FS Global Ultimate - Next Generation and Prepar3D V4

Recommended Posts

Hi,

When you start the installation you will be invited to update the installer. This will then give you the P3D4 option. Proceed with the installation and allow/direct the installer to your original installation folder (assuming you have an installation in place for P3DV3). The installer will then overwrite everything and add all the necessary entries in scenery.cfg for P3D4. 

I imagine you could simply copy the P3D3 entries over, but then you would be faced with having to renumber all the sections in the P3D4 scenery.cfg. Better to leave this irksome task to the installer and, of course, all entries will be placed correctly in the file.

This method obviates the need to establish another installation which would consume another 60-70GBs of valuable drive real estate.

Note: AFM2 RC2 has been released and is compatible with P3D4.

Thanks for that tidbit. I've been waiting for it... this also means Orbx Vector may come out soon.
