The new FTX Central


Recommended Posts

Will download managers still work with the updates, etc.?

Joe.

 

I think you can configure (state path) of your favorite download manager and  FTX Central will trigger it properly. Well so it is with most software that open this possibility.  ;)

We're working on having 3-4 concurrent connections to our servers in the background so you get even faster downloads. The biggest single benefit of FTXCv2 is the delta-update function where for example a tiny single-file update to Orbxlibs would be downloaded in seconds, seamlessly - or any other airport or region patches would download only the new files needed.

Hello Ben,
- it would be great if we can open the manual and control panel of an airport at the same time. Which is not possible FTXCv1

- acces to the ORBX forum via standard browser

- acces to all ORBX tools (like to the FTX Vector Configurator or FTX GLOBAL Lights Configurator)
- resizable window
- minor thing: a nice background would be great :) Like this one: https://www.fullterrain.com/assets/product/p16/Uj7CXE_FTXG_banner.jpg

This is great, one suggestion, can we have a colour or some letters on the icon so we can see on the desktop which region is active e.g. Oceania could be green, Europe Blue etc.

Or Oc or Eu in small letters.

Then we would not have to open FTX Central to see which region we had last selected.

Thanks

Ken

If you download the update via FTX Central (i.e., using the built in updater), then your download manager won't work (however, as mentioned previously, I'm building many of the features that a download manager has into FTXC). However, you can use FTX Central to just give you notifications about the new updates and then download them via the website like usual.

Already in V2

- acces to the ORBX forum via standard browser

I'm not sure what you mean by this, but there is a link to the support forums in the "troubleshooting" section (the link will open in your default browser).

This is on my list of things to do, so it will most likely be in the final version.

Holey moley,  that is stunning GUI looks a great evolution reflecting the new fullterrain website features. Looks like a vast array great new features, only two questions remain.


Q1: How many pickled peppers did Peter Piper actually pick


Q2: How many pickled peppers to the peck

Amazing in so many ways. This will save everyone a significant amount of time and stress. THANK YOU.


 


Any chance the region/airport list will include items NOT installed? Maybe grayed-out. Maybe on another tab? It would be extremely convenient to have a simple list of everything available. This feature could easily translate in to more sales if each linked directly to the product page.


 


I look forward to this release in any state, as I am confident Orbx will improve its functionality over time.
