News: No More FTX Region Switching

With the release of its latest Library 160528, Orbx announces its soon-to-come unified lclookup (landclass lookup) update, which will completely eliminate the need of switching regions via FTX Central anymore.

No doubt it’s a good thing.  But since regions and scenery will all be active under the new environment, will the startup loading time be prolonged proportionally or even significantly is yet to discover, not to mention any unknown potential performance hit?

The size of the library is now triple of previous versions.   Let’s hope for the better, nevertheless.

EDIT 1: The new FTX Central is already available.
EDIT 2: Just had a quick flight and didn’t see any performance hit.
