P3D V3 WOW...go buy it guys

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

 

First of all that's i thinks that's the first time a write on the Avsim Forum...i read a lot in this forums and lots of you guys help me a lots the resolved some bug i had just by reading on this forums...

 

I play flight simulator since 2002 and 90% of the addons for the games like aircraft, scenery, utility etc....

 

Since to month ago i was an anti-P3D i just flight FSX or FSX-steam...but more i read on P3D more a found the platform intersesting...one day a decide  to buy the version 2.5...in the beginning i'm not was impress at all for my that's looks like more like FSX with more OOM and less FPS...i found some tricks in the forum that help me to improve 2.5 and a the end thats was the same thinks of FSX. When P3D 3.0 was released i was still in the 60 day refund but before i buy it a read in the forus a lot of comment on V3. I like to read guys like  Rob Ainscough because this guys give you the right time on a addons or something else and guys like Froogle sim on youtube. So this guys on the small opinion they tell about P3D V3 they say that's a worth to buy. So a refound my 2,5 and buy v3...

 

My computer is a i7 980x oc at 4.2

780 Gtx

8gb of ram

ssd samsung pro

 

i Have a average machine if a compare to some guy they buy jetlines systems

 

 

First of all i install p3d with ASN, Flytampa CYYZ, Aerosoft A319, Ftx global, dreamflight MDPP, GSX

 

P3D Maxed out exept Shadows, special effect, traffic air/ground and texture is 512x512

i had the same spec on 2.5

 

First flight i do is CYYZ-MDPP-CYUL

 

25 fps at CYYZ

60 fps in the air

30 fps at MDPP

 

with only 2.3 vas use

 

so i make the come back flight to CYUL Flytampa too with out close P3D

 

at the end at  CYUL 25 fps and still 1.3 vas to go

 

all this was impossible with 2.5 and fsx

 

So guys don't wait and go buy it

 

Sorry for my english i'm French Canadian ;)

 

Have Good Day

Welcome Philippe!

 

Your system is more than capable of running P3D very well. Coming from FSX and SE, the only things I would caution you about are:

 

1) do NOT just apply the tweaks that worked for FSX to P3D. In most cases they are already included and not needed and

 

2) Remember that generally the "normal" slider setting in P3D is equivalent to the "Dense" setting in FSX so make your settings accordingly.

 

Other than that - just enjoy and if you need help - we are here to help.

It's a solid product, but I still can't fly in it yet because of the controller assignment problem that results in my aircraft pulling severely to the right. I really wish that LM would at least state that they are working on a resolution to this problem. It is extremely annoying, and I don't consider having to purchase the registered version of FSUIPC as an option. I shouldn't have to.

Isn't it about what you want to, instead of what you have to?

Yep. Try setting the gyro slider all to the left in the meantime

Yep, P3d v3 is quite impressive. I was surprised also with putting almost all slider right with good performance.

 

Une belle évolution du simulateur que LM nous a préparé.

Bonjour Jean. Bonne samedi à vous. Im parler de vous dans le code parce que je ne veux pas qu'on me accusent de détourner le fil, im très intelligent comme ça. Si cela ne vous dérange pas une question pour vous. Vous avez créé un fantastique EZdok youtub tutoriel, je l'ai vraiment apprécié, mais je ne peux pas le trouver nulle part? Est-il encore sur youtub? Je suis maintenant couramment dans toutes les langues   :smile:

Bonjour Elaine et bon samedi à vous aussi mais qui est presque terminé!

 

Your French is good and yes you're multi-lingual! Thank you for your nice words and yes the video is still up on YouTube and if it wasn't, I'd upload for you or place it on a cloud somewhere. So here's the link:

 

EZdok Cameras and Functions - Increased access speed enhances FSX's immersion factor

 

and you may be interested in this one which pushes the EZdok envelope as an experiment:

Please don't hesitate to send me a personal message should you need help with anything regarding EZdok. I, as others have, am using this wonderful utility now in both FSX-SE and P3Dv3. I haven't succeeded yet with the World camera feature but I'm slowly working on it. For me, that feature is essential when making movies.

 

Nice to meet you too.

 

Regards,

 

JJ


Oups! I notice that the links don't appear but rather the actual video. If you want them, send me a PM with you email address and I'll forward them to you.

Hi Christopher,

 

The purchase of FSUIPC, in my view, is no different than purchasing another add-on such as cloud textures, mesh, etc., to enhance the core sim. After deactivating my joysticks in P3D, I've configured my yoke, throttle and pedals using a registered version of FSUIPC. I didn't decide to take that route to help rectify the issue you experience but to the best of my knowledge, I don't detect the issue you describe.

I didn't WANT to have to buy steve's fixer to fix orbx's constant dx10 issues with their scenery but you know what, sometimes you have to or else you're just out of luck. I am buying P3d this weekend. Am hoping that I don't have nvidia 3d surround issues with it. Can anyone comment on whether P3D works in 3d surround? I suppose if it doesn't then I can ask for a refund. Can't wait to switch to VR next year. Too many issues with nvidia surround...

I do not intend to pay more money when LM are currently in the process of fixing the controller issues. I will just have to enjoy Assetto Corsa until my aircraft leave the maintenance hangar :smile:
