Running P3D on a Network system.

Recommended Posts

I am interested in running P3D on a network. I just tried Sim-Avionics using thier software in conjunction with P3D and their 737-800. With everything maxed out to the right and all the boxes check marked,  was getting 40 to 60 FPS. This was great but to buy the software was $900.00 US Dollars. 

Sim-Avionics was a Demo which would allow you to fly for 50 minutes at the Manchester, England  airport as long as you didn't get more than 20 miles away. They will let you use the software quite a few times which was great with all the eye candy turned up.

I have iFly and PMDG planes and I am not able to run them on two computers.

Please inform me of any other software or planes that I am able to use and not have to spend $800 to $1,000.00 US Dollars for.

I am also thinking of buying the Airliner X cockpit from SimSamurai.

Has anyone got any thoughts or suggestions on this, good or bad?

Project Magenta is an option. Also Ifly has a 737cockpit builders addition which would allow you to run on a network I believe. PMDG has stated that they intend to further support cockpit builders but that was years ago and nothing new since. No surprises there though.

"P3D on a network" spans a lot of different possibilities, such as a hardware flight deck with instrumentation and panel spread out over multiple displays, separate acft panel and outside view environment on one or more displays, etc.

What, more specifically, are you trying to do?
