Prepar3d V3.4 Hotfix 2 Coming Soon

Adam Breed from Lockheed Martin has confirmed that another hotfix is in the works for Prepar3d and will be coming soon. In a conversation regarding increased VAS usage, he stated that in the new hotfix, they have “reworked an area of code to more aggressively purge data when traveling large distances”.

This continues to positive trend that Lockheed Martin are listening to customers and continuing to update their products to further enhance the quality. Of course, not always great news for people with products that depend on DLLs, but the support from those developers is usually pretty speedy.

Below is his full statement:

All,

In the upcoming v3.4 hotfix 2 we have reworked an area of code to more aggressively purge data when traveling large distances. We believe it might improve some of these VAS reports. Feel free to continue to report use cases and any specific reproduction steps.

Regards,
Adam

After we broke the news of Lockheed Martin announcing a ‘new version’ of their Prepar3d software, we’re sure that this simple hotfix probably isn’t what their Tweet was about.

We’re also hoping this hotfix will solve the issue for FSlabs and they will FINALLY release their A320 for Prepar3d!

Rumour: Lockheed Martin Software Update for Prepar3d Coming Soon?

https://www.prepar3d.com/It’s been over a year since Lockheed Martin released Prepar3d v3 for our home simulators, and just under 3 months since our last decimal update. With that in mind, Lockheed Martin posted some rather interesting news over on their Twitter.

As you can see from the Tweet below, Lockheed Martin have suggested that they will be launching a new ‘software update’ for their Prepar3d product. Alongside the text came a screenshot showing off Prepar3d over being displayed 24 screens! (I’m also sure it’s Taxi2Gate’s KMCO)

The most interesting part of the tweet is when Lockheed Martin talk about “a whole new world.” Is this a reference to the rumoured upcoming 64-bit version? I’m hedging bets on a more incremental update to see us go from 3.4 to 3.5.

This is also backed up by FSLabs’ saying that they’re working with Lockheed Martin to fix a few issues in Prepar3d before being able to release their highly anticipated A320X.

Of course, this could just relate to their more commercial platform. Currently the link on their Tweet only heads back to their homepage (their SSL certificate is out of date at the time of writing, but the site is still safe to visit), so no further information is currently available.

We will keep an eye on it and let you know what we find out.

Prepar3D v3.4 Now Available!
