Several features disabled in V4.3 Academic License

Postby whitav8 » Thu Jun 28, 2018 5:34 pm

Quite a few features are grayed out in the above screen menus for Version 4.3 Academic License - is that expected?
NOTE: I let P3Dv4.3 recreate Prepar3d.cfg - no change

1) Vehicle - Select Vehicle, Fuel and Payload, Failures
2) Navigation - Goto Airport, Flight Planner, Flight Log
3) World - Time and Season, Time Preview, Weather
4) Options - Slew
5) Analysis - Instant Replay

I realize that some of these can still be changed by ending the scenario and using the scenario config page but that is certainly not as convenient

If this is new policy, it seems strange to change it in a minor revision - you really should wait till version 5.0.

Hello,

You should go through the general debugging steps located here:

What you're describing is unique behavior that is not intended.

Turns out it was an older scenario file that had the following "local mission" capability - not sure if that still works anyway. That provided extra objects and the ability to generate moving models - like Sim Director.

The file had the following in it :
<Section Name="ObjectFile">
<Property Name="File" Value="DK2_KCRQ_Heli" />
</Section>
