Using MT for online flying exclusively

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of buying MT6 and I'm only interested in the aircraft models since I do all my flying online on VATSIM.

What's the recommended way accomplishing this with MT6 without having MT6 change lots of other stuff in my P3DV2. 5 installation?

Read somewhere else that one way is to install MT, copy the aircraft folder and then uninstall MT. However using that approach I guess you'll be in trouble when it comes to updating aircraft models and liveries? Or are such updates released as stand alone archives not requiring you have the full product installed?

MT6 does not do anything to the installation, so if you install it as it comes  and do not add the scenery that should do it.

Sounds good and may I ask how often is the aircraft fleet in MT updated and how does the update procedure work, is it automated within some kind of GUI or are updates distributed separately outside the application?

There are typically updates every 6 months (provided there is a stable simulator platform, P3DV2 killed more than one year). Their size depends also on the number of user contributions. New paints come with new schedules, and often these require changes to the airports too.

That is different, while there is an update process foreseen in the communicator, often the changes get so large that an update has to be run manually, downloading and executing an exe file.
