Lockheed Martin have just released P3D v4.1, the first major update that has come to the platform since it’s release. This comes earlier than originally proposed and is a pleasant suprise. It is likely that we will see some more addons rolling out now that this update has released. Be aware that some addons may not work at this stage.
If you wish to view the changelog we have left it below, however here is a link to the official post from Lockheed Martin.
In order to upgrade you only need to update the Client to get the 4.1 update. It’s optional to update Content, Scenery and SDK. To update you have to first uninstall the Prepar3D 4.0 Client via Programs and Features in Windows Control Panel. By installing this product it will reactivate and an internet connection must be used, done automatically with connection.

By looking at the change log you can see that dynamic lighting hasn’t been modified. VC rain is seen on default planes or vehicles as P3D calls it. Another new feature is that 4K virtual cockpit support is now available for users with 4K screens.
