FS2Crew has today released the 64Bit version of their Majestic Dash 8 Q400 crew simulation addon!
In a post to their Facebook page, they wrote: “FS2Crew for the Majestic Dash 8 P3D 4 (64 Bit) version released! Includes FREE global FO voice set, a 20 Euro value! 5 Euro coupon code: DASH64
64 Bit computing with P3D V4 and above is the future of flight simulation! Now you can fly your Majestic Dash 8 Q400 while harnessing the power of 64-bit computing with your trusty voice or button controlled First Officer and FA at your side!”
Discussion arose in the comments with many users expressing their annoyance at having to purchase the software again, FS2Crew justified the re-purchase by saying: “You need to remember P3D 64 bits will have a lifespan of probably 10 years. Unlike FSX, Lockheed Martin releases a new version of P3D every year. We will be supporting this product for probably 10 years.
We did FSX, FSX steam, P3D 1, 2 and 3 for free, but we can’t keep doing this stuff for free, especially since 64 bits requires new code. It’s too expensive. The cost works out to a few euros per year if you break it down over the product lifespan.”
