About This Content

REX 4 Texture Direct Steam Edition just got enhanced with an additional 2GB of textures!

New: 3D Clouds including unique cloud base structures
New! Updated vibrant sky dawn, day, and dusk textures. Includes improved transitional algorithms during dawn and dusk times, properly balanced terrain light and shadow values.

New! Enhanced sun, corona, glow, flares, and special effects, giving the most realistic renditions of atmospheric conditions. Panning around your aircraft at different angles during beginning or end of day will yield just how dynamic these effects are. Rendered for DX9, DX10, and DX11

New! For the first ever, experience more realistic in-cloud, cloud to cloud, and cloud to ground lightning effects.
REX 4 Texture Direct Enhanced Edition is the latest version of the acclaimed Texture Direct series by flight sim veterans REX Simulations.

Give default airports in FSX: Steam Edition the pay ware-style treatment, from light to heavy use runways, taxiways and pavement markings! Highly detailed textures, including runway textured lighting encasements. 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.
