747-8i - first impressions

8 posts in this topic

Hi PMDG!Apologies for the generic form of address, but I just wanted to thank everyone involved for a remarkable upgrade to my enjoyment of your 747 product, which still remains my favourite in spite of the individual and different pleasures of the MD11 and J41. Having installed the 8i expansion (including half a dozen additional liveries which will take some time to explore, but which all look stunning from a brief inspection) and got her into the air and safely back to London Heathrow, I have to say that the thing which I noticed most of all was probably the sound, which is remarkable. Next up, of course, the wing flex

My first impressions are also great! One question - I receive some cautions as FSX loads - "Multiple objects with the same name: PMDG 747 8i PMDG House Livery - Simobjects\Airplanes\PMDG747-400" and similar message for the PMDG747-400F. Is this to be expected or has something gone "south" in the download? Thanks! Doug Craven

Thanks Rob, you were "right on" in your analysis. I somehow had two identical entries for the 747-8i (both freight & passenger).Two things caught my attention very quickly with this addition:(1) the amount of wing flex takes my breath away!(2) watching the antimated pilots...cute!Doug Craven

You guys do know there's a 747-8 subforum, don't you?I'm not sure an updated external model and a few new sounds are worth $25. I'll keep chugging along with the MD11 and the 744X - I'm far from a master on those as it is.-Mike
