        Peter Stark - PC Pilot

        "There is no doubt REX Essential is one very powerful product that can raise FSX/P3D to another level. It is also a fact that while the interfaces allow users to select textures, flight plans etc with relative ease, your experience gets better with time as you learn to more fully appreciate the features built into the product. The PDF manual is essential reading to get you started and before long you will use REX in a way that suits your type of flying and your environmental preferences. From that day, you will not fly without it! It is innovative, powerful and certainly elevates the immersion in flight simulation, and so makes a worthy PC Pilot Platinum Award winner."

            "Sometimes you just know. Walk up to a BMW M5, Mercedes Benz AMG65 or similar class of vehicle and you feel it before you even touch the door. Years ago I owned an amazing Audi A6 Bi-Turbo and even before I drove the car, I knew. The designers did it right. Then as you slide into the driver's seat, that tingling sensation runs down your spine. You just know it will take months to wipe the smile off your face. Enter Real Environment Xtreme for FS2004. There are currently no other environmental products on the market which even come close to the level of quality and professionalism REX brings to FS2004. I highly recommend this product as it will give you breathtaking and realistic environments."

                "REX, in Latin, means king. I will happily call myself one of the subjects in REX's benevolent reign and if I were to meet you, my reader, I would look you in the eyes and tell you this is indubitably the best $40.00 you can spend on your hobby. I can think of no more fit comparison to describe this product. It is vast in its complexity and sublime in its versatility. The simulator will never be the same again. VFR Reviews is pleased to announce that REX 2.0 has earned the distinction of being the first product ever to be awarded the VFR Reviews' Blue Award."

                  "According to the developer REX is not just technically advanced but artistically advanced too. You know what, I believe them! At times I found the multitude of chromatic renditions to be quite beautiful and the clouds very impressive. It brings quite a smile to your face when you materialize at your chosen location, ready to fly, and after waiting a few minutes for the REX weather engine to do its thing, you find yourself confronted by rain, wind, and skies like you've never seen in FSX before."

                    IAN STEPHENS - FLY AWAY Simulations

                    "One of the most important aspects of using any flight simulator is always going to be the realism – if you can’t get the right kind of detail and atmosphere around your plane when you are in the air, there isn’t really much point in getting involved, is there? Thankfully, the introduction of the excellent REX Soft Clouds add-on for both FSX and Prepar3D is one of the most easy to use add-ons out there at the moment. It brings a variety of realistic soft cloud textures into the game, making the skies look far more realistic than they do with the original edition of any flight simulator out there."

                        "Sometimes when you see something, you know it will be great before you use it, and that is the feeling I had when I purchased REX! I am stunned by this product. It is a marvelous piece of programming that many graphical packages should aspire to. I feel it is the benchmark for which all graphics packages for FSX should be judged by. With REX Essentials on the radar things are only going to get better, and it will be a free upgrade to REX 2 costumers. The only phrases I can use to describe this product are suburb, amazing and out of this world."

                          "I have been flight simming for a great many years now and my interest has come and gone during that time. This past year saw me in one of those lull periods where my enthusiasm has been low. REX+ has reenergized my love for the sim. There is freshness and realism that the program brings that has allowed me to not only enjoy FSX but many of my previous add-ons, too. REX Game Studios has brought it and again earned the coveted Avsim Gold Star Award."

                            "I have absolutely no doubt that Real Environment Xtreme is the best addon for FSX for the money. You can purchase one airport addon that drastically improves that area, or even a mesh that improves that region… But I would recommend spending the same amount and drastically improve the entire world using Real Environment Xtreme."

                                This piece of software is a must if you want a stunning visual while flying day or night. It will bring a NEW dimension to flight sim and you will not believe it until you take off and see the 3D clouds, sunsets and the water effects on inland waters and ocean corral. It is a sin that this company didn't originally write FSX.

                                Gregorio McKoy

                                The graphics will blow your mind. I found myself just aimlessly flying at all times of the day in awe. Wow! Great job developers.

                                Neil G

                                The most extraordinarily beautiful and revolutionizing add-on that I've ever purchased. In short I want to say 'good work', because I am not one generally for writing in and giving praise but I think you guys have done a fantastic job.

                                William Vick

                                REX has truly has changed my flight sim experience. It would take me too long to describe all the things this program improves but let me say the clouds and water effects are amazing.

