    I purchased the "new and improved" version two days ago and looks like I have the same thing I bought back in 2013: I was under the impression that a P3D style installer that include a "XML" file whereby the install would go to the P3D addon folder. I have same exact files as I purchase before. On a Utube video I viewed it also looked like two different engine sounds were to be included:

    I agree with these two points - the update ‘process’ with MSFS is ridiculous. that said it IS the process. My point is that it is doubly ridiculous that they do not preemptively try to mitigate that with more strident information and guidance. Rather they would scatter their updates on the floor and then see their forums clogged with complaints from folks who struggle to pick them up properly - mixed in with those who did but still have REAL issues. It makes their own reporting system akin to a plate of spaghetti thrown against a red and white paisley wall

    Hi Zsolt, for the first 2 pictures, it is the freeware scenery "Homey KXTA Area 51", here : For the last 4 pictures, it is the payware scenery "Headcorn EGKH" by Burning Blue Design. Link was given by Brad617 on post #1662. Cheers, Richard

    Thank you both, and also for the accidental link for the Hurricane, which is also in my restored FS9. I saw the last Bulldog on what must have been one of its very last flights at Farnborough the day before it crashed.

    For anyone who is running into MSFS updates downloading painfully slowly, try connecting to a VPN and see if that helps. In my case, the MSFS download was only running at about 10Mbps, but after turning my VPN on, the download speed jumped to 40-50Mbps, which makes absolutely zero sense, but apparently it's a common fix for whatever causes that problem.

    Hi, About Rotterdam, does anyone have the double taxisigns? Then please VOTE this topic! See: Also just noticed all the new sceneries use the default name of the "modelLib.BGL" and "objects.bgl" Though this was not wise and could cause CTD's? Marcel

    Talk about Steam... the reason i went with Steam also for MSFS is mostly because it took me a few days and lots of aggrevation and irritation to even get a Microsoft account. "You can't use an email address from your work or school, use a personal email address". That was MS' welcome to try to get an account. Yeah, right, i am retired and i USE a personal email address for god sake ! WTF !?? ( i am from the Netherlands..). Second reason, all my sims and other games i bought via Steam. Never a problem always smooth as butter, fast as furious. Particularly the best thing since sliced bread when it comes to reinstall. Like it's always been before when there's an update, i start MSFS, get a screen that says "checking for updates", get a screen that tells about the update with a button that...

    No, what I uploaded is what there is, and the missing bf109s are those of IS4G that canceled them, because without permission I cannot modify their files.

    Similar situation. The download link from my original FSX version gives me the v1.0b. How would I get the download for the upgraded P3D version, or the updated files?

    Should be available in the CFS3 Skins/British Skins section of the Warbirds Library once it's approved.

    The issue is the update ritual in the first place. I dont think they need big red letters reminding you that you need to do that sort of update dance each and every time a point update is done. It shouldnt be required in the first place. How it should work is this. Update released > platform updates > game updates. Dont mess with user placed files , work out what that user has already got installed ( they already do know this due to always on connectivity ) and automatically update it. Rather than expect the end user to remember to check the content manager afterwards. BTW. I had forgotten to check the content manager. Why ? I have a tonne of other things on at the moment and just assumed that it would just update. How about a tickbox called auto-updates enabled like steam has on...

    Xbox store - then Marketplace - then Content manager - and in that order. Don't understand why they at MS don't stipulate this in big red letters once you are directed to the 'mandatory update'. Every update is the same - folks who've been here a while as well as those who are brand new to this sim make the same mistakes or complain that items are missing because they didn't know or miss-remembered the thing.
