FEATURES

New 3D Cloud Models and Cloud Structures — The First In-Flight Sim
New 3D cloud model structures and SDK, patterned after real-world cloud classifications with their own specifications, positions and heights. Each of the 3000+ 3D cloud model structures were developed in comparison to their real-world counterpart.
We have added NEW clouds types, including; altocumulus, stratocumulus, humilis, mediocris, congestus, tower cumulus, cumulonimbus calvus, supercell and rainshaft, tornado, stratus, nimbostratus, altostratus and cirrus class. Real-world cloud model system including (but not limited to) cloud streets, super cells, wall clouds, funnel, shelf, rain shaft and tornadoes.
Restructured cloud SDK for true formation realism. No more upside-down clouds in bizarre and unrealistic positions, or cloud bases that are presented with repeating patterns.
Single-session cloud texture variation, allowing more variety during a flight session, increasing the overall realism.
The new cloud system models storm structures reaching 70,000 feet. We also modeled the base of our storm clouds and added rain shafts to calvus and incus cumulonimbus clouds of various intensities, adding to the realism. Also included are wall and shelf clouds, and in some circumstances, these will include funnel clouds and tornadoes of various shapes and sizes.

Real-Time Weather Engine
Intelligent weather engine that harnesses over 70,000 points of weather data globally. The weather engine reads and interprets live model data to sample the atmosphere and therefore will sync the appropriate clouds structures, allowing for more accuracy.
Utilizing the weather engine is as simple as opening REX Sky Force and the simulator. That’s it, everything is done automatically without the fuss!

NEW Photo-Based Natural Environment Textures and Innovative Sky Atmospheric Effects (20GB)
Fully DX9, DX10 and DX11 compliant. Tailored to low AND high-end systems.
Elevate this new visual experience through our new natural, photo-based environment textures while exploiting the power of PTA integration.
New techniques create a smoother, realistic and natural sky color blending at dawn and dusk as well as newly improved visibility and fog. With VBlend and Vaporous Skies, we have achieved more realistic horizontal and vertical day, dawn and dusk fog generation and sky visibility blending.
The sun atmospheric rendering effects are very cinematic and will be noticeable through the virtual cockpit, creating even more realism. Sun atmospheric rendering coupled with HDR elements included for use in Prepar3D 3 and 4.

Full 10-Day Cycle Sky Texture Sets
Included is our powerful 10-day cycle sky textures category. When the Sky Force 3D 10-Day Cycle is installed, the simulator will dynamically load a different sky color transition from sunrise through sunset each day.

Lightning Fast Texture Installation.
Installing textures into the simulator is lightning fast; in most instances this process takes less than 1 second to load a full suite of replacement textures! Ability to select and install textures individually and/or create custom ‘themes’ to install a full suite of textures instantly.

PTA Presets Built-In
The PTA presets included in Sky Force 3D were specifically designed for use with the sky textures and atmospheric effects in Sky Force 3D. The Prepar3D Tweak Assistant (PTA) is required for use with our presets.
Included are sample videos within the application showing exactly what the PTA preset/texture combinations look like in Prepar3D. We have taken the guess work out of the equation, and presented you with a full atmospheric representation ranging from sunrise through sunset.

Simplicity!
We went through great lengths to maintain ease-of-use for our customers throughout the entire Sky Force 3D GUI experience. PTA integration is a one-click install and all supporting textures, as well as the PTA preset are installed automatically.

New 3D Cloud Synchronization Process for In-Sim Updates
Synchronization technology which dynamically syncs 3D cloud model structures in real-time during flight.

Flight Center
The Flight Center in REX Sky Force 3D is a no-nonsense tool that is geared for those who want to view their flight plans and experience true weather along a route.
REX Sky Force supports the standard XML based plan file from FSX and Prepar3D. Importing a flight plan is extremely simple.
Export support for PFPX!

Also, you can take advantage and download a community shared flight plan directly from inside REX Sky Force, from our vast community base.

While using REX Sky Force, you are immediately in contact with an enormous user base in which to share your flight plans or download another person’s creation.
If you have a flight that was more like an adventure, then simply upload it for others to enjoy!

Interactive Mapping System
Integrated interactive mapping system provides 6 weather overlays to allow you to visually sample the weather prior to departure.
• Precipitation Overlay – Just like the weather syncs systems of today; you can view all the locations of precipitation. Our precipitation does not look like speckled paint spats, but true radar echoes. This overlay is viewable with all other overlays.
• Winds Overlay – 9 levels of wind from 3,000 to 53,000 feet can be viewed in this overlay so that you can make smarter decisions for better fuel consumption.
• Temps Overlay – 9 levels of temperatures from 3,000 to 53,000 feet help you avoid potential areas and levels of icing and rime.
• Pireps Overlay – This overlay lets you read position and data from real-life pilots across the world.
• Sigmets Overlay – This overlay provides not only US-based but global sigmet data in real-time.
• Metar Overlay – Utilizing that fact that our servers download the local weather data 6 times an hour gives you the most accurate view of the local weather.
 Flight Plan Overlay – If you import a flight plan into the Sky Force Flight Center, then a visual view of the flight plan is available.
• Major Airport Overlay – This map overlay provides a vital point of reference to help you as you fly.
• Major Road Overlay – To give more detail and help especially to the pilots who like to fly VFR, we provide a significant road overlay to follow.
• Zoom Feature – Allows you to zoom into the local level and zoom out to the regional level.
• Precip Opacity – Allows you to reduce the prominence of the precipitation echoes on the various map for simple reading.

