How is it on framerates? I found ASX for some odd reason would drop my fps significantly on approach consistently every time, while default weather and REX wouldn't. I know others with ASX that don't see that though so I have no clue what causes it.

It's alot better. I am able to bump my traffic and graphic settings up a little more then I usually kept them at.And I run on an old box.

After trying it out for a couple of hours now, I have to say ASA is outstanding - it adds a new level of realism to FSX. ASA delivers, get it - you won't regret it a second.

To be a little more detailed: I am using it with REX textures. REX weather engine was kinda letdown, especially for users with a non-english version of the OS (it didn't work at all). And they, in my opinion, completely screwed the handling of visibility. But their textures and skies are top notch. So, ASA puts their textures to good use. It's a pleasure to fly with real weather using ASA.The next plus is how ASA handles wind and turbulences. FINALLY, the issues with those sudden wind changes in FSX are solved. Entering clouds and feeling the turbulences is an experience of its own. Those things that weren't right in ASX seem to be completely fixed, the fog layer simulation is beautiful.ASA and FSPassengersX are the best xmas presents for flightsimmers :-)

Oooh, that can be so hard to do sometimes, especially with new toys on the computer.

I never really warmed to ASX, it never seemed to work correctly for me, especially as ASv6 was so good. I put it down to FSX just not being up to it.But i have to say after having spent all day with ASA its absolutely outstanding. It gives me more confidence to make the permanent switch to FSX, especially with the Round the World Race coming up in February

The name Advanced suits this weather engine perfectly. Top notch. I couldn't stop flying tonight because ASA combined with FEX textures gave me a thrilling experience. Thanx guys :(

Yes it does. There are options related to haze layer and fog table generation that give you some options to get rid of the spilled milk cloud look.Enjoy!
