  1. What a time to have just bought MSFS 😔 Thought it seemed to install quickly!
  2. Had a good read of this topic - only things that concern me about updating to 5.3 are the possibility of long stutters as mentioned here (https://www.prepar3d.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6315&t=143918&start=45) & the night sky star issue. 5.2 works perfectly on my machine atm, my question is... is it easy to revert back to 5.2 if I experience stutters / other issues etc? (& how?) Many thanks...great to see the continued updates to this awesome sim! Rich
  3. Excellent - many thanks Ray that's worked a treat! Been bugging me for ages too. Hopefully the other issues get sorted at some point, but at least its now much better. Cheers, Rich
  4. Many thanks for your quick reply - that helped massively! Yes its restored my scenery library as it was & I have done the insertion point in ORBX. Next time there's an update I won't be running the delete generated files file again 😆. P3D 5.2 HF1 seems to be much more stable though & looks awesome...very happy with this new update! Appreciate the help, Rich
  5. Such a shame to hear about this poor customer service both from simmarket & justsim. I don't really want my money refunded, just want the original product to work properly (& as advertised!). Thanks for keeping us updated on how you are getting on communicating with them (or not!!). Ray - can i just check the location of that SODE folder to try to remove the red Xs? Many thanks, Rich
  6. Hi Dick, I'm in a similar situation with addon scenery after updating P3D....did you simply restore all the files in the recycle bin & problem solved? If so I will do same & will resync orbx again...will this put back my original scenery library order as at the moment it's all over the place following the update? Many thanks for your help & sorry for all the questions, Rich
  7. Nope sadly nothing - emailed in early May as well ☹️ Pretty frustrating, be good to know how you get on with SimMarket…I got mine from them also
  8. Thanks for your help...that makes more sense now. Just had a look in those files & couldn't work out what the issue was tbh. I've emailed the justsim support to try that - will update if i get a reply.
  9. Thanks for your reply ha5mvo...I've just opened the xml file for it and it says this: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <SimBase.Document Type="AddOnXml" version="4,0" id="add-on"> <AddOn.Name>LGRP</AddOn.Name> <AddOn.Description>LGRP</AddOn.Description> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Scenery</Category> <Path>E:\Addons\Scenery\LGRP Rhodes\SimMarket\JUSTSIM - RHODES INL DIAGORAS V2 P3Dv5\data</Path> <Name>JUSTSIM - RHODES INL DIAGORAS V2 P3Dv5</Name> <Layer>203</Layer> </AddOn.Component> </SimBase.Document> How do I see what the missing object folder is from this? I have got other justsim scenery too. Thanks
  10. Same question...any updates or solutions to this? I've just got a brand new computer & P3D setup - also have the red X issue at Rhodes. Thanks

  12. Hi, Sorry for the late reply back. Many thanks both for your advice - Bob that makes sense, I'll have a look at each scenery & check how they want to be installed. Yup thanks Doug, was planning on doing that. No point installing all sorts to then run into trouble & have to work out what's causing the problem. If anyone has any advice on setting up/tweaking graphics settings let me know...otherwise i'll just keep googling, trial & error when my new machine arrives. Looking forward to getting into P3D finally! Cheers, Rich
  13. Hi Bob, Many thanks for your reply. Some great advice there & I'd never heard of that addon manager, looks v useful! Just to check the process then...I would install a downloaded airport into a 'download' folder I create outside the sim, use the xml steps, then use PAOM? Just want to make sure I've got it all correct before I start. Thanks for those other essential software recommendations - will certainly get them. On the graphics side, from what I've read I wont be using EA. I think Active Sky for the weather & REX Skyforce for the clouds is how I want to go. I'm a complete newbie at graphics stuff - is it just trial & error? Also any advice as to where (& what) to start to tweak...P3D settings itself, Nvidia control panel, montior settings etc? Also I just checked its a 10gb RTX 3080 (not 8gb, in case it makes any difference). Many thanks once again for your help with all this. Want to make sure I've done enough prep before my new pc arrives to hopefully hit the ground running 😊. Cheers, Rich
  14. Hi all, I've had a new pc on order for a while & hopefully expecting delivery in the next 4-6 weeks or so. Just after some advice for a new P3D V5 user (previously used fsx few years ago & getting back into flight sim)... 1) Is there any specific order you should install software? I have to install; ORBX sceneries like all the global packs & airports, Aerosoft airports, Active Sky weather, REX Skyforce, PMDG 737NGXu, 737 Immersion v2, Simarket airport sceneries, GSX, Alpha India AI traffic, Chaseplane, Pro ATC 2) Any other essential payware you would recommend? 3) Is it best to install scenery with the addon.xml method as described in this youtube video? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l21SW4KrEM4 4) Are there any recommended graphics settings for my new pc setup? I've got RTX 3080 & AMD 5900x with 32gb of ram. Monitor is a Samsung Odyssey G9 (which I can't wait to use when my new PC arrives 😊). Many thanks in advance for any help/advice. Cheers & stay safe, Rich
  15. Glad you got it sorted in the end! I'm not really gonna go for a 3090....don't need that perf & atm it's an extra £900 to upgrade my order 🤑🙄
