P3D V2 Straw Poll

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

Just a quick straw poll.......

 

How many are now using Prepar3d 2 as their sole simulator?

+1 here. I am migrating from fsx at this point.

I am 100% P3D, even with the annoying OOMs I'm getting and that will (hopefully) be resolved in the next patch.

P3D mostly at the moment. There may be a few times that I have to go back to FSX though.

Will use FSX untill the P3D V2 stutters are resolved.

Agree 100% and to add, the loss of focus FPS with undocked windows issue is resolved. Oh and crappy AA is resolved.

I see myself moving to V2 exclusively as soon as a bulk of add-ons are made V2 compatible. I do not want to use the migrator tool. So it would be 3 to 9 months from now....

Had it from day of release and I love it. Silky smooth with most FSX add-ons working well especially the photo scenery. This on an i5 2500k cpu, NVidia 6600ti GTX graphics card, 8gb ram running on Windows 7 64bit which is only a mid-range computer by current standards. This should be really spectacular when add-ons written specifically for Prepar3d are released.

I'll have it up and running on my machine in a couple weeks. It will not become my main sim until most current FSX add-ons (and new native add-ons) are officially converted and supported for the new platform. Like many have said there's nothing wrong with using both until P3d v2 is up to speed add-on wise.

I've completely abandoned FSX several times over the last couple of years.  :blush:

 

This time, I'm absolutely certain that I can make it stick.  Rough edges and all, P3Dv2 is offering almost everything I want and it's already performing better than FSX.  By the time 2.1 arrives (or 2.2, depending on how much progress is made with 2.1), I don't think I'll have a single major issue to complain about.

 

And that's the really wonderful thing...  we know those updates are actually going to happen.

No, refunded.. Went back to FSX

But. I'm extremely dedicated to supporting it. Soon as I feel its at least as stable as 1.4 was (hopefully the next version) I'll move back. My time with FSX right now is more like "one last dance" before I move on. I miss 1.4 but wanted to take the old ball and chain out on one last date

I'm solely using V2, but am thinking of running FSX alongside it again until more products are native p3dv2

100% P3D2. FSX simply can't do the things that it can on my system, particularly with photoscenery.

P3D V2 almost exclusively. Last night I fired up FSX for the first time in a couple of weeks and was amazed at how poorly it performed in comparison - not that I wasn't aware of that to begin with, but the side-by-side comparison really brought home how my FSX struggles.  I'll be happier when I can get P3D past the testing phase and go back to straight flying - that'll require a revision or two, and the availability of more addons.  But until then, I'm happier working with it as it is than I am trying to get FSX to fly.

P3D 2.0. The one and only. Looking really forward to the upcoming patch(es) though...!!!

Hardly using P3D at the moment. FSX is still my main sim and will be until developers start using the new code to its full advantage. Hope that is sooner rather than later!

100% P3D2 despite all the issues/bugs. FSX or P3D1 for that fact are hogs regarding my machine specs.
