Waiting for that as well. I have the King Air 350i from them and unflyable in v4 :dry:

Just as a heads up: They definately need updating and can't be simply installed using the old installers. I tried it with the Piper Saratoga and the Diamond Katana and in both you end up with a see through cabin. Gauges work, but the vc itself is invisble.

Yeah they using some Gauges like almost every other payware model. No custom Gauge works anymore, so panels and aircrafts need to be updated. Most of the free panels tho using stock FSX/P3D gauges which LM delivered in 64 bits.

The question stays unanswered tho, while they didnt change Textures, Sound, Models so basicly what costs 99 % of fps and RAM / VRAM and CPU, but changes the very small and low fps cost Gauges to 64 bit? Sense of that? Probably since 64 bit coding is way more complicated then 32 bit you will never see good custom panels again I assume. So the payware aircraft lobby gets bigger?

Who knows but it tastes bad...

I'm honestly not holding my breath.  A good portion of their catalog wasn't officially updated for P3D3.

True and their Carenado King Air 350i was badly coded. Tremendous fps loss especially in virtual cockpit. Im actually happy that its not working anymore. Im so happy I found a brilliant looking Cessna Cituation X FREEWARE :)  This im going to use for GA / corperate flying now :)

Is that the FSND version?  I may have to give it a go.

Some posted that the cessna 152 (or might have been 172) worked, remember reading that on D1 post launch. I read elsewhere that 'mid to late' carenados dont work, inferring that early models may.

I'm intrigued, so I'm going to test an old Carenado or two, then I'll let y'all know if that works.

I'll be looking forward to that report! I love the 152 and 172.

From the Carenado team:


"Official Carenado Statement about the recently released Prepar3D version 4
June 9th, 2017

With the recently released version 4 of P3D, all our aircraft have been grounded. All of them were developed for 32-bit, and don´t work with the new 64-bit platform, causing internal logic incompatibilities (no problem with the model and textures).

The solution is not too complicated, but requires work. We know how to make them compatible, and we will start working on them soon.

The process will take time because we will have to update more than 80 aircraft. We hope to accomplish this task in the next months and start re-releasing a fair amount of updated aircraft each month.

For now, customers could be confident about their investment because all of the upgrades will be free of charge."

I don't know about this, carenado has a pretty good reputation of not fixing anything and just keep pushing new aircraft's out the door, I own about 30 different planes from them between x-plane and p3d. here it is June and x-plane 11 has been out almost 2 months and not a single plane has been updated. I made the decision to quit buying from carenado until I get some of my investment back for what I have spent.most planes run between 30-40 bucks and you take that times 30, a lot of you wouldn't be happy either.that's an average of about 1,000 I have spent on their products and currently own only one working plane which is the phenom 100 for x-plane 11. if it would have been x-plane 10 I would still be waiting. sad.

The PA31 XP11 version was just released, and the AC500S XP11 version was released mid May. Just FYI.

I did not expect free updates from them. That's really awesome. I mostly fly my A2A and Milviz now, but I own about 25 Ceranado/Alabeo planes, and would love to get at least 5 or 6 of them in v4. GREAT NEWS. Thanks for posting.

Unflyable? I doubt it - if it's got wings, I can fly it. 😋

All of them don't work? Sounds like Carenado needs to read the recent C337H thread. 😊

I don't think XP11 is as high on their priority list just because of the size of the customer base.  So, I'm hoping they are smart business people and will want to keep their P3D fleet (and XP11 eventually) up-to-date.  Plus, their note says that they know how to fix the P3D fleet and that it is not too complicated.  So, I'm hopeful that they will follow-through.
