Hello, I am considering installing it on the monthly plan but I want to make sure I don't mess up FSX in the process. 1. Can it be on the same drive as FSX or a separate drive? I have a dedicated FSX drive and availability on my c drive. If it is on my c drive, what is the best place for it. 2. How big is the installation? Any additional info on your actual experience using P3D is appreciated including FSX add on compatibility (I'm really interested in FSX ADE files and Traffic bgl's).

Base install is about 17Gb, from an initial download that is about 10.5Gb. It will happily sit on the same drive as FSX with no issues whatsoever. So far I've tried a few FSX add-ons in it. Some install directly using the FSX installer if you point it at the P3D folder, others don't like that but can be manually placed in there. Ones I've tried... DodoSim Bell 206 JetRanger - installs straight in with no problem UK2000 Liverpool Extreme - installs straight in with no problem UK2000 Manchester Extreme - installs straight in with no problem UK2000 VFR Airports Volume 3 - installs straight in with no problem Just Flight VFR Photorealistic UK Scenery Vols 1 through 4 - can be installed by pointing the scenery library in P3D to FSX library when it is installed in FSX A2A Wings of Power 2 AccuSim B-17G Flying Fortress - has to be manually copied over from an FSX install, but works OK in P3D, including all the AccuSim features. REX - installs straight in with no problem, the weather engine works too and can download real world weather into P3D and the cloud and airport textures work just fine. Al

Al - what do you set Prepar3D's weather as when using the REX weather engine?

I just left it as it was, on the default, and then I cranked up the REX weather engine. When the Flight loaded in P3D, the REX message rolled across the top of the screen (saying it was loading into FSX, even though it was actually loading into P3D). When I checked in the weather setting in P3D, it was on the user defined setting, but REX was updating the weather as I flew about. So the short answer is, I didn't actually touch the weather settings inP3D, I simply let the REX weather engine override it. Al

I'm veeeeery interested in Prepar3D as some voices say that it is better looking, faster and more stable than FSX.And it get developed!!! Some questions I have; hope somebody could answer the one or the other 1) what about the water? Are these real waves now? Not just a flat surface like FSX?Is the water influenced from weather? 2) I've seen some pics with fantastic clouds.Are they complete reworked ... could someone post please a few more pictures with mountains sourrounded by clouds, thunderstorms etc 3) Any experience with MyTrafficX or other AI Traffic?How is the default AI Traffic in prepar3d? 4) do Addons which have problems with FSX DX10 mode also have problems with Prepar3d?Namely most of the Aerosoft sceneries... 5) what is the default mesh delivered with Prepar3d? do we need also mesh addons like FSglobal? 6) I would be glad about every picture of prepar3d!!! 7) what are the differences in the folder structure FSX/prepar3d? does it have sth like a fsx.cfg, an addon folder, etc. Are there many differences in aircraft.cfgs etc etc? sorry for the bunch of questions; answers are much appreciated.Would change to prepar3d as soon as possible, but I'm also a heavy FSUIPC user, so things like LINDA and my MCP Combo should also work surely, before I change. FSUIPC should be fitted for v1.2 in november, Pete said... thanks
