actually I didn't buy from REX originally but it still gave me the discount on the REX store, I think because I registered on the website.

REX team, it appears missing Paypal orders can be added back to our Order History manually upon submission of our order details, can you please confirm if we can expect this to happen tonight? This is the last chance to test/fly for many of us before the start of the work week!

Good! Because I use ASP4 with SF in P3Dv4.1 and I still get those pesky .Net errors every now and then. In fact, I'm in the sim right now on the ground and I just got the error about 30 minutes ago! And my SkyForce is updated to the latest version, so the first patch didn't fix my issue. Oh and I'm happy about the transparent clouds being fixed as well, those were kinda an eye sore to me lol

In the meantime (for those people using PTA) I found the knocking back the brightness of the Cirrus a fraction and beefing up the lightness/saturation of the other clouds helped a fair bit with respect to Cirrus "poking through".

Okay I'll try that, thanks. I feel like SF has a long way to go before it's "perfect", but that's totally fine. Nobody expected it to be God's greatest gift to man on its first version. I'm just happy the REX team is listening to their customers, and fixing issues that arise. As for me, I'm still searching the skies for a towering system and I have yet to find one. I guess it's because of the winter time idk. And no rain shafts yet. I've had rain, but no shafts. Still searching high and low (literally) for those two items.
