active P3D v5 - Scenery Library - Add-on.cfg

There seems to be problems with the installation of Orbx products if I previoulsy used the Program Data LM add-on.cfg method to add various airports to the scnery libary.

 

Let me explain it in detail. I added a lot of scenery (airports) to the add-on.cfg in Program Data\Lockheed Martin\P3D v5. After that all those sceneries were displayed in the Scenery Library ontop and greyed out. Everything was working fine and the airports were displayed and the correct gates could be selected in the P3D v5 menu. Then I started to add all my Orbx sceneries via Orbx Central. After that the previously added airports were gone in the Scenery Library and "overwritten" by Orbx scenery starting with Orbx LIBRARY, Orbx airports etc. Those airports were still displayed in P3D v5 but when selecting a gate still  the list from the P3D v5 standard airports were shown.  Also it was not possible to manually add the scenery: P3D v5 claimed that the scenery is already installed.

 

So my question is why Orbx (when installing via ORBC Central) does not recognize that there are already add-on sceneries available in the library (maybe withe the priority 1-6) and always starts with priority 1 and overwrites exsiting scenery library entries. 

 

Regards,

Hello,

thanks for the advice. But in such a case (if the Orbx Central Insertions Point is still "Top of the library") those already existing entries should not be deleted / overwritten but the Orbx entries just put in front of those already existing entries. 

Second also after following your advice I selected as insertion point below "FsDreamTeam Exclude" (see screenshot attached). This was the last entry I added using the add-ons.cfg and it was priority number 6. But please see (screenshot attached) what happened after that when I tried to install Orbx-Library and some other Orbx products.

  • The Orbx Library became priority number 1 and followed by Orbx Base etc.
  • FsDreamTeam Exclude became number 4 (instead of number 6)
  • All the other previously existing entries (1-5) were changed to 6-10.

Ditto, the insertion point function only seems to work for the open LC and most Orbx airports. Other entries (some Orbx airports and regions) are all over the place. Adjusting tediously with P3D Addon organizer only seems to last for short while, then back to square one.
