Special Enhanced Default Custom Airports

There are a handful of airports within the simulator that were originally developed by ACES containing custom terminal graphics. Although these airports will now globally benefit from Worldwide Airports HD, some terminal textures will not be affected. We are re-developing these airports with proper detail and customized textures throughout, and as they become available we will update this area. These add-on airport packs will be FREE to all Worldwide Airports customers.

Customer Testimonials

 

"Really good add on, it does everything as advertised. I'm sure I will spend many hrs exploring the options. You can save many custom files. No big impact on frame rates." - Clifton Croom


"I just installed the software and did a few short flights to check out the airports and I think (Wow someone finally got it right). I was surprised at how easy the installation and product setup went. I have purchased many addon products for FSX and P3D flight simulators but this is one of the most worth while I have ever added and it works as advertised. It dose everything it claims it can do and it's very easy to set it up to do it. You really need to see the improvement to FSX airports to understand how much it adds to the flight sim. I was surprised at what it really added and I find it well worth the purchase price after just a few flights. I have paid more for other products that did not even come close to delivering what was advertised. Nice job REX you did get it right." - Darrin Rawlings


"Nice textures, user friendly configuration tool ! Lot of customization available. Great add-on to give a refresh to your default airports." - Antoine Lebourg


"REX WorldWide Airports in one of the best add-ons that I have used. I fly all over the world. Airports big and small and this makes any default airport come to life. The runway textures and lighting options are just amazing (does not matter if you're flying into an international airport or a small puddle jumper). On top of that is the all the different hangar options. Very satisfied!" - Matt Dirck


"It has really breathed a new life to FSX and P3D for me. I don't buy many addon airports as there aren't many for the area I prefer to fly in here in the southeast USA, and the new textures are a huge step up from the old bland textures. For less than the cost of a single quality addon airport I make my default airport's look better, plus the runway textures, runway lights, grass, as well as much better looking airport vehicles. And I don't want to forget the night lighting with these textures, it is really awesome. And from what I have read the program will only get even better as REX adds new features, like control tower textures, and textures for the high detail default airports as free upgrades. Very satisfied customer here!" - James Mobley


"This is exactly what the P3D/FSX sim community required. A 3rd-party package to fill the gap between default generic airport scenery and pay-ware airport specific scenery. How the REX building textures bring realism and scale into what was a barley recognizable 2 dimensional blurred environment. It was about time there was an overall sim default upgrade to airport scenery other than specific airport enhancement. For the price this is a frugal investment for less than the price of a single enhanced airport you get all the airports redone. Yes there are the few a specific airports that have special buildings but from what I read there are coming later as a free upgrade. The crisp airport environment and remodeled ground vehicles are just a bonus this product is worth the building textures alone and with the coming vehicle and building upgrades WWHD in my opinion is well worth it." - Murray Bremner


"The artwork it is clearly a high degree better in detail including bump mapping and spectacular textures to add to the scenery ambiance.This is not just about pixel density. It is about higher detailed artwork and that is where REX excels. The details of the textures they provide are on an order of magnitude higher than the overall increase in density. Using good artistic techniques the overall image is sharper and more defined than the standard ACES provided muddy textures. The bump mapping adds a third dimension to low polygon count scenery and the spec map reflects and provides a sheen. Glass has that extra dimension and REX choose to provide lots of glass. (Glass terminals and jetways really look fantastic!) REX also improved the basic pushback tug, fuel truck and baggage tug. These are easily noticeable and look great next to the newly textured terminals. I use FSX:Steam with the DX10 fixer and overall the frame rate at airports has remained about the same. Nothing has been noticeable enough for me to question installing REX WWA HD and when you consider what is actually improved and the degree is was improved the ability of the computer system to move these larger textures was never really in question. Overall this product does what it says, but for someone with heavy add-on scenery you may have to search for this improvement at some locations. There is also about 100+ other textures that were improved on top of the selectable options. Many smaller airport objects will look sharper and include bump and spec mapping. These are hardly noticeable in the sim and I would have missed the fact they were improved had I not browsed through REX's texture folders. Like broad area scenery improvement products this product is designed to rid the muddy ACES textures from your system. No more flying over high quality Orbx scenery to land at bland default airports." - Kenneth Goodpaster


"I was looking for this product for a long while, and watching it from the beta work. The guys made an excellent work, if you already have some rex products you will find the menu very familiar. It's working on the same way as Texture Direct, you choose the looking for the main buildings, hangars, runways, lights, and so on. The FPS are very good, and also the VAS usage. Using the A320, Orbx products, Fs global mesh, the VAS is arround 2800MB starting P3d with 2048 HD textures. I bought it on day one and no problem occurred. It's a good purchase, well done!" - Ilario Masala


"It's a really nice upgrade for default airports and frame rate friendly. The taxiways and runways textures are better than in Texture Direct. The difference between runways and taxiways lighting are also better than in Texture Direct. If you have REX products already, the interface will be really familiar. I do recommend this product as long as you don't mind some major airports remaining with some default textures and you get a little nice discount if you have purchased REX products before from SimMarket." - Raul Daumont

