Holy Cow! P3D V 3.3 Is Out!

The updates just keep coming. Here’s what Lockheed Martin has to say:

Prepar3D v3.3 is available now!

The Prepar3D v3.3 update brings several new features and numerous platform, rendering, SimDirector, SDK, and multiplayer updates – including improved rendering performance, enhanced stability and usability, an improved add-on installation process for developers, and numerous other bug fixes and improvements.

This new release welcomes the reintroduction of Multichannel. Professional Plus licenses now have the ability to utilize the new and improved Multichannel capability to configure multiple PCs to run Prepar3D concurrently, increasing performance on multi-screen and dome setups. This groundbreaking update further expands the immersion Prepar3D can provide and unleashes the ability to use multiple machines to create a high performing immersive training setup.

Additionally, add-on integration has been simplified for developers while also offering additional features for users, including the ability to enable and disable add-ons from within the application. Multiple monitor setups can be configured quickly using the new View Group Management window which also offers new advanced display settings including specific post processes per display that can be set up at any time. Support for Scalable Display Technologies Easy Blend™ is also included enabling multiple projected images to blend together on curved or flat surfaces. Several new usability features have also been added to SimDirector, including auto-save capability, more precise controls, and better visual cues when manipulating objects.

The Prepar3D v3.3 update is available now and can be downloaded from your Downloads page. If you currently own a valid Prepar3D v3 license, there is no charge to update to Prepar3D v3.3.

Prepar3D offers separate updates for the Client, Content, and Scenery. This will make updating faster and easier than ever before. Please be sure to read the Prepar3D v3 Download and Installation Directions for more details on how to quickly update to the v3.3 release. There is no update to the Scenery installer from v3.2.3.16769, so it is strongly recommended that those updating only download and install the Client and Content for this release.

The Lockheed Martin Prepar3D team loves hearing about your experiences with Prepar3D at our Forums. The forums also give us an opportunity to listen to your feedback as we continue Prepar3D development. We’ve partnered with our forum users and with several featured developers to continue to bring added features, enhancements, and optimizations all while bringing additional backwards compatibility, bug fixes, and stability to Prepar3D v3.3.
