These ZIP updates get added to the latest version of each airport, current versions are listed here. More updates will become available in the following days. When extracting the ZIP files, it will ask to overwrite/replace existing files. If it does not ask to replace, that means you are extracting them in the wrong folder.

Amsterdam
http://www.flytampa.org/dwl/EHAM_P3Dv4_Patch.zip
Install Notes: Run the FlyTampa-Config-Tool and make sure to select "East" under Amsterdam Airport setup. You can change that option again after applying the Update files.

Libraries
If you notice upside down Safegates at CYYZ, YSSY or EHAM, as well as reversed waves at TNCM or YSSY, like described in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=10319
... this is a Prepar3D bug that will be fixed in a patch. If you previously applied our fix for it, the textures will become reversed again once you install the Prepar3D patch. To fix it at that point, reinstall the FTLibraries (from the downloads page).

These are V4 compatibility Updates only, they shouldn't be applied to V3 or FSX. We are only testing these for V4 compatibility at this point.

Does this mean that we need to point p3d v3 installers to p3d v4 folder to install flytampa sceneries?

Wow awesome, thanks for this.

Will you be doing TPA, MDW and BOS as well? These are some of my favorite sceneries, especially MDW as it's my home airport:-)

The old BOS doesn't work at all in P3D but there is a new version coming out later this year.

TPA & MDW are up to Martin. Montreal patch is coming soon followed by Athens.

Thanks for the info George. For what it's worth, I've been using the old BOS just fine in v3.xx with no real issues to speak of, but I'm really looking forward to the new one. Looks great!

So how do we install? Run the installer pointing to v4 directory and then apply the updates afterwards? Thanks.

Fingers crossed TPA and BUF make the cut. TPA is the company namesake after all, isn't it? :D

I have fsx:se with some flytampa add ons.
Should I reinstall and pointing the p3d v4 ? Or how we do?
Install the latest versions and then apply the zip patches?
Please advise
