If you haven’t heard, FSLabs recently released their long anticipated A320 series for FSX, leaving many P3D users with a bitter taste in the mouth, as a P3D version has yet to be released. After a successful launch, Lefteris has provided an update on the course of action for the future of the series.
First talked about is what will happen in the intimidate future. As you probably guessed, further bug fixes for the FSX version, just to fix a few CTD (crash to desktop) and other “immersion breaking bugs”, which is currently preventing a few users from enjoying their $99.95 product. Once the team is back in full, they will CONTINUE (not begin) beta testing on P3D, ensuring it runs just as smooth.
With that said, it could be weeks or -gulp- months until we see the Prepar3d version, but when it’s ready, it will be released. As for pricing, we can expect it to be $30-40 more than the FSX version – which is in line with other high-end products. If you’ve already bought the FSX version, you can include a P3D licence on top of your FSX copy, meaning you’ll own both (not lose the other if you upgrade). THIS is different from other developer’s pricing strategy, and a very customer friendly one at that!
After this has all happened, FSlabs will then begin working on the more “advance” version of the ‘bus, at which time more information will be released.
Until then, be paitent, as this baby will be worth it in the end.
FSX review coming soon!
