I have them installed without any issues at all. What's wrong exactly?

Tried using the auto updater? Are they added using the xml method? If they are, do u also have them in the scenery.cfg? That caused issues for me the 1st time i installed FSDT airportd in V4.

Thanks for responding.

I downloaded the most recent installers from the page. I started with #1. It listed all sims up to P3DV3 but not 4. I continued anyway thinking that it would work because folks had said it did. I don't know what the auto updater is? After install finished I launched P3D4 and it started showing scenery.cfg errors that ANY scenery layer was not installed.

I shut the sim down immediately. Went to the scenery.cfg and every entry was corrupted with odd symbols at the end of each line with were causing the sim to fail to install.

I went though the scenery cfg every line, edited out the weird symbols and it all works like before install. I deleted everything that was entered into the sim by FSDreamTeam and posted on their forum. I'll check to see if there is an xml. But there were two entries placed in MS>FSx>scenery Addon which was completely wrong.

Now here I sit wondering and waiting.

FOLLOWUP...I have an FS DreamTeam folder with the airports in that and I have objects under SimObjects>Misc which is the normal install.

Oh for crying out loud.

Why can't those folks at FSDreamTeam just provide a simple system. And explain to folks in a clear post what to do.

I found the Addon Manager, downloaded it. Its doing all sorts of stuff....which I don't know what.

But I suspect this will help me add their scenery to my sim. How difficult would it have been to answer my post and say go here, get the addon manager, install it, launch the sim blah blah. Why make it so complicated.

I am wondering why all the Orbx airports are showing as updated. If you go to the website and try and purchase or update them they are still showing V3. The airports are only updated for anyone who is doing the Beta testing for them and it will only update the airports that you actually have against your account.

Because your list is showing as updated this is confusing for anyone that wants to purchase the airport. I think your list needs to show that they are only available to the beta testers.

Kiwi: Yes I see that the website still have not been updated to reflect that they are all P3Dv4.  The beta thing has been completed, they are all ready for download if I am not mistaken. If you launch Central V3 it gives you the choice of which simulator to check and for P3DV4 you will find all airports listed greyed out with buy cart unless you already have bought a license for them in which case they will say "not installed" unless of course you have installed them.

I signed up for the beta testing thing but I was sure I saw they are available for everyone now; but perhaps I'm wrong.
