    I purchased REX Skyforce 3d, only to find it doesn't have runway or other airport textures. Can I run Skyforce 3D and REX texture direct, without messing up the clouds that come with REX Skyforce?

    I love the clouds, but I want to update all my airports to better runway textures and lighting , like what came with REX tecture direct.

    Any help is appreciated. 

    I would strongly recommend Worldwide Airports. http://rexworldwideairports.com/

    This will be receiving the P3Dv4 update very soon.

    HI all

    I'm really on the brink of buying SkyForce 3D. I however have 1 problem.

    I'm quite often on the go, and can then still not resist the urge to do some flying.

    Now that chaseplane can go offline, I can finally use it, however, AS16 still doesn't allow me to switch from pc to laptop and then few days later back to pc.

    How does machine licensing etc work for SF3D?




    Victor - Please accept my apologies for the very late reply.  Things have been very busy with work.  As of right now Sky Force requires an active internet connection for Registration, 3D Cloud Model Sync, and the Weather Engine functions.   Also, Sky Force is limited to one license per machine.

  3. In short - we are having to redo ALL textures so that they work with P3Dv4.  Right now there are issues with the lighting that is causing problems.  We cannot allow that to go out like that.  It took us a year to develop all of Worldwide Airports, so it will take some time.  Thank you for your patience in this as we try to get this updated.

    I use REX TD+SC with P3D v4, alongside with ASP4. I was warned by a couple of my fellow simmers over at my VA, to be careful using the Cloud textures as ASP4 tends to draw multiple layers of clouds in some cases and this can lead to a big drop in framerates. There are 2 types of compression algorithms offered by REX, but I do not know which is better. I have currently used the low res textures supplied by REX along with 32bit compression. Are the DXT 5 or 32bit better for perfromance ?


    Thank you for your great question. DXT5 is better optimized for use than the native 32bit.

    Hello all,

    I have Prepar3d V4. I wanted to know what REX products I should get for the absolute best sim experience?  What product(s), and why? I would like to know.

    First, please accept my apologies for the VERY late reply.

    The current products that work with Prepar3D v4+ are:

    REX Soft Clouds - Many a 3D cloud texture replacement tool that create a more volumetric feel

    REX 4 Texture Direct w/Soft Clouds Enhanced Edition - Includes soft clouds as well as 2gigs + of new material specific to enhancing the look of P3Dv4+


    We will be releasing REX Sky Force and REX Environment Force soon that will change the way the entire weather system works.  This will be the most robust advancement in environmental effects on P3D.

    I originally purchased REX Direct for Steam and  successfully upgraded to the Enhanced Edition. Problem is it always  loaded up fine with Steam no problem. Now when I start up REX Direct Enhanced Edition Steam and after loading  my textures and as usual REX Direct automatically would have loadd up FSX. Now it says it can not load FSX because because Steam is  required by REX Direct Enhanced Edition. 

    Did you get the Enhanced Edition through Steam or did you purchase the Enhanced Edition through another store?

  7. This product has come to its end of life.  It will be replaced by REX SIMAIR next year.  The problem is that this program was developed by an outside developer.  The programmer developed it as a hobby on the side.  His new job took his time away from continued support.  Due to contractual reasons, we were not given the original code. Therefore, we are slowly shutting down the service.

  8. Hi and welcome to the forum.

    I'm sorry you are experiencing issues, however, please provide us with your order number for REX Texture Direct or REX Texture Direct with Soft Clouds and where it was purchased. Place that within your signature so we may verify you. If you have any questions in why we ask this, please reference the following thread: 

    Once this has been completed and you are verified, a member of our team will assist you.

    Thank you in advance.

  9. Enhanced Edition does not mean automatic soft clouds for REX Texture Direct.

    Here are the upgrades:

    If you have REX 4 Texture Direct you can update for free to REX 4 Texture Direct - Enhanced Edition:

    If you have REX 4 Texture Direct w/Soft Clouds you can update for free to REX 4 Texture Direct w/Soft Clouds - Enhanced Edition

    If you have REX 4 Texture Direct and the stand alone version of REX Soft Clouds you can update to REX 4 Texture Direct w/Soft Clouds - Enhanced Edition
