767-400?

Recommended Posts

I realize that this plane isn't very popular, but it is a fairly modern plane. Nobody has made it, and it would be great if you guys at pmdg could make it. It is fairly requested by pilots at deltava.net and this is the one Boeing aircraft that has not been done in realism. All but the 77 have been done completely, and as you guys are working on the 777 already, perhaps you could create the 767-400. Just a request, please take it into consideration as this plane seems to have been shunned by the fs community.

To model the 764 is quite another thing. Just like modeling a B717 based on the MD-11.

Not another request thread... You should search for the 767 in the forums as this horse has been flogged to death. In other words, PMDG aren't doing a 767 or 757 in the near future as they have their hands full with the 777 (and its extension models), the DC6, the 747 V2.0, the 747-800, the secret Xplane project and there are reports (correct me on this last one) that they may take a look at the 787 but by the time PMDG reach that stage it would be at least 2 or three years away from right now

 

so no 767..

Hi Alex,

 

Although it would be nice to have an updated 767-400 a la PMDG but it is not going to happen I am afraid. PMDG and the creators of the best 767-300 in my opinion are good friends and they said long ago that they would never step on Level D's toes.

 

Until there is any significant news from another developer we will have to dream of an updated 764.

 

All the best.

It's raises a question mark when I always see people attacking others asking repeated questions or inquiring about something mentioned at page 894 at the manual .....what's wrong if some asking a question that was asked before ?? I don't get it ??

Absolutely agree, too many self appointed moderators in this forum. The question is polite and it can be answered politely.

 

In this case, apart from it being a 767, which conflicts with LevelD, it's a version with only 38 built and operated by just two airlines. Hard to imagine there being a large number of buyers for such an addon.

Couldn't agree with you any more Alaa and Kevin, only 38 you say? I never would have guessed so few were built. The 767 is one of my favorite's, I have read that Air Canada is due to retire their fleet of 767's but with the 787 hangup there is life for the 767 yet.

If someone is being abusive, just delete the relevant comment(s) and deal with the person responsible. Don't delete an entire topic that is relevant to PMDG. That would be a bit unnecessary.

Pointless request. After the 777, 747 V2 and DC-6, there next project is very likely not going to be just another Boeing. PMDG or not, the market is very demanding nowadays and people always want something new. They can't keep the community satisfied with just Boeings only. Probably, they will revive the Q-400 project then. After this, perhaps an Airbus, but something like a CRJ would be much more likely.

There were only 200 MD-11s built and that's in the PMDG fleet. Perhaps if they did make a version of the 767 sometime, it wouldn't be the 400 model, but I suppose anything's possible. When a company makes such in depth and realistic aircraft you can't fault people for asking all the time, "hey it would be cool if they made this...it would be neat if they made that." I look at it as Alex and others patiently waiting the 777 release, so they post these types of requests to stir up a little talk. Nothing more, nothing less.

Yes, they did produce the MD-11 (and JS-41) but that was because they wanted to improve their systems coding in a quick manner while providing an aircraft that had never been done in such great detail for FS before.

 

As for this topic, cool & calm conversation is always good.

The guy asked if a plane will be developed by PMDG. Wouldn't a short "I don't think so" with a little, neat link to a forum post discussing this would have been the expert thing to do?

 

You said it all.

Just a friendly reminder that it was never the Q-400 that was planned. I believe a standard -100 and -200?

I dunno, all I know is that they originally planned a Dash-8, not sure which one it was. I believe it got held up by other projects.

I heard that the delay was caused by infighting over the lawnmower for the WoodPidgeon project. Apparently, Dr. Evil wanted a clean model with battered textures, but RSR insisted on the model itself being battered, despite the increased polygon count. They haven't been seen together in public since.

Well, the DC-6 isn't a Boeing; its a Douglas product! Therefore, according to your argument, we can't keep expecting Boeing and Douglas/McD products... so we should expect an L1011, right? :P

As was mentioned, there was never word of Q400, I have seen 200 and 300 mentioned, but not officially. Either way it is not being worked on now.

I would disagree. PMDG have a way with Boeings, and people love Boeing airplanes and will buy them. IMHO it would be better, if there was another, skilled company that would build a similar relationship with Airbus (FSL?) and yet another who would specialize on other, smaller brands, like Bombardier, Embraer and so.

A guy can dream!

Well guys PMDG have been developing 3 aircraft concurrently so who knows what at least 2 of the next 3 products will be. One will be the DC3 or DC4 according to the Captain. So what the other two are, time will tell.

 

As for past products, the Captain said that they didn't sell that many MD11, more than McDonnell Douglas, but not a huge success from a sim POV. I love it BTW lol. So there is nothing wrog with suggestions. Market research will determine the products developed.

Alright guys,

I didn't realize that there were threads of this already. No need to flip out when something happens like this. Just close the thread and forget about it I suppose. My bad...

Yes PMDG make good Boeings but they made a good MD-11 too (OK it became a Boeing, but it isn't a Boeing concept or design, very different in fact). They also made an excellent Jetstream 41. If they were Boeing only we wouldn't have those two addons (or the Beech 1900s). Or the forthcoming DC-6B. It really doesn't make sense for a developer to specialise on one aircraft manufacturer.

 

Some people may well love Boeings. Others like airliners in general. I don't "love" one manufacturer over another.

Thanks for the post Paul, but I have received more updated information. Ryan decided to recently intervene concerning this issue. He was successful in getting Dr. V. and RSR to work out their differences and begin moving forward with the WoodPidgeon project again. Unfortunately one the outcomes of the discussion was that both Dr. V. and RSR agreed that Ryan was to blame for the entire incident in the first place. Ryan was immediately reprimanded and hasn't been heard from since. Big%20Grin.gif
