I know some of you aren’t the biggest Orbx fans. Honestly though, I don’t care. I love Orbx and their products and I am looking forward to all those beautiful airfields as announced earlier here. Currently Orbx is hiring and looking for some experienced X-Plane developers to help them convert their scenery to our platform. See what they are looking for (see the original post by Orbx’s Ed Correia here):

“Are you looking for an opportunity to join Orbx as a developer? We are wanting to expand our team of  talented developers as well as find specialists to port many of our published airports for XPlane 11. There will also be opportunities to team up with established developers on current projects. This will be paid contract work.

Developer/assistant developers 

  • proven work published either payware or freeware
  • advanced 3D modelling skills and experience with FSX/P3D SDK tools

XP specific

  • proven experience with the use of porting tools from FSX/P3D to XP

Please send covering details, relevant skills and experience to jobs@orbxsystems.com Links to published works/reviews will be advantageous.”

Whether you like it or not, things are about to get real with Orbx! If you are a developer looking for a new assignment, this might be your chance! Good luck!

Hey Ollie,

I have a wish: could you please write your posts in a more objective way? For example you could leave out “I know some of you aren’t the biggest Orbx fans. Honestly though, I don’t care. I love Orbx and their products” and “Whether you like it or not”.Personal feelings can be discussed in the comments section. In my opinion, a news post should only inform people (i.e. facts and stuff) and not include subjective statements.Apart from that…keep up the good work! :)Regards,The3hadow

Mr. Joshua

Hard to not come to Ollie’s defense as I enjoy the personality! Forget the banality in the posts. I understand what The3hadow is getting at though but this is Flight Simulation, not politics. I’ve said it before… I enjoy an opinion, as it brings on a discussion.


If ORBX can focus more on Airports they will do well with XP. I think they saw the light and realized how much potential this sim has. 2017 Has been a great year for flight sims. I think 2018 will be even better for XP with addition of Vulcan and other developers like ORBX bringing their products to xplane. 


Awesome, can’t wait
