UPDATE: Orbx FTX Global OpenLC South America Now Available

Ftx Openlc South America P3dv4 1

Update: Orbx have released FTX Global OpenLC South America. As expected, it costs $54.95AUD. Furthermore, Orbx have released a new freeware openLC Mesh for South America.

openLC South America requires good mesh and is a must have if you do not have any 3rd party mesh for this area installed.

Over on Facebook, Orbx has confirmed that FTX Global OpenLC South America is on “short final” and will be released this week. Over the past few weeks, Orbx screenshot artists Iain and John have been posting multiple preview topics showing how vast the product is. We shared some of these images as well, so make sure you take a look.

Further to that, the product page is up, which details what you can expect from their latest OpenLC product. Of course, the entire area is covered with plenty of new textures, 3D lighting and even photoreal volcanoes. Whilst the price isn’t confirmed, we’re guessing it will fall in-line with other OpenLC products, meaning it will set you back $54.95 AUD. In the mean time, check out some more previews and the feature list below.

We’ll update this post once it’s released.

Massive Orbx Update – OpenLC NA, ORBX Store and More

ORBX night lights

John Venema from ORBX has updated the community with a HUGE range of topics that are currently on-going at ORBX HQ. I will briefly summarise each below, but you can check out the full thread over at the ORBX forums.

FTX Central V2.1 Migration

Orbx recently updated FTX Central to sync up all of your Orbx scenery so you don’t have to keep chopping and changing scenery. However, out of the 8,000 people who have updated, 1-2% have had some issues. Orbx delivering as usual have been working hard on a diagnostics tool to help people understand what the issues are, and what Orbx need to do to fix it.

It’s coming along nicely and an update will be inbound soon.

P3Dv3 Airport Ports

This is nearly done, and the last of the airports will soon be with us. Remember that this is probably the last time we’ll get free installer updates.

OpenLC North America

Beta testing is going well, with everything matching Google Maps very well. Their new night lighting will also come packed with the installer, which will also update OpenLC NA Alaska/Canada.

If you’ve already purchased NA Alaska/Canada, then you’ll be entitled to an AU$22.50 discount for the rest of the US. Not bad, not bad.
