New entry on p3d website - implied future actions?

Recommended Posts

Was posted 18 October, and is just a short reference to a company that makes scenery - airfields/airports.

But it occurred to me that the header title:  "Prepare Yourself for Challenging Approaches"  could mean that we should prepare ourselves for a new version of p3d with these sceneries coming with it.

The clouds in the pictures are all p3d vers 5 clouds.

What do you think?😊

Thanks for the link, that looks very interesting. Some new sceneries and challenges would be most welcome.

Those are MK Studio sceneries (I have all of them). I am thinking P3D is just promoting MK Studio sceneries.

Although it says: "Prepare yourself"?

We have to be ready for something different?

You have to be able to pickup on impled nuances as a message.😉🤩

Maybe all of the MK Studios scenery packages are going to be included with P3Dv6? A bit like the IniBuilds A310 in MSFS.

Don't know about all of them, maybe its just the ones shown in the pics.

If the pics show vers 6 rather than vers 5, then the clouds will look just the same really.

Not much of a fan of the clouds in the current version, thats why I use Rex Sky Force with p3d v5.3.

The timing of the announcement is interesting. Just a few days after v6 beta was leaked.

MK Studios are one of the best developers. Any association with LM is to be welcomed. 👍

There is a nasty cliff short of the runway in the last screenshot, so they would need to sort that out. I have to admit that I am not over impressed with some of the surrounding buildings and scenery if this is indeed anything to do with P3Dv6, but I will sit on the fence and watch proceedings with a calm and professional gaze :biggrin:

Well, I guess I'd better put my P3D installation on hold.

I think you can take it as read those images are v5 given LM haven’t even mentioned a v6. 😁

Wow, one post every six months is really not exactly regular! I'm still hoping for more content with v6 though 🙂

You guys are reading way too much into this post. They do developer spotlights often and they're called "[Developer] Design Showcase." There's always a subtitle and it doesn't mean anything. See this one: https://www.prepar3d.com/p3d-developer-network/2022/02/120966/

Exactly, on that same page is the "Trending" column that shows that 5.3HF2 is available and a link to the iFly Advanced release for V5....  Nothing about V6 to read from that post... 

They did the same for DD back in February...

My feeling is that P3d will indeed announce a VERSION SIX!  For the longest time, I was concerned that there would be an incremental improvement and we'd have a P3d v5.4. However, the latest comments and sporadic references seem to definitely point of Version 6.  To me, that suggests a major update, and if I were to just guess at what it would be, I would hope it to be a major scenery update.  This would seem logical because the strength of MSFS is its scenery.  

I hope I'm right, and I check here on this forum several times a day just to see that wonderful post that says P3d has a major update! 

Love to hear from Simbol.

don't expect a new (built from the ground up) p3d version soon.  V6 will have the same textures like V5 and will require all our ORBX/REX addons to make it pretty👍😂
