HiFi Sim announces the update to Active Sky Next!
Written by JT on April 16, 2015
Active Sky Next Service Pack 2B has been officially released!
This new service pack provides many enhancements, fixes, and new compatibility with P3D v2.5 (with optional hotfixes) and FSX:SE. With SP2B, we’ve raised the bar even further in high-fidelity weather simulation.
IMPORTANT NOTE: P3D v2.4 is not supported in ASN SP2B. To use P3D v2.4, please use ASN SP1B and do not upgrade to SP2B. Later SP versions, as always, are designed to integrate with the latest simulator versions and take advantage of newer features.
Thanks go out to all our customers, supporters, staff, developers, private beta team, and all OPEN BETA participants who helped us to get SP2B ready for official release.
