Indeed, great timing as I was about to buy Innsbruck LOWI and it was sat in the basket at full price while I was looking at other airports when I had a quick look at Facebook and saw the announcement.  Needless to say I quickly removed it from the basket and re-added at the reduced price :)

I wonder if a lot of customers (like me) have stopped buying ORBX since the move to their unified system, hence a need for funds and another unexpected sale?

I will buy ORBX again, if the following happens:

1. Ability to download to my hard disk and install from there (we had this at FlightSimStore, ORBX took it away)

2. Ability to purchase with my Paypal account (we had it FSS, ORBX took it away)

3. Review system by customers. I know most of ORBX is good, but I can only buy so many things at a time and a review system will help me to prioritise purchases, and provide more objective information about what I'm buying. (we had it at FSS, ORBX took it away)

I very dangerously logged on after a bottle over wine of dinner -  care factor zero - 9 products added to the collection. :biggrin:

They work in P3d v4 if you opt in.

I don't know whether to be elated or slightly concerned. Orbx sales have followed a very predictable pattern for many years and we suddenly get another 48% offer not long after the last one.

I suspect the recent, surprisingly long, delay in sorting out V4 airport compatibility,  thankfully now resolved by the beta launch, may have taken its toll on Orbx cashflow. What better than a sale to make up for lost time.

Nonetheless it's most welcome.

Yeah...that'd be my guess.  I do wish they'd work more on regional type airports than those tiny things, though...they're nice...I own a lot of them but I use them less and less.  Some regionals have some nice approaches and you can use them for both GA and commercial.  They've really opened up the world with their OLC and there are so many potential airports.

I bet sales would be better if they took PayPal. I know over the years I built up my PayPal balance just so I can make Flight Sim purchases when something new comes out and not drain my primary account. As it stands now I have to use the wife's CC in order to make a Orbx purchases and I have to transfer the PP amount from one account to another. They won't even take Debit/Credit cards which is strange. Even Apple takes Debit/Credit cards. As it stands now Its not worth the pain when the purchase can be really simple.

This is good news since AeroFly 2 Innsbruck and Meigs are on sale as well.
