Without any doubt.  It's a visual enhancement, but a really pleasing one.

I run P3Dv4 right outo f the box without tweaks and all is well, in fact I hear tweaking is not necessary now nor advantageous...just a placebo.

PTA isn't tweaking as in terms of performance, it's a visual tweak/ enhancement of the shaders - incredibly useful and improves p3d's look so much!

I too have no P3D tweaks in the CFG file at all etc. This is something totally different to tweaking in the normal sense that we used to do with FSX etc.

Hi Chris,

If your main goal is flying your planes in P3D without caring about how good the outside environment look then you can keep flying with default P3D look. But if you like flying in a really beautiful, real life looking environment (sky, vegetation, clouds and their shadows...etc) then PTA is a must have.

Cheers

It's not available at simmarket. This is why is sometimes better to buy directly from the dev.

Update: Followed the instructions and I now have the latest version. THANKS!

PTA itself will not do anything. Whether your visual flight experience is enhanced depends on the profile you use with PTA. It is not that easy to create or find a profile that reflects your needs. Personally, I would look out for one that resembles real world.

Updating to 4.1 made me realize how awful the default sim looks.  It is so washed out and I can't stand how bright the VC is and how bright the nighttime is, etc, etc..  PTA is really one of the top couple products I have ever bought for flightsim. It gives the ability to transform your entire sim experience.  That said, you may have to play around with it to get certain things to your liking but many of the popular presets will get you started.

lol, try Re-shade it is free, if you like the result invest in PTA which is designed specifically for PD3.

Both use post processing shaders to provide best looking and realistic views.

Simbol.

I never used any of these add ons, because some of the screen shots I have seen , look strange to me. A question I have is , if you install one of these shader mods, and don't like it, is it easy to roll back to default, or has one created a nightmare requiring reinstalling P3D?
