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.
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 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.
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.
UUEE Moscow Sheremetyevo, EPWA Warsaw and EETN Tallinn have all received an update to be compatible with P3DV4.
Miami V3 is now compatible.
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.
Last but not least on our list is BlackBox. These guys have updated both their Aviation Bulldog & Cessna L19 aircraft for P3DV4 for free.
