PTA for P3D v4.1 - Release Schedule & New Features

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

With P3D v4.1 releasing tomorrow, naturally there will be a new version of PTA to support this.

At the same time, we're also rolling out some new features (these will be backwards compatible to version 4.0).

  • - No popcorn tweak has been completely rewritten. The old algorithm which worked in v3 doesn't render correctly in v4 resulting in grey clouds within a close proximity to your viewpoint
  • - Alternate tone map tweak has been improved - this basically stops clouds from being too bright when you have bloom set using HDR
  • - Separate lighting adjustments for aircraft externally and internally - now you can adjust the lights for the VC separately to the external model
  • - Added an adjustable parameter to reduce cloud brightness at varying stages of the 24hr day cycle (dawn/day/dusk/night)
  • - Added a new tweak which allows separate adjustment of HDR bloom during the 24hr day cycle (dawn/day/dusk/night)

This will be available over the next few days hopefully - keep your eyes peeled for when it's released.

If you have any questions, you can reply to this topic.

 

Cheers,

Matt.

Thanks Matt.

Great enhancements.  Will this come with a new UI or will that remain the same.

Just when I thought I'd finished tweaking my tweaks!

Excellent, Matt! This almost makes up for your absence on your super-entertaining youtube videos.

Not yet, it will eventually be integrated into Simstall which will give it a new UI.

Matt, this was not meant to be a negative comment. Just to express that youtube needs more videos like yours.

Great news Matt.

Will V2.52 presets look the same or do we need to adjust some settings first to get the same look in V4.1 ?

regards, Gerard

They will work, but chances are with the new features people will be updating them to utilise the new tweaks :)
