• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

P3D v4 Error Message when collecting airports

I have been trying to collect airports from outside P3D. Selecting collect airport data via the airports sub menu. However as soon I select Addon airports and PD3v4 I get the following error message:
Could not find a part of the path "C:\ Lockheed Martin\Prepar3DV4\Addon Scenery", but there is no addon scenery in V4. I store all of my addon scenery on a separate drive and I need to be able to select that drive.. This error message appears as soon as I select and tick the box P3Dv4, I do not even get the chance to select either Scenery Library or Directory Tree.

David, that folder is added by default by P3D. AIFP shouldn't stop if it can't find that folder, but I'm not in a position to do anything abut it for a while.

Try re-instating that folder if you have deleted it. If AIFP doesn't find any addons in it, the search should continue.


Many thanks for your prompt reply

As far as I'm aware there is no Addon scenery folder in P3 V4 created by default. However creating a dummy folder works.

This can certainly wait until you are back from your travels

David, I've just posted Development Release 3.2.10(b) (http://stuff4fs.com) which addresses your issue, i.e., reporting PV4 Addon Scenery folder missing and, as well, expanding the search for addon airports in PV3/4 to include all valid locations, e.g., add-on/xml files.

Please verify.
