FTX Wales released – Updated

ORB-720_pic1In the early hours of the morning for Europe, Orbx released the latest area package in their Full Terrain X series covering the nation of Wales in the United Kingdom.

The scenery features a ‘bonus’ detailed version of Cardiff’s International Airport (EGFF) and a number of landmarks and features, in additon to the usual vastly improved textures, landclass and autogen for the area covered. Unfortunately, at the time of writing, the domain is down, the website is up but slow and while the product can be purchased from flightsimstore, people are reporting estimated download times in excess of a day, so you might want to hold off a bit until after the rush!

Update – 12:25GMT: Both Orbx’s main website and forums are now back online and it appears that only certain download servers are having load issues, if any. There’s also a small patch been announced already, via the forums, for an autogen exclude issue which doesn’t affect use of the product and to fix some “bloopers” in the manual.

  2. Thanks Boerries – it was the German and (probably unsurprisingly!) UK servers that were apparently still slow. I got my copy from the Cloud server at about 500kbps, although it did stall for quite a while in the middle. I guess the immediate mad rush is over now, although there may be another one tonight.
