WOW i just installed and used the Matrix, what can i say, well firstly what a fantastic bit of kit and congratulation too all who worked so hard to make this, very impressed indeed. so if you put a folder in P3Dv4 and call it "hong kong" say, if it has Aircraft,Scenery,Flight plans P3Dv4 will find this and add it ? (first silly question lol).

If I understand your question yes, that is how it works in the folder structure in P3D. I learned to put my add-ons external to the main LM-P3D folder, and used the xml to point to the add-on. It was different from what I was used to in the past. I also worried about the updates, having just jumped from 4.2 to 4.4. Outside of MAIW, I've been trying to get some flyable FSX add-ons to work in P3D.

No fix is needed if the FSX models are used Ray. Just ensure you flip the alpha with the main texture if you are working with new repaints.

It is in the paint kit Ray, but I've attached it for convenience.
