PTA 1.X, 2.0-2.11 will not work with P3D v4 for sure.

Whether the compatible version would released will be clear after 30 May 2017.

Yuri,

I sure hope you release PTA for v4. I would anticipate many FSX users migrating over as well and that could provide you more donations for your excellent application. I know I would be willing to make a nice v4 donation myself as would many others.

I will certainly be making another donation for an upgraded PTA and encourage others to do so as well.  This is one of the best addons that has been created IMO!!

Captains! I sincerely thank all of you for your support and recognition! Highly appreciated! 
Actually such popularity of the project became a complete surprise. And this is all to be credited to sim community.
The past year has become a fantastic experience for me. 

Unfortunately PTA has not escaped the typical disease of many free/donationware projects: the lack of motivation.
The Order of Lenin and Certificate of Appreciation from CPSU Central Committee have already been achieved. :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:
To be honest, lately I spend more time in the alternate sim. And the further PTA development and support for P3D v4 obviously will take a considerable time.
The transfer of PTA project to monetization model is impossible due to problems far from virtual flights and computers. In such circumstances I've decided to stop.

Prepar3D v4 compatible version PTA is not planned.
Sorry for this.

Congratulations all of us with Great Release Day! Been a long road for the Prepar3D team for sure. Thanks for the hard work you guys put in this! 
I hope the future releases will also so damn good and give goose bumps at one point :smile:

Happy flights and no stutters and OOMs !!! (oops...what is this!?)

Kind regards,

Yuri

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw! :(

 

Not good Yuri... We at least  need the blue sky dispersion. What is it called?  Rayleigh scattering?\

Could we at least have that? PLEASE! :)

Well.. that was a surprise I must say. :bengong:

I hope someone can pick it up and continue where you left. If that's ok with you of course.

Good luck on your other projects! And that ...other sim. :gaul:

Guess I'll have to keep v.3 for some time. Not sure what my hard drive space thinks about that ...novelty thou. =/

can you release the code for someone else to update?

Great idea! Maybe even some sort of open source project?

That's too bad. Dang...hopefully someone else will come along with a program that simulates what PTA in V3 for v4.

I'm now father of two kids, one is 10 day old baby boy, so family first here. :)
I will either stay in v3, or try to create some kind of tool like original Realism Shader Pack for v3.2, but it will take time, and I'm not sure how long it will take due to above reasons.
Also I must run Immersive Audio, develop new soundpacks, and try to grab some free time for flying. It will gonna be tough certainly.

Bummer. As exciting as the news is re P3Dv4, flying without PTA means we might as well be using P3Dv4 in monochrome...

Thank you :) 
It never was that important tbh, that's why I didn't flew a proper full loaded airliner flight for over a year.

Hi Yuri. 

Its very sad to hear that PTA will not be upgraded. Its a reason for me to maintain my v3, because with PTA really it is another sim. 

Could you please give us any clue in order to modify any file to have the Rayleigh effect? With that I can be happy. do you think are there many differences between v3 and v4?

Please! We will donate the necesary money to keep this awesome addon! :P

 

Thanks Yuri!!!!

Congrats on the little ones, Predrag! I somehow missed that post earlier...

FWIW, I've just compared the shader files that PTA affects and the post process ones (FXAAResolve.hlsh, HDR.hlsl, etc.) are unchanged between P3Dv3 and v4. GPUTerrain.fx and GPUTerrain.fxh are mostly similar but the rest (e.g. Cloud, FuncLibrary, General, and Shadow) do appear to have changed moderately. Now, with regard to all of the files, are the changes substantive or not? That's beyond my pay-grade. I wonder if the mild changes in, say, GPUTerrain, would require a bunch of rework insofar as PTA concerned whereas the numerous changes in Cloud or Shadow wouldn't. Quantity versus quality sorta thing, I suppose...

Yuri, sorry to say but you killed most od my P3D v4 enthusiasm... P3D without PTA it's a different sim, I will risk a statement; worst.

Very unpleasant surprise. I want to belive that PTA will be continued....

Very sad. I was excited for the release of v4, but with no PTA, v4 won't be nearly as good.

Would you consider open sourcing it so someone else can have a go at adapting it to v4?
