Finally! During the day, just, dusk, and dawn the illumination lights in the cockpit actually work now! That remedies the pitch black cockpits on default aircraft. Finally, they are flyable. Tested on Commander and Mooney Acclaim and Electra. The Electra is a little dark but doable for the most part! Now we are taking!!!

Agree that this works on default aircraft but sadly not on payware aircraft including the majestic q400 which is stated to be v6 ready

I think Majestic may have to actually update their aircraft to make it play nice with this new P3D

But I experience what is tantamount to 'white out' outside with the use of AE until things 'settle' which is hardly realistic.

You can cap the autoexposure range via settings in the Prepar3d.cfg to avoid white out ... seems to be based entirely on full screen pixel dark/light values ... really should be one for the VC and one for outside world.

How does one change the PBR liveries?

Varies by aircraft vendor, you'll need to install some 3rd party graphics tools/software to make adjustments ... too long to explain here ... but I think someone made a video on YouTube specific to PMDG PBR updates, but don't quote me.

I think I posted them already, but will post again later this weekend, in the office right now.

P3D updates in about 15 minutes.  MSFS patches take about 1 hour.

I have a much different experience with P3d v6 and MSFS.  As a matter of fact mine is the inverse of yours. 
Funny thing computers, huh?

It all depends on the size of the patch.

  1. My recent experience in P3D has varied from just a couple minutes to v4 which took around 45 min... v5 was rather fast too...
  2. Whatever it takes I prefer by far this new offer of automatic update checking, download and install than the previous method of having to manually fetch the file(s) from your download area and then install them, sometimes having to properly uninstall previous versions, which was more prown for mistakes...

The i350 in the shot is from V4 that I have carried over from v5 + v6 no longer included in P3D. Used for quick test flights.
