROSOFT - SIM-WINGS MUNICH MSFS
Jan
Munich Airport is just as well graphically and stably as the FSX version. Unfor-
tunately, I have to give 4 stars because no discount was provided due to the fact that he had purchased the scenery for FSX as well. Is anyone second only because he did not buy a version for P3D but for FSX?? The discount at the same airport only for MSFS should be the same for different previous versions.
ZINERTEK - ENHANCED AIRPORT GRAPHICS MSFS
Jan
Perfect. A good utility for MSFS that should not be missing!
JETSTREAM DESIGNS - MILANO LINATE LIML - MSFS
Jan
Perfect! No problems with quality,FPS.Sta-
ble airport. Good work.
JUSTSIM - PALMA DE MALLORCA AIRPORT MSFS

Good work,good quality,FPS and stable.No problem.Nice!
SIMBREEZE - HURGHADA HEGN MSFS
Jan
I am very pleased that Simbreeze also released HEGN for MSFS. I missed this holiday destination and I appreciate the discount on the purchase, given that he had bought the original FSX, which unfortunately went aside. Good FPS, good quality and stable! Thanks! More such. What about Sharm El Sheik or Tunisian Djerba, Monastir, Enfidha? I would buy now :-(
JUSTSIM - EBBR - BRUSSELS-NATIONAL AIRPORT MSFS
Jan
1.Graphic processing of the airport is at an excellent level. Good frame, good texture resolution. 2. I don't know why, but during the night landing my taxiway disturbs my blue lights, which are even where they don't have an apartment. Don't they overlap from the original default? It is, of course, such a small detail, but above all the graphic design and FPS are evaluated, so I give 5 stars. Minor shortcomings will hopefully be eliminated in the future.
