Here is a quote from Prepar3D forum by L-M employee John Nichol, from the forum over at Prepar3d:
Regarding Prepar3D - as far as we know (and I haven't seen anything to suggest otherwise) - P3D isn't a consumer product. The ESP license they're using allows for use in the professional/training markets. Unless they find a way to convert that license into a consumer one and produce a low cost version (relative to the professional one) I'm not sure I see how this is a viable platform for a developer like us just yet.
"Prepar3D is a simulation framework, which means that it should be able to be used to develop any type of virtual interactive simulation environment, and used by anyone to train within that environment. Off-the-shelf of course, it is a system ready to go for training. Obviously it is best for flight training applications right now, but we will hope to see it being employed in other domains."Just Flight have already added their Comet to it, (which incidently was not very realistic). There didn't seem to be any problem with that. Both ORBX and REX also are also adapting their products for it. Again, quotes from Prepar3D:
"Orbx does offer content for Prepar3D, and I believe they offer a free demo area as well. All purchasing and licensing of Orbx content would go through Orbx." - Bhiolis (http://www.prepar3d....viewtopic&t=571)Again from John Nichol of Lockheed-Martin on the same website:
"I can tell you that REX are working on a Prepar3D version of their excellent add-on! FSUIPC should work as Pete Dowson has built in support for P3D."
