We're very excited to introduce you to REX4 Texture Direct HD!


REX Texture Direct is a NEW integrated global environment texture utility and effects add-on for Microsoft FSX, PREPAR3D v1.4 and v2 and is DX9, DX10 and DX11 compliant!

REX Texture Direct takes advantage of the new core features of PREPAR3D v2 while enhancing both FSX and PREPAR3D v.1.4 to never before seen heights. Compiled from years of feedback from current REX users, all facets of the program include desired features, effects, sounds and textures.
Tailored for low AND high-end systems, REX Texture Direct is comprised of over 16GB of material ranging from standard resolution to high-definition choices.
Current REX users will recognize the realism and quality synonymous with REX in an all new program. Fidelity is much more inherent due to higher definition source material and yields a top quality end result, even at lower resolution settings. Texture Direct also features the latest technology and state-of-the-art features for a mind-blowing experience.
All NEW textures and effects... over 16,000 files, most with enhanced algorithms. Texture Direct has a large, easy to read user-interface, and texture installation is lightning fast! The user has the ability to select and install textures individually and/or create custom 'themes' to install a full suite of textures instantly.
Powerful new theme protocols: Local, Weather or Community, where users have the ability to share texture sets (themes) with others using REX Texture Direct. Users may select weather scenario's or airport codes in order to have texture themes generated based upon weather conditions, regardless of which weather engine is in use. There's also a facility that will auto-start simulator after texture injection.
You may easily switch between simulator preference (FSX, P3Dv1.4 & P3Dv2) and is fully network capable.
There's a built in system notification area advising you of critical program feedback, update alerts or shared themes. Checking for updates is now simple via the settings screen.
Powerful back end server technology is the foundation for the NEW cloud based theme-controlled center within Texture Direct. Here you can take control of three types of theme based protocols:
MY THEMES – Allows users to control the creation or AUTO creation of texture based themes. The user may save, install, delete or SHARE these themes with fellow REX users around the world.
COMMUNITY THEMES - Allows users to utilize a new system to rate themes, thus interacting with other users for a roadmap to success. Records are stored within 'banks' and may be accessed by simply navigating or filtering database results, as well as using a search utility.
WEATHER THEMES – A NEW concept using an Intelligent Synopsis protocol. The user selects a desired ICAO code location, and Texture Direct will fetch the current METAR, which in turn generates a graphical synopsis based on the results. REX then generates textures based on this overview, REGARDLESS of which weather engine is in use. Again, from here you may save or share these conditions with the rest of the REX user community via the cloud servers.
Installing textures into the simulator are lightning fast, in most instances this process takes less than 5 seconds to load a full suite of replacement textures!
  • All NEW textures and effects... over 16,000 files! (16 GB)
  • Intellectually Synced Texture Engine works hand-in-hand with REX4 Weather Direct and REX4 Architect
  • Enhanced algorithms
  • Large, easy to read user-interface
  • Lightning fast texture installation
  • Ability to select and install textures individually and/or create custom 'themes' to install a full suite of textures instantly
  • Powerful new theme protocols: Local, Weather or Community, where users have the ability to share texture sets (themes) with others using Texture Direct
  • Rating system for shared themes
  • Ability for users to select weather scenario's or enter airport code to have texture themes generated based upon weather conditions, regardless of which weather engine is in use
  • Ability to auto start simulator after texture injection
  • Easily switch between simulator preference (FSX, P3Dv1.4 & P3Dv2)
  • Network capable
  • In-app system notifications
  • Check for updates feature built-in
  • DX9, DX10 and DX11 compliant
  • New unique types of cloud base structures
  • Low/Mid-level 3D clouds, including Stratus, Cumulonimbus, Cumulus, Stratocumulus, Altostratus and Altocumulus
  • High-level clouds, including Cirrus, Cirrostratus and Cirrocumulus
  • 14 types of lightning: IC, CC and CG
  • Worldwide tropical water classification fix, eliminating the repetitive texture tiling effect. Water boundaries blend much more realistically
  • Water textures and wave animations compliant with DX9, DX10 and DX11.
  • Ultra-realistic airport environments made from custom, high-definition aerial photography
  • Give ALL default airports in FSX and Prepar3D the payware-style treatment, from light to heavy use runways, taxiways and pavement markings! Textures so detailed, including runway textured lighting encasements. Originating from HD source photography, runway tire markings are properly scaled within the simulator creating a more realistic viewpoint. Runways with light or heavy wear... you choice, over 32 to choose from, the highest definition textures with the most fidelity on the market!
  • The tire marking build-up is fascinating when using the heavy use runway option. Many types of runway grooving and material selection
  • Runway lighting encasement textures added to runways to give more depth and a more properly scaled feel
  • FINALLY, dirty and soiled runway markings at all airport runways worldwide! No more blown out white marks interfering with your immersion
  • Runway markings now support larger aircraft such as the Boeing 777
  • 28 amazingly detailed taxiways developed from all types of concrete, asphalt and bitumen
  • Runway and taxiway detailed planar bump-map effects
  • Spectacular terrain bump-mapping effects, modeled from different materials. Support for ORBX airports
  • High-definition taxiway markings with extreme clarity
  • Beautiful photo-realistic skies sampled from many locations around the world. HDR texture option included for Prepar3D v2!
  • Properly balanced terrain light and shadow values during dawn and dusk
  • Smoother transitional algorithms during dawn and dusk times
  • Realistic corresponding haze layer values when encountering the proper WX
  • 23 types of runway edge and taxiway lighting, some with simulated ground glow
  • Extremely detailed and enhanced ground rain effect
  • Realistic dirty airport parking and jetway marks
  • Easy to read, enhanced airport signage. Different lighting conditions dictate the range of colors from yellow to orange and red to amber. A wonderful shiny finish with matte black backings
  • Sun, corona, glow, flares and special effects, giving the most realistic renditions of atmospheric conditions. Panning around your aircraft at different angles during beginning or end of day will yield just how dynamic these effects can be. Rendered for DX9, DX10 and DX11!
  • With REX leading the way in water rendering, the new tech built into REX Texture Direct will leave you speechless. Rendered for DX9, DX10 and DX11.
  • Environment sound effects. Jaw-dropping in/out cockpit precipitation and thunder sounds

It looks very good and sounds like a great improvement for P3D2 users especially. I look forward to hearing more and seeing some videos and stills. Best of luck with the launch of REX 4 complete.

Thanks, MrJ O0

EDIT: is free only for me?? :wub:

Since December '08 we've been graciously 'giving' away updates and even new versions... these are all NEW products, all four of them with much invested in R&D. You can figure the rest out ;)



What an improvement compared to REX3! Do I need to buy the whole package, or is there any free or paid upgrade?

We will be offering discounts to current REX users.



Might I dare ask... are we days, weeks, or months away from this new release ?

Before Christmas for Texture Direct, and the others are TBA.


To all others, thank you for your kind words. We will be announcing more information shortly in regards to pricing as well as showing sample of the user interface. 


Please remember that REX4 Direct consists of 4 separate products: Texture Direct, Weather Direct, Weather Architect and a soon-to-be-announced partnership/endeavor ;)
