Re: 3ds Max 2020 compatibility time frame?

Well, at least there's two of use that are interested in this. Maybe we'll just have to switch to MSFS 2020. ;-)

I can't say that I own it, but Lorby's other products are top notch.

3ds Max 2020 compatibility time frame?

Is there any chance that the SDK will be updated for the new version of 3ds Max in the near future or is that something that will wait until the next major version of P3d? 3ds Max 2019 was discontinued as of May, 2019 and since it's a subscription-based product, it can't be purchased anymore. I'm ju...

Re: Speedtree color and density

I should have added that the lighter green deciduous tree textures might be passable for Spring textures, but the SpeedTrees in P3d4 have only Winter, Fall and "rest of the year" textures in various tree height categories. Thus, these bright green trees look out of place in Summer, as they do not ma...

Re: Speedtree color and density

Well, I took matters into my own hands. For personal use I darkened the 5 ST tree types with Photoshop. Since ST are copyrighted software, I assume that I can't circulate the revised textures publically. But I would be happy to provide them to LM for review. Here's how the five darkened tree types l...

Re: XtoMdl error P3d 4.5 HF1 SDK

I solved my problem. First, all my C++ redistributables were installed and up to date. Second, I opened SlimDX.dll with CFF Explorer and a number of the DirectX 9 dependencies were missing. I went to the MS DirectX download page, downloaded and installed DirectX 9 and now everything works. The files...

[RESOLVED] XtoMdl error P3d 4.5 HF1 SDK

I'm now getting an error with XtoMDL form the P3d 4.5 HF1 SDL. 10:14 PM XtoMDL Error (0): error : Could not load file or assembly 'SlimDX.dll' or one of its dependencies. The specified module could not be found. There is a version of SlimDX.dll in all of the 3dsmax plugin folders but the file date i...

Re: memory message error

I agree with what Dan has written. Microsoft recommends having a system managed pagefile and they aren't kidding, no matter what amount of RAM one has on their mobo. Once the video card runs out of VRAM (in this case 8 GB), the OS will begin to use system RAM to make up the VRAM deficit. Although th...

jpg thumbnail files for new Speedtree models?

Does anyone have a set of thumbnail jpg files for at least some of the common ST models? I've done a few myself by doing screen captures of the thumbnail in Sim Director, but that process is way too tedious.

Re: Ai aircraft lack intelligence

VOXATC also controls AI aircraft correctly on the ground. The point of my post is that LM is not likely to spend a tremendous amount of time on improving the behavior of AI aircraft. If anything, they are more likely to create smart AI aircraft that fight back in the Pro Plus addition.

Re: Ai aircraft lack intelligence

If anyone wants AI that communicate with and follow the ATC, then the only option for P3d4 at the moment is VOXATC. Pair that up with fsaerodata to update the sim's navigation database and the AIG Manager OCI (One Click Installer) and the sim will behave very close to the real world. When one looks ...

Re: APX files and fsaerodata incompatibility

Enrico, I don't think that LM staff will suggest anything that would solve your problem for the following reasons. The stock airports are found in the subfolders off of the folder: G:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\Scenery The subfolders are numbered from 000 to 1107 and each numbered sub...

Re: Something is wrong with how P3D reads my addon xml entries

Here's what I suggest. Download the freeware editor Notepad++. Notepad++ has a feature "search in files" that allows one to search for a string in all the files in an entire folder, including subfolders. One would want to search in the folder: Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons (and any other folders tha...