                                Ian Hirsti

                                If you like FSX then this is a must!!! I wont fly without REX turned off. Cloud formations are so real, and it's great to see the coral reefs in the oceans when you fly over them.

                                Anthony Yacono

                                This is bar none the best add-on product for FSX. It actually increased performance on my rig! The weather engine is very realistic. Clouds are gorgeous and sometimes downright scary in bad weather conditions.

                                Gary Johnson

                                Everybody involved in REX are the best of the best. No exceptions. The Real Environment Xtreme program took a LOT of time work and money to produce. Nothing will prepare you for the awesome change that REX performs to FSX. This is the best there is. If you have not bought this yet, your really blowing it big time. The best money you ever will spend on FSX. Just get it!

                                Charles Artis

                                This program makes your flight sim shine. Literaly. A very good buy.

                                Clement Wu

                                This is the best addon for FSX. I highly recommend it as the first addon that every flight simmer purchases. It covers so many concepts and these are visible every time you fly.

                                Johnny Rosario

                                There is no way I would take screenshots, or make a video without REX. Excellent addon, specially with Overdrive. Fair price for all you get, can't be beat. Lots of combinations in textures to suit your taste and computer specs. If you have a good one, you can't go wrong with the high HD settings.

                                C.W. Hardin

                                My last review for REX 2 was unable to communicate the great effects this product produces. The newer version is even better!! I would not have thought they could improve it too much but I stand corrected. Coming from tornado alley in the states it is great to be able to ask for a thunderstorm and have multiple choices from around the world!! A plane with good visibility in a thunderstorm at night has to be seen to be fully appreciated. I haven't checked out everything it offers but so far I am really impressed and can't wait to see what they come up with next. Keep up the great work REX!!

                                Craig Muncaster

                                One word amazing. At xmas I bought silly over the top pc. Now running 3 screen eyefinity. So decided get FSX doing some research to make it look better heard a lot about REX found it here. Great quick service. Set it up made custom set up. Took off from RAF Lossiemouth in Scotland in default FA/18 hornet in early morning sunrise. Everything set at max resolution set to 6028 x 1080 (for bezel correction). Result stunning before I even get to the sky the water looked like water but full afterburners on into cloud layer then breaking through to sunlight just stunning still got over 50 fps. This takes FSX to next level. MS might have stopped support but with add ons like this long live FSX!

                                Patrick Smith

                                What can you say about this masterpiece of software engineering! I was very happy with REX 2+Overdrive, but this has raised the bar on quality and excellence. The developers have made giant leaps forward in providing an immersive experience within FSX. Well done to Tim Fuchs and Co! Just to recap, simply excellent! If you were not an early buyer of REX 2.0, spend a few dollars and get this addon. I just wait with baited breath as to what the future of this software will hold. Mega thanks and awesome recognition to all involved! Shame the ratings only go to GOOD, and not EXCELLENT.

                                Kai Prout

                                Well I am going to keep this short, sweet, and simple. THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST THING YOU COULD EVER DO TO YOUR FLIGHTSIM....

                                By far the best add-on software for FSX. Well worth the money.

                                Anthony Radford

                                THE best software i have ever put into flight sim, buy it ,its fab the weather is amazing looks real ,if you have a bad day at work load this with a good sunset and relax

                                Woon-kyung Seo

                                I have purchased a number of graphics enhancements for FSX over the years, and most make an improvement. However, REX almost totally remakes FSX into something new. Seeing a realistic sky for the first time in all my years of flight simming blew me away. I have uninstalled XGraphics and now let REX do all of the special effects. The first thing I noticed was how nice it was to see the clouds reaching all of the way to the horizon instead of that stupid adjustable circle of clouds that surrounds your plane otherwise. There are also no more of those constant redraws of the clouds. I give REX 2 w/Overdrive 5 stars, 2 thumbs up and a laurel and hearty handshake (stole that from the movie Blazing Saddles).

                                Christine Connor

                                This add on is amazing and is certainly worth the money. REX 2.0 completely changes the way you look at FSX and has no effect on fps. A month after purchasing this product I wonder what I would do with out REX. This is definitely a must have for any flight Sim enthusiast whether your'e experienced or just a beginner and effectively changes Flight Simulator 10 into Flight Simulator 10.9!!!

                                Jayson Ng

                                Well worth the price. Now I get real overcast skies. My FSX visuals have really transformed.

