Its seems as they not making any statements, news, improvements, replay in the forum... they used to be very communicative before all the AS16+ASCA. The only thing i see from them now is ad's all over the flight simming websites. 

Again, i use the product each flight but we need some real answers about the future of the product with P3DV3 as its very limited at the moment. Even an amswer such as: "we stopped allocating resources for P3DV3 beacuse V4 is out soon" Will be good.

Thats what i said till recently... but what i brought its not something  they can advise you to take couple of steps and its fixed. Apperntly there is no more where AS16 can go as far as P3DV3. I just want to be sure if thats the case.

Hmm...I don't think so.  I reverted to the previous build since I was getting bad stuttering on the latest.  I have been hoping to see a new build.  Perhaps, however, they're working on P3D 64...or more stuff for ASCA.

This is not the official HiFi forum, it is located here:

https://hifisimtech.com/forums/forum.php

Roi, contrary to your belief and statements of yesterday and today there is lots going on at HiFi.  One does not stop development and testing, it does not make business sense to do so.  There are fewer than 5 devs who have publicly made a statement about P3D v4, whomever has been granted access to it us under a strict NDA. (Non Disclosure Agreement)

I'm confused. Are you referring to this one, or the official one?

OK enough let me make it clearer. I wrote on the official HIFI website forum AND now in here Avsim AS16 forum. On both as it seems there is no response from the HIFI team regarding me concern with the way its working on P3DV3. Are we all clear now ? :biggrin:

I know you're a pretty vocal critic of a lot of devs in this community, but I think that HiFi is still there and working hard.  They respond fast and efficiently to concerns addressed by support ticket as far as I know.

As of the apparent lack of updates for some add-ons (AS16, FSL A320 to name a few) I do think it has to do with v4 development.  Knowing some devs already have access to it by their statements (Orbx) or by mistake (Aerosoft), it's reasonable to assume they would want to devote the majority of their resources to making add-ons working as soon as possible on the new platform while integrating fixes and new features, to then trickle them down to the v3 builds, rather than the opposite.  It's a perfectly fine business decision by me.  If v4 turns out to be 64-bit indeed (it seems pretty safe to assume in this case) it'll be a huge help in the cases of VAS-hungry add-ons, and it makes total sense to boost the visuals, features sets, and functionality for such a platform.

A lot of projects and current add-ons have apparently slowed down a lot lately, and to me it's a pretty clear indication of the impending release of v4.

Let's be positive Roi.  Think about the wonders devs will be able to do if you remove VAS limitations.  It's an exciting age coming.

Well ill take the first part as a compliment as i believe we should all get what we paid for. Some simmers became like a cult of believers who says amen to whatever DEV's are saying... not me (being a DEV myself).

As for the rest ill agree with you. But, thats what i would like to hear from the company, NDA or no NDA its not my business or concern what LM plans are, maybe i dont want to spend my money on V4 at all... i would just like to know if indeed for now P3DV3 development is paused or reached the limit of what it can do with V3. Thats all. 

I am positive i just want to enjoy my few hours a week got for flight simming between work and changing dippers :)  

All the best Max !

Haha, ok, sorry. I genuinley didn't know what you meant. You were referring to the lack of activity of the Hifi team generally in both forums.

 

Personally I don't visit there own forum, so I wouldn't know. I've had an issue in the past where I couldn't get it to sync with simconnect. I got it sorted out through a sending and receiving emails back and forth, so I would have to say I can't fault their customer service in my own experience. As for your current dilema, I can't answer I'm afraid.

Their support is primarily a ticket system. Without a ticket, you may or may not get a response from a beta team member or another user. 

They have never announce what they are currently working on nor plans for development and I certainly don't expect them to start now.

Anyone with a legitimate issue, I suggest you open a ticket and wait for a response.

Hello all,

We are as always very busy working on new projects.  Much of what we are working on is not something we can provide details on right now for various reasons, but official announcements on new stuff planned this year should be coming soon.

As mentioned, we typically do not discuss, market nor hype a new product or version until it is very late in development, the feature list is confirmed and the software is mature and near stable.  We feel that discussing things too early tends to cause problems including missed or misled expectations and is not fair to our users or the rest of the community.  Of course there are other complications to consider in all this including contracts and NDAs, etc.

Thanks for your patience and please stay tuned at any of our support and community sites including here, our official support forums, our facebook page or our support portal, all of which are available from hifisimtech.com .

Roi: "i believe we should all get what we paid for"

 It seems to me that you DID get what you paid for but now you want more. Is there something wrong with the program you paid for? If so, HiFi will most certainly respond

Well as far i remember full horizon to horizon cover was a feature that supposed to be in the original product. The truth is its not heappning today in P3DV3 its a confirmed limitation. So no i dont want more then what is was supposed to do.

Have you tried increasing cloud draw distance to maximum?  I just wonder what performance would be like...sim can only handle so much...

Not sure exactly what you mean.  The feature list did not include "horizon to horizon cover."

What do you mean ? they stated couple of times that finally we would have a full overcast all the way till horizon. That was one of the main reason to purchase this combo.

Can you please provide me with a link to those statements?  As I said, I do not recall "full overcast all the way till the horizon" being part of the feature sheet.

I dont have time or will to go through web pages trying to find one of the pre release statements so lets just agree that it cant provide full cloud coverage and thats it.
