You might wonder why would I need the ActiGate module? What does it do for me?

This module gives you access to variables that are normally not available to the scenery. The module reads this information from pieces of the FS memory that scenery can not read directly (FSUIPC is used for this). And using the information special values are written to the user variables of the scenery. Your scenery can then check these variables to perform special actions.

Among the variables available through the module are:
  • Aircraft type used by the user
  • If the parking brake is set or not
  • If it is raining or snowing
  • The day of the week

For more details on how to work with these new variables, please download the Developers SDK for ActiGate. You can get it from the Download Center

Yes, must be an old link to the previous download section. But the one you posted is indeed correct.
