Sim Market Maddog X P3D V4 upgrade offer

Recommended Posts

Having previously purchased the Maddog X 32 bit version I was offered this at Sim Market...

"UPDATE OFFER
If you previously purchased LEONARDO SOFTWARE - FLY THE MADDOG X 32 BIT FSX P3D at simMarket, you are entitled to the special upgrade price of EUR 13.00 only. NOTE: The special upgrade price will be awarded automatically, therefore you must be logged into your same account used to purchase the previous version
"

So I purchased and installed this, however there is no Maddog folder and subfolders in the Simobjects/Airplanes folder in P3D V4, which makes no sense because it means it's impossible to add additional liveries, or edit the aircraft CFG file etc.

Is this normal..?? If this is some kind of "limited" upgrade just to give you a taste of the 64 bit version it's pretty useless like this, and had I known this to be the case I would not have wasted 13 euros on this, and I would have just purchased the full version for 70 euros.

Anyone know anything about this..??

P3D v4 has a different installation method. Go do your documents/Prepar3d v4 AddOns/ (or similar) folder and look for the maddog... there you can find your SimObjects and everything else.

From memory (not at my simming computer now), the Maddog doesn't install into the P3Dv4 folders, rather into the P3Dv4 addons folder in your Documents folder, and the Maddog should be there as well.

 

EDIT: Beaten to it :)

Thanks guys, sure enough, that's where it is....!!! I appreciate you educating me...😎

This really threw me for a loop because none of the other payware AC packages, and I have at least a half dozen or more, that I've installed in P3D v4.2 installs that way. They have all gone in the main P3D/Simobjects/Airplanes folder.

At any rate, who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks (lol) and if this happens again at some point I'll know where to look thanks to you guys.

Kind regards,

Scott
