  1. I seem to be a minority, but I really enjoy the Random Weather function in REX. It seems to be the only weather program that comes with this feature. More often than not, the real-world weather does not match what I want in the sim. I may want to fly VFR but the weather does not allow for this where I want to fly, or it may be the other way around and I want a challenge but the sun is shining and winds are calm... There's also the issue of time zones and real time weather - in certain parts of the world, I would always get night weather when flying in the day because of the time zone difference. Of course you can create your own custom weather, but that's boring and predictable. Using Random Weather, I can throw in a few surprises while still sticking with an overall "type" of weather that I want. However the feature is a bit crude and underdeveloped compared to the real world weather. Are there any plans to develop it further? I think the old sim Flight Unlimited III is the perfect model: http://i.testfreaks.se/images/products/600x400/90/flight-unlimited-iii.2098266.jpg REX is already similar, but FU3 was more dynamic - the weather could change based on real-world principles and it was easier to manipulate the weather theme. Some more variety in terms of visibility and cloud layers would also be cool, and maybe some realistic real-world typical weather patterns (for example, some places almost always have strong winds, others may be prone to fog, some are very dry or get lot of rain etc.). Also you can only generate weather for a small area which makes it less useful on long flights. Another, smaller request - every time you start REX, it has to download weather data before you can do anything - even if you're just going to install new textures or generate random weather. If this step could be moved forward to where it's actually needed, it would make the whole program quicker to use.
  2. Hi Tim Reed It's like a whole new weather engine.the improvements are a giant leap forward for REX Essential.two and a half hour flight with constant cloud cover the whole way. Now you know i'm a REX fan and never complained about disappearing clouds while it loaded.that is now a thing of the past.and it makes a vast difference to REX essentials weather engine. just wanted to say thanks for the update and best wishes to you both. steve
  3. Just wondering if Soft Clouds HD is still in the works? I believe you guys said back in September that it was to be released "soon"? I love Soft Clouds but I also really miss my crisp 4096 textures, so I can't wait to be able to combine both!
  4. I have REX 4 and Soft Clouds installed and am wondering if I should also download Essential Plus with Over Drive since I purchased it some time ago. Is Essential Plus really needed and if so why ?
  5. Hey guys! i am trying to download the ENBPlus Natural from this site: http://www.realenvironmentxtreme.com/forums/index.php?/topic/14771-natural-enbplus-download-included/ i can't download that amazing enb! =/ I just reinstalled my windows so i lost it How to fix? Maybe anyone other got it for me? Greetings!
  6. Hi, I was wondering, since there is only one post on the forum that I can find related to this, that if the software stated in the title will be p3d v3.1 compatible at the same time as all the other products (i.e. REX 4 etc), or will there be a greater waiting period (as mentioned on the official update forum thread below)? Just curious since the update post was posted in October of 2015 and there has been no word about it since. Sorry if I am sounding impatient, I am just curious about release dates. Thank you
  7. Can you please tell me if any or all REX products are suitable for P3D V3? I read somewhere that they are but your website states compatibility with V1.4 and V2! Thanks Gavin
  8. I've been reading a lot of poor reviews with regards to REX4 and Soft Clouds in relation to FSX:SE. Lots of errors, issues, crashing, failure to load etc etc. Normally this wouldn't be a issue for me, but I'm in the process of moving over to the Steam Edition following the Games for Windows Marketplace closure as I'm unable to redownload FSX from the Marketplace. Just wanted to know what those of you with the Steam version experiences were.
  9. Hello, I understand weather architect lets you set different levels of weather in your route and it is also capable of integrating with REX 4 Texture direct and soft clouds which I have. My question is, if it is capable of downloading real time weather as alternate option? Thanks, ermias
  10. I have the first version of essential overdrive but have lost the files Were do I download the files and what updates do I need to become updated
  11. Quick question for the REX team: Building triple PC triple monitor setup for Prepar3Dv3 - must I purchase REX w Softclouds three times for ONE simulator setup? I just want to be clear - using WideView, I believe I would need REX w Softclouds installed on ALL the display PCs (three in my case). Don't mind buying if I have to - but if its OK to run all three off one license, I'm not against saving a buck Thanks REX! GREAT PRODUCT by the way. Pulled me right back to P3D from xPlane 10.
  12. Hi - I own REX Essential Plus (for some years - love it!) and just wanted to understand the main difference to the REX Texture direct? I really only use the texture features of REX which are great. I just wanted to understand what is the main point to the new product? I'm sure there is one - I just can't seem to grasp it from the website as it seems they do the same thing? Or not? The other worry is, if I purchased REX Texture direct I presume one has to reinstall all the original FS textures back first and uninstall REX Essential? Many thanks for advice / tips on this.
