  1. Jethro , this is a brief tut as to how to join with the OZx flight.. For next Friday OZx M9 flight . Start the Sim and place the AC at YBHI some parking spot. in the SIM set time and date as per instructions Date: 23/3/2018 Time: Take off 1515 local Save the flight as M9 . Download from the forum the M9 weather file M9.zip place it in documents\prepar3d v4 files (you would have an M9.wx file there already) Unzip the file and overwrite M9 ( now you have the posted weather) back to the SIM menu>scenario>end scenario Enter again manu>scenario>load scenario and load M9 as saved before. You have now the scenario for the session with the correct weather and Date/time. If there are additional sceneries , download them and install as per usual using your preferred method ." this can be applied for any flight. Enjoy Jorge

  9. Hi Anton , To the OZx install , I suggest you start again with OZx 3.0 pointing the installer to E\LM\AddonScenery , and continue installing all of OZx in the same folder ( Ozx install will merge everything and you will end up with the structure I pointed at before....) the same .xml will add the whole of OZx.. (once you have all OZx installed I'll give you instructions to use the other folders in there (scenery, effects , etc)) Messing up with the add-on.cfg files is dangerous , all entries there should come from having add-on.xml files in C:\Users\YOUR_ID\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons\...or from add-on packages. Remember any folder or file that is corrupted will be replaced by a default folder/file at the next P3D start. And I mean every folder or file. Jorge PS: ORBX , Ozx and other installers use the Win Registry fo find the Path to P3D , that's why they know where to put the .xml folder/file or in FSX the root FSX
  10. Hi Anton , yes the add-on.xml file is the simplest way . The other is the add-on package and involves command line commands..(more advanced). The add-on.xml file goes in the C:\Users\YOUR_ID\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons The process is as follows , P3D starts and runs a discovery phase , it looks for folders with an add-on.xml file in C:\Users\YOUR_ID\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons The add-on.xml file has in it info about the Category of the add-on (addon.Component) the path where it can be found and sometimes a name and layer. Here is an add-on.xml of my RealAir Legacy.. <SimBase.Document Type="AddOnXml" version="4,0" id="add-on"> <AddOn.Name>RealAir Legacy V2</AddOn.Name> <AddOn.Description>RealAir Legacy V2</AddOn.Description> <AddOn.Component> <Category>SimObjects</Category> <Path>SimObjects\Airplanes</Path> (the path can be implicit or absolute as you will see in the example for OZx below) </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Effects</Category> <Path>Effects</Path> </AddOn.Component> </SimBase.Document> Here an example of a scenery add-on.xml... <SimBase.Document Type="AddOnXml" version="3,3" id="add-on"> <AddOn.Name>Chodo</AddOn.Name> <AddOn.Description>Chodo South Korea</AddOn.Description> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Scenery</Category> <Path>chodo-1952</Path> <Name>chodo-1952</Name> <Layer>9962</Layer> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Effects</Category> <Path>Effects</Path> <Name>Chodo_Effects</Name> </AddOn.Component> </SimBase.Document> So if you want your OZx installed in E:\Lockheed Martin\Addon_scenery , you should install OZx as per normal and point the installer to E:\Lockheed Martin\Addon_scenery , once all installed , there will be a folder called OZx ( as it would have been in root P3D ) inside it two folders OZx_AUS and Ozx_Lib .. Now you must create the add-on.xml. create a notepad (or notepad ++ preferably) file and place this in it .. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <SimBase.Document Type="AddOnXml" version="3,3" id="add-on"> <AddOn.Name>OZx_AU</AddOn.Name> <AddOn.Description>OZX AU</AddOn.Description> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Scenery</Category> <Path>E:\Lockheed Martin\Addon_scenery\OZx\OZx_AUS</Path> <Name>OZx_AUS</Name> <Layer>9999</Layer> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Scenery</Category> <Path>E:\Lockheed Martin\Addon_scenery\OZx\OZx_LIB</Path> <Name>OZx_LIB</Name> <Layer>9998</Layer> </AddOn.Component> </SimBase.Document> Save it as add-on.xml and place it in C:\Users\YOUR_ID\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons . On starting P3D you will be asked if you want to activate OZx_AU ..of course say YES , and the scenery will be added. (as we selected LAYER=9999 it will be at the top , as it should be) Look in the P3D menu Addon Library and see.. also in Options>Add-ons you will find the entry for OZx. The same for Simobjects..(airplanes , helicopters , etc..) Let me know how you go , I wrote this on the go so may be there are mistakes , but nothing would damage the system. For an In Depth learning of the process I recommend reading the Learning Centre section on Add ons ( Prepar3d v4\Learning Center.chm SDK>AddOns ) Easy eh??... Jorge
  11. Happy Birthday Clem

  12. OZx Windsocks NEWS

  13. MARCH 10 2018 For all P3D users , here is the OZx P3D Animated Windsock installation thread , all info and updates will be posted here and dated. The process starts (if you do not already have it ) with the installation of SODE (Sim Object Display Engine) obtained from here ...https://sode.12bpilot.ch/?page_id=9# please be aware that SODE is licensed material under a Creative Commons Attribution-NoDerivatives 4.0 International License. once installed to the default location(recommended) you will have the following folder structure in your PC... C:\ProgramData\12bPilot\SODE\Simobjects The folder OZx_Windsocks should be placed here, this folder contains all the SimObjects required by the OZx windsocks released . There are white and orange windsocks , a pole and a dark platform surrounded by 15 white cones as per the regulations. This folder is here to download ., and will be updated as the models change. (OZx_Windsocks.zip ) C:\ProgramData\12bPilot\SODE\xml All the .xml files used to create Windsocks are to be placed here. they indicate the type of windsock , the pole and most important the location of the windsock. note ONLY .xml files go in here. The current availability of windsocks is in the file xml.zip available here . There are other files and folders but are not relevant to this installation and should not be changed in any way. From now on any new release of windsock will be done in this post , so keep an eye on it and review it frequently as we are creating windsocks weekly. NOTAM IMPORTANT INFO FOR ALL CURRENT USERS OF OZX WINDSOCKS You would have the current SODE structure in place , the only change you have to make before adding the OZx_Windsocks folder to C:\ProgramData\12bPilot\SODE\SimObjects is to DELETE from the folder the two old Simobject folders named OZx_WS_Or and OZx_WS_Wh, ( they have been consolidated into one). Anything you add to the C:\ProgramData\12bPilot\SODE\xml is OK and can be overwritten. This post is to be locked . Any questions or support should be via a post in the OZx Support Forum Section. Thank you and Safe Flying!! Jorge xml.zip OZx_Windsocks.zip
