We are proud to launch the Orbx Community Discord server! 

 

Our Discord server is a great place to interact with other like-minded members of the community, as well as having informal (and perhaps off-the-record!) chats with our team. We have created a few channels for showing off your great screenshots, as well as joining in on some group flights. There are some Discord-exclusive events and competitions planned too - stay tuned!


This is another community channel in addition to our forum. We’d love for you all to join. Rest assured, the forum isn’t going anywhere.

 

Join today: https://orbx.to/discord

Great work Dora and crew ;).  The Discord channel is looking great.  Hopefully it becomes a hub for some interesting group flights, which are thankfully made very easy with MSFS.

Somehow to me, setting up a Discord page, changing the logo, etc. appear to be detracting from the purpose of Orbx -- developing scenery for the sims it supports.  I know doing MSFS stuff is easier than P3d and XP, but the company seems to be paying more attention to corparatism than its core business.  YMMV.

Orbx has no doubt grown since it's inception and it's grown big enough to have a commercial team, of which they will be the ones setting up a discord, changing the logo etc, not the developers, every company will/have changed their logo in there life span, just like in the late noughties most companies set up a social media presence on twitter and facebook, the time has now come from discord. If Orbx wasn't releasing software or replying to support (which they're doing both) I would agree. I don't get why people have issues with companies doing normal company things especially when they're not detracting from their core business...

Clicked on and was told 'invalid invite' - are they trying to tell me something? 

 

I had that on the first try too.  What I did was to open the Discord app (program) on my PC, and then clicked on that link which gave me the invite code in the address bar at the top.  I think you may have to just be signed in to Discord when you click on that invite link.  Discord is available as a website on your browser, or there is also program on your PC, which will probably be required if you ever want to use the chat/voice functions.  Discord is great for multiplayer or group flights, as you simply set up your microphone/headset in Discord, and then it is just a matter of clicking once on the relevant voice channel when you want to chat on it.

Same here!  I'm in good company then olderndirt.  ^_^

 

Edit

  Seems a logout/login to Discord sorted the Invalid Invite error.  Looks promising!

I can't get beyond the 'unclaimed account'  stuff. I have no idea what 'discord' is all about or how it works!
