Hi
Re P3Dv 4.4
I noticed that Bert Pieke had advised Client only install over on an AVSIM forum re RTMM Addons to a poster.
I have a lot of RTMM Addons!
I only usually do the Client update for safety reasons and often wonder what I am missing with not installing P3D Content and Scenery update

The prepar3D site has a full list of changes for client, content and scenery for each release or version: For 4.4 see release page: https://www.prepar3d.com/news/2018/11/114948/


As per previous postings there is a method:

In 4.4:

If you update the Client to 4.4: no issue. (uninstall 4.3 client, install 4.4 client).

If you update the content to 4.4: Content update: The Beechcraft airplanes from 4.3 are not replaced in 4.4 (but if you want to keep them just take backup copy so you can put them back in after you have done the 4.4 content update. (uninstall 4.3 content, install 4.4 content). No other issues.

The only bigger issues is if/when you do the scenery update.

Thanks for that
I have a  lot of Addons including RTMM which I would not want to go through installing again
Will stick to Client and Content
Not in a rush to update because WX Radar still to get updated to P3D v4.4
Every other developer seems to have made P3Dv4.4 fixes available
Never updated Scenery since original install of P3Dv4
Does anybody see obvious improvements with Scenery updates?
Scenery is a big part of my flying so would go through the serious work of a large reinstall for major benefits
BBBQ Steve -what are your thoughts?
Will have to do it when P3Dv5 comes along!

As I previously stated in my first post, I followed the Poppet instructions to the letter (as I had previously done for all the other updates, and have had zero items not still there when finished.) The keys are to back up the Beech Barron 58 and King Air 350 if you want them in v4.4, and do not do the complete uninstall, reinstall. be sure the client, content and scenery are manual and individual.

From what I gather from reading across boards is that only software that replaces textures in your sim go away, thus I uninstall and reinstall ORBX Global, Vector and the library. I also have airports HD, REX Soft Clouds, Active Sky 4 which I reinstall. If you have others that you know replaces textures in the base, reinstall them, but a I did not have to do anything else with my scenery. Because it is too lengthy I will only mention publishers of my other software. Oh, btw don't forget to update your NAVIGRAPH data as well as it is gone on installation.

1. Flightbeam
2. DreamTeam
3. ORBX
4. Other freeware and Misty
5. FSUIPC (although I did update to latest just to be up to date)
6 Virtualcol
7. Milviz
8. Coronado
9. Alabeo
10. I'm sure I left someone out, but it works.

Thanks for asking for my opinion and good luck with your update!

I forgot to answer your base question. Here is the benefit of installing the scenery portion of the the update. If it isn't important to you then don't update your scenery. I like the new stuff myself.

"Prepar3D Scenery
Fixes and Improvements
Fixed trench running through large areas in Iran.
Added several representative military jets to AI traffic. These require military cargo/combat parking spaces to appear.
Fix for specular value of bare desert that caused background globe to be brighter than generated textures.
Golf courses can be layered on top of airport backgrounds.
Added several new scenery objects including warehouses, wooden pallets, wooden shipping crates, and military tents."

I have a question on the Beech reinstall.  I know you add the baron and kingair folders from the airplanes folder back.  I have searched the gauges folder and have noted the "Beech-Baron CAB" and 7 king air files.  I have looked through effects and don't find any items.  Is there anything I have missed?  If you can let me know I would appreciate it.

Thank you very much for the text file  :)
It seems that the Carenado A36 BONANZA P3D is also removed with the v4.4 version, do you know what files to keep for this aircraft?

Yes I see that - Arg- The new Beechcraft restrictions from textron p3d. As for the A36 don't know off hand but will work on it - should only take a couple of mins. 

B58, King Air & A36 attached - they all use the exact same Effects+Textures but different gauges. List attached.
