STB Client and Data Server OFFICIAL Update V4.2.2019.12100 for Prepar3D-V4.2+

Recommended Posts


Here is the latest official update for STB V3 for Prepar3D V4, previously made available as a beta.  If you downloaded and installed the beta, you do not need to apply this update.

You can download the STB Client update from here:  bit.ly/2vTMfJN

The combined update and installer from here (only required on the Prepar3D computer when running STB Client on a separate computer).  Note this is V4.2.2919.08800, the latest available, and fully compatible with the STB client update described here.



Summary of Additional Changes since last official update (V4.2.2018.20200)

  • Added name and location of the simulator Traffic BGL file supplying each flight to the flight details dialogue.
  • Added content support for Alpha India Group (AIG) “One Click Installer”, covering all airlines and flightplans supported by OCI and the entire Winter 2018 season.
  • Added new and updated logos for major UK airports and Washington State, USA.  This is the first stage of a long term exercise to update the logo inventory.
  • Correctly round schedule times to the nearest minute instead of always rounding down.  The value can now be rounded-up, which avoids a lot of flights intended to operate on the hour which were being reported at 59 minutes past the previous hour.
  • New Content Error Reporting system to capture STB errors relating to simulator content (Scenery Library, SimObjects, Schedules and Airports).
  • Update Make Runways utilities to V4.8.7.1.  Deploy all files associated with Make Runways, not just the .exe file.
  • Added Lorbi-SI redistributables to the Make Runways package included with STB, by kind permission of the author.
  • Added dialog describing the Make Runways related redistributables with links to author webpages and read-mes.
  • Removed MakeRunways prerequisite info dialogue.  A separate Lorbi-SI install to support Make Runways is no longer mandatory.
  • Tolerate the presence of P3D "AddOn" related entries in the scenery library configuration file.
  • Fixed bug which ignored flight plans described in a schedule BGL file where the file extension (BGL) is in upper case.
  • Fixed bug that caused mismatches between materialized flights and predicted flights where the aircraft title > 32 characters. We now support titles up to 64 characters.
  • Fixed bug where calculating departed at times for departure remarks could cause an exception.  If insufficient data exists to make the calculation, it no longer happens.
  • Fixed various problems with reporting blank, null or whitespace-based paths occurring in simulator configuration files, to the content error reporting system.         
  • Fixed exception generated when a keyword=value pair occurring in a simulator configuration file contains a value which itself contains one or more equals signs.
  • Fixed bug where predicted and materialized AI flights failed to reconcile and created duplicate flights on the board for schedule repeat periods less than a day and for the 2nd or greater repeat period within a day.
  • Fix problem where STB operated aircraft would not go through departure workflow.
  • Fix incorrectly calculated next departure flight schedule time in flight details dialogue.
  • Fixed incorrect aircraft counts at airports mentioned in a user aircraft flight plan.
  • Improved used aircraft handling: Obtain user SimObjectID from simulator instead of defaulting value.
  • Added atc_type and atc_model values to Flying-W Invisible Aircraft to avoid Simulator and STB Content Errors
  • Deprecation of the majority of legacy UT2 code.
  • Added debug to catch and better explain any exceptions occurring during instantiation of the P3DFileHelper class that are directed to the Windows Event Log


As always, many thanks for your support and if you do happen to install it let me know how you get along with it.
