    Default Has anyone updated to v4.5?

    I've been running v4.4 with bunches of Orbx scenery, several 3rd party GA, and Active Sky, and have no problems with it *knocks on wood*. I'm usually pretty good about installing software and OS updates... except when it comes to my flight sim stuff. From reading posts here and elsewhere online since picking up this hobby almost 6 months ago, flight sim stability seems to balance on a razor's edge and the thought of throwing mine all off kilter for a minor update scares the holy you-know-what out of me.

    I'm wondering if anyone has updated to 4.5 and what your experience has been?

    Hello,
    First some words about my PC config : I have a dual boot and on system 2 I always have a P3D BASIC ( no addons) and I first update this system 2 so that I can check what is in the new folders and compare with the folders content of the P3d on system 1.
    4.5 Installed, I had No problems . I started with the client and tested = all OK.
    After I checked what was changed in the content … and so on. ...

    Drops in FPS are reported with ORBX and v. 4.5 - I don't have ORBX, no problems seen here with 4.5.

    I updated a couple of days ago. So far, no issues. I have ORBX Global Base and Vector.

    I have installed the new 4.5 Client and Content without any issues. I also have a lot of ORBX addons, but I have not noticed any fps loss at all. I just haven't taken the time to download the new Scenery because it doesn't look like there was much change that affects me. I do however highly recommend using an MD5 checksum utility to make sure your download from Prepar3d is complete, accurate and not corrupt.

    Done on five systems so far. Including my own. Seems to be working fine - apart from the drop in FPS reported by certain individuals.
    Doesn't seem to affect mine, but have adopted (for the first time) unlimited FPS on slider settings.

    Anywho, Hotfix incoming will only be for v4.5, so why wouldn't you change?

    Yup. Also several installs with no issues. Also installed the scenery module. Don't know if it's my imagination but the colors seem crisper.

    I gave 4.5 a go before realizing that ActiveSky needs an update to work with it. I ended up going back to 4.4 until AS is updated. I did notice a slight FPS drop while using 4.5 but I also noticed that the major stutters I have in several areas near my home airport in 4.4 are not there in 4.5. So I'm certainly looking forward to being able to move on up.

    AS was updated the day 4.5 was released.
