P3D v4.5 ??

Recommended Posts

Has anyone seen a possible release date for v4.5, the only reason I am asking is I need to do a complete reinstall of P3D, but will hold off if 4.5 is imminent.

Thanks

John.

Nobody knows when/if it will be relased; however, you can try to extract the date based on LM's history.  To that end, LM has released a new version every 2.4 years:

Nov 2010 V1 released

Nov 2013 V2 released

Sep 2015 V3 released

May 2017 V4 released 

Judging from history, I suspect 4.5 will be released before Jun '19 followed by V5 in May - Sept '20.  Obviously, this is nothing more than speculation based on thier release history, which has be remarkely stable.  The same was true for Microsoft; we got a new sim every 2.5 years....

Better question is what updates will be in it ?

Improvements to the autogen system that would enable those ORBx TrueEarth "3DM files" to be replaced, resulting in vastly improved framerates around London and other "CityScene" style scenery regions without having to sacrifice huge amounts of 3D real estate.

These two alone would be very welcome, wouldn't they?

Giving Ai a few brain cells would be very welcome. They’re just as daft as they were in FSX - 13 years ago! 🤨

If they can make some fundamental improvements to AI, that possibly might help to build sloped runways in later versions.

Interesting....

What was the interval like between sub version updates for V2, V3 and V4?

I thought of another one.......a better depiction of the night sky, and stars that fade in/out realistically at dawn and dusk. At the moment, I have a crazy situation where stars are visible when the entire disk of the Sun is above the horizon, and also the odd star that is visible on the horizon right next to the Sun as it is just about to rise :dry:

Another feature carried over from FSX. 🤪 Just like the stutters when you position on 28 at EGLC, slew up to 500ft and then move westward towards Canary Wharf. Stutters as you cross the prime meridian. I can remember that one in FS95! 🙄

The underlying code must be gathering cobwebs!

Don't you love seeing the clump of aircraft on short final, then have them all do a 180 degree turn at 500ft, when going missed? 😂

If you want to see  well-behaved AI and ATC, just try out the demo of VOXATC. If you don't like it, you can always uninstall it. It's due for a minor update, so ATM, I'd wait to buy it. Of course, one needs a microphone to use it, although for IFR flights, one can assign a AI FO to handle comms.

Interesting! I had no idea VoxAtc handled AI. Does it do a good job? I might have to give it a try.

I appreciate the suggestion.
