FSElite Exclusive: Envtex SP2 Previews

ENVTEX Previews 16

TOGA Projects have kindly provided us with some exclusive Envtex Service Pack 2 information and eye-catching previews to share.

Word of SP2 comes nearly two years after the initial release of Envtex which has come a long way in terms of development. Continuing development and providing support for Envtex is really important to the developers. They would like to thank everyone who has believed in and supported their team in one way or another.

TOGA Projects endeavour to deliver a low-cost, user-friendly and high quality but most importantly, a complete utility. They hope they’ve been able to bring such a product to the market with such qualities but with always having room for improvements. The devs took a look back at the first version of Envtex and realised how much the current product has evolved. Almost every file was updated and they could almost say that it’s a completely new product with no upgrade feed ever to be charged to you, the end user.

Based on the feedback received, the devs have worked on many aspects of the utility but they’ve especially paid attention to the clouds which was understood to be a weak point. Creating new cloud models was a pointless idea as the majority of the community use HiFi ASCA and REX SkyForce 3D clouds, so they’ve decided to support both, as they do bring along their own cloud textures, TOGA Projects felt that they could bring something different that would fit both products. The challenge here was to make the perfect compromise between realistic-looking soft clouds and photorealistic clouds. Hopefully, they’ve succeeded in doing so but with the end-result to rely on community’s judgement.

Flight Sim Expo 2018 | Introducing REX Environment Force

Wowcloud

During our time with REX at Flight Sim Expo 2018, a lot of time was spent talking about Sky Force 3D and its future. A large part of that future is the introduction of a new product: Environment Force. Although it’s been spoken about before by the team, we’re pleased to be the first flight sim news outlet to provide you with in-depth details about the forthcoming product. We’re awaiting on some video footage to really highlight this technology, REX were keen to give the community a written description of Environment Force to set the scene before showing it off fully.

I’m not usually one to just publish a press release, but I know how much time has gone into creating the write up by the team at REX, so on this occasion, I’ll be copying it below word for word. This isn’t due to laziness, but I want to ensure that I don’t miss any details or word something that doesn’t match the vision the team had. Of course, if you have feedback regarding this, please just tell us below.

To give you a summary of the product, Environment Force aims to be a complete dynamic weather system featuring weather morphing (clouds building up in real time for example), dynamic cloud colouring, recompile shaders on the fly and more.

REX Environment Force

The Universal Real-Time Environment Shader Enhancer, Dynamic Weather & Texture Controller

The first living environment in flight simulation.

 

With it’s living environment, there is nothing like Environment Force on the market.

Environment Force breaks the paradigm as no other weather, texture, environment or shader enhancer on the market is able to accomplish full living environment control in real-time, on-the-fly (in-sim) while giving you instant visual feedback! In the past all these elements had to be modified outside of the simulator. Environment Force allows a new and different approach to the environmental factors that cannot be accomplished any other way, providing full immersion.

 

THE TECHNOLOGY IN ENVIRONMENT FORCE ALLOWS FULL CONTROL AND VARIETY OVER KEY ELEMENTS OF YOUR FLIGHT ENVIRONMENT WHILE THE FLIGHT SIMULATOR IS RUNNING! IN REAL-TIME AND ON-THE-FLY, VIA A USER-CONTROLLED INTERFACE OR THE FULLY AUTOMATIC REAL-TIME DYNAMICS ENGINE.
