  1. Hi all, There's been a bunch of speculation about our pricing policy for the next version of P3D, likely based on my previous posts back in December. Let me clarify: we will NOT be charging anything for our products for the next version of P3D. They will be 100% free to use on the new platform. Better still, through the magic of FTXCv3 you won't even need to re-download them. 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. I just wanted to reassure those with a sizeable investment in Orbx products for P3D that you won't be asked a penny more to upgrade.

  11. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE APRIL 28TH 2017 - Toowong Australia and Tubigen Germany ORBX AND IPACS FORM PARTNERSHIP TO CO-PUBLISH HD CONTENT FOR AEROFLY FS 2 Following many months of planning and collaborative development, Orbxs and IPACS are pleased to announce that both companies will be publishing HD Orbx airports and other regional content for the Aerofly FS 2 simulator. Aerofly FS 2 (AFS2) is a state-of-the-art 64-bit flight simulator which is recognised as having the most efficient and highest performing 3D engine on the market today, with superb lighting and animation support and the smoothest VR experience available for any simulator anywhere. The first two titles to be published are LOWI Innsbruck Airport in Austria, and KCGX Merill C. Meigs Field in Chicago USA, both which have been faithfully ported and enhanced for the AFS2 platform and even add features like a sloping runway at LOWI. "I am extremely excited about this new emerging sim platform", says John Venema, Orbx CEO. "We have found a development partner in IPACS with the same ideals, passion and professionalism as the Orbx team and these past months have been a pleasure in terms of cooperation and joint creativity". Dr. Torsten Hans, CEO of IPACS adds; "We're absolutely thrilled to be co-publishing new HD content from Orbx, a company who we have enormous respect for and have been aware of the quality of their work for some time. I am looking forward to further development of this partnership and many new exciting features to come to AFS2". LOWI and KCGX will be available to purchase from 15th June 2017 on the OrbxDirect.com web store and will be managed by Orbx's FTX Central application for automatic updates. Likewise, for existing IPACS customers who prefer Steam LOWI and KCGX will also be available to purchase from the Steam store as DLC. Exclusive to Orbx customers who have an OrbxDirect.com account, there will be a 40% discount offered to anyone who has previously purchased those airports for FSX/P3D. Orbx intends to offer this discount for all future content sold across different sim platforms. The discount works both ways, so any customers who purchase the AFS2 version of LOWI and KCGX first, will be offered 40% off for the FSX/P3D version. LOWI and KCGX will be previewed live at Flightsimcon 2017 in Connecticut from June 10th and will include VR demonstrations as well. Watch for more announcements from Orbx/IPACS very soon! LOWI preview shots can be found here: )
  12. Not so much a release announcement but a note for DVD customers that did not use the FSS DVD cross-grade offer when it was available and are still waiting for our DVD transfer request to be put in place. You can find updates for DVD products here particularly for the regions. Note that these are old style installers and do not use FTX Central and will bring your region up to the current version available. We are still progressing on the DVD cross grade option for our website currently and has proved to be more of trickier bit of functionality to implement. Please remember that this cross grade offer will be a "paid for" service with a fee per DVD to cover admin costs. That pricing still needs to be finalised.

  16. FLIGHTSIMCON 2017 BUILDS MOMENTUM WITH NEWEST EXHIBITORS AND SPONSORS A growing list of sponsors and exhibitors helps build excitement for the 5th edition of the Connecticut-based flight simulation conference. WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn – March 13, 2017 – FlightSimCon 2017, North America’s largest annual aviation and flight simulation conference, is pleased to announce several updates to its growing list of sponsors and exhibitors. The fifth edition of the conference takes place on Saturday and Sunday, June 10 & 11, at the Sheraton Hartford Hotel at Bradley International Airport, just outside of Hartford, Connecticut. New to the list of sponsors is Aer Lingus, which now offers non-stop flights between Dublin, Ireland and the conference location—Hartford, Connecticut’s Bradley International Airport. With dozens of connections available from around Europe, attendees from across the pond will now have a convenient and affordable way to get to FlightSimCon 2017. “The Aer Lingus flight will make it even easier for our European-based attendees and partners to make it to the conference in 2017,” said event manager Nicole Glander. Another new addition to FlightSimCon this year is Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Embry-Riddle, the world's largest, fully accredited university specializing in aviation and aerospace, will be exhibiting at FlightSimCon 2017. Embry-Riddle joins Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology, which will also be exhibiting at the event. “One of the biggest challenges for student pilots is determining a career path from Cessna to Boeing,” said event team member Evan Reiter. “The addition of both Embry-Riddle and Vaughn to the conference will aid in showing our many high school and college-aged attendees how to turn aviation into a career.” In addition to these additions, the conference is pleased to announce the following new exhibitors: PilotEdge, Dovetail Games (developer of Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition), Laminar Research (developer of X-Plane), FlyInside, FSFX Packages, Noble Flight Simulation, Sim Innovations, TFDi Design, VATSTAR and VolairSim. This brings the current number of exhibitors to 25—with more expected to come onboard before June. Exhibitors will have a variety of hands-on demonstrations for attendees to try and will be showing off a large selection of hardware and software products. The conference will also be featuring over a dozen engaging speakers and seminars on topics ranging from how to make your own DIY home cockpit to turning aviation from a hobby into a career. Speakers include current and former airline pilots, military personnel, flight simulation developers, and people from across the aviation and flight simulation world. The conference will also feature a complimentary social event on Saturday night, sponsored by Private Jet Class Sponsor Orbx Simulation Systems. To see the full list of sponsors, exhibitors and speakers—and to register for the conference—head to www.flightsimcon.com. Registering online in advance of the event is strongly encouraged, and offers substantial discounts from on-site registrations.
