Whats The Diff In Active Sky AS 6.5 Vs ASA For S9

Sun May 17, 2009 2:26 pm

Hey-
Looking to make my birthday wish list and I thought that Active Sky would be a nice addition to my Flight Sim expereince. When I look at HiFi's website (http://www.hifisim.com) they have ActiveSky 6.5 and Active Sky Advanced. What are the main differences between the two products and which do you recommend over the other and why OR if there are any newer/better weather products out there let me know!
Thanks!

ASA seems to do better weather simulation.

The most obvious benefit is that it is smoother at higher altitudes - there are no wildly abrupt changes of temperature.

Quoting Cpd (Reply 1):

What about wildly abrupt changes in wind direction and/or speed?

If i purchase ASA and Ground Enviroment, it'll bring my Flight Sim experience to a new level, right?
