Conceptual Atmospherics

From intelligent synopsis to special atmospheric sound and visual effects, Texture Direct has it all!

Intelligent Synopsis

Select a desired ICAO code location, and Texture Direct will fetch the current METAR, generating a graphical synopsis based on results. It then generates texture selections based on this overview. Enjoy, save or share these conditions with the rest of the REX community via our cloud servers.

Fetch current Metar and match current weather conditions in FSX and Prepar3D

Environment Sound Effects

REX Simulations owns and operates a full-fledged recording studio and mastering facility using state-of-the-art equipment. This capability allows us to bring the sound experience to you! The dynamic sounds of rain, wind and thunder will blow you away.

Realistic Atmospheric Renditions

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!

Built-In Update

Built-in updates allows us to quickly and effortlessly deliver updates to you.

  • REX Texture Direct with Soft Clouds Enhanced Edition is an integrated global environment texture graphics utility, effects and sound add-on for Microsoft FSX, PREPAR3D and is DX9, DX10 and DX11 compliant.
  • Takes advantage of the core features of PREPAR3D while enhancing FSX to never before seen heights. Compiled from years of feedback from current REX users, all facets of the program include desired features, effects, sounds and textures.
  • Tailored to low and high-end systems, Texture Direct is comprised of over 16GB of content ranging from standard resolution to high-definition choices.
  • Current REX users will recognize the realism and quality synonymous with REX in an updated program including the popular REX Soft Clouds. Fidelity is much more inherent due to higher definition source material and yields a top quality end result, even at lower resolution settings.
  • Updated 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. You have the 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 REX Texture Direct. You may select weather scenarios or airport codes in order to have texture themes generated based upon weather conditions. There's also a facility that will auto-start simulator after texture injection.
  • You may easily switch between simulator preference (FSX, FSX Steam or Prepar3D) and is fully network capable.
  • Built-in system notification advising you of critical program feedback, update alerts or shared themes. Checking for updates is simple.
  • Powerful back end server technology is the foundation for the cloud based theme-controlled center within Texture Direct. Here you can take control of three types of theme based protocols:

    MY THEMES – Control the creation or auto-creation of texture based themes. You may save, install, delete or share these themes with fellow REX users around the world.

    COMMUNITY THEMES - Utilize a new system to rate themes, interacting with other users. Records are stored within 'banks' and may be accessed by simply navigating or filtering database results, as well as using a search utility.

    WEATHER THEMES – Select a desired ICAO code and Texture Direct will fetch the current METAR, which in turn generates a graphical synopsis based on the results. REX then generates textures based on this overview. Again, from here you may save or share these conditions with the rest of the REX user community via the cloud servers.
  • FEATURES:
    – Over 16,000 textures included (17GB).

    – Large, easy to read user-interface.

    – Lightning fast texture installation.

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.
