REX Sky Force 3D has been updated with a new technical update, bringing a wealth of features, fixes and changes to improve the user experience. REX have been listening to feedback from the community about what to change and update since its release back in January of this year. The huge list of changes is available for both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the product.

Some of the new features that have been added include the ability to set between 3 levels of density related to stratus overcast, set the default favourite airport which now shows in the Weather Center, full support for Prepar3D V.4.0 and a weather refresh button to the engine status window. Fixes include scaling issues on Windows 10, major jumps of the altimeter, and various weather implementation issues including cloud-syncing, visibility and OAT/TAT/SAT displaying erratic temperatures.

REX Summarises What Hotfix 2 Will Contain for Sky Force 3D

Shaft

The release of REX’ Sky Force 3D has been taken in well by the community so far. There has been plenty of feedback given to the developers and they’re working to meet the demands of the community. Not long ago, they released hotfix 1 of the product and have already described what will be coming in hotfix 2.

Hotfix 2 will look at various areas of the platform including new installation fixes, meaning any future updates will ensure that the last saved user configurations are kept in tact and that you won’t have to re-register the application. Furthermore, there has been some fixes with the settings page, including showing to the user what the impact of the textures will be on the frame rate. There has also been some improvements to the control options as well including minimising the application to the taskbar or system tray on start up.

Additional fixes also look at the textures, environment window, weather and flight center, and also the weather engine itself. Some of the bigger fixes in this hotfix include ensuring that OAT / TAT / SAT temperatures don’t cause issues during climbs and at higher altitudes, fixes to missing cloud layers and ensure that weather is actually injected for P3Dv4.0 users.

The full list of fixes and changes can be found below. You can find the details on their forum, but it’s restricted to registered users only.

 

You can buy REX Sky Force 3D from SimMarket. And don’t forget, today (Jan 20th 2018) is the last day you can enter our giveaway to win a free copy of the product!

We’ll have a full review early next week.
