  1. At Orbx, we are thrilled by the upcoming launch of Microsoft Flight Simulator and would now like to share more information on our initial launch plans – we know many of you have been eager to hear them.

  2. Hi all, As hinted last week, here is an update regarding our plans with openLC Asia. From the very beginning, Orbx's vision has been to cover the globe with updated textures and accurate landclass but that's obviously a monumental task, especially in areas for which we don't already have FTX Regions. Our experience with South America and Africa showed that to create a complete and accurate product we needed to invest a significant amount of time and effort. If anything, the great landscape diversity across Asia makes this an even more challenging product, especially in the

  4. Hi all Just by way of intro, I have been Orbx’s CEO since September 2019, and I am based in Australia. I have not actively participated in the forums so far, limiting myself to reading the diverse and eclectic views of simmers and industry players, but the recent announcement of MS Flight Simulator launch calls for a view on where Orbx sits in all this, so I am breaking the ice. Firstly, at Orbx we are thrilled to see that the new MS Flight Simulator will launch in August. Like the rest of the community, we are very impressed with what we have seen so far in Microsoft's

  5. Orbx is proud to return to our roots with our very first Australian product for Microsoft Flight Simulator - Cityscape Sydney! We know that many of you have been keenly awaiting news of our first homegrown project for the new sim, and as such we have to kick things off in style. Over nine months in development, Cityscape Sydney is an enormous project that pushes the boundaries of what is possible with the current MSFS SDK. Acclaimed developer Frank Schnibben (Cityscape Honolulu, Melbourne Cityscape for AUv2) has brought to life Australia's largest city with his debut MSFS scenery

  6. We would like to provide you with an update on the recently released Microsoft World Update: United Kingdom, and how it affects our Orbx Landmarks London City Pack product. The Microsoft update includes all new photogrammetry for central London, along with several dozen new custom models of landmarks, like London Eye and Buckingham Palace. What does that mean for our customers that have purchased and installed the Orbx Landmarks London City Pack product? In its current form, Landmarks London conflicts with the Microsoft update due to overlapping landmark bu

  7. Hi everyone, We realise we have not announced any product roadmap for a while, mostly due to putting efforts on planning around the release of Microsoft Flight Simulator and understanding what was possible. After a few months, and a few more products, we feel now it’s a good time to draw up a list of products which we are planning to release in the next little while. Now - we know in flight sim (and in life!) things can change fast, so we reserve the right to modify the list and the sequence, so best to keep checking our “coming soon” page to be up to date with what is

  8. Happy New Year everyone! I wanted to give you an update on what has been happening @ Orbx and a bit of an outlook for the next little while. First up, the production team, under Ed’s leadership, has been super busy in the past few months, releasing a number of awesome products, including some of my favourites like Cityscape Sydney, Graz, Newcastle, the more recent Canary Islands for X-Plane from our internal teams (thanks also to Frank, Tony and Holger), and a number of highly detailed and charming airports from our indies, like Burbank, Malmö, Olbia, Göteborg. So many

  9. Hi all, starting today we're releasing updates for our FTX Regions that primarily deal with the larger airports in each region. The underlying issue is that the default airports in Prepar3D v5 have received new generic terminal buildings and layout updates. Our airport enhancements, at these larger airports, incorporated some of the v4 versions of these features, which then ended up missing or misaligned in P3D v5. These small service packs make the necessary adjustments. Also, some airports within the FTX Regions have had their ICAO changed and those will be updated as

  12. Hello, one can read many complaints that there is no improvement, it is worse, it doesn't work etc etc. The simple answer is indeed to read the instructions for installing the new version and then follow all of them. Please read through all of the following text before starting the process. Regardless of where Orbx products or addon aircraft are installed, the P3D installer will leave them alone because it can only uninstall files that it installed in the first place. 1. using the Windows control panel, uninstall the P3D v5 client and when asked if y

Thanks for your kind thoughts lads, it gave me a big boost to know that there are those our there that care Here is a quick rundown on my situation. My illness is not really showing much improvement, at least it was not until yesterday when the visiting nurse set my up a telephone meeting with a doctor, who set me up with new medication. The outcome is an improvement on my ability to move around without needing to fall over due shortage of breath, and this has allowed me to set targets for

Well as things stand the medication is working it will be adjusted higher soon, I went to a cardiac unit yesterday and had an angiogram that was interesting seeing inside my heart on a big screen. Afterwards the heart consultant that did this came and seen me and explained they have booked me in for a pacemaker with defibrillator to be fitted to keep my heart in its proper rhythm so it wont go like the clappers anymore, So with this and the medication things are looking better than they were.

  15. As the dust continues to settle, we would like to take the time to provide you with a little update. Microsoft Flight Simulator represents a new era in flight simming with an entirely new game engine and we at Orbx are looking forward to supporting it with new and improved addons. We have been involved with many of our other 3rd party colleagues, and given our feedback to Asobo on the SDK and will continue to do that, so we all have a feature rich toolset to help us deliver more great content.

  21. We want to let you know that we are aware of an issue in the Landmarks London City Pack for Microsoft Flight Simulator. This issue affects a small number of the 400+ landmarks available, where they do not match up with the quality of those already in-sim. A fix this is already in development, and will be made available very soon through Orbx Central, and - as soon as it is approved - in the Microsoft Flight Simulator in-sim Marketplace. We will inform you when this update is available on the Orbx Facebook and Twitter channels. Thanks all for y

  23. Global Vector, being a culmination of years of R&D and GIS data development, was originally released for Flight Simulator X and Prepar3D in 2013 and has now been made avaiable for P3Dv5. This version specifically for P3Dv5 is a derivative of the original Vector release. Prepar3D v5 itself contains a completely new build of the default landscape and airports, the first time this has happened since the release of its predecessor, FSX. However, while Vector uses the same Open Street Map database, it’s features are more configurable (via the control panel) and uses custom road and

  25. Hi all, small update and new previews. Development is taking longer than anticipated as the P3Dv5 variant is needing a whole lot more work in terms of exclusion of secondary and tertiary roads. Without these exclusions, we are seeing a mass of minor roads cutting through our landscape textures which does not do it any justice. This is quite pronounced on the Indian subcontinent. We are also ensuring that it will work with the Vector product being present or not so that is also increasing the workload. Nonetheless, Eugene is practically on this 7 days a week and this is

Our next destination for the Landmarks takes us back to Australia with Brisbane, the most populated city and capital of the state of Queensland. The city was founded upon the traditional lands of the Jagera and Turrbal people on the banks of the Brisbane River which took it's name from Sir Thomas Brisbane, the governor of New South Wales at the time. With its laid-back charm, Brisbane is a cosmopolitan hub for arts, culture and a subtropical alfresco lifestyle. The city sees clear blue skies all ye

  36. Hello, like so many of the uninformed and imaginative claims made before the details were released, that one turned out to be not the case. That was why I put so much effort into keeping the invention and gossip out of the Orbx forums, with the intention that in these forums at least, customers could read just the facts released by the developers.
