This is incredible news! Welcome back Bill! I have always been a fan of his work and love what he did with 7S3 Starks Twin Oaks as well as KMCW Cushman Meadows. This is exciting! :D

Very good news.  I have all the iBlue Yonder products and having them integrated in FTX Central will make updating much easier.  Some very admired sceneries have not been updated, as the developers have died or gone on to other activities.  Perhaps Orbx can negotiate to bring those products into the fold and convert them for the new sims.

That is wonderful news. I enjoy his products hugely and they are exactly the type of airfields in which Orbx also excels. With the added benefit of object and peopleflow his airfields will surely enhance the Orbx catalog both now and into the future. Great decision and wonderful news both for him, you, and us all. Welcome back Bill.

Super excited about this.  I had always been interested in these products but like a goofball stayed away because I didn't want to deal with a hodge podge of sceneries from different organizations and the possible conflicts they could possibly bring

Does this mean we'll get some people walking about at Nantucket? :) Super.

That would be great! Plum Island and Minute Man too!  Hope there's truth to the rumor that B42 Good speeds is in the works. No matter. Whatever Bill does with Orbx will be wonderful, and I  can't wait.  This is good news!

Interesting! Given Arno Gerretson's well documented involvement in the production techniques for Nantucket, developing the capabilities of ScenProc, (his utility that has expanded to include PR functions as well as just autogen), I wonder if this is linked to Orbx's strategic move into developing PR regions?? Looking forward to seeing what the future brings.... :)

What about ORBX customers that purchased previous Womack designs from ORBX, but purchased Nantucket from a third party vendor.

 

"to celebrate we will be holding a ‘Bill’s Back!’ special discount on all his airports for Orbx customers and also providing a free license transfer service for all iBlueYonder.com customers who will be able to transfer their previous purchases from iBlueYonder to OrbxDirect and also benefit from new PeopleFlow and ObjectFlow upgrades to their airports”.

Not related at all Kevin, pure speculation on your part. The driver for photoreal has been the development of new tech both in-house and by licensing it.

Cool OK.  Whatever you've got cooking its looking good anyway :)

This is excellent.  So should I buy Plum Island And Nantucket from his site or will these be for sale soon in FTX?  I'm confused.  Sorry. :unsure:

I know JV said he'd be offering a discount so I don't know if I should wait for the discount, wait for them to be for sale through FTX, or buy the like right now asI have the $ for them.
