why is anybody still using P3D

Recommended Posts

When you post remind yourself what the title of the topic is. I’ve just hidden a post because it didn’t answer the question in the topic title.

Sniping at MSFS is not a valid response. State your reasons why you continue to use P3D. It’s not rocket science.

P3D Pros:

1. Stable and smooth, especially v5, no frequent and forced updates

2. Accurate live and historical weather, realistic clouds

3. No scenery data streaming required

4. Lots of freeware and payware aircraft, easy to tinker with plane config files and make flight dynamics more realistic

5. Easy to create and modify airport AFCADS and scenery

6. Accurate and realistic AI traffic, loads of freeware AI aircraft and flight plans

P3D Cons:

1. No good terrain textures or landclass for Asia

Sniping at P3D is OK then.

If you want to ban me from Avsim so be it.

OK, folks, this inevitably ended up in yet another variation of the same sim vs sim foodfight.  Locked.
