  1. I bought the London Scenary add-on pack through the ingame marketplace however I would like to get it on the Orbx Central app that I discovered after. Is there a way to get it there instead without repurchasing?
  2. When using central, I get product updates, for example today the Optica EA-7 had an update. Whereabouts do I find out what's been updated? Is the a changelog to view what's been done?
  3. I've recently changed Fsx Steam installation disk. Everything is working fine exept for the Vector Configurator. Orbx Central recognizes the right path of the installation but when I run the configurator it gives me this message. "No installed simulator was found...FTX Vector Configurator will now exit!" I've tried to unistall and reinstall Global Vector and Orbx Central but nothing changed. P.S. It happens also for Global Base and PrecipitFX Thank you in advance for any kind of help.
  4. Thank you to Orbx for providing LWSK as freeware. Unfortunately the Airport fails to install via Orbx Central into Prepar3d v4.5. Although the product has been added to my account, when I press "install", then choose Prepar3d I get "Error: Library file does not exist". I recently installed the Global Base Pack without any issues, so am dumbfounded by this error. It will be appreciate if you could advise how I can troubleshoot this issue. I am concerned that should I buy another product I may end up with the same issue. Regards
  5. Having trouble starting Orbx Central this morning, I've tried all that I can imagine, would love some assistance.

  7. Operating system: W10 Simulator: X11.41 Screenshot: attached Issue: could not download and save the manifest I am facing the could not dowload and save the manifest error. I have tried reinstalling a few times and using the fast version deactivating antivirus and windows defender launching program as administrator before every action moving Orbx folder to the same drive as the xplane folder (g: drive) trying all possible locations for library folder, temporary location and back up sync to the simulator before every action creating the folder missing and even adding the scenery.ini [ERROR] Custom Scenery is missing (G:\Orbx\xp11\Orbx Libraries\Custom Scenery) any help is appreciated i am quite desperate thanks central.log
  8. Operating system: Windows 10 64 bit Simulator: Xplane 11 Screenshot: Log.txt Issue: On starting Orbx central and selecting True Earth GB Central, download starts as normal but then freezes OR will crash before reaching 23%. Similar results for TE GB North & South. All required pre-requisites are in place.
  9. Operating system: Window 10 Simulator: PD3v4 Screenshot: Issue: I love the DISCOVER page in Orbx Central. I found quite a few free airports to install. The airports installed are colored PURPLE, the ones for purchase are in RED, and the GRAY ones are free. However, there are 4 airports with the gray icon that are not free. The airports are ESKS, EGPN, LEEDS, and LGKO. You may want to update the color to RED.
  10. Operating system: Windows 10 Simulator: Prepar3d v4.5 Screenshot: ORBX Central in the menu bar Issue: Orbx central launches, normally and I can see that ORBX central is open as the central logo is in the task bar. However, when I click on the "preview screen" nothing happens, as if the program window doesn't exist. I try to actually go into central the main program window doesn't expand or open up. I've reinstalled multiple times, run as admin, I have a single monitor so there is no way orbx is launching on "another display". Any suggestions? I've reinstalled Prepar3d and I need to get all my scenery installed... please help!
  11. Operating system: Win 10 1909 (19363.592) Simulator: P3D v4.5 (13.32097) Screenshot: Issue: Having had a start up problem with P3D Sim Director I have uninstalled P3D client, content, scenery and Orbx Central (4.00.33) even the Orbx appdata\roaming folders had to go. With the CPU overload / Sim Director problem solved, I am reinstalling Orbx, it seems central is creating a new add on file called scenery_add-ons.xml located in Program Data\Lockheed\Martin, there were duplicate entries for my Orbx installation in this new file and also the standard add-ons.xml file - hence the CPU overload hang I believe. For some reason every time I boot up P3D now I am asked if I want to "Enable Orbx......" With every Orbx add on package, as I install more, the messages are growing, one for each package as the newly added packages are added to the list. central.log
  12. Hello, After a full (Client, Content, Scenery) reinstall of P3Dv4.5, does the "Verify Files" feature in Orbx Central (v4.0.33) do the "required tasks" outlined in Elaine's fantastic document. Many thanks.
  13. Hi, I am trying to download the GB south scenery package from Orbx Central, but whenever I go to install the product, I get a message saying "A Communication Error as occurred while trying to perform this action." I have restarted the app, my computer and my network, but the error message persists. Also, the first time I tried to download this, it all went well. The download got to about 50% before Orbx central quit or crashed, and now the download has reset and I get this error message. Is there anything to do to fix this issue?

