Active Sky Beta is great!   Won't worry about EA until LM fixes the pixelated edges around trees and buildings and against clouds or background terrain which is terrible.  Very distracting on good visibility days when clouds are in the sky.

Thanks Rod and I Agree about those edges.  But one thing I and noticed about Karl’s video causes me to want to want to remove my ASP3D completely and reinstall.  I noticed his messages of weather updates are working and mine is not  even though I have it checked to show.

.... tomorrow I will reinstall and see what happens,

Karl, thanks for the video   :)

Today from Fall City to S93 in the morning (local time in Washington). Looking nice, I have an update intervall of 5 minutes. But when AS ingests weather that differs from the current one then there is a sudden change (see end of video). I would want at least a bit of transition between the current and the new weather.

Hi Karl,

ASP3D + P3DV5 + EA = No Smooth Reload!!   Page 27 of ASP3D User Guide has a bullet that says,


"Smooth Theme Reload” to update cloud conditions in Theme depiction smoothly
without abrupt transitions (non-EA mode only)


Lots of things don't work correctly when using the beta EA option.  That is why I don't use it.

Thank you Rod. Obviously I didn't read page 27.....  ::)

They will fix it before V6 is around, I hope. In the meantime I'm using it, although sometimes it can be mission critical. Not too long ago, doing a short field landing  with a Hercules visibility changed to zero within no time. My only chance was to press the pause key and change weather.

All are kind of waiting for what P3Dv5 HF2 will look like.. Once that is released would expect more fine tuning of other 3rd part apps like AS.

Hello,
Hifi simulations announced on their website that the open beta for Active Sky for P3dV5 will close on October 10th 2020. So if you want to be qualified for a free upgrade from AS for P3dv4 to the Final v5 version, you ensign for the Open Beta before October 10th.

I was wondering if this is a sign that P3dV5.1 will be released soon?

That new Active Sky (with the updated Cloud Art) is pretty darned neat!  I'm back flying V5, and literally, it is a JOY to be back. 2020 is fun, but I frankly got tired of being a beta tester. Every time I turned around something went screwy ... fixable, but "fun time" lost figuring out the new quirk. Then I came back to V5. OUR Alaska is truely beautiful compared to 2020 ... and there are all the marvelous things we've put in along the route. What's nice is RTMM is pretty stable right now ... once in a while we'll find something to fix, but it is mostly "done." With V5 being stable and RTMM function perfectly, it is a hard combination to beat.

One thing I found, I was having to do more actual "flying" in 2020 ... actually becoming a better pilot. I loved the nav aids that gave me the right and left downwind when I told the airport I was coming in. After a while i turned that off, but I learned a lot about it for "positioning" coming to an airport.  But now in V5, I'm really staying away from the autopilot.  I got the A2A cub (bought it from JustFlight the day before the ORBX announcement for it) and I am really having fun with it.  I did put in a gps and made a little "mini panel" for it that really helps with VFR flying. I love the little 85 hp engine and flying at 70 mph. Perfect for our RTMM low and slow flights ... and ORBX Alaska is unbeatable. The cub float is a lot of fun too.  I will keep up with the updates over at 2020, but I'm pretty sure most of my flying time will be logged in V5. 

Here's the cub with a GPS and minipanel added:

AS Live for P3D v5.1 works fine so far.  I turned off the P3D EA and the clouds improved a lot.
