Cityscene Orbx Orlando (8)

Over on their Forum, Orbx has announced that they’ve released an update to their popular Orlando CityScene add-on.

Turbulent Designs Job Opportunity

Turbulentdesigns Jobs

Turbulent Designs on their Facebook page has announced they are expanding and have therefore opened a new job position. All that is required is some past experience creating products for either FSX/P3D or X-Plane. The well-known developer says that it can offer both full-time  work at their office in Hampshire, United Kingdom, as well as possible part-time/contract work for those that live further away.

This is an exciting opportunity to build on the existing skills individuals have, whilst working with a brilliant team. If you wish to apply for the role, all you need to do is drop Turbulent Designs an email at [email protected]. Remember to give examples of projects/products you have worked on in the past and if possible links to these projects/products.


Turbulent Designs has chimed in on this:

There is an awful lot of speculation in the comments here.

Turbulent Designs is still an independent developer with independent products both in the entertainment side of flight simulation and the commercial side.

When Turbulent Designs recruits, it has nothing to do with Orbx, and vise versa.

You can see the statement in our comment section below.
