Where are the Beta Testors?

Recommended Posts

It seems a bit odd to me that so little information is being released on V4. Usually the Beta Testors have a good bit of information for us at this point of a release. Even general questions like what do I need for a rebuild are being ignored. I wonder if they are still under some form or part of the NDA. So far we have only seen some pretty scenery and we know that the future will bring "lots of new things" but asiide from that, no hard facts to go by. Maybe I am over thinking it here, but anyone else kind of scratching their head? Maybe our own Rob A. could comment or any of the Beta Testers would be great.

I guess NDA was lifted the day they announced it. Last night Matt Davis was streaming V4.

Maybe they don't have much to share right now.

And possibly they are waiting till others have the product in hand and have specific questions.

Just a few more days and I believe you'll see lots of Q&A!

Perhaps Rob is preparing an AVSIM Prepar3d4 guide.. which would certainly be very welcome.

Kind regards, Michael

Uh... lesse... I tested this on the same system I tested FSX, ESP, Prepar3D v1, v2, v3 on... and through all that time the only thing that changed was I purchased a new video card when the 1070 came out.  So... that's what you need...

My specs:

Intel Core i7 6800K Broadwell-E/EP @ 3.4ghz

ASUSTek Sabertooth X99 motherboard

16GB DDR4 DRAM @1333mhz

Gigabyte nVidia GeForce GTX 1070

Meh...I think my 950/4gb gpu will suffice along with my 4670k and 16gb ram.

As long as you don't crank up the visuals... sure.

Thanks ED. Very helpful. I could not figure out why so many folks were talking about all new computers. I think I can throw  another 8 Gb under the hood of my 3770K running at 4.5 and my 980TI with 6 Gb will work fine to get this show started. I guess I will give that money back to the wife so she can make the house payment.:biggrin:

I've been wondering that too, but have come to the conclusion that many beta testers are commercial members who have shown some stuff, but are now busy making our addons compatible with P3D V4. I am really curious to see how the sim performs when loaded with high-end aircraft, scenery, weather etc.

Will a 980 Ti be "ok"?  Sure.  Unless you want to play with the new texture exponent setting in the config file for increased scenery texture resolution at larger LOD radii.

I probably won't...

Yeah, I guess we will know soon enough.  I am hoping to get another year out of my card

Recommended:  8Gb ++ on Graphics Card. Why? Well, because the textures capability has been significantly improved. Sounds good to me. That's what we asked for.. that's what they're giving us.  

BrB .... heading to Micro Center  for a new Card.  (don't touch that remote)
