Orbx Releases All Airports for Prepar3D V4

Img 5985e37285fa9

It may have taken a few months, but Orbx have finally released all their existing airports to be compatible with version 4 of Prepar3D. They were one of the first developers to support V4 with the release of their FTX Global range, but fans have been waiting to fly to their fantastic airports. Bilbao (LEBB) and Kern Valley (L05) have been available for a few weeks, and now you can head back to places like Dubrovnik (LDDU), San Diego (KSAN) and Innsbruck (LOWI).

If you haven’t been following the story, the delay has been down to the fact that Orbx have been busy developing the second version of their ObjectFlow. ObjectFlow brings with it some of the unique features only found with Orbx airports. It’s a large update for Orbx and brings with it some big new features. For now, it’s in “open-beta”, but up to a good enough standard for customers to use

In conjunction with the open beta release, Orbx has launched Fastlane. This is an opt-in program that allows FTX Central to receive updates early.

It is a requirement to opt into Fastlane to get the ObjectFlow update and thereby all your Orbx airports in P3D v4.

To opt into Fastlane, follow the instructions given by Ben over on the announcement post.

If we have any further information, we’ll be the first to let you know.
