Orbx road map for 2017

Recommended Posts

John Venema has just posted his end of year review of 2016 and an exciting insight on what to expect in 2017, I encourage you to take a look here http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/127182-orbx-2017-roadmap/ especially at their top secret projects for 2017.


The tantalising tidbits (except one, Orbx Direct) end in the words " Oh, and it will be 64-bit"!



Project A - Massive. A huge investment in new tech, new tools, new apps and new staff. It will surprise many of you, and delight you all. It will focus on both Europe and North America. It will perform like nothing you have experience in your simming life. It will support VR. It will be a VFR flyer's wet dream. It will be sold on OrbxDirect. Oh, and it will be 64-bit.

(Stumped! VR dedicated)?



Project D - The evolutionary next step. Another big $ commitment, worldwide coverage, new tech, new experiences, a strong partner and an established record. Oh, and it will be 64-bit.

(DoveTail Flight Sim?)



Project P - Our continued commitment to our strongest platform and it has a huge backing. More refinement, more performance, more destinations from Orbx than ever before. An old friend gets better, faster, stronger, bigger. Oh, and it will be 64-bit.

(Prepar3D v4?)



Project X - The surprise package. The dark horse. A big $ R&D commitment. Orbx quality where it's needed the most so things finally get to truly shine. Oh, and it's 64-bit.

(X-PLANE 11?)



Project O - Introduced in 2016 this will become your go-to for all things Orbx with more stability, more features, better performance, and continued development so it never gets stale.

(Orbx Direct/FTXC?)

just been reading on XP Forums regarding the PROJECT X, big thing would be if they could bring some scenery that is more suited to that specific area, reading reports of Bavarian housing in the UK, and also some seasonal textures which is what XP really lacks and what I really enjoy when I jump back into P3D....all good on the other stuff too, lets hope the PP stuff gets done too....
