We have released our first Prepar3d V4 package. This package has been designed for Prepar3D V4 using the Prepar3D V4 SDK!
As we have mentioned in our earlier posts, we will from here on concentrate in bringing your Prepar3D V4 specific scenery that has been developed using the Prepar3D V4 SDK. To do this, we are going to have to discontinue our Prepr3D V3 line of scenery. Developing for both Prepar3D V3 and V4 at the same time is going to be too time consuming.
We must admit that re-compiling the Terrain Mesh files using the Prepar3D V4 SDK has led to an increase in frame rate! Prepar3D V4 runs smoother with files designed for it than with installers that have just been adjusted to work!
Naturally recompiling the scenery and adjusting the files to Prepar3D V4 will take much more time than just updating the installer and we can therefore not release these updates for free as we would have liked to do from the start.
What we can do is to offer those of you who already have the older version a half price discount on upgrading. If you own our older Africa Terrain Mesh V1.4 and you would like to have the new version for Prepar3D V4, then please email us and we will gladly issue you with an upgrade discount coupon to use.
For FSX and FSX-SE users, we have re-designed the installer and the box artwork, but the files are still the same as they were before. No updates for you, sorry! Your account downloads will show a V1.5 now, instead of the older V1.4.x. As we have said, there is no difference in the files, so downloading it again is not needed unless you want to keep the new version for backup purposes.
We will be splitting our scenery products from here on into FSX/FSX-SE versions and Prepar3D versions. You will notice the two different sets of box art on our website as well as that our website shop section now contains separate sections for FSX and Prepar3D. In the long run, we will be discontinuing the FSX/FSX-SE version, but the Prepar3D version will continue to exist.
