Switching to P3D V4 - I need advice.

Recommended Posts



I'm using P3D v3 at the moment, having quite a few add ons and everything is working flawlessly, no CTDs or anything.

Airplane Add Ons are:

Aerosoft Airbus (wanna switch to FSL anyway)

Aerosoft CRJ


PMDG 747

Majestic Dash 8

Now, besides the Airbusses and the Dash8 which is actually coming to V4 this month, there are no incompatibilities. But to the scenerys. I'm using quite many of Taxi2Gate, FlyTampa, Aerosoft etc. 

(I even made my own map on google so that I can choose destinations lol,-0.3039923,3z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!6m1!1s1td8j8QAzfd8s4CfG5eAv22WLYYU ). But here we come to my little personal problem with the possible switch to V4: Aerosoft charges tremendous prices for their V4 versions. Is that the same with other Add On developers? I'm also using ASN with some freeware cloud/sky textures combined with REX Essentials Overdrive. I'm also flying on VATSIM with vPilot and using EzDok (the old one) with TrackIR. Are there any problems I should expect when switching to V4 in the not-that-far-away-future? I kinda don't really see the point in it now, as the performance at least framewise is still not really better, dynamic lighting kind of scares me as I think it is kind of just another factor to make the sim unstable. But now that Qualitywings has released their 787 and from what I've heard they're only doing a Prepar3D V4 version (can anyone confirm that and besides that, why? FSX and Prepar3D 32Bit seem to have more in common than 64Bit(?) )

I hope someone is willing to give some advice in general to me.

Thanks very much :)

I'm also asking myself if we have a steering tiller in every airplane now that you can select an axis to it in V4?
