Easily create your own texture variations with a few clicks of the mouse. Route awareness, weather-influenced selections, custom themes, universal graphics add-on integration and a clean, intuitive interface provide robust command of the total experience.

    Over 16GB (uncompressed) of beautiful, complex and ultra-realistic graphics textures including Clouds, Sky, Water, Waves, Lights, Roads, Railways, Runways, Taxiways, Sun, Moon, Lense-Flare and more. Dozens of photo-realistic Tropical water sets, new styles of winter runways, and new runway and taxiway textures are also included, in full high-definition quality.

    Several styles of high-quality thunder and rain sounds are provided to accompany your assortment of graphics.

  • Custom 3D Cloud Generation
    Control the generation of your 3D Cloud textures by independently selecting the different elements including Cumulus sprites, Wispy sprites and Stratus sprites.

  • High-Resolution Runways
    You can also control generation of runway textures including the surface style and features (cracks, rubber, oil, dust, etc.) independently. Runway textures are provided in unprecedented resolution and maintain clarity and sharpness even at extreme zoom levels.

  • New Winter Runways
    Photo-realistic runway styles simulating snow, billows, ice and and frozen runway surfaces.

  • Expanded Weather Engine
    Further refinement of our award-winning and time-tested weather engine technology brings increased realism, accuracy and quality of weather depiction.

    Includes Auto-route Building, TOC/TOD Waypoints, Integrated Planning and Mapping, Drag and Drop Waypoints and Plan Export Capability.

  • In-Flight Weather Display Gauge
    XGauge gives full in-flight mapping, radar imagery and textual weather information - Includes XGauge Installation Wizard utility to easily install into your aircraft panels.

  • Accurate Winds Aloft
    Using global forecast data at 60x60nm resolution, winds aloft around the globe are simulated and smoothed using HiFi's exclusive Direct Weather Control techniques.
