Rex Texture Direct with Soft Clouds in v5

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone could tell me whether installing Rex Texture Direct (with soft clouds) and/or Worldwide Airports HD is worth installing in v5.

I purchased both a while back and haven't migrated to v5 yet. Thing is, the sea, advanced atmospherics and some other textures are already in improved in v5 out of the box, so curious to know if installing Rex will kind of just get 'in the way' now?

Thanks for any advice.

If you don't plan on using the Enhanced Atmospherics (True Sky) you may try out soft clouds and textures for the sky. As for Worldwide Airports, no. The airport default building and surface textures have been vastly improved. In fact, if you look at default airport textures in V5 closely, they look just like some of the WWA textures with PBR added. Makes me wonder if LM didn't let Rex do the texture work as they had ORBX create the new default airport. Either way I've retired WWA personally and Active Sky P3D being out I'm committed fully to True Sky and have retired Soft Clouds and Texture Direct.

Me as well. Can't wait for Rex Texture Direct (with soft clouds) to be updated, however, in their recent update statement REX makes no mention of v5 compatibility for Texture Direct :(

I am not too sure if I messed up something in v5 but my grass textures are all blurry. Was hoping to use Texture Direct to improve grass textures but I guess we'll have to wait for it. Any one else have really crappy grass in v5?

Said by every flight simmer about an upcoming hardware upgrade for the last 20 years 😄

Still no update of Rex Textures for P3D v5.1 I have ASP3D and am not happy with the visuals which are hazy and lack distinct clouds. Is there an alternative, for example, can REX Weather Force provide a better experience?

If I am not mistaken did REX not supersede Soft Clouds with Skyforce 3D. Texture Direct is partially replaced also by Skyforce 3D.

There latest announcements have not mentioned any P3D updates or compatibility with v5 for Texture Direct or Soft Clouds. I am doubtful as to whether you will see  any updates from REX on these older products.
