Prepar3D V5 Speculation Thread

Recommended Posts

OK I wanted to get the ball rolling on this since it is clear that there is a lot of dissatisfaction with the yet to be released V4. I am guessing the we are probably looking at around the 2 quarter of 2019 so it definitely not to early to start the discussion. It will like be on a Tuesday since as far as I can remember Major point releases of P3D have always been on Tuesday. IF someone can get a hold of it Pete Dawson's Vacation Itinerary for 2019 with should be able to narrow it down to perhaps 2 or 3 possible Tuesday's in 2019.

Let me start by saying it better be DX12 or else I will not be making the switch. I'll be sticking with V4 which I haven't tried yet. And the Third party developers better be providing free upgrades to there addon's otherwise ill come on hear and badmouth them and swear ill never buy another one of their addons again.

I'm not sure if this has ever been asked before but will V5 be a free upgrade from V4 like the point releases are?

Anyone else got any opinions on this important matter?

Considering visually v4 looks the same as v2.1 I am guessing that v5 will look like v2.1.

 

On the plus side and hardly anyone had mentioned this, the sdk has been redesigned i think, so we may see new better add-ons not constrained by the fsx sdk

If v5 doesn't have rain on the windshield - and also rain seeping through the bad seals on the windshield, that you've got to mop up with high-rez virtual paper towels - I'm out.

Time-Travel post from 05/24/2019: With XP12 and its simulation of individual photons for quantum physics based rendering (qpbr) on the horizon, the recently announced "Dovetail Games Flight Sim World meets Train Sim World for Ultimate Sim World" (short: DTGFSWMTSWFUSW) providing cross-vehicle support, and Aerofly launching its own satellite for streaming orthos to your pc 'on the fly', P3Dv5 surely has to deliver. And some people will of course stick with FSX for the time being, because Aerosofts CRJ is about to be released.

My opinion is that this is a nonsense thread. To firstly be drawing conclusions:

Just looked into my magic ball :

v6 ( 2021 ) will be 128 bit as all those addon airports with 16192 x 16192 textures remain causing GPU overloads.

A nice new feature are the hologram FO and air hostesses ....

Maybe re-read the OP after resetting your sense-o-humor switch.

If you were being ironic, well-played. Fooled me.

I think it - or at least v6 - will be compatible with the Level D 757.

Just came from the future, I can confirm compatibility with the Level D 757, PMDG 787, 737 v3, MD11 v2, DC10, and Apple Spaceship.

i obviously can't go into too much detail as i'm still under a strict NDA .i can however tell you that

V5 has the capabilty to lift your desk and chair off the floor and turn it into a Full Motion simulator.another cool feature that is still in beta is that while flying in thunderstorms water is sprayed out of your monitor onto your 3D glasses .this  gives you the most realistic rain effects possible..

Too bad they don't sell a sense of humour/sarcasm add-on. You could really use it, buddy...

This is actually a great thread. It clearly demonstrates why there are so many guys sitting there and having a great time FLYING (not looking at scenery) with FS9.

Can you confirm in the magic ball that the air hostesses will serve us a beer while flying? If not then it's a deal breaker for me.
