Prepar3d v4

Recommended Posts

My greatest concern is that Prepar3d v4 will be useless at the beginning unless you mainly fly default aircrafts.

All the 3rd party aircrafts, and addons that use a *.exe or *.dll will not work in V4. So it will take a long long way until the platform is on par with V3 in respect of 3rd party addons. And depending on the developer, some addons will never be updated to V4.

One can only hope that since this will be a rather significant release (closer to revolution than evolution) in the long history of the MSFS/LM line of releases, that many will want to jump on board.  Its the dawn of an era people have been shouting about for 10 years on this particular platform.

Agree that it'll probably be a slowish start - but I am definitely looking forward to the flood of potential great content once this train pulls out of the station.

That's the price for progress. I will get it on day one despite and follow its progress for sure. ORBX already said they will get their sceneries Prepar3d4 fit without any extra charge and quickly. That's 120 sceneries, more than I have time to fly in.

Complex planes might take longer, but I can't imagine PMDG, A2A, and friends not working behind the scenes already on this.

Kind regards,Michael

I wouldnt be too worried about this, most major devs seem to be involved in the beta and any new addon will be developed with future 64bit capability in mind going forward.

Of course, the addons from smaller devs who arent part of the beta will take a while until they get updated (if ever), but i'm pretty certain that the big players will be prepar3d (pun intended) when v4 hits the skies (Orbx, HiFi, Aerosoft, PMDG, FSLabs, etc).

Its even possible that LM will slightly delay the release if any of the major devs are struggling. As already mentioned by someone else, they arent a game company per se. They dont need to release before a certain deadline just because its the "best time for the market" or in order to get sales numbers into a quarterly finance report.

I'm still amazed that a few high quality  developers like A2A and VRS  are not formal partners with LM. I wonder if there is some overhead (legal and/or financial) associated  with a formal arrangement?

LOL Some will love it and some will hate it. Those still living in the basement of Mommy's house will complain for months that it cost to much. The old FS9 guys will remind us of the good old days when all add ons were free and the beat goes on. Then we have the group who complain that it won't run on their Walmart I3 special purchase from dell. :wacko:

 

That's a sarcastic and mean comment. After 13 years at Avsim, I've had enough. Every time I come here now there's something like this. I'm out for good.

Unfortunately Jim, it is the way of things nowadays here at AVSIM.  Someone will always get sarcastic and mean to prove their point, without regard to the possible reactions that may follow.  I sometimes believe people post these types of responses to get a rise out of the members, only to inject needless drama in a futile attempt to incite negative reaction.

On a more objective note though, the member base appears to be hungry for the elusive version 4 of P3D, so much so that one person's "fake leak" caused quite the stir in the community (which I didn't consider humorous or appropriate).  Playing off of members hopes like that, doesn't instill confidence or trust in the poster, and begins to create a negative air about the community.  This thread's subject usually pops up occasionally, just as discussions about new aircraft from a particular developer...I look at it as "slow news day", with members just looking for something to discuss, or as I mentioned earlier, something to post to get the community upset.

As for your decision to leave, that's up to you.  There are plenty of other threads and forums here, to which you could engage in, so don't let one person's disregard for politeness and consideration, be a catalyst for your exit.
