Thanks guys! 

You know, I actually purchased X-Plane 9 many, many months ago, and put it aside because it all seemed so foreign to me.  Someone else here sent some information that helped me over some of my concerns and made me want to push a little farther.  What it all comes down to, though, is that both FSX and X-Plane have their limitations.  You just need to let go of some of that, and work with the rest.

As for these shots, I posted them because they are my first flight with REXPlane.  I just randomized the sky themes and went flying.  Wouldn't you know, it was one of the most cloudless days in the US!  Got some high clouds up there, though, and they look REAL, not like the out of the box clouds that come with XP.  Not sure about the dusk colors, though.  And yet, the Inland Empire is part of the L.A. Basin, so with the "unique" air quality out there, it wouldn't surprise me if sunsets looked like this.

BTW, I asked Tim if he was going to start a new screenshot forum for REXPlane, but he said to just go ahead and use this one.

If you're wondering what threw the switch for me, here it is in a nutshell:

The last shot doesn't look like REX at all :(

But the first set is definitely ;)

Tim - yes, you're right.  The shot on approach to MI over the lake is NOT REXPlane, so don't anyone go thinking that's what you get with REXPlane.  I only posted that as an indication as to why I decided to really start getting serious about X-Plane.  And since then, I've purchased a Cirrus SR2x set of light GA planes, and REXPlane.  NOW flying X-Plane is sweet!

I did some further tuning and tweaking today, and I think I've gotten things even better.  It takes time, but that's not unlike the process we go through with FSX.  It's a big rabbit hole, but in many ways it's less mysterious.

My problem has been a lack of weather to take screenshots of around home, lol.  What a BEAUTIFUL week we've had here, and the 4th of July weekend has been awesome so far, too!  Guess I need to go on the hunt for some wx to fly in so I can show off REXPlane better...  ;D
