Cost to convert to Prepar3D - An important consideration

Recommended Posts

After researching the benefits of Prepar3d I decided to purchase and convert.  In the research I did do, there were discussions about how well add-ons performed etc and most indications were that the add-ons performed well but for whatever reason, in all of the reviews I read, I never caught the point that for a growing number of add-ons the publishers are making the business decision to require a complete repurchase of their product to use in Prepar3d. Here's the breakdown for the products I use the most:

 

PMDG NXG 737 - $89.99

PMDG 777 -       $134.99

A2A Cessna 182 Skylane - $49.99

Flight 1 FTN 750    $ 64.95

Real Air Turbine Duke - $0.00 (no need to repurchase for use in Prepar3d)

Prepar3D - $59.95

 

So the total cost for me to convert and retain the same capabilities as I currently have in FSX is $399.87. 

 

I really like Prepar3D but now that I am retired and on a fixed income budget this is much to rich for my blood so I will not be converting after all.  To their credit, Lockheed Martin has a 60 day refund policy and I am in the process of requesting a refund on my purchased Prepar3D.

 

I think this is a critical consideration that has been lost in many of the conversations and discussions about converting to Prepar3D so I offer it here for those considering converting.

Worth it. Perhaps start with only the essentials: One PMDG jet, another GA aircraft and one or two sceneries; then work your way up. Thats how Ive been progressing since 2014

Its rough, but its worth it. Wishing PMDG had a trade in program with a upgrade fee. I miss flying my T7. :Frustrated:

Its worth the cash. As you knkw, P3d is a much much much improved version of fsx. Its an investment.

You can't have unintentional double posts in multiple spots in the forum. This is only possible in the same subforum.