Shared Community Environmental Themes
Feeling uninspired and just want to try something new? Filter through various uploaded environment themes to try out. For ease, we have provided the means for many of these themes to be categorized based on several weather conditions. All environmental texture themes are categorized based on how a user thinks the theme appears in the simulator, such as fair, foggy, rainy and snowy weather, dust and thunderstorms etc.
REX Sky Force continues to expand the tradition of providing a connected “Shared Community” within its products. Similarly, to our Shared Community Flight Plans, you can also share your environment creations within the program!
After you create an Environment Theme, you have the option to use our REX EDGE servers to pass on your theme to the rest of the REX Sky Force community.

Never Miss an Update!
The built-in Auto Update allows REX Game Studios to quickly, effectively and effortlessly deliver periodic and crucial updates to our customers.

Купил и начал осваивать REX Sky Force 3D. Честно говоря, видал я много всего, но появилось состояние легкого шока) Это что-то невероятное, очень красиво! Главное иметь хороший погодник а-ля Active Sky и поковыряться в настройках. Я глубоко пока не вникал, настроил в первом приближении и снял маленькое превью в грозовом оверкасте. Чтобы показать всю красоту пришлось поставить большой битрейт записи видео, не обращайте внимание на небольшие лаги. В симе фпс был 40-45. Вердикт - must have!

Полезная цитата об интеграции REX с сайта avsim.com

https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/528328-rex-sky-force-3d-with-active-sky-asca-envtex-tutorial/

Here are all the steps you need to take to get REX Sky Force 3D and the three most popular combinations with other related addons working in your sim.
All the numbered steps only have to be done once: after that you only have to actually do something in REX Sky Force 3D or ASCA or ENVTEX when you want to install new textures.

REX Sky Force 3D only
1. Start REX Sky Force 3D
2. Set all options to your liking
3. Install all the textures you want

When you want to fly:
- start REX Sky Force 3D
- start your sim

REX Sky Force 3D and Active Sky
1. Start REX Sky Force 3D
2. Go to Global Settings > Engine and disable all options on that page to disable the REX Sky Force 3D weather engine
3. Set all other options to your liking
4. Install all the textures you want

When you want to fly:
- start REX Sky Force 3D
- start Active Sky
- start your sim

REX Sky Force 3D and Active Sky plus ASCA for dynamic skies
1. Start REX Sky Force 3D
2. Go to Global Settings > Engine and disable all options on that page to disable the REX Sky Force 3D weather engine
3. Go to Global Settings > Install and disable all 5 Sky Textures entries on that page
4. Set all other options to your liking
5. Install all the textures you want (no need to install sky textures)
6. Start ASCA
7. Go to Settings and untick CirrusCloud Textures and Cloud Structures so only Sky Colors is ticked
8. Install the Full Dynamics (or Global Automatic) theme

When you want to fly:
- start REX Sky Force 3D
- start Active Sky, which will automatically load ASCA
- start your sim

REX Sky Force 3D and Active Sky plus ASCA for dynamic skies with ENVTEX sky textures
1. Start REX Sky Force 3D
2. Go to Global Settings > Engine and disable all options on that page to disable the REX Sky Force 3D weather engine
3. Go to Global Settings > Install and disable all 5 Sky Textures entries on that page
4. Set all other options to your liking
5. Install all the textures you want (no need to install sky textures)
6. Start ENVTEX
7. Go to Application Settings and disable all options on the right apart from Sky
8. Set the path to the ASCA folder and set ASCA Integration to ENVTEX textures only (or ASCA and ENVTEX textures)
9. Click on Install to sim (no need to select a set on the Customization page)
10. Start ASCA
11. Go to Settings and untick CirrusCloud Textures and Cloud Structures so only Sky Colors is ticked
12. Install the Full Dynamics (or Global Automatic) theme

When you want to fly:
- start REX Sky Force 3D
- start Active Sky, which will automatically load ASCA: no need to run ENVTEX
- start your sim

Of course there are other combinations possible with all available texture addons: you might want to skip ASCA completely and use ENVTEX for skies but also for Grass and Water etc. Or you might want to use REX Texture Direct for Water and Runways and ENVTEX for a few others... Everything is possible and the rule is simple: if you want to use specific options from a specific addon, enable those options in that specific addon and disable similar options in all other addons.
Some combinations are not possible though: for instance the dynamic skies need Active Sky to run so you can't get dynamic skies with the REX Sky Force 3D weather engine because you can't use two weather engines at the same time.
But well, with a bit of logic you should be able to work it all out... :happy:

Important note concerning REX Sky Force 3D's PTA integration!
If you are using REX Sky Force 3D's integrated PTA function be aware that when you install one of the PTA presets an appropriate REX Sky Force 3D sky texture will also be installed automatically! This means that you can't really use the PTA integration if you also want to use skies from ASCA/ENVTEX! Either REX Sky Force 3D will overwrite the ASCA/ENVTEX sky texture or ASCA/ENVTEX will overwrite the REX Sky Force 3D sky texture and things will probably not look as REX has intended.

Вообщем, из данного мануала следует, что нельзя запускать все три аддона одновременно с аналогичными пресетами, нужно повыбирать

Именно так, я использую связку: РЕКС (текстуры)+АС (погода), очень нравится, АСКА не нужна, сравнивал с ней и без нее, структура облаков рисуется достоверная.
