Anyone tried ENVTEX?

Purchased last night and finally I think as16/Asca is looking brilliant - adds so many new textures to Asca for use.

 

The shaders it installs are also nice, overall good add on :-)

Can it be used without ASCA and still employ the dynamic textures feature?

Does it enhance ASCA full dynamic sky textures? Or does it overwrite them?

 

Thanks,

It seems like other than sky textures it just duplicates what other addon packages provide (REX, ASCA, PrecipitFX, PTA, etc.). This is not a bad thing as it appears to be somewhat of a Swiss Army knife for only ~$20.

I don't have it yet but the documentation says it does work with the dynamic modes.

I have it and think it's well worth the money for sure. I'd give it 4/5 stars works well with ASCA

whether it is the sky textures so much better than REX,ASCA sky textures?

And what about the other textures,like clouds, ocean, airport ?

I have REX, ASCA,PrecipitFX, PTA.

Is it worthwhile to buy only a new sky texture 20 bucks?

Hi Guys;

Sky textures - you can select ASCA mode within ENVTEX and it'll install sky textures into ASCA's folder and so if you have ASCA on global dynamic then it'll automatically use ENVTEX textures for so much variety - works brilliantly behind the scenes.

The plan for the future is to do the same with clouds! Watch this space ;)

In addition theres an array of textures including water, wave animation, sun, moon and clouds incase you don't want to use ASCA cloud textures just now... The sun also comes with a glare effect which adds a natural glow when flying towards the sun...

Overall a good addon, it's subtle but adds overall to the immersion.

Yes - although I've been using REX4 for water/waves in past year - it's quite nice to be honest and can't quite put my finger on it, but I do a mixed bag of flying whether NGX and so on or in a Bae Hawk doing low level around the welsh valleys...

Are all the features optional, so you can choose what to install and what to leave out (as it doubles with some add-ons as well)?

Yeah, it's all tick boxes - think the way REX does with textures, you can select what you want and don't want to be inserted into P3D...

You're the developer?

One more question: Is it compatible with the PTA (Prepar3d Tweak Assistant)?

 

Thanks and kind regards, Michael

I was curious since you talk about the prodcut, especially in the first few posts like your either the developer or somehow involved with the software. Especially when you say "Watch this space."
