Potential Prepar3d V3 Clue in FSUIPC Log 4.942 Release

Recommended Posts

Not sure when 'last I checked' is on the calendar... but, v2.5 certainly can use a great deal of VRAM, especially when you fire up HDR, shadows, etc to a large screen (greater than 1920x1080).

As Rob stated - hang in there Ed  :)

Really looking forward to V3 - hoping it fixes the VAS issues and also handles the anti-aliasing better, as currently these are the only two things I struggle with. Have tried DSR, and Nvidia inspector with 4x SGSS, DSR is okay and inspector is good until you go through cloud and the FPS plummets, so hopefully these will be improved with V3 :) 

 

Oh, also hopefully the LOD radius will be extended also, as I don't like currently how the Autogen goes so far then just stops, it's really noticeable (for me anyway) and also means you see autogen loading up as you fly. I know they did this to help with VAS, but I hope the option comes back to have LOD radius higher :)

So how many will jump and get V3 straight away and how many will wait to hear some feedback first?

I'm an early bird (running Win 10 for sonme days now) and will jump. I supposed I can leave 2.5 intact and install 3.0 in parallel to see how addons will develop. I always have the option to fly 2.5 if I want to (and, btw., I still have to face the first OOM in 2.5).

 

Kind regards, Michael

I'm not usually an early bird, but I too jumped at Windows 10 straight away, and it's been a very good experience with it - somehow switching from 7 to 10 improved my performance in P3D 2.5. I've had a few OOMs - only if I fly from A to B, then try to fly from B to C without reloading the sim.

Out of curiosity, where did the OP download FSUIPC version 4.942 from? On the website here http://www.schiratti.com/dowson.html the only version I see is 4.939

Hoping 2.5 and 3.0 can live together - 3.0 instant buy the very day it comes out and it should be great

I'll jump for sure but this time I will install the new sim alongside the old one, something I've hardly ever done before. But as soon as enough addons are made v3 compatible I will do the usual reinstall of my entire OS. I like clean systems for a new sim.

I'm going to wait a week or two for first impressions and also for the download bandwidth onslaught to die down at LM's site.

Pete Dowson often updates the FSUIPC version available for download, but the web hosting team at Schiratti doesn't update the version number being presented on the site.

 

If you download the available version, you will see it is in fact 4.943 at the moment!
