PTA Will Continue to Live on with P3DV4 Thanks to Matt Davies

Img 5933b88b7acd3

We published an article yesterday indicating that a Reddit user has been reverse engineering the original PTA to be able to work with Prepar3D V4. We were contacted by a few developers asking us to remove it due to the fact that it wasn’t clear if the Reddit user had acquired the rights to do so. As a result, it appeared that wasn’t the case, and as such, we removed the post immediately.

However, Matt Davies then contacted us to confirm he has purchased the original source code and will be releasing a new version which is compatible with Prepar3D V4, as well as a host of other features.

This is completely separate from the information we posted yesterday regarding the Reddit user. There is no connection between the two developers here at all.

The tool will be suitable for both P3DV4 and P3DV3 and also use new technology to make for a slicker experience. The biggest news is the fact this new update will have a community section which will allow people to browse and apply other people’s settings immediately. So if you’re on Twitch and like the look of their sim, look them up, download and enjoy.

As the PTA was purchased for a high amount, this will be a payware tool. The amount hasn’t been disclosed yet, but it “won’t be expensive”. Release is expected in the next couple of weeks.

We’ve contacted Matt to ask for some screenshots of the new tool. We’ll update this post if we get anything.
