ORBX End-of-Year Sale

Recommended Posts

I still have only a modest computer comparatively.

i7 2600K at 3.4 using 64 bit Windows 7.

They all require manipulation of airport settings in varying degrees.  Either because of location or hi-res textures.  Sonoma County makes the biggest hit on my computer.

I want to buy the ORBX Nor/So California sceneries but I've been reading about horrible FPS drops with them 😥

FTX or TrueEarth?

If it's NA NorCal and NA SoCal (landclass) then follow my suggestion here:

Plus, you can turn off some other performance-degrading objects such as powerlines, oil refineries, etc. to push up the FPS you can get.

 

For TrueEarth, you don't get any say. Unlike the earlier TE Netherlands and TE GB, there aren't options to turn off objects for TE NorCal or SoCal.

Your PC looks good enough to run either TE or NA versions of California. Just be ready to turn some of the sliders down a notch in P3D's settings pages.

I don't think 30% off is bad. But here I am planning to buy FSimStudios' Vancouver through Orbx which is only 10% off which saves me a whole $3.60 by going from $36 to $32.40 (AUD that is). 😄

It's not that 30% discount is bad. Any discount for customers is always welcome. I even used 20-25% sales a few times.
It's that ORBX generously got us used to 50% discounts for years and we have been heavily buying (at least me) with, I believe, advantage for both sides.
And now this nice tradition breaks, especially when one could expect some very beneficial P3D scenery discounts in times of MSFS business.

Having said that, ORBX still belongs to the best discount offerers around and big thanks to them.
Just a point of view to show why I think some could feel somehow dissapointed. Me included.

Thanks Rich, I don't see where I mentioned Nantucket.  In any case, Nantucket has good performance, one of the best Orbx airports I've purchased.  

Happy flying.
