Instead of upgrading to P3D V3, I migrated over to FSX:SE, and with proper scenery management, VAS out of memory issues are not a problem any longer, plus I can enjoy once again my left behind FSX goodies.
Having said this, I do know many of my online friends do enjoy P3D very much. My issue is that there is a cost to it, and that cost is higher than I had anticipated.
I've heard that FSX:SE is better than the standard FSX too. I have the "boxed" version on my computer, but use it only for comparison.
I bought into Prepar3d V2.x to see if it was much better, and found it almost identical in most respects.
But there were a few areas where it was noticeable better.
With Prepar3d V3.x I found that there was enough of an improvement that I was willing to pay for it. Others didn't.
But P3d requires a better computer with a much better video card. Without that, I think that FSX:SE is the best solution for most people.
Back to the original posters question of SimDirector, my very brief reading makes it sound more like something for professional training, than casual use.
But that would be for him to decide.
