Turbulent Designs has announced they will be entering in a new partnership with Orbx. A statement from the company explained: “Over the past 10 years, the team at Turbulent Designs has developed or contributed to almost 25 airport projects for Orbx and this is the next step in this long-standing relationship.” Initially, they will begin the task of redeveloping all the airports in their current catalogue, to fully integrate into the Orbx ecosystem. Additionally, their currently in-production projects will also be made available through Orbx.
Turbulent’s team is a team of developers and as an independent publisher they have had the freedom to explore different techniques in flight sim development, pushing the boundaries of both visuals and performance.
Turbulent Co-Founder and Director Greg Jones said “Publishing our works through Orbx, while armed with our new experience, allows us to focus more on the development aspect and getting everything ‘just right’ while harnessing Orbx’s extensive beta testing network, technical know-how and the massive Orbx community.”
“We’re excited about Orbx’s move into the world of X-Plane 11 and, as we have said before, this is a platform we’re now fully adopting. In time, all Turbulent Designs airports will be available for X-Plane 11 via orbxdirect.com.”
Orbx CEO John Venema today said “We are absolutely thrilled to once again be working closely with the talented team at Turbulent Designs. They have developed a stellar reputation in the flight simulation industry with a distinct style of products which have been extremely well received by the community.”
Greg Jones added “Turbulent and Orbx share a passion for creating top-quality content in interesting locations while maintaining great performance. We see this a re-strengthening of our relationship which will be great news for both Turbulent and Orbx customers alike.”
Venema continued “Together, Turbulent Designs and Orbx will closely collaborate on many projects to bring our customers some very exciting new products over the coming years. Both companies share the same vision for attention to detail and immersive destinations and I am sure that working closely together will yield some fantastic results!”
Greg concluded: “Turbulent’s existing customers will be able to easily transfer their purchases to Orbxdirect at no charge”. He also gave a glimpse into both organization’s future; “As our business grow and expand together and with new team members coming on board, we look forward to producing a much greater variety of content for the Orbx ecosystem. There’s some great things on the horizon!”
