And the scenery purchased in Aerosoft, will there be any problems? I do not know if it is the right place to ask the question, but the simulator is not only added airplanes, but also airports.

PBR is a new additional form of materials, which not replace the existing form of materials. Older Addons will work as before. New Addons which use the PBR technology will need 4.4 or higher and will NOT be compatible with P3D V4.3 or older.

That is for all addons using 3D Models, so aircrafts and sceneries.

Oliver is (of course) completely correct. At this moment we have seen no issues with scenery or in fact any other add-on. 

 

P3d V4.4 is not a simple update, adding small stuff. Like P3D 4.3 is a major step in adding new options. And PBR is a massive step towards the sim looking more like the high-end games we all know. While it is early days our first work on it with the A330 shows amazing new options without making it any slower (in fact using modern graphics cards it even seems faster).  The F-16 in P3D is a model we sold to them so it was very interesting for us to see Lockheed using that one to demonstrate PBR. And we got to say, they made our model look a LOT better!

I expect the A320 to get the new PBR and not another paid update please!

 

Have you read Mathijs' statement of yesterday?

As always our aircraft always uses the latest technology, so the A330 is fully build to take advantage of the new options. If we update the current models is not decided yet.

Of course, you would like that free of charge, but it is at least 2 months of work and that has to be paid somehow. At this moment our plans are to make sure to have all new products using all options and then see if we can work backward.

I'd happily pay for PBR updates on older aircraft as I know there is lots of work involved in updating the textures and making them look just right and last I checked most people like to get paid to work ... hopefully I'm not alone in wanting to support P3D V4.4 development efforts with my wallet, I suspect there are many other customers willing to pay for PBR updates.  

 

Big thank you for taking PBR into consideration for your new product releases also ... very much appreciated.

 

Cheers, Rob.

Will I now see difference in visuals/ Metallic looking ... Or do the planes need an upgrade before working with PBR?

The existing models do not support PBR. So no, you won't see any difference at the moment.

Hey Guys,

Just a quick question regarding the upgrade to 4.4. I've not post on here before. I am wondering i am currently on V 4.2, didn't upgrade to 4.3 client as i was not able to. I am wondering as i

really want the Aerosoft A320 family, upgrading the client directly to 4.4 from 4.2, would the Aerosoft busses work correctly? 

Hope i've put my question across correctly.

 

Thanks for your time,

Zain

I just updated from 4.3 to 4.4 and at the moment I had no problems, updating only Client, Content and scenery, I loaded an A320 in a scenery (LEBL) and without problems, I have not flown, tomorrow, I updated the ActiveSky to the BETA version for 4.4 and no problem , maybe tomorrow when I perform a flight or not, I'll see.

So guys, when you do not make a fresh install. but update only (e.g. client update like I did), make sure that you follow 100% the instructions and recommendations LM gives you.
