Missing Airports and how to update P3D scenery?

Postby dmatthieu2 » Wed Nov 29, 2017 6:56 pm

Hi. It looks like there are a few major airports missing in the flight simulator. VTBS (Bangkok/BKK) and OTHH (Hamad Intl/DOH). It's a bit disappointing because I've flown there in real life.

Is there anyway to have these installed, or even if bought from third-party, how to install it in the default scenery cache so that the simulator actually recognizes it?

The only way is to install them either from Freeware or Payware , provided they are P3D V4 compatible ... if they are the install will be automatic..I would not try anything else.

I am having the same issues. I am using the pdmg qots v.2 747-400f (default livery) and I have loaded product named "Los Angeles Aera Photoreal" scenery from blue sky scenery (the author misspelled it) product version 3, which detects or shows it can install to p3dv4 and proceeds to do so. However, when I sign in the lax airport has buildings in the center, but nothing else anywhere, as in cars (the 405) driving right by the se parking 11 (near cargolux). Its also extremely bright. I got some errors (Unable to write to directories) when I installed p3dv4 some of which I think refer to the directories where the scenery cfg files are. I am at a loss to figure out how to get p3dv4 to recognize the new airport files. I am still too busy reading all the documentation and messing with the fmc to bother with the actual taking off part right now, but would appreciate any advice on how to get the scenery into p3dv4. Thank you.

Anyone knows where I can get a VTBS for P3Dv4.2? The ones I am finding are for FS9 and FSX
