Re: V5 AFCAD

I have investigated this problem and can confirm that there is no issue with ADE 1.79 compiling v4 and earlier airports with the v5 SDK. The output code is basically identical from v4 to v5 for flat airports. At issue is that LM have made significant changes to airport in v5 recompiling them and add...

Re: default scenery p3dv5

This is common with v5. The simple solution is to exclude the stock data from v5. I wrote an article about how this can be achieved if you are an ADE user. https://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/threads/transferring-p3d-v4-and-earlier-project-files-to-use-with-p3d-v5.447641/ Since there are also changes ...

Re: Prepar3D v5 Ignoring Exclusion zones in AFCAD

This is just a specific confirmation that it is possible to exclude the v5 stock (default) scenery objects and buildings. Using ADE - the latest version 1.79.7422 Load a stock airport Go to Lists > Scenery Objects Sort the list by Is Stock Select all those with Is Stock = true Use the delete key to ...

Re: Prepar3D v5 Ignoring Exclusion zones in AFCAD

One issue is that the v5 stock airports were recompiled with new and different buildings and objects. Existing objects have been moved. If you use ADE for your work then it creates micro excludes for stock objects. If these are created in a project for say v4 then the excludes will probably miss som...

Re: is SDK download necessary?

That's true, but if you really don't need it try running the sim without the SDK installed and see if anything breaks

Re: is SDK download necessary?

I don't think so since the contents are intended for creation and modification of things like aircraft and scenery. However there may be something in there that the Sim looks for in general operation The best thing if no one has a more definitive answer would be to run the Sim without the SDK for a ...

Re: Future of P3D

Those in the know can’t say, so any prediction is inevitably going to be speculation.

Re: Add On Package BGL files priority.

Do you need to use an addon package? I know this is the preferred method now but AFAIK P3D still honors the older priority setting which is done with scenery area order and within that file name.

I am suffering the same issue. FSUIPC is not working with 2.3. I assume this is something that Pete will need to fix. I would also like to roll back since I am now pretty much stuck
