    Hi all, Over the past few months, our team has worked hard to refine the experience when using Orbx Central. We’ve made a lot of improvements to make your life easier. A part of this process has been listening to feedback from customers and staff alike. As our ecosystem expands with 3rd Party Partners such as Milviz, Parallel 42, Pilot Plus and more, we need to ensure our client software continues to evolve to meet their needs. Because of this, we embarked on a journey to further modernise Central’s UI and UX. Refreshed User Interface The first thing you’ll notice is our new top-level navigation. The “Store” tab will show all products whether you own them or not. “Partners” only shows products from our 3rd Party Partners. “Discover” shows our new map page. Finally, “My Products” shows just the products that you own. The top-level navigation also contains our new global search. This search can take you to any product, or focus the product on the “Discover” page. Hint: press Ctrl/Cmd + F to focus on the search box. Additionally, you can now search for airports that are within other products. For example, if you search for ESSD, you’ll see that comes as a part of the ESNQ Kiruna Airport triple pack. Moving to the left hand side of Central, we’ve rethought how a product’s state should be displayed. The download queue has been vastly improved from previous versions. You will not only show products that are currently in the queue, it will also show products that have pending updates. You can click on the download icon to begin the update process for those. Discover One of our most anticipated features is a way to view Orbx products on a map. Products and regions that you own are shown with a purple highlight. Products that have a discount applied will show in red. Clicking on a product will show many more details about a product, including bonus airports, helipads, POIs, etc. Clicking on a region will show all of the POIs and airports within it. We hope you enjoy all of these changes to Central - be sure to let us know if there are other improvements you’d like to see. Orbx Central 4.1 is in Fastlane now. You can opt-in to Fastlane in the Central settings (under "My Account").

    Announcing Pacific Northwest Ferries for Prepar3D v4 Have you ever wanted to ride one of the classic Washington State Ferries? Now you can --- with Orbx Bob that is. Or you can watch the BC Ferries come and go at Swartz Bay and Tsawwassen. Pacific Northwest Ferries greatly improves the default AI ship and ferry traffic in Puget Sound and Southern British Columbia with authentic models and giving them realistic places to dock. Larry’s longstanding community scenery project, PNW Ferries and Terminals has made the cut and is now Orbx Freeware. In order to do so it has undergone a major upgrade. Many new terminals have been added in Puget Sound, all quite detailed, including adjacent marinas. Terminal areas have been enlarged, annotated with autogen and have seasonal PR and night lighting. Shorelines, roads and road traffic have been adjusted where appropriate. All the large terminal models have been rebuilt and new ones added. Port Townsend is now a mini Townscape which includes 2 large marinas and an adjacent pulp mill. A number of POIs have been added or fixed up: Point Wilson lighthouse, Mukilteo lighthouse, Smith Island, DeltaPort near Tsawwassen, Entrance Island with lighthouse and helipad and more. Lighthouses are based on authentic models with custom light effects. All terminals integrate with the Orbx airports and seaplane bases in the area; CAE3, CAC8, KORS, KFHR, and 74S. The large marina and ferry terminal at Point Defiance serves as a point of interest for Orbx KTIW as you approach from the north. It’s worth a closer look too. There is a lot to explore; 47 terminal areas plus other features of interest. Besides the WSF and BC AI ferries, there are a number of ancillary AI boats; tugs, a couple of cargo ships, cruise ships and a large tanker all quite detailed. And of course there is the usual Extras folder. Among other things it has a pilotable version of the WSF ferry MV Kaleetan as well as a small xml add-on that will enable all new Orbx wave effects. The entire installation is managed by Orbx Central so no more fiddling around having to disable default traffic files. The new wave effects have been anticipated for some time and we have chosen this method of distribution to let you try them now if you wish rather than wait an unknown period of time for technical issues to be solved. As was the case for CAE3, Pacific Northwest Ferries is built for Prepar3D v4. It will be offered as Orbx Freeware via Orbx Central. Orbx Pacific Northwest is required. https://orbxdirect.com/product/pnw And now some screenshots from Iain: More screenshots from Larry

    Sorry Iain, I couldn't resist. I did make a proper landing, I'll post it later. Directly above the scenic KTTS landing strip. Well, we need to bank to come around for a landing. "Wait, what! We ain't back in space ya know!" "Hey, I miss it already." "Let's buzz the assembly building!" "Hi guys!" "Now to land." Well, I did "land" but I had a "yard sale"

    P3D Orbx's new Leeds and TrueEarth. Made a quick round robin, the ILS works perfectly. Remember, this is only a simulator so no real people got sick. SODE works flawlessly.

    I'd forgotten how much detail there is around Melbourne. I was checking something out at Essendon (YMEN) so decided to do a bit of stooging around: P3Dv4.5, ORBX AU v2 and TomatoShade (not that you would notice). Normal service (back to the green stuff) will be resumed A.S.A.P. Adam.

    Finally had a chance to look at it, and did it with the FlyJSim 727. All I can say is this has to be Orbx's finest work to date. You have to see it to believe it, it's beautiful. I miss working on and flying in these guys. The water is impeccable. All I did was an out and back. All hand flown.

    Some views of a new texture in progress for the TA-4J from Dino. Unfortunately, due to limitations of the paintkit, it is not allow to reproduce a texture completely similar to that of the real model. Richard

    Today I flew from LCY for real and thought it would be fun to redo the take off in XP with the Orbx EGLC scenery. So I put some shots from both my real camera and the sim to show you the comparison. And as a bonus track, the video of the real take off taken from my seat, enjoy! And now the video of the take off and some nice views of London
