REX Essential Plus 及びその OverDrive向けに、サービスパック3がリリースされた。
STARTUP/WEATHER DATA DOWNLOAD
REX now downloads the latest weather conditions when a user submits a request or starts the weather engine. Since the REX servers download the weather 6x an hour from our sources, our customers are sure to receive the latest most up-to-date weather information. This protocol is quick and ensures a fast and fluid response time.
– No more weather download required on initial startup or during the operation of REX.
– Weather data downloads occur immediately when a request is submitted to search weather, the mapping system, or via the weather engine.
WEATHER ENGINE OPTIMIZATION
We’ve updated the entire weather engine process to reduce it’s overall footprint on the host processor as well as made it more reliable. We’ve accomplished this by utilizing a separate library.
FLIGHT PLANNER LINKING
In addition to the changes to the weather engine, we’re now able to provide a direct link from our cutting edge flight planning tools to the latest PMDG 777 winds aloft import feature.
Weather GRID Interpolation Settings – Expands the area of reporting weather points within FSX/P3D over a greater given area of 20×20 latitude/longitude blocks, and allows REX to update the weather across the world more accurately than any software on the market. These specific points utilize the latest GRIB data.
Weather Surface Region – Expanded from 10×10 latitude/longitude to 15×15 latitude/longitude – this is applicable to both Standard and WXPLUS mode of weather injection, which allows for a much larger weather radius.
Weather Refresh Rate – The timer set to change the surrounding of the initial weather grid as the aircraft changes direction and altitude. Thus, dramatic cloud popping, and dynamic weather changes are minimized.
WEATHER MAPPING SYSTEM
– New map interface that is locally driven and not dependent on outsourced mapping service.
– Weather data is immediate from REX EDGE weather servers.
– More pinpoint location of storm cells, turbulence, and icing.
– Weather Load Menu Item
– Weather Search Menu Item
– Top Most Menu Item
– New embedded mapping system
In regards to the ever growing platform of Prepar3D, we have now updated our texture library with compatible textures for wave animations and sun.
We have also included a fix for the static wave animation inherent in the latest Prepar3D v.2.4 build!
