+1 Bryan, I'll go for the 64-bit too - this is the biggest advancement in the sim world.

It's specifically vague, but it's probably all three. DTG FS, XP11 and P3d x64. In any case, anyone sticking to 32 bit sims will be left in the dust.

 

Judging by how long it took them to convert all their old 32-bit FSX addons to 32-bit P3D, 32-bit P3D 3.x will have the largest library of existing addons for the for the foreseeable future (many years). It will probably remain the "workhorse" while AFS2, XP11 and DTG FS will be something you mess around with now and then.

Maybe, but XP11 already has enough addons out there (and gobs of high quality freeware as well) to make it viable.

 

DTG's sim is going to take years to mature I'd guess, if it's even worth anything when it's released.

In fact I spent much more for P3D than i did for X-Plane 10. And X-Plane 11 just looks amazing out of the box and cost only 60 Euros.

Seems 'dome lights' are being switched on and off (and even changed as far as colors are concerned) automatically. There is no switch for it and afaik you can't do anything about it. It is one of the only things I don't like about the Cessna. Don't know if other planes have this too. It is indeed way too yellow.

I think he means this: it is a bit too early on this screenshot but later on everything gets very yellow. I also sometimes wish I could turn of that dome light.

It's not a dome light, it's the sunset glare. Infact it changes depending on the heading of the aircraft, and disappears when it's dark outside.

Probably it's overdone, or more probably it's not well tuned with the outside lighting. If done a little better, it would be a nice touch of realism:

Also, I think that due to some reason (performance?) the shadows disappear too soon at sunset, turning what could be a realistic sunset-colored cockpit in an unrealistic dome light effect. See how much better it looks (and how similar to the RL photo) if I use dataref tweaks to turn the shadows back on at sunset:

Worth nagging those at Laminar to improve this issue! :smile:

Wow! which dataref you turn on at sunset for shadows looks really better! i get sort of this reaction  "now this light makes sense"! P3d have these shadows on during this time!

I'm with Jeroen this doesnt look good wonder if there is a way to shut it off until it is addressed I hope 

 

Wonder if we can trash that effect in plane maker ?
