P3D 3.0 Speculation & General Nonsense

Recommended Posts

Lots of people here and on ADX are saying all sorts of stuff. Talk is cheap and no one actually knows anything. And there's a particular beta tester here who reminds us that they're under NDAs but seems to keep fueling speculation (perhaps no fault of his/her own) which leads to speculation piled on top of speculation.

 

Given LM's secrecy on development, no one will really know anything until they announce or release something. Last I checked, that hasn't happened yet so everything we hear--even from beta testers--is hot air or, er, type.

So what? Have fun listening to nonsense. As David implies, if folks want to read into the tabloid journalism and editorials that many of these AVSIM threads turn into, it's merely entertainment. But far be it from me to suggest what people do in their spare time...

You mean nonsense like this ? I appreciate that flight simulation turns out of the backside of the moon into the light.

If you call this and the rumours about expected releases of flightsim software nonsense then this is your way of thinking.

I enjoy the new hype about our hobby..

The only thing known that is FACTUAL is the V3 is coming out soon. Anything else is a rumour with zero grounds. Period. End of story. No if ands or buts.

As do I. However, you conflate "hype about our hobby" with speculation.

 

I would consider "hype" to be development previews, such as those routinely published by developers themselves. Aerosoft, PMDG, ORBX, FlightBeam, etc. themselves push a lot of news about their projects directly to the community, leaving us little to speculate about. Some of it is indeed hype, to be sure, but it nonetheless creates a pretty clear picture of what to expect. That sort of news is exciting and I'd be lying if I said I don't check primary sources often for news and updates.

 

The difference here is big: the developer of the actual sim platform itself, for better or for worse, is notoriously quiet about news, updates, and what to expect in future dot releases, hotfixes, or new versions. That creates the requisite vacuum for the rumor mill to start operating and spreading misinformation from both know-nothings and folks possibly with an axe to grind (those who don't like the idea of paying for new versions, simmers that use another platform, etc.). This type of information clogs the sim-sphere and weighs it down with worthless information and misdirection that only adds to further misinformation and confusion. If you enjoy reading this sort of thing, by all means, have at it. But do not strawman me into someone that would prefer no news or developments regarding this hobby as that's patently false and intellectually dishonest.

So far I haven't seen 1 item of legit news in this dumpster fire of a thread. please close it and let Avsim put a frontpage article when there is some real info.

To be honest, the most exciting times on these forums for years has been the few weeks/months preceding a new release of a core platform. For some reason the speculation is exciting - it gives us all something to look forward to. There is no harm in it.

 

It's all about managing expectations. Expect to be excited for 2 months until release......but then expect to live with disappointment and unfulfilled expectations for two years. Remember the FSX release? The most massive letdown ever until things slowly caught up two years later. :smile:.  I'm quietly confident that V3 will not disappoint, based on no information whatsoever.

Version 3 will work only using win 10 EDGE, that's the news.

 

What ?  You don't believe me ?

 

Why ?

The right people are saying the right thing - we have something to actually look forward to, in the near future at that!

 

Sure, it will bring some negatives - incompatibilities and the like, but there is no denying LM's amazing work up to now makes v3 a tantalizing prospect for the flightsim community going forward.

v3 will be for tablet only and it's free to play if you don't mind having ads with Kate Upton asking you to be her hero popping up every 20 seconds

But hopefully subLogic will release USA Scenery East and USA Scenery West to add the rest of the airports in the US.  Is KCMI (Champaign-Urbana) one of the 5 airports?

Who could that be ... speculation will thrive with or without a dose of reality ... and I dare suggest speculation continues on long after the reality ... what is Real?  Never let speculation adjust your current reality.

 

I do think "Previews" are a good idea, but you have to realize 3rd party may also want to be a part of that preview process in a new platform version especially if they are contributing input (be it testing and/or feature requests) into the new platform.

 

 

 


FACTUAL is the V3 is coming out soon

 

Hmmm ... it is?  Who said that?

 

Follow the white rabbit ;)

 

Cheers, Rob.
