REX Sky Force and P3D V4 Install, Client, Content,Scenery

Recommended Posts

Folks I just got advice at REX forums that to get my Skyforce to work properly, that my P3Dv4 needs to have all three components updated for it to work properly.

I have done several updates of the "client" but avoid doing the content and scenery parts with the belief that this will disconnect all sorts of stuff, IE basically a complete reinstall.

Is it possible to update all three components without affecting various utilities and scenery and planes and some of the necessary tweaks that were required to make those work properly?

Updating the content and scenery shouldn't affect most addon aircraft or your scenery library.  I did client and content update when I updated to 4.2, and it didn't affect any of my addons.  I don't update the scenery as it only affects default scenery that I don't fly in to.

Bryan,

I'd take the advice with a grain of salt for now...it didn't come from an REX developer as far as I can tell.  I have only updated my Client and Content, but not the Scenery, and my SkyForce works fine.  In fact, it worked fine even after I had only updated my Client without updating the Content yet.

And updating the Scenery.msi will do more than what Alan said above.  If you want the "fix" for the Time Zones, that requires you do the Scenery.msi update too (per an answer to my question about it from a LM developer in the P3D forum).

I updated client only, to 4.2. I use Skyforce as my weather program, and have noticed no problems at all.

OK guys, thanks, I wanted to be careful about this advice and glad I did.

So I will wait until I get a REX answer on what to do. The program installed OK, and I have done a texture backup and added textures which appear to be working. Its just the weather injector that's not working.
