What's going on with P3D

Recommended Posts

It seems to me that it's been rather quiet on the forums about upcoming updates or new versions for P3D. Just curious if Rob or anyone else knows what we can look forward to and any timeframes of what we have to look forward to in newer versions or updates.

Well, in two posts that Beau made in the LM forums, he indicated the issue discussed would be fixed in V3. At no time has he mentioned V2.6. HOWEVER - that could men that 2.6 is in final stages and no more changes too. The fact that he is posting again makes me think they are getting close to another update.

 

Has Pete Dowson scheduled any holidays?  :lol:

Rob A posted yesterday in another thread that v3 might be the subject of an announcement in the near future, near future being in weeks/months not years.... So expect something shortly on the news front.

"Well, in two posts that Beau made in the LM forums",is this guy still working for LM?,I think I read some where ( I belive airdailx ) that he had moved on,I might be wrong as it was some time ago,but I agree it would be nice if we had some idea what the final version of P3d will look like,any one with any idea what  LM are aiming for please come forward and spill the beans,surly they must have a idea of their final version? unless they will just go on for ever!

FWIW, he said there won't be a 64 bit version of P3D. Having said that, I think he's wrong regardless.

"I poppet" would like to take this opportunity to apologize for me and everybody else on this thread who has participated in pointless and nonsensical posts about about the topic in question:)

whether or not you're a "poppet", Lockheed Martin isn't going to let you you know the PreparD release dates until it's ready.

Yes...very interested to hear what improvements 3.0 will bring vs extending the life of 2.x. It's always been a little unclear to me what LM is allowed to change with their license of the simulator.

 

The way I understand it is that they will or can not change things like flight dynamics but can make it easier for developers to incorporate a more accurate flight dynamics model. They will not improve the default weather engine but will make things easier and more uniform for third party weather developers etc.,etc,

 

so it's unclear to me at least how 3.0 would be a dramatic leap above 2.x aside from graphics and 64 bit?

LM are under no restrictions on code changes other than how much compatibility they may or may not want to break ... I think you're mixing LM up with Dovetails code restrictions.

 

Yes Wes Bard left many many months ago.  However the LM team has increased in size an their pace of development has increased also.

 

JV's post is a mystery to LM and myself ... I continue to purchase Orbx products regardless as they have a talented crew -- as do many 3rd party content providers.

 

Beau Hollis has already commented publicly on items that will be addressed in v3.0 so that should be a pretty good indication there will be a v3.0.

 

When will v3.0 be available ... I'm not permitted to say obviously, but I will say it's not going to be years or a year.  What will it include ... just have to wait and see.

 

Cheers, Rob.

If i had a grasp on reality alone i would be happy with that.  

 

Anyways back business,  so V3 is coming in 7 maybe 8 months.  It seems i'm right so  :Big Grin:

I don't appreciate the comment about my topic being pointless. I appreciate Robs reply about what LM plans to address in version 3.0 and a rough estimate of its release. For those who don't have any information no need to make derogatory statements just cause you're outside the loop. Rob would you mind directing me to LMs post about version 3.0. I had been following it but have been unable to find any information lately. Thanks again for those who responded positively.
