Native P3Dv6 Addons List?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys

What addons are available for P3Dv6 natively? I know FSUIPC, Chaseplane and new Pilot Mesh 2024 is out there.  

Who else has P3Dv6 products? (I am hoping these developers are installing outside the sim).  

I am not looking for compatible products, but products which have installers built for v6?

Thanks,

It really is slim pickings over there for P3Dv6 addons

Unfortunately it is. I guess that’s why most people myself included stick with previous versions. This latest V6 update came just in time to wreck chaseplane after a long wait for them to catch up to the last update. Developers ranks are thinning out.

Ideal Flight S - native P3D v6 install - installs outside the sim (Flight 1).

Lots of P3Dv4-5 addon's "work" but some seem to have exclusion problems with default scenery and some slight elevation issues. The big developers like Fly Tampa, FsDreamteam, LatinVFR, Imagine Sim (who did an update to V6 on KATL), Flight Beam etc. work without apparent issues. It seems that P3Dv6 allows for greater resolution at least I can see items at much greater distance than before. Also the sim is much smoother and seemingly more efficient while handling more detail. The main issue now is dawn to daylight and dusk till night transitions while these can be mitigated by the "live light adjustments" its still a pain, otherwise lighting is much improved . What's frustrating is there is only a few developers willing to make what appears to be "small adjustments".   I have a separate scenery folder and inject the files via lorby and this works well.

The stock airport exclusion issues could be fixed easily, but until someone updates Airport Design Editor that likely won't happen.

I've asked if it could be updated to work with v6 over at FSDeveloper.com, but the developer has retired and seems to have no interest at all in updating it.  I keep hoping that someone else will step up and update it with the author's permission, but so far nothing.

I've got many v5 airports that I've modified and updated, but they have issues in v6, which is why I haven't switched to v6 yet.

Small side question:
Can I also use Ideal Flight S with "Active Sky" weather ? From what I've read, this program uses its own "weather generator" - can you replace it with active sky (best generator ever) ?

I would be really interested in the answer

Uncheck "Master weather enable" on the weather page.

That was one of the more important reasons why I’ve stayed with v5. All good things sadly come to an end. 😥
