A new version 1.6.15 is available from the download page

 

This version addresses a few issues concerning the new 'add-on package system' of Prepar3D v4 (and v3).

 

Add-on Packages are the new and recommended way of distributing add-ons (like 'scenery') in P3Dv4 (and v3). As usual this version is also compatible for use with FSX and its derivatives.

Hi Reinhard,

 

how do you try to download it? Are you using the direct links on the download page, or do you copy/paste the link into the address bar of your browser? Which browser do you use?

Could you give it a try with another browser? You are the very first who is complaining about broken links.

Hey, the latest version of EFB is still missing out addon scenery. I thought I'd try to clarify where it might be going wrong:

 

Prepar3D stores the location of registered add-on.xml files within the following two files:

1. \\ProgramData%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\add-ons.cfg

2. \\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\add-ons.cfg

 

Furthermore within the add-on.xml files there can be multiple sceneries. For example, I have an add-on.xml for all Aerosoft airports, this contains entries for each airport, with the topmost entry being the 'lowest' in typical scenery order:

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<SimBase.Document Type="AddOnXml" version="4,0" id="add-on">
  <AddOn.Name>Aerosoft Scenery</AddOn.Name>
  <AddOn.Description>Aerosoft Airports</AddOn.Description>          
  <AddOn.Component>
    <Category>Scenery</Category>
    <Path>F:\LM Prepar3D Addons\Ecosystem\aerosoft\SIMWINGS_LIB</Path>
    <Name>SimWings Library (Aerosoft)</Name>
  </AddOn.Component>  
  <AddOn.Component>
    <Category>Scenery</Category>
    <Path>F:\LM Prepar3D Addons\Ecosystem\Aerosoft\Mega Airport Frankfurt 2.0 P3D V4</Path>
    <Name>Frankfurt - EDDF</Name>
  </AddOn.Component>        
  <AddOn.Component>
    <Category>Scenery</Category>
    <Path>F:\LM Prepar3D Addons\Ecosystem\Aerosoft\Mega Airport London Heathrow</Path>
    <Name>London Heathrow - EGLL</Name>
  </AddOn.Component>       
  <AddOn.Component>
    <Category>Scenery</Category>
    <Path>F:\LM Prepar3D Addons\Ecosystem\Aerosoft\Mega Airport Zuerich V4</Path>
    <Name>Zurich - LSZH</Name>
  </AddOn.Component>     
</SimBase.Document>

 

Right now the latest version is not recognising that there can be more that one entry inside the add-on.xml file. Therefore it only recognises the "SIMWINGS Library" entry. Please have a look at this on your next update.

Thank you very much for your explanations. I  wasn't aware of multiple scenery references in one single file. I will fix it with next update.
