Milviz and REX Simulations partnered up to solve the difficult challenges related to a fully functional weather radar: combining a modernized airborne radar with sophisticated digital signal processing, resulting in a superior multi-functional hazardous weather detection and avoidance system.
Compatible with: FSX SP2, FSX Acceleration, FSX:Steam Edition, Prepar3d Versions 2, 3 and 4 (Latest release, with all hotfixes)
The WX Advantage Radar is modeled after the Bendix RDR-4B system. State-of-the-art processing enables the WX Advantage system to provide higher standards of performance and reliability than have ever been achieved before. We have achieved accurate placement of precipitation along the azimuth of the radar beam within its cone as you fly. You'll experience a realism never before seen in a radar gauge. As you fly in and out of precipitation it will match the display - accurately.
The WX Advantage Radar features a non-fading, high resolution color display of precipitation data at selectable ranges up to 160 nautical miles (NM). The system continuously measures four levels of precipitation: green for light precipitation, yellow for moderate, red for heavy, and magenta for severe precipitation and turbulence.
The system utilzes a high resolution 3D precipitation density map, which takes advantage of video hardware acceleration for greater performance and level of detail.
The 3D version of the WX Advantage Radar is freely available to all 3rd-party developers who wish to integrate the gauge within their aircraft. We make it easy for 3rd-party developers to modify the color, texture, text, and the model of the gauge to fit within their paradigm and methodology.
Not only is the WX Advantage Radar compatible with FSX, FSX:Steam and Prepar3D, it is also compatible with ALL payware and freeware weather engines as well as payware and freeware aircraft! Each license of the WX Advantage Radar allows activation for all three flight simulators.
Easily install, edit or remove the gauge for any default or 3rd-party aircraft. The tool includes four different types of gauges: dark and clean, dark with dirt, light and clean, light with dirt. Select which version best represents the cockpit you are flying in as well as easily adjust the aspect ratio, size, and location of the gauge.
You will receive realistic and accurately placed radar echoes that precisely match depicted atmospheric conditions. Never experience precipitation falling outside indicated radar echoes. The radar also includes a nifty wet runway feature. Though there may be radar echoes nearby, the runways near precipitation will appear as if rain had just fallen.
The WX Advantage Radar System includes full TILT functions! The system will analyze the complete scale of storm structures in real-time and accurately represents the effect of radar attenuation when larger more dense cells are in front of other cells – causing a rain shadow effect.
Includes a full active transmitter/receiver range up to 160NM.
The built-in Auto Update technology allows REX Simulations to quickly, effectively and effortlessly deliver periodic and crucial updates to our customers.
• The WX Advantage Radar System is a unique, advanced weather radar system that can be used with ANY 3rd-party weather engine, freeware weather engine, as well as the built-in weather of the flight simulator.
