ASP3D is the latest addition to the ActiveSky weather engine line. ASP3D evolves realism-based weather simulation, building upon the ground-breaking and proven features of ActiveSky while integrating with the latest simulator platform update from Lockheed Martin: Prepar3D v5.2 HF1.

Many of the back-end systems of ActiveSky have been completely redesigned or overhauled for ASP3D

Highlights

  • New P3D Enhanced Atmospherics (EA) integration for improved synthesis, depiction, interpolation, and flight plan awareness.
  • New 5.1 and 5.2-specific EA enhancements including additional cloud transition smoothing, volumetric fog/visibility handling and smoothing, and volumetric cloud depiction configuration options.
  • New P3D add-on folder specification/design, with everything installed outside of the P3D folders – Includes ASCA support (with SP3 Update)
  • New networking design eliminating the need for SimConnect configuration in networked environments – Just install ASP3D, install the included Connector on the server machine, configure your shared paths, and go!
  • New XGauge universal design that works for any aircraft without needing to install into panels – New reworked airborne radar mode visualization with radial signal processing + multiple radar usage capability (you can now use multiple AS Radar API add-on radar displays together along with XGauge airborne radar mode all at the same time)
  • Wind smoothing redesigned for higher frequency force actuation and organic feel

Features

  • New Prepar3D v5 integration with all the standard functionality you’d expect from the ActiveSky weather engine Works with both P3D v5 and P3D v4
  • Works in both standard mode and new “Enhanced Atmospherics” mode with P3Dv5 – See below for EA limitations
  • New 5.1 and 5.2-specific EA enhancements including additional cloud transition smoothing, volumetric fog/visibility handling and smoothing, and volumetric cloud depiction configuration options (when used with optional ASP3D Open Beta update 063021 or later)
  • New P3D add-on specification design with all items installed outside of the P3D folders
  • New Universal XGauge design that works for all aircraft at any time without requiring panel additions
  • New networking design that eliminates the need for SimConnect configuration or use between clients and server – Just install ASP3D on the client, the included AS P3D Connector Installer on the server, make sure your networked shares are configured, and go
  • New EA-mode integration with new interpolation, depiction, synthesis and parameter control for a more accurate experience
  • Includes ASCA integration for cloud and sky graphics enhancements with dynamic cloud and sky texture variation, now working fully outside the P3D folder using the new add-on specification design
  • Major enhancements to the data network, weather synthesis, interpolation, and other core weather simulation and depiction technologies – now with much increased performance, stability and availability
  • Includes the most advanced version of our award-winning core weather engine and weather data services, being refined now for over 20 years

Enhanced Atmospherics

The new Enhanced Atmospherics (EA) mode in P3Dv5 is new and undergoing constant improvements. Some features of ASP3D are not compatible with EA mode. This includes: Cloud detection features, in-cloud motion effect, in-cloud visibility reduction, high-resolution radar/precip accuracy, and some ASCA-integrated enhancements/dynamics. While the EA depiction and API is evolved over time, we will be constantly working to further extend and integrate with this depiction system.

Note: Prepar3D v5.2 HF1 support is now included, with 5.2-specific EA cloud transition smoothing enhancements, visibility smoothing enhancements, and volumetric cloud depiction enhancements.  ASCA cloud texture features are now also available while using EA mode, when Volumetric Clouds are disabled in P3D options, since EA + legacy clouds are now optionally available in v5.2.

Note: For ASCA compatibility, ASCA Build 7884 should be installed.  New ASP3D users with ASCA already installed: Before updating, please perform an uninstallation of ASCA to clear any potential conflicting content.  Then install the latest ASCA full installation and optional HD content from our downloads page at https://hifisimtech.com/downloads.
