Will be keeping an eye on this. Thank you. Nice to see one of these finally coming to FSX let along P3Dv2. I was kinda worried at first this would be for XP10 only.

Why has this topic gone to 'bargain hunters' forum?

The 717 is still in production.  So no, it's not the one on simmarket.

 

We did the model and the paint with some fixes to that (paint and model) done by TDFi. 

 

We will also be assisting with the codebase but, that said, the majority of the project is now in TDFi's hands.  They're running the project as well...  and that means, we can't say anything more than this.

 

Thanks

Glad to hear that it isn't the one on Simmarket. The Simmarket version looks really dated.

Definitely a bargain given it isn't out yet. So I guess it's practically free!

Thank you for your question. Announcement of new products that have been released/new offerings are guidelines for posting in the Bargain Hunter's Shack:

 

This forum is provided for users who run into good deals to post details and share with their fellow community members. Sales, special offers, new offerings, etc., can all be posted here. Commercial members can also post their product special sales, discounted products, etc. Before posting, read the rules pinned to the top of the forum.

 

Initially it appeared to be a new offering but I see it is still in production.  I will move the topic back to the FSX Forum.  As soon as comments indicate it has been released, it will be moved back to the Bargain Hunter's Shack.  Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

 

Best regards,

Considering that TDFI is essential a young man, maybe even a teenager still considering how his photo and Facebook page appear, it will be interesting to see how well he can code Complex systems with his lack of experience. Some devs have been at it for years and struggle to get it right, so it will be interesting to see how this pans out.

I'm kind of skeptical of this.  When I look at the gobsmacking complexity of the PMDG md-11, I think someone developing a 717 at the 'full systems' level is up against some really extraordinary challenges if they really want to do things well.  It certainly looks awesome, though.   How long has it been in development already?

I can't (and won't) answer questions about how long or when or what have you... But, on the subject of age, I would be (in your shoes) hesitant to make any assumptions about the quality of the product... Mostly because, although the guys (more than one) on the team are very young and possibly inexperienced in the real world, they're still genius level coders who have been simmers since they were little kids. 

 

As an example, one of our lead coders, Jon aka Narotokun) is not even 21 yet and he's a phenomenal coder.  Really. 

 

Ageism goes both ways I guess..

 

We're in the project as well and will be offering our technical savvy as well as or experience so... I wouldn't worry...  besides, it's not like they've asked for any money... yet.  :)

My friend Nick Collett flies one in reality and tells me the Simmarket version is way off.

Why would a new release be considered suitable for the 'bargain hunters' forum? Makes no sense unless a sale is on. All this will do is bury the news away from the main fsx forum where such things belong.

 

My second issue here Jim is that lately there is far too much haphazard and sloppy moderation going on in these forums. I say this as a long time user of avsim. Moderation is required, I'm fully aware of that but somebody has decided to let loose with click first and ask questions later and it's getting out of hand.

I don't see what the big deal is--He moved the thread erroneously, but then he moved it back.

I can safely say that Collin Biedenkapp made a considerable impact on my programming skills. He is better than me in so many ways.

 

Btw KC I turned 21 just over 7 months ago :smile:

Because this type of thing is happening more and more often over the last while.

^Totally agree....

 

Heck I got a warning for saying something commonplace as a funny gesture/sarcasm.

 

Oh well maybe people just have hard days - no problem...

 

The more threads get moved the less people come to to this forum - the amount of views in the sub forums are significantly less than here.
