Ben McClintock Posted September 5, 2019 Share Posted September 5, 2019 Hi all, We have just released Orbx Central version 4.0.12 to Fastlane users. We have fixed a lot issues that users were experiencing, along with a few quality of life improvements. To revisit the issues identified in the previous update post: Global openLC fallback texture locationThe status of this issue is unchanged since v4.0.10. We are still working with Lockheed Martin on this issue. In the meantime, if your copy of Orbx Global BASE is installed in the simulator (i.e., not in a "library"), you will not experience this issue. More insertion point / layering choice We have now introduced an "advanced layering" mode to Orbx Central. This is a complete re-write of the scenery layering code to make it more robust, scaleable, and to fix some issues that users have encountered. If you experienced issues with morphing textures when openLC products are enabled, this will help order those entries correctly. ------------------------------- Advanced Layering This update introduces the option to use a new advanced layering system. This system aims to address community feedback regarding the current Orbx Central layering system. It provides much more accurate layering of Orbx products, and also allows for third-party add-on.xml based products. It can be enabled in Settings -> Insertion Point. This system is still experimental and we're looking for feedback! Let us know your thoughts in the Orbx Central Support Forum. If you encounter any of the following issues, we recommend trying this new system: openLC not being layered correctly in some circumstances Strange texture behaviour when using openLC and Orbx Regions Error after running 'Sync Simulator' Missing scenery.cfg entries after installation Incorrect layering of Orbx products ------------------------------- Opting-in to Fastlane This version of Orbx Central will first be distributed to Fastlane users. We are doing this as we've introduced quite a few changes to core components (such as scenery layering). If you are already opted-in to Fastlane, the next time you start Orbx Central you will receive the 4.0.12 update. If you are not opted-in to Fastlane, you can do so from Settings -> Account -> Fastlane, or from the page on our website. ------------------------------- The changelog for Orbx Central v4.0.12 is below. You can also access the changelog within Orbx Central by going to Settings -> Changelog.
