Aircraft/Scenery Compatibility with P3D 2.5

Recommended Posts

Guest

also thanks to LM

 

Definitely big thanks to LM ... to be honest it's rare to get developers interacting with end users.  I appreciate them listening and progressing the platform.

 

 

 

What about addon aircraft (i.e.. A2A) and the Flight1 GTN & Opus?? Anyone have any time with these yet? Should these items be put on hold for new installers??

 

Do you need to uninstall then delete the P3D folder or should this be left intact?

 

A2A is fine,

GTN750 will need an update,

OpusFSI works but I had FPS issues with it

ASN will need an update

FSGRW will need an update

Orbx will need an update

Virtuali will need an update

FSUIPC already has an update

GoFlight and GIT is fine (exception, GIT will not work with PMDG DLL.XML entry)

PrecipitFX is fine

REX 4 TD will need an update

iFly 737 is fine

MJC Q400 is fine

Milviz 737, MD530,  is fine

Aerosoft Airbus

Aerosoft TwinOtter

Carenado S550

Carenado PC12 (well it has bugs but nothing related to v2.5)

PMDG 777 is fine

QW BAe 146 is fine

Captain Sim 777, L1011, (even C-130) are fine

Aerosoft airports (Bergamo, Dublin, Lisbon, Thessaloniki, Tromso, Sandefjord, Oslo, Seychelles) are fine

Fly Tampa (Copenhagen, St. Maarten, Dubai, Vienna, Athens, Montreal) are fine

Taxi2Gate (OTHH, LTBA, KMCO) are fine

29Palms is fine

Sim720 is fine

Nagasaki is fine

LFLJ Courchevel (LLH) is fine

Imagine Sim KAUS is fine

 

... I pretty much had to do all my own custom weather setup since I could not get any weather engine other than OpusFSI to work ... so my weather testing was limited to what P3D offers.

 

When I indicate "Fine" that indicates the same functionality that worked in v2.4.

 

I would uninstall v2.4, and manually make sure ALL the P3D folders are gone ... uninstallers will often leave files/folders intact that are not part of the original install and/or if they've been changed (i.e. by 3rd party).

 

Cheers, Rob.

Rob, for scenery products such as those from Aerosoft that mainly installed into the "Addon Scenery" folder that is now absent from v2.5 - can we just manually create the folder in the P3D root directory and install as normal?

As far as we know we have no product that does that, we always default to the Aerosoft folder so it is easy to see what is installed. 

 

We are studying the new options of 2.5 btw, but in placement of product files and in new functionality. There are some things that are mighty interesting.

Apologies Mathijs, maybe I was thinking of another scenery developer who's addons reside in Addon Scenery folder - thanks for the reply.

I asked this on the Rex support site and they said that no update was needed.  I tried it and it seemed OK/

even if i add Addon scenery on p3d folder, it seem that aerosoft dont find the correct path..

Aerosoft addons are located in Aerosoft folder not in addon scenery.

Düsseldorf is working fine here.

I have only pointed to my FSX installation in scenery library, did not need to install it twice.

Is FS Global Mesh working in 2.5?

 

FS Global mesh works. When you install, you should be asked if you want to download updated installers. Say yes.

How did you get Aerosoft US Cities Las Vegas to work in P3dv2.5?  When I start P3D the screen is black?

I just got v2.5. Where have I been? Under a rock? I've been using the Steam version. What a graphics revamp. Bravo! Like a brand new simulator. So now I'm ported over Aerosoft stuff with the Prepar3D installer. Starting my list:

 

Lisbon - Perfect

Carenado PC12 HD. - Perfect.

Milviz 737

Rob, despite getting the latest installer, it is only for v1. Even tough it showed up in the Vehicle List, when going to select it, it crashed the sim. Is there an installer for v2.5?

Are you sure you got the correct installer?  I didn't have any issues with it.  Here Milviz web site and it does show P3Dv2: http://milviz.com/flight/products/B732C/index.php

 

Cheers, Rob.

Hi Rob

 

Thanks for that but please take a look at the screenshot. Does this mean I have to purchase the upgrade option?MilViz737.jpg

Yes the upgrade to v2 is a separate purchase.
