This is an awesome news!I'm only flying gliders and use sp2+asx+cumulusX+simprobeI have few questions:-is ASA compatible with fsx sp1?-How does this technology compare with CumulusX/Simprobe?

New Vertical Air Simulation TechnologyFor both FS9 and FSX, new realistic up and downdrafts as well as thermals and ridge lift are simulated throughout your flight.
Ridge lifts are simulated real time without the need of a slope database or anything else?Seriously I was hoping for thermal/ridge lift simulation integrated in asx one day, still cant believe my dreams came real now. :(

One of the most important features in ASV6.5 for me is the ability to manually re-fresh AI. Will this still be possible in ASA?

  • Will the new interpolation significantly reduce the the lack of weather in my immediate vacinity (under my aircraft) and/or a particular quadrant?
  • What happens if a user uploads and erroneous or autdated PIREP?
  • Is FSUIPC (Reg'd) still the recommended/best smoothing device for FSX?
  • Does enabling virtual-stations (to fill the gaps) still put a big hit (stutters) during updates?
  • Is transoceanic coverage any better?
  • Does the winds-aloft briefing now include multiple flight-levels and their associated averages for big-irons to decide the best enroute FL?
  • Is XGraphics still a standalone sister-application or is it now completely included in ASA?

Hi, I miss the Temperature Column in the flightlog screenshots like in AS 6.5. Is there a way to get the temperature for the enroute waypoints on a specific flight level. This is very important for PMDG MD-11 users, as the fuel may starts freezing when it is too cold. Jan-Paul

Hiya Carl, good to see ya! One question, has the issue with multiplayer been fixed? Specifically with the host being unable to use ASX as players can't join the session if the host has it active.TksJay

Wondering about this myself also will there be a discount for people who already purchase ASX? The part about getting rid of that solid haze layer has sold it for me.The rest is just icing. :(

Cannot decipher from what I read on the website but with the new ASA, can you manually put in a flightplan now or do you still have to import one? Reason being is I normally get mine from a realworld website that has the actual plans in use and then manually input it into my FMC. Would be nice to manually input a flightplan into ASA. As well, is this coming with a new graphics package as far as clouds are concerned or are we keeping the ones from AS6.5?Thanks.

What are the improvements and additions over ASX that makes this product worth a purchase? More specifically, have you managed to get rid of the loss of haze that occasionally occurs in ASX?

Cool! I too have just purchased REX but have yet to successfully get it up and running. Any beta testers want to share their thoughts on ASX and REX?

I've been holding off on buying REX, and now that ASA is just around the corner I will purchase ASA instead. It's apparent that your weather simulation is far superior to REX! I guess I will use my FEX textures with ASA.Congratulations!

One question springs to my mind - I see reference to a weather avoidance guage in ASA. Does this mean that it will more accurately depict wx en route than the current version. As has been said a number of times, the current guage is not meant to be a 'weather radar' so I'm wondering what the purpose of the new one will be.Bud

Oh, wow... :( . Aerosoft, get your glider ready ! Now this are news i didn't expect. Looking forward to polish the ridges :(
Does this feature work perfectly in combination with other texture add ons like REX or FEX? Or is it necessary to install the clouds from XGraphics?
I am very sure that it will work just perfect with other environment addons as well.
