FSX Stuff in P3D V4.1

Recommended Posts

Ignoring the inevitable, "Why would you?" comments that are likely to follow this, has anyone tried or does anyone know if it's possible to successfully load and use FSX add-on stuff in P3D V4.1?  I have a few favorites that are not available for P3D...

 

  • Dree's KOCF scenery
  • Ship Traffic
  • Carenado C-182RG
  • Carenado C-210
  • Captain Sim C-130
  • Default FSX C-172
  • Default FSX Caravan

 

There are probably some others I haven't thought of yet.  I know that there are payware equivalents for at least the C-172 (and probably some of the others) that have been created for P3D, but not sure I want it THAT bad.

 

Another question - some software that has been ported or created for P3D was probably done under P3D V3 or earlier.  Will that work under P3D V4.1?

You have to re-download the Carenado Centurion, it has been already updated for P3D 4.1.

I don't think CS C-130 will work, as it is full of 32 bit gauges.

Can't say for the other stuff.

John, there is a copy of the latest ai ships in our staff reviewers Dropbox, I have merged V1 and V2 so it's now compatible with P3Dv4.

 

The two files are also available from AVSHIT as seperate downloads for non-crew. After some sleep, I can probably help you with some of the others. ;)

@allardjd Dree's KOCF (SP1) works fine in P3D4v but you have to add it manually, I'll PM you later :)

 

A few shots - Ah! the memories!

The Carenado aircraft you can re-download and they will be up to date.

 

The Herc, I don't think will work as Ros says

 

The Default FSX stuff - ditch and make a wish list and give it to Pam!

I have tried the FSX:Steam Edition C172 and have not found any issues yet.

 

I've done that and it appears to be OK but all versions have a plain white livery.  Interior, panels, etc. all look normal.

Got it!  Did you ever see this on the back side of one of the taxiway signs?  You thought all those Little Johnny mischief jokes were just fiction, didn't you?

Ah yes! I remember that (now!) nice touch, I wonder whatever happened to Dree, still on the high seas?

I haven't heard from him in years.  Last I knew he was out of flight simming and caging his patio to raise wild birds.

Has anyone tried using ships in P3D v4.1?

 

I want to add some aircraft carriers to P3D V4.1 but I don't know if it is possible.

I'm using Ships in P3Dv4 JG but as for adding ships, I can't answer you.

Its interesting that wherever I fly now, there appear to be ships where you least expect them. It's a fun addition.

Have a look here: https://flyawaysimulation.com/downloads/files/2687/fsx-ai-carriers/ I used this neat little problem many years ago and it did the job.

 

Not sure if it will work in V4 as it just says P3D so could mean V1 which is the same as FSX.

:hat:
