FSX AFCADs work in P3D v2.5?

Recommended Posts

Hi all! Recently started making the shift over. Was just wondering if I could install AFCADs into P3D the exact same way I did for FSX?

Thanks!

Yes. You can. Though most afcads used to just go into Addon Scenery\scenery and just automatically be active. This is not the case in v2.5 - at least not out of the box. You have to create that folder structure and then add it in your scenery library or add each individually. Either will work.

Sweet, thanks! I'll keep that in mind.

I don't think the change of folder structure makes much difference, you can still add an Addon Scenery folder if that makes you happy - as always, an AFCAD in an active scenery folder will work.

 

I've used lots of FSX AFCADs and can't say I notice many major probelms but yes, as thetford noted, FSX AFCADs are not fully compatible with P3D. It really is easy with ADE, you just load the airport you're interested in and recompile (which I'm sure the link explaihns properly!). I've done that plenty of times with AFCADs I really care about (mainly ones I'm working on myself).

 

Summary - super easy to fix if you're just wanting to change a few.

 

I note that project bluesky has a lot of AFCAD files available (all of them in one download) and that this had recently been updated (presumably recompiled) for P3D. I've now got that added which covers my US airport AFCAD needs pretty well.
