• 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.

Which version(s) of P3D are you using ADE with?

I am considering removing support for earlier versions of P3D. However first I would like to know which version(s) you are using ADE for? If it is more than one version (why I am not sure) then please identify the primary version. A one line reply to this post would be perfect

Thanks :)

I have P3Dv3 naked. I develop targeting this system and am able to relatively quickly start the sim and see the changes. The other important reason for P3Dv3 is the ability to use Instant Scenery.

I have P3Dv4 loaded with OrbX and AI and consider it my main sim. Start time is pretty longish. So after every major step in development I compile for P3Dv4 to see the result there.

From mobile hence short
I am using only P3D V4.5 plus HF2.

However, I am still running ADE 1.71.6177 on XP as my primary compiler.

I mainly use the FSX and P3Dv4 options, but I do use the P3Dv3 option in order to compile P3Dv2 native files for use in V2 and V3. This way I'm not always needing to swap the directories in the settings.
P3D V1.4, P3D V2.5, P3D V3.4, P3D V4.5 but I can install the last Version of ADE, which supported the mentioned Version, on another Computer. Thanks for your great efforts!

Thanks to all who replied. Support for P3D v1.4 is removed for the next update. Support continues for FS9, FSX, FSX:SE, P3D v2, P3D v3 and P3D v4
Thanks for helping
The problem that I encountered with the stock files is not an ADE problem, it is an FSaerodata problem where all the taxiways and markings are displaced of 3 to 4 meters from their position in airports.
Why do the physical places of the airports change their place. The magnetic declination has nothing to do with a map position, or something escapes me ....
I have just changed my computer for a new one, and reinstalling everything without FSaerodata has solved all the positioning problems.
ADE is a fantastic tool since a lot of years now ...
