You first need to download ORBX Central from the ORBX website. I think (verify this at their forums first) you should need to uninstall FTX Central 3.0 (its name is not ORBX Central, but FTX Central).

ORBX Central started with v4.0.0. ORBX Central current version is v4.0.39 (official) and v4.1.1 (fastlane-beta). I would suggest opting-in for the fastlane (beta), so you'll have frequent updates and improvements.

You don't need to uninstall FTX Central first but it's recommended. I'd leave it installed until you are sure ORBX Central is installed properly and working.

I think its necessary:

Personally I have problem with ObjectFlow in ORBX Central 4. Dont know why because everything looks ok:

Example:

I dont see all ObjectFlow addons like Flow People or most static airplane, more grass ect. using stable 4.0.39 version.

I'll check this Fastlane option.

On my system, ORBX Central says ObjectFlow 2 is installed Ok, and that's located in the main P3D folder, but I'm not able no physically see it. Someone knows how to look at it?.

What do you mean by "see it"? The files are in your Orbx library.

I mean to see the file (or files) itself, if there's any.

Thanks, Ed

ABSOLUTELY.  Keep FTX for a while (just in case).  Generally, no problems with ORBX Central.  But when you do finally delete version 3, you won't have the opportunity to download it again should you want to.

Has anyone else noticed this?...no matter how many times I do the update for SODE, the next time I open ORBX Central, the update keeps showing up! No problems updating any other products, just SODE. Using V4.11, but it's been happening in all previous versions.

Did you installed SODE using ORBX Central or directly with the SODE installer?. I did installed SODE using its own installer and SODE is working normally (new version 1.6.6, as I remember) and actually I'm not paying attention at what ORBX Central says.

I used ORBX Central. Where is the actual SODE installer located?
