Skyforce and enviroforce for V5 +

Recommended Posts

Hello all, does anyone have ideas about skyforce+enviroforce coming to V5 /5.1 anytime soon, I really enjoyed using this combo in v4 with AS as the wx engine. The reason I ask, a lot people saying AS+Asca+envtex is looking pretty good in v5.1, so Iam wondering when I install 5.1HF1 next week do I abandon REX and go with AS/Asca and envtex (I have all previous versions of the above so no purchases necessary I believe). Iam not convinced yet that EA is good enough to adopt, although LM and Hifi are doing their level best to improve it, anyway that's a long enough, thanks people!

First I don´t think so. Because REX have a small team and invested in Weather Force for MSFS.

All their other products are not compatible with P3D V5. End Environment force had even unsolved issues in P3D V4! Strange oil/dark blue shadings at some angles around the plane surface. Obviously shading problems.

With V5 the lighting model changed massively so a lot of work to do. 

I don´t think they will update any time soon (next 6 months +). Maybe never. We are waiting for updates since april.

REX have been quiet about v5 updates. I believe they said they were working on it but heard nothing since. 
 

I’m using AS + ASCA with EA off in V5 and its working well now the clouds have stopped flashing all over the place! 
 

I don’t have env tex as I was using Rex Environment Force for that purpose in V4.

I did address this question about updating Skyforce to P3Dv5 directly to REX several weeks ago and they confirmed to me that this definitely is their intention. I asgree it takes long but I still am confident this update will come one day!

Who`s going to be supporting P3Dv6 as i will still be using it, and in future that`s where my money will be going to the Devs that support it.

Unlike other sims we don`t bulk at spending more that £20 for an addon when it done well.

Thanks guys, I guess (for now), when I upgrade next week to 5.1HF1, I will go AS+ASCA+Envtex+Fslabs++++++, the the rest of compatable addons, until my next screw up lol!

Just point your REX Skyforce if you already have it installed for P3Dv4 to the P3Dv5 folder instead within SF configuration panel.This will work even though there's no official support from REX on this- long running saga. Best to not delve deeper!

Or as you mentioned, invest in ASCA.
