What website?  The 2 good providers are Aerosoft and Navigraph, but read the fine print - not every addon is supported by both.

Make sure to read the various readme's and understand exactly what you are getting and its impacts...  otherwise it's recommended.

I've used them for some time now; when you download the FSX update simply unzip all into a temp directory and run the installer, select all and press go and you are done.  Be aware that there may be issues if you attempt to use the FSX map feature after installation.  I do not use the alternate file set included - you may if you wish to do so.  Read the .pdf that is included in the zip and it will tell you exactly what everything does or doesn't do.

Indeed, many of us have been using the updates for some time now.  As others said, however, read the information on the site to see the tradeoffs.  Highly recommended IF you understand the drawbacks and they're unimportant to you.

 

Among other things, the FSX flightplanner is not going to work for you once you've done this.  But most who are serious enough to want to do this (and who have Navigraph subscriptions) don't use the built-in flightplanner anyway.

 

Also, keep in mind that on-airport navaids are not updated, except for a few European airports.

I use Navigraph with the 737 NGX so the FP is no use to me anyway.

 

there is two folders inside FSXP3D_WorldNavaids named Europe alt files and fsxp3d will i need to add these folders guys?

You should read "except for all European airports" (in fact for them, much more is corrected including navaids, ILSs, runway identifiers, PAPIs and approach lighting systems, as indicated in the documentation if at least you didn't check the "Do not update airport files") 

Even if I understand it will not satisfy non Europeans, I still hope you will enjoy it if you don't have any replacement sceneries for them

This is only for installer program use depending on the options you selected (Alt or regular), so don't worry about that.

Also understand that you can install/uninstall with different options whenever you want so as to have a look to what is changed/available. It will not hurt. Everything is reversible

Yes except that worlINT is not appropriate if you use "alternate airport files" as far as it already includes updated Europe fixes..(see doc). You may install some additional regional INT files instead (except Europe one) but have a look as it is. It shouldn't be a big problem

Right ok i have removed the worldINT file.

 

So by running the installer and ticking the alt airport files i have installed everything correctly?

My apologies for the partial misinformation.  It's been a while since I've read the documentation.  :-)

 

And yes, even for those of us who don't regularly fly in Europe, your efforts are still very much appreciated.

Hi herve i found a few missing waypoints last night on the EGFF STAR - CDF1A

 

I tried to include these waypoints in the fsx planner for RC as the end of my route was too far out for RC but couldn't find these waypoints?

 

AMRAL, RILES, DOBEM and KUKIS

 

Thanks.

Which install configuration did you use?

1)  Included European waypoints from FSXP3D installer with "alternate set" checked?

2) Manual addition of the WordlINT or EurINT.bgl files ?

May be you can mail me directly at hsors(at).hotmail(dot)com so as to sort it out

 

Regards
