V43

Lockheed Martin has just released Prepar3D v4.3. This update comes with a few new features and a number of fixes and enhancements to make your Prepar3D experience even better. For instance, you’ll probably be happy to know Lockheed Martin has worked on even more fixes regarding dynamic lighting, with clustering grouped dynamic lights and adding in more distance-based checks. Furthermore, there are a few more performance improvements to rendering the virtual cockpit, and a lot more features and enhancements to virtual reality. There are also some UI changes, including views for the scenery library and add-on list in the main menu.

One of the biggest updates to the content within Prepar3D v4 is the inclusion of the the C-130. Designed by Lockheed Martin, there are now six flyable models of the aircraft type you can choose from the vehicle menu. These include:

  • AC-130 ‘Spectre’
  • C-130H
  • C-130J
  • C-130J-30
  • HC-130
  • KC-130

As usual with Prepar3D updates, there is an option to download and install the update in four different parts: client (required), content (optional), scenery (optional) and SDK (optional). Make sure to read the installation instructions in order to install this update the quick way.
