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.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

  • Award-Winning Active Sky Weather Simulation Engine – Enhanced Further!
    We’ve been enhancing and growing Active Sky since 2000, and this new version expands our weather engine even further than ever before
  • Enhanced Thunderstorm Effects
    Thunderstorms are now very dangerous, as they are in the real world, and require avoidance, in most cases, to ensure safe and successful completion of your flights – Flying into heavy cells can result in loss of aircraft control and even airframe stress overload
  • Performance-Focused Design
    We’ve taken the previous codebase for Active Sky and re-factored it, tuned it, and re-designed many core areas for increased performance and usability
  • User Interface Improvements
    We’ve incorporated user feedback and made dozens and dozens of improvements throughout the entire UI
  • Hybrid Weather Depiction Technology
    AS16 uses multiple integration and depiction methods to provide realistic, smooth and correct weather and ambient conditions at all times, while also providing full cloud position awareness to enable advanced cloud-synchronized radar, precipitation and air effects
  • High-Fidelity Data Resolution and Coverage
    Active Sky 16 includes enhanced global gridded weather data, global sigmets and airmets, global surface data and global aloft data for much improved realism and coverage for all kinds of conditions in all areas without relying strictly on METAR reports
  • High-Fidelity Air Effects
    Wake Turbulence, Microbursts, Downdrafts, Updrafts, Terrain-influenced Drafts, Thermals and more!
  • Smooth Transitions
    Cloud formations, wind, temperature, visibility and every other aspect of your weather is smoothed, transitioned and interpolated for the ultimate in realism
  • Private Server Network
    AS16 utilizes the high-performance and high-availability HiFi DataNet weather network with multiple servers in multiple regions around the world, providing high-resolution weather data and historical data archives for the past 2 years
  • Online Historical Data with Playback
    Fly in weather at any date/time up to 2 years in the past and have weather update realistically throughout your flight according to hourly-archived conditions
  • Active Sky API
    AS16 utilizes an extended version of the Active Sky API, allowing 3rd party developers to integrate and take advantage of advanced radar, icing, wind shear, weather data and weather controlling extensibility
  • Much More!
    AS16’s full feature list is too numerous to list here, but we invite you to TRY AS16 FREE for yourself and experience all it has to offer!

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.

TERRAINY STUDIOS - RV-8 - MSFS
Andrii
Hard to say, when was the last time I saw so many bugs in such a small plane. There’s exactly as much features, as there are issues with this addon: the lights way too dim, the range way too short, the speed twice slower than stated in the description, some of the buttons like strobe lights don’t work for me at all. The control panel looks really lo-fi, the flickering shadows are all over the place… Some tooltips missing their text, the fuel system requires review as well... I wouldn’t call this a finished product, and the price is way too high for given quality. Feeling a bit disappointed with the purchase.
FSIMSTUDIOS - EDMONTON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT - CYEG P3D
Shahzeb
Fantastic rendition of this airport. Love the scenery and textures. Dynamic lights look stunning! The performence is above expectation as well.
FLYFREESTD - ANTONOV AN-225 MRIYA FOR P3D4.4-5
Jack
Really nice to fly and probably the best $25 I've ever spent on flight sim. Some switches are grouped up but that's to be expected for a $25 addon. My only gripe with it is that it uses the default P3D flight plan menu/system so flying this on VATSIM is pretty hard unless you install a FMC 2d panel like the freeware one by Garrett Smith (the Honeywell one). A fuel planner would be nice along with a Simbrief/PFPX profile.
AEROSOFT - MEGA AIRPORT BARCELONA PROFESSIONAL P3D

Aerosoft has impressed me once again! Beautiful Rendition of Barcelona Airport! Eye catching textures! Dynamic lights are a little bright but its still worth 5 stars. Terminal textures are really well designed. Hats off to aerosoft for this amazing product!

d recommend this airport on sale to anyone who wants a bit of fun flying in, a beautiful approach, and good airport textures. The area around it is just really amazing so I enjoy flying here and its a bonus with the airport having such great textures and terminal modeling
SCENERYTR - LTAC ANKARA ESENBOĞA AIRPORT -MSFS
Jaro
Good airport, nice location Pro-
s - Each gate has good modeling and jetways, very clean and textures are good Runway textures are very nice Outside modeling is decent Cons - Lack of life at the airport - few moving people, vehicles, very barren area Distinct lack of interior modeling. None on the inside and very few details on the dropoff area Gates are pretty barren as well in terms of moving objects/assets -
If you like the area, find this on sale, and have GSX or live traffic, it could really spice it up, and it would be worth the sale price.
WINGSIM - SKSM, SIMON BOLIVAR INTL AIRPORT MSFS
Jaro
Good airport, If you find it on sale it's worth it The area is beautiful and the airport itself is not bad. I appreciate the glass jetways and the detail. The ground textures are decent and the outside modeling is good. I do see a hit to performance (not terrible) but something to note. For such a cool area, short runway, and jetway gates... Pretty cool to buy.
MEX HIGH FLIGHT - GMMX MARRAKECH MENARA INTL AIRPORT MSFS
Jaro
Not A bad airport, just wanted the rating to be fairer. The airport model is nice, and its a beautiful airport. You have the two jetways per gate, walking areas under the terminal, etc. The model around the commercial area is decently detailed as well. It could really do with better ground textures, even though the ones arent bad, they could definitely better the product because the area is so dull in color more textures and taxi textures would make it more enjoyable. If its on sale I think its worth it and you don't have to buy the more expensive one
AEROSOFT - SIM-WINGS PRO MUNICH P3D
Shahzeb
I purchased this product from Aerosoft's website! The scenery is amazing, the textures are lovely. Dynamic light simply makes the scenery look so much better. Performence is also much better than expected considering that its a huge airport. 45+fps during night and 60+fps during day time with AIG traffic. Aerosoft has always provided us with great products. Simply amazing and highly recommended!

Beautiful rendition of the scenery. I love the textures and dynamic lights. The performence is also superb. I highly recommend this scenery!! Infact, i highly recommend all aerosoft products!
