Next, with respect to Prepar3D version 4.4, Robert explains, “You should have no issues with forward compatibility in any PMDG product currently working in Prepar3D v4.3.” Moreover, the developer is currently in the process of applying PBR materials to existing products, however, this process will take some time. There is currently no estimated release timeline and the updates will be released on an “as ready” basis. At the moment, PMDG is particularly busy with NG3 development as well as some major updates for the 747 series.
As a point of warning, once each product is PBR enabled, the “required version” will shift to Prepar3D version 4.4. Those who prefer to remain with previous versions of Prepar3D V4 will no longer receive forward looking updates.
Lastly, the PMDG forum is moving from Avsim to a new location. More information will be available shortly.
