WX Advantage Radar Announced!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FROM REX GAME STUDIOS AND MILVIZ

PHOENIX, AZ – REX Game Studios (www.rexgamestudios.com) is pleased to announce a joint development partnership with Milviz (www.milviz.com) to develop the WX Advantage Radar modeled after the Honeywell RDR-4B weather radar for Microsoft Flight Simulator X and eventually Lockheed Martin’s Prepar3D version 2.

“There's nothing else on the market like the WX Advantage radar gauge”, states Reed Stough (REX Game Studios). He adds “Through our partnership we have for first time modelled accurate placement of precipitation along the azimuth of the radar beam within its cone as you fly. You'll experience a realism never before seen in a radar gauge. As you fly in and out of precipitation it will match to what's on the screen - accurately.” The WX Advantage Radar can be used with any 3rd-party weather add-on as well as the default weather engine within FSX or Prepar3D.

The WX Advantage Radar will be freely offered as a customizable gauge to 3rd-party aircraft developers. The add-on developer can, for the first time ever, modify not only the color, texture and text, but also the model of the gauge to fit within their paradigm and methodology.

The WX Advantage Radar will come in two versions: a 3D version of the gauge which can be easily placed within any virtual cockpit, and a 2D model will also be available as a popup gauge. End-users may also make modifications to the gauge to fit their own preference.

Unlike other gauges, the WX Advantage Radar is multi-threaded and runs in its own process outside of the simulator; therefore, there is next to no performance hit or frame rate loss.

Testing of the weather gauge starts this next week and expect a release shortly after testing is completed.

Get ready to experience the weather like never before!

REX GAME STUDIOS is pleased to announce the REX4 Direct line of products!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FROM REX GAME STUDIOS

Sunday, December 8, 2013

PHOENIX, AZ – REX GAME STUDIOS is pleased to announce the REX4 Direct line of products. Five years ago REX Game Studios raised the bar in flight environment simulation software with Real Environment Xtreme. Today we are raising the bar again with the announcement of REX4 Direct.

REX4 Direct includes four lines of products: Texture Direct, Weather Direct, Weather Architect, and a fourth product and partnership soon to be announced. All products when released will be compatible with Microsoft’s Flight Simulator X, Lockheed Martins’ Prepar3D 1.4 and 2.0.

REX Texture Direct – 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! Includes 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. There's also a facility that will auto-start simulator after texture injection.

REX Weather Direct – Our goal with REX Weather Direct was to make it so easy for the user, that they only had to start the program and click start to achieve an accurate weather experience within FSX or Prepar3D. REX Weather Direct has been built from the ground up, utilizing better coding method’s to ensure accuracy and stability. In addition, the memory footprint has been optimized so that it can take advantage of Direct X API’s and offload some of the work to the graphics card. This allows more memory to be allocated to the flight simulator.

REX Weather Architect – Weather Architect uses the same backend technology as Weather Direct to aid the user to get flying without being overwhelmed by numerous and complicated settings. The interface is easy and intuitive. What makes Weather Architect different is it allows the user to literally paint the weather on a map with accuracy down to a single latitude and longitude! Thus, the user can be creative about the weather they encounter, from flying bush to trans-oceanic flights.

The final product (yet to be announced) is breakthrough technology in weather parameter analysis and will be announced soon.

REX Essential PLUS with OverDrive and PREPAR3D v2 Compatibility

REX Games Studios confirms that REX Essential Plus / Overdrive works well with Prepar3D version 2; however, because of some changes to weather features such as 3D fog, they recommend that a user disables this option within Prepar3D or turn off “Enable realistic Visibility” within REX.

All other features and textures operate correctly with Prepar3D v 2.

REX Game Studios will be issuing a public beta of Service Pack 3 which will include fixes to handle the volumetric 3D fog, as well as added support for PMDG 777 wind import features.

Currently REX Essential is a product of 5 tools: a Weather Engine, a Texture Engine, the Flight Centre, REX Edge, and a Download Manager. REX Essential Plus Overdrive is the main product of REX Games Studios that can be described as developer team with highly skilled professionals with great attention for detail, a sense of functionality and a large fan base."

"A developer whose name is directly associated with some of the very best weather and terrain textures to grace our monitors...what do we know about them?

REX Essential PLUS awarded ANOTHER coveted AVSIM Gold Star Award, Plus a SPECIAL Review!

"REX Game Studios (once known as Real Environment Simulations) thundered into the marketplace in 2008 with their first product, the critically acclaimed Real Environment Xtreme…or REX. That software earned the prestigious Avsim Gold Star Award among others and was the talk of the various flight simulator forums. If you are new to flight simulation or perhaps have been in Afghanistan the past few years you may not be aware of this company or what this software does in FSX (or P3D and FS9)."

REX Game Studios® announces the release of REX Latitude!

PHOENIX, AZ - REX Game Studios® today announced the release of REX Latitude for Microsoft FSX and Lockheed Martin's PREPAR3D.

From award-winning REX Game Studios®, makers of the Real Environment Xtreme product line, comes a new concept in flight simming.

Join in on the fun, and step into a world where actions matter and consequences exist. Plan well, prepare well, fly well, and you'll be rewarded. Falter or fail, and results will speak for themselves. Feel the the excitement of coming in for a landing as scores, reputation and earnings hang in the balance. Make flight simulation real. Make it fun again!

Whether it's low and slow or fast and high, pristine, calm days or thunderous gusty nights, you can customize your experience to your exact liking and find others that share your passion. You don't have to change anything about how you fly, but you'll want to.

