Secret Project #1: This one is a classic!

Recommended Posts

While I am really, really looking forward to the DC-6, my guess is that this project is not currently PMDG's top priority. I think the 777 is getting closer and PMDG's major effort is focused on that release.

 

I hope PMDG have recruited some type rated DC-6 pilots for their testing. I would think there is a limited pool of those folks around but I am encouraged that they are looking to get the best possible feedback for the DC-6.

I agree with Jeff but I personally cannot wait for the 777/747v2 and DC-6... They are all on my wish-list. :) Maybe they will all come out same day (doubtful), but hey, who knows right? :)

Think of the support nightmare releasing 3 products at once! Pretty sure they wont do that :D

My personal opinion is that you guys should include PMDG tissues, not PMDG pretzels, because my eyes seem to well up with joyfull tears at these annoucements. We in the community have many things to be thankful for.

 

Warm Regards,

This looks amazing. Highly looking forward to this one. Hope it comes with a very interactive and comprehensive Check List kneeboard.

Where she was when you asked the same question on the top of this page: still in development.

 

PMDG doesn't do timeframes.

Of course you have the right to. But PMDG will not answer. That's just how they roll. There will be new information some day, but strictly on their own schedule. Nagging them about it will not change that.

You have little to fear, I believe Mr. Randazzo was type checked on the DC-6. At the very least he was type checked on its trim wheel anyway...

I'm pretty certain that they are working on a stable periodic release schedule, right now the market is ripe for another PMDG addon.

 

2012 is turning out to be a great year for complex FSX airliner addons, with Qwings' 146, Coolsky's DC-9, Milviz's 737, FSLabs' A320 and Majestic's Q400. all we're missing is something from PMDG.

Three of those five are still WIP, so don't count those chickens yet. Regardless, the future appears bright for the next little while.

Gday

I just wish PMDG would have kept it a secret, in fact i wish they would have kept the 777, 747v2 a secret as well, and only reveal them when they are ready for release.

Good afternoon,

 

I'd like to know if the developing of the DC6 is stopped temporarily, because I understand it is a project the people of PMDG are working on in quiet periods.

I can imagine there is no " quiet " period now working on the triple 7.

Is it possible that anyone of PMDG can tell something about the development? (I know they will not give a release date, I'm not asking for it :P )

 

Thanks for responding.

 

Regards,

 

Eric
