If I upgrade to V5. 1

Recommended Posts

Hi

I am considering upgrading to v5.1 and would like to know if my add ons are compatible with it either as they stand or via a free update. If I have to pay for v5 versions then I may just stick with v4.5. Specifically, I have the following add ons if anyone can advise on each one that would be great :

ASP3D

Rex Sky Force 

Aivlasoft EFB

FS LABS A320 

PMDG 737NG

Pro ATC 

Naivgraph Charts 

Thanks in advance

Not quite sure (so to be confirmed by others) but it seems to me that the 737NG is not compatible with V5. You would have to buy the NGXu.

That will continue to work. You just point it to the v5 location same as you did for v4.

The NGXu works not the NGX. The NGX is only P3D v4 or downwards compatible.

Rex Sky Force works but it is a bit tricky to set up due to the REX loaders- that said I discontinued using it now I have properly set up True Sky (see threads here and elsewhere) and I prefer the realism of True Sky as opposed to just a texture injection method for skies (Yes I know Sky Force uses 3D models)

I use FSXWX or P3DWX as a weather engine - it is freeware and works perfectly.

I know Navigraph worked as it was installed in some of my addons but I do not use it either as I have no need for updated regular airways and navaids data and I find the freeware LitlleNavMap much better for planning etc. 

The other addons - do not have cannot help you there!

ASP3D works with 4.5 and 5.x. Just download the newest version from their site.

Rex Sky Force has been updated to V5.  Just the PMDG 737NG will not work.  Rest are good.

The PMDG 737 NGX will work as long as you are comfortable with making changes to your PC's registry.
(Confirmed happy 737NGX and P3D v5 user).

Here's a guide on how to get the NGX to work in P3Dv5:
 

 


Ryzen 3700X 4.4GHz(PBO); ASUS GTX 1070 O8G; Gigabyte AB350 Gaming-3; 32GB Corsair 3200 MHz; ASUS VG35VQ 35" (3440x1440)
Fulcrum Sim yoke; Thrustmaster TCA Sidestick and Throttle Airbus edition; MFG Crosswind rudder pedals; CP Flight MCP 737; Logitech FIP x2; TrackIR

P3Dv5.1 + FS Global Ultimate NG + ORBX + MSE + ActiveSky + ChasePlane + AILRP + FS-ATC Chatter + FFTF Dynamic + Self Loading Cargo + WIN 10 Pro
PMDG 737 777; QW 787; AS A320 A330; MJC Dash 8; A2A C172 PA-28; Carenado A42 A72 XL560; FT E-Jets v3; QW 757; JF C152

ASP3D - Yes, with discounts for previous versions but with some limitations https://hifisimtech.com/asp3d/ pending a further update by LM to Enhanced Atmospherics (EA).  You can run P3D V5.1 HF1 with EA off although I think I still prefer it on.  

Rex Sky Force Don't Know

Aivlasoft EFB Don't Know

FS LABS A320 Don't Know

PMDG 737NG - NGXu is the product PMDG support

Pro ATC - Yes 

Naivgraph Charts - Yes (and with the NGXu you can view airport, SID and STAR charts directly in the cockpit via the Electronic Flight Bag which is included)

The FS Labs A320 is fully compatible with 5.1.

Rex Skyforce also works.  Note however, that Rex just announced a development update: more technical fixes coming, but feature update development is on hold "due to changes in the rendering engine of Prepar3D v5."

Hi. You should head over to the FSElite site. Under "Explore FSElite", you will find the P3Dv5 Hub which lists the compatibility status of all the major addons with P3Dv5 and any issues which may be encountered. Regards.
