announcement No upgrade fee for Orbx products for next version of P3D

Recommended Posts

Speechless! I own - and enjoy - all of your products and however this will work, I'll take it the way it does.

 

Thank you and your team, you certainly had at least the burden of testing

First of all a big THANK YOU for this!

 

Okay, no tech questions... but can you say something about the expected duration to convert ORBX addons from v3 to lets name it v4 compatibility? Will it be a quickie or is it possible that we have to wait as long as with v2 > v3?

Just upgraded to P3D with the long waited Orbx sceneries. Was bit of hesitating whether to get the sceneries now or wait with next version. Thanks, great news!

There will be no wait, FTXCv3 will do it all for you. That capability has already been added to the current build of FTXC which you have now.  That's all I can say, please don't push any further ;)

This has made the decision to move to a new version of P3D more enticing.

 

Happy with what I have but if improvements are realised in P3D it will make the transition less costly - just the cost of the new P3D version and a bit of minor manipulation of the holder of the purse strings.

This is unbelievably wonderful news JV! You made my day with this information, and it is yet further testament how Orbx is such a great company and respects their loyal customers. Rock on! :D

This is great news, it leads to a couple of conclusions:

1. P3DV4 is coming, when, perhaps a year.

2. Orbx has a firm grip on the new code, and the technical expertise to move the existing base without significant cost.

3. New products coming up will not see a drop in sales, which could have had an impact on Orbx cashflow, need to pay the bills!

 

A real win/win all around, and probably a very carefully thought out decision.

This really is fantastic news, thank you John and Orbx.

 

My current computer is on its last legs so I'm planning a new PC based on a potential P3D v4 release in 2017 where I can start afresh - my sim right now is a mess!

That is great news John, Thank you!

 

I have been thinking about trying P3D but was worried about the cost of replicating many of my FSX addons.

 

I can see me purchasing even more of your products now!

Fantastic John, thank you. I wasn't going to upgrade to any more versions of P3D because of the expense I expected to incur upgrading my Orbx scenery.  Now I will look forward to it. You are a great team.

 

Thank you again. :wub::wub::wub:

Nah, I don't think it will take this long. JV - as a serious business man - won't make announcements of this kind so far ahead.There could be too many things happen in between.

But now let's end speculation, otherwise the topic will get locked. ^_^

 

And of course, JV, thank you very much!

That's pretty good news.  The added benefit of FTXC 3 will also be on display as it doesn't seem that a lengthy redownload of all your ORBX products will be required.  I must admit I wasn't even contemplating P3DV4, but I guess I am at least contemplating now.

...Please do NOT ask me or any member of the Orbx team about any tech details about any new P3D releases from LM, or why we can make this zero-cost promise. We are under NDA and we will not be pressed into talking about it for obvious reasons. If and when LM give us permission to discuss things publicly then we'll do so...

 

Thanks for the update, and regarding the " We cannot talk..." thing,... thats OK as well. Lets have 6-7 beers anyway. cheers
