Migrating FSX aircraft add ons to P3DV4

Recommended Posts

I'm just starting with P3D V4.1.

I own the Tormado F3 Mission simulator and use it with VR (P3d/FlyInside/ORBX) to allow visitors to fly against Cold War type threats. I've had a good system running in P3DV3 but keen to make the switch to V4 for better fidelity.

I have a number of former Soviet types loaded as aircraft (Bear, Badger, Bison, Mainstay etc). All of them were downloaded as FSX simulations. I don't need to fly them but want to launch them as AI targets under AI Tracker X and intercept them. Loading up the P3DV4 Scenario screen, they now show as "no preview" and don't appear when P3D loads.

I understand it's that they may originally have been FS9 models and V4 has dropped some of the elements that made them operable. Is that the case and is there a fix? A friend has suggested MCX and save them as a different file type.

I'm a relative newbie so I need simple fixes if possible.

Use the ThumbnailexporterX tool to find if they are FSX or older. If older they will NOT run on P3d V4.1

The tool can be found with Google.