                                Ian Harrison

                                I bought and installed the FS9 and FSX versions on the same day. Both sims now look absolutely, unbelievably good. The sky and water colours together with the textures installed by REX are just straight from the real world. Installation was effortless in both sims. FSX performance seems to be unaffected; no loss of FPS or major stutters. If you're thinking of REX; buy it. You won't look back.

                                Andrew Myles

                                All I have to say is WOW!.... go buy this. It will transform your sim flying forever.

                                Cameron Nelson

                                I bought REXv2 the day it came out I think. I run a very high end machine. I downloaded it, ran the installer, configured the correct paths (all default) ,set it to all HIGHEST settings, ran the back-up, restarted my machine for the heck of it, started the program, pressed "Fly Now", waited for it to load, (about 6 minutes) , and haven't stopped screenshoting ever since! AMAZING!! You better get an HD monitor and vidio card.

                                Alaa Riad

                                I have been seeing so many shots on the net for people publishing their REX work, was very impressed but hesitant, I finally had the guts to move on and purchase it, only two days back, was so excited, it took ages to download, and considerable time to install, had couple of program errors, then magic began, it is simply unbelievable and a really step ahead in graphics and capabilities, now you can design your world, to me it is like a dream come true. Note: you have to read the short manual before you start.

                                Mike Culver

                                Great Product!! No complaints. Very realistic weather and water.

                                Pekka Kallasaari

                                One of the best addons for FSX. Excellent frame rates and jaw dropping eye candy combined!

                                Gregorio McKoy

                                Sit back and enjoy!!! The graphics will blow your mind. It's like purchasing a new flight sim .. Mind you, you have to have a pretty good multi-quad core machine, but I found myself just aimlessly flying at all times of the day in awe. Wow! Great job developers... I can't wait for the SP2 release.

                                Ryan Wong-Chung

                                I bumped into this add on via it's an epic experience you can't miss. REX truly changes the FSX experience. Real time weather, high res clouds, gorgeous water effect(tropical reefs ), high altitude smoke effects(contrails), grass textures etc. sP1 is being released soon adding better visuals and some fixes. And the fs9 version is being released soon. rex fsx=A+

                                Tristan Ridge

                                This has to be the best FSX addon out there for clouds, wave animation, taxiway and runway textures! It is very user friendly and i have absolutely no idea how I flew without it!! 5 out of 5 defiantly!!

                                Christopher Duncan

                                REX has transformed my FSX experience. The incredible realism of the cloud formations and water effects has to be seen to believe. I thought Active Sky and Xgraphics were good until now. I particulary like the tropical "haze" effect towards the horizon when flying out of my old favourite location of St Maarten in the Netherlands Antilles. My FPS have actually improved with the 4096 cloud resolution and DXT5 setting recommended to start with. Read the manual carefully when installing and make sure to adjust the _Protocol_, _Address_, and _Port_ elements of the xml file with the same fields set in the SimConnect.cfg file. In 25 years of flight simming REX is probably the best add on I have purchased.

                                Chip Mills

                                There are two things that I have purchased to date that have truly exponentialy increased the emersion of Microsofts Flight Simulator the first is the trackIR, and the second is Real Environment Xtreme. This is the best software add on for FSX. Absolutely worth every penny of the price.

                                Simon Schrooder

                                A must have for every serious computer pilot. The most fun I have ever had with FSX is with this add-on.

                                Michael Brehmer

                                I like REX, because it's the first addon, witch shows clouds as in nature. It's beautiful to fly in the sky with all the clouds and the sun reflecting seawater under.

                                Bin Xi

                                This is one of the most worthy addon I'v ever bought. galaxy of options. chose your own theme and even adjust the hue of those colorful textures. the shallow water looks like real when I compare real world video. and Frame rate friendly. it will be a landmark of FS afer some bugs are resolved.

                                Anuwat Lehmann

                                REX is wonderful for adding more beauty to FSX (Especially using with REX Soft Cloud). But the weather engine can't even compare to Active Sky Next. The interface is also easy to use. However for the price I spend, I think it's worth to own this product anyway.

                                Ryan Sutton

                                This is a great addition to FSX. I definitely recommend it.

                                Jordan Pickus

                                Honestly, Makes things so much more realistic. I haven't figured out everything about this product yet but it is worth it so far. You can create random weather scenarios at any airport your currently at. Makes for a cool realistic flying experience.

