PMDG secret project

Recommended Posts

My gut says DC-3 or something like that, but something in my doubts it, due to the fact that the DC-6 isn't ready yet.

My heart says 757, but again I doubt that due to the fact that another well respected developer once said they are working on one. 

I doubt it'll be a 787 since again yet another well respected developer (they also did a 757 once) is working on a 787. 

So in the end I'll bet on that hand-grenade Robert was talking about a few months back in an Airbus thread. :P

Well...A little ingenuity can simulate 8 engines with 4...just playing with the thrust of one to simulate 2.

That's exactly what Capt. Sim did with their B-52. But is that the PMDG way? Maybe in XPlane.

So guys are you saying since 32 bit (FSX) can't deal with more than four engines... PMDG are working on a 64 bit plane simulating more than 4 engines and since PMDG are focused on Boeing it is highly likely that the plane will be a Boeing with more than 4 engines for a 64 bit sim platform => Boeing + 64 bit + more than four engines = B52 for X plane 10 64 bit maybe?

Hell no. My post was just to correct the idea that simulating 8 engines in FSX isn't possible. Nothing to do with what PMDG has planned or 32 bit vs 64bit.

It's probably that Steam style updating capability that Ryan mentioned they would create, but all of us are most likely wrong. It would probably be something completely off left field. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

777th post. If I was right, then PMDG= Illuminati confirmed.

If PMDG were to do one yes. Maybe in a little more refined way but given that the desired outcome is the same...

I doubt any military boeing will be picked. But market for those in a sim like x-plane would be bad.

As it was said it will be made for fsx also.

A civ A320 to fly around and get shot at in DCS?  Been hooked on DCS lately.  I too love my GBUs.  GaBoos go BOOM!

PMDG should consider doing a 727. There is no complicated navigation displays and no fancy FMC. If they wanted to add a navigation unit, they should use the same unit they put into the JS41 which some 727s use also. If this is too complicated, they can easily create a simple GPS unit that again, some 727's have.

 

I guess the time consuming aspect of such a project would be creating the various 727 models. If even this is too much of a hassle, they can just stick to the 727-200 with a Freighter and Super27 expansion.

I am always facinated by Military heavies. A C-17III Globemaster will be awesome. Its Cockpit layout is unique. Its exterior is unique. But I don't know how feasible that is. Isn't it made by Boeing?

Boeing is pretty protective of its MD products for some reason. Beyond that, it's military, so the (detailed/official) performance data is likely FOUO at a minimum

Boeing is protective of it's MD's? Is that why the movie Flight didn't just use an MD-80 or 717 (Like it obviously wanted)? I've always found Boeing to be receptive of entertainment brand uses. I can name a million films and games that have Boeing aircraft up close and center, but nothing with an MD.

The 727 and 707 are my favorite commercial AC of all time. I would love to see the 727 done as only PMDG can. Only problem is it wouldn't be a big seller as the majority of simmers are looking for current AC in civilian service. So PMDG probably wouldn't ever do it. Too bad as the 707 really brought in the jet age as we know it today. And the 727 was the first  to open up destinations all over the world that were previously inaccessible to larger commercial jets. So much history there that not a lot of people really pay attention to.

Yep. If you have the PMDG MD-11, you'll note that it doesn't come with a lot of performance data in the books. While I could swear there was a post out there that gives a little more specifics than this one, here is an example:

http://forum.avsim.net/topic/124347-md-11-fcom-part-4-performance-missing/#entry818984

 

One would imagine that, if they're okay with giving performance data for the 777, they'd be fine with giving the perf data for another plane (especially since it was an acquisition), but apparently not.

 

 

 


Is that why the movie Flight didn't just use an MD-80 or 717 (Like it obviously wanted)?

 

haha - you mean the MD-80-717-CRJ? I think that was just their way of not having to pay one of the companies to use one of their planes in the movie. Plus, manufacturers tend to get a little uppity about their planes being used in disaster films.

 

Interestingly enough, it seems that they did think enough about a few aviation accidents that the movie was based off of to find the common type (SAS751 - the engine surge-stall aspect and subsequent miracle landing in a field; and ASA261 - the attempted inversion to save a control jam, along with the jackscrew cause).

Absolutely. They must have their reasons for being a little more strict on use of the MD stuff, though I don't know what they are.
