  1. Where do you propose we insert new scenery library entries? At the top is the most reasonable option. Considering thousands of people use the software, we need to make it easy for everyone to use (including people who may not be skilled on a computer).
  2. @Geezer, FTX Central only changes the position of Orbx scenery. It may give the illusion of moving other scenery if you are manually moving your Orbx scenery outside of FTX Central. For a permanent solution to this, please see dominique's post above mine.
  3. Hi Mike, Thanks for your feature request! More filtering options for the website are in the works. Although we don't have a way to show unowned products in FTX Central 3, the new Orbx Central will have this option
  4. All products are 33% off, excluding releases after April 1st 2019 Get in quick! This sale ends on the 1st of July 2019 at 00:01 UTC Looking for a European vacation? Tough decision? Try a tough approach instead! Check out all our discounted products at orbxdirect.com
  5. Hi Pilot, Sorry about that, we had a little configuration error. Please go to LEAS in FTX Central and click "verify files". It shouldn't need to download anything, but that will just make sure all the jetway files are in the right place!
  6. It will change the autogen buildings for most of the regions too. From the initial post (emphasis mine):
  7. Hi everyone, We are extremely excited to announce that TrueEarth US Washington for X-Plane 11 is now available for purchase via OrbxDirect! TrueEarth US Washington is truly a ground-breaking product; as our first next-generation region for the United States, this package brings to life the heart of the Pacific Northwest in complete photorealistic detail. Expanding on the successes of our TrueEarth Great Britain and TrueEarth Netherlands products, Washington brings the latest scenery technology to one our most-requested locations. From the rugged isolation of the Cascade Mountains to the hustle of downtown Seattle; from the arid beauty of the Inland Empire to the temperate serenity of the coastal maritimes, TrueEarth US Washington encapsulates some of the most dramatic scenery brought to X-Plane 11. Clocking in at an enormous 92,000 square miles (our largest yet!), TrueEarth Washington includes a host of new features and content. From the 1200+ custom-modeled PBR landmarks, through to the millions of accurately-placed buildings and trees, this scenery faithfully recreates one of the true homes of global aviation. As well as rugged natural beauty, an enormous amount of detail can be found within the metropolises of Seattle, Spokane, Victoria, Yakima and plenty more. Whether it's getting lost amongst the valleys of the Olympics in your Cub, enjoying the Seattle approach view from the deck of your 737, or keeping to schedule on your San Juan mail run, TrueEarth Washington is truly the most immersive flying experience brought to your simulator! Features: 91,875 square miles (237,956 km²) of hand-corrected, crisp, color-matched aerial imagery New PBR autogen technology developed for X-Plane 11, allowing thousands of realistic looking PNW-themed houses and buildings to be placed at a realistic height with minimal impact on performance 1,174 custom-modeled 3D POIs! Over 500 million trees placed correctly based on detailed land use and high-resolution height data 42.6 million buildings at their correct height and location where data is available Major Cityscapes for Seattle, Bellevue, Victoria, Tacoma and significant buildings added to Everett, Olympia, Spokane, Kennewick and Yakima VFR landmarks such as masts, wind farms, churches, power-lines, and lighthouses are all accurately placed. Hand-placed and custom modelled 3D landmarks throughout the scenery such as bridges, skyscrapers, stadiums, cranes, tanks, piers farms, and monuments – this is especially noticeable in city areas Sharp and detailed Ultra-HD 10-meter mesh brings out stunning detail in natural features such as mountains, coastlines and valleys Superb watermasking along the entire coastline and most rivers and lakes Accurate road and rail network blended into the aerial imagery with moving traffic Beautiful color-balanced summer imagery with exquisite night-lighting TrueEarth US Washington is now available via FTX Central for $69.95 AUD (approx. US$49.70 / €44.25 / £38.20). Please note this does not include the optional HD pack which will be released in subsequent weeks. The initial download size of TE US Washginton is 39GB, the installation uses at least twice that and the installed product requires 207GB For installation guidance, please visit this forum post: Linux and macOS users please download the public beta of Orbx Central to install TrueEarth US Washington. If you experience any issues, please post in our Orbx Central Open Beta forum. Download for macOS Download for Linux Orbx Central for Windows will be coming very soon.
  8. It will be released via FTX Central 3 for Windows users. macOS/Linux users will be able to use Orbx Central instead of the cross-platform zips. The page to refresh is this one https://orbxdirect.com/product/us-washington-xp11
  9. Thanks everyone! Having a great time here in Orlando
  10. Hi all, We fixed the server hiccup that was resulting in the white pages on the website - sorry about that. From our monitoring, all our download servers are nominal. Please let us know if there are any issues
  11. Happy birthday, Misha! Now we don't need to smuggle drinks to you over here in the US
  12. It definitely won't be released before Australia v2. We're still aiming to get a pubic release before Washington (even if it's only an open beta).
  13. Jarrad's "Captain's Corner" presentation - a behind-the-scenes look at how to make Orbx scenery
  14. Hi Mariano, This is a great idea. We have plans for some automation of our compatibility with 3rd party airports, but unfortunately that didn't make it into this release.
