HiFi Simulations has today released their highly anticipated weather engine add-on, Active Sky, for X-Plane!
This is the company’s first venture into the world of X-Plane, they have until now, exclusively developed products for Microsoft ESP based platforms.
Using a hybrid weather depiction interface through X-Plane 11’s weather API, a realistic, high-performance and high-fidelity weather experience has been realised.
The product is feature rich and includes Active Sky’s famous ‘Active Air’ technology which “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.”
They also acknowledge the product’s limitations as its not a complete visual replacement for X-Plane’s weather depictions yet, this is set to come in Q4 of 2019.
