  1. Yes you are correct, you can install Orbx to any location on any drive and it will be automatically symbolic linked to xplane. In the Orbx central application, go to settings on the top right, then select libraries on the left menu. From there you can create a library with the location on your new drive. Then when you go to install a product, you can choose the library and it will store it there and link everything automatically.
  2. I find smaller aircraft harder to takeoff and land, mainly because the controls are more sensitive and responsive, and the wind has a greater affect on them. The larger planes i.e. turboprops I find a bit easier. That might just be me though.
  3. Yes, this is true. But they are not updated with the level of detail that the individual payware airports are. In my opinion it depends exactly what you want to do: If you want to get very high detail of a smaller area, then I would suggest a region and a few payware airports. (Orbx does have some free individual ones that are similar quality to the payware found on the freeware page of the website). Or if you want to improve a very large area with a less detailed (but still good) improvement then FTX global would probably be good. In my opinion if you are just looking to make a visual improvement then Vector is not neccicary, as others have said it just alters roads and shorelines to make them more accurate, but unless you are trying to compare something to the real world its not that important.
  4. They almost always do some sale this time of year. But its always at a different exact time. Maybe it will be more of a new years sale... I don't think they do gift cards but if I am not mistaken one could always purchase a visa prepaid gift card that could be used anywhere as a credit card could be...
  5. @Nick Cooperis right, if I recall, the discount for pre owned products is not applicable if there is a discount otherwise. Sort of like you can't compound two discounts together.
  6. I remember some airports in the 2018 roadmap (or maybe it was 2019) that are still not completed......
  7. I think the idea is to make it seem as much like a mac as possible. I don't really like it, if its too much like apple then its not windows. But I guess they don't care about us people who actually like functionality, they're too focused on the majority of people who want it to look pretty.
  8. There is also a map in the Orbx central application under the discover tab on top. I didnt realize there was one on the orbxdirect website, thats pretty cool. I thought it was only in Central.
  9. Considering the price of a payware 787, I'd say especially if its freeware.
  10. It is very amazing! I'm very surprised the planes actually stayed together. I'd be curious to figure out what parts of them actually interlocked causing them not to separate.
  11. No expert here, but are you using a VPN? If so maybe that could create the time issue, if the time of your computer does not match the time of the ip adress that your VPN is using? I have no idea what I am talking about, but just a thought I had. Also, what happens if you click "advanced"? Maybe that would reveal a "proceed anyway" button or the like.
