Prepar3D v3 - v4 Compatibility Help.

Recommended Posts

Hi There,

I understand that my post's title is pretty vague and the only reason for this is due to lack of a better name for the title. :)

My question (That I'm sure has been clarified multiple times by fellow forum members and RSR/Kyle Rodgers) is as follows:

I want to repurchase the 777 (Base and extended Package) for Prepar3D.  But, I want to install it into version 3 right now, however, I plan on making the switch to Version 4 once ORBX make aussie airports compatible and MJC and FSL make their products compatible. I can do this without having to get different versions, right? I am sure I can do this without any issue (Or having to pay a third time :dry:) but I want to be 1000% sure before investing a lot of Aussie dollars into another aircraft for the second time.  Again I'm sure I can do this, but could I please get some quick confirmation? :happy:

Thanks.

You could also install it into version 3 and 4 at the same time if you have both at the same time.

Thanks. And now to prepare my wallet for the beating it’s about to take. :blink:

And to prepare for a lot of 777 flights. :biggrin:

Heathrow to Perth. I dare you :)

Been there done that naturally (being my old home town and my current home town!). It was a very very long flight. I pity the pilots who have to do that RW. I just wish ORBX or another good scenery developer would do Perth, it's a fantastic airport.

That can be done with ETOPS 180?

Hahah not so much a beating :) Imagine mine after I actually purchased the P3D version of the 737NG and expension, 777-200LR and extension and 747-400 all at once once they started getting available. Was meant also to avoid a bit of the transaction fee as I'm not in the US :)

think it needed ETOPS 207 for across the Indian ocean (can't remember it was a while ago).

I would say ETOPS 180 would be fine. If you use  OMDB, VCBI, WIHH and Perth as alternates. Depends on the airline if they have agreements/preparations in real life with those airports. But in the sim, 180 is possible!

Meh...

That's nothing that impressive...  Nobody lives there anyway in Perth. :wink: (I mean that as a joke, being an east-coast guy myself)

I'll fly myself from London to Sydney... :laugh:

(In case you didn't understand that, look up my name.)

Ohhhhh...    That would really hurt!  I do not know how you could buy multiple PMDG aircraft in one go! :)

I'm lucky enough to have a good job that allow me to spare a good amount of money each month, so with a good reserve it's no big deal, and then I just spare as usual and the "hole" will be filled quite quickly.

The only thing more costly than a PMDG aircraft+expansion package is ORBX FTX+ an ORBX scenery continent. (Including all of the airports in the continent...) :wink:

The thought of that alone makes me ill.

Getting OT here but sorry I have to add that anyone that has purchased AVGAS lately recognizes that while this hobby is more expensive than whittling it is far cheaper than flying, boating, golfing, skydiving, or just about anything else I can think of.  Well, maybe not more than fishing if you don't own a boat.
