After enduring the torture of P3D V5.2 HF2 for 5 months, we finally ushered in P3D V5.3. After going through the new installation, let's talk about its improvement and improvement.
There is a small improvement in performance, and there is no substantial improvement in the number of frames, and some stuttering phenomena have been fixed.
The most significant improvement is the enhancement of the atmosphere and volumetric clouds. Improved the problem that clouds cannot block the terrain in version 5.2. The arrangement of clouds has a stronger sense of hierarchy. There will be no obvious sudden changes in weather and cloud rolling. But the rainfall is still very insignificant.
A few UI changes have been added, but they have no effect on me.
Added a dynamic blur function, which is useless.
This update of P3D makes me feel that it has not been essentially hit by MSFS2020, and is still occupying a favorable market as an independent product, and it is full of development prospects. As a player with medium to high configuration, I hope that P3D products can continue to optimize performance, improve image quality, enrich functions, and increase influence.
Here are some suggestions, if you think it is valuable, you can refer to it.
If you do not have too much anxiety about the current P3D V5.2HF2 version, or the current 5.2 version is very stable, you can temporarily not consider updating 5.3. Because ordinary players do not feel any performance improvement at all, especially fslabs players. If you often fly into the mountains, it is very necessary to upgrade 5.3, because it solves the problems of clouds and terrain. Another benefit of Update 5.3 is that the real atmosphere and volumetric clouds have enhanced the performance of the weather system, and the problem of cloud rollover will not occur due to changes in ATIS.
In addition, let's talk about Fslabs. Although the addon manager function is online, the overall performance of fslabs is still not as good as PMDG optimization. Due to some architectural issues, the frame rate continued to drop and stuttering occurred, so that the performance of the 2080ti graphics card is still not ideal.
