Prepar3D-Version 5 - Coming Soon
« on: April 07, 2020, 10:41:32 PM »
Prepar3D-Version 5 - Coming Soon to a theater near you!

Lockheed Martin announced the launch of the new version of Prepar3D 5 next week, @ April 14th.

They introduce it as the first big step “in the development of an all new platform”. It will support DirectX 12, allows the airports designers to make sloping runways. There are also two major improvements integrated : “Realistic sky, clouds, and atmosphere with Simul trueSKY integration.” and “Dynamic ocean with NVIDIA WaveWorks 2.0″.

Their announcement lists also the new aircraft and enhancements : for example, the “F-35B and F-35C variants with PBR textures developed by IndiaFoxtEcho, Updated F-35A model with PBR textures developed by IndiaFoxtEcho, and Updated F-22 model developed by IRIS Simulations.”.

But don't switch to it on day 1 - or even on Day 30+ - That is unless all the devs have all their 3rd party apps/produces ready and compatible for use P3DV5x that you use now in P3Dv4.5x. IE: Active Sky, EZdok, Spad, FSUIPC, Simconnect, ORBX Central  4.1.99! REX, etc etc etc. (They may all need updates before being compatible for use P3Dv5x!  so wait until all required is updated)
 


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------




And where might MS2020 be in this equation? A bit delayed but really no one knows for sure other than
it is still in the alpha testing phase so it will be a while!

Just noticed it on LM‘s website.
Interesting, there were no announcements earlier the last weeks.

I‘m curios how the volumetric clouds and the Wavesystem look like, especially in VR.

Also the updates on the helicopter autopilot is good news.....I‘d wish a hovermode and windcorrection.

Yes, it‘s good waiting for the relevant updates by third party devs....

I'm happy with 4.5 now, but I will try V5. The question is if it is possible to use ORBX for 4.5 and 5.0 in parallel.

Ditto exactly here too Karl. Should be able to run both in parallel but will have to make sure before trying it and also will be waiting for the dev's out there to updated their installers for v5.

V5 is a new sim running DX12 and is a separate install.

According to the Web Site, FSUIPC6 will be released before P3Dv5 hits the market.
