    Page 16 of the EF manual: IMPORTANT NOTE: You must always run Environment Force first before starting the flight simulator. I will now change that text in the manual to my above text so it's extremely clear. We will include in the next update. Thanks.

    Hi everyone I bought REX Env Force and I am very, very happy ! Its like I have a new simulator now... what an incredible job they do. Hope everybody get this product working right. My installation was like that : Dowloading REX Env Force. Restore my original shaders from PTA. Uninstall PTA. Repair my P3D client (with install_Client.msi) Install REX Env Force Set it in AUTOMATIC MODE Launch it Launch ASP4 Launch P3D Turn OFF HDR in sim and bim... just perfect realism with no more fps cost !

    I have the mini UI now. First time since I bought the software so the update fixed it. I'm able to enjoy all the features now. Thanks a lot!

    TBH I don't see any issues opening up the activation details again....It probably took you more time to write this post than to open up your email and type 'REX'. 😂

    Hi, I have the same problem interestingly enough, the only thing different is that I am not using EF. I have SF and AS only running and have a fresh install of P3d V4.51, I noticed the same behaviour on changing from FMS or indeed any other view and then returning to the cockpit. An initial very bright outlook which returns over a matter of a few seconds to normal. Could this be a P3D issue instead of EF or indeed SF ? As I say I dont even have EF installed, the only common is I am using the PMDG 747.

    For me, the update corrected my problems with over bearing bloom and water movement. The Shading is simply awesome for me Those were my only issues. I noticed the difference as soon as the sim started... put a smile on my face. I use SkyForce set in auto and Environment Force is set to auto both installed as stated in the manual

    That is my question too. I prefer Automated Mode in EF and I have SF3D as well as Active Sky Weather. No other shader mods. I've set HDR on in P3D, and thus HDR is active in EF too. To my understanding HDR settings in P3D don't play any role as they are overruled in EF. Is this right? Some light effects appear too bright, that's why I have adjusted some settings in EF HDR (e.g."exposure key"). Unfortunately I have to do these adjustments each time when I load P3D. Why can't EF remember my settings? I don't want to tweak. I want to fly in "realistic" weather dependent environment. That's all what I want.

    During this flight out of LEMG, inbound Luton(EGGW), I have just experienced the BEST cloud cover, thunder, lightening(sheet and Fork), I've every seen in my SIM for the last 20+years...first class. I'm just using SF+EF. The above pictures do not do it justice to be honest...the SIm looks way better

    Yep, another BIG thumbs up to the devs and support staff. I also took a FSL A320 for a couple of flights and a combination of real weather injects and environment colours/lighting/shades left me absolutely speechless. Thanks REX team! Cheers, Matej

    Hello, Thank you for your answers. I solved the Problem by reinstalling both REX installations. I'm not sure what caused the problem, but an additional uninstall of REX Sky Force solved this. kind regards Michael

    Just remember that it probably took 2 months to get FSX set up right too. I see the same thing being reported from a friend who is moving to XPlane. I am actually glad that we have the ability to get things set just right for our particular sims, systems and tastes. There are not many programs out there that allow that to happen.

    So it means there are bloom issues on your side?

    Same problem as this thread. However i've found a work around, it appears if i make sure ET is set to auto and i load the default F22 first it works no problems.

    Ah! thanks for this info - how did you figure that out? Did I miss it in the manual? I'd never have found it otherwise, it can't be more than a couple of pixels wide and is practically invisible on my screen. Got it now though. I'd figured out about resizing the panel, and there is a little "F" button (at least I think that's what it says <grin>) in the top left corner that cycles between three different text sizes but I personally could do with another even large font option. Not that my eyesight is bad, but on a 4k monitor even the large size is a bit of a squint. Much appreciate the response, thank you!

    The issue is now resolved with an uninstall and reinstall of the WX Rdr. It is working correctly now.

    In EF I made sure they were the same; 1024. As far as the mini UI, it is performing as advertised, never had an issue with it. I usually keep it minimized and never touch it while simming.

    You will get that message if you run P3D without EF running. You can minimize it if you like.

