Installing/Updating sceneries

Post by baedi » Mon Mar 22, 2021 5:22 pm

First of all, i really like the FlyTampa sceneries a lot. But, i always think it's a pain in the a.., when re-installing/updating FlyTampa sceneries. Why can't there be a detailed description of how to do this for each airport ? If its a clean install is one thing, if you have older sceneries installed and want to update. Should i remove older sceneries, then install the new version ? Or, should i just run the update installer ? What should i manually delete, and so on. If all this was explained in detail, my god, how much time i would save in front of the computer sorting out things. Maybe it's me who is struggeling at most, i don't know.
A bit negative here, but hoping this could improve in the future. I have the sceneries EHAM(v1.1), TNCM(v1.9), YSSY(v1.0) and Kai Tak v2.0 that should have been updated. For Kai Tak there's probably no update. Anyway, doing the updates here, i'm really not sure how to do it correct. Thanks for helping

Normally, within the same Sim, you just run the latest installer and it will install the latest version "over" any older version you have previously installed. So there is no need to manually do anything, therefore no instructions, except the P3Dv4/5 install instructions here viewforum.php?f=1

Only if the you did something out of the ordinary, like for example copy pasting an old V1.1 "StMaarten" folder from an FSX installation into the P3Dv5 addon folder, that may require manual deletion before installing a new version.