                                Fernando Gutierrez

                                Excellent application. Very accurate real time weather injection. I am using ForeFight connected with FSX. The real weather reported by ForeFlight match by 95% FXS injected weather. Some minor issues when updating weather for couple seconds, wind aloft direction change, causing to overspeed, if you are pushing close to speed limit. And the, must buy.

                                David Zabel

                                This product adds so much realism to the weather that you won't know how you flew without it. Great product and definitely a must have for any simmer.

                                Richard Gallatin

                                This addon is a MUST for those looking to add realism to their flights! The weather is vastly more accurate than what FSX can provide anymore and the changes in the weather are much smoother, I no longer go from completely overcast to cloudless skies, there is a transition. The ground textures have been upgraded too, the trees, hills, mountains and terrain all look more realistic. I did NOT see a FPS drop after installing this.

                                Dmytro Ivanov

                                This product is simply a must have, the interface is very user friendly, I don't know how I flew without it.

                                finn mccaffrey

                                Great so realistic a must buy!

                                edmond kelley

                                I purchased this product and it is great. It makes FSX As Real As it Get's, and more. It worth the price.

                                Ryan Kurtz

                                I really enjoy this software! It took a little getting use to with programming everything in with textures to my liking, but once that was all configured I realized I will never go back to anything stock from FSX. Do prepared to wait a little while when you turn on REX, it takes a while to load, and the installation times for change of textures can take a while as well. So make sure you really like your texture configurations before you install them in to your FSX folder which REX makes very easy to do. Overall, the graphics are astoundingly beautiful, the sunsets and sunrises are just like the real thing, skies are crisp clean, clouds are detailed, and I can't wait to find new things within it in the future.

                                There are so many different settings that you can play around with. I am sure that this software will make every user of it very happy with the end results, that he/she has created. After you have selected what you want to do, and has created the necessary configuration available get in your a/c, taxi out and get airborne, you will enjoy every minute of it. Read the MANUAL when in doubt, and don't blame the creators of the software.

                                This product adds the extra realism that hard core simmers demand. I couldn't believe how real the clouds and sky textures looked, as well as the runways and water textures. It's a very nice addition to the flight simulator and easy to create your own environment.

                                eric bensinger

                                It is just amazing. First it was easy to install and setup to the settings you want. Second is that if you make FSX videos or just fly for fun, it makes it much more realistic. Last is that it doesn't have that much of a FPS drop (maybe 2 to 5 FPS drop). Great Add on!

                                An awesome addon that completely changes FSX.Changes were really easy to notice and its easy for use. I recommend it to all customers.

                                Raymer Rentschler

                                Excellent product, this will change FSX completly.

                                Brandon James

                                I love it! I got it by download and have a backup on the way. I must say its made this sim look like you are flying around in real life. It's a must have! I did the download on my WiFi hotspot as I don't have high speed. I started it at 4:30AM and it got done at around 9:30PM. That was at 145kb's.. so that was why I had to wait so long. It was on my end not the server as I said it was only a WiFi hotspot that's on a 3G network. I would get it on CD just so if the download did not work you get it in the mail. If you are into FSX you need this!! GET IT!!

                                Grant Savage

                                This is a must have add-on for any flight simulator enthusiast. I highly recommend getting the CD's though as the download would not work for me. Back to REX. The replacement cloud, sky, water, and airport environment textures truly enhance the realism of flight simulation. REX also has an incredible well programmed weather engine that makes weather transitions silky smooth. The number of options that REX offers is outstanding. There are thousands of options to choose from. In short, REX is a must have for any FSX user looking to buy their first payware add-on.

                                Tyler Sass

                                Absolutely the Best addon you coud ever get for FSX. REX completely transforms FSX and makes it look like it's not 4 years old. You shouldn't notice any performance issues as long as you us the same textures resolutions as you were using on default FSX. The HD clouds ad so much. I do recomend that you get the hard disk unless you have a good WiFi connection.

                                Tony Ngu

                                A must have along with FSX. Clouds and Textures are amazing!!! I know installing or downloading can be a pain but it is worth every minute and every penny!!!

                                Alessandro Tognaccini

                                Just buy it! You wont regret a dollar spent! Its just incredible how much it enhances the Flight Sim experience. The sunrise and sundown sky textures are just gorgeous and that enhanced virtual sun feels like it can blind someone if they look at it too much. PMDG has these widow shades that pull over the glass, and to be honest I have to use them when flying in the direction of the sunrise to reduce the intensity. GET IT GET IT GET IT!!!!!

