Unless you’re new to the world of flight simulators, then there’s a good chance you know all about payware add-ons. There seems to be a release of new content almost every week, so it can be hard to keep up with what all is happening in the add-on sphere. Today, I’d like to share a special deal that cropped up in my inbox: heavily reduced ORBX sceneries for newcomers.
If you’re unfamiliar, the ORBX team has created a wealth of scenery upgrades considered by many flight-sim fans to be of high quality. Anytime I’ve come across a graphical enhancement tutorial/article to try and gussy-up my installation of FSX, an ORBX package is almost always a part of the recommendation. I agree though I’ve never bitten the bullet due to their incredibly high prices. Well, if you’re like me and haven’t bought any of their packages, you can take advantage of this deal—a 70% discount on each of the ‘Global Range’ products.
This sale will be active until February 1, 2019.
The only way to score this deal is by signing up for an ORBX account (which is free). As long as no purchases have been made yet, you will be eligible for the discount. ORBX does have some freeware sceneries, though these require their most important payware package: the ‘Global Base’. This package enhances the entire landscape of your FSX/Prepar3D world. With this discount, the price has been marked down to $21.42 (USD). So, if you intend to use of any of ORBX’s other packages (payware or freeware), you’ll need to buy this first. At that price, the bar of entry is a lot easier to get over.
To give a brief overview, ORBX offers scenery enhancements for specific landmasses too, like North & South America, Europe, and Oceania. All of these packages have been discounted as well. Specific airport packages have not been discounted, however.
Here’s a demonstration of how an ORBX-enabled copy of FSX and Prepar3D compares to the original:
