  3. Awkward request to ORBX marketing team.

    This question is asked every time we have a sale, but sorry the answer is a polite no. The purpose of a sale is to be a surprise. We have become predictable with our two annual sales so decided to mix things up a bit.

  5. Small update for P3Dv4 users of Global Base and openLC Europe is available via FTXC3. All this addresses is a fix to polyline autogen building annotations. For those using FSX or P3D versions 1 to 3, you can simply over-ride the update notification by copying the attached version text files to the ORBX\User Documents\Versions folder. Goes without saying, only copy these over if you have the actual product installed FTX_OLC_EU.TXT FTX_GLOBAL_BASE_PACK.txt
  6. What is AFS2

  7. As the title suggests, update for the AFS2 versions for LOWI and KCGX is now available via FTXC. This fixes the shimmering building issue.
  8. Hi all, we are pleased to announce the release of FTX openLC South America! https://orbxdirect.com/product/openlc-sa Also available is a Freeware mesh addon to complement OLC SA - openLC Mesh South America https://orbxdirect.com/product/olcmesh-sa For those that do not have any third party mesh products, this is recommended as well. Continuing on with our successful openLC series, openLC South America covers an area over 17 million square kilometres with FTX Global custom textures and textures unique to openLC. FTXG openLC replaces the default landclass layer with higher detailed and a better variety of land types. This in turn creates a more varied and accurate terrain with FSX or P3D. It has been specifically designed to work with both FTX Global Base and FTX Global Vector as part of the total simulator overhaul. 17 million km sq of new landclass Superb new textures Greatly reduced texture repetition! Full five seasons support 3D night lighting Made for FTX Global and Vector Includes new city night lighting Stunning photoreal volcanoes Additional vector landclass data The Americas now complete! Please note that this product requires FTX Global Base to be installed first for correct operation. Orbx strongly recommends FTX Global Vector to be installed. All featured screenshots on the product page as well as preview shots depict FTX Vector as well as TreesHD.

  10. Orbx Bilbao

    PeopleFlow = Animated people ObjectFlow = Conditional display of scenery objects (which may include People, Creature, Nature etc Flow objects)
  11. Welcome to Basque country! Bilbao is the largest city in the Biscay province and the Basque Country as a whole, beautifully located at the northern Spanish coastline. The Basque Country may often be overlooked by the sun seekers travelling to Spain, due to it’s often unpredictable rainy weather. On the other hand, it has proven to be a popular destination for food junkies, hikers and surfers as it possesses incredible nature, great waves and world famous food. Bilbao Airport is an important hub for the northern region and serves destinations all across Europe. Beautifully located in close proximity to the city area, the airport offers fascinating approaches through the mountain range and via the ocean, crossing over the harbour and other parts of the city on final descent. With the nickname ”La Paloma” (The dove), the main terminal has become famous for it’s unique architecture. Designed by Santiago Calatrava and opened in 2000, it serves over 4 million people a year. Our scenery contains the whole city of Bilbao with important buildings added, and the whole harbour upgraded and of course the airport in it’s full glory. We sincerely hope you will enjoy Bilbao! Super-detailed rendition of LEBB High-resolution custom ground textures The whole city of Bilbao is included High-resolution mesh for the whole city Animated traffic & PeopleFlow Moving jetways Dynamic Lighting for P3Dv4 Whole harbour area is upgraded with custom buildings and objects 30 & 60cm/px groundscenery for the whole city area Advanced AO-baking and night lighting techniques By Marcus Nyberg & Philip Schall https://orbxdirect.com/product/lebb ...and ready for P3Dv4 - apart from its 3 windsocks
  12. Disappearing topics -- X3 - Moved? Nope!

    I moved the battle of flight sims discussion as I felt it going nowhere and wasn't a constructive discussion. We already deleted comments due to personal insults and it started to touch on the EULA aspects. Rather than see it deteriorate, I moved it.
  13. A gateway to the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Kern Valley is in the perfect location to make a stop on your journey north from the Los Angeles Basin, and is also just a stone’s throw away from ORBX’s other airfields designed for FTX NA Southern California. This is the second creation by Jordan Gough and we hope you enjoy it! https://orbxdirect.com/product/l05 Over 250 square kilometers of crisp 80cm imagery Sharp 30cm imagery used around the airport Accurate representation of Kern Valley Airport using real on site photos High resolution airport buildings and runways Animated trees around the airport that have almost zero impact on performance TextureFlow optimised = great FPS Amazing mountainous rural location Just a stones throw away from ORBX's other much loved SCA airports The second release by developer Jordan Gough Requires the ORBX FTX NA Southern California region
  14. I think a few of you have been waiting for this one... This is a new version (1.52) that has a new version of the config tool, no other changes are with this update. Please note: P3Dv3/4 addons that use the the addon.xml method will not be picked up by the auto configuration AEC funtion. Considering the low uptake of addons using this method we decided to release Vector now. If an airport requires AEC to be disabled and it uses the addon.xml method, you can manually disable it. We are working on changes for the config tool to cater for these in due course.
