    Wonder how you guys decided to use the very same name as the creator and company owner 

    of X-ForcePC for your "future" X-Plane project? Which by the way is a close friend of the Austin Mayer whom invented X-Plane..

    Unfortunate or smart?

    X-Force is not the name of the products.  As you know we have several products that end in the name "Force"..  We are just carrying this over to our software that we are developing for X-Plane.  

    X - Force would represent products like:  Sky Force "X" , Worldwide Airports "X"...etc.


  5. We are happy to reveal a peek at what REX has been working on for the end of 2019 as well as 2020.

  6. PRODUCT:  REX SKY FORCE STATUS 
    BUILD:  TECHNICAL UPDATE 2.3
    STATUS: DEPLOYMENT PHASE - ON PAUSE
    DATE:    6/28/2019

    Developer Notes:

    During our testing prior to staging for deployment we noticed two issues.

    There seems to be an data issue for weather over Australia.  Data is received from the servers, but it is not injecting in that region and we noticed that data we get directly from NOAA for Australia is 24 hours old.

    We need to investigate this issue before we release this build.  Deployment Phase is currently on pause.

    Developer Note:

    We have completed all testing of Charlie Build.  We are extremely grateful for all those from our QA, Insider, and Connect teams who helped test and provided great feedback.

    We have now started the Deployment Phase where we prepare the latest build for release.  We were targeting Tuesday, but it looks more and more that it will be Thursday before we release the patch and full build.

    Stay tuned for further updates...

    NEXT UPDATE: Thursday, June 27, 2019

    Just a quick update...We have delayed the release of the patches and full updates.  We had a last minute change and we are determining if we must do a Delta Cycle test before release.  We will give an update tomorrow.

  12. PRODUCT: REX WEATHER FORCE
    BUILD: RELEASE
    STATUS: DEVELOPMENT PHASE
    DATE: 6/18/2019

    Developer Note:

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Weather Force is our next generation weather engine that will incorporate new features, smoothing, as well as some of the features of Environment Force.  This will support FSX, FSX Steam, and all versions of Prepar3D.  

    Hello Everyone -

    Intense development continues of this add-on. 

    Many have asked how is this weather engine going to be different than what is presently in Sky Force now.

    Several features from Environment Force will be included into Weather Force.  In addition, Weather Force will be available for users of FSX, Steam, and all versions of P3D.

    With this weather engine, we are approaching the process of generating weather much differently.  Our goal is to make the experience more immersive.

    We have felt that what is lacking is the sense of flying through full weather systems that cover 1000 of square miles.  Learning from what we were able to accomplish within Environment Force, we are hoping to bring life to the weather systems through Weather Force.

    We will be revealing more within a few weeks.

    Our target is to start actively testing by the end of the month with our QA team, then move to our Insider Team in the weeks following.

    It is our hope to release this build by Thursday of this week or Tuesday of next week.  Stay tuned for more updates.

    This update also applies to a problem in Australia? When it does not start realistic weather correctly. If so good.

    Thank you for posting your issue.  However, I ask that you post your issue within the Sky Force support forum.  As we use this to discuss upcoming features in the blog.

    As to your answer we are reviewing the issue.  However, this is a server data issue, not an application issue.

    Status Update:

    We have started working on a small update (Technical Update 2.3) for Sky Force that addresses the Network issue some have been reporting.    

    We hope to start testing this with our Insider and Connect team within a few days with plans for a quick release.

    We will keep you advised.

  16. REX WEATHER FORCE STATUS UPDATE
    STATUS: DEVELOPMENT PHASE
    BUILD:  RELEASE BUILD
    CYCLE:   NA
    DATE:    6/6/2019

    Status Update:

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Weather Force is our next generation weather engine that will incorporate new features, smoothing, as well as some of the features of Environment Force.  This will support FSX, FSX Steam, and all versions of Prepar3D.  

    Thank you all for your patience with our development cycles with other products.  However,  I am very happy to say that we are going to be nearing testing soon on this product.

    There are some very exciting new features with this new weather engine.  As stated this will be a free add-on to those that have purchased REX Sky Force.

    Once we reach the testing cycles we start to pull back the covers on the details of this next generation engine.  

    One of the goals of this weather engine is that it is a component of Sky Force that can be consistently updated without having to update Sky Force all the time.  It will work in tandem with Sky Force but will operate without Sky Force running.
