  1. Seaside sun and Roman ruins! Pula is a spectacular location on the Adriatic sea, and a popular summer tourist destination. The area is served by Pula Airport, which is well equipped to handle aircraft up to the size of a 747, serving nearly 30 airlines during the summer,and is equally suitable for general aviation ops. We have created a very accurate rendition of the airport from on-site photography, as well as a unique multi-elevation airport model. The surroundings of the airport have been fully covered, and we have included a very detailed Pula city scape, complete with the Roman amphitheater, the docks, Kaštel castle, and much more. This is the second project from Rasha Tucakov, who has once again partnered with Misha Cajic for another beautiful coastal Balkan destination! Key Features Ground imagery at 60cm per pixel 50sq km+ of photoreal terrain Dynamic lighting in P3Dv4! Multi-elevation airport model Optimized for NGX and airliners Bonus airports - LDPM and LDPV Advanced AO and night rendering FULL Pula cityscape included Custom vegetation at airport Large area of custom LC & vector ONLY FTX Global required! By Rasha Tucakov and Misha Cajic https://orbxdirect.com/product/ldpl
  2. Graham Eccleston has updated the popular Australia & NZ AI Traffic for P3Dv4 and is now available for you. All included aircraft have been individually compiled for this new flight sim platform and have been specifically coded to fully utilise Dynamic Lighting and the new LUA coding system. Key features of this package All AI aircraft models compiled specifically for P3D V4. Dynamic lighting features added to all AI aircraft models. Steering nose wheels now added to most of the AI aircraft models. Conditional cabin lighting for small and medium GA aircraft managed by LUA scripting. Cabin lights for airliners on all the time. It was felt this was more realistic than having aircraft at the stand in darkness during normal operating periods. Appropriate HTAI Single Engine Cessna models now used in place of the one size fits all Cessna C177 from prior AI Traffic packages. Many thanks to Henry Tomkiewicz for this. Flaps now deploy for take off on all models. Sea plane bases with a limited number of AI aircraft are included for Rose Bay (YRSB) Palm Beach (YPMB) and Cabarita Lake (YBCL). I will attempt to expand this in a future update. An optional ATC Sound file is included with additional call signs, aircraft types and airports not included in the default ATC sound file. https://orbxdirect.com/product/aitraffic-aunz-p3dv4

  10. After many months the DVD Crossgrade service will be available as of 1 October 2017. Development of the backend for this has taken longer than anticipated as we focused on other priorities such as improvements to FTXC3 , infrastructure changes as well as ObjectFlow development for P3Dv4. Regardless, we thank you for your patience and understanding. What is a Crossgrade licence? You may recall that we first introduced the Crossgrade license which was available from The FlightSim Store. The license allowed customers to purchase a Crossgrade of their DVD to a digital version. When we were still producing DVDs, they were made for FSX (not the Steam edition) and in some later batches, P3Dv1. The Crossgrade gave these customers access to what was then "triple installers" - FSX,P3Dv1 & P3Dv2. Those customers now have access to FSX, FSX:SE and P3D versions 1 to 3 either through FSS (if they have not transferred over to OrbxDirect) or in OrbxDirect. Note that customers still have access to updates for their DVDs here. How much does it cost? The cost of the Crossgrade is $3.99 AUD per DVD. As it was with FSS, the cost of the license is to recover administration, fees and bandwidth expenses. No discounts will apply to the license transfer. How does it work? It is a fairly simple process. You purchase the required amount of licenses, submit proof of purchase and if approved by our staff, the product(s) will be added into your OrbxDirect account. Depending on the volume of requests we anticipate the turnaround time to be 24-48 hours from when proof of purchase has been submitted but please allow up to 5 business days for it to be reviewed. What do I need? To support your request for the Crossgrade you will need proof of purchase of an eligible DVD that was purchased from an Authorised Reseller. The list of eligible DVDs and resellers are at the bottom of this post. Proof of purchase will need to be a receipt or invoice that clearly indicates the product name, price and date of purchase. We will not accept photos of DVD cases. Please ensure that when purchasing these licenses that you have proper proof of purchase from the list of resellers provided. We reserve the right to have the final determination on eligibility for the Crossgrade license and will refund rejected submissions. Guide to DVD Crossgrade From your Account screen, access the DVD Crossgrade License Manger page by clicking the green DVD Crossgrade button. Clicking on the green Purchase license button will start the transaction Select the required number of licenses and then "Pay with Card" to finalise the transaction. Once you have purchased the licenses you will then need to "Activate a product..." Select from the drop down list the DVD you wish to transfer. Note: this list will only show eligible DVDs for those products not already in your account. Attach your proof of purchase by using the "Choose file" option. This can be in the form of an image or PDF of your receipt/invoice. Once attached you will then "Submit Evidence". Your license requests are now in a "Pending" stage whilst our staff review the proof of purchase. Once approved the product will automatically added to your OrbxDirect account. If rejected, you will receive a message as to why and will have another opportunity to resubmit evidence. In the event that eligibility cannot be verified, you will be refunded the license transfer cost. Your list of Crossgrade licenses are displayed here as well.

  23. Hi all, We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of the ObjectFlow 2 Open Beta. During the open beta, ObjectFlow 2 will be distributed via Fastlane.

You do not need to download any additional programs to access Fastlane. Just opt-in from the Fastlane page on the website. Any open beta updates will be delivered via FTX Central v3. FTX Central updates will be more frequent, so you'll get new features faster. However, you may also experience more bugs. ObjectFlow 2 is only used in Prepar3D v4. FSX, FSX-SE and P3Dv1-3 will continue to use ObjectFlow 1. If you find an issue with ObjectFlow 2, please post it in the ObjectFlow 2 Open Beta forum. Additionally, please use this issue template as it will help speed up the troubleshooting process. How to opt-in to Fastlane and receive the open beta: Log in to your OrbxDirect account.

How to opt-out of Fastlane and restore to the latest stable version: Log in to your OrbxDirect account.
