What does P3D have that FSX doesn't?

P3D. You guessed it: bathymetry! So what is bathymetry? We'll basically, bathymetry allows depth to the water in P3D which means you can use a submarine to cruise around in, or like in the picture above, you can see your partially submerged floates on the upcoming Twotter Floates variant. Here are the latest shots!

I don't understand developers support FSX more that P3D, because P3D is the future FSX and when P3D hit 64-bit version all the developers can go crazy with their products.

P3D ist based on the Microsofts ESP engine (same as FSX), so I am afraid, there will never be a real 64 Bit version without a complete reengineering. And if they doing that someday, I am sure it will be a complete new FS that didnt have anything todo with the old engine anymore, which makes it incompatible, either. And, by the way, why should they doing that ? I cannot see any market requirements that will justifies a multi-million dollar investment which is necessary to realize a project with this dimensions.

Have you read the Prepar3d EULA's? the guys at lockeed martin have no real interest in making a simulator for people that just want to have fun, it's just ridiculous, that's why i understand the developers...My 2 cents.

This crossed my mind recently whilst reading about some current developers not creating cross-platform addons.

I think it's simply because the majority of the market is still very much an FSX user-base, so it's just where the product demand (and ultimately the money) is. Once LH releases the 64-bit version and the Xplane base broadens then it's only natural that developers will put their resources into these platforms.

Show off. :) seriously love that. Perhaps in my future I'll hop over. But for now this FSXer is staying put

A 64-bit app would be a real deal. I honestly believe most of virtual pilots don't care about bathymetry...

Only issue with P3D's bathymetry is it is a FPS hog!!!

Although it is a pity P3D's bathymetry is an FPS hog!!!
