Default Virtual Insitruments crisis 2018

I feel like I've been conned by Avid, I just shelled out more than I ever did buying PT software, only to find that I haven't got half of my trusty plugins. Pro Tools 2018, is a shell of it's former self. Even worse is that there's no sign of Mini Grand, Boom, the B4 organ and all the other indispensable virtual instruments.
Now I have to hire them!? Having bought several versions of PT (since PT 6) for myself and for a 6th form college I taught Music Tech at, was I wrong to expect the latest version to be as well featured as previous versions?
Is anyone else a little miffed about this retrograde 'development'?http://duc.avid.com/images/smilies/frown.gif

They are still included but they come in a separate download. Check your avid account.

I'm pretty sure you haven't lost anything. You didn't specify from which previous version of PT you upgraded to 2018? Based on your the issue you seem to be having, it must have been prior to 12 (or 11) when the plugins you mention were no longer included in the PT download, but had their own separate download. Which means, you still have them, BUT, to make them work with 2018, you need to download and re-install them separately. Check your AVID account and I'm sure you will find there is a download available for the creative package which includes all those (and a bit more, too). If not, then you need to contact Avid and find out where it is.
