• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

It's been around for several years now. I got a chance to "fly" in one of them at Oshosh Air Venture last year. It's neat, but at ~$60,000+ just a bit on the expensive side for me! :D

I met with the owners several years ago at an ESP Developer's Conference in Orlando, Florida.

Actually, I suspect they will be switching to Prepar3D in the not too distant future, if they haven't already.

Especially since I finally fixed the multi-mon full-screen loaded-flight window placement bugs :->

The 60 grand version is with the motion platform thought right, I mean, you can get the open top stationary version for just 25 to 30 grand :->

They are certainly working with Prepar3D.

Are you sure they are working with Prepare 3d?

Could I install an scenery made with the FSX SDK on an ESP or Prepare3D Platform?

Regards.

You could do that irrespective of the base platform used.
At the moment, FSX ~= ESP ~= Prepar3D

The main issues you are going to have is that the scenery addons installer likely won't recognize an installed Prepar3d sim, so won't know to install into it (if it has a browse for folder sort of option, that might work). The other issue is if the scenery is licensed for commercial use.

But, if you can get the scenery into Prepar3d, then it should work just fine :->

Tim, just as a matter of habit now, I configure my installers to work with FSX, ESP or Prepar3D. The user selects which and the installer will check the Registry for the correct path information...

...if all else fails, there's always the "Browse" button... ;)

An option to work with Prepar3D is now appearing in my utilities/ Each time I update one I add that as a sim option :)

i work for a flight school and we have a TD and an FMX
i know for a fact they dont use Prepare3d or ESP for that matter
what they are using is FSX on both units which by the way is not what they told us when we bought the things:mad:

Holy imaginary anger Batman!

FSX~ESP~Prepar3D as far as feature/functionality is concerned*. If they have FSX on the machine, I'm willing to bet there's a 100% valid reason for that. In fact, based on Beatle's post in this thread above:

Especially since I finally fixed the multi-mon full-screen loaded-flight window placement bugs :->

I'm willing to bet that most definitely might have something to do with it.

*until new features were added to Prepar3D by L/M.

(cough) probably well outside the FSX conditions of use (y'know that box that flashes up when you install stuff!)

Unless, of course, it's by agreement... which no one here can say one way or the other and thus should probably not make claims otherwise.

This is an admin note to remind y'all that it is generally not good to engage in speculation. Also if you believe a particular supplier has not met the 'fit for purpose' or other standard then the most appropriate way is to take it up with the supplier ;)
