Active Sky Cloud Art for FSX & P3D - Released!

Recommended Posts

@diddy64 - Have you tried Run As Administrator? If you run task manager - does as16 show up in process list?

 

Have you looked at the logs in

C:\Users\<you>\AppData\Roaming\HiFi\AS16_P3D

 

Might give you a clue as to what is happening.

The lighting is so different now as HDR is too bright and washed out again.  No HDR is now bright enough and looks much natural so I'm using that.

I hope HiFi can develop their own set of soft cloud textures. I don't want to give up the in sim texture changes I am now getting.

 

There are some "soft" cloud sets included, but its very dynamic.  Perhaps not enough.  With that, we are certainly listening to feedback and prioritizing our efforts for the next big content update for ASCA based on this, which will be free.  Thanks for continued feedback and support of our efforts!

For those wondering on performance with overcast with both AS16 and ASCA, in a word, negligible. Much better performance for me. No loss of frames at all. And this was going into NY area with the new ImagineSim KLGA and FSDT KJFK active, Orbx Vector 1.4 and FTXG in the NGX. VERY impressed with performance. I am using 2048DXT for both cloud sets. On P3D v3.3.5.

So can anyone tell me whats the difference between these 2 new products vs ASN and REX combo?  With all these new screenshots ive seen I cant tell the difference tbh.

 

That's an easy one: ASN + REX looks time better than this + ASCA .. because ASCA textures looks horrible.

In other words, purchasing AS16 + ASCA at the moment is not only a waste of money, it's actually a (visual) downgrade!

For the record that's your personal view and opinion based on a few screenshots...

 

Actually he is right.. ASCA looks terrible, it even worse than P3D default textures!

No. Actually, this is still opinion. Sorry to say.

Hilarious. This is still your opinion. That's the only fact here. I'm not saying I like them or not here either. Might end up agreeing with you in the end myself. I am leaning towards liking REX better. But even if I end up at that conclusion, it's still opinion. There is no way to make this FACT. Each of us have our own interpretation of what we see as real. That doesn't make it fact.

Anyone with a pair of working eyes could notice the difference between that and this (here i'm using REX SC):

Sorry. Not trying to fight or anything. Just don't like posts where people try to pass their opinion off as fact. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. There are some people that think these are very real looking. What makes your opinion fact and theirs not?

What cloud set were you using when you had this result, have you tried different ones?

 

Reason I ask is I also used REX SC all the time and when I started using ASCA first just like you I often found ASCA clouds to look very cartoonish and "painted" and I did provide my feedback on to the developers and now in the finished product and using Global Automatic I think the clouds most of the time look really good!

 

Another thing I really like with ASCA in combination with AS16 is how things look different from flight to flight both looking at the clouds but also the sky. Compared to when I was using REX SC when it did look nice and "realistic" but the overall "look" never changed.

 

I'm not trying to argue with you and I can see where you're coming from, I just suggest give it some time and set ASCA to use the Global Automatic theme/set and see what you think after doing some flying in different places and weather conditions.

 

Happy flying whatever cloud textures you end up using :smile:
