  • Prepar3d

    What for do you need prepar3d. That was one question which I had in my mind since.... I could say now since 2010. That was the year when p3dv1 was published. That probably is a little bit too much.

    But let's say, since the year 2014, I wondered what this shiny new simulator would be good for. P3dv2 was the best version you could buy in that year.

    I own the Mega Airport Düsseldorf, on DVD (!). I know, I become old and older.. But this thing is good for fsx and, without that you have to say a word, also for p3dv1. The only thing which I have to telephone about with the support crew of Mega Airport Düsseldorf is,
    that is such a nice program. Where is the update for p3dv4?
    Without that I use my telephone, that p3dv1 program is running rather bad than good here on my machine. The three terminal buildings and the big arrival building do exist, also with v4.
    The Sky Train is missing with v4, and
    the so very brilliant ground textures are also not there where they are in fsx.

    But I have to compliment the Mega Airport Düsseldorf crew. Where else can you take a seven year old DVD from your shelf, and it works at once, on a platform which has only been invented
    three years later (2017).

    So, for a moment, I'll operate two simulator platforms, fsx and prepar3d . And I have learned, that this is rather harmless. Out there, there seem to be a few people who operate
    fs9, fsx, prepar3d and.. the new msfs 2020, all simultaneously.

    Back on topic. I am very very new in the prepar3d business, but if you ask me, what for do you need prepar3d, I have found at least one answer:

    This is the Rockwell Commander 114 propeller aircraft, p3dv4 in DirectX11 mode (normal mode).

    I must say, my machine (computer) is not fast enough for msfs 2020. But DirectX11 is feasible. And the fps in my screens are always top left ...
