Addon Repair

  • The aircraft repair feature now automatically creates missing aircraft reference information sheets and checklists in html format.
  • Prepar3D v3 files can be used to repair Prepar3D v4 addons. This is handy when an addon assumes you have effects, gauges, sounds, etc from the other version.

Customize

  • Added an option under the category "Addon Installation", in the section "Confirmation and Warnings". Your two choices for this option are explained below.
  • When installing a file that already exists:
  • Ask me what to do each time - if the file being installed already exists, you will be prompted for instructions. This is the default.
  • Replace existing file if older - if the file being installed is newer than the one that already exists, always overwrite it. Pick this option and you will no longer see the Confirm File Replace dialog during installation; Addit! Pro will decide what to do by comparing the date/time stamp of both files.
  • Added an option under "Addon Repair" to use Prepar3D v3 files to repair Prepar3D v4 addons.

  • The Program Information screen now accurately shows the operating system as Windows 10 (instead of 8) for Windows 10 systems.
  • Fixed a rare "Error #5: Invalid procedure call or argument" and "Error #91: Object variable or With block variable not set" bug when installing certain incomplete aircraft base packages.
  • Fixed a rare "Error #9: subscript out of range" error when loading the aircraft list.
  • The import addons at startup feature will now work properly once again.

General

  • Added support for Prepar3D v4.
  • Improved the "Select Flight Simulator Installation" window that appears when several versions of the simulator are installed and you must pick one.

  • Adjusted the large database warning message to appear when the mdb file is much closer to its maximize size.
  • Included high resolution versions of all default aircraft, panel and scenery addon images including new Prepar3D v4 addons: Lockheed Electra 10A, Milviz P-38L, Lockheed Martin F-16A, Sikorsky Black and Battlehawk variants.
