I have P3d 4.5 and 5 installed on my F drive.  I have earlier used a symbolic link to placed an Orbx folder on my G drive.  After installing v5, I created an Orbx Library on the G drive that has two folders, one for v4 and one for v5.  Do I need a symbolic link from the v5 root folder on the F drive to the G drive?  I had thought not, but it would be far from the first time I was wrong.

Hello,

no you don't, P3D references those files using its own add-ons system.

That's what I was afraid of!  It appears that none of my V5 products is working.   They are all enabled in the drop-down list in v5 options.  Should there be anything in the add-ons dropdown?  There isn't.  There is also no mention of Orbx in my v5 add-ons folder in Documents.

Hello,

there are two in-game add-on drop down items.

One is in the list accessed by clicking on Options.

That contains a list of your add-on scenery, software and aircraft.

The other is at the right hand end of the drop down menu and will

contain add-on software that is at work, such as SODE or Accufeel

of FSUIPC.

 

Orbx does not use the Documents folder any more, so no surprise there.

Should there be any Orbx in the right-hard drop down?  I don't think any of my Orbx is working.

No buildings. Screenshot of KHAF.  Other airports are similar.  Lots of car traffic, though. 1728568216_Screenshot2020-05-1713_33_00.thumb.png.48cc3c29e2f122968b6b5271f68b679f.png

Hello,

it has already been mentioned that LM have changed some building definitions, so that some, or possibly many

existing airports that reference the same default buildings that are no longer there will have missing buildings.

Here is the release announcement for the first set of fixes.

I applied those.  Let me try one of them, KHAF wasn't one of them.

Here are two screenshots of basically the same view in 4.5 and 5.  Tried KIDA, one on Holger's list.  No buildings, although there was a radar tower and a shack.

Tried a gate at IDA.  Pair of jetways and a control tower, no other buildings. Reinstalled KHAF, no change.

Hello,

can I ask you to create an Orbx Central Library on your F drive, where P3D is and add KIDA to it

please. Then see if the buildings appear. Thanks.

Too early in the morning in New Mexico.  KIDA isn't available for v5 yet.   I will check with an airport that is compatible.  Sorry.

Hello,

sorry, I meant FTX Central Rockies:  KBIL, KBOI, KBZN, KGTF, KHLN, KIDA, and KPSC adjusted

Put Central Rockies in my F drive.  No change on KIDA.  Also, jetways, no buildings at KBLI and KHLN.

Looking more like I need to reinstall.  All my products are in the V5 part of Central.  I don't think just uninstalling there and reinstalling will work, so I think I should delete the folders on my G drive and set up new ones.

Here are the Orbx folders in root folders of V4.5 and v5.  Is there a reason why they are so dissimilar?

Hello,

evidently you have either fewer products installed into your P3D v5 folder and possibly more installed into an Orbx Central Library.

You don't need Vector in P3D v5, it is not compatible.

As far as I know when I set up v5, I didn't put anything into the v5 folder.  Everything was supposed to go into an Orbx Central Library. No idea were Vector came from.  Should I uninstall the products in the v5 folder and reinstall them to a Library?  Just delete Vector?

Re-installed P3d.  Things are sorted now. Thanks.
