The best news since the NGX was made V4 compatible. Like many, my simming experience is pretty Orbx airport dependent, so I really can't wait and the wait so far has been excruciating.

It's Here !!!!!!

 

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.

HOW TO OPT-IN TO FASTLANE AND RECEIVE THE OPEN BETA:

1. Log in to your OrbxDirect account.
2, Go to the Fastlane page: https://orbxdirect.com/account/fastlane
3. Click "opt-in to Fastlane"
4. Start FTX Central. You will be prompted to update to FTX Central version 3.2.2.
5. You should now see all of your airports for Prepar3D v4 in FTX Central.
6. When starting the simulator, click "yes" when it asks if you want to run ObjectFlow 2.

HOW TO OPT-OUT OF FASTLANE AND RESTORE THE LATEST STABLE VERSION:

1. Log in to your OrbxDirect account.
2. Go to the Fastlane page: https://orbxdirect.com/account/fastlane
3. Click "opt-out of Fastlane"
4. Delete the %localappdata%\Orbx\FTXCentral directory. 
5. Re-install FTX Central from https://orbxdirect.com/ftxcentral
6. You are now running the latest stable version of FTX Central.

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.

See the release announcement: http://www.orbxsystems.com/…/topic/139402-objectflow-2-ope…/

That is the risk, of course, but hopefully most showstoppers have already been squashed, as I rather think Orbx wouldn't release the airports if most of the heavy lifting wasn't already behind them.

Seems like work, I have become so used to the PMDG OC and Orbx Central I think i would rather wait for official release and then click one button to make it work.

Actually it's super simple. Took me less than a minute. You still use FTX Central. The Fastlane approval is just like the process for loading Orbx freeware to appear in FTX Central. Fastlane is invisible within FTX Central. It just seems to facilitate the availability of all the airports. Then its the usual simple installation process we've come to know and love.

Yep. Vector tool doesn't seem to fix it. I don't know if it is Vector or FsGlobal NG causing it? I had the same problem with Fsdreamteam Dallas.

I am having no elevation problems, just ran a few circuits around Darrington and everything worked well and it was a very nice afternoon, wind out of the west at 2 knots (just have to watch the bird flocks on approach-- I'm happy to now try out the other 15 or so.

Great news, been waiting for this like you all as well!

Do have to say, I give Orbx credit for their servers now.  I know it's a busy time as we are all downloading, but they are the first server to max out my new AT&T 1000mb line... just downloaded all my airports at about 136MB/s, which is just over 1000mb.  Props to Orbx!

Now to finally get to play with Pago Pago and Tapini again!!!

You do realize that if you have P3Dver3 installed still and have your airports in it, you are copying from there to ver 4? Thats the only reason I still had ver 3 installed.
