Not enabling detailed clouds (and instead using simple non-3D clouds) will produce a block pattern on radar imagery including 3rd party NDs using Active Sky Radar integration.

This is a known configuration issue. The simulator is incorrectly set to simple (non-detailed) clouds which are essentially low-resolution rectangles and the radar/precipitation is correct given the low resolution of the precipitation boundaries in this mode.  


To correct this issue, please follow these instructions:


  1. Open FSX or Prepar3D
  2. Go To Options/Settings/Display/Weather
  3. In the Cloud Details, enable Detailed Clouds
  4. Set to Cloud Density to Maximum
