  1. So i was looking at a REX Force 3D pdf a few weeks ago, it had tons of info and screenshots. I'm trying to find it again, I want to have a look at the Screenshots and dream a little better tonight...anyone know where it is?? Cheers!
  2. There are so many different combinations for REX textures. I also have REX soft clouds separate. Is there a good resource on how to build the best texture set? In combination with soft clouds? I understand community themes are available but are there any guidelines. There are so many different textures within each category. I am currently using Prepar3D V3.35.

  3. I am moving over from FSX to P3D. I went to my downloads section on SimMarket to re download REX4 TD and all they had was the hotfix. Dont you need to download the program before you can do a hotfix?? I have contacted SimMarket and this is what they told me " Dear Customer,The product is the hotfix, there is no other download file.regards----------------------Best Regards,The simMarket Team So I went ahead and downloaded it and when i went to install it it just keeps opening and closing. Any help would be great thank you!
  4. Hey guys, Just upgraded to the new update for Prepar3D version 3.3. everything seem to work however the clouds in cloud in REX when generating come up black like smoke. Then eventually go back to normal. is there an update or service pack coming soon? Thanks.
  5. Hi Just had a response from Kaspersky - which has a good detection engine scan the bits and bytes of downloadmanager - and it finds the complex of bits that matches a virus or malware. Even rescanning the downloadmanager exe in REX 4. As it stands below, other well-known engines with a good detection rate does the same (except i.e. Microsoft AV). I have added such a list below. You better fix the downloadmanager program so it does not contain this stuff. Regards, Hubba4Bubba Details of current problem with embedded malware or virus in REX downloadmangaer in May 2016: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/7f70a393d917dc0eeb4e1ddce43f9f260f04b32a747669f7060ba6730aba2db6/analysis/ Doing a little research - the virus and malware detections in May 2016 of REX downloadmanager is actually registered here as well ... ... so may be you should fix this current issue now? As you can see all the good ones concerning detection rate ... they detect a problem: McAffe, Trendmicro, F-secure, Kaspersky, Symantec - while MS Security Essentials detects nothing So this can not be blamed on a single misdetection in one particular AV product. Solution: Please remove the bits or the malware embedded. Temp solution for me (and test - whether still to discard or not ... use on your own responsibility ...): Personally I will use a temp virtual machine to download the software to a UNC redirected file system. Then delete the download manager. Then delete the virtual machine. The go back to my normal machine and see if the malware is still embedded in the downloaded files.
  6. It's been a lot since I had to reinstall everything. Now the time has come and I found myself in need of some information before making a mess. 1. If I download now once again the products (texture direct, soft clouds) from Flight Sim Store, do I have to install all the service packs released since the first time I purchased the product? Or will the version be the last one, service packs included? 2. If I have to install all the service packs, considering that I have Texture Direct AND Soft clouds, what is the installation order of both the products? Do I have to install Texture Direct to the last SP, then Soft Clouds to the last SP, then the integration package to the last SP??? Thanks to all
  7. Hello, I'd like buy.... REX PLUS Essential avec OverDrive It's better than REX 4 - Texture Direct.... ? REX 4 - Texture Direct is in REX PLUS Essential avec OverDrive ? How much per month for Overdrive ? I don't find section in Website... Can you help me ? Thanks per advance
  8. Hi folks, I want to install REX 4, Texture Direct, and Soft Clouds on 2 separate PCs in my home and I think I have enough various licenses to cover it but want to make sure. I have P3D V3 on one PC (my big bird / sim) and nothing is installed yet on the second PC but own FS2004, FSX, FSXse, P3D v2, v3, and XPlane. My main PC is inside a sim cockpit, the other is is an older computer slated for a basic single monitor desk sim that I'm going to outfit for virtual cockpits and fighter jets. My dilemma is that I feel that I practically own stock in REX already lol having bought most everything over the past 6 years or so for FS2004, X-Plane, FSX, FSX Steam, and Prepar3D all of which I've listed below. I just want to use P3D v3 on both simulators but had also recently bought REX on discount as part of a FSX steam package. I have not installed FSX steam yet though, which I was planning for my desktop but am now just considering purchase of another P3D license or use my older V2.4 license as I really don't think I want to deal with FSX in any manner anymore. I was never very happy with it, especially for multi-monitor use and even though I had bought FSXse on a deep discount while heavily