Not really sure why the term "engine" or "plug-in" really matters and/or why they need to be distinguished?  But from my perspective (a programmer/developer):

Thanks!

Truesky has been around for many years. Those with keen memory might recall Dovetails "FlighSimWorld ", where Truesky was retrospectively implemented in mid 2017 in a DX11 environment.

It looked good even back then...half finished and rather sub-optimized.

I have some addons (pay- and freeware) for P3D V4.5 that I don't want to miss, not even for a much better visual experience in MSFS. 

 

Lotus L-39, Duke B-60, Return to Misty Moorings, Flight1 BN-2 Islander, to name a few. I hope I can use them on V5 as well.

 

Regarding rendering of streamed Bing material: why shouldn't this be possible with an addon for P3D? We need mesh, textures and some 3D objects on top (trees, buildings, etc.....). Shouldn't matter if the textures come from disk or internet?

Beredirr, you accidentally said Laminar a few times where you meant LM

Yes, I made a mistake there: Laminar = Lockheed Martin in the last few sentences of my post. My bad!

Well, I think it's not only having the data and a means to stream it all from the cloud but also it seems that MSFS uses considerable AI to modify the images, place / modify autogen, etc, so I think there is a lot more than importing say Bing or Google data. At least that's what I understood from the MSFS forums and what the devs have shared in their videos.

No changes to the almost 20 years old flight model, barely noticeable graphic improvements, looks more like v4.6 to me.

I can't imagine that there are many people who are going to buy a rather mediocre P3D improvement and to pay again for updated old addons. 

And....do we know are they charging or....?

I applaud the level of hyperbole and  exaggeration in this thread. It makes for entertaining reading.

Anyone got a screenshot of the stock V4 Haneda for comparison to the one in the trailer?

P3D v.5 should be released as a service pack.

I'm confused by an email that I just received from LatinVFR. They claim that SODE is incompatible with V5. But the official SODE site says that version 1.66 is already compatible with V5. Further, version 1.67 has subsequently been released to eliminate some false positives that were generated by a few anti-malware apps.

Since the NDA has been lifted, can we see P3d with some examples of addons that work, as it sounds like some may already be doing so? Any more videos or pics from devs or testers would help assess things further... : )

The FSW version of Truesky was "dumbed down" to improve performance. The main issue with using volumetric clouds is matching cloud types to atmospheric conditions. It's easy to correctly place CB, cumulus, stratus and cirrus. Accurately simulating the  intermediate forms of cloud types is where the challenge exists. It's not just eye candy. Piloting takes advantage of observation of cloud types. It's not a critical need, but it would be nice.

By looking at the LM's trailer and Rob's video, do you think the trueSky in V5 is a 'dumbed down' version like FSW or it fully utilizes the capability of trueSky?

I don’t know but there was not much variation in cloud types from the ribs video or LM’s “trailer”. Looked like some repeating clouds too. Hopefully this can be improved

I'm guessing Rob got special permission to post that video. You would think by now since the NDA is lifted that there would be quite a few on YouTube but the only one's I can find are the one from LM and the one from Rob
