Lockheed Martin Conducting Prepar3D AMA Next Tuesday – Mention of P3D 4.1 Release


The developers of Prepar3D, Lockheed Martin Tweeted earlier that they’ll be hosting a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Tuesday 26th September between 1pm – 2pm ET. During which time, they’ll be open to questions from the community VR, augmented reality and the software itself.

What’s most interesting is the Reddit thread (link here), has now been deleted, whilst the Twitter post currently remains active. Why? Well, we think it has to do with the fact they may have accidentally revealed that version 4.1 of the simulator will be out very soon. Quoted from the Reddit post, they said “we just released v4.1, so we thought this would be a great time to answer any questions you might have”. I was quick enough to capture a screenshot of the thread before it was deleted. Also note that some of the comments question 4.1 as well.


(Note: 4.1 is NOT released! We have just checked and it’s not available to download)

However, if you then head to the account which posted this thread (u/LockheedMartin), you will notice they’ve posted a new thread, with the above quote now missing.

We’re expecting that the release of version 4.1 is pretty close now and I’m guessing we’ll know for sure by Tuesday. Hopefully this means that beautiful looking A320 from FSLabs isn’t too far behind either.

Releasing Oct. 10th.

I fear both P3d 4.1 and fslabs A320 are both not a 2017 matter, just like QW 787, Rex sky force, Aerosoft A330 etc etc. marketing hypes targeted at 2019 releases.

With FSLABS waiting for 4.1 to come out, but also saying that they are in final stages of beta things are looking good! let’s hope that 4.1 gets released this weekend.

We can only hope. If it does or doesn’t, it would appear to be just around the corner.

Do we already know what will be fixed, improved or new in Prepar3D V4.1?

At this point, no we don’t. We’ll update the community when we find out! 🙂

Interesting that the posts mentions “Aviation Enthusiasts” as the EULA allows for academic, development and educational use only.
