FSX Steam DLC Aircraft

Recommended Posts

Hi Marteen,

I have just purchased an aircraft for FSX thru Steam.

This is steam Download Content (DLC) which, however is not installed in the usual  C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\SimObjects\Airplanes folder. Steam installs each one in  a separate numbered directory stream below "DLC" e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\DLC\379575\SimObjects\Airplanes.

This more convoluted routing is not picked by SLX's database builder. While it appears possible to fool SLX by dropping another copy of the files from the DLC sub folder stream into the FSX\SimObjects\Airplanes folder, I don't know yet if this may have an adverse impact on FSX itself. Can this be fixed?

NB when SLX is running alongside FSX when an aircraft is not loaded in the SLX database, SLX goes into an endless loop flashing up error message after error message advising that this is the case.

Regards,

Michael

Hi Michael,

I would expect the path to the DLC content to be present in the FSX.cfg file and that's where SimLauncherX looks for the paths to simulator aircraft. Can you please send me your %AppData%\Microsoft\FSX\fsx.cfg file for investigation?

I will make sure that the error message will be shown only once in the next version.

thanks, Maarten

Hi Michael,

Strange that the DLC path is not added to the SimObjectPath.x entries in the [Main] section. I will add the DLC subfolder to the list of paths that will be scanned for aircraft.cfg files.

To workaround the issue, add SimObjectPaths.6=DLC\379575\SimObjects\Airplanes and SimObjectPaths.7=DLC\556221\SimObjects\Airplanes to the [Main] section. Do this for every DLC airplane until I have released a new version (probably tomorrow).

thanks, Maarten

Update: DLC folder has now been added to the list of paths to scan
