  1. I'd laugh so hard if they actually said that! Which of course they won't.
  2. I didn't see this in the manual anywhere, but can the skyforce3d models be used in p3d v4 when running without having the skyforce app open?
  3. So I notice that you have included the textures for predawn-postdusk. Are there any improvements or changes to the night sky?
  4. I don't think I've ever been more excited about getting back to flying in P3D, maybe even with VR if this really is immersive enough!
  5. That's still better than having no expected timeframe. I believe it will be here before the end of 2017.
  6. I knew that once they said that there was a meeting between the Environment Force and SkyForce staff that they were getting pretty close! Thanks for the early update! Looking forward to the (hopefully imminent) release! I strongly believe that we're looking at a mid-December 2017 release! I'm excited about that because then I get to start flying again but with immersive weather!
  7. Give it a week or two. One of the REX managing partners did say that he had some personal things going on, plus it is a holiday this week. Maybe there was no update because release is very close.
  8. That's probably because they are going to say the same thing as last Monday, and also because this week is a holiday. Maybe they've been encountering new issues and they feel that an update saying so would be disappointing.
  9. Why can't REX just get a patent for SkyForce3D? They could post photos/information and this protection would prevent anyone from directly copying their work/ideas without REXs' permission. Honestly this "waiting to show anything because we'll get copied" is getting ridiculous. REX; it's ok. Get a patent for this SkyForce idea. Take some of the pressure off. You've said since June of this year that information would be coming very soon; it's almost December and we have seen nothing new. It's not an effective marketing strategy to keep telling people "its coming," or "there's new bugs; hold on another month before we release new information (then you never do)." Also, a marketing strategy should be developed "BEFORE or in the EARLY STAGES" of the product beginning to develop. Marketing should NOT come after the product is finished. I seriously hope that this is worth the wait or it's probably going to piss off a lot of people.
  10. If SkyForce changes/modifies P3D's code in any way, then it would actually be a direct violation of Section 4 of the Prepar3d EULA. To part two of your question, yes it will require some "patching" or a hotfix by REX for each P3D version that releases, but that shouldn't surprise you. It's that way for almost all software that is P3D compatible.
  11. Well then; whose fault is it? This statement doesn't really make sense. If REX is the only entity that 'markets' the material to its consumer base (due to them keeping it as secret as Area-51), then REX is the only entity that can be at fault.
  12. I still say that we'll be seeing the first pictures of the new and upgraded for P3D 4.1 by December of this year; full release in January 2018.
  13. My best guess based on the past few months: When P3D version 4.2 releases, we'll most likely start seeing the first photos of the pre-release product. Seriously though, I'm very strongly getting the feeling as though SkyForce3D is progressing just like Star Citizen is. REX is just going to keep adding more and more features and they'll get so into it that they forget how simple the original product was supposed to be like. Instead of keeping to the original and building on it with progressive patches throughout the year, it'll probably be End of November/Beginning of December-ish of this year before we see anything. I have great interest in this product and I feel that it will get released eventually (hopefully before 2018 starts), but guys, it's radio silence here and ATC needs to know what NAV point you are holding at in IMC so that nobody damages anything. You've been in the air for a long time but eventually you need to land or you're going to run out of fuel. We don't want that to happen.
  14. REX Sky Force 3D

    I'm actually starting to believe that there isn't an actual product being developed here. There have been no updates on it for a very long time, and the screenshots which were supposed to be here by now are nowhere to be seen. There are just generic responses to progress. Since we have no evidence that such a product exists and is in beta/close to release, there is extreme reason for concern, especially given the time that has elapsed. Why is this thread in the preview screenshots section if there is nothing to be seen? You guys seriously can't even give us a few photos? I don't understand. Last year you teased photos and nothing has happened regarding the competition. Why can't you now? Like it was said above; nobody is going to just steal your idea and develop something in a month that's even close to what you're supposedly developing. You are aware of how extremely difficult it is to develop a product that someone else is doing solely from photos right? It's near impossible. I, too, believe that something very suspicious is going on. That's because last year in June you posted a teaser and prelim photos for this product! A year ago! And nobody has stolen the idea! What's so different about releasing photos before the product is even close to release vs releasing them when it's "near" release? Something just doesn't sound right here. Are you even making progress on development or just saying it? Without any proof of the product, we as customers feel lied to when you tell us that you'd be showing us everything that you've been working on. We'd be way more appreciative of the vague status updates if there was more transparency about what was going on. Nobody is going to steal your skyforce idea with a simple, "We have just entered beta testing. The features that we implemented are working very well, so we should be posting photos here very shortly. Our aim is within the next couple weeks." Something like that will automatically make everyone feel better about the project. I remember when the rstough person had a post from June stating that it wouldn't be much more of a wait before release and that they weren't talking months. That has since been deleted. You guys worry WAY too much about this supposed "competition." It's almost August and we have seen nothing. It was supposed to be "not much longer of a wait." But here we are almost a month later from supposedly entering beta testing and all there is to be seen are responses stating that beta testing is getting better and better. A reply from April 11th from rstough stated, "Once we move into beta testing we will begin to expose the details behind Sky Force." Is the project not yet in beta? Now with all of that being said, my comment will probably be deleted as well. If it is deleted, oh well. Just know that your customers are growing very impatient for data that you said would be shown. It's difficult for us to believe something exists based solely on "beta testing is getting better and better."
