Thanks. Another 9.8GB, it's not a simple update...

Not true. You can download individual components.

 

Kind regards, Michael

And do we have to uninstall everything to install this one and install all the addons again? Wasn't supposed to be a update program that wouldn't make necesary the uninstall process?

The estimated download time for me at the moment is 6+ hours. I think I will wait until the monkeys have all gone to bed :P

  • Special Effects can now be rendered on terrain and water
  • Enhanced visual quality of water offering greater fidelity at high altitudes and better wave dynamics with high winds

 

Looks like they've addressed the water issues...  :cool:

I looked at the log, and very little if anything affects me. Then I see it requires uninstalling V3 before going to 3.1.  As they say in New York City, "forget about it..."  :wink:

Boats now move with water surface elevation

 

Interesting to see whether that covers floatplanes !

I think they said that that is not necesary. You just update over your installed 3.0 version.

By the way.. I suppose ASN is broken again with this update isn't it?

Yes it does, 6ft waves are very interesting with a float plane!

Does anybody read out of the log if the nightlights have been "fixed" ... I mean if the Aerosoft Airports will work at night again without Simmershome patches?

 

I know, that is mainly an Aerosoft problem, but maybe LM had found a workaround?

 

That would be the greatest Xmas gift for me ...

This is right on top of the change log 

 

"To install the Prepar3D v3.1 Client, you must first uninstall the Prepar3D v3.0 Client via Programs and Features in Windows Control Panel. The Prepar3D v3.1 Client update will require you to reactivate your product, however if you have an internet connection or have not made any major hardware changes between installations this should not be an issue. For more information please view the Prepar3D v3 Download/Installation Instructions from the Prepar3D.com Downloads section."

individual components or not, this looks like a full reinstall to me so far.

 

Why would you want to replace some and not all components, only start adding component mismatch issues to those we already deal with.

 

Would have been great as an update that sorts itself out.

 

Looks like a full reinstall, aint doing it. Taken months to setup p3dv3

They updated the code to use CUDA 6.5. Even more performance, yay!

A dilemma I have. I really want those water improvements, but I don't want my PC to explode if I do something wrong.....

Just checked the instructions again. I doubt anybody will not want all the new components.

As this is a FULL reinstall, very disappointed.

 

The least LM could have done is allow 3 and 3.1 to exist side by side.#

 

Totally insane, took months to setup v3,

If you uninstall any single P3D module, it will only remove what belongs to that module, it won't delete any of your files.

 

I see no problem at all with this update.

 

This is why LM wants developers to put their files outside the P3D folder: Less confusion and less probability of anyone deleting anything they don't want to.

Are you sure that you need to completely reinstall everything? I thought there were three main components now?

I'll try this and let you know how it goes - no big deal if I have to start fresh so be it

======================================================

 

NOTE: If you have previously installed Prepar3D, or are certain all prerequisites are
installed, you can use the Install_Client.msi, Install_Content.msi, and Install_Scenery.msi
installers. This is recommended only for advanced users
