    So today I took the plunge and bought, downloaded and installed P3D v. 4.1 - or at least it said 4.1. Now I have a couple more questions:

    1. How does one see that it really is 4.1

    2. How does one update, if necessary

    3. Is there a tweaking guide out there on the lines of Kosta's guide for FSX

    Thanks in advance -

    Jorgen

    I have found a tuning guide that gave me some tips.

    New question:

    From Googling installation of scenery, it seems that if the scenery should work with P3D, but is installed somewhere in the depths of FSX, I should be able to use it in P3D without reinstalling.

    Is that assumption on my part correct?

    Thanks -

    Partially.

    If the scenery uses elements that are no longer recognized by the new 64-bit architecture the scenery will not work. If the scenery uses library objects that are not installed and appropriate for P3D, the scenery will not work.

    Secondly, if the scenery is optimised for FSX that really doesn't mean it is optimised for P3D.

    ALWAYS look for P3Dv4.x-updated scenery.

    You need to be very, very cautious shovelling FSX stuff into P3D, but technically, it is easier to do so than in Microsoft versions of old. YOu can test by simply adding .xml links, but you need to research how to do that as if you get it wrong it's curtains for your installation.

    That said, the installation is far quicker to updates, repair and reinstall than in any version of FSX.

    I found out the assumption was correct, it works very much like Scenery Configuration Editor in FSX.
