Agree, I'm extremely thankful we have that opportunity to tag along for the ride ... if this is "beta" then a big thank you and worth every dime!

 

Cheers, Rob.

Lot's of 3rd party stuff  (open architecture, cough, cough) in that video, which is why P3d is now far and away the premier flight simulator app. I think that was Dino C's F-35. Did anyone recognize any of the other aircraft? I really didn't look that hard at the video in order to figure them out.

Well, they did give a nod to "Private Pilots" using the program in the video. 

So whether you are the market or not...I guess I am.

Couldn't agree more.

What was that black flying wing with the pusher prop? Is that somewhere in p3d?

What they don't show in the video are the blurries under the aircraft  :wink: .

 

Kidding aside, the two "new" simulators in the market are far from promising so I'll have to agree P3D is still the future, period.

I don't mind being a Beta Tester for these guys at all. In fact it would serve the community well if we took the time to write a nice letter thanking them for allowing us to come along for the ride. For all those who can not think past "War Planes" then please give a little thought to how this technology is being used to improve search and rescue, choppers that do Life Flights everyday around the world. Their contrubutions to Space Flight and Flight safety in general. Peace on earth is a noble cause although sadly it is a pipe dream. Ever since a cave man picked up a stick or rock as a weapon then our fate was sealed. As a 21 year retired service man I can asure you that no one hates war more than us. Most things in this world have good effects along with the bad. In this case, flight simming,  I choose to focus on the good and I thank LM for all they have given us. YMMV :Peace:

I like your sentiment (although I suspect it's a little tongue-in-cheek) but I am not thanking a company for allowing me to spend my money with them.  It's not entirely a one way street, while we get a fantastic still developing sim for serious use; LM get a truck load of highly motivated, experienced simmers paying to be testers.  

 

I think it's fair to say the deal works for both parties at the moment; but be under no illusion, if it serves their purpose to jettison the home users they would absolutely do that.

I respect your opinion and yes they would do the same thing that Microsoft did to us if it served their purpose.

Um, that's called business decisions. Mainly made for the good of the business.

 

A few years ago when LM first released P3D, there was a lot of nay sayers speculating on how long it would be before LM dumped us.

 

I said it then and I say it again - who cares? I jumped on board V1.4 and haven't looked back - to those who sat on the fence with 1.4 and stayed there - you have NO idea what you missed.

Indeed Prepar3d is a great platform, but hardly premier...may I remind you that it is still a 32bit platform and of course if you think about it for 1 sec, it's because of MS FSX, P3D is what it is now, take away all the gazillion ($$$$) addon's available and what do you have left. 

 

Having said that, I do like P3D even though I don't have it, tried for 30 days but it just did not meet my specifications (no blurries, VAS limit, microstutters) and besides I rather spend my $$$ on my beloved hobby (RC helis) then on a sim, that is why the "other sim" works for me.

 

...and no I'm not a troll, hopefully one day P3D will go to 64bit, may be then I will give it another try for sure.

It is coming but not sure the benefit will be worth the cost of getting all of your favorite addons back up and running - thats the big question so with that said if our current 32bit platform somehow can be optimized how many people will actually switch - for me depends on how much 32bit legacy products can be recompiled and I dont know the answer to that as I have heard both sides stating it can be done and it cant be done easily and not sure who is right

I've tried both X Plane and seen videos of DTG Flight school, and I will keep my 32 bit P3D....

Well that makes sense to me - not enough bang for the buck maybe

Completely agree. I even would go so far to believe LM has a 64 Bit version running at home but didn't release it just because of invalidating nearly all present addons. Besides, at lot of folks requiring a 64 bits P3D will be the first ones complaining about having to buy all their addons again - given they will be available at all (think of Vancouver 3+ and the like).

 

This said, it's my feeling LM will release a 64 bit version either this or at least the following year. DTFS, XP, and AeroflyFS2 are all 64 bit and require new addons anyway, thus we're entering a new situation by the end of this year -  with 32 bit addons fading away pretty soon. There are even voices suggesting not to buy any more 32 bit addons during this year.

 

Kind regards, Michael
