PMDG's XPlane 10 Development Fact Thread [Updated 25NOV13]

Recommended Posts

..."in the next 60 days (estimated)"

 

It's no wonder they don't release dates usually. Throwing a date at the user base is like chucking red meat at a pack of ravenous wolves. 

 

It gets announced when it gets announced. Stop looking for the next great thing and enjoy what you currently have.

I Dont think its much of a case of "When" it will be released, more of "What" they will release.

 

I dont mind if a release date isnt set, more keen to see what it is as no legacy aircraft will be developed for this test. Common fellas, throw us some scraps here, even a screenshot would be nice :P

Some preview screenshots would be nice, though PMDG always "shows something which is done"

Looking forward to the first X-Plane product from PMDG :wub:

Meh. Waiting for news from PMDG is like waiting for the second coming. I'm also convinced that it's going to be the DC-6 so I've stopped caring. The IXEG 737 looks promising though. That should give me my Boeing fix.

yeah if it's the dc6 I will not buy it. For most we need a daily airplane which is complete and can perform ifr flights without the need to be 3 in the cockpit...

http://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?showtopic=79113&page=3 i guess flight factor might announce something pmdg will not like competing. but it is really high chance of dreamliner.

 

I'm suspecting it to be the 767. Ramzzess posted in the shout box after someone mentioned the 767 giving a big hint that would be their next plane. Nothing confirmed of course, but that is the favorite for the next plane Flight Factor will be doing. Whether that is the advanced model they are talking about or pro( or both) who knows. 

 

Also I for one would welcome the DC-6 if that is indeed the plane PMDG is developing for X-Plane.

The thing is, this advanced will be more in-depth than most other XP models

 

There was this model that I wanted to do and it’s all new and has a ton of things which were only introduced in the last decade, so not that much info – so, we decided to do an advanced model. We will slowly add functionality (mainly FMS stuff to it) to bring it to pro level.

767 does simply not qualify.

 

787 and 737 will be pro from start so.

Why that bug should change plans about releasing a new aircraft?

10.30 is still to go to final and possibly we could get even a 10.31 in a relatively short time, nobody but LM knows something about 10.35...

So FF revealed that they are doing the A350 as a advanced model. Nothing said about a possible B767 pro model. On facebook it was confirmed though, that they plan to release two aircraft this year, one adv and one pro. So we're still waiting for that announcement.

It could be that they are waiting for 10.3 to go final. It would make sense to aim the release based on 10.3 rather than 10.25, hence waiting for the final to sort out bugs. But if they haven't revealed even the project yet, they might still be some distance off. I think the 10.3rc1 is being uploaded to the severs right now, so we're getting close. But I don't know what the visibility has to do with releasing an aircraft.

Cool but has nothing to do with PMDG.

Well, seeing as PMDG busted their "within 60 days" estimate for an update I don't see a problem with discussing other aircraft. Especially seeing as Flight Factor are one of the few X-Plane developers that come close to PMDG levels of fidelity.

 

If PMDG actually gave us something to talk about, I'm sure we'd be discussing that instead!

I’m speculating here; but I think Robert in taking a well deserved vacation, remember after his medical procedure he was back in the saddle working on leasing the latest 777 updates.

 

I’m thinking we won’t hear any news until after this weekend (US) Labor Day Holiday, then again; Robert may give us some Labor Day Holiday news, either way; we all just have to be patient, once we lay eyes on XPX - PMDG master piece the wait will be well worth it….

 

I’m going to unplug from the machines this weekend (at lease try) and enjoy the last few days of summer before old man winter reveal his horrid present of the next 7 months…

So! If PMDG-XPX related news is released, while I’m unplugged; well! I’ll see it when I return to the “matrix”

Yeah... I'm gonna take a break and go do something productive. Think we're in for a long wait.
