Which Platform
« on: September 23, 2017, 03:31:33 AM »
Hi Folks,

I will be starting my 737 build in October. I will be using components from Simworld, FBC, CP FLight and others for the hardware. For the software, I intend to go with Prosim. I understand that the 737 is still under development for P3D v4 although there are some workaround's to get it functional in v4.

I have licenses for both P3D v3.4 and P3D v4. Which of the 2 do you suggest I go with? I realize it is quite a subjective and open ended question. I will also have my desktop computer for other aircraft like PMDG, FSL, etc. Are there any major advantages visually and performance wise of v4 over v3 for a Home cockpit setup? Whichever version I install for the Home cockpit, needless to say, the other version will go to my desktop.

My dilemma is, go with the stable prosim for v3 now and stick with that and future updates or tinker with the v4 and prosim and bear with it till the stable v4 one is out?

I would appreciate if anyone here has some tips and advise for me.

Simple answer - what do you like to do? Tinker or fly?

Hahahaha Jim,

I think that's a good answer. After spending a bomb on the sim, FLY would be the answer :) v3 it is then. Will worry about v4 later.





Will Depart in...
