Lockheed Martin Prepar3D & FSX:Steam
For our customers who use Prepar3D and FSX:Steam Edition instead of or
alongside Microsoft Flight Simulator
X, we're pleased to inform you that MegaSceneryEarth is fully compatible
with Prepar3D V1.XX, V2.XX, and V3.XX releases and FSX:Steam Edition.
Prepar3D is basically the same simulator engine as FSX and
FSX: Steam Edition is the identical engine as FSX and
as result MegaSceneryEarth is fully supported.
If the installation for your scenery does not have options
for FSX, P3D V1, P3D V2 and P3D V3 you will need to run one of these
updaters after you have already installed into FSX if you want to install
into P3D V1, V2 or V3.
All 4X scenery purchased after 10 January 2016 have complete
P3D V1, V2, V3, FSX & FSX:Steam Edition installers.
The compatibility in each title will show which simulators
it will install into. If you want to install into P3D and it is not
mentioned in the product information page, then use on of these updaters
below after you have already installed onto your hard drive.
It is a big task to update all previous versions. We are
in the process of doing so and it should be completed by 31 March 2016.
If you have MegaSceneryEarth scenery that you have already
purchased and installed into FSX then you will simply need to download and
run the respective updaters below which will let you
enable your current FSX installation into Prepar3D V1, V2 or V3 or FSX:Steam Edition without adding any more
scenery files to your hard drive. All it does it add each particular
scenery area you have installed into your Prepar3D or FSX:SE scenery library. So you
will only ever have one set of BGL scenery files and the scenery.cfg of
each simulator has the directory pointers that know where to load the
To use these updates....
1. Simply click on the updaters in the table below that
you wish to run one at a time. These are small files at just 1.8 Mb.
2. Select the option to RUN the updater or SAVE it to your
hard drive to run from your local hard drive.
3. The important step in the second screen is to know
where your MegaSceneryEarth scenery is installed. For example for Alabama
it might be
D:\MegaScenery\Alabama - or
it might be something else. If you don't point to the correct folder no
changes will be made to your simulators so no errors will be introduced.
4. At the final screen of the updater a dialog box will
appear that has identified which of the 3 simulators you have installed on
your system - FSX, P3D V1, P3D V2 or P3D V3. (NOTE: FSX includes FSX Microsoft
Edition and FSX Steam Edition and handles both simultaneously) At this point you can toggle
which simulator you would like to install into. You can select one or all
three. Please note that the checkbox functions as a toggle. If you uncheck
a box it will be removed from that particular simulator's scenery library.
5. At any time you wish to make changes to which simulator
your scenery is installed into - just revisit this page and repeat from
step one. Please note that you can also download and save these files to
your hard drive and run them from there at any point.
Again, we expect to have all future releases and downloads
of original purchases fully installable into both FSX/FSX:SE and P3D. You will
never need to redownload your entire first purchase. The scenery is
exactly the same. It is only the installers are modified. So instead just
use these installers below. it only takes a few seconds to run each one.
