P3Dv3 - legacy aircraft and PTA

Postby Adam_NZ » Fri May 19, 2017 10:27 pm

I'm a long-time P3D user (and an even longer FS9, FSX user <!>). Screenshots are my passion!

P3D has been a very welcome upgrade for me, but not entirely without its "gotchas" - notably "popcorn" clouds and "oily/black" water. However - Yuri's PTA papers overs these cracks and P3D can excel in doing what it does best in visuals: lighting and shadows!

Surprisingly, many of my ancient freeware aircraft (eg. the Stirling) can be persuaded to work in P3D with little or no tweaking. The following are just random images - but all using P3Dv3 and PTA:

Decent water *is* possible in P3D!:

P3D atmospherics are varied and can be quite stunning.

Finally: simple, but sublime!
