    gdavej replied to a thread Prepar3D v2.4 .vs. 2.5 in Prepar3D
    I updated from v2.4 to 2.5 a week ago. The reason... I bought the Milviz P-38L which didn't seem to work in P3Dv2.4 (their web page does specify v2.5, but I didn't look too closely at the specs before buying it). After installing v2.5, the Lightning worked great, so I'm glad I updated.

    Sorry, lousy word to use. Yes I did mean that the longitudinally rigged sails were fluttering back and forth. In all cases I had a tail wind, but I only noticed the fluttering when the Bounty had problems moving (ie when FSTramp and/or tacpack was enabled). I had thought that the cause of this flutter was the wind direction, but the frequency of this flutter was pretty high (less than once a second).

    It looks like FSTramp is contributing to the problems with the Bounty v3 and P3D v2.4. With both FSTramp and Tacpack disabled, the Bounty moves okay. With FSTramp enabled, the Bounty did briefly move, but then came to a halt (the previous time I tried this, it didn't move at all). I also noticed that some of the sails seemed to be oscillating with FSTramp enabled but tacplack disabled, the sails in question being all the longitudinally rigged sails. I didn't notice these problems with FSTramp and the beta v2 of the Bounty, although it is possible that I didn't let the ship run for long enough, only a couple of minutes.

    Just to add to the complications... I tried the beta v3 in P3D v2.4 with both tacpack and FSTramp. With the beta v2, the Bounty would move iff tacpack was disabled, and FSTramp seemed to have no impact. However, with the beta v3, the Bounty remains motionless whether tacpack is enabled or disabled. I haven't tested it yet with FSTramp disabled, but I'll do that tonight.
