    Dear REX Customers and Flight Simmers - With the release of Laminar's Xplane 11, AeroFly 2, Dovetail's Flight Sim World, and the upcoming expected release of Lockheed Martin's P3Dv4 we felt it necessary to address our thoughts on each upcoming platform. These are exciting and somewhat scary times. Exciting in that we can remember some very dry times when only one platform was available. It is great to see such a resurgence in this genre. Scary in that many of us have invested not just $100's, but some of us $1000's of dollars into add-ons and hardware. So the question is "will what I have invested in, work in the future?" We are committed to providing support of these platforms as much as possible. Though our development team, as of right now, has been focused on finishing several new products, it is our goal to advance our technology further to try to give the best experience possible for the past as well as the new platforms. We have been in contact with each developer group and it is our goal to maintain a reasonable working relationship that goes well into the future. Each platform will offer its own unique challenges and we aim to try to meet those challenges by providing a greater sense of reality in the environment that surrounds us within the sim. Your investment is our investment. We will continue to strive to meet the need as they develop. Sincerely, The REX Management Team

    We have built the application open-ended meaning you can use any weather generator with it. More info on all features to come as we are prepping the website and user manual.

    If you can be patient a little while longer all will be revealed soon. We are putting together the marketing material now. The products we had on sale now are products that have been on the market for 3 years or more. We will continue to support them for as long as we can for the different platforms that are out there. REX Sky Force 3D is an evolution of new technology geared for the new sims as well as support for the past.

    REX Texture Direct and Soft Clouds will be continued supported for P3D v4. You are not obligated to purchase REX Sky Force. The "Force" products are ALL new technology that moves flight weather and environment in a new direction. Texture Direct and Soft Clouds are about 3 years old now.

    That's all fine and dandy, but all we're really asking for is a little transparency here. They have not given us any valuable information about where their product line is headed. They have all existing products on sale, but nobody knows if those products will be needed after the new releases. They gave us a video and a detailed explanation of what kind of stuff they have done with SF3D over a YEAR ago! Since then their competitors have apparently stolen their ideas and have released new products from scratch while REX is still busy deciding how many products they want to sell to us. At least that is what it seems like with the complete lack of transparency and the vague comments we get from them. We got a preview screenshots and videos forum made over a week ago, but it still has a year old video which we all know by heart already. They go into "final" beta testing every week. It's unprofessional from a company that's charging it's users for their products. It's the sort of thing you expect from a dodgy ebay seller, not a top of the line flight sim addon company. Sorry if this comes across as harsh, tough love people! REX market themselves professionally enough for us to expect more professionalism when it comes to communication with their clients. Peace out!

    Not much longer to wait. We are finishing up some internal fixes and then we will be sending to the beta team for final testing likely next week.

    I have REX TD HD and would like to know how much longer before the hot fixes are released? I'm not at all interested in any of the new stuff as I like my weather engine I have now. All I want is the TD HD thank you. Will this hotfix be released before the end of the year? If not then I go somewhere else for my textures. It seems to me REX is trying to push these new products on people who may not want them. TD HD is a good fit for me.

    I agree with kberg. With WW aiports taking over those textures and the other ones hopefully the rest of the textures. These and ORBX together is going to be the great.

    Hello there.. I had uninstalled everything so that it would be clean for P3D v4, and now when I try to install I get an error message stating that it cannot find/access the .msi file that is located in the same directory.. Would that be because I only have v4 installed and no others?, or should I submit something more detailed to support? (sorry for the hijack) Thanks!

    All I did was in the config section point it to the v4 install place like any other Sim and ran the texture install. For the weather you chose, in the P3D start up screen, REX weather in the weather options and set it all up like any other Sim. Like I said it "seems" to be working. I am still experimenting with airports and places to see if it did indeed install correctly and the scenery, texture sliders to get the best frame rates. Like I said before I know I am doing this at my own risk and if something happens REX is not at fault. Once the update come out I will feel much better about using it. I'll also wait for the fixes for the rest of the things I have.

    No it was not planned to have its own weather engine. This is not the Environment Force or Weather Force engine. That is still in development. But the new weather engine for Sky Force will be specifically optimized to take advantage of ALL the key aspects of Sky Force and its features.

    I understand the community is excited about the release of Sky Force and that is greatly appreciated. No one is as excited as our team is to bring it to market. However please refrain from spreading other product news here. It's not the place.

    Thank you everyone for your questions about each product. I would like to give more information about each product and what it does, but until we get officially into pre-deployment of the product I can't share anymore specifics about the products. In the past we were very open about the details of our products and because of that it allowed our competition to take our ideas and run with them. So for now we have to keep pretty tight chested in that these items have been in development for over several years and involve huge investments in time and money. We will be releasing information about REX Sky Force 3D in the very near term. These products will likely be the crown jewels of REX as a company as a whole. Again I am very sorry to be so vague at the moment.

    First, thank you for your support of REX. Unfortunately, it is a tough call right now to say which is the best direction to go as far as flight simulator platforms go. I would not necessarily count out FSW right now. I think there is a lot of uproar right now, but some of it is just dribble. So for now I would keep an eye on it. Dovetail IS committed to the hobby it is just they are taking small bites at a time. Obviously, P3D v4 is good, but honestly after testing it I am not seeing a huge jump from P3D 3.4 to 4 except more in the area of performance and some additional enhancements. XP11 is a step in the right direction and they are always striving to improve. So either platform you can't go wrong on. As far as REX goes we see value in all of them. But we still are cutting our teeth on the SDK's. And as of now DTG has not released an SDK yet.
