Photo-Based Global Environment Texture Engine

We have elevated the visual experience through our new natural, photo-based environment texture technology while exploiting the power of PTA integration.

Nearly 20GB of NEW photo-based, natural environment textures packed in a 4.6GB download! Fully DX9, DX10 and DX11 compliant. Tailored to low AND high-end systems.

Complete cloud weather systems, natural sky environments authored from photographs captured worldwide, cinematic sun and atmospheric special effects, moon phases, lightning/thunderstorm special effects and environment sounds. Textures ranging from standard resolution to high-definition choices. Your choice!


Lightning Fast Texture Installation.

Installing textures into the simulator is lightning fast; in most instances this process takes less than 1 second to load a full suite of replacement textures! Ability to select and install textures individually and/or create custom 'themes' to install a full suite of textures instantly.

Default Prepar3D with REX Sky Force and ORBX Global and Vector. No shader enhancements installed. 

Elevating the Visual Experience.

Against all others, the difference is obvious!

VBlend - Vaporous Skies

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.

Sun & Atmospherics

The sun atmospheric rendering effects are extremely cinematic and will be noticeable through the virtual cockpit, creating even more realism. Sun atmospheric rendering coupled with HDR elements included for use in Prepar3D.

Sky Textures

Also included is our powerful 10-day cycle sky textures category. 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!


Single-Session Cloud Texture Variation.

Before Sky Force 3D, the simulator was limited to 8 textures linked to 3D cloud structures and representation. We have now quadrupled that amount to 32! This allows more variety during a flight session, increasing the overall realism. Cloud representation automatically updates without user interaction, making the flying experience more realistic and enjoyable.

True Cloud Thickness and Formation Realism.

Currently in the sim, even with costly similar after market products installed, it's not uncommon to notice upside down clouds in bizarre and unrealistic positions, cloud bases that are presented with repeating patterns and no true volumetric feel, in-appropriate texture types, all of which affect the overall realism in flight.


We even increased frame rates by eliminating unnecessary cloud sprites cutting down on GPU usage. The 3D Cloud structures are now correctly and accurately displayed, and detailed clouds will NEVER be represented upside down. 


We have also created the ominous cumulonimbus (thunderstorm) 3D cloud model system and representation as well as supporting textures. By examining real world weather conditions, we introduced the most feared of pilots and man - the super cell.


Our new cloud system models storm structures reaching 70,000 feet. We also modeled the base of our storm clouds and added rain shafts to calvus and incus cumulonimbus clouds of various intensities, adding to the realism. Also included are wall and shelf clouds, and in some circumstances these will include funnel clouds and tornadoes of various shapes and sizes.


Sky Force examines the metar report and syncs the newly formulated weather structures (3D cloud models) to match the upcoming weather for the current location while in-sim. Thus, cloud models actually match the weather conditions. The correct type of cumulus, stratus, nimbo-stratus, or cumulonimbus clouds will be selected based upon true real-time weather conditions.
