    REX4 Texture Direct is a new integrated global environment texture utility and effects add-on for Microsoft FSX, Prepar3D v1.4 and v2 and is DX9, DX10 and DX11 compliant! Texture Direct takes advantage of the new core features of Prepar3D v2 while enhancing both FSX and Prepar3D v1.4 to never before seen heights.

    Tailored to low and high-end systems, REX4 Texture Direct is comprised of over 16 GB of material ranging from standard resolution to high-definition choices.

    All new textures... over 16,000 files, most with enhanced algorithms. Texture Direct has a large, easy to read user-interface, and texture installation is lightning fast!

    REX4 Texture Direct Features

    • All new textures... over 16,000 files! (16 GB)
    • Intellectually Synced Texture Engine works hand-in-hand with REX4 Weather Direct and REX4 Architect
    • Enhanced algorithms
    • Large, easy to read user-interface
    • Lightning fast texture installation
    • Ability to select and install textures individually and/or create custom 'themes' to install a full suite of textures instantly
    • Powerful new theme protocols: Local, Weather or Community, where users have the ability to share texture sets (themes) with others using Texture Direct
    • Rating system for shared themes
    • Ability for users to select weather scenarios or enter airport code to have texture themes generated based upon weather conditions
    • Ability to auto start simulator after texture injection
    • Easily switch between simulator preference (FSX, P3Dv1.4 & P3Dv2)
    • Network capable
    • In-app system notifications
    • Check for updates feature built-in
    • DX9, DX10 and DX11 compliant
    • New unique types of cloud base structures
    • Low/Mid-level 3D clouds, including Stratus, Cumulonimbus, Cumulus, Stratocumulus, Altostratus and Altocumulus
    • High-level clouds, including Cirrus, Cirrostratus and Cirrocumulus
    • 14 types of lightning: IC, CC and CG
    • Worldwide tropical water classification fix, eliminating the repetitive texture tiling effect. Water boundaries blend much more realistically
    • Water textures and wave animations compliant with DX9, DX10 and DX11
    • Ultra-realistic airport environments made from custom, high-definition aerial photography
    • Give ALL default airports in FSX and Prepar3D the payware-style treatment, from light to heavy use runways, taxiways and pavement markings! Highly detailed textures, including runway textured lighting encasements. Originating from HD source photography, runway tire markings are properly scaled within the simulator creating a more realistic viewpoint. Runways with light or heavy wear... your choice, over 32 to choose from, the highest definition textures with the most fidelity on the market!
    • The tire marking build-up is fascinating when using the heavy use runway option. Many types of runway grooving and material selection
    • Runway lighting encasement textures added to runways to give more depth and a more properly scaled feel
    • FINALLY, dirty and soiled runway markings at all airport runways worldwide! No more blown out white marks interfering with your immersion
    • Runway markings now support larger aircraft such as the Boeing 777
    • 28 amazingly detailed taxiways developed from all types of concrete, asphalt and bitumen
    • Runway and taxiway detailed planar bump-map effects
    • Spectacular terrain bump-mapping effects, modeled from different materials. Support for ORBX airports
    • High-definition taxiway markings with extreme clarity
    • Beautiful photo-realistic skies sampled from many locations around the world. HDR texture option included for Prepar3D v2!
    • Properly balanced terrain light and shadow values during dawn and dusk
    • Smoother transitional algorithms during dawn and dusk times
    • Realistic corresponding haze layer values when encountering the proper WX
    • 23 types of runway edge and taxiway lighting, some with simulated ground glow
    • Extremely detailed and enhanced ground rain effect
    • Realistic dirty airport parking and jetway marks
    • Easy to read, enhanced airport signage. Different lighting conditions dictate the range of colors from yellow to orange and red to amber. A wonderful shiny finish with matte black backings
    • Sun, corona, glow, flares and special effects, giving the most realistic renditions of atmospheric conditions. Panning around your aircraft at different angles during beginning or end of day will yield just how dynamic these effects can be. Rendered for DX9, DX10 and DX11!
    • With REX leading the way in water rendering, the new tech built into REX Texture Direct will leave you speechless. Rendered for DX9, DX10 and DX11.
    • Environment sound effects. Jaw-dropping in/out cockpit precipitation and thunder sounds

      This is only for FSX, Prepar3D1, and Prepar3D 2.

      We're going to be gauging the interest, if it's viable, then yes.

      Is there any ways the effects and texture sets could be made to work in fs9?

      I understand there is a discount for current REX owners. I bought mine a little over a month ago.

      What is the point of this new REX? Are their existing textures no good?

      I am losing track of where I am with REX - essential, essential plus, overdrive, extreme, latitude and now this REX4 Texture Direct. I am sure it is excellent but where will it end?

      14 different types of lightning? Please explain and define IC, CC, CG.

      IC, CC and CG mean :

      IC: In-Cloud ( non-visible lightning but lights up the cloud )
      CC: Cloud-to-Cloud ( Horizontal lightning, partly visible and lights cloud interior )
      CG: Cloud-to-Ground ( standard, strait-up lightning )

      These are the three different types of lightning that we encounter when flying.

      Regards !

      REX4 is textures only. Once installed you may use them with any weather engine you prefer. There is no need to remove REX E. You may still use the other features of REX E. Weather engine, flight planner etc.

      Thanks for this information. But they claim to have 14 different lightnings!

      I wonder what happened to SimAIR? Still waiting for that product after 3 years almost...

      Is this version of REX a stand alone product or simply a add on for the previous version.

      It's only a texture pack of 16,000 textures and the engine to inject them (proper folder) into FSX

      I bought REX TD along with Opus & am I able to Install all of textures from Rex or am I only allowed to Install one theme.
