Thank you for your inquiry. REX Essential OD was released in 2010 and is an all encompassing product which includes textures (from our original release in 2008 with REX 1, and some additional new textures), flight planner, weather engine. REX 4 Texture Direct was released Q4 2013 and is only a texture enhancement program, with all new textures different from REX Essential. Especially, for support for P3D 2 and now 3. It does not include a weather engine or flight planner. REX 4 Weather Architect was released July 2015 and is only a custom weather creation engine. It allows you to create weather anywhere in the world. It is not a real-time weather engine. However, it has a link to Texture Direct so that it will call textures based upon the weather you create. Upcoming products: - REX 4 Weather Force - will be our new comprehensive real-time weather engine based upon the EnvironmentFORCE API. - REX 4 Environment Force - will our new real-time environment modification tool. Allows real time changes while in sim that greatly enhances the environment of Texture Direct and any weather engine.
Thank you for your inquiry into the different products that REX offers. First before I answer your questions, I would strongly recommend that you review our website http://rexsimulations.com as this will give you the best overview of what each product does. I will give you a high level view here: First, you do not need to remove REX Essential Plus. It has its own unique textures, plus flight planner, and weather engine. Even though the product was released in 2010 it is relevant with great results. If you are interested in REX Texture Direct, I would recommend getting REX 4 Texture Direct with Soft Clouds. All the textures within REX 4 Texture Direct / Soft Clouds are brand new since release in 2014 and include all the new tech we have learned from the release of REX 3 Essential Plus. However, it is ONLY a texture package. It does not include a flight planner or weather engine. However, you can still use the weather engine of REX 3 with REX 4. REX 4 Weather Architect is ONLY a weather engine, but works with REX 4 Texture Direct or REX 4 Texture Direct with Soft Clouds. Weather Architect however, is ONLY a custom weather creation tool and NOT a real time weather engine. Our real-time weather engine tool will be Weather Force (old name Weather Direct) that will be released later.
I hope this helps. Feel free to ask more questions if you have them.
Thank you for your question. REX Essential Plus Overdrive as you know is a full service product with textures, flight planner, and weather engine, but was released in 2010. Textures were mostly from the initial release in 2007 with some modifications/additions for use with Prepar3D v1, 2. REX 4 - Texture Direct - is NOT a weather engine, is NOT a flight planner, but IS a full texture replacement system. All the textures are brand new and have been optimized from our years of operation. They have been enhanced for FSX, FSX Steam, and all versions of P3D.
