SkyMaxx Pro v4.7 Released


SkyMaxx Pro version 4.7 is now available.

This update integrates with PILOT’S to create an immersive and realistic real-time weather environment for X-Plane 11. PILOT’S FS Global Real Weather (FSGRW ), is a weather engine that has been adapted to fully interact with real weather connector and the SkyMaxx Pro v4.7 update.

NEW FSGRW Integration
The FS Global Real Weather engine is now able to process a wide variety of cloud identifiers, such as Cirrus, Cumulus, Stratus, Cumulonimbus and Towering Cumulus. Cirrocumulus, Nimbostratus and Stratocumulus depiction in X-Plane 11 is planned for the near future. This detailed, cloud-specific information is passed onto Real Weather Connector, allowing SkyMaxx Pro v4 cloud types and their corresponding cloud textures in X-Plane 11 to be correctly interpreted and drawn for different altitude levels, while at the same time FS Global Real Weather injects real-time wind data into X-Plane 11. This adds a highly sophisticated level of realism to the X-Plane 11 world and greatly enhances the immersive environment for both low-level GA flyers and high-altitude airline pilots.

Version 4.7 is free for existing customers of SkyMaxx Pro version 4.