                                It is my favorite addon for my FSX before and now for Prepar3D. Only awesome... my youtube videos use only REX environment ;) Best product and best support team. Thanks, MrJ

                                Romchic Guga

                                Say the best ever tasted (veru much so). Hadn't even the slightest trouble with weather engine (posted above came in misunderstanding). Surely is the preferable from anything of that type. I gave my five cause not that I can think of other engines would really make sense.

                                REX is a must have,it will enhance your simulator in an amazing way. go ahead BUY it now

                                David Walton

                                This is an absolutely must have addon for FSX, I use the FSX Steam Edition and it works great with it! REX is a very good company who really put the time and effort into giving us a very well done product.

                                David Papis

                                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.

                                Jerrod Corey

                                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.

                                Mark Carey

                                Awesome, the sky & clouds look so real!"

                                Liam Bailey

                                "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!"

                                Anthony Neave

                                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."

                                Hank D.C.

                                "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!"

                                Luke Collins

                                "By far the best add-on software for FSX. Well worth the money."

                                gauthier Malou

                                Every time i switched to detailed clouds in prepar3d, i lost half my fps. With Rex4 , not only my detailed clouds are smooth as soap, but they look awesome. my best buy ever.

                                Nathaniel Scott

                                This has been one of the best add-ons to FSX and P3D. I continue to be impressed with this product (having had version 2, 3 and now 4). Customer service is awesome, and so is support. They care about the product AND the customer. This improves the way weather looks and immerses you deeper into the simulation. I say this is a must-have! Cheers!

                                Dayan Jeremiah

                                Absolutely love it! Makes everything look so much more realistic.

                                Anthin Delahunt

                                The program is absolutely brilliant. Goes hand in hand with ORBX. If I could give this a hundred star rating I would.

                                peter robinson

                                Superb bloody fantastic!!!!!!.....amazing buy it.think my wife will file for divorce on this!!!!!!!!!! always on flight sim. good installation easy to set up,wow what difference to fs experience.

                                Mario Lobo

                                Awesome product, downloaded and installed without any issues. Installed the all custom REX 4 Texture Direct HD and what a transformation. The effects are just mind blowing! Please do read the Manual and set the weather settings correctly in FSX and then get ready for a F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S. Experience! :-) Great Job REX Team Ps. May I add that support is excellent via their REX Support forum.

                                Rocky Melendez

                                There so many different sky layouts for dawn, day, dusk. All beautifully made in HD. Tons and tons of different clouds for low level and high level all in HD also. So many options when it comes to the airport, runway, taxi, runaway and taxi lights, parking, taxi signs, different thunder effects, thunder and wind sounds, sun and lens glare, grass and concrete, asphalt options, just so many options. like literall id say about 200 options in total for everything you could think of at the airport and the sky. i highly recommend it this with Rex Soft Clouds. Oh trust me, youll never fly again without this.

                                Michael Langer

                                It looks amazing! Very good to have it!

                                david talarico

                                Best out there by far in every way possible worth every penny over any others. This has to be the single best upgrade to Flight sim X there is. Works great is everything it says it is and much more. I would highly recommend it to anyone no matter the computer you use it will run it.

                                Dmytro Ivanov

                                Awesome, the sky & clouds look so real!"

                                Patrick Samford

                                This is by far one of the must haves for your flight sim. I have had it for about a month now and it is awesome! You will see the sky as if you where truly in the sky in your own plane. The sounds of the rain and the lightning and thunder just jump out at you especially in surround sound. I say buy this for your next upgrade you will not regret.

                                Shanard Letang

                                This will make FSX look more realistic. Just as it states it will do.

                                Mike Polera

                                This texture set is awesome! It adds great realism to your sim experience and really allows you to customize the visuals you want. Very easy UI and super easy to make changes on the go if desired. Well worth the $.

                                Benjamin Smith

                                Great Texture Pack! Everyone who is a serious simmer should get it!

                                Jason Meadows

                                This addon is amazing really transforms your simulator into reality. I installed this after already having REX installed on my system and now could never go back to the default FSX textures. MUST HAVE.

                                matt huetsch

                                It truly does change your flight simulator experience!

                                Michael Suetsugu

                                Extremely realistic! The clouds are fantastic and look very real. The sky colors are very real and and a huge improvement from the regular FSX default sky colors. Wave animations and the water textures make you always want to fly over the water. This pack even improved the default airports with very high quality taxiway and runway textures and markings. Overall a fantastic product!

