    ORBX has restructures and lowered the price of some airports so that the cost better reflects the standard of the package.

    I have to say, that's not a bad way to go.
    ORBX Airports have always had a pretty good price point anyway.

    YWOL in base P3D is an old grass strip and a Shed and the lake is all wrong.

    In ORBX, it's near enough perfect, includes all the warehouse and shopping areas and covers the whole Lake region.
    It even has the Qantas 747 parked there that recently landed (and can never leave.
    Less than US$40 for a 1-1 recreation of your local Airfield is a no brainer.

    I just wish they would tackle some of the Major Airports. I have to rely on Fly Tampa for that (who are good also)

    Launceston airport was pretty accurate until recently, when they built new car parks and rerouted some of the roads. There is even the correct sign on the Tasmanian aero club building, which is where my dad flies out of IRL.

    It is nice having the stuff local to you be as close to accurate as it can be.
