    Chuck_Jodry-VJPL

    Level-D Simulations and Flight One Software have officially released the Prepar3D v3 and Windows 10 compatibility update for the Level-D 767-300.

    The Level-D 767-300 is one of the most iconic products ever released for the flight simulation platform. Level-D, working with Flight1, have now provided an update to their classic 767-300 so that it works natively in Prepar3D and also Windows 10. Compatibility is also included for FSX Steam.

    This compatibility update is free to all previous purchasers of the Level-D 767-300 for FSX. The full installer also contains the previous Winglet models and there is no need to download these models separately.

    For more information please visit the Level-D Simulations 767-300 Product Page

    It'd be nice if they'd at least give a discount to Fs9 owners of their product to upgrade....

    Indeed, there's a discount for FS9 owners, I think at US$14.95. Check that at the FlightOne website.

    Good luck, Ed

    Glad to see the 767 back!  Working great on P3D, but would love to see updates including a weather radar.

    That's good to know. I didn't see it. I appreciate you telling me about it, Ed! :-) 

    I'm off to go check it out to see where that link is.

     

    Cheers!

    Don't understand the excitement over a plane originally designed when FS2000 was the current flight sim version....

    First, it wasn't designed when FS2000 was the current flight sim; additionally, if you don't get the excitement, you probably have never flown this gem.  While the graphics are outdated, the system modeling and FDE are still top-notch.  For many, the latter is more important than the former.  Finally, is there a better 767 option available?  

    BTW, there's a new ZINERTEK texture set for LevelD; it really breathes new life into the VC.  You can find it on Simmarket....

    Installing this Update throws up an Error Flag that ' FSX-SE will disable a Third Party add-on LVLD.dll'.

    Anyone else see this Error Flag too?

    I agree that product is better in terms of visuals but sorry, it's not even close on system depth, nor flight modelling (yes, even in X-Plane!).

    Please elaborate and show your work.  I'm genuinely curious because I have this plane in XP and haven't seen anything that would lead me to believe something is not working as intended.

    I see this from time to time but it is a "false positive."  Just choose the option to run that dll (if you can -- I don't use Windows 10 for FSX).

    I also would like to see a side by side systems comparison,But in my opinion X-Plane 10/11 makes up for any alleged systems deficiencies. I bought a new 2017 Harley Night Rod so I have far less time for P3D tweeking/repair.............

    The point of a flight simulator is to simulate flight. A visual model is important, but when you think of an actual Level D simulator, it has no visual model, just high quality systems and flight modelling.

    The Level D 767 may not be the best visually, but the fact that it is more than 13+ yrs old and going strong shows that it was way ahead of its time. The systems are very detailed and many developers are only NOW catching up the level of work done by LVLD 767 developers.

    Honestly speaking, in its current state (systems), if it had a new visual model, terrain and wxr simulation and all the new fancy lighting effect, this product could still be a best seller.

    I am not denigrating the Level D,as I purchased it when it was released,and got more than my money was worth in enjoyment. I just cannot deal with P3D in its current state,maybe when they release P3D 64 bit,and I can get my over 100 P3D payware airports(and lots more assorted add on's) to work with it,along with all my PMDG products,which I greatly miss.

    The Level D plane was the successor to Wilco's Pilot in Command for FS2000...here is a link to AVSIM's review http://www.avsim.com/pages/0301/767pic/pic.html    Just look at the 2d panels.  Almost the exact same as they are today. The primary systems programming for the plane goes all the way back to then.   I will never forget the first time I hit N1 for the first time and marveled as the engines spooled up....It's been on my hard drive in all of its forms for the nearly 17 years it's been around.  It's a good flyer - but it is a very very old airplane.

    Thanks for that suggestion. Using Windows 10 64-bit FSX-SE, When I ignore that 'False Positive', FSX-SE will not load.

    There is for X-Plane,which I went to for the better stability,and frame-rates than P3D http://store.x-plane.org/Boeing-767-300-ER-Professional_p_444.html.            

    Dude I just got a new PC just to run P3D Pro Plus (I work at Lockheed so its free for me) and it runs better than FSX does. And i don't have in insane processor. 3.8 quad with turbo to 4.2 and a 2 GB Nvidia 1050 Ti. 30 fps with clouds on in cities with any Carenado HD Plane(Frame hogs).

    I didn't suggest the XP version wasn't working as intended. Simply that the systems simulation and FDE are far inferior to the Level D.

    Beware - this still does NOT work properly in Prepar3d v3! You cannot import and export panel states (probably because the devs haven't updated the expected directory for "\Documents\Prepar3D v3 Files\". Also the configurator app does not run in windows 8.1 - you will get a runtime error complaining about MSCOMCTL.OCX, but it's erroneous as registering that ocx does not resolve the issue.

    Hahaha this is laughable. You are making a comparison between simulator scenery visuals when we are talking about a specific airplane looking like garbage. It was great then, not anymore.

    Besides, the reason level d aim visuals don't matter is because you're sitting in a freaking cockpit. We don't have that ability in p3d so if there is a great VC, it does really add to the immersion.
