Upgrading from v2.4 to v3

Recommended Posts

Haven't flew P3d v2.4 for more than a year and just flew it over the weekend and happy to see that everything still runs fine. However of course v3 has been out for more than a year now and I'm considering the upgrade.


I know I missed the boat when the upgrade discussion were happening the most but I can really appreciate some tips on upgrade. I know v3 can be installed side by side with v2.4 and that's what I'm going to do. I guess my major concern like many people here is the addons. I have lots of Orbx stuff like Global, Vector, Australia, NA, EU addon etc etc etc. Do I have to re-purchase every P3D V3 version (if available)? Or I can just download the v3 version and install them to P3D. 



By the way, I'm having a strange problem with P3D that it keeps recognizing numpad keys as "SHIFT-". For instance Num 7 is for trim, and SHIFT-Num 7is for left snap view. Somehow P3D got stuck with always taking Num 7 as Shift-Num7. I tested the keyboard and made sure that shift keys weren't stuck. 


Couldn't figure out how to solve this glitch and I ended up deleting the view key assignments and re-assigned Shift-Num 7/1 as new trim keys.

Thanks a lot. It'll be a dreadful process to install all the addons to V3. $60 price is totally acceptable, but the time effort is very expensive in a sense.  I truly hope V3 worth the effort.


I finally got a chance to fly P3D v2.4 on my 135" home theater projector screen. It's drop dead gorgeous and I was totally overwhelmed by the sensation. I really didn't have a hint that even at non-4K 1080p the large screen can make such a phenomenal difference.  Hope V3 is even better.
