"Installation was smooth, I followed all instructions as REX posted in the Install Guide. The textures are great, FSX runs smooth and looks awesome. I have also REX Essentials +OD and the new Direct Texture is even better, hard to believe. The time to load theme was around 2 seconds so I did not even believe and thought it crashed or something, but it did load. BTW it does not replace Essentials but simply co-exist with it so you can really use either one, your choice of preference. Bottom line the best textures from REX so far and probably the best textures available period." - David Papis

"If you do not have this, you are seriously missing out. This makes the game 10 times better than normal. AWESOME. The best add-on there is for FSX. This is a game changer. The texture sets are truly amazing and up to 4096x4096 High Definition. Don't think, buy it now. Worth every penny. It also has a very simple and user-friendly interface." - Jerrod Corey

Awesome, the sky & clouds look so real!" - Mark Carey

Terrific. A must have. It's amazing! My fps are great! 40+ with an MSI 7870 and an AMD Processor @ 4.2. I love it!" - Liam Bailey

I'm really impressed by the beautiful simplicity of the menu. The textures load uber fast from a Solid State Drive (SSD) (like 2 seconds!) and they look and run better than ever. I thoroughly recommend REX 4 to anyone who is running Prepar3D v2 from an SSD." - Anthony Neave

"The textures look phenomenal and extremely realistic. Those Nimbostratus Pannus clouds look exactly like the actual ones in a picture I took while in the air a while ago when I flew. Fantastic job REX team!" - Hank D.C.
