Earth Simulations scenery in P3D 2.5

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

I know EarthSimulations scenery no longer exists, but I found a boxed version so ordered it and it arrived today, it's the IOM scenery and Guernsey. I was hoping to install them into P3D 2.5, but Earth Simulations installer only offers FSX or P3D 2.4. I've tried using the Migration tool but this couldn't find the Scenery.CFG so couldn't install properly, same with the P3D 2.4 installer.

 

I really would like to use these sceneries in the P3D 2.5, so if anyone has succesfully install them, I'd be grateful if you could let me know how you did so :-)

 

 

Kind Regards,

 

Daniel

Id downloaded the scenery to a local ESI pack then used the last version of ESI installer (2.5) to install into P3D... I dont recall whether I did anything special (dont think so) just a pleasant surprise that it seemed to install w/o any problems...

That is very strange as I have just downloaded and installed Guernsey using the ESI installer version 2.5 into P3DV2.5 and confirm that I received the error message 2 or 3 times saying that the installer couldn't find the Scenery.cfg file. The ESI installer clearly says that it is for P3DV2.4!

Yes I am getting the same error, so I don't know how Kevin installed into P3D 2.5 with no problems?

The problem is that the change from P3D 2.4 to P3D 2.5 changed the scenery.cfg location, which is why I am guessing the installer can't find it. There must be some way around this, really want to install this beautiful scenery!

Copy the scenery.cfg to the old location, run the install, then copy the cfg file back again?

This could work, can you remember the location of the scenery.cfg in P3D 2.4?

Apologies, it hasn't moved - still in c:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2

I was thinking of something else :-(

So the ESI install should work unchanged.

 

I have all my ESI scenery in FSX_SE to avoid conflicts with the ORBX scenery in Prepar3D.

 

Cheers

Might be the terrain.cfg that it is looking for. Try moving that one

Thanks but unfortunately it it does not solve the problem, really frustrating not being able to install Guernsey into P3DV2.5

I had created  Guernsey as an ESI pack using P3dV2.4 as Guernsey had worked well.

 

Now I have updated to P3DV2.5 and when I install Guernsey using the ESI pack I receive the message Cannot find the 'D:\Prepar3D v2\scenery.cfg'.

 

If I click ok the installation continues and this messages appears twice more.

 

Guernsey is showing in my ESI Library but when I run P3D i can only see the default airport and the ES Guernsey is not showing in the P3D Library.

 

I am also using FTX Global and Vector

Here are the entries I have in my scenery.cfg for ES Channel Islands (thats Alderney and Guernsey)

now you have to find where ESI installed your scenery on your computer
 
and crosscheck my scenery.cfg entrys for each of the scenery folders  - change [Area.xxx] and Layer= to the correct values as well as the Local= path  or use the freeware Programm "SceneryConfigEditor v1.1.3" (google for it) to add those entry's (prefered method)
 
And also change Active=False to Active=True (as i have it disabled for the moment as I'm not flying in that area now)
 
if there is one folder you dont have - dont add it to your scenery.cfg (I might have installed it with Alderney)
 
hope that helps
 
kind regards

Errrrmmm, thanks for that. I will need some time to digest what is involved. Only had a couple of glasses of wine today, but will need a clear head to attempt it so have another look at it tomorrow:)

 

Many thanks
