P3D v4 Missing Aircraft Objects In Library

#1
I have been using ADE for 2years ,However not very in depth. I just loaded 1.75 today and in the object
library my aircraft are missing , why?? This is in my P3Dv4. In my FSX all objects are present. All buildings airport objects ect.but no aircraft. What am I missing?

Do you have the "big thumbnail pack" installed?
I'm not using v1.75 or P3D so not sure if its included in the install for v1.75

Did you import your older settings into the new installation? If you added any objects to the library object manager in your old installation then they will not be automatically transferred to the new one.

Maybe I did not state my issue clearly the stock aircraft in the file library that come with every version I have ever used are missing. They show up when I start ADE 1.75 in FSX everything is there,However in P3dv4 the planes are missing. The photos show the library list with everything but {aircraft}. In category only thing that shows is {stock}and nothing eles. Anyone have a solution. How to fix please?

What you are seeing is the bare bones default Library Object List which is the same for each P3D version and originally used in FSX. At some point in the past we enhanced the FSX one somewhat. P3D v4 was added as a version in 1.75 and just got the basic data since it had not existed in ADE before. So if you want the same in FSX and P3D v4 then:
  • Make sure ADE is not running
  • Go to the main ADE installation folder and open the folder P34
  • Find the two files adeObjectList.dat and adeObjectList_base.dat. Rename each of them change .dat to .dnu
  • Next open the FSX folder inside the ADE main installation
  • Find the two files adeObjectList.dat and adeObjectList_base.dat.
  • Copy them into the P34 Folder
  • Start ADE again in P3D v4 mode

Check the setting for the Thumbnail Folder:

Make sure it points to the folder containing them. This is the default for P3D v4:

Thank you so much for your help Sir I have made dozens and dozens of freeware airports over the years and given them freely for others pleasure and fun. Some airports like my KAI TAK and Euopean airport packages have over 10,000 downlaods and have been circulated over several simulator websites under the name Starseed. I can continue making these addons for others because of your help. Thanks again!

One quick question are there any good library model packages with other buildings ect. I have looked around with not much luck as far as good ones??

"Good" is a very subjective word; what may be good for one purpose will not be for another. What kind of buildings are you looking for? (era, size, type, etc.). And what constitutes "good quality" for you?
 
#11
The best available would be nice .Throw a couple of recommendations my way like modern terminals or new type hangars ect. I not up to speed on creating my own. Where can they be found I have not had much luck . Is it possible to copy an airport terminal from one airport to another? have not had much luck with that. Appreciate your suggestions.

not sure where you would find terminals or hangars but there are thousands to choose from in the stock airport library, to your second question,
you can use anything from any airport and use it anywhere in the world, but you will need tools to do this like Don's (gadgets) GeoLock Utility which will also extract the textures for you too, or Arno's MCX utility both very useful tools to help you
i dont use P3D so i'm taking it they will work for you

Thanks for the link TGgibson, Now that I go to apply my new library to an airport I see the aircraft thumbnail everything is nicely in place. All my objects
show up at airport , BUT the aircraft I selected not there. As you can see from the photo it places the object and shows up in the list ect.Now only a few will appear why is this ? none of the static 737's MD83's or 747 will appear. the F22 and some of the GA ramdom aircraft will C185 Pier Cub and a few others. .I have never had this much of a problem will ADE before. What can I do to resolve this??

Bear in mind that ADE does not store actual model data. It stores references to that data and when you place a library object then you are using the models from the version of FS or P3D that you are compiling for.

The list that ADE has are basically stock objects. These will be the objects found in the stock scenery folders in files with OBX in the name (and some others). You can see which stock object library ADE thinks the object is located in by looking at The Library Entry.

Most of these are going to be in the Global Scenery Folder

This is P3D v4 so I would expect them to be displayed. The object you show above is in the vehicles_aircraft.bgl file

Have you shared your ADE project file for this with us so that we can take a look?

Will it work with FS2004 library for static aircraft? I'd love to have those. Many Europeans have abandoned aircraft parked outside airport.

Where did you get download coming from filename please?
