Ok this is what I have noticed below like 1500 ft water animations are present and sweet - above 1500 ft about - animation is gone thinking its a P3D thing not a rex thing - all in all much happier with this than what we had - thanks Rex team

Rich, previous versions you could see waves at 20,00ft , unrealistic. Thanks for the heads up downloading now

Thanks for the tip Richard, waves are ok now. Indeed they do fade the higher I get which is ok from what I remember in RL. The only time you could see them at 10k ft is if there were large whitecaps flying over Lake Michigan. 

 

Tesselation also effect water too if I remember right.

At 44' elevation I think that we may have a problem at EGNL.  [Memo to self: Check ATIS for Weather, Wind and Tide Heights!].  Does anyone have any tips about flying float planes? :P

After installing this update, my first impression after a short bad weather flight is that the clouds are far more convincing. Not referring to spinning or flat or vertical clouds although I didn't see any of that. I am referring to the repetition of textures, i.e. seeing numerous instances of the exact same puff of cloud multiple times. Often even in the same cloud. This I found to be the most annoying thing in REX4. I never say that in REX essentials and I have always considered REX Essentials to have far more realistic looking clouds. However, with this latest update I did not see any textures repeated in the sky scape and the clouds looked great. early days but it looks promising:-)

It'll take time to be more certain, but obviously water is allot better now. the glistening effect is more gradual with more dispersed coverage.... and the waves also are appear more natural with a similar improvement in dispersion.

 

The clouds at first glance have a more natural appearance.. more shapely perhaps with better definition. But this part will require more flights etc to be sure.

 

All in all, it seems REX's excellent product has been refined even further, and that's great value for me! Thanks REX! Now, when will we finally see weather direct and architect?? Can't wait.... Lol!
