    John, Content includes the new rain effect also. I investigate how to install Content and have all addons/sceneries as it was before 4.1:

    Hi,
    I saw this post of Elaine
    viewtopic.php?f=6322&t=126976#p168163
    The Content component will remove and update the following folders below

    Install_ Content.msi - Scripts, redist, SimObjects, Weather, Scenarios, Ecosystem, Fonts, Autogen, Effects, gauges, Sound, Texture

    This process will only remove and update Default Prepar3D files, It will not remove or overwrite Extra files (non default) that you have in place
    I didnt install yet 4.1 (update only) but is it possible to install Client + Content only (for the rain effect) without reinstalling whole Sim? So to have my "old" SimObject's addons/ORBX and scenery ? Any advices or tips for this?

    Maybe do the backup of: Scripts, Redist, SimObjects, Weather, Scenarios, Ecosystem, Fonts, Autogen, Effects, Gauges, Sound, Texture folders and after this copy and past without overwrite option? What do You think?

    I tried getting ORBX to work with 4.1, FTX Central does not recognize it as V4, at least I could not get it to, and I was following the instructions linked to on avsim. I had renamed my original 4.0 folder and installed 4.1, moving the orbx folder into it, no luck. For now I have swapped back to 4.0 until ORBX does an update.

    Sorry, you do not have permission... Tried to sign in. I guess I used the wrong password? After ONE attempt, ORBX locked me out for 15 mins.

    THANK YOU ORBX!

    I too rolled back to V4. My reasoning had to do more with Flight1's 650/750, however. When all of that is worked out, I will reload v.1.

    FYI: When I rolled back the Client, I left the Content on V4.1. So, far everything seems to work fine.

    John, Flight1 has released version 2.04 of GTN Complete. Go to the Flight1 GTN page and download the installer... it says v2.03 on the page, and nothing about the installer reveals that it is v2.04, but it is. Do not try to update using the F1Updater... just install v2.04 over v2.03.

    Installed Today 4.1 Client + Content + PTA 2.6, no any problems (for the last 30 minutes).
    FSUiPC is the new, REX TD/SC works as before, Active Sky with update too, no problem also with SPAD.next (just installed LVAR bridge again).
    I see rain also now in VC.

    This would normally be an update I'd pass on as it doesn't produce any huge improvements over V4. . .seems to be more just minor fixes and the early beginnings of other functions (rain). However I have learned to just roll with it and do the upgrades, if for no other reason than to not be behind in the version numbers when a major update is finally released (too much catching up to do). As someone earlier in this thread mentioned. . .it isn't exactly V4.1. . .it's more like V4.001, lol.

    Is it possible to turn off this HEALTH POINTS=1 (in Shift+Z) option.
    What is it? X-Box feature, kudos for life pilot ????



    Edit:
    I'll try it https://www.microsoft.com/Products/G...ngShift-Z.aspx .

    I installed using the new version after uninstalling the old last night. When I checked the updater, it also updated the new installation. Works fine, though.

    In the same way as it has never recognised P3D v3.x or P3D v2.x as other
    than P3D v3 and P3D v2.

    There is now an updated version of FTX Central, version 3.2.3.0, which includes
    everything required for P3D v4.1.
    At the top left you will continue to see P3Dv4.
    I would be happy if it saw it at all. Before upgrading to 4.1 I would start FTXCenteral and I could choose
    FSX Steam
    P3D V3
    P3D v4

    After upgrading to 4.1 I can choose
    FSX Steam
    P3D V3


    I just deleted FTX Central and re-installed, its still 3.2.1.1, I am now trying to find 3.2.3.0 but am not having much luck.

    Edit: I finally figured out how to join the ORBX fast lane and have FTX 3.2.3.0 installed but no change in the results, I have created a support ticket on the ORBX Forum.

    Basically, in P3D health points refer to all simobjects. A simobject with a healthpoint =0 has been killed. Displaying this for the "own" object was announced in the v4.1 version log:

    - Health points for the ownship are now displayed in InfoGen text

    see: https://prepar3d.com/news/2017/10/114527/

    Would be fun to write a little gauge that sets the counter to zero upon pressing a certain key. Wonder what happens then.

    Have to say I am disappointed with some aspects (the front end is pitiful still as I mentioned elsewhere). I haven't had P3D since v2. Mesh being a big one. Compared to FSX with Pilots 2010 mesh the P3D mountains are hill like. Pilots 2010 won't install to v4. So what is considered a good (cheap/free) alternative. I am not going to get into buying much in the way of add-ons again.
    so to summarize,
    Mesh suggestions please.

    Use the mesh you already have, it will look just the same in P3D as it does in FSX.
    You don't need to install it, just add it to your P3D v4 scenery library from wherever
    you have it installed now.
    Probably all your scenery addons will work in P3D too.

    OK thanks, I will try Nick's suggestion first and if that fails I'll go for the freemesh option. I just don't want to get into having to reinstall the thing if it all goes tits up, I remember it sometimes took a while with LM under v2 for the re-licensing to get ok'd.

    OK Than ks Nick After a bit of editing examples of with and without. Though not spectacular difference, it is noticeable and I dare say once I move away from North America where the default mesh is less defined then the addition of Pilots will be moreso. Default Mt Baker WA with Pilots 2010 Mesh. A slightly different angle but not very far off.

    Next question....... What are these Health Points =1 all about? Nothing within the sim about it and I haven't found anything by Googling....

    basically once you kill an badie you can either pick up more ammo or a health pack to replenish your health or top up ammo

    oh wait, wrong game, for a minute I thought P3D was a shooter game

    health points, pffftttt a waste of energy and time in a general sim use
