  1. Volanta doesn't inject traffic into the sim yet. It's designed to be used in conjunction with VATSIM, IVAO, PilotEdge instead of being a network of its own. We'll look into this. IVAO doesn't have easily accessible data available for their FIR/UIR boundaries (although we could pull this from WebEye). We'll get in touch with them. At the moment, flights are automatically ended shortly after you turn the engines off. I believe this would be more common than leaving the engines on when people are doing multiple hops? Either way, we can look into a better way to handl
  2. Very soon. We're inviting quite a few people every day, so it won't be long until everyone has access. The Navigraph integration allows you to see fixes, navaids, airways, etc in our map. You will still need the Navigraph Charts app to view the airport and procedure charts
  3. Hi all, We're reading all of the feedback. We've been busy in development We have a few users in the beta - they're already keeping us quite busy with feedback. More randomly selected users are added every few days. Once we're back in the office next year, we'll be adding far more people. Not at this stage, but it's something we'll consider after release. We already record airspeed, ambient wind, pitch, bank, heading and G force. Just not all are shown in the UI yet, but will note that down.
  4. Hi, Would you mind telling us what problems you're having with Orbx Central? We have tried our best to make it as simple as possible. We have a detailed user guide that may help too.
  5. Hi Pete, This is not released yet. We should definitely make that error message more descriptive! Expect to see REX Weather Force within the next few days.
  6. Hi, In Orbx Central, you can see the version number in the column on the right: It's worth noting that we can only update 3rd party products when they send us the files. Usually our turnaround time once we have the files is less than 48 hours, depending on complexity.
  7. Hi J├╝rgen, Please make a ticket for this: https://support.orbxdirect.com
  8. Good point - we actually do store this data (and had it shown on the aircraft list in our original announcement). We'll make sure to add that back. You can also see all of your aircraft locations on the map after clicking on Aircraft:
  9. Hi all, Your registrations have all been received - we're still working to get Volanta to you very soon. We've implemented some of the top requested features and simulators (including one mentioned a few posts above mine )
  10. I would recommend SimStarter too. If anyone still wants FSXGo, I've attached it here. FTXGo1016.exe
  11. There is already a poll that was created by another forum member just a few days ago:
  12. Please double check the email you're entering. The message shown to the user is the same whether the email exists in our system or not ("An e-mail has been sent with further instructions"). The email you're using for your forum account doesn't exist in our store database, so please try any other email addresses you use.
  13. Hi John, Can you please attach your central.log file? It will help us solve your issue:
  14. We've submitted the files to Microsoft. Keep in mind it's currently 10:46pm on a Sunday night in Seattle
  15. Hi Kodiak, No need to keep those FTX Central 3 backups. Orbx Central cannot read the format that FTX Central 3 used. Hope that helps!
  16. Hi Vic, Weather presets for Microsoft Flight Simulator are loaded from your appdata folders. If you'd like to install them elsewhere, that would be better directed toward Asobo/MS. In any case, the total size of this product is 9.23 MB (as a comparison, the OrbxDirect homepage itself is 15.8 MB).
  17. Hi Sun Man, Once products are listed on this page, they are usually less than a week away https://orbxdirect.com/coming-soon
  18. Hi Rob, Unfortunately not, I'm unable to reproduce this on my PC. Slow loading times when Central is loading will be investigated. When sending the central.log, could you please also send me your UserCfg.opt from various points (when Central works, and when it doesn't work) for comparison?
  19. Hi Rob, When you next experience the issue, can you please send: %appdata%\Orbx\Central\central.log %localappdata%\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\UserCfg.opt Central only does those steps that Jon mentioned in his post above (as well as checking that the directories exist). If there is an issue, I'm guessing something is wrong with the UserCfg.opt file.
  20. Hi John, Can you try closing Central, deleting your log file (Central will rebuild it automatically), then starting Central again. This will result in a much smaller log file size that you should be able to upload here
  21. Hey Scott, You can see all of the currently active bundles on this page: https://orbxdirect.com/bundles. You're right that we're missing a TrueEarth US P3D bundle though. I'll mention that to the team
