I use REX essentials (latest version)

2 things happen when flight simming becomes a serious hobby

1. never ever land at a default airport again and 2. never fly without REX. Sure REX will have performance penalties but its usually only every 15mins when injecting weather that its really noticeable.

Honestly, REX is without a doubt a must-have piece of software. I think 98% of all of us here use it. It does for the sky and water what ORBX does for the land and terrain... And the two work beautifully together.

If you use the highest settings in REX (super high resolution clouds) then you might see a small performance hit, but you can set REX to use lower resolution clouds to help fix that... sure the Hi-Def clouds look awesome, but even at the lowest resolution, REX clouds are a hundred times better than default FSX.

the REX weather engine also is hugely better than the FSX built in "real world" weather...

Just get it... You'll not regret it! And like has already been said... you'll never fly without it again.

As others have said, REX is absolutely Essential (pun intended). I would even go as far as saying it was up there with TrackIR.

Cool. I would keep an eye out for Essential SP1 and Essential Overdrive as they should be released fairly soon.

Dear God I hope so, As much as I love my REX + OD, I honestly cannot wait for Ess OD.
