REX 4 Texture Direct Enhanced Edition Imminet Release

REX will tomorrow release their updated and enhanced version of REX 4 Texture Direct for FSX, FSX Steam and P3D V1 to V4. This is a FREE update for current users of Texture Direct. It comes with a new integrated global environment texture and effect software as their previous product did. Furthermore it will be compatible with DirectX 9 to 11 and of course it doesn’t matter if you own a powerful or weaker PC, it will work just as good on both. It comes in a package of 17 GB so it does take a bit of space on your storage. 2GB of it is brand new textures, which is what makes it the enhanced edition.

A fully detailed feature list can be found at their website, but here are some of the key features below.

  • All new textures, more than 16.000 files. This is the reason why it is 17 GB.
  • Intellectually Synced Texture Engine that works with REX 4 Weather Direct and REX 4 Weather Architect software.
  • Lightning fast installation of new textures, at most it takes around 5 seconds to load it in.
  • Capable of network.
  • Individually textures can be installed or if you like as a whole theme at once.
  • New unique types of cloud base structures
  • New cloud types such as Cirrus, Cirrostratus, Cirrocumulus.
  • Worldwide tropical water classification fix which gets rid of the repetitive texture effect.
  • All airport receives a payware upgrade in both FSX and p3D such as light to runways.
  • Dirty and soiled runway markings are also coming
  • Support for larger aircrafts markings like for instance the 777.
  • Smoother transition at dusk and dawn on the algorithms.
  • A enhanced and highly detailed ground rain effect

This product can be purchased from The REX Store, SimMarket, Flightsim Pilot Shop and The Flightsim Store once it is released. Price is 19.95 USD at REX Store or 21.19 EUR incl 25% tax at SimMarket.

At SimMarket if you previously purchased REX Essential Plus w/Overdrive FSX P3D or REX Essential PLUS (BOX) or REX Essential German Version (BOX) you are entitled to a discount upgrade price that varies where you are in the world. If you own Texture Direct already, this is a free update.

REX Release Soft Clouds for Prepar3D V4 and Provide an Update on Development

REX has today released an update for Soft Clouds which adds P3Dv4 compatibility. The team has been working over the past few weeks to ensure that the product integrates nicely with the new sim. You will need REX Soft Clouds – Service Pack 3 – Hotfix 4 if you wish to install this update. Furthermore, there are a few things to be mindful of, so we’ve summarized them below.

If you use REX Texture Direct with Soft Clouds combine, DO NOT use this update. REX has confirmed that an update for these users will be available soon. Another thing to be mindful of is the following:

During the installation process, the installation wizard will ask you to identify a location where to install the upgrade. Be sure to click the “Check for Updates” button and select the main folder where you originally have Soft Clouds installed. If you do not select the correct location, the upgrade will not work properly, and you will have to start over.

The installation process should be pretty straightforward, but REX have supplied some step-by-step instructions on how to install over on their forums. You can download the update from this link.

In addition to that, REX have updated their roadmap for P3Dv4. I’ve copied the information down below for your convenience. Keep Reading

‘Updated for Prepar3d V4’

A lot of stuff this week was released with compatibility for P3DV4. And there was almost just as much news from developers announcing their plans or giving us an update about their support for the updated platform. Instead of making a whole bunch of different posts, we’ve decided to collect everything that has been updated for Prepar3d V4 this week into one post. And there’s a lot.

REX

Over on their forums REX gave us an update into their product status for P3DV4. WorldWide Airports HD, Texture Direct, Texture Direct w/Soft Clouds and REX Soft Clouds will shortly receive a hot fix to be compatible. Release is estimated for this month.

Weather Architect, Essentials Plus and Essentials Plus Overdrive will require a major service pack to be compatible. The release time is yet to be determined.

ImagineSim

ImagineSim announced over on Facebook that all their sceneries are now compatible with P3DV4. People that have previously purchased any product for P3DV3 will receive a free update. ImagineSim compatible sceneries are: KATL, KLGA, ZSPD, KAUS, VIDP, KSJC and KCLT.

