Ok good to have only Orbx Products

FTX Central used to install everything inside the P3D root folder, there are yet some products that need to be installed inside the root folder when using the new Central

But first, the new Central offers you the possibility of installing the products outside the P3D root folder or inside the P3D root folder or migrate them. As you said, if it is not broken then leave it as it is. I mean you don't need to migrate the products, that is a choice. And if you prefer to continue installing inside P3D that is fine too. The option to install outside is just for people who are running out of space in the disk, or prefer to install in another drive or whatever, what I mean is that you are not force to installed outside except for some products. These are The Objects flow, and some specific airports like Kos, & KSUN, and for now the TrueEarth Great Britain Libraries but I've heard this will change.

In order for these products to install you need to create a "library". This library can be created in any drive of your preference. It seems you had this one as stated by Nick:

C:\Users\FLIGHT SIM\Orbx Library

If you have uninstalled Central then you might like to delete that library and create a new one.

Let's download a fresh installer of Central and run it


Do all your installed products show in Central when you open it?

I hope so


Now lets create that new folder we need for the objects flow. You go here:


Oh boy, the new Central is out now :)


Ok then you go here to the nut/screw.. then to libraries on the left and then in the wide screen on the right you create you library




As you can see I already have one that shows in my disc like this, I simply named it Orbx and inside Central created the p3cv4 one like this:




Inside that one you'll see the products that currently must be installed outside P3D root


If you still show this folder there: C:\Users\FLIGHT SIM\Orbx Library better delete it as suggested by Nick and let's create a new one. Make up a name and above all select the drive where you want it to be.


As you can see I have P3D installed in drive H

When I tried to create the library here there was a warning that the disc needs to be empty, don't freak out. What I did was to create the Orbx folder and then pointed Central to it. and voila.


Now, after you purchase a product you'll see a big message in blue that reads install

When you install a new product Central will show you this window:




Here you must chose if you want to continue installing your products within P3D root folder like this:




The old FTX Central style



In the folder you just created




When the product must be installed in this folder the installer won't offer you the option to chose so it must go here.


Now you would be ready to install all your new products


It is really easy, it is just that new stuff pisses us off because we are too used to the very know old style but once you get it it will be a peace of cake


Some additional info

If you just move to Central ensure there is no Object folder inside "Documents" tab in your desk top, if there is delete it and install through central.

If any black textures or so just run the verification files tool of each product, if by any reason is not solved then verify the Open land classes and if yet something looks weird uninstall and reinstall Global Base.

Also ensure your Orbx libraries are updated


I wish you manage to solve it, believe me, it looks too much talking but it is very simple after you get familiar to it


So let's do it and let us know how well you did

It appears you have two accounts.


The account you're logged into has the 10 freeware items in it. Your other account has 40 products in it.


Please log out of Orbx Central (Settings -> Account -> Log Out), then log in with the same email that you've used here on this forum (it ends in @mail.com).
