From my knowledge you can upgrade from ANY former SIMstarter NG serial within the Aerosoft Shop (I need to validate this):

 

  1. Checkout SIMstarter NG P3D
  2. Login with your account (email should match with the email from the initial purchase)
  3. Enter your former Serial (SIMstarter NG) at "Voucher"
  4. See if you get the reduced price
  5. Buy it

Hi Peter,

 

Will SIMstarter NG P3D eventually be available from PC Aviator?  I bought the original version from there so was hoping to buy at the upgrade price.

 

Best regards,

Dennis

Sorry, I don't know. It will be deployed to a lot of shops. They may need some time. You could try to get the upgrade price in the aerosoft shop.

I bought Simstarter NG from Simmarket on 3/30/20. I asked them about getting the free upgrade(purchased within last 30 days) and they told me that  if it's not in my Simmarket account to download        (it isn't), then I need to contact you guys directly about it.  Can you please tell me what I need to do to get the upgrade. 

 

Thanks

Hi Captain Pero,

 

Any plans to implement network support so that the GUI can run on an instructor station in this new version?

Not at the moment. Next big release will focus on enhancing the SceneryManager.

Hi

No issue here anymore. I was able to get the discount at the check out on Aerosoft site


Just looking to understand what my options to take advantage of the upgrade discount.
I have purchased the SIMstarter thru FSPS store and
as they do not sell the new version I have no option to update at the discounted rate.
My option at the point is to purchase the new version from either Aerosoft or Simmarket at full price.
I would appreciate if you can please let me know what my options are...
Thank you,
Mike

Neues aus der Entwicklung: Der SceneryManager wurde nun komplett überarbeitet und 90% Code ersetzt. Der vorherige war noch FSX basierend und eigentlich nicht nativ für PREPAR3D entwickelt. Das hat sich mit dem neuen geändert. Man sollte einen massiven Performancevorteil der GUI bemerken. So dauert das laden von 644 Szenerieobjekten bisher 13 Sekunden. Mit dem neuen Manager dauert es 1-2 Sekunden (507 Add-On.xml / 137 Scenery.cfg Objekte auf meinem System).

Der neue SceneryManager wird gerade vom BETA Team getestet.

For example, loading 644 scenery objects used to take 13 seconds. With the new manager it takes 1-2 seconds (507 Add-On.xml / 137 Scenery.cfg objects on my system).

The new SceneryManager is currently being tested by the BETA Team.

It's normal you use v1.9.2 of Simstarter and you must use version 2.0.0 rev 175 of SimStarter for P3Dv5.

Check the info here : https://www.aerosoft.com/en/flight-simulation/prepar3d-v4/tools-missions/3064/simstarter-ng-p3d

Note: Some users of v5 with Hotfix 1 report, that add-on.xml files with missing value in AddOn.Description can cause the Simulator not to load. Good new for you guys: SIMstarter NG P3D saves no Description if the value = NULL. If you are affected, just open the Scenery Manager, modify anything (sort one down and up again) > click "Yes" to save changes which "repairs" all add-on.xml files. Should work... 😉

Moin Pero,

nach dem Update, bzw Neuinstallation des P3Dv5 findet der Simstarter die dll.xml und exe.dll nicht. Das Programm hat unter Programmeinstellunhen die beiden Felder orange unterlegt.

Tatsächlich ist unter Appdata/Roaming/Lockheed Martin/P3dv5 auch tatsächlich keine dll hinterlegt.

Kanst du mir da weiterhelfen?

 

Gruß

Joachim

Das neue Update wird massive Verbesserungen hervor bringen. Der neue Scenery Manager ist nun nicht nur rasend schnell, er kann auch Szenerien in add-on.xml auslagern, hat ein ordentlicher Fehlermanagement (falls Szenerien doppelt sind), man kann ordentlich filtern usw. Aber auch der Add-On.xml Manager wurde an vielen Stellen überarbeitet. Der SimConfigBackup Manager hat nun eine Sucheingabe, damit es leichter ist, gesicherte Dateien im Backup zu finden. Es macht sehr viel Spaß mit dem neuen Release zu arbeiten. Wir sind mittlerweile schon beim testen der Release Candidates - aber es wird wohl noch ein paar Tage dauern, bis die "Banane nicht mehr grün ist"...

Schönen Sonntag Euch!

The new update will bring massive improvements. The new Scenery Manager is now not only blazing fast, it can also swap sceneries to add-on.xml, has a proper error management (if sceneries are duplicated), you can filter properly etc. But also the Add-On.xml Manager has been reworked in many places. The SimConfigBackup Manager now has a search entry so that it is easier to find backed up files in the backup. It is a lot of fun to work with the new release. We are already testing the Release Candidates - but it will probably take a few days until the "banana is no longer green"...

Have a nice Sunday!

 

See planned release notes for further information.
