P4AO: How to add legacy scenery

Recommended Posts

Hello @ll,

I made a short photo series about how to install legacy scenery (= scenery that wasn't made with an installer that creates an add-on.xml) externally.

I usually group my addons by developer, so in this example I chose to do a fresh install of Aerosoft Gibraltar and Stuttgart (the "Professional" versions).

First, I laid the groundwork
1. created a folder "C:\Users\olive\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons\Aerosoft" 
    (it doesn't matter where you create that folder! It doesn't have to be in \Documents\, and it can be on another drive too - "F:\MyAddons\AerosoftStuff" works just fine too!)

2. Copied the prepar3d.exe into that folder

After that I ran the Gibraltar Installer and pointed it at my new folder. This is the result:

Then I took these steps to add the scenery to an add-on.xml

Then I installed Stuttgart Professional into the same folder. Unfortunately the installer decided to do that a little differently to Gibraltar, so I have to take an extra step WRT the effects

Thank you Oliver for the tutorial.

Saves on those installers for which we have to pay extra for the P3D v4 version. Yes, looking at you Taxi2Gate, JustSim etc.

 

Kind regards
