Thread: P3D5.2 Scenery Update and ORBX

  1. #1

    Default P3D5.2 Scenery Update and ORBX

    Having successfully updated the client and content components of P3D 5.2, I am downloading the scenery cabs and getting ready to go for it!

    I have ORBX FTX Global Base and Vector with FTX Scotland installed at present. What is the best way to handle this? Should I un-install all the ORBX stuff first? I'm actually a bit curious to see what the ground scenery will be like with just a stock P3D 5.2 install. If I do un-install ORBX stuff, is there a way to not have to re-download all the big files if I choose to re-install it after the P3D scenery components get installed?

    Thanks!

    Thank you! It had slipped my mind that ORBX has their own forum. Duh!

    `Verify` was all that was necessary on my rig. Didn't even need to re-enter the Orbx sceneries.

    Wondering if any of the ORBX products will need updates, I have several that I bought for FSX and was thrilled to see ORBX just give them to you when you installed Prepar3D

    AFAIK no updates needed, but question how the ORBX accommodates the `new` lighting structure?

    The ORBX products don't need updating specifically for P3Dv5.2. They will all install just fine. If any point updates are needed after the install ORBX Central will update whatever is needed. That's one thing I really like about ORBX...they never make you buy anything twice.

    They are charging when you buy a like product when migrating to MSFS2020. At least they offer a "Bundle" discount to do so that I don't mind taking advantage of instead of waiting for it to go on sale.

    I must do a thorough job of uninstalling a old version of P3D cuz every time I install a new version, I get asked over a 100 times to "Enable a add-ons"

    What file should I keep (and where) to place into a fresh install?

    Use `P3D Delete Generated Files`. In your main P3D folder:
