  1. I've done a couple of 5-hour flights in the PMDG B777 using v5.4 and haven't noticed any differences in performance, be it studders or frame rates. That's just on my system however, so others may see different results.
  2. I'd wait for HOTFIX 1 at least.
  3. I certainly don't expect to see all the developers who abandoned P3D to come rushing back with updates for this. They're way to busy making good money developing products for MSFS.
  4. I'm a retired Airline Pilot and flew the Boeing 737,757, and 777 for many years. I agree that P3D allows me to fly those aircraft in a simulated environment with a high degree of accuracy. I haven't made the jump to MSFS yet, mainly because I'm waiting for my new computer to be built first. That being said, I'm not in any position to make comparisons, but for me flying under bridges using an Xbox controller is not my idea of flight simulation. Just my opinion though, not a judgement on other simmers. Thanks.
  5. That's the best idea. Wait, because the only ones who REALLY know are the insiders at LM, and we all know how silent they are. There's nothing any of us can say or do that will change that. If there's a new version, or if P3D ceases to exist, it's totally out of our hands.
  6. We haven't heard anything from LM in over a year. Do you guys really think there's anything in the works? I don't.
  7. Yes, Ray I've heard of NDAs. I'm a beta tester for a company mentioned in this topic several times. No need to be condescending.
  8. I haven't seen an update for any of my P3D Orbx, Flight Beam, Imaginesim, Fly Tampa, Tropicalsim, Taxi2Gate, MK- Studios, or any of the many other scenery and aircraft products that I own for a long long time. This tells me that at this point, V6 is nothing more than a pipe dream and wishful thinking. There's a lot of chatter and speculation in numerous forums, but that's about it. I've seen nothing official that absolutely convinces me a new P3D version is on the way any time soon, if at all. I know I'll catch a lot of flak for saying this, but that's just how I see it. So, go ahead and quote me and tell me how wrong I am. I hear that from my wife every day. I do, however, use P3Dv5.3, and it works well with all my scenery and weather addons. I fly large Boeings almost exclusively, as I did for many years in the real world, so I feel this is by far the best platform available for this type of flying. Stay safe!
  9. I'm guessing never. It would be too little too late.
  10. In my opinion, the only way there will a v6 is if MSFS falls flat on its face. One scenario is that after a few thousand more people are using it, the servers will be so overloaded with Xbox kids, that the sim will be unusable. Even now, people are being switched to the offline mode. Also, when's the last time you saw any v5 scenery updates from Orbx, Flight Beam, Imaginesim, or any of the other big-name developers? It has basically come to a screeching halt. If you like v5, I would suggest enjoying it because I honestly believe it's the last version. Even if v6 does materialize, I'm not going to shell out another $200+ for something that will probably be ignored by the developers. Again, just an opinion, so no stupid comments please.
  11. Look at how many developers have updated their P3D products in the past year, and that should answer your question.
  12. I can't wait to spend another $200 on a new version of P3D.😡
  13. Personally, I'm at the point now where I'm tired of all the BS, and I just don't give #&*% anymore. Let them all do whatever the %&$ they want.
  14. Get used to it people. There are very few developers that are bothering with P3D anymore. When I think of all the money I've spent on P3D products over the years, just to have the rug pulled out from under me, it makes me sick to think I have to start all over again.
