HifiSim has released an SP2 for their AS2012.
A breakdown of the enhancements, please look here:
What I love most about it is the feature at the startup (which can be turned off if you wish) which asks what type of flying you want. This was the weather engine setups up, automatically, the best settings for that type of flying.
I was just flying in the NGX and was testing low altitude VFR and high altitude IFR modes. Both work really well, and the first one was really depicting clouds from horizon to horizon, and I didn’t experience wind problems in neither or. The IFR mode is known DWC mode in AS2012, a global weather setting, which has been made for PMDG aircraft, to prevent sudden wind shifts, realistic wind alofts, all for correct fuel burn and flight planning. The VFR mode offers better and more real cloud depiction, on expense of less realistic flight planing, fuel burn etc.
My thanks go to Damian and the team for the hard work, bringing us possibly the best weather generation for FSX.
Also the very news with the SP2 version is the compatibility with P3D. But be aware that FSX flightplan files (.PLN) in text format cannot be read by P3D because they use an XML format. Vic has found that if you use AS2012 to IMPORT the FSX .pln file, you can then EXPORT it as a P3D XML file and it will load perfectly in P3D. (Thanks Vic)