A massive multiplayer environment exclusively for pilots (sim or otherwise). A world based around flying competency, with careers, reputation and economy with a built-in risk-reward system: cheaper aircraft are less risky and more forgiving than large planes. Compete with others on skill, comfort, experience or earnings, or just join the camaraderie and banter. How you fly matters, however, fly wherever, whatever, whenever! Inclusive of all types of "simmers": GA, business/corporate, commuter/regional, airline, low and slow or high and fast.

Latitude offers unbiased feedback for every flight, specifically tailored to experience level and aircraft model. Evaluation of both piloting skill and passenger/cargo comfort for a full comprehensive analysis. Automatic detection and detailed scoring of all flight phases, without any need for configuration. Perception based judging and scoring to mimic how a person would rate your flight, complete charting of entire flight; individually zoom-able and adjustable.

Directly integrated within REX Latitude is the online Portal, connecting you to a multiplayer environment which creates a whole new simming world. It's a great place to meet like minded virtual pilots, measure your skills against them, build a career, earn a reputation and make money. The Portal is a great way to track your progress as you become a better pilot with a permanent record of when, where and how you flew. It is encouraged that you participate – not only for the fun but also for the real-world experience you're sure to gain.

REX Essential+

We're pleased to announce the finalization of REX Essential Plus. This new enhanced version of REX Essential includes all of the fixes for Service Pack 1 and several NEW enhancements and features!

Thank you all for your continued patience and support!
FIX LIST:

FIXED application performance and periodic freezing.

FIXED slow and extended weather data download issue.

FIXED slow and extended interpolation processes.

FIXED database repair and compacting issue.

FIXED QNH not reporting properly.

FIXED the reload weather function to confirm access of the most recent weather.

FIXED double weather injection process.

FIXED weather overwrite function to only load most current weather.

FIXED drag on FPS during weather injection process.

FIXED TAT with use of some 3rd party aircraft (Please note that during our extensive testing we found that each 3rd party aircraft developer uses their own method of calculating TAT)

FIXED import process of FS Build and FS Commander flight plans into the REX Flight Center.

FIXED processing time of FlightAware data.

FIXED FlightAware waypoint issue when saving international flight plans.

ENHANCED the restore function.

SIMPLIFIED licensing process for access to P3d.

NEW FEATURE LIST:

ADDED new process to download archived weather from the REX EDGE data servers. (With the release of Service Pack 1, the access to the archive data dates back to January 1st, 2012. However, we will be incorporating more data from previous years as time goes on. This is a time consuming process and do not wish to hold up the service pack any longer in regards.)

ADDED new synoptic and micro weather station processes which allows for trans-oceanic flights utilizing real weather. This technique populates areas with few weather stations for a more robust weather experience allowing you to experience the effect of real frontal systems. Synoptic weather stations handle large areas of weather, which in turn produces the effect of large weather systems. Micro Weather Stations help with transitioning from local weather conditions, helping with fog, wind and precipitation transitions.

ADDED Weather Engine Plus, a new second weather engine mode utilizing the WEATHER THEME process to inject weather into FSX/P3D. This process is extremely fast, eliminates flashing and does not affect frame rates. We have also included the Synoptic and Micro weather station features adding more depth to this new weather mode. Weather Engine Plus injects real weather including real winds and temperatures aloft, archive, and random weather. To sum it up, there are two modes in which to inject weather into FSX/P3D: the station-by-station mode or the Weather Engine Plus mode. Our weather theme technology originally derived from previous work around weather themes within WM Weather Generator which allowed us to release custom weather themes to the market.

ADDED a new Download Center, which allow REX Game Studios to provide new FSX/P3D content to our user base in a timely manner.

ADDED the New Database Maintenance Tool which gives the user the option to optimize the database.

UPDATED the Flight Center to include temperatures aloft as well as winds aloft on the interface and within the NAV LOG.

UPDATED the Flight Center with updated current SIDS/STARS/Intersections/Waypoints for better representation of flight plans.

VFR Reviews

Kevin Glover from VFR Reviews just completed a review of REX2 for FSX.

"Rex, in Latin, means king. I will happily call myself one of the subjects in REX's benevolent reign and if I were to meet you, my reader, I would look you in the eyes and tell you this is indubitably the best $40.00 you can spend on your hobby. I can think of no more fit comparison to describe this product. It is vast in its complexity and sublime in its versatility. The simulator will never be the same again."

REX for FS9 service pack

There were a few items, that during the decompression stages, corrupted some textures, which slipped by us immediately before release. The weather engine depiction and a multitude of other key items reported by our users are also fixed. The FS2004 service pack is currently in testing and will be released shortly. We're sorry for the inconvenience this has caused everyone, but we feel confident that you will be enjoying REX to the fullest extent soon.

Partnership announced

Tim Fuchs (REX) and Reed Stough (WMX) are finally pleased to announce their partnership of Real Environment Xtreme and the integration of Weather Maker X technologies into the Real Environment Xtreme engine. The weather engine, though completely brand new, has been built off years of development and experience in a tested and proven production environment. In this proprietary engine, we have taken the best qualities of our past and present work and enhanced them for the new Real Environment Xtreme Weather Platform.

"A weather engine is not just some background process unseen, but should be an experience. That has been our number ONE goal - Experience" states Reed Stough. Tim Fuchs adds "That is the primary goal of the Real Environment Weather Platform - to create the most real to life experience possible!" Mr. Fuchs also adds, "We've been working hand-in-hand on this partnership for some time now, and we believe the time has come to announce the merging of our technologies."

Reed comes to a team consisting of high-profile designers, consultants and pilots, including Bill Collins from Foundation 9. Many new technologies are being created for REX's debut release, just beyond the horizon.

A New Team... the Dawn of a New Era!
