  1. Great news! I'll definitely get it when it's released. Gonna do my first round the world flight when the whole openLC puzzle is finished.
  2. Milviz PC-6 for sure. Took first flight in Mauritania last night with the Carenado Short S330 actually. Somehow fits in africa, rugged transport aircraft. Also the Dornier 228 would fit I think.
  3. Looks great but how will I be able to fly in with my Learjet on gps without the navdata? I mean, that airport is actually TOO new.
  4. Fantastiskt Marcus! Landvetter is the airport I´ve flown to and from the most so far in real life. I wouldn´t call Gothenburg a "winter wonderland" though, we usually get "grey" winters there lol! Anyway, day one purchase! Best regards, Andreas
  5. Yeah, that VRAM usage (if you turn up TEXTURE_SIZE_EXP) will cost a lot of people a lot of money. Personally I can't afford in anything above 8GB VRAM or up right now and I'm not upgrading to P3D 64-bit since it won't make any difference in visual fidelity on my current rig. Maybe in a few years when 8GB+ cards are lower-mid range and affordable. Too much of an investment atm plus I'd have to upgrade my RAM too since 8GB won't cut it any more. No hurries, no worries.
  6. Poor Emmsie, best wishes to you and the nearest and dearest...and Rollo. Your house didn't burn down, that's something positive at least. Wait a second, the pub burnt down?! Ooh the humanity! Cheers!/Andreas
  7. I submitted a request for a full refund for all my Orbx purchases, since I haven't been able to use them for almost a month soon, a few days ago. I still haven't got any response, how long does it usually take? Cheers!/Andreas
  8. This is exactly how I feel and think about all of this. Very mixed feelings. Fantastic products, everything else: totally horrible. Not only the lack of paypal option but also the fact I have to use an extra VPN service -which I refuse- to even download my purchased products. I could live with JV's ramblings in the past because, well, just ignore them really but now issues are really piling up. Hope for a better 2017 but not expecting it. Happy New Year! (hopefully)/Andreas
  9. Hi Richard, thanks for the tip. All other web related services are working just fine full speed for me. Only FTX Central and Orbxdirect.com are giving me grief. I only need to look at my router lights when trying to download something from Orbx, not even a blink. If there were MS updates clogging up my bandwidth, I would've noticed. Cheers!/Andreas
  10. Glad it works for you, any downloads I try be it manual or through FTX Central gives me estimated download times that range from 1-2 weeks. I have 24Mbit dsl. I can get around it via VPN but then I'd have to pay for a VPN service subscription and that isn't happening. Hope they fix the problem soon. Cheers!/Andreas
  11. Since FTX Central 3 continues to be an absolute disaster for downloading purchased Orbx products, would it be possible to download the Orbx libraries manually from somewhere else instead through FTX Central? /Andreas
  12. A lot of people have and are still having download and installation issues with their purchased Orbx products. For any doubters, just head over to the FTX Central support forum and behold the endless pages filled with red unresolved topics. I'm a grown-up and usually patient person so I don't expect problems as big as these to get fixed overnight, however, it would be nice to hear from JV or someone else who might be working directly with the issue if they have at least identified what the main cause(s) of the problem might be and MAYBE an approximate time of having it fixed. I'm well aware that these are holiday times but to speak frankly, if you can't do support then don't keep the shop open. I find it a bit arrogant that you have no problem charging for things you can't deliver, even if it is just for a handful of people. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas/Andreas
  13. Sadly I, and others, haven't been able to download anything from FTX Central or the Orbxdirect website for a while now thanks to issues the Orbx support staff are unable to pin down or solve. It seems to be something with my ISP, Sonera, as others have managed to "bypass" the problem using VPN services. I don't see this as a viable or permanent solution so I guess I'll just have to wait and check back after new year or something. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all! /Andreas
  14. Alright, I don't even have a download speed. I'm just trying to narrow the problem down. I get that there are people with slow download speed during Orbx sales, it's more rule than exception but some of us can't even get the download started which is unacceptable. Cheers!/Andreas
  15. Which country do you live and what is your internet service provider? Cheers!/Andreas
  16. Welcome to the club! You should start a topic in the FTX Central Support forum, not that there aren't enough of similar topics already though. I've noticed that it's predominantly Swedish and / - or Finnish customers that have this problem. If I'm not mistaken, all Finnish internet traffic goes through Sweden and that might be part of the explanation why customers from both countries are affected.
  17. The problem isn't at your end! that's BS! The manual installation from the orbxdirect.com website is just as slow or not downloading at all. HEAR THIS ORBX!: BOTH FTX CENTRAL AND MANUAL DOWNLOADING ARE IMPOSSIBLY SLOW OR NOT WORKING AT ALL!
  18. Hi Teo and welcome to the forums. I'm in the same situation as you, I actually reinstalled Windows 10 yesterday, for other reasons, and just started FTX Central and it still takes a long time to log in and downloads are impossibly slow. Orbx have acknowledge that there is a problem but they don't know what the actual problem is, yet. We just have to wait. I would advice you to not buy anything more at the moment, until you know that you can actually download what you've paid for. /Andreas
  19. Thanks for the tip Tim! As soon as FTXC allows me to download my Orbx products, I will try it.