    So I have been using EF since day one. On day one and with the 1.0 fix, I had to turn off HDR in EF and everything worked fine. Since 1.1 I don't have to turn anything off, just run in automode and let AS and EF do it's thing (EF of course doing it's thing plus the SkyForce thing). I have looked at every thread and one common problem I see is that many are tying to use a shader program to tweak their P3D then using another shader program (EF) to tweak the tweaks in their shaders. I see very little with regards to issues for folks that use P3D, AS, SF, and EF with no other shader system. It reminded me of guitar players because I am one of those crazy people too. We are always chasing tone whith guitars. We buy new pickups beause Jimmy Hendrix or somone else used them, then we put in new pots and use certain cables and cable lenghths, round wound strings and flat round ones, nickel and stainless. We put effects pedals in and constantly add/takeaway from them, then get up during a gig and go nuts because a battery ran out on the fuzz pedal and it's not true bypass so the wah is out of whack. We adjust treble, base and mids on our amps, then on twenty different pedals and after all that we run the whole shebang through an equalizer to jigger with tone some more. We spend more time fiddling with knobs than plucking strings. Aren't we doing the same thing with our sim? Simpler is almost always, in the end better. I love EF, running it on auto. I contemplated for about two months if I was going to get Tomatoe Shade or Envshade. Now I know that I will not. For me my sky view out of the cockpit is all that really matters. I don't care if my livery is PBR or not because the only time I know I am using it is when I install it. I don't care how he glint looks on my wing. I started simming with BAO when everything was black with green lines. If there are any other guitar players out there who are trying to get that perfect ZZ Top tone for Jesus Left Chicago, remember, they recorded their guitars with a mic'ed 15 Watt Champ...lol you can't get any simpler than that. Thanks REX for EF and making my simming simpler!

    Testing also the new update. I reset all in-sim UI variables to default and only had to adjust the bloom blur scalar. So far so good. Testing it in day though, will see how it looks like at night!

    Ditto @kjetihaa . Did a complete re-install of EnvironmentForce, applied Technical Update 1, and still no mini UI. I tried adding it as an add-on via an add-on.xml-file in the P3D AddOns directory. P3D asks if i want to enable Environment Force, but it does not load. My install is pretty much vanilla, P3D v4.5 HF 1. (did not work prior to HF 1 either), with only EZDok v3 and ActiveSky installed. Tried running with only Environment Force installed, but the MiniUi does not load. All I need from the MiniUI, is to tame the mental HDR bloom effect - it completely ruins the VC of the Leonardo Maddog X.. Hopefully REX wil have this sortet soon:)

    Ok I've gone back and run through all the sliders and they are working as they should. I must have been adjusting something previously that was not present due to the conditions or was only a subtle change.

    Saving fog mode parameter in a autostart config is a must.

    So bottom line is, we have to enable weather smoothing (or Fog Mode Off) with AS? I've put custom weather in AS with visibility 3 SM. The first pic is with disabled weather smoothing (Fog Mode is Manual), second pic is with enabled weather smoothing (Fog Mode Off). Second pic is clearly more realistic for visibility od 3 SM.

    A few of you are coming down on Nyxx but I have a very similar if not the same issue although I use PTA and not Tomato. I am stuck with no control over my HDR lighting within the sim and even within the MinUI. Your 2 minute solution was tried by me several times and it does not fix the problem in my case. I cannot return my sim to Pre-EF and it is likely due to a conflict with a setting in PTA I had. Deleting, restoring shaders, reinstall of P3D client has no effect. It can be a little frustrating when you lose control of your sim settings and cannot restore them so I know where Nyxx is coming from. I am not upset at REX, I'm a long-time supporter and love their products and they provide great support. I am sure I will love EF when things are straightened out. There are a handful of us with outside shader programs that obviously can cause quite a major glitch but we are in the minority as I see that many are using the program and it seems to work perfectly. Sorry for the rambling but it's not just Nyxx that had this issue and the fix is not that simple.

    In the automation mode, you have to disable the weather smoothing if you are using Active Sky. They have their own fog control features.

    The more you 'play' the better it gets, just found two 'key' tweaks to have a play with 'TimeDelta' and 'Adaptation Scalar', they become more 'into play' at night. Great work I'm liking this more and more!! My only concern, now is what is the correct way to make sure that after all this 'twerking' !! you can save the changes and they are reloaded in the next SIM session. I've tried loading some 'community' presets, but nothing seems to change in the SIM, (no numbers in the minu IU) or anything....unless I'm missing something

    As a matter of fact, there has been a survey already by Navigraph, check here. I returned from almost 10 year hiatus from FS. And I was an FS9 user, then moved to FSX:SE which seemed quite a move then almost a decade then. After returning to the hobby last December with a new PC build, I re-installed all my add-ons and even bought some new ones. Until I encountered the doomed OOM. Then I learned that P3D finally cured it and I would never have to put up with the frustrations resulting from FSX, I made the move, spent close to $1,500 on my add-ons to get it to the same level of FSX:SE as before. Never regretted any of it. Hardware is only getting better, software are getting more complex too that can take good advantage of the more powerful hardware today. The only logical choice is to abandon FSX and move on to the better platform. In my case, it was P3D.
