    Thank you to Mathijs and developers for bringing so many existing airports over to P3D V4 and even adding some nice Dynamic Lighting support. So far all this work has been provided for "free" upgrades, very much appreciated! I'd be more than willing to pay for upgrade costs relative to the work investment required for those upgrades as I know moving from V3 to V4 can bring some challenges that need to be overcome. Keep up the great work/support for P3D V4. Cheers, Rob.

    Aerosofts market approach and pricing for their Airbuses surely is not based on preventing piracy, but to maximise sales numbers by reaching customers who wouldn't want to spend more money or also don't want to spend time to learn how to fly a study level aircraft. I for example liked it quite a lot that even when I started flying the AS busses I was able to got to bed after having already a long day in the office and where able to finish my flights successfully. Surely at the beginning totally relying on the FO's helpful hand. The last seven years have proven Aerosoft being on the totally right track with their approach. Other companies are doing things differently, but that shouldn't be the topic here. Also we shouldn't try to read something from posts which isn't in it. I for myself for example haven't read from tomtom_9's post that he is using pirated software. So, let's just close this pricing topic here. Aerosoft have explained their market and pricing approach many times here in the forums. Everyone being interested in more details will find the forum search to be a really helpful tool to find all those statements

    Mathijs, Thank for your answer. I had prepared myself to be blasted for my comments, instead I was pleased to read your response and feel much more at ease based on your honesty and choice of words. I am still feeling inpatient, however I will do my best to keep it in check. Call it misguided excitement if you will. I am very much looking forward to release, and have a somewhat renewed sense of optimism. Here's to hoping "pretty darned" is in-fact soon

    Hi, with the release of Prepar3Dv4 a lot changed regarding the activation of SODE inside Prepar3D v3 and v4, because SODE 1.5.x now works different.For FSX and P3Dv2 it is still the old technique! If you run Prepar3D v2, you can find the old guide here: If you are running FSX or FSX-SE, you will find the guide here: Make sure you have the newest scenery installers, that support SODE 1.3 and newer. With the switch from 1.2 to 1.3 the SODE structure was changed, and some functions don't work any longer with "old" addons (they had to be recompiled and rerelased by the developers). If your installer/addon does not support the new structure you have to migrate manually (how, is written in the Guide, see at the end). Important: Don't mix up C:\Program Files (x86)\12bPilot\SODE\ C:\ProgramData\12bPilot\SODE\ You can choose the install folder for SODE during installation, so only C:\Program Files (x86)\12bPilot\SODE\ can be different! You can also try to run the SODEPlatformManager.exe. Unregister and deactivate SODE then Register and activate it again. Maybe it helps. Ok, let’s start (only for Prepar3D v3 and v4!): With the change from 1.4.x to 1.5.x the dll.xml and exe.xml is no longer needed. 1. Install your addons 2. Install latest SODE (1.5.2) from http://sode.12bpilot.ch/ 3. Check if everything is correct (for P3Dv3 change v4 to v3 and remove the 64) 3.1. use the add-ons.cfg in C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 the correct entry is: [Package.0] PATH=C:\Program Files (x86)\12bPilot\SODE\P3Dv4 TITLE=SODE ACTIVE=true REQUIRED=false there can be more entries, the order is not important, make sure that the numbering is consistent [0,1,2,3,...] in the whole sequence. 3.2. use the add-on.xml in C:\Program Files (x86)\12bPilot\SODE\P3Dv4 the correct entry is: <SimBase.Document Type="AddOnXml" version="3,3" id="add-on"> <AddOn.Name>SODE</AddOn.Name> <AddOn.Description>SimObject Display Engine P3Dv4 (c) 12bPilot</AddOn.Description> <AddOn.Component> <Category>EXE</Category> <Path>..\SimObjectDisplayEngine.exe</Path> <CommandLine>P3Dv4</CommandLine> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>DLL</Category> <Path>..\SimObjectAnimationModule64.dll</Path> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>SimObjects</Category> <Path>..\data\SimObjects</Path> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>SimObjects</Category> <Path>C:\ProgramData\12bPilot\SODE\SimObjects</Path> </AddOn.Component> </SimBase.Document> 3.3 the addon specific SODE files belong to this folders (not all installers move them there automatic, then read the addon manuals!): C:\ProgramData\12bPilot\SODE\SimObjects C:\ProgramData\12bPilot\SODE\xml Example: There are some addons that handle the simobjects different than the SODE developer guidelines. For example ENAT and TNCB. C:\ProgramData\12bPilot\SODE\xml [FS_ROOT_FOLDER]\SimObjects\Misc More Information about SODE is available in section downloads at http://sode.12bpilot.ch/ Read: SODE User Guide SODE Migration Guide SODE Filesystem Overview

