I guess it's best left to our customers to describe:

This has to be the best FSX addon out there for clouds, wave animation, taxiway and runway textures! It is very user friendly and i have absolutely no idea how I flew without it!! 5 out of 5 defiantly!!

REX has transformed my FSX experience. The incredible realism of the cloud formations and water effects has to be seen to believe. I thought Active Sky and Xgraphics were good until now. I particulary like the tropical "haze" effect towards the horizon when flying out of my old favourite location of St Maarten in the Netherlands Antilles. My FPS have actually improved with the 4096 cloud resolution and DXT5 setting recommended to start with. Read the manual carefully when installing and make sure to adjust the _Protocol_, _Address_, and _Port_ elements of the xml file with the same fields set in the SimConnect.cfg file. In 25 years of flight simming REX is probably the best add on I have purchased.

If you like FSX then this is a must!!!I wont fly without REX turned on.Cloud formations are so real,and its great to see the coral reefs in the oceans when you fly over them.

The program si awesome, weather & flight plan engine provides useful information. However, i have a very very good machine, and sometimes the FPS are not too "friendly". Note that iusually like to run things all MAXED out so maybe that might be one of the reasons. However, the graphix are amazing and it was worth the wait. Buy it is awesome !

There are two things that I have purchased to date that have truly exponentialy increased the emersion of Microsofts Flight Simulator the first is the trackIR, and the second is Real Environment Xtreme. This is the best software add on for FSX. Absolutely worth every penny of the price.

A must have for every serious computer pilot. The most fun I have ever had with FSX is with this add-on.

I like REX, because it's the first addon, witch shows clouds as in nature. It's beautiful to fly in the sky with all the clouds and the sun reflecting seawater under.

This is one of the most worthy addon I'v ever bought. galaxy of options. chose your own theme and even adjust the hue of those colorful textures. the shallow water looks like real when I compare real world video. and Frame rate friendly. it will be a landmark of FS afer some bugs are resolved.

This is by far the BEST program I have ever purchased for FSX!!!!

Buggy you say??? I do not think so-Every new program has a growing period. The folks at REX are the most responsive to questions an issues...

If you want to change your flying experience and make FSX an exciting hobby again invest a mere $40 and you will get the following.
You decide after you see my screen shots that come staright from the "V" key...

Downloading manually from the website IS buggy. I know from personal experience. Glad I purchased the DVD w/ it. I should be getting it in 2 weeks. As you can probably tell from the above, I'm not computer-savy! How do you set the frame rate per second on FSX? Also, is it me or are the graphics sharper on FS9 than FSX? Just thought I'd throw that one out there.
