  3. A destination that needs no introduction, Innsbruck is one of the iconic airports of the world, with a jaw-dropping backdrop, heart-stopping approaches and location smack dab in the heart of Europe. Acclaimed developer Jarrad Marshall (KPSP/KEGE/KMRY/KJAC/KSEZ/YBCS) has created something truly unique with his first European destination. Within the scenery's extraordinary coverage area (our largest to date), explore the peaks and glaciers of the Austrian Alps, the picturesque Inn, Wipp and Stubai Valleys, the historic Brenner Pass and even Germany's tallest mountain, Zugspitze. Over a dozen towns and villages dot the Tyrolian landscape, and of course the city of Innsbruck has been created in immaculate detail. Innsbruck Airport itself is the country's third largest and is a true multi-purpose field; where else will you see busy airline schedules competing for space alongside corporate hi-flyers, rescue and leisure helicopter crew, general aviation flyers, recreational glider pilots and even frequent Red Bull visitors? Try your hand at the infamously tricky Rwy08 approach, test your aircraft's performance with a mid-summer departure, or explore the hidden valleys from one of the five bonus heliports - there really is something for everyone. As always, Jarrad has innovated new techniques to tweak the very best performance possible, in order for you to enjoy the airport alongside your favourite hi-end aircraft addons. From the huge coverage area down to the smallest details, Innsbruck truly is the home for all flyers. Far more than just an airport! Ultra-detailed rendition of LOWI Enormous 2500km2 coverage area at 1m/60cm/30cm with 10m DEM Five additional heliports including LOJO, LOIU, LOJT, LOIN Over 160+ Landmarks and POI in coverage area 30km of animated train routes Custom HD GSE exclusive to Innsbruck Crisp 2048 textures for priority buildings Advanced AO, rendering and night lighting techniques City centre and many other focus areas in high detail Over 20 custom bridges and overpasses All-new static aircraft types unique to Innsbruck Airport Ultra-HD groundpoly Huge extended coverage area 275km diameter Painstakingly optimised for best performance LOWI User Guide https://orbxdirect.com/product/lowi/afs2 A 40% discount will apply for customers that already own the FSX/P3D version of LOWI Innsbruck.

  4. Few airports hold as much nostalgia, familiarity, and emotion for aviation enthusiasts. Located on the shores of Lake Michigan, Meigs Field operated as the gateway to corporate Chicago for over half a century. Now, twelve years after its closure, Merrill C. Meigs Field (KCGX) has been recreated by Orbx and IPACS with the utmost attention to detail and accuracy. Depicted as it was in its final years, virtual pilots are welcomed to return to what was once the busiest single strip airport in the United States and enjoy it in high definition. Featuring a fully modeled terminal, highly detailed static aircraft, and other historically accurate elements, the airport has been brought back to life. In addition to the airfield itself, the city of Chicago waterfront and parks district have been included as well. This special release for Aerofly by Orbx includes 12,000km2 of photoreal coverage, animated people and ferris wheel plus many other details to discover. 12,000km2 of photoreal imagery! Ultra detailed rendition of KCGX Meigs Field circa late 90's and early 2000's Extraordinarily detailed interior model of the terminal Many highly detailed Chicago landmarks, including Soldier Field, Cloudgate, Adler Planetarium, Navy Pier and The Shedd Custom CBD for Chicago skyline including Sears Tower, Aeon Center, Trump Tower, Hancock Center Thousands of autogen buildings accurately placed Advanced rendering, ambient occlusion and night-lighting Airport imagery at 30cm per pixel Beautifully modelled static aircraft Animated people and ferris wheel Unbelievable performance, very high FPS Incredible VR experience A collaboration between Orbx and IPACS KCGX User Guide https://orbxdirect.com/product/kcgx/afs2 A 40% discount will apply for customers that already own the FSX/P3D version of KCGX Meigs Field.

  5. Thanks all, appreciate the great feedback.
  6. The FTX Central 3.2 update is now available and with it comes the ability to install P3Dv4 ready FTX products into P3Dv4. There is also a important Orbxlibs update that is required for P3Dv4 compatibility. FTX Central When starting FTX Central, you will see the Apply FTX Central update notification on the bottom left. Clicking on the blue notification will apply the update and FTX Central will restart. With a valid copy of P3Dv4 correctly installed you will see the option for it as below. This is an important bit of information and no doubt we will see questions about it. Only FTX products that are ready for P3Dv4 will show up in FTX Central as installed or available for installing! With the image below, even though I own all Global products, you can see that only Base Pack, openLC NA, Trees HD and Orbxlibs is installed with openLC EU available to install. This does not mean you products are gone from your OrbxDirect account, merely they are not compatible for P3Dv4 yet. Some installation tips If you have P3Dv3 already installed with Orbx products Installing into P3Dv4 with FTXC3 will be made easier if you have P3Dv3 already installed with FTX addons. With the updated FTX Central, ensure that "Only show products that I have installed" option is not ticked under "Settings". That way when starting FTXC3 and selecting P3Dv4 as your simulator, you will see which of your purchased products are ready to install into P3Dv4. We recommend leaving your P3Dv3 install in place so FTXC3 can simply copy files to your P3Dv4 installation without the need to download files again. If you have manual download zip files already saved, or FTXC3 backups of installs, you can use FTXC3 to point to these and install into P3Dv4 from there. If you have FSX or FSX:SE installed but don't have Prepar3D installed If you have decided to make the move from FSX to P3Dv4 and *dont* have earlier versions of P3D installed you must download all the Orbx products which are P3Dv4-ready using FTX Central. Your products installed into FSX cannot be copied to P3Dv4 - they are different builds and not compatible. Please do not manually move Orbx files and folders over to P3Dv4. Orbxlibs 170601 A new version for Orbxlibs is available which has some important files for P3Dv4 as well as some new library objects. What's ready for P3Dv4? Global Base Pack, openLC North America, openLC Europe & TreesHD All Regions for North America, Europe & Oceania (plus Holgermesh for Australia) Orbxlibs What's not ready for P3Dv4? FTX Vector All airports (payware and freeware) FTX Global Lights Configurator AI Traffic packs FTX Global NA & EU Airport Packs BOB All Demos All Aircraft (see further below on these) With regards to our airports and as you may be aware of, our ObjectFlow DLL requires reworking to ensure compatibility with the P3Dv4. This work has been progressing but as we are moving to a 64bit application, this has taken longer than anticipated. For this reason we will not be making our airports available until we have a working ObjectFlow DLL. As you know this DLL controls a lot of our scenery elements with conditional displays FTX Vector also relies on a 3rd party app to adjust airports, and we are waiting on a 64-bit version of this app before making Vector available. is quite critical. The Lancair, Victa and Vans RV4 will not be made available for P3Dv4 as we are not satisfied with their compatibility. This will most likely not change due to the developers no longer being active. Unfortunately our dependency on 3rd party apps and ObjectFlow hinders the pace in which we can roll these out to you. We have been down this path before with P3Dv2 and P3Dv3 but we have always delivered on those - at no extra cost to you. So while we would obviously like to have them done ASAP, we are going to need to be patient whilst work is done those apps/modules. I'd recommend getting some fresh air, spending time with your significant other/family/dog/cat or reading a book instead of checking in constantly on these forums for updates. We respectfully ask that you do not ask us for time frames or updates.
