This is looking really good! Well done.

You mentioned that the lighting changes when a weather systems builds, from the demo, when the thunderstorm grew things still looked very bright is this adjustable or was that just the Alpha and things will be improved? 

Thanks

What you are seeing in the demo is an alpha test.  Everything in there is manually done.  With the full version, we are working on these processes will be automated - if you choose to have them automated.

Is this also a real-time weather engine or a tool for creating custom weather?

Will this replace my REX TD4 w/Soft clouds. Currently im using REX TD4 w/soft clouds ONLY for Airport textures and Water Textures....EVERYTHING else in it is turned off. Im using SF3d in conjunction with REX TD4 but SF3d is used for my weather engine and for Clouds, rain, sun, sounds, etc. Will this Environment Force be the top dog which is the only Software that needs to be loaded up with P3d and is our new weather engine, cloud texture, water texture, airport texture, winds, rain, sound???

Hi there,

Environment Force is designed to work hand-in-hand with Sky Force - it does not make it redundant.

You cannot create custom weather with this.  We are presently working on a major overhaul of Weather Architect for that.

It is not a real-time weather engine.  That is what Weather Force is.  However, it will GREATLY improve any weather engine on the market.  However, you do not need a weather engine to use it.  It has many other features to it.

First, you should not need to run REX Texture Direct with P3D running.  It is only meant to be run once when you need it.

Environment Force is meant to work along with Sky Force.  It will improve the Sky Force weather engine until we release Weather Force.  However, Environment Force does much more than  just weather enhancements.  We will show more later.

Hi Reed,

Sorry if this has been asked before but this comment just reminded me about historical weather. Will that be added to Sky Force or will that be part of Weather Force?

Cheers