Jetstream Designs

These guys took the time to give a really nice update to some of their previous sceneries. Both updated with P3DV4 support are Marseille and Little Rock. The latter has also been updated with volumetric light halos. But that’s not all, because both sceneries got a nice overhaul and are now featuring brand-new, completely updated SODE jetways. You can find some screenshots of the updated sceneries below.

Drzewiecki Design

UUEE Moscow Sheremetyevo, EPWA Warsaw and EETN Tallinn have all received an update to be compatible with P3DV4.

LatinVFR

Miami V3 is now compatible.

MILVIZ

MILVIZ will be updating the majority of their aircraft. This includes aircraft that has previously been released for P3DV4, with a few exceptions. MILVIZ have stated they will issue a $5 upgrade fee. Every upgrade will come with MILVIZ new MVAMS tool which is used for framework features and includes the capability of updating their products in the future.

Global AI Ship Traffic

This freeware add-on loved by so many also got an update to P3DV4. The add-on has been split up in several separate parts which you can install almost independently (some files are required). There are a lot of new models (the total amount is now 179) and routes added that cover the entire globe.

Airports of Norway

AoN, my personal favourite, got updated as well. This (freeware) package will continue to receive updates to fix issues with airports as they are being found.

Aerosoft Oslo Gardermoen

A big update coming from Aerosoft. ENGM Oslo has been updated for P3DV4 and a lot of new features have been added. The full list can be found over here. Notable though is definitely the added support for SODE for animated jetways, passengers and de-ice service. Another very notable feature is added support for Prepar3d volumetric lighting for flood lights and the headlights from de-ice trucks.

BlackBox Simulation

Last but not least on our list is BlackBox. These guys have updated both their Aviation Bulldog & Cessna L19 aircraft for P3DV4 for free.

We want to ensure that you make the most informed decision you can. We will always put the Simmer First as per our Community Charter. When reading, please use of Review Guidelines to help you understand how we review products.

REX Studios released an interesting product not long ago. Worldwide Airports HD! The goal of this product was to improve the textures of Default Airports. Now they have improved textures of airports before, Mostly in the surface and marking department. This addon however set out to improve the building textures of default airports. To quote their own feature list, “Give all default airports the payware treatment.” A very ambitious project indeed, and a really good idea. Since it was 10 years ago some of you may not remember that moving from FS9 to FSX, airport buildings saw a massive texture upgrade. But now those textures do feel a bit lacking when compared to dedicated scenery addons. So if this addon truly accomplishes what it sets out to do; Then it will surely be a must have addon.

REX Environment Force status update

I’m sure that many of you are wondering whatever happened to REX Environment Force just as much as we are. It has been pretty quiet around the product for a long time. Only a few updates back in December 2016 were given. These announced the products moving from a development phase to a beta testing phase. But a few hours ago REX finally gave us an update again!

In a small forum post REX announced that Environment Force has gone back to the development phase. They say that they are about 85% done with beta testing, but there are still a few things that need to be changed for both FSX and Prepar3d. Once these things are integrated and tested the product will continue testing before being integrated with its user interface.

Short and Sweet: REX Sky Force Status Update

REX have updated the community with a short and sweet post highlighting that very soon they’ll be soon in beta testing for REX Sky Force.

Since their initial trailer back at Flight Sim Con, the team have been hard at work creating improvements to their upcoming weather engine. Things have been “changed” and “updated”, with some amazing things coming soon.

Finally, if you’re  auser of REX Essentials’ weather engine, the Sky Force model system will take full advantage of it when Service Pack 4 has been released.

It won’t be long before Sky Force is on your system and in your Sim and we cannot wait.

Full post below:

Well the news has been a long time coming, but there is great progress in regards to Sky Force.  Many of what has been seen from previous videos has been changed and updated.  There are some pretty amazing things coming down the pike.  Stay tuned for more information as we should begin beta testing within a few short weeks.  In addition, good news for users of the REX Essentials’ weather engine.  We have optimized it to take full advantage of the Sky Force model system.  This will be released with Service Pack 4.
