Thanks for highlighting this. I think there is much to look forward to.
I invested heavily in FSX ORBX DVDs when that was the only way to get the scenery. After going toFTX Central, the “promise” of being able to automatically patch the DVD versions purchased at vendors other than The Flightsim Store, has not materialized (to put it mildly…they will happily allow you to repurchase the online versions…no thanks).
If (OK, when) I go to X-Plane 11, I do not think I will patronize ORBX for my enhanced scenery, especially if there are other options on the market.
I think I’m going to need a bigger SSD just for X-Plane. That might prompt me to just upgrade the entire system as there is no room for an additional drive in my compact case. 2019 isn’t going to be a cheap year it seems!
I’m so thoroughly impressed with the X-Plane offerings from OrbX so far. The UK scenery they have put out these past few months have been truly amazing. Just my luck that they will be doing the PNW next, which is a favorite area of mine to fly around. If they then move on to New Zealand, I’ll be broke.
