I got both and it's about $43.02 for the South and $21.18 for the North at 50%. It is strange the North owners are not getting a discount for the South.  Perhaps that's in the offing.  I was going to buy the North when it was first released but happy I waited until the South was released.  I had a feeling....

I always got everything else at their sales, now with GES being my hometurf I decided not to wait and purchased at full price. At this level of quality I do not feel bad at all.

Rather than self-inflicting their busiest trading times to the occasional sales campaigns, I can't understand why Orbx doesn't consider a volume discount tariff, based on the number of previously purchased add-ons, perhaps with discount rewards on future purchases as one reaches 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% levels?

This would then prevent the understandable bad feeling among those who have previously purchased Germany North not getting any discount for purchasing Germany South.

Orbx unquestionably now has the store technology to do this and it should also lead to less need for those aggressively discounted sales and actually provide customers with an incentive to steadily work toward reaching the next discount level.

I also think they need to look at their legacy add-on pricing levels. Australia, for example, which is simply not at the same level as more recent regions/airports.

I'd post this at the Orbx forum, but JV's response is a bit unpredictable and I'm sure they read Avsim.

Absolutely! Quite a turn-off otherwise.

Yep, that appears to be the message that ORBX convenes with this discount. Strange ...

I should get a discount for the download size. On my internet that will take about 10 hours.

Clearly the thinking behind the discount is that many more people are interested in Germany South than North, so you encourage people that otherwise wouldn't have any interest in North to buy it. That seems like fairly sound business thinking, to be honest. Southern Germany has some breathtaking scenery -- mountains, forests, fairytale castles. Northern Germany? Well, it's mostly (I know, not entirely) a big flat plain, isn't it?

Don't get me wrong. As a customer, I'd love to see even more discounts and sales! But it's fairly clear why this discount only runs in one direction...similar to the discount they had for purchasers of the Ireland scenery to buy the Northern Ireland one. Clear that there were a lot more people buying one than the other.

I just buy my Orbx products when they have the big sales. They usually have 2 or 3 a year.  IMO they are not worth the full asking price.

I'm not quite sure why owners of Germany North are expecting a discount.  Orbx certainly did not give a discount to Southern CA for owners of Northern CA.

Guys - you guys are being fair to Orbx here.

 

As Greggy_D says to - "Orbx did not give discount on SoCal for NorCal buyers".  Agree with you Sir (See his post above) 

 

And I bought both of them at full price.  The amount of work done is amazing.  If people complain needlessly, think on how the developer feels when he reads these forums (and believe me they are members of avsim also).

 

This deal is just to entice new flight sim hobbyists people holding of buying the full Germany, or maybe it is their first time in flightsim world as it is better to the full country now that 64bit sim is here.  I already see developers getting their German airports ready to be used on top of FTX Germany.  Exciting time in Flightsim world in all areas.

You are right but is difficult to unterstand the counterparty... why loyalety don't paid.

I have the knowledge (l'm european) that North G. is less beautifull that South G.... But to help the invest of Australian orbx team for Europe, I acquired all their scenery of this zone... just when published.

A part in sceneries that is very less in simworld is Belgium... I hope this is the following step for orbx with the construction from north to southwest of european's countries.

France vfr negliged this land ;-) and frenchspeaking belgians are a little worry about ;-)

I wonder if anyone is complaining, who also bought the other Germany scenery, when it was on sale 44% off not that long ago?! ;)

I would be fine if Orbx gave a discount to people who already paid FULL price for Germany South.  That would be nice of them, I guess.  But, they are already giving amazing sales 2-3 times a year on their products.  I mean, how much nicer can they be!

I like to support a great company like Orbx, so I don't mind paying a bit more now and again.
