Leek shmeek. A turnip from Boeing told me that they are going to release a flightsim to make up for lost revenue from the 737 Max.... but you didn't hear it from me 🤐

They need some airlines for it, it's could well be the downfall of Norwegian and Iceland

I can quite see that LM could potentially pull the plug on any further development leaving us all high-and-dry where future improvements to the sim platform are concerned.

I don't think that'll happen any time soon. LM has its reasons for making p3d, and the "casuals" aren't it, though we're providing some nice ancillary income.

But even if they pull the plug now, and we decide that 4.5 is too buggy, 4.4 is worlds better than FSX was.  And FSX was still going strong 10 years after Microsoft fired the devs. The current state of p3d could carry us to 2030 easily, by which point LR will have had time to eclipse it. I don't think desktop flight sims are going away any time soon.

I have some insight. L.M. will not terminate P3D. Business as usual😉 (sorry I do not know anything about X.P.)

Geez, I haven't seen that clip/gif in ten years or so! And it still does not fail in making me laugh!

(The original video with sound is much better though. "[Unintelligible language, maybe Russian]...[Running noises]...SPLAT!".)

Fun fact: in Austria and Germany a "leek" ("Lauch") is an youth slang term for "i-d-i-o-t" 😉 

More like a slender, tall guy. An word not allowed would be a "Larry" or "Otto". But then again, who knows what's getting the most likes among our fellow kids right now...

Be careful now. Those comments are too serious for this leaky thread. If we're not careful one of those mods will come along and leek this discussion. 😂😂

In ORBX you have to check the control panel to turn on LeekFlow.

I'm pretty sure this is meant as a joke. As such, let's have a little fun and not be serious for a change. Keep it within the boundaries of our TOS and good taste though. 😆

Obviously a joke; it’s just not funny, not even a little bit...

i did go back to FSX STEAM and having a blast with all the latest addons.....FSX feels like home and P3D feels like a motel near my home that i use to cheat on FSX once in a while😁

Which is (was) more fun?

Agree, however the “Patch” topic by Ferd_Berful back in 2002 has to go down as the funniest thread in the history of Avsim.

Not sure if this thread came out of boredom, but I guess that the P3D development team are not exactly a major money-earner for LM and does not evidently have a remit to address the requirements of home-based flight simmers who are humble enthusiasts. I can quite see that LM could potentially pull the plug on any further development leaving us all high-and-dry where future improvements to the sim platform are concerned.

I wonder how popular (and even if we have the money!) any attempt at crowdfunding a successor to P3D would be to provide the community with some continuity in the event that P3D is shelved.

The major income for L.M. comes from P3D. Not from the defense, attack, or science development. "Safe - Secure - Effective".
