Add-On Placement

Recommended Posts

Am I correct that all add-on airports, etc. should be placed in the Documents/Prepar3D v4 Add-Ons folder?

NO!. This is where the new system has gotten many people confused. The ACTUAL airport, aircraft , etc can be placed ANYWHERE you have room on your system. What you need in the V4 Addons folder is an add-on.xml file that contains the link info for the add on.

I am very happy to report that I got it figured out.  I installed one of my FSDT airports and then copied the XML file making the necessary changes for my KATL.  I placed KATL in the same add-on directory used by FSDT making an ImagineSim folder.  Not too complicated - but I'd hate to be a novice trying to tackle this.  Thanks a lot Vic!

Chuck - did you use Lorby's add on tool? It's free and it does most of the work for you.

The way I do it now - I either unzip or install my new scenery/aircraft to a dedicated add on folder or a large drive.

Then run the P4AO (Lorby) and point it to that location - the tool will create the folder and the xml file. In the case of scenery, you can either specify a layer# or just move it down the list manually.

Have fun!

Vic
