  8. Hi all, We've just released LOWI Innsbruck Airport version 1.10. Changes: Added dynamic lighting in Prepar3D v4 Fix batch shift issues for Prepar3D v4 For customers who are in the ObjectFlow 2 Open Beta, installing this update will resolve your issues at Innsbruck.
  9. 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. Fastlane allows you to opt-in to receive potentially unstable updates before they are released to everyone. Once you have opted-in to Fastlane, you will receive a beta update to FTX Central that includes ObjectFlow 2. This update will also allow you to view your airports in FTX Central for Prepar3D v4. Things to note: ObjectFlow 2 is an open BETA. This means it may cause instabilities in your simulator (crashes, display anomalies, etc). 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. Go to the Fastlane page: https://orbxdirect.com/account/fastlane Click "opt-in to Fastlane" Start FTX Central. You will be prompted to update to FTX Central version 3.2.2. You should now see all of your airports for Prepar3D v4 in FTX Central. When starting the simulator, click "yes" when it asks if you want to run ObjectFlow 2. How to opt-out of Fastlane and restore to the latest stable version: Log in to your OrbxDirect account. Go to the Fastlane page: https://orbxdirect.com/account/fastlane Click "opt-out of Fastlane" Delete the %localappdata%\Orbx\FTXCentral directory. Re-install FTX Central from https://orbxdirect.com/ftxcentral You are now running the latest stable version of FTX Central.

  13. Hello everyone, I am sure you are eager for a solution to all our airports working in Prepar3D V4. The good news is that for the past year we have been working in-house to build a new version of ObjectFlow, which we're calling ObjectFlow2 or OF2. OF2 is 64-bit code and will initially be released for P3Dv4. The original OF will continue to be used for FSX and P3D1/2/3. OF2 replicates all the functionality of the original ObjectFlow.dll but has been completely written from the ground up to be extendable to add many new exciting functions, including our own animated jetway system, interaction with avatars, dynamic events and animations - pretty much anything we want to do. The idea is to take the living world you see in Orbx sceneries today to a whole new level over the coming year(s). OF2 and its source code is owned by Orbx, so we now have complete control over updates and new functionality. We will aim to radically shorten the time is takes to add compatibility to new versions of simulators. We are concluding beta testing of OF2 through this week and if all goes well it will be rolled out via an update in FTX Central, and all your airports will again be visible in FTXC when using P3Dv4. We thank you all for your patience whilst you have been deprived of you favourite destinations in LM's brilliant new V4 sim.
  14. Hi all, we are pleased to announce the release of FTX openLC South America! https://orbxdirect.com/product/openlc-sa Also available is a Freeware mesh addon to complement OLC SA - openLC Mesh South America https://orbxdirect.com/product/olcmesh-sa For those that do not have any third party mesh products, this is recommended as well. Continuing on with our successful openLC series, openLC South America covers an area over 17 million square kilometres with FTX Global custom textures and textures unique to openLC. FTXG openLC replaces the default landclass layer with higher detailed and a better variety of land types. This in turn creates a more varied and accurate terrain with FSX or P3D. It has been specifically designed to work with both FTX Global Base and FTX Global Vector as part of the total simulator overhaul. 17 million km sq of new landclass Superb new textures Greatly reduced texture repetition! Full five seasons support 3D night lighting Made for FTX Global and Vector Includes new city night lighting Stunning photoreal volcanoes Additional vector landclass data The Americas now complete! Please note that this product requires FTX Global Base to be installed first for correct operation. Orbx strongly recommends FTX Global Vector to be installed. All featured screenshots on the product page as well as preview shots depict FTX Vector as well as TreesHD.
