Scenery in P3Dv4.4

Recommended Posts

Hello

This should be a simple answer for those with P3Dv4 experirnce....

I have some airport scenery innstalled in P3Dv4.4 (using manufaturers installers) that I can not move up/down in the scnery libarry (neither edit). The entries appear shaded.

Curiously, those I can not edit / mode appear also as add-ons and there is where I can turn them on or off but not move up-down.

The real probem I have is that those airports do not have an entry in the scenery.cfg of P3Dv4 and that creates other problems with ither apps I have that need to read the scenery.cfc file from P3Dv4.4

My questions are: 

(1) How can I edit/move those "fix" scenery entries in the scenery library?

(2) How can I make those airports show up in the scenery.cfg file of P3Dv4.4?

Please refer to images below

2) You cannot unless you change the install method which would be a problem.. It is by design that they are fixed. If you want to move them, you need to edit the addon.xml file and specify a layer.

Unless you know what you are doing I would avoid that or you;ll really make a mess.

You need to specify exactly what you think the problem is other than being unable to move them. What exactly is interfering with what?

 

Also check out the Lorby P4AO tool for managing addons - you may have some success there in moving your addons.

Thanks for the quick response Vic.

Just to clarify my fist priority is to ensure that the scenery.cfg fle is ket updatd  with all airports because I need it for oher apps, like Makerunways, FACommander and others.

I am going to take a look at the   "Lorby Prepar3D V4 Addon Organizer" to see if with this app I can get those airports get to the scenery.cfg file

Hello Vic

Your recomendation for creating the scenery.cfg file worked quite well. Thanks a lot.

I downloaded installed and ran the "LorbySceneryExporter" application and it did the work just fine!

Thanks and Regards
