@GSalden Prepar3D is constantly getting more advanced graphics, and payware airliners are evolving all the time. The things we have today was unthinkable just 4 years ago (64bit sim, dynamic lightning, DX12, FSL A320 with its ATSU/CPDLC etc). And all this work is based on a constantly improved platform... boundaries are pushed further every year.

We have today, a much better looking sim and better/more advanced airplanes and performance has increased big time since just 2016,  so I think we can expect both stunning visuals and even more realistic aircraft. History has proven it is possible.

Like you wrote, we have indeed a bright future

What I would love to have is P3D with MSFSs scenery. It's easy like that. And I believe a new Zen 3 beast with a 3090 could handle it already.

Dreaming.....

I agree that P3Dv4/5 is a fantastic platform.  We've come a long way from FSX.

The only real disappointment with P3D for me is flying over areas of the world not covered by ORBX openLC.  ORBX dropped the ball and never finished the promised world coverage, so whenever I fly over Asia or the Middle East the scenery is always somewhat of a letdown.  Other than that I think the scenery is actually pretty darn good.  One must understand that I've been simming since 1984, so what we have now compared to what I've been used to for most of my life is pretty awesome.

I've hidden a bunch of posts that had nothing to do with the topic...I think a lot of us are getting tired of every topic on every forum getting hijacked to a SimZilla discussion.

Enough already.

It's a shame, because some threads actually have useful information but gets drowned out by the "Spanish Inquisition" where all unbelievers must be punished. 😉

Cheers, Rob.

I have been out of the FS scene for a year, although I heard about MS2020, I did not pay too much attention to it much.  Since I have just updated my system, my read and the answer to the OP is that my P3D 4.5 will still be useful for what meager times I have for FS (yes, the 1 year hiatus was solely due to lack of time) for at least 1-2 years.  I am not seeing any advantage to go to P3D v5 nor will I touch MSFS 2020.  I rather have the time spent doing some leisure flying rather than spent all of it in complex setup and tweaks.  It has been a blast reading this thread and realizing that I have not missed anything much 🙃

Last night was a prime example why I still love p3d. Vatsim had a Friday night event. Took out the fslabs a319 in conjunction with my Skalarki fcu and mcdu. Msp to Chicago midway. Countless other addons enhanced the ride.  It was incredible. Life has been a little hectic these days. So I can’t fly as often as I would like. So when I get the chance I cherish it.
