Orbx FTX Central 3 Updated to


Since Orbx have released FTX Central 3 and their Orbx Direct store, I have been actively using it to download and buy new products. Since it’s release, it has been highly regarded and Orbx seem relatively happy with the stability of the software.

Of course, nothing is ever perfect, so Orbx have updated FTX Central to version which adds a few new features as well as fixes some bugs from before.
