Please correct me if I'm wrong, but as I understand it, Orbx Central was created amongst other things to alleviate the problem for some users having to create symbolic links as their disks were becoming filled up with Orbx sceneries (as was my case) without being able to move them to another drive. Prior to Orbx Central, I was using FTX Central and Junction Link Magic to create a symbolic link to move my Orbx sceneries directory out of my P3D drive (R:.) to my drive (H:) I own every single Orbx product relative to FSX and P3D and this consumed 528.17gb of my P3D drive. Like many other simmers I have created multiple scenery.cfg files, one for North America, one for Europe and one for Oceania as I don't quite see the point of having to load in every piece of Orbx scenery (which takes around 45 minutes to load) when I only want to fly in a particular region. This setup, together with the symbolic link worked for me with no problems whatsoever. I then decided to purchase LYBE Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport and did so in FTX Central. It was not until I went to install it, that FTX Central advised me I had no sceneries to install. I then learnt that I could only install the scenery via Orbx Central. I installed Orbx Central then installed LYBE and EGLC that I had purchased earlier. I then decided to migrate all of my Orbx Products to my T: drive and this is when all of problems started. In FSX Central, whenever you purchased an Orbx product, the scenery.cfg in C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3d v4\ would be automatically updated, but not using Orbx Central. Eventually I found a scenery.cfg in my C:\Programdata\Virtual\Couatl\ directory which appeared to be relatively up to date. However, I then had to manually edit all 417 lines in the scenery.cfg which took 2 days approximately and I don't work slowly. As I explained earlier, I migrated every one of my Orbx sceneries to my T: drive. I then loaded P3D and as it was loading it kept on asking me if I wanted to add each and every piece of scenery to my library (I'm not sure what this meant but I pressed "Yes" to add them to the library. At the end of this process I discovered that I now had all of my sceneries in separate directories in T: \Orbx\p3dv4 directory and a duplication of all of the sceneries in T:\Orbx\p3dv4\p3dv4 which now takes up 2 x 528.17gb and this equates to 1.56tb. I restarted P3D v4.2 and chose 1WA6 Fall City Airport as my starting airport. As P3D was loading, an error message came up on the screen stating "Path Not Found R:\Prepar3d V4\Orbx\FTX_NA\FTX_AA_O60\Scenery\*_objectflow.xml. So now I am unable to use P3D at all. I then searched in the O60 directory and discovered 3 x .xml's relating to 1WA6, 2 were in connection with the 2 x animated airplanes at the airport and another. I took the opportunity to copy those 3 .xml files to my 1WA6 directory but have not at the time of writing had time to test it again to see if it works. I am assuming that if there is a problem with 1WA6, then there will also be a problem relating to .xml files at every other airport. I am now totally exasperated with Orbx and I am contemplating using only FTX Central. The only problem if I do revert back to FTX Central, is that I will be unable to make any further purchases from Orbx because if I did buy anything, I would not be able to install it. My 2 main areas of complaint are firstly, that why does Orbx Central not create a Scenery,cfg in C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3d v4\ and secondly why does Orbx Central create 2 copies of every single piece of Orbx scenery, when only one is required. There is a long way to go before I am convinced that Orbx Central is of the same quality as FTX Central. Any help regarding these matters would be gratefully appreciated.
