REX Essential Plus and Overdrive are ready!

Recommended Posts

What the title says. You can download the stuff through their forums. This needs a verified account. They've set up various servers, so make sure to check the right version and load it. :smile: http://www.realenvir...eme.com/forums/ Mind the banner.

 

For checking your current version and the needed upgrade, check this thread (and pdf) first! http://www.realenvir...e-announcement/ This prevents you from downloading the wrong files. And they are big! ^_^

 

Find the manual to the enhanced product here. http://www.realenvironmentxtreme.com/forums/index.php?/topic/21741-rex-essential-plus-manual/

 

The change log looks sweet and I hope I can test it soon. Not to mention that this is a free update for existing customers. :Party:

 

Edited. Yikes, seems like I've arrived two minutes too late. Well, now there are two HUs. Sorry for that.

Yeah, this is really interesting, I will try REXE+ again soon, For the fun of it I will get AS too, really great to have three good WX engines to compete on how to be the best, all struggling with the old FSX code. Come on guys, buy all three, support all the teams working so hard ;-) The community will benefit greatly!

Seems as if mine is broken. Everything is smooshed in the window, I tried to post this in the REX Essentials forum, but they wont let me upload a screen shot. I can't pick textures or really do anything.

I too have considered trying out AS2012 to see what are the difference beetwen the three and see what i like best.

My conclusion with REXE and Opus isn't that one is better or the other but they do things differently and It all depends on what you like. I was i.e sceptic about letting the camera handle the turbulence effect but when I saw it, I kinda liked the way It worked and now I'm not really sure what I like best. :P

The main reason I bought Opus whas that I got really tired of the waiting time for weather too download and the SP1. And since there whas so much talk about it I decided to give it a shot.

I have received an email from FlightSim Store about this upgrade, so presumably the correct version will already have been determined?

Yep, me too, I got that too.

 

Currently OPUSing at the moment, so unless this updates textures as well as engine, I probably won't Download just yet.

For the time being all four download links are inaccessible, probably due to high demand. Earlier today I managed to start downloading from the CDN-site, but download times were around 7 to 8 hours (with FDM). Guess many of us have to wait until the initial locomotion has passed.

 

Regards,

Rene

My goodness... what's in a name... Real Environment Xtreme Essential Plus Overdrive... In a year or two, three we will have Real Environment Xtreme Essential Plus Overdrive Extra Deluxe Crucial Principal Capital Abnormal Extensial

 

Maybe they just should have called it REX 4.0...? ;) (And created ONE installer to bring everyone to the same level at the same time? ;) )

 

Anyway, I'll pass. I don't need yet another weather engine and I certainly don't need yet another few gigabytes of cloud textures! (I still use the ones from version 1.0 if I am not mistaken).

Still, don't get me wrong: of course it's absolutely great that they keep on releasing stuff like this for free!!! No doubt about that! I'm not complaining! ;)

I had the same issue. I installed the upgrade into the wrong folder. :rolleyes:

 

Just make sure you install into the REXe folder

All servers seem to be down.

 

More likely all servers from REX and FSS are being hammered.

 

Some 4 hours ago I was lucky and got a download going, but speed is 25 KB/Sec, on a T1 connection, some 32 hours to go.

 

EDIT: I just cancelled it, need to go.
