Orbx FTX Global VECTOR Released!

http://airdailyx.blogspot.com/2013/12/orbx-ftx-global-vector-released.html
FSX/P3D/P3Dv2. Ha! Orbx released the long awaited second edition of FTX Global titled VECTOR and it only missed Christmas by a few days. The fact that PILOT'S are on board as developers is the icing on the cake! Could this be the last big release before the end of year? We are all over this one and it's downloading as we speak so look forward to our coverage during the weekend. For now, head over and check it out! And yes, the P3Dv2 installer is included. Great stuff!
ADX Update>> Animated Comparison GIFs Added

And if you don't already own a copy of PILOT'S Global Mesh to go with the Global VECTOR release, we can highly recommend the boxed FS Global Ultimate mesh available here and the downloadable FS Global 2010 mesh available here

Hi DAndre! Could you please post a shot of downtown Budapest? Thank you!

Jerome Zimmermann said...

Hi Richárd,

I've complied some animated GIFs from Orbx's screenshots, and one shows Hungary, that's all I can do for now.

Best regards,

Jerome

Hi Jerome!

Thanks for your effort! I'm really excited about the AirDailyX® FirstLook™ :D

Pirx said...

Are you sure it is P3Dv2 compatible? How can we be sure it is P3Dv2 compatible? ...just joking!!! It is just for laughing a bit :)

Well, I will try it later. I hope cities like Barcelona, or London will have a better appearance.

Andreu said...

I'm another one interested seeing how Barcelona changes...

DAndre Newman said...

@ Richard, sure!

according to FTX forum members there are lots of errors esp. in Detroit.

highly disappointed with obrx.

Pirx said...

I have flown over some cities, like Barcelona. It is a bit better, now you can identify each beach and the port. There are some of the main streets, but you still can´t see from the sky the typical distribution of the streets making squares (as NY I think) -you can see it at google maps, it's quite impressive from above-.

Is it so difficult to get the streets data from any digital map? It would be great if Pilot or ORBX create some tools to allow the users to improve the sceneries they know best, and to share it with the comunity, as we share for exemple sky themes. This could be great.

Take note this is not a complain, I like each product that improve our sims, like this vector does. I am simply giving ideas. In general I think there is much to do in the way our sims show our cities.

I am a bit disapointed. The airport correction with Ultimate Europe need to be tune for Swizterland pro and Sion (LSGS). But work perfectly with FS Global 2010 with or without Vector.

Hoping for a kind of AFM Tools.

But overall. I am please with all these products.

Sorry,

Forget to tell that it is for P3D v2

As far as i know, ORBX/FSPilot didn't inlude every small street. So the streets won't cut the textures.

Sid said...

Like your post Pirx :-) Some good points and ideas...and constructive too :-)

Skipper said...

Really a huge task here, and we got whiners, Funny. there is always going to be growing pains, with ever developer. Way too early in the game to start crapping all over it. Got it, works great, works even better when UTX hit the bin. Not every place in 100%, ORBX came right out and told everyone that there would be a service pack. Their support is great and their products are great. Don't like, don't buy. Kids theses days, really.

alot of people seem to have alot of problems with vectors, i havent noticed a single problem, i flew for 4 hours around indiana and didn't notice anything wrong.

Brett Culley said...

i couldn't help myself but went ahead and spent another 83.00 usd for pilots fs global that works with all the orbx layers, its gonna be such an exciting and relaxing feeling, anyone like me holing out for the landclass fs global is a great choice to go with ftx global and vectors until they are released over the next 2 years.

Kaman said...

Hey brett , can you tell me how you like fs global 2010 ftx version...? Thx alot in advance

Brett Culley said...

hey karman i would say it's the same one that was originally released back in 2010, but it does look much better than the default mesh does, the mountains and valleys look really good, 83 bucks was kinda expensive but worth it now that it will work with p3d v2, i daubt anything else will come out as good as fs global anytime soon

Kaman said...

Thanx Brett, really appreciate it. Where did you get your copy if I may ask ?

Brett Culley said...

the flight sim store is where i picked mine up at, i always buy my ground textures from them, regardless of the devoloper.