  13. I must be stupid, followed the links via Reed's post, can't find a hotfix for v3 P3D, that is Essential Plus Overdrive from 3.8.2014.1126 (SP3 installed after the December date
  14. Can anybody pls tell me whats happend here, both my Weatherarchitect and Texture /soft cloud gives me the same warning message. Brgds Henrik
  15. where do I get the Beta release Code?
  16. Hi, When I load flight plan that I created with FScommander 9.0 into REX 2.0 the load doesn’t work. All the parameters are blank (DEST, Origin, Aircraft type…etc.) but I do not get an error message. I am wondering were (in which Directory) REX looks to load the FScommander file. During the installation I was not asked to provide a path for FSC9. For now I am able to load the FSX version of the plan that FSC9 creates, but it doesn’t have all the info that FSC9 would provide, I think… Is there an INI or CFG file in REX where I can specify the PATH for the FSC9 flight plan directory? Pierre
  17. Hi Guys, Will the new Weather Direct be capable of multi PC networking when using Wideview? I am referring to a multi PC network bridge system like a couple of the other weather engines use. Thanks, Bill
  18. It's in the title any help would be great thanks
  19. Just wondering when P3D v3 comes out (30th September) will there be an update in the pipe line?? Also id like to just say a very big well done from the sim comuntity for you update on Soft clouds &texture direct..................awesome job there!
  20. Hey Guys, Ive been out of FSX for about a year, winter is here and Im back.. I see REX has some more software for FSX, I currently have REX Essential/Overdrive.. I was looking into Texture Direct/Soft clouds & Weather Architect. Are these 2 Add on's to what I currently have oe would replace my currently installed REX Overdrive? Since Ive been flying with REX I never have any winds in my Sim.. They might be there but really doesn't effect my flying ( crosswind landings or take offs etc ) Would weather architect add more wind to the sim ? Thank you for any guidance,
  21. Does any one know if the REX team are seriously considering releasing a much needed add on environment enhancement that will deepen terrain shadows to throw terrain hills mountains and ridges into higher relief depending on the time of day just as experienced in real life flying. And will there be any attempt to introduce cloud cast ground shadows in further releases, I feel that these environmental textures will significantly enhance the visual realisim and flying pleasure for FSX pilots...Lockheed Martin's Prepar3D V2.2 has managed to do this,I just don't understand why REX has not seriously considered doing the same!
  22. I've read the Rex4 w/SC manual and poured over this forum but I haven't been able to find out what the installation scheme is for installing textures. Here are my questions: 1) How many textures of a type (say clouds) can be installed for use by FSX at one time? 2) Is there only ever one texture (of a type, say clouds) that is available at any one time? 3) If only one texture (of type) can be made available to FSX (through install) at any one time, does the installation of another texture just overwrite the previous one? 4) What is the regime for levels of clouds? Do they all follow the same "rules". For example, where are the altitude boundaries between levels, if there are any? 5) When you re-open FSX, are the installed textures there or do you need to re-install them through REX first? Suggestion, a paragraph or two in every REX product manual on the installation concept for textures and the cloud level concepts as well. I just get the feeling that I'm supposed to know this as NO ONE mentions it. But if you're new to this, someone has to tell you so why not the manual. Thank you, Eric Anderson
  23. Dear REX Team; I was trying to find some information about this, but cant really find anything. I have two questions for you: 1. Will REX Ess+OD will have further updates or service packs? Or your team just mainly focuses on REX4 TD and REX3 is the thing of the past? 2. Do you plan to bring the Check for Updates feature back to REX3? I.e. Just how Soft Clouds has it and REX4. (Check for updates) Many Thanks,
  24. Hi everyone, I have been out of the flightsim community for a little bit over 4 years now. I didn't follow all the developments either, but now want to start fresh with P3D v2.5 and get my system running again. When I was still active 4-5 years ago REX was just released and soon followed by some HD clouds add-on. I got both back then. Now you've got multiple products on your website and I am confused which to buy (or upgrade too). What do I need? Is one product better than the others? Or are they all designed to be used together? I see the following products: - REX Essential plus Overdrive (Perhaps I already own this? Or do I need to buy a new version?) - Soft Clouds - Texture Direct - more... ? Please give some advice, thank you, sincerly, Carst
  25. What do you use then. I tried all the settings but the only one FSX will work under is User Defined Weather ? By the way I have all REX software since REX 4 / REX Essentials plus Overdrive / REX Weather and yesterday I purchased REX Texture Direct. I ran REX Weather before I had Texture Direct and it worked great. I have to say, you guys have done an awesome job with your textures and I really like the way you don't just go into a wall of one weather theme to another. They are well blended. Having said that. After spending money on Texture Direct , it made absolutely no difference to the weather engine, and by the looks of it, it was very similar to REX Essentials plus Overdrive. My question is ..... did I really need to get Texture Direct or was Essentials plus Overdrive doing the job fine. It certainly looked that way. Not to worry. You guys go out and have a drink on me.
