Thank you for your good wishes and news, John. I'd say I see only good news here, having OpenLC NAS in February will come just at the right time, after we've flown Socal in all its nooks and crannies.

 

In the true spirit of the flightsimming community (that is, give them your hand and they'll try to eat up your arm), I'll add that I very much look forward to the new additions to Tim & Ken's Experience line in 2016, PNG #2 and another Pacific Island package.  Also now that Xmas 2015 is almost behind us :lol:, I also look forward to hear some announcement of the much awaited OpenLC Asia for Xmas 2016 ! 

 

My own wishes to you and all the people at OrbX for a joyful and happy end of the year !

Maybe the OpenLC delay? But that doesn't sound that bad.... And maybe a hint of future products? Stockholm ICAO is ESSA, not EDDE :P

It was this part here:

openLC NA USA/Mexico (including Hawaii and the Caribbean) will be delayed until the new year. All the new textures and LC are done and we're just waiting on final autogen and night lighting to be completed. We may possibly be in beta as soon as late next week but as you can understand there's no way I am going to sign off on it without testing most of the millions of square miles of landclass, so I'd rather it be in good shape and delay release for a bit. I'm confident it will be out in the first quarter, possibly by February.

 

 

Not really the end of the world IMHO, but that's fine. 

 

Good to know that it's making good progress and will be appearing on the horizon in the more-or-less near future.

The good news is I get to spread out my upcoming Orbx spending over the next few months, with all my holiday spending this month! :D

 

All the hard, high-quality and innovative work being done by the Orbx team is greatly appreciated.

I join the folks above not seeing any "not-so-good" news here. All is fine, and good quality takes its time. We all get crazy when things don´t work, or even cause trouble, but I do not have a problem being forced to discover the present Orbxworld in deeper detail.

 

A prosperous year-end & 2016 to the Orbx team!

I prefer FTX NA SCA & openLC USA/Mexico coming out with the proposed spacing in lieu of concurrently.

As others have mentioned, allows time to explore SCA before the openLC arrives.

 

Best wishes for  a happy & healthy New Year to all at, & associated with, Orbx.

A very well run enterprise.

Thank you for the information.  I know you hate opening the door to the torrent of responses, but I am one who really likes a general idea of whats coming - anticipation is fun, just ask any kid before Christmas, or for that matter any flight simmer before FTX NA SCA.  ;)

 

My one wondering, and I know there will be no answer, is if Northern Germany will include the North Sea and Baltic islands.  I sure hope so.

 

And may you and yours and all the guys working in the backroom sweatshop have a wonderful and blessed holiday.

Will open LCNA  be a recumbent for those who still use UTX USCN? Thanks for all the good work!

Hello JV and All staff at ORBX,

 

Thank you for keeping us all informed JV. I must say 2015 has been a busy year for you guys. My wallet is much thinner but who cares, the work your team has produced is just amazing and makes simming a treat. I look forward to 2016 and ready for the new releases.

 

All the best to you all, and your families, and have a happy and safe Xmas and New Year.

 

Regards

 

Sam

Thank You for the excellent update - you guys are turning some insane products.  I officially have to get a new ssd, I can't possibly hold this much in my current ssd.

 

Keep them cranking.

"....(including Hawaii and the Caribbean)....."     If this was mentioned before in coverage, I somehow managed to miss it. Now that I do know about it, I am twice as excited :D

 

That the LC will include Hawaii and the Caribbean is better news to me than the "good" news.....lol.

 

Thanks for all the hard work, and Merry Christmas.

 

Happy Flying.

Merry Christmas, John and the entire ORBX Team.

No bad news as far as I'm concerned; there will be plenty of "new toys" to play with until SoCal LC comes along!

Firstly Happy Xmas and New Year to all the ORBX crew and their families.

Exciting year ahead with so many great released in the pipeline.

Nothing but good news here, good news about all the new airports and regions.

The best news for me is the fact that you care about your reputation enough not to release a programme before it is ready or with known faults.

This is what puts ORBX head and shoulders above most of the competition.

Well done and here is to an even greater future.

I was going to say the same thing. 

 

Since they never gave us a release date of Open LC NA, hearing that there's a delay doesn't seem that bad since we weren't expecting it at a certain date or time.

Thanks for the update, John.. Very much appreciated.. Orbx has completely turned round my flight simming and the quality of software is such that it goes a great distance to fill the gap left when I retired from flying due to age related ill health.. I look forward to every release of this excellent product and will continue to do so.  Happy Christmas to you, and all the Orbx developers...........I'm still trying to find the 'not so good news' in your post!

I just need Ed's delivery address for the cartons of Red Bull I'm sending. :lol:   Seriously guys, thank you so much for your fantastic products and equally excellent support. Thank you also for the enormous efforts you have all made preparing p3dv3 installers for those of us who have made the switch. The new products in the pipeline sound exciting. Like the others above, I see no bad, or even not so good news in your post John.
