Yup, it is pretty damn amazing.  I very often sit in awe of what I'm seeing on my screen.  

Nice shots.

Is there an Upgrade Path for FSX owners?

Great developer!  I was happy to see them ready for P3Dv4 as soon as it came out.

AS16 was released as 2 different products, so you could either buy full FSX, upgrade from ASN into FSX, full P3D or upgrade from ASN into AS16 P3D (I guess that could be it if it's still available).

 

The P3Dv4 is a free upgrade from AS16 P3D

I can clearly remember the early days with FS2004 and ActiveSky when we struggled with winds switching 180* at altitude and causing our tube-liners to either stall or over speed.  It is truly amazing what Damian and his team have achieved since that time.  AS16 is an absolutely essential part of my simming experience.

Thanks for that.  I already have ASN SP4 for FSX/P3D according the email simMarket sent me.

Active Sky is amazing! This is by far the best weather engine EVER produced for any simulator. Congrats to the team!

Awesome!

 

What I don't know is if ASCA has also been made compatible, not yet, or was never needed as it is just textures..?

I must admit that I simply did the update without looking at the change log. Next thing I knew I was getting lovely scenes like this between ENVA and ENBR.

I hadn't thought about those old issues lately, I guess because they don't happen any more, but now you mention I totally agree.
