    The website clearly defines what the product does as well as the images: http://www.rexworldwideairports.com/ On the website it says what it is: "Global Airport Graphic and Model Enhancement" REX Worldwide Airports HD is an extensive photoreal global airport graphics package created from real-world airport structures and supporting environments. These environments were authored from high resolution photography all around the world from real-world counterparts, and will customize and transform over 24,000+ airports within the simulator. Highly detailed 3D airport ground vehicle models included! For use with FSX, FSX:Steam and Prepar3D. We replace all the textures of the default airports (except the enhanced airports which is about 24 that Aces Studios customized) with better textures. We have also updated the models for the key airport vehicles which is about 5 total for now. We have gone to great lengths over the past several months to try to dispel myths and mis-information spread through out the web. We even created a Discord channel where people can ask direct questions of the developers.

    Control towers has been discussed about being updated. I remember that conversation with several users. Stating it will be included in a future update did not mean it meant this update. We have made several updates since the original release. Just like those updates we didn't promise control tower updates either. The focus as stated before has been to update the textures for P3D v4. There have been major changes to the P3Dv4 textures. The original textures during our initial tests were very washed out. Especially, the specular graphics. This fix and others were fixed in this update. If that original version worked fine for you then that is great, but we definitely saw issues so hence the update.

    Trying to maintain two versions or even more separate versions for each flight sim would end up being a nightmare to control as time went on in development. Again the choice is yours in the end.

    I think you are confusing announcements made about upcoming updates. These were announcements made while we were at the FSExpo show. These are all future updates, but were not apart of Technical Update 3. In regards to naming conventions for updates we have purposely tried to isolate the specifics into simple terms: Technical Updates = code fixes and related issues Creative Updates = major upgrades and new enhancements We felt that just using hotfix, upgrades, updates were not descriptive enough. But I guess we can't please everyone.

    No one is requiring a user to install the update if they don't need it. However, we strongly recommend it because we also have fixed some issues we found from previous tests. They are not show stopping issues, but items that needed to be repaired.

    NO that was not the claim. We have clearly communicated that we were focused on updating the textures to support P3D v4. We had to make changes because the old textures would have looked washed out. We had to manually update 15gigs of textures. That doesn't happen over night.

    Again we have always communicated this was a update for support for P3D v4.

    We have always communicated that this was a Technical Update. Meaning fixes and updates to the textures to support P3D v4. Again we did not HYPE anything here and this accusations need to stop.

    That is false information, we never promised control tower replacement in this build. We have clearly stated that Technical Update 3 was specifically focused on updating the textures for Prepar3D v4.

    Thanks @kevinfirth for your posts in Discord. Great feedback. BTW I posted in there an explanation about the weather engine, but you logged off before I had a chance to post it. Anyone else is welcome we appreciate your feedback.