                                David Chin

                                One of the best addons ever, it makes your airport and clouds look EXTREMELY realistic! Worth the money and frame rate friendly.

                                Josiah Macdonald

                                This is one of the best add-ons ever. I love every bit of it and more thanks Team.

                                Breunis Verburgt

                                This is the first add-on I would HIGHLY recommend for your fsx.. for $34.95, I think it is well worth the money! You won't be disappointed!!

                                Jose Estrada

                                $34.95 dollars, really worth the price if your looking for more realism. Rex really enhances your fsx to better standards of realism. The sky, water, clouds, runways, and taxiways look much more realistic! This product is a must have if your looking for more realism and hey! worth every penny! So i am giving this product a great A+.

                                What more can be said about this product that has not been said before one word FANTASTIC.

                                Jesse Casserly

                                The textures are absolutely incredible!

                                Picked this up yesterday and its awesome. It makes inserting textures into fsx a fast and easy process and is well worth the price.

                                Seth gadd

                                AMAZING! Comes with SO many customizations.

                                Money well spent ! Works very good with my system. Running windows 7. Textures are outstanding.

                                alan martin

                                Its hard to say as you can see reviews al 5 stars all the way just brings so much weather reality into fsx just keeps getting better and the great features of the program you can tailor to your likeness as well. Just awesome. I played the thunderstorm sounds and the bass sound I can feel the rumble under my feet even the roommate at the other end of the mobile come running in thinking it was real all to funny. Again awesome program.

                                Richard Herring

                                Didn't affect my frame rate at all. And the cloud detail as well as sky coloring is beautiful.

                                Charlie McHugh

                                I received the REX 4 - Texture for Christmas. I have used it for about 2 hours. When I got it I thought it was a better way to see the textures on the ground. I figured you would load it and you would have an improved texture when you were looking at the ground as you were flying. What surprised me was all the options you have to pick textures. It breaks down clouds into sections and you pick which you like or which you would like to use in a flight you planned. I was overwhelmed with all the choices you have. You can even pick out the sound for Thunder. I am impress with this add-on and it was more then I thought it would be.

                                William Schofield

                                I have had some time to spend with this program now and I am amazed. It is simple to change to whatever textures your heart desires, and go straight to FSX from REX4's control panel. I will never look at FSX the same again.

                                nathan young

                                Absolutely beautiful, one of the best upgrades to FSX I've purchased.

                                Michael Fuhs

                                Love it! It has indeed changed my little FSX- world so very much to the better in many respects. Took some time to download and install though, but it´s been worth waiting, trust me!

                                Aaqib Afzal

                                Been along time user and fan of REX products and their textures are unbeatable to date, will not change and will always be a supportive REX Users

                                Richard Rice

                                Very much impressed/satisfied with this product. I highly recommend it.

                                Keino Furbert-Jacobs

                                When P3D first brought / introduced us to dynamic clouds, I was instantly grieved. Now that it has been achieved for FSX thru/by REX, I've been rolling cumulus-ly with amazement!!! You will not be disappointed ...not one iota of gleam will escape your very next flight in FSX. Thank you REX and continue to bring on the Realism...Wooooww!!! All I can say is that I'm fully enjoying this...What are you doing?

                                Thomas Riley

                                From what I notice this looks great! Was exactly what i saw when looking out my office window. On the climb it is nice to see a variant of soft clouds in the mix.

                                Rich Sennett

                                What I am seeing is a a beautiful balance between soft and the HD famous REX clouds, they look great and feel more real than than anything I have tried. I wont have to keep looking for cloudscapes now.

                                James Holcomb

                                Bottomline. If you want the best soft type clouds for your flightsim, then look no further than REX Soft Clouds. These will blow your mind how real they look, especially when flying through them. There just isn't anything better, period!

                                Robert Pomerleau

                                I am a P3D v2.4 user and the smile on my face will take time to go away. These clouds hug mountains and hills like no other. What a brilliant addition to the REX cloud family.

                                Ales Kubovic

                                Yes, I waited a long time for soft clouds. In the real world, not all clouds sharp. I am glad they are finally available."

                                James Hunyar

                                For $10 USD, it's really hard to go wrong with anything REX puts out. I cannot comment on the P3D performance, but in FSX this is an excellent overhaul to default in a lightweight package. Very happy with it so far!

