    Rant: Developers, wake up!

    That could be the answer regarding the scenery library. As a software engineer (not flightsim related) and as a user (simulators) I can certainly understand both sides. The new method is more forward-looking if the entries can be moved in the scenery library. Until then we have this hybrid method which imo not the best solution. I also hope that LM will add back the scenery library button to the main menu, currently I don't understand why it was removed from there in the first place. At a reinstall with a lot of sceneries, it's a pain in the word not allowed to load a flight just because I need to add some new entries, but this is a different topic.

    Rant: Developers, wake up!

    Of course, but I'm almost certainly sure it's not eliminated, otherwise the forums wouldn't be full of these kind of issues. To be honest I still don't understand the concept behind that these items cannot be moved in the library. However add-on switch on/off and install would be much easier with the new method, but because of this issue I still feel that this is "unfinished" development. Layer numbers can be edited in the XML (that's what Prepar3D add-on organizer does), so maybe they cannot be moved because the correct layer order would be the responsibility of installers? That can cause other issues as well..

    Rant: Developers, wake up!

    Thank god some of they use the old method! While add-on.xml method would be fantastic, it has its downsides: - Some add-ons install the whole stuff to the documents folder, which (at me, and some other users I think) on the C drive which is a small SSD for the system, and the sim is on an other (much larger) drive. - In the Sim, add-on.xml entries order cannot be changed in the scenery library, so with a lot of addons it can made a mess, even with a couple sceneries as soon as the install order is not in a predefined way (e.g if I buy orbx vector after an airport scenery and both would use add-on.xml method it won't work because vector must be below airports). Of course it can be reordered by an external tool, but that's not the best for beginner simmers/IT beginners. - In some cases addon sceneries overwrites some default files in the scenery/world folder (personally, I don't like this). I personally put all sceneries to the ecosystem folder and add to the library by hand or modify the paths in add-on.xml and/or scenery.cfg and I think there is no problem with this until it can work and we have our choices. :)

    REX Sky Force Very First look

    No it's not. It dynamically injects the cloud textures. Dynamic sky textures will be a feature of Environment Force, as the rex developers said on official forum.
