P3D V5.1 will make MSFS disappear into the background (hard coded and no customization) ... oh wait, it's not even in the foreground yet 🙂

Roger that, Rob, i´am sure that LM will takle out of their EA what´s possible and usefull, and what i said isn´t contradicting in fact. Generally we users benefit from competition by chance. And if the upcoming MSFS even increases the motivation of the LM developers in advancing and evolving P3D much further, i´ll be very happy with that. I am anyway preparing myself for a longer lasting P3D, because as long we can´t held the evidence in hand, i doubt that MS will cope with all that "included" stuff where actually and over the last decades even more of hundreds add-on developers where needed to have a weather engine, Ground-services, complex aircrafts, usable atc etc.😉 But we will see and if it really come true...so what, take it and be happy.

Lots of flickering of textures too.

Stan

yes, plus the artifacts arround other sceneryobjects like mountains, trees etc. 

BUT....anyway EA give us a sneak peak what we can exspect in the short term from P3D, and i think it will be very nice. And even add-ons like AS will manage the controlling of the weather within EA. In my eyes the V5 is already a big step forward. In legacy mode, with ASP3D, ENVSHADE+ENVTEX+ASCA i have a very very nice and realistic sky, clouds and athmosphere, even better than in V4.5. And on top of that absolutely no stutters anymore at EDDF, EGLL or what ever. And i have set the cloud draw distance up to 120 mi and i see far out weather fronts comming allong my leg like they can be seen on my weather radar on the ND. Thats one important portion of flying airliners across europe for me because of the high dynamic weather here where you have 30°C and burning sun in the south (LEPA etc) and 12° C stormy and rainy in the north like EDDH. 

And i am really looking foward to use EA only once it´s out of the Diapers, because of the beautifull and much more realistic nightsky, stars, dusk and dawn twilight, sunscattering etc. 👍😍
