Can I ask what I hope are not stupid questions:

Does the 'academic' content [39.2gb] ever change/get updated?

If I update 'client' only, what am I missing out on if I don't install the 'scenery' and 'content' updates?

Hi Garry,

If you go to:

Then on the left pane, expand Prepar3D, What is New, then scroll down to Content you will see all the changes to the Content for each version

It's things like effects & vehicles.

Certainly worth updating if only because of the newly added Donkey and cart scenery objects 😊

Seriously Dave, thanks for the info - that clears things up for met too. Great question, Garry!

Phew! I'm relieved to hear I'm not that stupid after all!

Thanks Dave and Tamsini.

So I can assume the academic content never changes, it's like a 'core' and updates are handled via the other 3 elements.

Now, where do I find that cart and donkey...?? lol

I have one issue after updating to v4.5.12.x, the menu bar items do not work - I can't load or save anything or change planes or bring up FSUIPC for example. Does anyone have any suggestions for a fix?
