STB Update V3.4.0.29 for Prepar3D V3

Recommended Posts

Here's the final version of the STB for Prepar3D V3 update, for forum follows to enjoy first before going public

The STB download is an update installaer for your current installation, while STB-DS download is the full product.  Please uninstall any previous versions of STB-DS for Prepar3D V3 before proceeding with this one.

The full list of changes since the last published update:

⦁    Exploit Prepar3D View System to offer Multiple Extended AI Views (using native P3D Cameras and Observers);
⦁    Automatically update Prepar3D.cfg with the “LoadAIVirtualCockpit” statement, as required by STB V3.4.0.12 and onwards to support the Prepar3D Camera System;
⦁    Reset the main view to the user aircraft cockpit when the AI aircraft subject to an Extended AI View is deleted;
⦁    Add a setting in the settings notebook for individually disabling the Extended Ai View Cameras and Observers;
⦁    Reintegrate the STB Shadow AI command to use one of the extended AI Views (Prepar3D AI Cameras and AI Observers), offering a more stable visual experience compared to the user aircraft cameras;
⦁    Use SimConnect ChageView() command to switch the main view to the legacy View AI Camera instead of a simulator event;
⦁    Improve the messages displayed when connect to Prepar3D and STB-DS;
⦁    Distinguish the “Connect” button colours:
       ⦁   Orange means “Connecting to simulator”;
       ⦁   Yellow means “Connecting to STB Services/STB-DS”, or “Simulator is not running a flight”;
⦁    Provide an additional statistics window displaying the number of AI aircraft under simulation.
⦁    Remove workaround for Prepar3D v3.2 Zulu local day bug for Prepar3D V3.3 and later;
⦁    Report distance between airbourne AI (>100ft) and the user aircraft;
⦁    Fixed bug that resulted in a delay in the nearest airport being shown when automatically connecting to the simulator at STB startup and automatically select closest airport is active;
⦁    Fix problems deploying the STB Simulator Plugin experienced by certain users;
⦁    Prepar3D.cfg backups are now created in the STB backups folder in the Prepar3D application data folder;
⦁    Catch SimConnect exceptions occurring after the simulator has declared the interface closed;
⦁    Update sqlite to System.Data.SQLite 1.0.102.0;
⦁    During the remote client wizard experience, open a local PDF with instructions rather than a web page.
⦁    Use a better method for determining the location of the application data folder;
⦁    Update MakeRwys to 4.6.9.9;

As always I'd be glad to hear of any feedback. 

Thanks

Simon

I think we can declare this a tremendous update. The view options for P3D are fantastic. No wonder I love everything related to this software. Congratulations. :)

Does it work with the just released hotfix for P3d 3.4?

The hotfix seems like a minor one, nothing of any great interest personally except

" Correcting issue with SimConnect global exceptions. Respecting client IDs for SimConnect exceptions. "

However I don't think that's having an adverse affect of STB in any event.  It will get loaded eventually, but isn't a priority.

Thanks! And Kudos to LM for continuing to develop facilities in general and make the accessible through simconnect.
