Hopefully we will also see new interior and exterior lighting that is fully customizable and for P3Dv4 the use of dynamic lighting will also be a big plus. TDFI is offering a product for VC rain and aircraft lighting effects to other developers. It's called Trueglass and Truelight. Perhaps CS can look into this?

Dear CaptainSim, please Add the 727 in your P3Dv4 list.
It is such a legend. Pity not to have it any more in P3Dv4.

The title of this thread is "Prepar3d 4 progress". So my first question TO THE DEVS is "where is the progress?".  If you feel we have no right to ask that's fine, but if so then what is the purpose of the thread you started?, is it a feature request thread for software that doesn't exist? Are you guys on extended vacation?

The 727 will be upgrade to P3Dv4, you just have to wait until it's done. Wink

Just my 2 cents...

I had no idea how complex all this re-coding was until I got involved.

The level of detail in CS planes takes time.

And still no reported progress. We are now on the 2nd version of the p3d4 x64 platform. Certain other developers admitted to beginning their projects very late and yet they've all completed them, save one particular developer that at the very least provides timely updates to their customers.  I have 3 CS titles. I'm glad I did not purchase more. With all respect to Cptn. Lou, I certainly will not spend anyone's 2 cents on another CS title, even less my own.

Im surprised that the 757/67 are such low priority in converting. I alluded to it before that CS has a massive opportunity in converting/updating the 57/67 to V4. Those 2 aircraft are in big demand as they are still flown today and many VAs have them in their lineup. While those legacy classic airliners are nice, they are real niche and could be captured anytime since no one is doing them and they rarely flown real world today. But to get ahead of these other mystery ultra secret 757s and perhaps 767 from the other dev, Im guessing we wont see them anytime soon.  Therefore  a release by captain sim on these ones would do very well assuming the bugs are kept to a minimum.  would be an instabuy to upgrade my 767. I currently have to go over to XPX11 to fly it.
Just my thoughts.

Agree!  I miss flying the 767 in V4 - it is my favorite aircraft.  Disappointing to not see it on the list.  Truly, my favorite is the 767-400, but it's super niche and nobody would probably release it.  Maybe someday, but it can't come soon enough.

Same here, very surprised. It's the largest gap in the FS community and nobody seems to pick them up. Proper 757 and 767 models for V4 would surely be top sellers.

I don't understand the 777.

The 727 and 707 are getting a new version and that's very good. Thank you for that.

I thought I read something a while back that hinted that CS were redoing the 757 and 767 products.  I would imagine that P3Dv4 compatibility would probably be on the feature list, if that were the case.  I took the OP above in the context of existing product releases that will be converted for P3Dv4, with few or no other changes such as new features.

As far as I know, the list only shows the next 4 products (which Captain Sim can change at any time, as they have already done so since the list first appeared) on the list for updating for P3Dv4, so I expect that all of Captain Sim's products are on the list, but the 757/767, and all the others not listed, are not in the top 4.
