To Damian and Kostas and all the ASN Beta testers, a big thank you from me.

 

This is what we always wanted and its met my expectations. From the cleaner interface, easy set up and use, to additional features (destination airport ATIS, always wanted that, now why didn't anyone else but you guys think of that! So useful), Active Sky has come-of age.

 

Just done a quick flight around Cape Town. The "South Easter" is blowing today (mild 14kts), and it makes flying low around Table Mountain area very dangerous, with sweeping downdrafts along the north-facing mountain fronts, and updrafts / ridge lift  along the south-facing slopes. Tested this out and for the first time in sim history its really there! Watch out pilots! That is at 14kts, will be tricky at 40!

 

This product is going to transform GA flying.

I'm impressed by a couple of hours with the demo already.

 

Does the online check on startup end after purchasing a full licence? Thanks!!

Yes I love it too, brings a massive realism boost, cant wait to see this in P3d V2, I had a simconnect issue but the service was first class as usual and I am all sorted, Thanks HiFI

Yes, the online check at startup is specific to the trial only.

If I install the paid version and then upgrade my MB and CPU, will I be able to reactivate ASN ?

Thanks ALlen.

 

Yes, approximately 10 new reactivations on new hardware is permitted before you need to contact us to reset this.

Add me to the list that can't wait to see this in P3DV2.

 

Anyone have screenshot for FSX?

Damn... I was hoping I wasn't going to have to do an FSX reinstall, but the product sounds too good to not check out.

 

I wish it worked with P3D v1.4

Random stuff: These 'misty fjords' are actually situated in 'Tongas Fjords'. I was checking the default scenery with ASN running in order to find out what it's like there without the addon scenery. So don't look at the ground - look at the sky!

Thanks so much, hi-fi team for creating a wonderful software that finally delivers uncompromised weather. At first, I thought the term was a bit stretched. From just the first few flights I took the weather engine running on trial, I knew this would be the future of weather injection. I'm looking to purchase the full upgrade this weekend.

 

I look forward to future releases and support for prepar3d v2.

 

Thanks

Hi Folks!

Just wanted to confirm that ASN is in fact a big enhancement.

I just flew today's Ryanair B737-800 EI-EMO on flight FR 6318 from EBCI to LFML.

The dusk arrival with temperatures at Marseille airport of just +3°C (quite low for the mediterranean region) became quite cloudy...

See yourselves, especially the clouds between the mountains look quite "volumetric"...

(these are 1280x720 pixels and "left-eye-only" captures from nvidia 3d vision2...)

 

Beside the good optical impression, also the technical refinements like precipitation below clouds, turbulence layers, temperature and pressure graduation,  wind (w/v) changes etc. are very convincing.

The UI (user interface) became as "adult" as the p3dv2 interface introduced "the new matter-of-factness"... Less gaming more learning.

Some nice features of the AS2012 UI I miss a bit, as I did with some of ASE features. But at the end of the day it is all about progress. And here the new "forecast" term is quite nice in the briefing, because ASN caculates w/x data/forecasts for the time of arrival (ETA)...
 
Always happy landings,
Claus

I have to correct myself:

The screen captures actually show the dawn approach of FR 6318 ...

(sorry for the confusion...)

Hi

 

Flew into LSZH today with low vis due to fog and mist etc. Amazing!!! Been flying around Europe last couple of days and didn't see any difference between ASE and ASN. But landing in ENZV was pretty good with the broken at 800 but Zurich did it for me

Europe had low temps with high humidity and (interestingly) sometimes combined with windy conditions for the last two or more weeks. That is really one of the big challenges to "wait for the rabbits (flashing approach lights)". Getting visual contact with the approach lights while having a nice WCA (wind correction angle) is quite seldom, as normally foggy conditions don't come with winds...

 

For me AS2012 was always very good (I still use it with P3Dv2), because it really could give you IFR impressions for the first time. ASN has added realism in many ways. One for example is, that it generates WX out of the box without too much fiddling for perfection by the user. In the end the user adjusts more or less performance matters only.

So I like ASN, from what I have seen for the last week in autumn wx conditions, very much.

 

Always happy landings,

Claus

 

Edit: I just noticed you were mentioning ASE. I have/had ASE, too. I liked it very much because of its "revolutionary" interface and possibilities. The WX generation was good, no doubt. But what AS2012 brought for me into play was added IFR realism, as I mentioned already above. Especially regarding visibility matters in the region between top and bottom cloud layers (if there was any). ASN does (again) so many improved things in addition, from a different approach to its predecessor.

If you haven't done so already, you might scroll up this thread "Thank you HIFI" here, where users describe their experiences.
