Upgrading from P3D4.3 to 4.4

Postby paulyg123 » Thu Nov 29, 2018 1:43 am

If I have P3dV4.3 and want to upgrade to v4.4, is it a simple update? Or do I have to re-install all my scenery, PMDG planes etc.? I hope not as that will be such a long process.

It depends on how much you want to do. If it is only the Client, nothing will be affected. Content affects only default content, but if any of that was modified by an add-on there may be some minor problems. PMDG is not affected and other developers are releasing updates to comply with 4.4. Updating the scenery module requires the re-installation of ORB Global Base and ORBX trees. At least this is how I understand it.

OK I only have FlyTampa airports, GSX, FSDT and Imagine Sim airports the PMDG planes and the QW787. So I guess it is a simple update. I am asking this because I am not too smart in re-installing this stuff. So if the upgrade is painless (without un-installling these items( then I'll do it. Please clarify this for me - much appreciated.

I just updated the client and content and havnt found any issues yet with pmdg as of yet, had to uninstall the fsl of course and install the new updated fsl but that was no issues at all. orbx runs well just got to run orbx central for about 15 seconds or so after the update
