Active Sky for P3Dv4 Released

Recommended Posts

I see that Active Sky for P3D version 4 has released. No longer in beta.

Also, there's an update for ASCA, if you're using that product.

FYI

Ah yes, another company who is forcing us to shell out another $57 to be able to use their product in P3D V4

I you own a previous version of AS16 for P3Dv3, your upgrade to ASP4 is free.  Many vendors are releasing their P3Dv4 versions free for users of that same product in P3Dv3.  That's a great deal.

I'm talking about HiFi purposly ending ASN and forcing us to buy AS16 for P3D V4.

It's a great tactic, unfortunately most of you don't see what companies are doing. Just more clever ways of extorting more and more $$$

In all these years flying virtually I've never felt ripped off by Damien and his Company. There were always reasonable update fees, which they deserve for quality products they make and outstanding support. 

The hostility is totally uncalled for.

Mike, My upgrade price from ASN was only $26.99.

Give them a break. This is the absolute best weather generator that money can buy and it's affordable.

Do you work for free, Mitch24?  No doubt it took a good bit of unique coding to make AS16 x64 compatible.  Even if AS16 wasn't the best weather engine out there for Prepar3D (and it definitely is!), Damian and his team would still deserve to get paid for their efforts.  You spend that much when you take someone out for dinner and a movie.

And no one is forcing you.  There are other weather engines available.

So they're "forcing you" to buy their product? Or are you trying to get a product for a different sim for free..?

Some people...

You are so wrong on so many levels. At times like this I wish we could vote people off the site. Extortion is a pretty strong charge to make in public. Hope you lawyer works for nothing. Hello are there any Mods here?

Um yes, but since I have been a beta tester for HiFi for many, many years I'm holding back a bit. Besides,the responses to his unfounded claim from you guys are spot on. He voiced his opinion and community responded.

Just to educate him a tad - although ASN is a weather engine and ASP4 is a weather engine, they are coded in a completely different way. To make ASN compatible with V4 would mean writing a completely new program and calling it ASN. I'm SURE you would just love paying the price for that.

Oh wait, they did that - they wrote a completely new program and called it ASP4. And provided fair upgrade paths for prior users.

Hmm, I didn't know I wasn't allowed to voice my opinion here. I wasn't overly disrespectful to them at all, just expressing my distaste for companies that try and squeeze every dollar out of us.

It's obvious I have been outdone by the HiFi Fanclub here, so I'll leave, thanks. 

Ignorance is bliss I guess.

Actually, I did notice you are a bit screwed as far as any upgrade options are available if you got for example ASN on Steam, there's really no options for upgrading to more recent versions from that purchase choice.

Voicing an opinion is fine, claiming extortion is over the top. 

Enough said.
