Good news to get. Xenviro will do a basic enough approximation until then. I was going to get SMP4 but now I probably won't bother.

It's not exactly news since that thread is more than a month old and IIRC Rex have announced their intention to develop something for XP some time before. Their priority however lies with Skyforce and as far as I know they haven't announced any specific plans for XP yet. Let's wait and see what they actually have to contribute to the platform.

Yes, but if it is true. Why they said that, they will develop?

Nice good to know, I just deleted REX for FSX and P3D. I am also deleting FSX and P3D with all my add-ons.  Maybe I will look at P3D 64bit in the future but now I will only use X-plane 11.

I'm not sure if I understand your question. Why shouldn't they tell about their plans to develop for XP? A lot of companies do that: They announce their intention to develop something, but remain vague because they don't know themselves what and how it'll be. And instead of promising something they may not be able to deliver, they phrase things in a more general way so no feelings get hurt.

REX is a comprehensive weather engine?

That's what REX said about x-plane 10 when it was released. Still waiting...

I was about to say the same thing ! I was one of the original guys to ask the question in their forum about XP-10 and 11. And got the typical positive response.

They have their hands full with FSX, P3D V4, FSW. If they do release something for XPX it will be years from now, if at all. So don't hold your breath guys !

Probably should rename this thread 'REX officially aware of X-Plane 11'.

Or something like "Following Orbx statement, Rex announced they will develop for XP11" :dry:

Exactly. I do not know why they are making false hopes.

That's what they do; hyperbole marketing is thy name....

Hello everybody!

I'm very happy now because I heard the REX is coming to the X-Plane 11! I found a question on the REX forum.

There is: https://www.realenvironmentxtreme.com/forums/index.php?/topic/44573-moved-from-fsx-to-x-plane-11/

Answer: Xplane is definitely on our radar scope and plans.

So the REX is coming! :)

And then watch Austin ruin it all with his gigantic ego :(

I hope REX doesn't come to XP11, and this "staking out territory" business is annoying. We already have two payware options for weather that satisfy different needs -- XEnviro and Skymaxx Pro. I don't think we need another weather plugin that is essentially cosmetic.

What we NEED, is for Laminar to wake up and give us something better than the simplistic 2-dimensional weather modeling in the underlying sim. Something that can model discrete weather fronts and towering CB's with internal vertical convection. Scary thunderstorms. There are no scary thunderstorms in this sim, at least in the visual and dynamic sense.

I know the mantra is "choices are good," but I don't want to see yet another cosmetic weather plugin, that will continue giving Laminar a pass on a weather system that is nowhere near as good as the aerodynamics and scenery in the sim.

If it is something like SkyForce3D that is coming I'll let REX 'stake out' territory all day long because quite frankly, REX has better artists and designers than SkyMax and xEnviro combined and their 'eye candy' art will bury the other two in the Earth.    See, I think X-Plane users are so use to the bad weather that they are just happy to have something like SkyMaxx and xEnviro to rely on but honestly it is a crutch... they are mediocre looking and performing when compared to pretty much all the weather platforms available in FSX/P3D.     Yeah, we need the weather engine itself to be better (and who is to say REX won't be the ones to do this instead of waiting for Laminar?) but we also need more than... what is that on the BMP file...  20 cloud bitmaps at the most?    Please... you cannot generate diverse looking weather with that.    SkyForce3D uses hundreds and hundreds of cloud bitmaps to generate pretty much every single kind of cloud pattern you can see in the real world from the surfrace all the way up to 40000 feet.    It is insanity to not want that kind of detail brought to X-Plane because 'its just another eye candy program'.   Come on over REX, my wallet is waiting.

Another thing Rex are known for...water.:happy:

Which might not be needed soon. There was some mention of a new method worked out for improving water colors, especially things like shallow water colors in the tropics. It didn't make the cut for the first XP11 version, but I assume it's still on the near horizon.

This is the kind of thing that I would much rather see in the base scenery engine if they can manage it, rather than a payware add-on.

Interesting - altough I'm not sure I would purchase it. xEnviro with HD freeware cloud textures is quite good... I don't know - depends on, what they'll develop for X-Plane

It's always welcome to have more variety of realistic looking sky textures and clouds in X-Plane!  I feel Xenviro has the most realistic looking sky textures and clouds, but never purchased due to the restriction of needing an internet connection after activation and no custom weather.  Hopefully, REX makes a debut soon.

i think it was the other way around ;)

JV is great at leashing it out on others but when he is on the receiving end its something different. And if one snarky comment (and tbh a very deserved one) is enough to walk away hurt then you are a manchild ;)

Also lets be honest, Austin had never anything to do with the reason. He used X-Plane to get some attention for the other posts, or even worse, never bothered to do some intel before the announcement to realize that x-plane does not have a built in DRM.

X-plane clouds always room to improve them and same with the sky.  If Rex can improve it no brainer to buy.
