That sounds promising. Small but deliberate changes to make the sim experience better in different aspects.

Cracking release, even on my modest rig, never know the sim to be so smooth, just awaiting ASN and Orbx now to update!

Is it possible to get links back to our older versions under our account? I like to keep backup's of all versions and lost my 2.4 backup.

Is there not going to be a patch to upgrade to 2.5 ?

uninstalling all add ons and scenery is not something trivial.

Thanks for the update. I am bit confused.

1.) I have to uninstall 2.4
2.) Uninstall all of my scenery and aircraft.
3.) Delete four folders
4.) Reinstall 2.5.
5.) Add all add on scenery and aircraft back?

Hi vavun, your terrain cfg is in C\programdata\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3d v2 ,copy the terrain cfg to desktop as a backup then to your main prepar3d folder i'e where it's installed to, then run your orbx installers, when finished simply cut the terrain cfg from the main folder and paste back into C\programdata\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3d v2

I have a problem with my library object shadows, Autogen has shadows but my library objects dont, tried complete new install and have only added my scenery using the scenery library, there also appears to be very slight transparency flickering. These are objects that were complied from the x file using the FSX x to mdl tool, I will convert to p3d objects and try again
