P3D V2 Master Compatibility List (Closed)

Recommended Posts

This is a living list of the known compatibility or issues with add-ons running in Prepar3D V2, based on community input.  Please post your results in this thread--once reviewed and incorporated, posts will be hidden or deleted to keep things tidy.  If any special procedures or utilities were used, please specify how the add-on was installed and enabled in P3D.  If there are limitations when installed in P3D, please list them.  If there is a P3D V2-native version, or the FSX version is supported in P3D by the add-on maker, please tell us that. This list is for P3D Version 2.0 ONLY--do not post issues related to compatibility with versions prior to V2.


**Note -- Entries for any add-on whose use in P3D is expressly prohibited by its respective EULA will not address compatibility. 

DO NOT post instructions for installing add-ons with EULAs prohibiting use in P3D.  User sanctions may result for violations--you have been warned.

Known P3D Compatibility Issues affecting multiple add-ons:


1.  Global weather writes cause catastrophic high temp to be injected into sim--affects most weather add-ons, LM aware of issue

2.  A change in how a P3D internal state flag is set causes multiple FSX add-ons to crash when switching between full-screen, windowed, and/or minimized modes.

3.  A scenery visibility flag that was ignored by FSX/ESP is now properly observed, resulting in some default and add-on scenery taxiways to disappear.



"EMT" = Estonia Migration Tool

Folks--let's not have Q&A about add-ons in this thread.  In other words, please post information on known compatibility and/or incompatibility between P3D V2 and add-ons so it can be added to the list--this is not meant to be a place where people can ask if/how their favorite programs work with P3D V2 or to discuss performance issues etc.


If there are significant issues to mention related to use of a particular add-on in V2, please reference or start a thread elsewhere on the forums and provide me a link to that discussion here, and I'll post that where appropriate.  For the purpose of listing compatibility, I am erring on the side of those who report they got an add-on working.  If there is disagreement on compatibility or other P3D2-realted issues, again, please have/initiate that discussion in another thread, and if you provide me a link here, I'll link the list entry to the discussion.


An entry in the list only reflects other users' experiences with the referenced software and P3D2.  It's intended to give a quick look at other user experiences with FSX add-ons and P3D2 compatibility, not a comprehensive recommendation for any and all users.  Many of these add-ons were released for FSX and are untested and unsupported by their developers vis-a-vis P3D2.  It's up to each of us to do our own research.  This is intended to be a starting point only.


So that I don't miss anything by repeatedly sorting through a long list of old posts, I am deleting all posts in this thread as soon as I review them.  Please pose questions and conduct how-to discussions in another thread, as posts will disappear quickly here.

I am going to test my favorite freeware ACs from FSX in my new install of P3D2 over the next coming weeks. I would like to share my experience with the community; should I post this here or rather in the "P3D Aircraft & Vehicles - Native and Add-Ons" category? Whatever you prefer is fine for me.

Best Regards

All afcads of the freeware scenery of BlueSkyScenery are reworked and ready for prepar3Dv2. So this scenery is now compatible in P3Dv2.

The afcads can be downloaded from the site.

Carenado Pa28.... version FSX, installed with the native installer. Just pointed to the p3d directory..


I guess we can call it a failure...  unless this is a new kind of stratophaser..




The plane doesnt move, the wheels animation shows the wheel turning and a lot of smoke effect is generated....  maybe something related to contact points. When looking closely at the wheel, they are partially burried in the concrete..... I didn't try changing the contact point as I have no clue how the value are selected....

More information on Carenado piper.


In aircraft.cfg, changing the contacts_points section solve the buried wheel problem. 


on line point.0, change the third parameter from -3.65 to -3.95

On lien point.1 and .2 (2 main wheels), change the third parameter from -3.32 to -3.62.


The smoke was not really smoke. It was the fx_wheel_snow_spray effect because I started my flight in winter. I removed it from the effect directory to remove the effect altogether as it is not realistic. 


P3D crash on reloading the plane after a first load then on exiting p3d..But it's now flyable...

Was unsuccessful getting MAAM's 7th Edition B-25 for FSX to work in P3Dv2 without getting kicked to desktop . I was using EMT . Installation went well , AC and all texture variants showed up in AC Menu , gauges in Gauge folder etc , but after selecting any of the textures to load the AC , I immediately got kicked to desktop .

The spitfire seems unable to load fluids, and as a result is unusable.
