Favorite aircraft you want PMDG to make: Round 3

Favorite Aircraft  

237 members have voted

  1. 1. Which aircraft did you favor? The Boeing 787 Dreamliner or the Airbus A340

  2. 2. Which airliner did you favor? The Airbus A330 or the Airbus A380



Recommended Posts

For those interested, there is an airliner bracket where you select what aircraft you wish PMDG will make for FSX. This is currently in Round 3. The options are:

Boeing 787 vs Airbus A340

Airbus A330 vs Airbus A380

Too bad the 757 and the 767 isn't part of it from the beginning as the former is no longer supported by QW and the 767 by LevelD feels outdated. Not just that, I can't decide on the 787 or the A340, and the A330 or the A380.

This is my first topic I created by the way.

I have to agree with you on the 787 and 340. I really want a good one of both. It would be nice to see the 75 and 76 aswell I agree the Level-D is very outdated and the QW although still great is getting outdated too. I will say I would rather the 380 than the 330 though. The 380 would be out my hanger much more than a 330 would

Thanks. Also, I am starting to feel like liking the A380 jumbo jet more than the A330.

I finally made a decision. Although I like Boeing Aircraft, I decided to go with the Airbus A340. It is a great classic. For option 2, I picked the Airbus A380 over the A330.

From what I saw, less than 10% gone with the A340 (as of the time I typed this). Also, the A380 has around half of votes. The results are from: http://public.bracketeers.com/matchup.php?id=2964

 

UPDATE: Now, the A340 and the A380 are gaining more votes in terms of percentage. A340 is now at 20% starting from 7% and is increasing rapidly. The A380 is nearing 60% opposed to 50%

The A340 is almost dead whereas the 787 is brand new and will expand a lot. Considering how tight with Boeing PMDG is, I'd absolutely love to see the 787 done by them. The A380 will have to wait for NLS and the 330 will be made by FSLabs when the 320 is done, which shouldn't take too long.

If PMDG did the 787 I would be soooo happy.

 

I also agree that the A340 is dead (as with the 747) judging by carriers switching to 2-engined, more fuel-efficient models.

Why are there two of these topics by two different people floating around?

Also, PMDG said they would never make the A380.

I will now crawl out from under my internet rock and say something, as this seems to happen a lot.  A quick search of here, or using a new fangled thing like Google, will tell you that the 787, A380, and A330 are all currently being developed, or are planned to be by other companies.  They all look fairly decent in quality as well.  Although customers are what keep companies rolling, this isn't PMDG's first rodeo.  They know what is optimal to put out on the market.  Besides, we already have multiple excellent aircraft out from PMDG, so we should enjoy those while PMDG makes their educated and executive business decisions B) 

 

Now, to slowing return to the deep, dark depths of the internet :ph34r: 

 

Cheers

Doesn't mean they won't make it.

I agree with you with the 787 part (I didn't pick the 787 despite wanting it in PMDG form) as it is developed by Quality Wings. However, from what I know, the A380 and the A330 was developed by Wilco but it didn't stop Aerosoft from developing an A320/A321 Extended (that was developed by Wilco) or even PMDG from making a 777 (also made by Wilco).

These products were old, outdated, and not exactly up to par.  If the new ones coming up will be up to par, then why try and make something on top of something else that was made to make another thing better.  Thing

Weather Radar? P3D?

 

They constantly said they wouldn't do weather radar as long as it's implementation wasn't realistic.

Obviously that changed with ASN.

They have a topic stickied on P3D stating they're looking at options. They never said they would never do P3D.

 

But as for the 757/767/A380/business jets/An-225/other random requests, they have clearly stated their position.

 

I don't know why you guys dislike these posts. I'm just relaying the information. I didn't come up with the decisions.

I just want them to finish what they are working on now, especially 747v2 :smile:.

 

Any new project probably wouldn't release until after 2020 anyway.

I never understand why people say stuff like this so calmly while hoping and praying inside that a new product will be released soon.

 

Its that provocative/teasing mentality we have around their forums that's the exact reason why they will release it after 2020.

 

Stating these stuff won't make PMDG employ 50 new members to speed up production, just let it be  ^_^

I won't go into the "why" as it is obvious, but I am fairly certain that PMDG have completely ruled out doing anything from Airbus.

Surely the next logical step for PMDG (after the huge projects of moving stuff into P3D and X-Plane and finishing 744v2) is the E-Jets?

I'm not sure the A380 has been explicitly ruled out, or any Airbus for that matter. I know people assume PMDG will not do an Airbus but I don't think that assumption stands up to logic. They announced a whole family of them at one point, and just because a company has an agreement with Boeing does not mean they can't also have an agreement with Airbus. Personally, I don't really mind whether PMDG ever makes an A380 or not, as long as someone makes one of at least QW depth I'll be happy. The NLS A380 may or may not ever make it to market and yet the A380 is one of the most requested airliner addons on various forums. Sadly, every FSX addon developer thinks they need to produce a 737 of one form or another. QW is the latest in a long line to start one. So much duplication.

 

I'm with you on the dislike/disagree ratings. Utterly pointless.

767 is the only bad looking plane which boeing ever made. she has no caracteristic, carismatic spec. just a fat tube with wings, so  a330 is.
