Just wondering if PSX>NET P3D Externalsim is being updated for P3DV5??

I guess this also relies on some free time for dev work :)

PSX.NET P3D ExternalSim works out of the box with P3Dv5+. No update for V5 required.

I tried to get it to work with V5 but it only finds my V4 directories.....
I think that I may have to uninstall V4 and remove all traces to see if that works.....

Hmmmmmm :)

I have both V4 and V5.1 installed without any problems. If you have it setup ok with V4 it should be as easy as opening up the configurator and manually pointing it to your psx aircraft in the simobjects folder of V5.

I did that but methinks V5 does not have simconnect running... Will check further when I get back from my 30th Anniversary trip... (Got to keep the FO happy or she will cut of my sim time)

Congrats on the 30 yrs. Definitely a milestone worth celebrating.

Do you have a V5 addons folder in your documents folder? Unfortunately I have a terrible memory these days. I cant remember  if I needed to create the new P3dV5 addons folder in the c:\documents directory and then copy/ paste the V4 External sim folder which contains the 3 files into it or if it did it by itself.

Congrats Alex!

The installer might not play well with v5, but there is no need to use it if you have ExternalSim working in v4:

1) Copy the folder PS.NET.P3D.ExternalSim from "C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons" to "C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\Prepar3D v5 Add-ons"

2) Copy SimConnect.xml from '%APPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4' to '%APPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v5'

3) Copy the aircraft you used in v4 with Externalsim from  'P3Dv4ROOT\Simobjects\Airplanes'  to 'P3Dv5ROOT\Simobjects\Airplanes'

I suppose we also need to go to galleries and sewing shops and quilting barns.................
