Great Deal on Orbx addons at the flightsimstore.com!

Recommended Posts

Ok so here's the deal this sale is on the boxed items but if you buy a boxed product you can"purchase" the download of that product for free.  The Boxed products are only $4.57 US and shipping to the US for the 5 airports I got was $23. So basically I got the airports for $9 a piece while the download versions of these cost around $20!! This only works if you buy a few of the airports as this will allow you to combine shipping, The Lancair is also on sale as well. so it was quite a deal. I'm downloading the airports now,I guess I'll use the disks for something IDK what maybe eBay them.

Too bad all the airports require the purchase of FTX foundation scenery.

And they are all DVDs too. No downloads I can see of. Wonder what the shipping would be to the UK? Would it outweigh the 'bargains',.........er?

I wish ORBX would shift some of their airport team to making big airports for us Tube fliers instead of mostly GA and Light Business Jet airports.   So many major airports still need payware love out there and ORBX is extremely talented at the airports they make.

Argh!  NO!

 

Sorry, but there's almost no-one else doing quality GA fields.  Please leave us poor GA guys at least ONE good airport developer. :(

I saw this last week, but was not confident that I would receive access to download the updated P3Dv2 installers. My guess is I won't.

Even if it says on flightsimstore website "Buy the box, then "purchase" the download FREE!"?

Yea I download addons about 5 min after I bought the disks and most of the airports are p3dv2 compat. I just wish I had picked up the Lance air since shiping for as many disks as I wanted was only $23 to the US

Well all of them actually a couple you have to use the migration tool but they work fine.

All unusable in P3DV2

Actually I have all the ones I bought working I p3dv2. You download the installers from FSS. For the ones with no p3dv2 installer just use the migration tool

You haven't even checked, have you..?

Yes, I flew out of KSFF a few nights ago which doesn't have a p3dv2 installer. Some of the others do have p3dv2 installers

I need some help on understanding the purchase DVD sale price. Lets say I purchase two of the DVD items @ current sale price I am then able to download the same items for free.  If that is the case since Iive in the US couldn't I just go ahead and get the download and ask them to keep the DVD's  to avoid the shipping costs.  What am I missing..

Hi Carl

 

I'm at the opposite end to your logic. I'm in the UK, and all I want is just one title, as I already have the rest.

 

To purchase that one single title, boxed, DVD, will cost me approx $20 for P&P when the DVD is less than $5. Seems from what I can discern the catch is you can get the download, for free, as long as one is prepared to shell out for P&P which is prohibitive, for me, at least.

I think they want to be rid of the disks as inventory takes up space and that costs money. I plan on putting the disks up on ebay when they get here. And selling them for a pretry low price. Like $7 per item.

Interesting...If you purchase the DVD and have access to the download, does this mean the DVD and download license keys are separate? Any chance your plan could be going against the Flightsim Store's terms of sale?

If they have the same keys I won't resell and I'll check into the TOS as I don't want to step on anyone's toes.

Why can't you purchase the boxed edition, tell them not to ship it and just throw it out in the skip and then just download it?

I have chosen 5 cost £12 GOOD BARGAIN hip hooray  but then they want £40 delivery,it insists on adding this charge so no bargain for me,is this the real deal you have to have the boxes why don't they just bin them? and let me download,it seems the high postage kills the deal with no benefit to the store,or am i being daft and not seeing common sense

If you are situated in Germany, you can order ORBX boxes in clearout sales from two official vendors: flightandfun.de and Aerosoft.com.

 

No P&P charged within Germany. flightandfun ship to Ireland for a small extra fee, but I was unable to find any costs for shipping to the U.K.

If you just wanted the download and not the disc itself I cant see why a fake address could not be created for Australia, post them out and forget about it
