    So this is my status: P3D v.4.3 with SkyForce, TextureDirect w. SoftClouds, WorldWideAirports and WeatherRadar.

    I will wait for TU 2.1 and CreativeUpdate 1. Then I have WeatherForce. I will then upgrade P3D to v.4.5 and buy EnvironmentForce. This is how it is right now since EV does not work with P3D v.4.3. But I understand you are working on that to make EV work with v.4.3?

    If so I do not have to upgrade to v.4.5 and thus avoid all the problems with add-ons: Orbx scenery, Gsx, missing aircrafts etc.

    Regards Henrik (OY)

    We are hoping to have backward compatibility for Environment Force to cover all versions of P3D 4 once we iron out some issues.

    Weather Force will include the main weather functions of Environment Force.


  8. REX ENVIRONMENT FORCE STATUS UPDATE:  PRE-DEPLOYMENT
    BUILD:  RELEASE
    DATE:    4/29/2019

    STATUS:

    Just less than 24 hours before release!

    Here is some additional information about the product:

    REX SKY FORCE AND TEXTURE DIRECT W/SOFT CLOUDS:
    Environment Force is built to use the textures from these tools and the dynamic texture sync right now only supports theses texture packages.  However, we will be opening an SDK later for other 3rd parties to use.

    OTHER TEXTURE PROGRAMS:
    Though you cannot utilize the dynamic texture sync feature, Environment Force will use whatever textures are within the simulator.

    OTHER WEATHER ENGINES:
    This can be used with any weather engine on the market.  It is not limited to only REX products.

    OTHER SHADER PROGRAMS:
    You can use Environment Force with other 3rd party shader programs.  

    SUPPORTED PLATFORM:
    Prepar3D v4.4 and 4.5

    ***Support for earlier versions of P3D 4 will be brought online over time.***

    PRICING INFORMATION:
    We will be announcing pricing at release.  But it will be reasonable.

    DISCOUNT INFORMATION:
    If you have purchased REX Sky Force you will receive 10% off of Environment Force.  You must purchase Environment Force at the store you purchased Sky Force.  

    If you have not purchased REX Sky Force and you purchase Environment Force at full price you will be able to get REX Sky Force at 50% off at the REX Store Only at this time.

    So what is the plan for FSX? I was really looking forward to smooth weather injection with Environment Force -

    Smooth weather injection will be coming via Weather Force to FSX.  We can't perform the features of Environment Force on the FSX platform.

    Hi, @rstough just two question:

    Is EF compatible with prepard3d v4.3? Because the manual shows v4.4 and v4.5.

    When EF is released, Should i set the same time in weather automation control in EF and weather injection in SF.

    Example:

    Weather automation control: 5 min  

    Weather injection: 5 min

    Which is the recommendation?

    Regards.

     

    At this time it is only compatible with P3D 4.4 and 4.5.  We will be issuing updates to support early versions of 4.  We just need to get through this initial release.

    What you suggested above is what I have been using and it works really well at having the injection and automation at 5 minutes.

    A couple of years ago I listened to a broadcast interview on Sky Radio with REX developers (I believe this was shortly before Worldwide Airports HD was released).  During the interview it was mentioned that REX was working on a virtual airline operations concept that would incorporate many aspects of an airline operation.

    Curious as to what became of that idea.

    That idea was associated with REX SIMAIR.  That product has been put on hold temporarily while we finish up a few major products over the next month.  However, we will startup working on it again very soon.