                                Murray Dreyer

                                Just bought and installed this. I already had REX TD4 and was wondering if this product would be of any benefit - it is! The low / mid level clouds look amazing. Awesome add-on at a great price.


                                I bought soft clouds and I am amazed!!!!!!!!!!!!! Simply stunning for such a small price it is well worth it!!!! Mist, fog low visibility settings are fantastic!! I fly VFR in real life, this is one fantastic product my friends. Complements the REX update superbly."

                                Dirk Henke

                                Now you can really fly through clouds and fog!

                                John Lovell

                                Well, this was a fantastic surprise...and for 10 bucks, was one too hard to resist. Installation went well... was instantly wowed just how much these add to the realism in flying through real clouds. A job well done guys! How could I ever doubt you anyhow!

                                Brandon Mckay

                                REX. Need I say More. They are masters at their craft. These clouds make you really feel like you are flying. I thought the clouds in Over drive were good, these blow their own previous textures out of the water."

                                I immediately noted the improvement to the 'look' of the clouds During my many flights I experienced some excellent ground fog effects, and cloud layers I flew through had a real 'fluffy' feel. As you fly through various cloud conditions you will begin to notice the softening of the clouds/effects you had not seen before. For me, this has proved to be one of the best purchases I have made thus far... Incredible! REX have ensured, that if you have a top-end or towards the bottom end of performance computer, you will still see a marked difference in the cloud environment. Now that is truly amazing, and REX rightly deserves a positive virtual 'thumbs-up' for this broad compatibility. In my experience REX enhancements have not had any diverse negative frame rate reduction hits, such is the quality of the products I possess on my computer, Soft Clouds, no frame hit just massively enhanced clouds effects. A MUST!

                                Soft Clouds is an excellent alternative to the HD cloud options out there. I use them alongside REX Essentials for cirrus, sky, and airport textures. Whilst the base REX clouds might look better in screenshots, I find the soft clouds look best while actually flying, and are very lifelike. With no negative performance impact and a very low asking price, there's no reason not to give these a try. Highly recommended!

                                Very, very nice!. It fulfills REX Plus w/Overdrive splendidly. Any "Flightsimmer" needs these products for a full virtual reality. Bravo REX team!

                                REX Plus w/Overdrive with Soft Clouds is very wonderful. So softly and fluffy, worth to pay!

                                I used this with FSX:SE and boy, did this product, along with ActiveSky Next render the most accurate weather simulation you'll ever see. Crank up the number cloud layers and say goodbye to "checkerboard-like" cloudy and overcast conditions. Comes with a neat manager as well. If you have REX Texture Direct as well, you can download the combined manager/installer.

                                Rex Soft Clouds is an awesome addition to an awesome series of sky enhancements! It adds an effect that has been missing from flightsim for quite a while. Highly recommended.

                                Fine product for a fine price. REX for FS2004 may potentially change your flightsimming experience forever. As one who has been continually tweaking FS2004 since the early days when it first came out, and trying to get the old classic sim to be as close as possible to a real-life flight experience, REX certainly came as a welcoming surprise and have taken my FS2004 to new levels. This package comes bundled with loads of textures that the user can customize to his or her heart's desire. It comes with new sky colors, water textures and waves, airport environments such as taxiways and runways, runway lights and strobe lights, and perhaps most dazzling of all, high-definition clouds. In addition to textures, this package also comes bundled with its own weather engine and flight planner. Furthermore, the developers are still improving this product, so there should be more to come in the future. So, if you are like me who have stuck with FS2004 after all these years, I would highly recommend this product for enthusiasts who are interested in improving the visual quality of their sim. Being once a pilot who have flown in the skies in real life, I would say that this product definitely deserves its title of "real environment," for it certainly brings back the breathtaking feel of the environment several thousands of feet in the air.

                                This has to be the best addon our there for clouds, water, taxiway and runway textures! Very user-friendly..

                                John Godfrey

                                Like everyone else has said, just stop thinking of getting this and get it already, they are still supporting it, and it really transforms FS9 into FSX almost, amazing attention to detail, I wish all payware addons were like this!"

                                Thomas Emms

                                Fantastic product! One of the best flight simulator addons out there, Adds a whole new dimension to FS2004 and the realism improves alot! I truly reccomend this product to anybody! Overall 5/5."

