  1. SUBJECT: REX EDGE Servers, Sporadic Outages, and Coronavirus TYPE: ALERT LEVEL: HIGH DATE: Friday, March 27, 2020 EFFECTIVE DATE/TIME: Friday, March 27, 2020 END DATE/TIME: TBD TOPIC: Dear Customer – As you know over the past several days, we have been experiencing outages with our data servers. In conversation with our hosting firm it has come to our awareness that our outages are not just our own. Our hosting firm as well as many others have been hit hard by the tremendous load put on ISP’s due to the coronavirus pandemic worldwide. This load has been felt in many sectors as many have been forced to stay at home from work and school. Most ISP’s have reported they have exceeded their full year 2020 projected usage within the past week. Though not communicated directly to us, it appears that we are low priority when it comes to bandwidth usage. We are looking for ways to offload this and hope to have a solution soon. We will continue to work for a solution in this time. Thank you for your patience and we truly apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.

  3. SUBJECT: Download File Error Resolved TYPE: ALERT LEVEL: HIGH DATE: Thursday, March 19, 2020 TOPIC: We experience an issue yesterday with our CDN in which they switched their security protocol.

  5. Getting conflicting advice over at Avsim forums on this.... My question is if using Active Sky for my weather engine and EF for the texture changes do I also need to run SF in the background for smooth weather transitions or do I leave it on Auto and close it before running P3D...? Other than AS which REX products also need to run in the background when starting P3D? A little confused.... Thanks!
  6. The Software is for many users still unusable....
  7. Hi there, I'm still waiting for this to be fixed which is marked to be 'fixed in the next patch'. Can you advise when this will be done please as there's been a couple of new versions since I asked this to be done? Many thanks Matt
  8. Is there ever a date for the next update. Today I also had the mistake with the Night / Day circle. It has already written a lot about this problem. For a long time no info has been written about a revised version. Frank
  9. Hello, I have come across a strange situation that when using EF my P3D day/night cycle doesnt work. It does not get light when it should the only way of seeming to change this is going to time preview and moving it forward five mins then back, this then gives the correct light for the time of day. I have unistalled EF and the Day/Night cycle once again works fine. So I believe it is related to EF. ANy help would be appreciated
  10. I currently have REX WORLDWIDE AIRPORTS HD installed on drive C, my boot drive running Windows 10. FSX is installed on drive E. I would like to move or reinstall Airports HD on drive E. I would also like to do the same with REX Advantage Radar. Any help would be appreciated.
  11. Hey everyone, I have a sort of strange request. I bought REX WWA a while back but never installed it because I don't fly enough to default airports. I own REX Skyforce and REX environforce so I use those textures. I do really like the service vehicles that come with REX WWA so I am wondering is it possible to just install the service vehicles. REX WWA is also a massive size so I don't want to use all that space for a program that I don't have the full need for. Is there a way to install just the service vehicles and use only the size that those vehicles take up. I am pretty sure that I can install the full program and just select the service vehicles but does that mean that there is about 7GB just taking up space. I told you it was a weird question and I hope I explained it correctly. Thank you
  12. So I am not complaining about the product but I do have an issue. I like to watch the AI planes flying from place to place and really enjoy the views of the ground scenery passing underneath. But even when I have clear skies there is this kind of haze that blocks the view of the ground underneath. I think this is too realistic now and I am wondering how can I see clearly down to the ground? I don't mind some tweaking even if it's not realistic for me it's better. I understand that if you have cloudy skies then you won't see the ground but when I have clear skies I expect clear skies. Thank you
  13. I was experiencing problems with P3D not initially downloading the correct REX weather on startup. I resolved this by loading up my P3d default scenario flight and then changing the world weather to load the REX weather system - and then saving the default scenario. This overwrites the original default flight, which did not have the REX weather system associated with it. Now every time I start P3D it automatically loads the REX system weather without fail. Hope that helps.