  14. Hello fellow simmers. A while ago I discovered Orbx and their products, I started by installing Orbx Central on my Ubuntu 18.04LTS Linux desktop and play around a bit with the free stuff (Orbx Libraries, SAM) and a few airports like EGNX. EGNX is installed in X-Plane's 'Custom Scenery' folder via Orbx Central. Please not that all TE scenery is the SD version and X-Plane is located on a SSD while I created an Orbx Library on a 2TB HDD. I installed the TE scenery in this library. The following airports were directly installed in X-Plane: - EGNX - ENHA - ENOV This month I have bought all of the TE scenery that is available for X-Plane: TE GB (all of them) and the US west coast. I am currently installing all of the TE US scenery. My 'problem' is that Orbx Central is not showing EGNX as installed although it really is. It looks like Orbx is looking at stale or wrong information about everything that is installed in X-Plane directly. I write 'everything', because SAM and the Orbx Library were also missing. I fixed those by deleting them and reinstalling them. After which I noticed that nothing that is directly installed is reported like that in Orbx Central. Is there a fix for this incorrect reporting of Orbx installed products? edit: Please note that I have not added a log.txt or scenery_packs.ini because I feel this is an Orbx Central issue. Sorry if this has been asked before, I scanned the forum for alike questions and checked the Central User Guide before posting.

  15. Operating system: Win10 64 bit Simulator: X-plane 11.40 ORBX Central Log file: attached Screenshot: Attached below Issue: ORBX Central indicates an update to Washington HD. However it says I have to uninstall SD first. But I haven't go SD installed. See both screenshots attached. It's a Catch 22 and I'm unsure how to fix it. Can I have some advice please? BTW this also happened with the previous Central version - I waited for the latest update to see if that fixed it. The scenery and Xplane both work flawlessly. I have only the one Xplane installation. My scenery runs from a large storage drive linked symbolically to my Custom Scenery folder. I've searched on these fora but am unable to pinpoint a solution. Thank you. central.log
  16. I am down loading southern england scenery from orbx .com useing central, for xplane 11.40 on mac os 10.12.6.Having problems,downloads but will not extract and install,need help.
  17. Hello, Can any one please advise the following:- 1/ In Orbx Central how or is it possible to disable scenery as you can FTX Central to improve FPS for example in FTX Central you can un tick certain regions /airports etc as an example if flying in UK you could disable all other scenery? 2/ In orbx Central how do you activate scenery from other developers such as Gurnsey from 2000 uk as an example. 3/ in Orbx Central how do you adjust vector to take account of airports where altitude revisions have to be made, as in FTX Central you can make those adjustments. Any help much appreciated Charlie
  18. Detail Operating system: Windows 10 Simulator: Xplane 11 Screenshot: Issue: appears to download compressed file but won't install. Several months ago, I purchased the entire True Earth GB series. I couldn’t install with FTX Central, and although I followed some suggestions posted on the forum, nothing worked. Finally, it was suggested I download Central, which I did. I still can’t enjoy my scenery and am really frustrated and disappointed. Central was supposed to solve installation issues, well it hasn’t for me. I added a 4TB hard drive to my system which I use only for Xplane (my D drive). I created a separate library folder on my C drive. I even tried a manual download and install, but Central still won’t install. It appears to download and possibly open the compressed files, but then won’t convert them. I tried with all of the scenery packages, with the same result; none showed a successful install. Log and screen shot attached. Please just tell me how I can enjoy my scenery, I have spent many hours trying to install it. central log.zipcentral log.zip

  21. There seems to be a common thread in many of the posts here and in the XP help forum regarding the dds files in the orthos/textures folders of TE products, causing XP to shut down. From my perspective the failure appears to be that the jpg files are downloaded but never converted to .dds. I have, as have many others, been referred to Nick’s help post from November 2018, which essentially asks that we run the verify commands until a successful download/conversion occurs. That post and other posts have indicated that the conversion process can take many, many hours. I have run verify about 6 times, always with the following results (and, of course, the shutdown of XP): 1. The orthos/textures folder always contains only 224 png files, no dds. 2. During the install process, jpg files are downloading to the textures folder. 3. There appears to be no conversion from jpg to dds. 4. The download progress indicator goes up to 133% (!!!) at which point Central then says that the product is fully installed. I’m way out of my depth here, desperately in need of assistance! thanks Arne
  22. Hello, I just purchased Northern Rockies but note recommendation to download useing ORBX CENTRAL however when i click on it nothing happens other than a box telling me to find an app in the microsoft store or down load manualy although not recommended what should I do? Charlie McEwan
  23. I understand the team have been working hard beta testing Orbx Central and we have been provided with manual updates and instructions for elevation fix's etc for the Australia V2 airports. But I'm preferring to wait until Orbx Central is released (just in case I muck things up). The initial expected release of Orbx Central is now well past (but understand it has to be got right being so central to product management) but can the team provide an estimated release update? I'm on P3Dv4. Thanks Neil Operating system: Simulator: Screenshot: Issue:
  24. Hello all, I’ve been having an issue with orbx gb central. The tile that stretches from Lancaster to Manchester doesn’t load so I have a default scenery tile in the middle of gb central. It was there before I moved all the orbx files down in the .ini file however, before I moved them the tile (and all others) only displayed the ortho imagery not houses wind turbines and roads I had the same issue with ortho4xp and I don’t know how to fix it. any help would be appreciated thanks, J.Kirby
