But to be honest, even if FSLabs would release it now for v5...who knows what happends with our Airbus when AS is finished? As for now, the windshift issue hasn't been fixed by LM and we all know what happened when our active sky settings were wrong.

There beta is due out within the next couple days (if goes as planned) I would imagine they both have been working together as both company work well together

Hopefully, AS can fix it without another HF by LM.

A few other weather devs managed to do a work around and "fixed" it.

But getting rid of winds aloft isn’t really fixing it, just pushing the can down the road and throwing realism out the window.

From what I have heard AS will work with both normal and the enhanced atmospheric stuff. I think the wait will be well worth for AS.

Not likely. Going from DX11 to 12 is not easy and if FSLABS or any devs rely on DX for things then it will need to be recoded and then beta tested etc. I am sure they are deep in beta testing trying to iron out issues before handing it over to us. We will hopefully see stuff soon but quality work takes time.

I do not have any issues myself that crash the sim etc. However FSLABS may be running into issues or they are finishing up beta testing or still coding, Nobody knows right now besides them, We have to wait for Lefteris to let us know.

Hopefully sooner than later.

Norman's only allowed out 2 days a week. Lefteris keeps him in a cage & when his good. He gets an extra day off

It's also a totally pointless question given that Norman can't really disclose anything. 

But then Marc knows that.

Potentially we could.  But we are in a particularly evil mood right now :) 

Some eagle eyed people did see some of us flying online with registrations in remarks.

Haha don't worry I understand; I have seen the usual liveries and the ones previewed of course (which I must add look brilliant)

I have now started flying in the United States in the sim after only ever flying in Europe; do some of the lesser known sharklet operators from the US like Frontier and Alaska have liveries already?

Thanks Norman :)

Caveat: I'm only joking.   Needs to be said in case somebody takes it seriously.

Why on earth would you be doing that?!  They spell things wrong and worse, they have their own flight plan rules and stuff.  :P

Just the CEO. I dont think there is a NEO planned atm. At least not publicly.

I am totally fine with my v5 HF1 installed. Still waiting for my fav addons like FSL, PMDG or REX/ActiveSky but it works great and to be honest: to sit outside, enjoy a drink or two while BBQ is so great and really keeps me away of driving crazy cuz of my missing FSL! :) 

But someone at FSL could show us really something now! We haven't got anything for a while now :(

I have to say, LM's move to integrate Enhanced Atmospherics into the sim as an experimental addition (while seemingly not consulting other addon developers about how they can work alongside it, and not providing any API or SDK control for it) further underlines the assertion that this was a rushed release. 

ActiveSky basically doesn't work with it, from my understanding of their news update, especially this bit:

i dont think it was rushed, we dont know when LM decided to implement truesky. AS works with EA but you might see some issues with it that is how i see it. now if you want to run ASCA then you are stuck with the normal mode. while truesky does have an SDK that is available to developers however it is very hard for 3rd parties to use it.

Of course, but the screengrab I've included lists a significant number of features that don't work with it. 

Reading between the lines, if you want weather depiction that reflects what you'd actually see in real life, you'll have to do so without TrueSky until it gets further developed. 

I'm not complaining; just think people will need to be aware of potential issues. .

I'm basing that on the response of other developers, who have said that it was released much sooner than they expected it to be.
