Coming May 30th at 2pm EST and indeed 64-bit, lovely. Then the question is what minimum set of add-ons will make me move

Lockheed Martin is proud to announce that the next generation of simulation and training will start on May 30, 2017 with the public release of Prepar3D v4. The release culminates over eight years of Lockheed Martin development and welcomes major enhancements and new capabilities.

Lockheed Martin’s Prepar3D v4 – available May 30, 2017

Prepar3D v4 completely changes the simulation landscape with a comprehensive baseline update to a 64-bit architecture. Higher resolution visuals, more objects, increased data precision, larger scenarios, and improved performance are now all possible at levels never seen before in the product’s history. The sky’s not the limit!

Additionally, the release brings dynamic lighting, rain/snow particles, global 3D trees, a fully reworked software development kit (SDK), new default vehicles, and countless improvements.

More details will be released over the next week with Prepar3D v4 being directly available from Prepar3D.com on May 30, 2017 at 2:00pm EST.

 

Regards,
Scott

Folks,

Forgive the question if it's been answered elsewhere, but in terms of hardware, does 64 bit now make quad core and beyond a better choice for SIM hardware than a 6700K? Also, what amount of RAM is now suggested?

Time to free some space on my disk, or maybe get that 512GB M. 2 drive I've been eyeing for a while.

Well we know Orbx is fully on board. Once PMDG updates the guages and such for my NGX I will happily skip on over. That will carry me until Majestic, Aerosoft, Captainsim and Blackbox update their products so I can fly them.

Still unclear whether it's DX12 or still DX11

since it's working under windows 7 & 8.1, it should still be DX 11.

Not necessary, W7 owners just won't get the benefits of W10/DX12

Does it talk SimDIS (or just DIS)?  Can I use my own worldwide database (we have a very expensive, very detailed one)?

The big developers have been working on it for a while and hinting at it.
