ActiveSky FS Released

Piett, my opinion is that the AS clouds look pretty cool, and appropriately menacing.

My other opinion is that the scenery artist (human or AI?) was pretty foolish to put a windsock in a forest.

I made a video from my first flight with ASFS. I didn't draw any conclusions, as this was the first time I'd tried ASFS, and it was a short flight. I did read the whole manual before the flight, so I had an idea of ASFS features and settings. 

ASFS settings: Realism mode with download interval 15min and smoothing rate 5. 

I chose the location based on a search at https://www.badbadweather.com/thunderstorm

I'd love to hear people's opinions based on the video. It's only 3 minutes long. 

EDIT: Just remembered, I had turbulence setting in MSFS to low (Fenix suggestion). 

 

First, your sim looks great. About windsock presenting almost any wind effect, yesterday i had to edit a scenery (stock) windsock for this reason and replaced it with a custom simobject one (ASFS ON and also only using asobo's live weather wit ASFS closed), it worked as expected after this. My turb msfs settings are set to realistic and ASFS are deafult at 50, i don't fly GA but on the 737 works very good. I love how ASFS sets those presets, when I first tried ASFS, after using asobo's live weather for so long, I was shocked and very pleased to see different type of clouds that brought IMHO a much more real representation of a METAR. As I used historical weather a lot, if not, everytime in the past with p3d, ASFS brings so many more pluses than negatives. Thanks for the video.

It's a fairer example than some of the streamers. Tclouds look quite good. Too bad you had the turb turned down, it might have been a fun ride. 🙂

I’ll probably make an in-depth video with different weather types and aircraft when I have the time. Is realistic turb the recommended setting?

It's personal preference - I keep it on realistic, much more like my old flying days but many folks do not like turbulence so they turn it down. Initially it was recommended to turn it down for the Fenix because it affected the flight model but I believe that was corrected in the last update.

Is the toolbar problem fixed?

I'm going to buy it, but I'm not installing something that is fundamentally incompatible with the base simulator.

I’ll try realistic, bring it on 😅 Also need a lighter aircraft to increase the challenge. Is the JF Tomahawk released yet? (that’s the one I flew the most during my PPL training). I vividly remember how turbulence, drafts and wind shear affected the aircraft (and myself), would be awesome to experience something similar in the sim.

It wasn't the base sim, it was a tool bar add-on that was problematic.

It has not been released yet, but I feel the release is imminent. I am interested to see how it does in your ASFS weather testing videos 😊

I disagree, I actually thought they looked good.

Goes to show there is very varying taste amongst simmers.

Great video. Really showed the product off. Quick question though. Those thunderstorms in the distance at the end of the video, if you had taken off again would you have been able to fly into them, or are they just 'painted' in the distance. (Apologies if it's a dumb question!)

Not a dumb question at all and yes, if you keep flying you will get into the thunderstorm and probably some serious trouble.

Ugh... yeah I'll concede that's different, but Toolbar Pushback is just about required even with GSX, for all of the times that GSX will refuse to work at certain airports.

Sigh. Not for me yet.
