Maybe they blew out of town, locked the door, and turned off the lights...

There are a number of websites you can visit to see if it's you or everyone.  In this case, it's everyone.

 

See: http://www.isitdowrightnow.com for example.

Hey Ses - note I edited the link since I originally mistranscribed it.  If you click on the original it'll error.  Sorry 'bout that.

No problem!  Found this happening most of the morning.  I read your correction to my post, regarding HD Trees in fat regions...and took note. Thanks!

It's still the middle of the night in Oz, so maybe the ISP servers are down for maintenance or hacked again.. :(

 

Both ORBX and OZx are down together with OZx image host..

As well as Ozx and Orbx, Rex is also down

It's as I expected, Australia has been switched off. That'll teach 'em to pay their lecky bills.

But the Australian-based FSS is online. Yet.

There might be perhaps, a power outage that shut down ORBX's server location, and not FSS.

Our website, forum and email are all hosted with the same company as ORBX. We have sent correspondence on the matter and hope it's resolved soon!

Bummer... bought Trees HD and need the new Orbxlibs but can't download it now... I think a vital file like that should be available from other sites too, like the Flightsimstore...

That'll be a very colourful correspondence I'll be bound!

I am also finding that FTX Central 2 is no longer showing my installed add-ons. Does it work by polling the Orbx servers before letting addons run, e.g. is it DRM?

 

EDIT: Also I had a ton of problems last night with FSS, the site was super slow and sent me several purchase notifications. Really hope I didn't use the site during a hack?

I just read your post...and was curious...fired up Central 2..and everything shows as it should. Did that with P3D as well.  You might have an issue....

Having said that, the Orbx site literally just came back online as well. Just good timing on your end.

 

And now my addons all show up.
