Can I use Active Sky Next with REX Essentials?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Does anyone have any experience using ASN with REX essentials plus overdrive? The reason I ask is because I already have REX but want to use the ASN as the weather engine. My question is Do i have to get REX4 in order to use ASN or can I somehow use ASN with REX Essentials?

 

Thank you

Hi,

 

Do you need to do this every time or is okay to open rex, send the textures and not do this again until you decide that you want to change the textures?

 

Thanks

Once you have set up the textures you like in Rex, you don't have to open Rex again. Unless of course, you want to change your textures.

I run ASN first...then start REX...then I use REX to start FSX..........and that sends the textures to FSX you have set up in REX........Works for me.......

I use REX4 and ASN, and absolutely love how they work together. Personally, I like to open REX4 first and tell it to generate a texture set based on the current weather/cloud conditions at (or near) my departing airport. It adds about 60 seconds to my sim launch, but the payoff is that I get to fly in a unique sky every time. I never really know what I'm going to get until I am sitting in the cockpit. I like that.

 

Then I launch ASN, then FSX.

 

By the way, REX4 loads textures roughly 300 million times faster that REX Essentials. It's a worthwhile upgrade, even if you don't use ASN, in my opinion.

 

Good luck and enjoy.