  15. Welcome to Basque country! Bilbao is the largest city in the Biscay province and the Basque Country as a whole, beautifully located at the northern Spanish coastline. The Basque Country may often be overlooked by the sun seekers travelling to Spain, due to it’s often unpredictable rainy weather. On the other hand, it has proven to be a popular destination for food junkies, hikers and surfers as it possesses incredible nature, great waves and world famous food. Bilbao Airport is an important hub for the northern region and serves destinations all across Europe. Beautifully located in close proximity to the city area, the airport offers fascinating approaches through the mountain range and via the ocean, crossing over the harbour and other parts of the city on final descent. With the nickname ”La Paloma” (The dove), the main terminal has become famous for it’s unique architecture. Designed by Santiago Calatrava and opened in 2000, it serves over 4 million people a year. Our scenery contains the whole city of Bilbao with important buildings added, and the whole harbour upgraded and of course the airport in it’s full glory. We sincerely hope you will enjoy Bilbao! Super-detailed rendition of LEBB High-resolution custom ground textures The whole city of Bilbao is included High-resolution mesh for the whole city Animated traffic & PeopleFlow Moving jetways Dynamic Lighting for P3Dv4 Whole harbour area is upgraded with custom buildings and objects 30 & 60cm/px groundscenery for the whole city area Advanced AO-baking and night lighting techniques By Marcus Nyberg & Philip Schall https://orbxdirect.com/product/lebb ...and ready for P3Dv4 - apart from its 3 windsocks
  16. hi want to know if it's different between FS Global Ultimate - Next Generation and base and vector which I have? best wishes IGAL BEYGEL
  17. A gateway to the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Kern Valley is in the perfect location to make a stop on your journey north from the Los Angeles Basin, and is also just a stone’s throw away from ORBX’s other airfields designed for FTX NA Southern California. This is the second creation by Jordan Gough and we hope you enjoy it! https://orbxdirect.com/product/l05 Over 250 square kilometers of crisp 80cm imagery Sharp 30cm imagery used around the airport Accurate representation of Kern Valley Airport using real on site photos High resolution airport buildings and runways Animated trees around the airport that have almost zero impact on performance TextureFlow optimised = great FPS Amazing mountainous rural location Just a stones throw away from ORBX's other much loved SCA airports The second release by developer Jordan Gough Requires the ORBX FTX NA Southern California region
  18. I think a few of you have been waiting for this one... This is a new version (1.52) that has a new version of the config tool, no other changes are with this update. Please note: P3Dv3/4 addons that use the the addon.xml method will not be picked up by the auto configuration AEC funtion. Considering the low uptake of addons using this method we decided to release Vector now. If an airport requires AEC to be disabled and it uses the addon.xml method, you can manually disable it. We are working on changes for the config tool to cater for these in due course.
  19. Thank you all for taking part in the contests chaps entering and voting, Please remember to be able to cast a vote you must have entered a shot in the contest.

  20. Hello everyone, I thought I would try some "crowd sourcing" of what we as a development team should focus our efforts on with regards to UK airports. We have licensed superb quality aerial imagery for up to 45 airports, of which we will produce 15 or more in 2013. However, I would rather make lovely detailed VFR airports in the UK that customers actually want to buy, rather than using any other criteria. From a business point of view there is very little benefit in making and selling airports which nobody wants to buy. So please can you reply to this post listing the ICAO code and name of the top 15 airfields you would personally spend your money purchasing. There are a few things you need to adhere to to make this topic easy for us to compile into a result: 1. Please do not list mega airports or large international airports. The largest we are likely to make would be Bournemouth or Edinburgh. 2. Please just list 15 ICAO codes and names 3. If you want a 1940's historical field, append (RAF historical) to the airport name 4. You may add a single paragraph at the end of your post to share why you chose your list, but please don't add an essay I will make a promise now as CEO that if we get 200 separate replies to this thread then we will produce a definite list of airport projects for 2013 based on nothing but customer demand. Over to you!
  21. Hi all, We have started to make some of our Freeware products available for P3Dv4 while we wait on the development ObjectFlow for P3Dv4. There is a big caveat with these so please take the following into consideration. The are some elements that will not display due to ObjectFlow not working. Most likely these will be windsocks, seasonal vegetation and some buildings that are conditionally displayed. If those type of things are going to bug you, don't install. If you do install and find these are detracting from your enjoyment, uninstall. Not all have been made available, such as Yosemite/Devils Tower as the main features rely on ObjectFlow and the AI packs which require the models to be redone for P3Dv4. We will be gauging the feedback to this move as we explore if to do the same for the payware airports.
  22. Voting for the contest is now open. 1. Everyone that has entered a shot will have one vote each to choose the winner of the contest. 2. Voting will run for 6 days untill the 6th of July 2017 at midnight GMT. 3.Please cast your vote only here. 4.No voting for your own entry. 5. When voting ends i will announce the winner. cheers Iain
