It is with great pleasure to announce that our server migration is complete!

Thank you to everyone and their patience as we went through this transition. Though at times painful, it has positioned REX better suited for the future.

Over the next few days, we will be optimizing the servers, so there may be a few brief outages, but we expect these to be very small and limited.

Again, thank you all for your patience during this time.

Sincerely,
The REX Information Technology Team

Dear REX Customer,

It has been one of our goals as a company to always look for ways to improve the way we offer our services. Over the past 6 months we have noticed a severe degradation in the present firm we used to host our data servers. This has led to numerous un-needed outages for our customers.

Therefore, we have started investigating a new hosting firm to house our data. We are excited to announce that we are reached the final stage of implementing a new level of service to you, our customer.

Starting at 00Z (5 PM PT/ 8 PM ET) today we will start the process of moving our data services over to our new data servers. However, consequently we will have a temporary, but extended outage with our servers during this time. Therefore, REX services will be down during this time. We expect to have all services back up and fully operational by 00Z (5 PM PT/ 8 PM ET) Sunday, May 2nd.

What services will be impacted by the outages:
– Weather data
– Community data
– Product registration
– Product verification

What products will be impacted by the outage:
– REX 6 Weather Force 2020
– REX 5 Environment Force
– REX 5 Sky Force 3D
– REX 5 Worldwide Airports HD
– REX 4 Texture Direct with Soft Clouds
– REX 4 Texture Direct – Steam Edition
– REX 4 Weather Architect
– WX Advantage Radar
– REX AXIS

We thank you for your patience through this transition, but we believe this will provide an improved experience for you as our customer as well as position REX in a place to expand to new horizons into the future.

Sincerely,

REX Simulations

REX Weather Force 2020 Reviews

SkyBlue Radio Review

The Nerd's impressions: REX Weather Force 2020 for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

"REX WeatherForce 2020 does exactly what it claims to do, very accurately and very well. In my opinion it should be the first add-on you get for MSFS."

Mutley's Hangar Review

Mutley's impressions: REX Weather Force 2020 for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

"Using Weather Force now seems natural and fits nicely into my flow to get airborne, it's as easy as: set up flight, start Weather Force, and fly!"

Virtual UA Review

"Overall, I am pleased with Weather Force and strongly recommend it for anyone trying to add realism. REX Game Studios is constantly updating Weather Force and adding new features such as historical weather data, presets, and more! Fantastic job REX!"

The most advanced weather radar, providing greater performance and reliability

REX Weather Force 2020 for Microsoft Flight Simulator. NOW AVAILABLE!

Weather Force is the NEW metar-based dynamic real-time weather engine for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

By utilizing inter-process communication with the simulator via fine granular control, you will experience automated, dynamic, and smooth weather transitions from real-world reporting metar stations.

Weather Force also includes a wide range of proprietary dynamic, changing (non-static) weather scenarios. These scenarios are unlike the static weather presets that ship with Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Future of REX Simulations and Microsoft Flight Simulator

Over the past several days, we have received many inquiries about the future of REX. The inquiries can be broken into two frequent questions: Will we continue to support our current products into the future? Will we be developing anything for the new simulator by Microsoft?

First, we will continue to support our current product line into the future. We are presently putting the finishing touches on products to be released for Prepar3D v5. We will continue to support FSX, FSX Steam, Prepar3D v1 – 5.

The second question is a little more complex to answer. Since June of 2019, after the first announcement of the new simulator, we at once reviewed our business plan and began to make changes internally to better position the company for the future. We are excited about the possibilities!
