‘Updated for Prepar3d V4’

A lot of stuff this week was released with compatibility for P3DV4. And there was almost just as much news from developers announcing their plans or giving us an update about their support for the updated platform. Instead of making a whole bunch of different posts, we’ve decided to collect everything that has been updated for Prepar3d V4 this week into one post. And there’s a lot.

REX

Over on their forums REX gave us an update into their product status for P3DV4. WorldWide Airports HD, Texture Direct, Texture Direct w/Soft Clouds and REX Soft Clouds will shortly receive a hot fix to be compatible. Release is estimated for this month.

Weather Architect, Essentials Plus and Essentials Plus Overdrive will require a major service pack to be compatible. The release time is yet to be determined.

ImagineSim

ImagineSim announced over on Facebook that all their sceneries are now compatible with P3DV4. People that have previously purchased any product for P3DV3 will receive a free update. ImagineSim compatible sceneries are: KATL, KLGA, ZSPD, KAUS, VIDP, KSJC and KCLT.

Jetstream Designs

These guys took the time to give a really nice update to some of their previous sceneries. Both updated with P3DV4 support are Marseille and Little Rock. The latter has also been updated with volumetric light halos. But that’s not all, because both sceneries got a nice overhaul and are now featuring brand-new, completely updated SODE jetways. You can find some screenshots of the updated sceneries below.

Drzewiecki Design

UUEE Moscow Sheremetyevo, EPWA Warsaw and EETN Tallinn have all received an update to be compatible with P3DV4.

LatinVFR

Miami V3 is now compatible.

MILVIZ

MILVIZ will be updating the majority of their aircraft. This includes aircraft that has previously been released for P3DV4, with a few exceptions. MILVIZ have stated they will issue a $5 upgrade fee. Every upgrade will come with MILVIZ new MVAMS tool which is used for framework features and includes the capability of updating their products in the future.

Global AI Ship Traffic

This freeware add-on loved by so many also got an update to P3DV4. The add-on has been split up in several separate parts which you can install almost independently (some files are required). There are a lot of new models (the total amount is now 179) and routes added that cover the entire globe.

Airports of Norway

AoN, my personal favourite, got updated as well. This (freeware) package will continue to receive updates to fix issues with airports as they are being found.

Aerosoft Oslo Gardermoen

A big update coming from Aerosoft. ENGM Oslo has been updated for P3DV4 and a lot of new features have been added. The full list can be found over here. Notable though is definitely the added support for SODE for animated jetways, passengers and de-ice service. Another very notable feature is added support for Prepar3d volumetric lighting for flood lights and the headlights from de-ice trucks.

BlackBox Simulation

Last but not least on our list is BlackBox. These guys have updated both their Aviation Bulldog & Cessna L19 aircraft for P3DV4 for free.

ImagineSim Ultra HD Textures – More Previews

ImagineSim Ultra HD textures have been given some more previews today and in particular, the team showed off further shots from their upcoming Singapore scenery.

Earlier last month, the team revealed that Singapore would feature their first selection of Ultra HD textures for their scenery as we move into an era of 64-bit sims. As you can see, the detail in the navigation equipment buildings is extremely high and rich.

The team mentioned that there will be an alternate set for those “not migrating to P3D v4 64-bit“.

We’ll be sure to update you with more details over the coming weeks.

ImagineSim Preview Ultra HD Texture – Reiterates Confirmation of Prepar3d V4 64bit

On Facebook, ImagineSim have shown off a new preview of their Ultra HD texture set, made specifically for Prepar3d.

Showing off their latest scenery, Singapore 2017, the team really wanted to show off the detail available with their Ultra HD texture set. In fact, they are so pleased with the results they will texture all of their 3D models in the same level of detail.

Immediate concerns are, of course, VAS. ImagineSim then went on to confirm that the usual HD texture sets will be available for those who won’t be migrating to Prepar3d v4 64 bit.

We’ve already posted our rumour findings and then confirmation from Lockheed Martin themselves. This is the first time a developer has publicly confirmed Prepar3d v4 will be 64 bit.

More details will be given soon.

And just in case the Facebook post goes walkies, here’s a screencap.

ImagineSim release San Jose (KSJC) for Prepar3d

ImagineSim update New Delhi International (VIDP)

ImagineSim, after many requests, have updated New Delhi International airport with support for Prepar3d v2 and v3. The Prepar3d version should have significant performance enhancements, according to a post on their Facebook page. Judging by the screenshots, this airport indeed looks very beautiful and is a great destination for long range pilots heading for the capitol of India. The FSX version of VIDP is also getting a performance update. As of the moment of writing the update isn’t available yet, but it will be soon. People who have previously purchased this airport for FSX can download the Prepar3d version free of charge from the website.

ImagineSim KAUS Austin Bergstrom updated for Prepar3d V3

ImagineSim have just updated/re-released Austin Bergstrom (KAUS) airport for Prepar3d V3. This marks the fourth airport that has been re-released for Prepar3d V3 in their ‘premium-range’. Austin Bergstrom airport is available for $29,99. If you had already purchased the airport for FSX or Prepar3d V2 you can upgrade completely free of charge. Head over to their website for more information, to purchase it or to download a free demo.

ImagineSim announced a while back that they will go back to their previously released sceneries and update them to be compatible with Prepar3d V3.

ImagineSim LaGuardia (KLGA) Airport: The FSElite Review

DEVELOPERImagineSimPRICE$29.99
PUBLISHERImagineSim / FSSBUY FROMImagineSim / FlightSim Store

LaGuardia. Even saying it gives you a taste of how people from the New York/ tri-state area speak. LaGuardia, little sister to big ol’ JFK, was originally a 105 acre private flying strip named Glenn H. Curtiss Airport after the pioneer Long Island aviator. But over the decades and multiple name changes, the airport rose and expanded into the waterfront of both Flushing Bay and Bowery Bay. Most recently in 2015, a new plan was made to once again and expand the airport, adding new terminals and updating some of the older buildings on the airport. The project is set to be done by 2021, but why wait until then, as the results can now be seen with ImagineSim’s LaGuardia!

So, what do you get out of the box? (Or out of the .zip, should I say?) Well, you get all of LaGuardia airport, not what it looks like right now, but in the updated version of 2021 when the renovations that are currently on-going right now are complete. Once outside the airport, don’t expect much of the surrounding city, but rather just what’s in the airport property lines. As there’s other products out there for your NYC fix, this is good enough for me, as it helps to reduce the number of conflicting issues with scenery and airport. ImagineSim have added some special features to LaGuardia, including custom hand places trees around the airport, custom ground textures and markings, proper airport signage, interiors for all of the gates, and much, much more.
