Anyone know where I can edit the add-ons list?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have looked at all the possible prepar3d v5 locations and cannot figure out where this add-ons list saves to. My A2A c182 is installed, but there's no folder for it inside of Prepar3D v5 Add-ons folder at all. So how is it picking it up if its not in there?

I've looked at the files add-ons.cfg in that location already and the A2A entry isn't in there.

I did also, and this is what I have in the add-ons.cfg for that location. Still no A2A entries nowhere to be found. This is weird.

The path says D:\P3D Addons\A2A  - look there

"C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v5\add-ons.cfg" should be a lot bigger. For example, all ORBX packages should be in there, as they are found on the discovery path. Are you certain that you are looking at the correct file?

I just installed two A2A planes into V5 on my devel computer, using the default location. Add-on.xml is in "\Documents\Prepar3D V5 Add-ons\A2A" and the package definition naturally shows up in the \Roaming\..\add-ons.cfg.

I think you misunderstood my question. My question is how does P3D know where to pull the add-on.xml file from for my A2A? The A2A entry is nowhere to be found in any of those locations. I've checked both add-ons.cfg file to see if the entry would be in there, but nope.

P3D should store somewhere the location of the 'add-on.xml' file for my A2A plane which is located in D:\P3D Addons\A2A. But how does the sim know it's location when the entries that point to that specific xml file isn't to be found anywhere?

Hi Aaron,

Let me see if I can simplify Oliver's response. Don't know where you installed the A2A aircraft. By their default, A2A install their aircraft in something like:
C:\Users\xxxx\Documents\Prepar3D v5 Add-ons\A2A
(where xxxx is your name)

In that folder, you will see the add-on.xml file as well as a SimObjects\Airplanes\A2A_C182 folder.

Of course, it could be somewhere else.😕

[By the way. The " C:\Users\xxxx\Documents\Prepar3D v5 Add-ons" is a P3D default autodiscovery folder.]

Hope this helps,
Mike

Did you try doing a system wide search for add-ons.cfg to locate all such files on your computer?

I installed mine into D:\P3D Addons\A2A

This is the folder I specifically created to centralize all my add-ons for Prepar3D. The add-on.xml file resides here. But what I'm wondering is how does the sim know where to find this add-on? Because I also installed FSLabs A320 into D:\P3D Addons\FSLabs and there's an add-on.xml file there for it as well. However when I launch the sim. It doesn't detect the FSLabs plane in the list, but my A2A plane shows up fine. 

Both planes are installed the exact same way. So how come P3D is able to recognize and detect my A2A plane but not the FSLabs? For those of you installed FSLabs to a non-default location, could you please tell me if you have an FSLabs folder located inside the default Documents\Prepar3D v5 Add-ons? Because I don.t

... and you shouldn't.

The A320-X installer should have placed an entry looking like this:

[Package.X]
Path=D:\P3D AddOns\FSLabs
Title=FSLabs Aircraft Family
Active=TRUE
Required=FALSE

into the add-ons.cfg in C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v5, but apparently didn't. Did you run the installer with admin priveleges and re-boot when prompted during the process?

Thank you so much! There was something wrong with my add-ons.cfg file and I had a backup and now it works!
