BREAKING NEWS!!! Q400 and Prepar3D v4 Update.

Recommended Posts

Attention ALL Majestic Software Q400 Captains, First Officers, and Virtual Airlines:

The wait has been a laborious one for all crew members that were grounded for the past 5 months awaiting their Q400s to become air-worthy for use with Prepar3D v4.  We are pleased to announce that the x64 bit version of the Majestic Software Q400 addon is currently being tested in-house, and should begin beta testing shortly, and the "tentative" release date is now being set for Monday 23rd of October 2017. 

As mentioned in previous updates, there has been a significant amount of work that had to done to resurrect the Q400 for the x64 bit version of Prepar3D, which included replacing a number of functionalities, such as the navigational database engine, 2D panel graphics engine, network and interfacing - to enable them to function and take the full advantage of the x64 bit platform.  Hopefully, the beta testing stage will be fairly straightforward (fingers crossed).

So the question everyone's been curious about: Will there be a cost for the transition to Prepar3D v4?   - Yes, there will be.  Current owners of the PILOT & PRO editions for  FSX/FSX:SE/Prepar3D v3 Q400 PILOT and PRO will be discounted significantly for the Prepar3D v4 transition. The discounts will be provided by the stores where the original purchases were made, or by Just Flight Ltd for the Boxed editions.  

Discount Pricing:  APPLICABLE ONLY TO OWNERS OF THE Q400 PILOT & PRO x32 bit Editions.
PILOT - 14.95 Euros
PRO - 19.95 Euros

New purchases of the MJC Q400 PILOT and PRO Editions for Prepar3D will be the same as the FSX/FSX:SE and Prepar3D v3 editions.

As always, we thank you all for your continued patience and support.

The Majestic Software Team

This is excellent news. This is easily my most eagerly anticipated aircraft for P3Dv4. I purchased it just before V4 released when I had no V3 installed so I have been unable to enjoy flying it. I know it’s going to be even better than before.

What is your problem...ask a reasonable question and because you know everything, you think everyone does! There was no mention of it being v4.1 ready in the post so please, share with us how you knew it is.

Folks,

There is really no need for this aggressive tone amongst each other.  The question was not stupid in that 4.1 has just been released and while it was in use by some of the team, others were not using it....which really was not a big deal as it works on both 4.0 and 4.1, however, more than likely 4.1 and higher will be the supported version.

Rick,

I had initially planned on going, but work actually got in the way of that trip, and Oley was not able to attend mainly to being focused on getting the Q400 v4 ready.  Hopefully, 2018 may be a better year for attending events

Thanks for that, Simeon. I have your PRO version for FSX, and flew it a lot in FSX, but I've passed up on FSX. Is the P3Dv4.1 version a steeper learning curve than the FSX?

I can't imagine it will be any different in terms of operation than the FSX / P3d V3 version?

The learning curve of the Prepar3D v4 edition is no different to that of FSX.  The only thing we have really done is made the add-on compatible with the x64 bit platform.

A compliment addon to the Dash 8 is FS2Crew.  Any thing to report about that as I would feel Majestic and FS2C would have some what of a open communication.