    Please make sure to run the SODE installer as Administrator. When restarting P3D afterwards please start it as Administrator as well.

    Hello, Here's my virtual cockpit As you can see, rudder pedals, power lever, propeller lever and fuel lever, are built in the yoke (very economic version). But one day all levers will be located higher and attatched to the upper shelf. Guess why Also, charts and checklists are always at hand.

    Let's be clear on this, we do NOT support any compatibility with software that depends on Direct X versions that are 18 years old.

    That's completely fine with me. I'll gladly pay some upgrade fee for renewed Prepar3d4-compatible versions. Kind regards, Michael

    Here's some new files that should solve the problem for now. Unzip it and replace the old files with the new ones. The use of metar visibility in the model placement has been removed, since it looks like that's the variable being changed by FSinn when the model disappear. Vaeroy FSinn fix.7z

    Hi Alaex, Deine GTX 1060 hat auch 3GB _mehr_ an Speicher. Der von myulu angegebene Speicher hat mich auch erst verwundert. Nur, es gibt tatsächlich unterschiedliche Grafikkarten unter der gleichen Typenbezeichnung 1060. Mit 6GB Speicher hätte ich die Karte unter "alles bestens" eingestuft, mit seinen 3GB war ich da vorsichtiger mit meiner Antwort. myulu sollte das Rückgabeangebot von LM in Anspruch nehmen und den neuen v4 unter die Lupe nehmen Bei Nichtgefallen kann er den FSX immer noch nehmen Ahoj -Uwe

    When there is real work involved we will not hesitate to ask for some money. Many of our mega airports will soon be overhauled and those upgrades will not be free. But thanks for the kind words!

    > Reicht die Karte für P3D aus? sie ist knapp über dem Minimum, würde ich mal so sagen. Wenn Du nichts in die Hardware finanzieren möchtest, und lieber Freeware Dir zulegen möchtest, dann bleibt nur der FSX übrig. Traditionell wäre es der MS FSX mit dem sicherlich mehr an Freeware/Payware. Die Steam Edition, wenn man an die Zukunft von dieser Edition glaubt. (Das wird natürlich nur was, wenn die Umsatzzahlen bei Dovetail stimmen.) Ich wollte Dir auch nur zwei - von mehreren - Alternativen aufzeigen. Mehr nicht. Die Entscheidung liegt bei Dir Ahoj -Uwe PS. Dein Film bezieht sich auch auf eine mehrere Jahre alte Version des P3D. Solchen Filmen traue ich noch weniger als meinen eigenen frisierten Statistiken

    i think you have missunderstood that guy, hi is saying that people will crack the plane if they see a high price. he is not justifying people who stole all the work and effort and has no sense in my opinion to assume that if tom tom is concerned about piracy means that he is a rat bastard (c by Misterkok) its a huge problem to see how people feel the have the right to stole a digital product, because no consequences , because they can.. This is the most basic principle and germ of corruption) cheers

    Yes. I found this script here https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/54452-rebuild-font-cache-windows-10-a.html and it's working now!! I think the key must be FNTCACHE.DAT because I did all steps manually but didn't know about FNTCACHE.DAT. Now the font works even after reboot.

