Installation Best Practices?

Recommended Posts

Greetings, 

 

I am going to perform my first ever update, moving from Prepar3D V2.4 to V2.5, and wanted to know if there are some "best practices" for loading scenery files (and other tricks), thinking forward to V2.6.

 

I never had to update FSX (no path possible) nor P3D V1.4 (also no path possible). However, I find myself with a lightly corrupted version of 2.4 and thought I would just with a fresh new build of 2.5. But, I am really looking upstream to the eventual 2.6 upgrade, and was wondering if there was a way to decouple the Orbx/Earth Simulations files from the main sim directory. That way, at least to my thinking, if I have to do another install I can just point the updated sim to the Orbx and Earth Simulations directory.

 

Is there a way to decouple the Orbx and Earth Simulations directories from the main directory so that an update to V2.6 does not necessitate reloading scenery? I looked in the AVSIM guide but did not find anything about manipulating scenery files.  

 

Thanks for the guidance!

Orbx stuff, I recommend just reinstalling from a clean slate.  As it usually installs some files into the sim scenery folder, meaning outside of the ORBX folder.

 

I don't have any earth simulations stuff, but I would imagine that your could just cut and paste the directory elsewhere.  Use scenery config editor to add it back to the scenery config file.  http://sourceforge.net/projects/fs-sceditor/
