Orbx Compatibility update Prepar3d V4 – Release Tomorrow

Update
OrbX has jut announced that they will release the updated FTX Central 3.2.x.x hopefully tomorrow and when you run it you will see the Apply Update button.

 

Orbx have given us some more insight in what products will be compatible with Prepar3d V4 once it releases, and how to obtain said updates for our new sim.

Products that will be compatible with P3DV4 right away are:

  • Orbxlibs
  • Global Base Pack
  • openLC North America & openLC Europe
  • All Region Packs (Southern Alaska and New Zealand North make use of ObjectFlow, which won’t work yet. The regions themselves are)

To install these sceneries you will require FTX Central V3.2.x.x, which will hopefully be pushed out by Orbx tomorrow. P3DV4 won’t be compatible with older versions of FTX Central. To install your products, we recommend you follow the guide as mentioned in this article. Note that you should not be copying files yourself!

Furthermore Orbx gives us some more insight in products that are not (yet) compatible. These products mainly consist of the airport addons we have all come to love. Most of these airports don’t work because of the PeopleFlow which will simply require some more work from Orbx. These addons will become available overtime as Orbx ports over PeopleFlow to Prepar3d V4 to ensure a good experience with their airports. An exact timeline hasn’t been given.

Unfortunately there is also some stuff that won’t be compatible any time soon (though, this was to be expected). The Orbx FTX Vector and Aero tool won’t work with P3DV4: new tools will be developed in the future to ensure to make them available again. The Lancair, Victa and Vans RV4 won’t work and won’t be made available in the future because developers have since moved on to new projects.

    it would be helpful if the article linked with THIS Article , was not locked with no viewing permissions , this guide may tell us what to do but gives us no help in doing it , orbx after all take a registration and a login to at least 5 websites just to view their stuff , let me explain , orbx direct , that fails to see the old fullterrain.com account, that then asks you to validate over at flight sim store , then this article tells us to veiw a orbxsystems.com forum that validates over steam THAT DID NOT WORK, good one orbx , when i finally find a native login for their forum in the 3 pages of passwords , i get YOU DO NOT HAVE PERMISSION , which might as well say article deleted ,
