    ANSWERED REX Essential+overdrive

    Having purchased the product second hand is a violation of the EULA. We are not able to guarantee support for the product.

    REX WORLDWIDE AIRPORTS - NEWS UPDATES

    First, we hear our customers each time they express their frustration over delays and releases dates not being met. Let me remind everyone we are a small firm. We do not have 20+ developers working for us so we have to prioritize our work. Let me address Worldwide Airports: 1.) The original version for FSX, FSX Steam, and P3D 1 to 3 took 2 YEARS to develop. The product as it stands works for those sims. 2.) When P3D v4 was released we had to redo ALL the textures, which is the core of the product. So what you are talking about is redoing what 2 years to develop all over again. What that entails is fixing the texture, putting it into the sim and seeing if that fixed it. If not we have repeat that process until the texture is complete and ready. There are 15 GIGS of textures. That just doesn't happen overnight. Just as a reminder WE ARE NOT OBLIGATED to make a product work for the next simulator. There is no written law that states we have to support the next version of a simulator. This has been assumed and it is not right to place this demand on developers. In reality, we should charge a fee for the update and the man hours, but we are giving this as a FREE update to all customers. Where things stands now, we are about to finish the third cycle of beta testing. This included not just our beta team, but also our Insider Program. Provided there are no major issues our next step will be to prepare the product for deployment. Let me now address the delay in other products: The consistent updates to Prepar3D has put a lot of extra work on our team that was never there 5 years ago. Also, we originally only had 1 product to update in the past. Now we have: REX 4 Texture Direct REX 4 Soft Clouds REX 4 Weather Architect WX Advantage Radar REX Worldwide Airports REX Sky Force This doesn't include the new products we currently are developing. So having these many products to keep up to date with a small team can be quite a challenge. So some are asking why has it taken so long for SIMAIR and some other things to get done. It is because every time there is a change in a sim, each one of these products has to be re-tested. Then if something needs to be fixed we have to drop what we are working on and fix it. I am not writing this to sound like we are victims here, but to merely communicate our perspective. Our goal is to satisfy our customers, but understand we have limited resources and things cannot happen overnight.
