When will be release the native installers for P3D v4? Instead of installing from current and then patching it?

I prefer to wait to for standalone installers.

I reuploaded the LOWW patch, it should improve this problem.

Thanks for the quick updates. really appreciated! Well it got better but taxiways are still full of concrete. Now there are also 2 random squares with textures. and it is still crashing at night with 3d grass.

Best regards.

Will these installers eventually be V4 compatible?

Hi guys, thanks for the updates so quickly.

I've only installed YYZ and YUL so far and have found a couple of issues.
First at YYZ there seems to be this odd wall that shows up around Gate 120, but only from certain angles and from up close:
Image
If I move the view just a bit it goes away
Image

Also common to both YYZ and YUL are large areas of autogen exclusion:
At YYZ its just at the Western edge of the airport
Image
At YUL the vast majority of the Southern edge is affected
Image

Image

Also noticed I'm getting about a 50% fps reduction at YYZ from day to dusk from a wonderfully fluid 40 down to a stuttery 20, also noticed a lot of texture reloading. No changes in any settings

Anyone else seeing the same thing?

Installed as per instructions into P3D V4

I'm not able to find this object at gate 120. It looks like the piece of 3d terrain located behind there, near gate 101,103,105.

Autogen problems are weird because we recompiled all the ground in way that it does not exclude autogen (which it does unpatched). This had to be done for nearly all airports and it was checked everytime because it was one of the main issues.

Regarding Montreal, try starting again, there maybe some old files lingering.

Uninstall it, make sure all the montreal bgl files are gone. Check the default scenery loads.

Now install again from your original exe.
Install the patch & check it asks to overwrite the original files.

I don't own Athens but decided to download all the updates for when I purchase the rest of the scenery. There's a file in the archive named "Navlights_subterminal.MDL" - was this mistakenly not compiled to a BGL file or is there a reason it was left as a non-usable MDL file?

Thanks, thats a mistake. Its not a vital file but I'll get the patch updated later.
EDIT: Fixed now. Just download again. Discard the MDL.
