Hello all, I am trying to find the best way to close the REX Sky Force 3D application (after my flights and shut down of FSX) without using the mouse click option. I have sent inquiry emails to the software support staff, but I keep getting a prepackaged response that in no way addresses my issue. Can anyone here assist? Thanks as always.
I "did a few things" and just thought to show some pics of SF, after reading negativity that i cant really understand. For me it enhanced the sim in a not before seen way. Since SF also comes with PTA presets some pics wont have "Clouds" as main theme. Its about the whole, including the Sky & PTA it brings. Thank you REX Team.... this product is immense fun. And i feel as if i just scratched the surface.
I have to say this was the most visceral experience I've ever had within flight simulation. With the combination of PMDG's 747 v3's "Cockpit Shaking Feature" partnered with the real-time weather generated by ActiveSky, I actually began to sweat during the climb out to cruise. I knew the weather wasn't the best, but the weather I experienced was completely unexpected. Pictures do not convey enough of the situation. I wish I had recorded it. Normal pushback from A-26 at KIAD. Slight indication that the weather would not be the best as I taxi away from the gate area out to the runway. But certainly nothing I could not handle...right. This is where I realized what I got myself into. Confirmation that this was going to be a hell of a ride! Then I further realized my flightplan took me right into the path of the storm. A view from the outside. What you don't see and what these pictures do not convey are the up drafts, down drafts and turbulence passing through the clouds. The "Cockpit shaking feature" that PMDG introduced with the new 747, made the ride terrifyingly real. At this point I realize the worst isn't over and hope the weather tops out below FL350 which is my planned cruise. I ended up amending my cruise to FL370, which did not help. By the way, notice that I have the anti-ice system on. Several ice warnings while going through the clouds. I must of heard the stall warning twice (fleeting, but still heard it) with the shifting winds. We got through it and performed a normal cruise across the pond where we were greeted with this great sunrise. A bit of cloud cover over London, but a heck of a lot better than when we departed Dulles. Not sure who was happier to land, me or the plane. Safely parked at Heathrow.