sedated I just don't forsee using it ans wish I'd never spent the money. I've had a bad habit of throwing money at problems like this as I'm sure many have with things changing from FSX to FSXse to P3D and I'm just not into it anymore as I've already done enough to regularly give back to the sim community and many developers. I probably own at least two to four aircraft from every major dev as well have shelled out a lot to REX in particular. So I guess what I'm saying is, if I bought one previous copy of Rex4-Texture Direct and Soft Clouds can I also use that on both sims with P3D v3.3, Or... do I have to go give blood and order it all over again for my second P3D install? Or... can I just use my FSXse license for my desktop P3D install as I read somewhere that it can see and be used simultaneously by FSX, FSXse, and P3D. I own the following titles below of which all were purchased from TheFlightSimStore, and then I also bought the FSXse REX 4 bundle which was purchased on sale over last Christmas through Steam but have yet to install most of these. So,.. please tell me I don't have to shell out any more money for all this. REX for FS2004 REX 4 Soft Clouds for FS2004 REX for XPlane ..have never installed. REX 2.0 for FSX ... have never installed. REX Essential Plus for FSX ... have never installed. REX 4 Texture Direct (originally purchased for P3D v2.4 ..and never installed) REX 4 Soft Clouds (originally purchased for P3D v2.4..and never installed) and the newest "cru-de-gras" ... REX Weather Architect..also yet to install. Hopefully you see a theme here lol. While I love REX, despite not having used it for the past 5 years, the product line over time has become somewhat confusing to me as to what exactly does what and what is best to get for a core package and I've seen other people convey the same as well. I had a customer buy some stuff this week on my recommendation and he also wound up buying the REX Essentials + Overdrive pack, but as I now understand it, that is outdated and non-essential if you use now Rex4-TD/SC and are only going to use P3D? Is that correct? Needless to say he is miffed about it as it kind of voided out the whole purpose of the discounts and I simply didn't research it much myself prior to his purchase to help guide him better. In light of that I still bought the Weather Architect but after review of my own FlightSimStore account today I saw that it would not be prudent to get anything else considering all my past REX purchases to date and my continued confusion of what exactly I am buying with each purchase, for what sim, for what cross-compatibility, cross-licensing allowances, etc, etc. And a search of the forum prior to this post yielded nothing substantial on this topic of multiple installs or cross licensing on 2 computers (which I think is really worthy and should be allowable..maybe for even two PC's and a laptop). Again.. at this point I think I just really want to install Rex4 Texture Direct and Soft Clouds on two main PC's, both of which are in my own in my home. (that is unless the other products have things I should really take advantage of) So,.. can you please direct me as to what I need to do. I have all the versions listed but they are all separate installers of course (and likely all old) so do I also need newer installers (as I'd greatly prefer a single click that installs all three (R4-TD-and-SC). And lastly, is the REX 4 Texture Direct just textures or is it also a weather engine that can provide real world weather conditions if selected? Using real world conditions is what I was always most familiar with and is greatly preferred as I'm pretty old school in that respect having invested most of my sim days into FS2004. I never really got into tailoring my own weather but I did think the Weather Architect product looked really cool so I bought it this week on sale. I hope I'm not coming off too dumb or cross here but it seems that REX has changed the basic product name with each new product revision and I think this confuses a lot of people, myself included. I mean REX 4 Texture Direct just sounds like some sort of add-on for REX 4, not something that actually includes "REX 4" because it doesn't say for example REX 4 "WITH" Texture Direct. And it took me at least 20 minutes to figure out that Weather Architect is not really a comprehensive weather engine per say, but is really just a custom weather designer tool and so I'm also confused as to how or why its any different from REX 4. It just kind of seems like these are creative ways of trying to sell the same thing but in different wrappers. Just my objective opinion. And I'm sorry for being picky but I really wish the product line was laid out a little better in layman's terms with maybe a nice visual graph for example that illustrates all the core differences and similarities. I know many people probably feel the same way and something like that could really help. Just my 2 cents for the 2 cents it's worth. I still really love this stuff though as I think what REX has done over the years is amazing which is why I've routinely supported it, even if I don't use all of it. Thanks for the help!
