VC Transparent in P3Dv5

Recommended Posts

This sounds like Carenado's copy protection in action.

Try reinstalling into V5.

Same issues here - Carenado products are installed into v5 SimObjects with Unblock and Administrator rights selected. Some users report turning Water reflections off solves it, but I have no sucess with that. Will wait for a v5 installer.

Be sure you are using the P3D version 4 installer and selecting P3D version 4, then pointing to P3Dv5. Don't skip the second step to select the v4 option.

Thanks for clarifying that Bert. I'm afraid my explanation was not totally clear. I was just trying to make the point that you have to select P3D in the installer and then in the next window also select (bullet in) the V4 choice prior to browsing to the P3Dv5 location.

I understand how to do it; Ijust don't know how to explain it. 😉

Thanks again for your clarification. Good to have you watching over us.

I've tried this, and it worked for the old C152 and C172, but for all modern/glass panel planes (C525/C550/SR22/C182 G1000/Phenom 100/Phenom300/Premier 1A), the problem of transparent cockpit still exists...I'm at a loss, as I've tried all methods suggested here in the forums.  I'm running Win10/32GB RAM/2080Ti w/11GB VRAM.

I'm afraid I don't know, Jim. Wish I could be more helpful but "glass" is a little above my pay grade. 🙂 I fly old school analog and when I feel the need for something more high tech I add a GNS 530/430.

Although it doesn't really sound related, and you probably already have tried it, the only thing I can suggest is that maybe those aircraft need the compatibility patch. The instructions and patch download are available on the Carenado site in the support section. Here is the link: https://carenado.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360046625614-Installing-Carenado-aircraft-in-P3Dv5

Hope this helps or maybe someone else will have a solution for you.

Best of luck, Let us know how it works out.

Hi @Chocorua - no luck, but I gave up trying, ans as far as I know, Carenado hasn't done anything about it yet....

First, select P3D V4, then Browse to your V5 directory if the installer does not offer V5.

Are you sure Bert? That all seems a bit too easy in my view. 😁


You have nothing to fear but fear itself. F.D.R.