3000+ Realistic 3D Cloud Models and Cloud Structures

The clouds in the simulator are modelled in 3D, just like the aircraft you fly. Instead of a handful of 3D clouds that currently reside in the simulator, we have created thousands of new 3D cloud models (cloud structures) and cloud types developed in comparison to their real-world counterpart. These include altocumulus, stratocumulus, humilis, mediocris, congestus, tower cumulus, cumulonimbus calvus, stratus, nimbostratus, altostratus, cirrus class, cloud streets, super cells, wall clouds, funnel, shelf, rain shaft and tornadoes.

We had to gut the current weather and cloud model system within the flight simulator. One of these core elements was to develop a new cloud model system built around the exact world cloud classification system.


– Patterned after real-world cloud classifications with their own specifications. 

– 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 cloud streets, super cells, wall clouds, funnel, shelf, rain shaft and tornadoes.

sf_8.jpg

– Restructured cloud SDK for true formation realism.

– No more upside-down clouds in bizarre and unrealistic positions.

– Single-session cloud texture variation, allowing more variety during a flight session.

– The 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.

– Wall and shelf clouds, and in some circumstances these will include funnel clouds and tornadoes of various shapes and sizes.

Real-Time Weather Engine

– The weather engine harnesses over 70,000 points of weather data globally, and reads & interprets live model data to sample the atmosphere and therefore will sync the appropriate clouds structures, allowing for more accuracy.

– Using the weather engine is as simple as opening Sky Force and the simulator. That's it, everything is done automatically without the fuss.

 

Photo-Based Natural Environment Textures and Innovative Sky Atmospheric Effects

– 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 (The PTA tool add-on is not a requirement).

– Smoother, more 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 yield cinematic results creating even more realism. 

Full 10-Day Cycle Sky Texture Sets

– When the 10-Day Cycle is installed, the simulator will dynamically load a different sky color transition from sunrise through sunset each day within the sim.

Streamlined Texture Installation Process

– Lightning fast texture installation.

Select and install textures individually or create custom 'themes' to install a full suite 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, but not necessary for normal use.

– Sample videos included presenting the results of PTA preset/texture combinations. We have taken the guess work out of the equation, and presented you with a full atmospheric representation ranging from sunrise through sunset.

– PTA integration is a one-click install and all textures as well as the PTA preset are installed automatically.

 

3D Cloud Synchronization

Synchronization technology which dynamically syncs 3D cloud model structures in real-time during flight. 

 

Flight Center

– View your flight plan and experience true weather along a route.

– Supports the standard XML based plan file type from the simulator.

– Download a community shared flight plan directly inside Sky Force from our vast community base.

– Immediate contact with a vast user base in which to share or download flight plans.

– Easy, one click upload to share.

 

Interactive Mapping System

Provides 9 weather overlays, allowing you to visually sample the weather prior to departure.

   Precipitation OverlayDetailed precipitation overlays

   Winds Overlay – 9 levels of wind from 3,000 to 53,000 feet.

   Temps Overlay – 9 levels of temperatures from 3,000 to 53,000 feet.

   Pireps Overlay – Read position and data from real-life pilots across the world.

   Sigmets OverlayProvides global sigmet data in real-time.

   Metar OverlayFor accuracy, our servers download weather 6 times per hour.

   Flight Plan Overlay – If you import a flight plan, a visual view of that plan is presented.

   Major Airport OverlayProvides a vital point of reference as you fly.

   Major Road Overlay – A road overlay for VFR pilots.

   Zoom Feature – Local level to regional level zoom capabilities.

   Precip Opacity – Reduce precipitation echo opacity for easier viewing.

 

Shared Community

– Filter through various uploaded environment themes.

– For ease, we have provided the means for many of these themes to be categorized based on several weather conditions. 

– 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 Sky Force community.

"Weather Engine needs updates (they come) but the rest is best there is out there for P3D. Adds so many cloud variations and features that ASCA does NOT have. So worth the money for me easy." - Alexander Wolff


"I will admit, I had doubts about this product but i am very happy to report i am in love with the new clouds & textures. Great job REX!" - Wayne George


"Good product! We hoped that the developers will bring it to mind. Will delight us with new updates! I use it in P3D v4, after the last fix so far all seems OK!" - Sergey Kazakov


"Amazing Product. I use V4 and this product has enhanced my visual experience by a lot. Altogether truly fabulous! Highly recommend this product." - Edward Taylor


"Excellent product I'm very happy with this purchase. Well done REX." - Angus Rowlands


"REX provided a patch today that allowed me to get the software up and running with FSX. I was impressed that it appears they worked onto the evening last night and at least part of today to get the patch into user's hands as quickly as possible. It's a big program with a lot of options and an 85 page manual." - Dale Sinder
