Mac, Linux and 32-bit X-Plane/Windows versions are not supported

Introducing HiFi’s first weather engine for the X-Plane platform……

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

Limitations

Not a complete visual cloud rendering replacement

We have put our previous X-Plane visual cloud rendering replacement efforts on hold (until next year) due to performance considerations and changing API environment/tools that are not yet finalized
We expect our visual cloud rendering replacement technology to debut in Q4 2019, subject to change based on many factors
ASXP features high-performance cloud depiction with a focus on conditions accuracy, utilizing the X-Plane internal cloud rendering via a hybrid API approach, with two different modes available
ASXP also features an optional high-performance photo-realistic cloud texture replacement with a simple texture installation wizard

Windows 64-Bit (v7 or later) Only

Mac, Linux and 32-bit X-Plane/Windows versions are not supported
In a networked environment, the ASXP application/client may run on Windows 32-bit (7 or later), but X-Plane must be 64-bit on Windows 64-bit (7 or later)
We hope to bring additional OS/platform support in the future
X-Plane version 11.26 or later (64-bit for Windows) is required

Just had an experience like never before:
There was hail and lightnings everywhere, my engine really sturggeld keeping up and it was constantly at 100% thrust. The plane was also shaking so I started climbing to get over the clouds, the moment I enter the clouds the winds get worse and I was really sutrggeling keeping the plane straight. Finally after 2 mins im out of the clouds, I was able to roar the engines a bit back but it was still really shaky. Okay so I just want to land now im going down again, the worst choice in xplane ever. the wind was soo strong I swing the joystick from one side to the other at max turn rate, but I just cant handel it, the plane starts descending really quick, and it startet turning and I just wasnt able to rescue it. Then it stalled while I was stalling I got an wind shear warning and a few seconds after hit the ground.
Crazy the weather was just too bad to fly such a small plane, and there was no way to recover.

I honestly can't understand the good critcism for this product. I want to read the reviews, if such a product would be released for P3Dv4.

HiFi always stands for innovative and amazing weather in FSX/P3D. But what they provide for X Plane 11 is a joke, to be honest.

- Bad weather with a "ring" around the aircraft with a good weather on the horizon.
- inaccurate weatherdata (visual to metar)
- very bad visualisation for weather in general.
- horrible turbulences and missing wind data.

What is it that XP only has this alpha/beta kind of weather plugins?

2 stars for still the best weather data out there.

I don't recommend this product at all at the moment!

A must have for X-Plane. I've been using HiFi's weather engine since 2012 and no other weather addon stand a chance against it when it comes to precise weather depictions. However, the ASXP is not at its full potential due to XPL's API is subject to change, give it some time.

This is an excellent product and I know it's only going to get better. Weather is so much better now on my flights and I look forward to their cloud art in the future.

Finally there is ActivSky for X-Plane. Since you know what gets, have used it already for the FSX and for P3D and now finally for X-Plane.
