What features would you like to see in P3Dv5?

Recommended Posts

Hello! What features would you like to see implemented in Preprar3D v5? For me, I have a few wishes. For one, I wish that you could change the color and transparency of the menu bar in sim. Another thing is that a few default airliners (like the ones from PMDG) in the game by default. Granted, this would raise the cost of the sim, but there should also be an option to buy it with just default planes- no airliners for a cheaper price. And finally, I wish to see backward compatibility with x32 planes in an x64 sim- this would give people that dumped a lot of money into FSX or earlier versions of P3D (before V4) use their planes in a better sim. Now, what would you like to see? Thanks!

I wish a new engine 🤗

 

Which means that there will be No Backwards Comparibility ...

And I am fine with that 😎

No backwards compatibility at all.  New tech all the way.  New terrain engine.  Even better lighting.

Better multicore utilization.

No changes whatsoever, so that I can enjoy the stuff that I have already paid for :wink:

If you stick to what you have you can do that anyway regardless of future changes, can't you?

Agreed as we all invested a ton of money into this, BUT at some point we would have to take the next step... while a painful thought, it may happen one day.

New engine, better handling of terrain loading; essentially something to remove the periodic pauses during flight.  Better multicore management would be great assuming that translates to better average FPS and stability.

Backward compatibility isn't significant for me.

In my opinion it is nothing they should waste ressources on. There will be an add-on that takes care of that. If it is important to you, you will be able to spend a few dollars on it. But if an airport is important to me, there is a 98% chance that someone updated it and uploaded it somewhere.

If third parties can improve any useable visual features,  it is not likely to receive significant development time from LM.  Their valuable development time should be used to make it easier for others to enhance the platform, visually, or otherwise.

The irony of all of the new enhancements LM has already added to P3D4 is that developers are not utilising the full capabilities of the P3D SDK's.  Instead, many continue to take the easy route by wedging 15 year old FSX developments into new versions of P3D. 

For this reason, backward compatibility should be stopped.   This is one of the reasons XP seems to be blazing forward at lightning speed, relative to P3D - backward compatibility doesn't exist.

You nailed it!

LM's focus is going to be on the core elements of the sim to allow the 3rd party 'specialists' to provide the 'eye candy' or more detailed simulation experience than LM could hope to achieve themselves.

I'd like to see better lighting from improved Rayleigh scattering, improved terrain rendering, sloped runways and an AI engine that can both deal with non-flat runways and can deal with STARS, SIDS, speed restrictions and can maintain separation, and most importantly changes to the game engine to enable more data to be processed and by more CPU cores.

What I've described is almost a new sim, but that's fine.
Prepar3D needs to let go of legacy compatibility (it won't though) to bring the brightest and best new features. Those calling for maintaining compatibility with earlier P3D versions and even FSX products  are guilty of cakeism.
FSX broke compatibility with FS9, didn't stop me continuing to use and enjoy it for several years. FS9 even got new products developed for it for a long time after FSX was on the scene.
You buy software to work at that specific date, having it work with future products is just a bonus.

What I really would like to see is a real atmosphere... Get rid of texture based clouds.

Moisture, Haze, Fog, Clouds, changing lighting conditions all based on laws of physic.

Imagine beeing at FL400 and you have fully OVC conditions at around FL250 ish and you can realy "feel" the altitude...
