We have to take care of our developers to ensure they stay with us, so (strangely enough) I'm hoping REX charges a small upgrade fee for this.  This is only because of all the new files and capabilites that were produced, they worked on them and should be compensated for their work, otherwise they're just a freeware developer.  Moreover, this is far more than just an update.

I know, none of us want to pay for anything we don't have to, but there is a bigger picture, one that means keeping a great developer in our community.

Best wishes.

Well it will be free if you already own Rex 4.

This is FREE for our customers. 

As it stands now:

  • All stores have the updated full version of Texture Direct Enhanced Edition. When they will have it ready we don't know and have no control over.
  • The download update for Texture Direct Enhanced Edition is ready and available on our forum.
  • No need to get it from the forum as the update for Texture Direct Enhanced Edition is live within the application itself. Simply open Texture Direct and you will be notified of the update.
  • The full version of Texture Direct with Soft Clouds Enhanced Edition will be sent to all the stores later this week when ready and the update for that version will be available at that time.

Did you make sure to follow the user manual when it came to the proper settings?  I don't see you at our forum, did you seek help?

Thank you for all the effort and hard work. Yet another valued developer who takes time to ensure their products are truly compatible. And at no extra cost to us. Appreciated.

Hi everyone

I would appreciate feedback from anyone who has tried it yet  .....

I use ASCA and would be interested to know how it interacts with Dynamic and Global modes

Cheers

I'm liking this. I just spent $200 last week on orbx products with their great sale. 

I'm buying this rex product straight away. Damn this hobby that I love 😉

My wife is going to kick me out of the house if she finds out! LoL

It does not and I doubt that it ever will.

This is the primary reason why many have switched to ENVTEX.

I find that some ASCA clouds & sky textures are very nice. Most are not.

I also wish ASCA modes would work with REX 4. This would be wonderful until Skyforce is released.

You may want to hold off until the REXTD+SC is released.

I've heard this a few times, and when I investigated with the user I found two things, either they thought that the product would create a payware airport environment (impossible to do given how ESP was created - except for the 40 Enhanced Airports), or the person didn't understand how to get the most out of the product.

30+ years in flight sim with at least as many payware airports and anyone else in the community has, and I absolutely love World Wide Airports Extreme.

Ive been simming 30 years myself. it just didn't live up to my expectations. I have REX4 and Soft Clouds and think they are fabulous and a must have. I just don't get the same excitement from airports HD

As compared to what?  Default airports?  Zinertek?  What were you expecting from the product?  I believe these are questions which should be addressed if one makes such a statement.

I think it's merely a re-packaging of old stuff. Nothing more I guess

Are you serious? We have never released a package like this before:

1.) All custom terminal buildings, hangar buildings (small, med, large), parking garage, tarmac, parking, runway, taxiway, and jet ways textures

2.) All brand new core 3D model airport vehicles

3.) New airport signage

4.) Cohesive runway and taxiway graphics - these are NOT from our older products, these are brand new.

I don't understand that statement.
