  1. There was a response to the post just one minute after your post here. Checking "advanced layering" should resolve most of the issues in Ed Patino's topic. As a general note to all, please do not "pile on" to another person's topic in the Central support forum. It makes it much harder for our team to track individual issues, and ultimately results in a longer time to issue resolution.
  2. Thanks both for your comments. I've passed them on to the team We will continue to add new features (e.g. an interactive map page) and improve stability. We have a lot of exciting ideas, and now have a solid base to work from.
  3. We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of the TrueEarth US Washington Enhancement Pack! TrueEarth US Washington uses efficient and optimised 512x512 resolution autogen, tree, 3D model and building facade textures for great performance on almost all mid-spec PCs. For more powerful PCs with GPUs with at least 11GB of VRAM, we recommend purchasing this optional Enhancement Pack for better fidelity and clarity, which is achieved by quardrupling the texture resolution to 1024x1024. This pack includes: 512 (SD) and 1024 (HD) texture options for all 3D models and autogen 2048 (UHD) textures for the TerraFlora trees Enhanced replacement 3D buildings for the Seattle urban airports, designed to enhance the XP11 Gateway airports A control panel so you can toggle between SD, HD and UHD textures BONUS WA56 Israel's Farm Private Strip (available for $0 via your OrbxDirect account, once you buy this pack) We recommend a PC with an i5/i7/i9 class CPU clocked to at least 4.6GHz or higher and a Nvidia 1080 class GPU with at least 11GB OF VRAM to use the 1024 and 2048 textures with good FPS. Below are some images of the Enhancement Pack in use around the Seattle area, showing the 1024 building textures and new airport buildings. Please note that ALL autogen for the entire state of Washington is improved with this pack, not just Seattle. The TE Washington Enhancement Pack is priced at a very reasonable AUD$14.95 (USD $10) and for that you get a free copy of WA56 Israel's Farm!* How to purchase: You can add it to your collection by visiting the product page: https://orbxdirect.com/product/us-washington-ep-xp11 or if you have payment details stored with Orbx Central, simply visit your TE Washington page and scroll down to see the Enhancement Pack add-on and choose to purchase from there. Simple! * Israel's Farm will be made available to your OrbxDirect account at $0 once you have purchased this WA Enhancement Pack
  4. This has been fixed now. The new limit is 500 characters.
  5. That's correct. It is no longer a game of chance where US gambling laws apply, it is now a game of skill. The question you are asked "How does Orbx Expand Your Horizons" will be judged (as you'll see in the updated Terms and Conditions). If you had made any purchases during the initial promotion, you would have received an email with a link where you can request a "no questions asked" refund for any of those products.
  6. Yes, YMML can be downloaded and installed with FTXC3. Unfortunately, the AU v2 update for this is only available via Orbx Central. I believe there is a thread on this forum somewhere with the patches, but I can't remember where exactly

  11. It's all about the location. We are delighted to announce that London City Airport is coming to life for Prepar3Dv4! Located a stone's throw away from Canary Wharf and the financial heart of the city, London City Airport is one of the last remaining true inner-city airfields. With one of the the most exciting approaches in Great Britain, flying into EGLC takes you over the iconic centre of downtown London. Servicing destinations across the UK, Europe, and until recently (and rather famously), New York via Shannon, the airfield hosts a bevy of airline and corporate types up to A318 in size. The short and narrow runway, coupled with the dramatic 5.5° approach and congested airspace, demands the complete attention of all pilots. So much so that all aircrew must be specially certified to fly in and out of the airport. From early proof-of-concept flights of Dash-7s landing on Heron Quays in the early 80s, the airport seen tremendous growth in recent years, with over 4 millions annual passengers passing through the terminal. The Turbulent team have brought something a little special for this project; London City is the first complete PBR airport for P3Dv4. Combining the latest P3D PBR technology, alongside other advanced features such as material scripting, EGLC brings this famous location to life in amazing detail. Perfect for a city infamous for it's weather, London City Airport features dynamic ground textures that react to rain and other adverse conditions. Designed to blend seamlessly with TrueEarth Great Britain South, the airport's coverage includes many important short-finals landmarks such as the Tate & Lyle Sugar Factory and ExCeL Exhibition centre. Of course, we have ensured that the product also works (though not seasonally blended) with Global Base or Orbx EU England (LC Region) if this better suits your simming experience. Be sure to keep an eye out for more screenshots and information of this exciting destination over the coming days! COVERAGE AT A GLANCE The first complete PBR airport for Prepar3Dv4! Immaculate HD textures throughout Dynamic PBR groundpoly that reacts to weather and time of day Incredibly detailed GSE and static aircraft Coverage area includes major landmarks on short finals 60cm PR colour-matched to TrueEarth Great Britain South Beautiful dynamic lighting Designed to blend best with TrueEarth Great Britain South, also works with Orbx Global Base or FTX England Developed by the Turbulent Design team
  12. Hi kjon, If you use Orbx Central, you can create "libraries" (aka "install locations") on as many drives as you like. Then, when you go to install Oregon, it will ask which drive you'd like to install it to: For example, in the picture above, I have created two libraries called "primary library" and "secondary library". These could be on different SSDs or HDDs, then Central will create links back into your X-Plane install for you. Or, if you click the "X-Plane 11 Folder", it will just be stored in your X-Plane Custom Scenery directory.
  13. All of our P3D products are still available on FTX Central (including new purchases of old products). The next two products, LYBE and EGLC, will also be available on FTX Central.
  14. Hi all, Orbx Central v4.0.6 was recently released with a plethora of improvements and bug fixes - including the ability to install scenery into Prepar3D's folder without using add-on packages. For more information and to see what we're still working on, please see the topic here:
  15. Many thanks for your kind comments, John We are working hard to resolve all of the issues people currently have with Orbx Central. I just posted a topic in the Orbx Central Support Forum detailing the changes we've just made to Central, and what we're still working on fixing:
