P3D: REX Weather Architect

Recommended Posts

REX WA can create some dramatic weather for sure!

And it´s very good fun to fly the community created themes and flight plans if you look for a challenge!

If the weather gets really severe, the FPS drop quite dramatically into the upper teens on my system. That is with Texture 4 Direct clouds in DXT5 Format and the cloud coverage set to medium in P3D. It´s still very smooth and flyable, and it really looks amazing:

Looks great Michael!  Ok here's a challenge for you since you are your own "weather architect" now :lol:  Let's see some massive thunderstorm shots or better yet a tornado B)

Thanks for your comments!

I just downloaded several service packs and new texture SP for Texture Direct. (Obviously I never updated this program yet... ;-) )

I'll do some more flying and experimenting tonight.

It's great to see bad weather cells approaching on the horizon. And the layers and density are definetely different to what I see with ASN on my system. Normally, I use REX Soft Clouds. But since WA offers the possibility to choose the correct cloud textures for the weather you've just created, I use Texture Direct clouds for WA in P3D, and that alone is a look I am not used to anymore! ;-) I like it!

I'll post some more shots tonight!

i dont see anything special there at all

 

So what were you expecting,  since  the user obviously  is  just  testing  the addon,   and  there be no difference if  he were to use   a weather  engine or  WA If  you want  to see a vid on it  check out  this link and go to the 24  minute  mark
