Good news, I've been holding off in getting Eagle County and Bar Harbor, just because I thought they stuck to a standard price across the board for some time, but I guess it's time to grab a couple of bargains!

Jeez, I can't catch a break!  I've had ###### poor timing on purchasing sceneries lately.  Picked up Eagle County, Innsbruck and FTX Global about 3 weeks ago.  At least now I can grab some others I've been looking at.

It's almost like saving for retirement, if you worry every day about the market, you spend more money trying to ride the wave, but if you treat it like a 401k, then you don't worry about the ups and downs of the market. However, if you see a chance to jump into something that normally doesn't happen every day, then that's the time to jump in and grab it. That's how I've always dealt with FSX and P3D, as much as I would like to have or fly a scenery, I just wait and go fly something I already have and probably never have used much.

I can understand that. So far, I have put several products to a hold and most of them indeed have discount every now and then. I managed to pick up most of the addons that I want.

Sorry to be mean, but if you would have looked/searched, you would have seen they do a sale this time of year every year...

Agree... my main wish was to get LOWI. Sine I saw it's about to. E released for AF2, would get that and then the "upgrade" for AF2. But I won't be paying full price twice for both... 

Oh well, will have to wait until december I guess...

Shalom and greetings all my pals,

Orbx is having 47 percent off sale even though I do not know which products.

So since I am totally new and totally clueless about Orbx stuff, what scenery or package do I need in order to be able to utilize and enjoy PAJN and PAKT sceneries, please?

Will Orbx sceneries screw up FSX and computer systems??  Can Orbx run in powerful laptops?

Regards,

Aharon

Hi Aharon,

If you go to the bottom of the product page for PANJ and PAKT sceneries on the Orbx website, it will tell you which products are required.

Hello,

I've been looking at Orbx products for quite some time now but I'm still not sure if they're worth it. Now would be a good time to buy some products from them but I first wanted to know if it affects the performance of the simulator? I'm using FSX: SE.

The products I would purchase are:
- FTX Global BASE Pack
- FTX Global VECTOR
- FTX Global openLC North America

The last product gives better quality over the BASE pack, right?

Kind regards,
Tomas

Hi Tomas,

So start with the three full blown demos and see how they run - all completely free...

  • Iceland
  • Tasmania
  • US Pacific North West

DEMO's: https://orbxdirect.com/demos

I prefer F1 Ultimate Terrain to Vector myself - your mileage may vary...

Global Base is textures - Open LC may include some textures but a Land Class controls where towns, villages, fields, farmland, cities, etc appear in the sim for greater accuracy... I'd recommend both of them - then download the massive FREEWARE Airports Packs - provides hundreds of improved airports...

FREEWARE: https://orbxdirect.com/freeware

Scott

When I decided to try this Iceland, it says "You require at least one of the following products to use FTX Global Iceland Demo.:  Orbx Libraries"

So I clicked on Orbx Libraries to download that,  it said "It appears that the page you're looking for cannot be reached."

Lovely, isn't it? :)

I tried the Iceland demo and was impressed. It however messed with my scenery files and I had to completely uninstall it unfortunately.

I still have time to decide ;)

Agreed.  It's a great product, but it never goes on sale and at ~$150 USD , the five areas only cover a portion of the globe.

Still, I would not hesitate to recommend it if flying is limited to one or two areas.

Otherwise, IMHO, the current sale price of $42.37 AUD more than makes up for any of FTX Global Vector's perceived deficiencies.

Maybe you mean GSX? Ultimate terrain X as far as I know is just US and Europe. 

 

And GSX is not the same/equivalent to vector, it's just textures like FTX Global.

Maybe you mean GEX. GSX is a program by FSDT that handles gate operations.

GEX is a texture replacement like ORBX Global.
