Good Morning. I wanted to know if vatsim works with Prepar3D but my biggest question is if the airports in Prepar3D are updated in terms of new runways and taxiways from FSX:SE. 




P3d is built upon the esp version of fsx. The last version saw a massive update to the world in terms of airports but they are still like fsx building style.

You just need vpilot and run the simconnect files that are installed alongside p3d.

Mike, in your version of Prepar3D, if you don't see runways and taxiways matching the diagrams, there are thousands of free updates you can download for them. (There are also several payware airports you can purchase that will not just improve accuracy but also make them look a lot better.)

The largest repository of free airport updates for P3D I know about is here: https://library.avsim.net/. Normally, when I'm planning a flight to a major airport and/or with ATC, I'll look at whether I already have up-to-date scenery. If I don't, I check the AVSIM library and install anything I can find prior to flying. Or, if I want to spend some money, I'll Google around for updates from companies like Orbx, FlyTampa, LatinVFR, FlightBeam, etc.
