Thx!

I don't want to install it, really. My V4.4 installation works so well, and it would be a lot of work to do a complete install.

However, maybe just installing the client to benefit from faster loading times could be an option. But who knows what bugs will show up.

I wait.

Ditto.. always a good idea to wait for a wee bit. To make sure no major bugs and time for devs to make their stuff ready for v4.5 if need be: IE: FSUIPC, FTX Central, Weather modules.. etc..

Yep, that‘s the way I‘ll do the updates for me, too.
Waiting a few days until the most needed 3rd party addons and tools have updated to the new p3d version.

Besides, I never had problems with updating modules like client and content as separate updates. I didn‘t do a full reinstall since I‘m running v4.0 on my flightsim PC.

AA is good for me on 4.5 with the client and content.  Now all I have to do is add the statement:
always_use_avg_surface=1 to the [Contact Points] in the sim.cfg of the default AI vessels.

O.k., I have now installed v4.5 on my system....

I did only update client and content.
Procedure like recommened by Poppet on the LM forums:
- uninstall 4.4 client then install 4.5. client
- deleted shaders and p3d.cfg, then starting P3d and let the system rebuild shaders and p3d.cfg again.
- runnning orbx central v3 and let it config for P3d, then run autoconfiguration of orbx vector tool.
- uninstall 4.4 content then install 4.5 content

I also updated FSUIPC5 to v5.151, but I think this isn‘t really needed. V5.15 should work fine.

I did a first text flight in the milviz Huey from Misty‘s Place and Ketchikan.

First, it seems the issue with dissapearing objects like we observed with actual pf20 in v4.4 seems be fixed.
Objects like trees and others do now appear when load the scenery into the sim with v4.5....

I will do some more flights and will report.
LM announced they did some optimizations in VR with single pass stereo rendering. Didn‘t notice any significant so far, but who knows......

 8) Heck, I just updated to a clean install of 4.4 a couple days a go. Enough for now.
