  1. 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.

    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.

  7. 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.

    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.

    Here is some additional information about the product:

    REX SKY FORCE AND TEXTURE DIRECT W/SOFT CLOUDS:

    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.

    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.
