Prepar3D V3

Prepar3D V3 comes in a zip file sized at 9.816 GB (9.8GB). Like all Prepar3D installers, the usual run and activate. Looking at the pictures you can tell, VAS usage is better in V3, by a lot. The first picture is running Prepar3D v2, after a clean install and config with no tweaks, only running REX 4. The second picture shows Prepar3D v3 running with a clean config and no tweaks, but with addons such as REX 4, ORBX Global etc. With Prepar3D you also see a brand new design introduced. Featuring new fonts, new startup screens + a new icon on your desktop which looks great! Not to mention a huge changelog with all previous bugs fixed and introducing a new avatar feature, which enables a walk around feature. If you want the full changelog, refer to the bottom of the post.

As you are aware, Prepar3D requires very little to no tweaking, and with V3 it stays the same. Although you will have more to handle as you get a new tweaking tool, so you can play with the HDR lighting system. Other than that, play with your sliders and don’t be afraid to go higher as VAS has been a non-issue with v3. Once that’s all done you good to go!

We will continue to analyze Prepar3D + provide you more information as it rolls in! For now, enjoy!
