Recommended Posts

Hi PMDG team, is there any chance you release the SP1c today?

 

Thanks in advance.

Capt RSR statement on Sep 12th:

 

 

 

I do not suspect the SP1c testing will take very long- and perhaps we will have this version into your hands before the 26th.  (Possibly by next friday?  This is our goal, but I am leaving some slack room in the schedule...  stay tuned...)

 

Looking at the current fact, I'm assuming that there's still a blocker or problem in SP1c testing.

 

Regards,

Tri Nugroho

Since when does an answer from a tester constitute an answer from the team?

I'm guessing he is on the test team for SP1c and therefore knows it wil not be releasing on the date it was set for release. I'm fine with being told upfront by Kyle that it won't be releasing, but I would still like to hear from PMDG if missing the date for release is just for minor touch-ups, and when we can expect SP1c. I hope we are not in for another month of waiting around without any updates...

They're always quite like rock... Still waitting for them to release SP1c, then I can buy this bird.. While it's still buggy, I don't want to do it, because then I have to wait another 1 year..

I have recently stopped browsing this forum because of the many "problems" and "bugs" and "this plane is not flyable" as well as "I think I will wait for the new update before purchasing" and "for now, the 777 will stay in my hangar until they fix this issue" posts.

I for one have never had any issues with the 777 since I purchased the RTM version in early 2014. The only problem I ever encountered was the cold and dark panel state, which I easily fixed by making my own.

 

So in conclusion, I don't mind when SP1c is released because I didn't have any issues in SP1 or SP1b anyway.

And how do you know it still buggy if you havnt  even tried it, and I'am sure that all pay ware Aircraft will have some sort of issues that are still waiting  to be fixed if it  can at all

 

 

Wait another year don't know where you got this information from, unless you actual work for pmdg and do know the release date.

It doesn't, but it was also a pretty easy question for me to answer (albeit not at an official level).  I figured an unofficial answer was a lot better than no answer at all.

Kyles shortest Post ... haven't thought this would be possible  :P;)

 

haha - I'm always up for surprising people...

Hi all i've been contacting pmdg support there's been no mention about sp1c. My answere is no ?

 

There's no harm in contacting them, but I wouldn't expect them to give you much more than:

"There will be an official post in the forum when an official date is set.  PMDG does not give release dates."

That's great for you, unfortunately for me and numerous others the issues which SP1c is supposed to fix are impairing enough that flying the plane is a bit frustrating. I have yet to enjoyably fly the 777 due to the various bugs (which are slowly being eliminated, slowly).

 

Do these bugs make the plane unflyable? Not at all. But they do make the experience frustrating enough (at least for me) that I haven't bothered in a long time.

What is so frustrating that you haven't bothered to fly it in a really long time?  Honest question.

Prior to SP1 it was the trim issues that made approaches particularly frustrating, but I tolerted that issue for awhile, but eventually decided to wait on SP1. SP1 fixed that issue but introduced the simrate and time compression issue.

 

Unfortunately, flying legs at up to 4x simrate is not ideal nor really doable for me. Often when I get a chance to fly I usually have only a couple of hours. So to perform flights without being able to simulate at 8x or 16x to me is frustrating. My flying of the 777 post SP1 has been all circuit flying. I've abandoned this for awhile though waiting for SP1c and using the NGX instead.

 

It was a fair question, hope the answer doesn't seem too ridiculous to you but that's just how it feels for me.

I'm still one of those guys who refuses to use compression, so I end up using the plane less because of it, but I can understand the frustration of something you relied on working prior to an update, and then not working.

If you only have an hour or two,why not just do an hour or two flight till the time it gets fixed. You really don't have to fly long haul to enjoy it. It's still better than circuit flying.

Take it up to 34000 ft.100 miles away. Shut down the engines and glide it back to the airport.fail each system and try to get it back to the airport. So many things to try and learn till some of these things gets fixed. Unless you are only interested in flying A to B doing the regular approaches

Good points, but yea the A to B is what interests me most. Although I do like the ideas.

 

As for A to B flights, the nice looking payware airports I own aren't that close together :). Appreciate the suggestions though, I'm remaining patient but looking forward to getting simrate working again.
