CLOSED Proper start up procedure with AS4, ASCA, ENVTEX, ENVSHADE, REX SkyForce, REX Environment Force

Recommended Posts

I have been browsing through the various threads and could see a few points and recommendations here and there, but since your product is compatible with all the listed products in the title, would it not make sense to offer a proper start-up procedure so as to avoid the trial and error frustrations of having so many add-ons taking care of the weather and the environment and also - and above all - make sure we benefit of the full potential of Environment Force?

For example, could you review the following procedure and correct/complete it if you see any error in it or have better suggestions:

  1. Start AS4
  2. ASCA starts automatically after AS4. Question: Do we have to unselect and un-install the textures that we had selected before installing REF?
  3. ENVTEX and ENVSHADE Question: we have to open them or not? Do we have to remove the imported selection of textures and shades previously installed in P3D before installing REF?
  4. REX Sky Force,. Question: Do we need to start it or leave it closed (my understanding is that it can be left closed)?
  5. REX Environment Force starts (Automation for me)
  6. P3Dv4.5 launched.

Thank you for your helpful clarifications.

In relation to #2, #3, and #4 - if you are ASCA then you will not want to start Sky Force as it will mess with your cloud textures and models.

In relation to #5 - make sure to start in Automation Mode, but disable the "Enable automated texture sync" option.

Many thanks for your reply, I believe I now understand better, one needs to make a choice of textures "provider", hence, the best combination would be to avoid using ASCA and ENVTEX/ENVSHADE altogether and use only Sky Force and Environment Force. When reading the advertising I initially thought Environment Force would pick and choose the best adequate textures within any existing of the textures software, it does, but it must be in one or the other not in all of them.

Last clarification please, in Automation mode and using ONLY Sky Force as the source of textures and structures, do we need to open SF or not?

Thank you.

No, it does not need to be open.