  9. What is cloud shear in the environment and how does the cloud shear parameter in WA influence this? Greetings, Bermuda

  11. Having searched throughout the site now for mention of the "upcoming" Weather Direct/Weather Force, this seems to have completely disappeared from the forum, and upcoming product news. Does this mean the product has been cancelled? Brit
  12. Hi are the service packs still available for download ?? I am reinstalling after a while away. I am on version 3.5.2012.1029 but cannot update. Maybe its just too old now ?? Rgds
  13. your forum support is driving me crazy, i ve posted a topic and did not got any answer
  14. I am interested in purchasing one of the REX products but as a first time buyer I am not sure which one to try first? I have narrowed it down to REX 4 Texture Direct w/Soft Clouds or REX Essentials Plus w/Overdrive. I am leaning to the latter, but would I be missing out on some textures or options from REX 4? I like the weather engine and Flight Planning in REP w/OD, but is that a deal breaker? I am not an "avid" simmer, but I do appreciate a higher level or realism when I fly. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  15. Hi, I purchased REX soft clouds to compliment my REX ess+odrive and in my queries prior to buying it I understood that soft clouds will choose on its own the best texture set based on the real weather at the location of FSX. Now I start REX ess+odrive, import the fplan and import the fplan. I am then opening soft clouds but I do not see any where to click so that REX chooses the best soft clouds for the weather...what am I missing...I see all sets of clouds and I can choose which one to install but this is not what I thought the program will do. Can someone please advise...what i want is that REX chooses on its own the best textures from soft clouds to inject in fsx like ess+odrive does. Thanks. Emann
  16. Hello together Times, I wanted to know whether there are contrails of REX2 and if not, whether are planned? There were which indeed times of REX2 the goods not bad. Would be cool if there is an update times with contrails. Wish all a nice week! Greetings Sebastian
  17. Hello, I really like the Texture Direct I purchased thru steam, I would like to purchase Soft Clouds as well , Before I do , I want to be sure it will be compatible. Will it integrate with my REX Texture Direct or is it a stand alone program. Also is there is a walkthru of the steps should it be compatible can someone be so kind to forward the link. Thanks Much Randy
  18. I currently fly in FSX using Active Sky Next and Flight Environment X (FEX) but in the next couple of weeks I'll be making the switch to P3D V3. I understand that FEX doesn't currently work in P3D although I'm told there are a couple of work-arounds. However, I've seen some videos on YouTube where REX produces wonderful cloud and lighting effects. As a result I think I want to purchase a REX product. The problem is that there are so many different versions of what appears to be the same product. My question is - Which product do I need to give me good clouds such as I had with FEX? I don't mind having to purchase a couple of add-ons but I don't want to then have to do a lot of tweaking to get them to work together. I might have the time because I'm retired but I don't want to spend my days just playing with settings. Thanks in anticipation for your help.
  19. What would you suggest to be the best AI Traffic for FSX? Most important features: ease of download and install, accuracy of airlines, variety of airlines, gate assignments, and destinations, and smooth operation without impacting performance. I currently have ICE/Sky AI traffic but they seem to have fallen off the face of the earth. I have to say their AI is excellent, with all the above listed important features covered while bringing such reality to FSX.
  20. I have both Texture Direct with soft clouds and Weather Architect. My question is about the settings on the free flight page in FSX Steam. PDF says never choose weather themes or user defined weather in FSX Steam when using Weather Architect. #1. What does #3 Current Weather need to be set to to use only Texture Direct? #2. What does #3 Current Weather need to be set to to use Weather Architect and Texture Direct together? I have read the PDF,s for both a few times now and I think I pretty much understand how to do everything but I am at a loss for understanding what Current weather has to be set to on free flight page? Thanks in advance
  21. So I am a little confused about what to do. I have both REX Ess plus and REX 4 TD. Do I need to run both programs with FSX or just REX 4 TD? And if I run both with FSX them what is the start up? Do I start REX4 TD first then REX Ess since it has the weather engine. Thanks Brian
  22. Hey Guys, I just bought a NEW system, I have the "Joy" to re install my complete FSX software and ALL my planes and ALL my addons! My main question to all of you is: My (OS Win 10 Pro )hard drive is a SSD 512 GB . I do have room to add a dedicated SSD for FSX and all my addons, is it better to keep FSX and ALL the addons on a seperate SSD or just put it all on the Main SSD with Windows 10 ? Thanks! Appreciate any replies.. Harley
  23. Once you've selected a weather cell, altered the variables in that cell's weather element tool and placed that cell in a number of places on your WX map, is it possible to go back into that cell's weather element tool, change the variables again and place that newly amended weather cell in additional places on the WX map and have REX4 WA "remember" the different weather element tool variables? For example, I select "light storm" and set the wind direction to "N", wind speed to "15 KTS" and visibility to "30 SM". I then place several "light storm" weather cells in my wx map. Now I re-enter the weather element tool for "light storm", change some of the variables and place several more "light storm" cells in different places in my map. Will REX4 WA recognize the difference in the "light storm" weather cells and reproduce them accordingly?
  24. Am wondering if it will be possible to change the water like in REX ESSENTIAL PLUS? I use ESSENTIAL Plus right now for water because I can change water like plankton and saturation etc...
  25. I bought P3D v 3.1 and would like to install REX Soft Clouds in it. I have the following files, do I need them all or in which order do they need to be installed? rexsoftclouds rexsoftclouds_sp1_20150109 rexsoftclouds_sp2_hotfix1_20151002 rexsoftclouds_sp2_patch_20150810 Jørn Lundtoft
