Maldives X (FSX) installation in Prepar3D v4 / v5


Recommended Posts

Greetings.

 

I would like to purchase the Aerosoft Maldives X airport (FSX-only compatible) and to try to install it in Prepar3D v4/v5. Can anyone recommend a method to successfully install this scenery in Prepar3D v4/v5? I read an Avsim post where someone recommended to create a fake fsx.exe (from notepad) inside the desired installation folder in order to force the installation in P3D v4 addons folder, but I find it risky, especially since I have to pay upfront for this addon (and if unsuccessful, I lose the money). Can Aerosoft offer an install method or a guarantee that this scenery works in P3D v4/v5? PDMG advises for this addon in their P3D 777 Tutorial, but I fear that the tutorial might've created for FSX then used later for P3D, with disregard for scenery addons compatibility.

 

Thank you.

Hm….Aerosoft will never guarantee for such an old product that it will run in v4/v5.

It might run, no idea. As mentioned, fake fsx.exe in a new blank folder.

Then you get all files and can package them with add-on.xml

That you can then register in the P3D add-on.cfg

 

All own risk. But compared to the IRL airport, that scenery is very, very outdated.

At avsim library is a freeware Maldives main airport designed for P3D.

Thanks. I wonder why Aerosoft doesn't update this addon to newer standards, as it seems they are the only one who developed this airport. A holiday island in the Indian ocean would make for a nice addon, especially a sought-after one, both in virtual and real life. Orbx seems to be doing nice with developing unknown / small airports.

 

A question though: by very outdated, does this mean I will get missing runways / parking spots while using Navigraph?

Missing parking spots. No idea about maybe changed ILS data.

The whole island changed its appearance significantly.