  14. Hi, I am coming form a clean installation of Prepar3D, and I wanted to make sure that REX SF3D has a backup before I install new textures and models. So reading the manual but also the description in the UI, I clicked Backup. I then installed textures and tried to revert back, I click Restore, but the cloud textures I see after in Prepar3D do not seem to be the default one, but the REX textures/models. This is really annoying, cause I jut did a clean install. How someone can revert to the original P3D textures/models after he has installed REX SF3D?
  15. Hi, In my last flight, while cruising, I noticed the sky colour becoming so strange, the following are some screen capture. The sim was run with up-to-date SF3D, ASCA, ASP4 (the mix & match setup was mentioned in my last thread). Tomatoshade was installed with R&D Preset. Having so many addons, I am still not sure if the issue was related to SF3D. I would be grateful if we could sort it out together. Thanks, Anson
  16. I made my first test flight after the 2.2 installation. Clouds still not improved. 1- Storm clouds 2- Mix/ grey/white clouds
  17. I am still unclear on how to use a PTA preset. It says in the manual to browse to your PTA directory and install the preset? I may be making this harder than need be.
  18. I bought REX - Real Environment Xtreme v2.0 from the Flightsim Store several years ago. I am trying to buy Sky Force 3D (latest version) at the 15% discount price but I cannot find any REX products there listed at the FlightSim Store. Do they no longer carry REX products? If no; what must I do to receive the 15% discount when purchasing Sky Force 3D ? Below are the details of my REX Xtreme v2.0 purchase from the Flightsim Store >> REX - Real Environment Xtreme v2.0 Order Number: FSS0076712 Order Date: 2010-09-16 Thank you, Ken Boardman
  19. In the settings it shows version 4 grayed out and will not turn on,it shows version 3 turned on for some reason.but it will not inject weather into p3dv4.even that it shows up in auto weather. i have p3dv4 and skyforce and airports and wx radar installed all works except default version p3d and wont inject weather.pc-w10,1tb ssd,32 ram,amd gpu new big dont know model offhand. any suggestions??
  20. Got this from the manual: " With OR without the REX weather engine: Step 1 – Start Sky Force and minimize. Step 2 – Start your flight simulator and fly. The 3D cloud model sync function will automatically engage during flight. " Since I've installed cloud models those low level and thin stratus clouds and/or small individual (lots of them) puffy cumulus never appeared again in my P3D. It was common to appear before using REX SkyForce and nowadays it's so repetitive to have high FL clouds with (usually) several thousand feet thickness. It happens no matter I keep the program open in background or not. I understand that since I have once installed the models they will keep there forever. But will they change automatically (program running background) even with selected options untouched? How can I have a better mix of low and high clouds, depending on the reported weather? Is this a limitation of SkyForce?
  21. Hello I have exactly the same observation here. And I´m so used not to have those low level clouds that I haven´t thought about it. But now that i came across with this topic, I realize that it could add lots of realism and feeling to the sim. So please, if you could find a solution to this, that would make this fantastic product even better...
  22. Odd clouds over Bergen. This is flying offline with zero traffic.
  23. I have a question that has got me stumped. I bought REX SkyForce 3D months ago, and took a small break from FSX. When I came back recently, I opened SkyForce 3D and received a prompt to update the software. I did, and I am confused. Now every time I open the program I have to put in a registration pin, and it seems to never save. The weather will load somewhat fine, but in flight it gets odd. When the weather starts updating in flight, I lose aircraft power. Not much, but it is noticeable enough that I lose about 100-200 feet of altitude because of it. Also, it doesn't matter how long my flight it, every ATIS I come across in flight time stamps as 0000Z. I'm not sure if I am missing a setup option in the setting of either SkyForce, or of FSX, but I am a bit confused by it. Right now, it looks like I have version 5.0.2019.718. Any thoughts or help would be appreciated.
  24. In my case the issues exists. The latest build did´t had a release note part to solve this problem. So why would it be solved if it is reported due several users and REX did not release a patch to solve it? Please leave this as an existing issue till you rollout a release incl a fix for this one. Regards Marcus
