With the 747-400 project taking most their time and an MD-11 project still under development; I doubt that we'll see a 737NG update this year, but don't quote me on it...

In the initial fase of the 737 developement they promised 3 products. :) For example the IRS, HGS, BBJ and so on..I think it's a VERY nice product. But I was wondering if we get a 3rd product? :)-Freddie

I think there were talks, my impression was that PMDG wanted to update the NG so that the VC was like the B744s and other features could be added...But that is only my impression, that they wanted to, but again when?PMDG correct me if I am wrong. :-)Boaz...

Its been a while since PMDG has spoken about this, but the last comment I recal was that they would evaluate the feasibility of going forward with "phase 3" of the NG only after The Queen's release. I suspect that also means waiting until after all the dust settles and it becomes clear whether or not any service packs will be required.Andrew

Hi,To bring the 737NG to the standards of the 744, programming from scratch will be required. It's not done with a patch or simple upgrade.Walter

Hello :-wave,I think it would be cool if PMDG could fix the speedbrake armed/deployed light or logic :).Can someone confirm that on the 737NG 'Speedbrake Deployed' lights up, when in level flight and you of course have the speedbrakes deployed, i think the 767 does this?I can live without an IRS on the 737, starting from Cold & Dark and making some hops around Europe, takes enough time on my side of the computer ;).Not sure how many Wedgetail fans are outthere, but it would be awesome if PMDG would put their eyes on the maybe not so optimal 737NG code and could at least do the BBJ variants with the additional tank displays when pressing on 'C' for the clock and of course accurate flight dynamics (I don't know which other important features the BBJs have, pardon!).I assume asking for the new MCP layout and models without eyebrows is a little too much and not neccessary :).Christianhttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v232/chrismo/sigsky.jpgVacation: wasted time between 2 flights!

Promised might not be the right word, but it was advertised on their website for the BBJ model.And to the original poster, how rude can you be???

I'm very very sorry. I'm not good to compress myself. I was just wondering about the 3rd product :)

As mentioned earlier, to bring the 737NG up to the 744 standards would require an entire rewrite of the product. PMDG has not yet said anything about doing this (or never doing it).I've voiced the opinion several times that I feel I got my money's worth (and more!) from the 737, and that I would pay, without hesitation, full price for another version (737NG-2006?) rewritten to the 744 standard or better.If many of you feel the same way, by all means let PMDG know - one of the first steps in getting a developer to develop the product you want is to assure them there will be a market for it.Best wishes,

WellMy 2 cents, I am extremely happy with the PMDG 737NG, it was when released a great step forward in flightsim aircraft. I can say unequivicably, I will continue to buy these aircraft. Quality counts, and even if they don't upgrade the 73NG's I'll continue to fly them regularly. I have a good number of different aircraft I use and these are among the highest quality around.Karl

Obviously I'd like a free upgrade, who wouldn't, but have no choice but to agree the existing 737 is very full value for money.However, it will be interesting to see how frame rates, VC refresh rates, smoothness etc compare between the new 744 and the "old" 737.To be honest I love complicated, accurate, difficult, aircraft. However, the 737 has given me more than enough to be going on with. Rather than a few additional but quite esoteric features, I'd be more willing to pay for any new methods which may be contained within the 744 which make it less demanding to run.Although I get very acceptable results from the 737, I could always do with a few more FPS or to turn those weather and scenery sliders up a bit!Mike
