Product information "REX 5 - Sky Force 3D"

Sky Force 3D is a complete overhaul of the weather and environment experience while bringing dimension to FSX, FSX: Steam and Prepar3D:

  • New 3D Cloud Models and Structures Created for Real-World Cloud Classification
  • Dynamic Synchronization
  • New Cloud SDK (no more upside-down clouds or repeating cloud bottoms)
  • Natural Photo-Based Environment Textures
  • New Weather Engine
  • Integrated Flight Center
  • Interactive Mapping System
  • Built-in PTA Integration
  • Innovative Sky and Sun Atmospherics
  • New Lightning Effects
  • New HD Environment Sound Effects
  • and Much More…


New 3D Cloud Models and Cloud Structures - The First In-Flight Sim:

  • New 3D cloud model structures and SDK, patterned after real-world cloud classifications with their own specifications, positions and heights
  • Each of the 3000+ 3D cloud model structures were developed in comparison to their real-world counterpart
  • NEW clouds types, including; altocumulus, stratocumulus, humilis, mediocris, congestus, tower cumulus, cumulonimbus calvus, supercell and rainshaft, tornado, stratus, nimbostratus, altostratus and cirrus class
  • Real-world cloud model system including (but not limited to) cloud streets, super cells, wall clouds, funnel, shelf, rain shaft and tornadoes
  • Restructured cloud SDK for true formation realism
  • Single-session cloud texture variation, allowing more variety during a flight session, increasing the overall realism
  • The new cloud system models storm structures reaching 70,000 feet
  • Included are wall and shelf clouds, and in some circumstances, these will include funnel clouds and tornadoes of various shapes and sizes

Real-Time Weather Engine:

  • Intelligent weather engine that harnesses over 70,000 points of weather data globally
  • Reads and interprets live model data to sample the atmosphere and therefore will sync the appropriate clouds structures

NEW Photo-Based Natural Environment Textures and Innovative Sky Atmospheric Effects:

  • Fully compatible with DX9, DX10 and DX11
  • Tailored to low AND high-end systems
  • New natural, photo-based environment textures while exploiting the power of PTA integration
  • New techniques create a smoother, realistic and natural sky color blending at dawn and dusk as well as newly improved visibility and fog
  • With VBlend and Vaporous Skies, we have achieved more realistic horizontal and vertical day, dawn and dusk fog generation and sky visibility blending
  • The sun atmospheric rendering effects are very cinematic and will be noticeable through the virtual cockpit
  • Lightning Fast Texture Installation
  • Full 10-Day Cycle Sky Texture Sets: When the Sky Force 3D 10-Day Cycle is installed, the simulator will dynamically load a different sky color transition from sunrise through sunset each day

PTA Presets Built-In:

  • Is included in Sky Force 3D were specifically designed for use with the sky textures and atmospheric effects in Sky Force 3D
  • Is required for use with our presets

Flight Center:

  • No-nonsense tool that is geared for those who want to view their flight plans and experience true weather along a route
  • Supports the standard XML based plan file from FSX and Prepar3D
  • Export support for PFPX

Interactive Mapping System:
Integrated interactive mapping system provides 6 weather overlays to allow you to visually sample the weather prior to departure:

  • Precipitation Overlay – You can view all the locations of precipitation, our precipitation does not look like speckled paint spats, but true radar echoes
  • Winds Overlay – 9 levels of wind from 3,000 to 53,000 feet can be viewed in this overlay so that you can make smarter decisions for better fuel consumption
  • Temps Overlay – 9 levels of temperatures from 3,000 to 53,000 feet help you avoid potential areas and levels of icing and rime
  • Pireps Overlay – This overlay lets you read position and data from real-life pilots across the world
  • Sigmets Overlay – This overlay provides not only US-based but global sigmet data in real-time
  • Metar Overlay – Utilizing that fact that our servers download the local weather data 6 times an hour gives you the most accurate view of the local weather
  • Flight Plan Overlay – If you import a flight plan into the Sky Force Flight Center, then a visual view of the flight plan is available
  • Major Airport Overlay – This map overlay provides a vital point of reference to help you as you fly
  • Major Road Overlay – To give more detail and help especially to the pilots who like to fly VFR, we provide a significant road overlay to follow
  • Zoom Feature – Allows you to zoom into the local level and zoom out to the regional level
  • Precip Opacity – Allows you to reduce the prominence of the precipitation echoes on the various map for simple reading