                                Firstly I want to say I do not normally write reviews about anything,because I am a cranky git....But having just installed REX into my Flight Sim I am really really happy and smiling broadly...It is like having a new sim,after the disappointment of not being able to run FSX (due to my computer specs) REX makes up for this more than enough...Buy it! it transforms a dull sim into a "As Real As It Gets" for sure..."

                                David Jule

                                This addon is a definate buy. With this and a good texture pack for your ground, you could have the perfect flight sim. No frame loss unless you have a lot of clouds. dont think twice about this one.

                                This product is without a doubt worth purchasing!

                                Richard Todd

                                Having had time recently to do some flying around the USA, especially as it is now winter, my FS has been truly transformed. Even at ground level at the airport the winter haze gives a brilliant realistic feeling. When up several thousand feet the cloud formations and realism are beyond anything I used before. Previously I could see repeat cloud patterns with other programmes, whereas with REX every cloud looks completely different. This has now brought a huge smile to my face every time I fly!

                                Simon Schrooder

                                A must have for every serious computer pilot. The most fun I have ever had is with this add-on.

                                REX is a great product and I can't understand, how I enjoyed flying without it!

                                Philip Wilson

                                There are currently no other environmental products on the market which even come close to the level of quality and professionalism REX brings. I highly recommend this product as it will give you breathtaking and realistic environments.

                                Christopher Duncan

                                In 25 years of flight simming REX is probably the best add-on I have purchased.

                                I just want to congratulate and thank the folks at REX Simulations for creating such an awesome product, REX4 Weather Architect. It has helped me create great IFR weather. With this I can simply create ANY weather at ANY location. The best part is that even though there was such dense cloud and fog depiction, the frame rates kept steady at 30 FPS in spite of flying the heavy jetliners like PMDG. I never saw this with any other product. The flight was smooth with no hiccups throughout the experience.

                                LT. Hendrix

                                This new program from REX is the most addicting product yet. The amount of detail crammed into such an intuitive user interface is astounding. Never before has creating custom weather for flight sim been more easy and fun. I would have gladly paid double the asking price .... Thanks REX!


                                It’s easy to use! It’s particular useful for loading weather where there are no weather stations.


                                It’s quite a nice product! You will notice the frame rates are good. If you loaded up this kind of weather in other weather engines I’m not so sure we would experience the types of frame rates as this. There are some nice cloud formations! It’s an interesting product and does what it says and offers the ability to get quite interesting weather patterns without hurting your frame rates. This could be for a lot of people.

                                As owner of OST Air Virtual, this is my ultimate desire in years. A great stable online FS-community where 'everyone' can fly online with the support and the power of a reliable and experienced engine.

                                First off, I love Latitude. It has brought a whole new dimension into my flight sim experience. Being a real-world pilot I love the precision it demands even on routine flights. I see Latitude coupled with SimAir as the new evolution of flight sim and simulated airline business. I love the ratings part of the program. I love the scoring part of the program. I love the radar part of the program. I love the operations part of the program. Quick and to the point. I am addicted to this program and I'm looking forward to see how it matures in the future. I think this will be a tremendous aid for those learning how to fly in the real world and a big plus for their desktop training/experience. I see desktop simming becoming better and Latitude is helping in that direction! Great job to all!!

                                A great Addon for FSX and P3D which will greatly enhance your simming experience! It's like unlocking another dimension to your flights that you never knew existed. Score: 9.2 out of 10 - Must Have For Flight Simmers.

                                It's a very good add-on for FSX. Now i'm wating for REX Simair.

                                After 60 days playing FSX with Latitude I can say it's a great addon to have. It improved my skills a lot and helped me know my planes better. You have access to the manual before buying and you should read it. Had all my questions answered at support forum. I'm having a lot of fun and would buy it again. Cheers from Brazil

                                Very sweet little "black box" type program! Works like a charm! This is a MUST to all flight simmers who want to improve their skills! Highly recommend!

                                If you want to add some entertainment value, give this thing a try. Breathes new life into the sim. Seriously. Like having a checkride from an instructor. Fly consistent and with control and you know. Don't? And you definitely will know. I like how it promotes you from Student through to Commercial pilot as you get better at flying. Very neat dynamic. You can't just yank and bank all the way to your destination and then drill it in nose first and slam the brakes on. It uses the inertial data from the simulator to give you the "passengers" view of your skills. Your progress is tracked on a server along with hundreds of other real time pilots out there.
