Lost most of my airplanes!

Recommended Posts

Yes I lost almost all my default P3D v3 aircraft from the selection list tonight.  Anyone seen this happen?  Only a few remain (these exactly): Vertavia helicopter, the Civilan avatar, Robinson R22, Submarine Ohio Class, Submersible

 

I just got v3 today and haven't installed much so I'm not too troubled yet but I'm wondering what happened.  I just started P3D tonite (my PC was shut down from eariler today!)

Are the files in the simobjects folder and have the aircraft.cfg files been hosed or deleted some how ?

All folders are nestled safely in their P3Dv3/simobjects areas.

 

EDIT: Fixed!

 

I fixed this problem on my own.
 there are two directories in different locations with identical files

C:\Users\All Users\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3

and 

C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3

What happened is my simobjects.cfg file (in the Users/All Users directory) was missing the Airplane entry... so I added it at the bottom:
[Entry.9]
PATH=SimObjects\Airplanes
TITLE=Default Airplanes
ACTIVE=true
REQUIRED=true

Bingo, airplanes are all back!

ACTIVE=true
REQUIRED=true
[Entry.5]
PATH=SimObjects\Airplanes
TITLE=Default Airplanes
ACTIVE=true
REQUIRED=true
[Entry.6]
PATH=SimObjects\Avatars

[Entry.7]
PATH=SimObjects\GroundVehicles
