  1. Today we are pleased to announce new integration with SkyMaxx Pro v4.7+ and FS Global Real Weather. In order to take advantage of these features you will also need to have Real Weather Connector installed. Any current customers of SkyMaxx Pro v4 as of the moment of this writing will receive an e-mail with a 30% discount code off retail price of FS Global Real Weather. The discount will be valid for 30 days. When SkyMaxx Pro v4.7 and Real Weather Connector are installed, you will now see the following FSGRW / External Injector option for Real Weather Connector settings: The Press Release is as follows: Maxx XP, in collaboration with Sundog Software, is pleased to announce a cooperation with PILOT’S to facilitate creating an incredibly immersive and extremely realistic real-time weather environment for X-Plane 11. PILOT’S FS Global Real Weather, the highly acclaimed weather engine for X-Plane 11, has been adapted from build 403 onwards to fully interact with Sundog Software’s Real Weather Connector and the newly released Maxx XP SkyMaxx Pro v4.7 update! The FS Global Real Weather engine is 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 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.

    You should take that up with Jason directly. As a member of our beta team he sings high praises and we listened carefully to his input. I'm not going to dispute a guy who has tons of hours in the aircraft that he personally owns.

    SkyMaxx Pro v4.7.2 Update Released!

    For Mac users: the error is because you did not eject and remove the previous 4.7.0 SkyMaxx Pro DMG file. For Windows users: if you get the same error you're running an old version of the installer and need to re-download.

    Problems with Bitdefender and X-Aviation

    It's happening because of what Bitdefender already tells you. Been documented many times. Bitdefender updated their app to not accept non-https sending. It's not a trivial thing to change, and I have no idea when we'll get to it.

    CTD SMP 4.7 w/TBM 900 XP 11.30b7

    I don't have any other reports of this at all. Do you have some kind of a shader app? I've just tested with the TBM and I also don't have an issue, either on Mac or Windows. Have you tried this in 11.26 instead of a beta?

    SAAB 340 64bit version

    I have no idea what this even means. X-Plane is a 64 but app. We only sell 64-bit products. We do not support 32 bit anything.

    SkyMaxx Pro v4.7.2 Update Released!

    Well, I didn't ask you to do all of that. I just asked you to do one simple thing that another person reported fixed it, and also after I told you to try it once more. Anyways, you're now going to need to fully re-download the installer to get it working.

    Move your mouse to the right side of the screen where the menu pops out. Click the key icon, and then click 'Update'. You will also then need to likely go to your plugin menu and turn on SkyMaxx Pro.

    Mac Crash SkyMaxx Pro 4.7

    You're not understanding me at all. There are NO new files to be downloaded. The code to activate it is integrated into SMP 4.7 itself. You do NOT need to download anything.
  21. Wrong. It does update. There are no new files on your end, as it's activated inside of SMP 4.7 alone. The promotional info was correct.

    Mac Crash SkyMaxx Pro 4.7

    RWC is updated only if you have it already installed. The features of it are unlocked in 4.7. You'll see the menu items change accordingly with 4.7 installed.
  24. I think you are speaking about the installer. That's okay to ignore, as it is a warning from Apple about the future and not present. It worked fine on your computer.
