Dawn over KSAN (San Diego)

Recommended Posts

I bought P3D v5 last week, a couple days after RTM.  Since then..it been a blast of discovery and sheer enjoyment.  Where I use to daily haunt the MSFS20 forum, honestly, I haven't even viewed in days.  I am having a blast with P3D v5, and am even 're-discovering' Orbx products, in that I had ALWAYS thought how 'synthetic' all the land class scenery looked since FSX RTM.  This is the first flight simulator platform, that has removed that 'shiny' cartoonish rendering of landclass etc.  As I flew from KOAK to KLAS yesterday over Orbx titles...I was amazed in how life-like the color pallets were now...the (so hard to put into words..) the 'feel'...the 'look' of the terrain as I flew over farmland, mountains, desert..the all of it.  It now (within the limitations of landclass and not photoreal), looks close enough to real terrain, fields, rocks, strata, that it no longer is 'in my face' to dampen the total immersion.  I'm sure that MSFS20 will blow our socks off...but now, I am in no hurry to see it.  Let it mature and grow in Beta.  In the meantime, I am finding P3Dv5 absolutely keeping me so entertained...my shoulders are once more, relaxed.