    Well, I do share your feelings about this to a great degree. I have however seen projects take this long and it almost always ended in a project that was never released. As the project manager I have to take responsibility for this and I have tried to explain several times in some detail what went 'wrong'. In essence it boils down to falling behind early in the project in a field that is moving at breakneck speed. We have seen an almost 50% increase in lines of code (and polygons) per year for the last 5 years. Add to that some bad luck and developers who need to make a living while being behind on a project and you are in deep brown stuff. I think that the people who supported us understood that only enthusiasm and perseverance could safe this project. And please believe me, it does make a world of difference. It brought us to where we are now, pretty darned close to a release.

    This (year)??? OMG... Believe me, I am anxiously anticipating this plane, especially now that P3D V4 is out, but really folks.. I get it, there have been multiple delays and restarts on this program, but I have never seen a project take this long. And for all of you "keep up the great work" forum members that give critics like me bad marks - what "great work" exactly are you praising?? Certainly not timeliness. I'm patient like the next guy, but I've been watching this thread for roughly 3 out of the past 6+ years. How much patients can a guy have? Sure screenshots look very nice, but until I get a plane in hand, I can't offer blind critique (good or bad). With the limited V4 aircraft out there, I feel forced to go with a competitor in the short-term future. Let's face it, good planes aren't cheap, and I can't (won't) afford a hanger full of them. Please don't dismiss this as just another vengeful forum member venting frustration. I am an excited potential customer, however I can't (won't) wait forever. The P3D V4 release of PMDG's 737 ngx is right around the corner. Albeit a bit dated software, and I'm sure won't be as pretty as the CRJ. I feel like I will be forced to make a decision between waiting an unknown amount of time (after already waiting 3+ years personally) and going with something tried and true. Now that we are hearing "Possibly" in 2017, I am pushed even further away. I only wish we had some form of hope as to when a projected release time frame was. Q3? Q4? 2018? Surely Aerosoft has one, just not publishing it for fear of bad publicity if it isn't released within that time frame. Believe me, I get it, but is the project so unstable that even a rough estimate cannot be discussed? (I know I know.... this has been answered many times, yada yada. - It is still a valid question, and deserves a "better" answer if people are expected to wait an indefinite amount of time for the hopes of what appears to be a very nice product. I'm not alone in my feelings.... In anxious anticipation...

    Anchorage (PANC) is not "old", it is uptodate, but needs changes in some parts. It is on the update roadmap of Simwings, but not at the toplevel, so needs some weeks. Same as Fairbanks (PAFA)

    SIMstarter NG has been tested with P3Dv4 already. Some features can't be support until FSUIPC (and the FSUIPC Client DLL) is not 64 compatible. There will be an update soon after the official release. Yes and it will be free of charge for existing SIMstarter NG customers.

    Now it's getting dark around my paintshop. Soon I live in the catacombs of my house and feel like an "underground worker". With 3 girls and a woman I had to be in the "underground" for space reasons. So it is probably in Stuttgart, not just for the trainstation. My report will be continued when I get back to the daylight.

    Version 1.4 (XP10), 1.41 (XP11)


    ENGLISH: This is Hartenholm (EDHM). My "home airport". Version 1.4 with an FlyIn addon for X-Plane 10.51 and v. XP11-1.41 for X-Plane 11. I built it as a pure library based airfield with the World Editor (WED) V1.5/1.6. The buildings and objects are all used from different libraries and thus do not conform 100% reality. But all objects are in the right places and are as close to reality as possible with library objects. Furthermore, I have tried to give the airport a "real" look. Installation and infos: Please read the Hartenholm-readme.txt / Hartenholm-readme-xp11.txt (included in the zip download). Have fun with the airfield....

    If you have used all the things provided in the first post correctly, you would be completely without problems. And if so, then you must be truly special case ;-) Also... we would be more than happy to have P3Dv4 installer, but that is only under condition that Aerosoft would bother make one. There is need for new installers way before v4 went out. But Aerosoft is either lazy or incompetent enough to do that :-) And that is a fact.

    So, i should assume you already "cracked" PMDG aircrafts or Flight Sim labs ones ? good job you are doing, flight student. And if you are not ready to fairly buy these high tech softwares, go fishing maybe ? What is 48/50 euros compared with PMDG's 180 dollars ? But i will stop. I don't want to get caught by Aerosoft's deputies.... Dom Mason
