    Hello ladies and gentlemen,
    First off, Happy New Year and all the best to you and your families in 2018.  This month my idea is to give something back to our founder who has put a lot of work over the years into creating, maintaining and refining this community into what we have today.  Therefore this tour is dedicated to @OMGEDSON and his family's heritage.  Pilots, we're on our way to Bolivia!  Here we will experience varied terrain from the 5th highest airport in the world in La Paz to the low lands, rainforests and salt flats.  This is a long one, so be sure to pull from the hangar a high performance twin turbine.  Again, Happy New Year to you all and enjoy the tour.

    The stricken Challenger 604, which suffered G over-stress after running afoul of an A380's wake at the beginning of the year, made its final flight back to Germany in the belly of an Antonov 124. It spent the entire year on the ground at Muscat International Airport, where it made an emergency landing after the incident.

    I would really like to see the Citation X in v4 as soon as possible, as my current Generation 2 is stranded in the 32 bit world.

  21. FlyingJock liked a post in a topic by tarpoon in Installing RealAir Legacy and the Turbine Duke as P3D V4 Add-ons   
    Luckily for us the fantastic RealAir Lancair Legacy and Turbine Duke V2 works out of the box in P3D V4! 
    We're now going to look at a three options when installing the planes into V4. 
    Installing options
    1. Use the installer and install directly into the P3D V4 folder.
    Except for a couple of warnings the first time you install a RealAir plane, this works just fine.
    But, in V4 all add-ons are expected to be installed outside the main P3D folder. So the next option will install these planes as an Add-on, where the plane is installed somewhere else on your disk.
    2. Installing as an add-on using the command line
    If you want to keep things tidy, install the plane into a folder of your choosing, but not the P3D V4 folder.
    Then you will need to create an add-on.xml file in the root folder where you installed the plane. I'm using the Duke as an example below.
    Add the following to the add-on.xml you just created;
    <SimBase.Document Type="AddOnXml" version="4,0" id="add-on">     <AddOn.Name>RealAir Turbine Duke</AddOn.Name>     <AddOn.Description>RealAir Turbine Duke</AddOn.Description>     <AddOn.Component>         <Category>SimObjects</Category>         <Path>SimObjects\Airplanes</Path>     </AddOn.Component>     <AddOn.Component>         <Category>Effects</Category>         <Path>Effects</Path>         <Type>GLOBAL</Type>     </AddOn.Component> </SimBase.Document> Save the file.
    Make sure the file is located in the root folder where you installed the plane;

    The next step is to make P3D V4 aware of the plane you just installed. You will be doing this by using the preferred method mentioned in the SDK, by using the command line;
    s:\Prepar3Dv4\Prepar3D.exe "-Configure: Category=Add-on Package, Operation=Add, Title=RealAir Turbine Duke, Path=s:\planes\Turbine Duke V2 P3D3" In the line above, replace the location of Prepar3D.exe and the path to the install folder of the plane.
    Optional create a add.bat file in the same location as the add-on.xml where you add the line above.
    After the command line has executed, the plane is available to use in the simulator. 
    Note: The command line added an entry in c:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\add-ons.cfg
    3. Adding an add-on.xml to <user>\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons
    Thanks to FlyBye for pointing out an even simpler way to do this. 
    Create a new folder under your 'C:\Users\yourusername\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons\ and call it RealAir Turbine Duke;

    Then you will need to create an add-on.xml file in the RealAir Turbine Duke folder you just created;
    <SimBase.Document Type="AddOnXml" version="4,0" id="add-on"> <AddOn.Name>RealAir Turbine Duke</AddOn.Name> <AddOn.Description>RealAir Turbine Duke</AddOn.Description> <AddOn.Component> <Category>SimObjects</Category> <Path>s:\Planes\Turbine Duke V2 P3D3\SimObjects\Airplanes</Path> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Effects</Category> <Path>s:\Planes\Turbine Duke V2 P3D3\Effects</Path> <Type>GLOBAL</Type> </AddOn.Component> </SimBase.Document> Make sure the two path elements points to the location where you have installed the plane.
     
    Start Prepar3D
    You will get a question if you want to enable the plane when the sim is starting up. Click Yes.
    Back in P3D V4, when you have loaded a flight, select Options->Add-ons in the menu. You will then see the following dialog;

    There you got it! All nice and tidy. And no cluttering of the P3D V4 folder! If using option 3, the Directory will show you the add-on folder in your Documents folder.
    Good luck.
