I changed my mind. At 1st I wanted to buy on release and hoped to be one of the lucky ones to test, but now I've decided to wait and see if I can get answers to these two questions:

1) Are there still pauses or stutters when arriving at payware airports with AIG AI or other traffic AI add-ons? This is an immersion killer!

2) Does the AG still load in tiles in the distance or is there still missing AG being displayed when arriving at complex airports?

If those issues have not been addressed and fixed, I will pass on P3D v5, stick with P3d v4.5 & XP11.50. That's until MSFS2020 is released.

I hope that early adopters can save me the time and aggravation of having to buy, test, be disappointed, and hope for a LM refund.

I will wait as long as it takes.

Thank you!

Alright. But honestly, P3D, even with Ortho, doesn't look as nearly as good as MSFS does? Or am I mistaken? Besides, it's my understanding, with MSFS you have it for the whole world.

Nothing looks as good as MSFS, (or at least from the PR material we've seen so far) IMO. It's quite impressive what Asobo/Microsoft has accomplished with this! But, to be honest, I'll withhold judgement about comparing the two sims, until I get my hands on MSFS - whenever that might be...

I’m on the tech alpha FS2020 and I’m going to purchase without any kind of doubts P3D V5. I believe that v4.5 HF2 it’s the best flight sim I’ve enjoyed since FS5 and think that P3D V5 will be better. Most important for me are what can I do and feel inside the cockpit that to fly around my house. We have amazing addons on P3D for enjoy the pleasure of fly. 😊😊

@anden145 MSFS is releasing a Partnership Series Update in two days time (16/04); they say they have over 150 third party companies using their SDK to develop for the sim, so hopefully it should be an interesting one!

Plus they're releasing a video on IFR at the start of May so should give us more insight into the functionalities of the stock aircraft and most likely the heavies!

That looks much nicer than in Robs earlier video of the float plane, which to me looked like a giant oil slick.

I wonder how inland water will be handled by v5? For instance, if there is no wind will it be mirror smooth

with amazing reflections as in real life? Still not sure about the animations at 2.50, a bit unrealistic?
