It's difficult to keep count of responses in normal forum threads.  If you have contributed to the other thread, convert your response to a polled response here.  

Could one of the mods please pin this for a week?

I picked "Better thread optimization" but what I want is better performance.

I specifically left better performance out because that's usually the result of some other improvement and isn't in itself a feature enhancement.  I think as a general rule 'better performance' is always general goal

I bet the end result will be the ATC, this is the result of years of failure of Vatsim + IVAO + Etc. in providing better environment for online users so people are retrieving back to flying offline since they want to feel the immersion level of ATC traffic, unfortunately the offline ATC is also bad but at least they can ignore it, buy PRO-ATCx, VOXATC, RC4 and others and have a slight improvement.

If only you could control the AI traffic better.. :wink:

There is no immersion in PC generated ATC.  I wish more people would convert to online

Is the result of this poll being posted on the LM requested P3D features forum.

I wondered only I see you started three threads on this forum about the shortcomings of P3D in the past week.

seems like "better thread optimization" (better performance) is an early leader

Hi Folks,

ATC - ATC - and yet again ATC...

I am not sure that you would appreciate having my PMDG airliners flying around online. There could be a few close calls, and I don't like being shouted at :ph34r:

Don't get me wrong, everyone hate the PC generated ATC this is why they want it better, but they prefer to see traffic around rather than end up flying alone on empty skies on Unicom 128.00.

And yes if more people fly online then it would be different, but some how VATSIM + IVAO + Etc. are not doing a good job on this subject!

Hi Folks,

Yeah - more specifically - my holy grail for ATC - is ATC that provides actual traffic separation - also ATC that is terrain aware - even with addons I don't think either has been accomplished yet...

Scott

Even just fixing the shadows appear/disappear since P3Dv3 will do for me :)

I don't think of True Sky as better atmospherics for P3D. From what I saw in FSW, True Sky left a lot to be desired, and I much prefer ASP4 over True Sky.

But I must say I'm in favor of all the improvements listed. Weather just has an edge on all features for me, possibly because its the most difficult to get correct, as it is the most important, dynamic, and diverse aspect of flight.

Surprised so few people chose PBR.  At least from this list it's my most desired feature.  It's basically the only thing X-Plane does better, IMHO.  If P3D matches it I will no longer be tempted to pick up XP11.

I voted for a new terrain engine.  However, I'd be happy to see a greatly improved terrain engine plus improved ATC.  I'll bet that thread optimization will be something that LM will do as well.

I think I wasted the 'Sloped Runways' option, because that would,  by default,  be provided if a new terrain engine was included (I'm suppose)

I think it's because it has been rumoured on certain news sites that PBR (in whatever form) might be out sooner than V5.

I can understand that line of reasoning, though I would point out that rumors don't always prove true.  I personally wouldn't expect it until v5 but am ready to be pleasantly surprised.

Any option that negatively impacts 3rd party add-on developers is not likely to happen. So I don't expect improvements to be be made to the built-in ATC. And as much as 3D clouds would be great, that also impinges on developers like REX and HiFi.

LM will probably focus on implementing PBR and then Vulkan. I could also see improvements being made that would allow developers to have an easier time in realistically modeling turboprops.

Crash modeling? Really?
