Any plan for MD11 P3D Version?

Unfortunately not. The MD-11 is loved by a fairly select or at least relatively small) group, and never achieved the popularity that other PMDG products received. She earned it, but just didn't get the market share to justify PMDG allocating resources and funds to convert her.  Don't shoot the messenger, just passing the information along.

 

By the way, PMDG requires member to include their real first and last names when posting in their forums. Again, don't shoot the messenger...

+1.  Wish they would update the cockpit and convert it to P3D.

Why not give him another chance.

I bought the PMDG 772-3 and 738-9 P3D, I would like the MD11 is in P3D, and also the 752-3 and 763-4

Well even i would buy the MD11 for ~100$.

 

But maybe some other make a P3D version. CS for example. Then PMDG will wake up and give us the P3D Version + VC Update...?

You guys are just exercising your fingers for nothing. PMDG has said on several occasions the MD-11 is what it is right now. There will be no changes or installers for platforms other than what is available now.

It's a legacy aircraft and lot of FSX users are migrating to P3D now.

 

If using migration tool is a violation, they could to this effort to make a new version for P3D.

 

I would pay +$100 for a MD-11 on P3D and be very happy with it :)

In terms of functionality that's true, no more updates. However earlier this year RSR said they would investigate whether the MD-11 installers could be made compatible with FSX-SE. P3D wasn't mentioned, but I suppose it's possible that might be considered too.

You may well be right. Many things are mentioned on the forum that never eventually happen because plans change. It hasn't been specifically ruled out though, so maintaining a hope of it isn't unrealistic. Could be a long wait though.

Nice! But can I get a custom walnut instrument panel and delivery to KAVP?? 1.1 mil USD, final offer. But seriously, the DC-6 is the reason I just bought xplane. I do love the md11, but the dc6 will be a new challenge entirely.

Are you sure the MD-11 doesn't work in P3d?

Irrelevant. Doing so would be in violation of our EULA for the product, which is licensed for FSX only.

I purchased the MD-11 for FS9, and then again for FSX as separate products (When I purchased the FS9 version I was only using FS9 and not FSX)

 

I'd buy a P3D version over again, even if the only difference was the EULA and an installer that pointed to the right sim. Bug fixes and upgrades not required. (There was only 1 bug I remember in the MD11 as far as I can remember? - the VC could do with a texture touch up, but even without it the MD11 is still one of my favourite 5)

 

Of course I don't actually use P3D yet... so that's pretty academic for me at this stage.

PMDG should relax for the loyal purchasers and allow the EULA in this instance to be extended. My opinion.  We are their business, without us, they don't exist.

Correct...but if a corporation were to find that we were allowing their data to be used outside of the license we've obtained for said use, the legal cost could also make us "not exist." P3D has never, and will never be a "just make a new installer" issue for us. Period. End. It involves a lot more than what this community wants to give it credit for, whether the community members want to admit to that or not. At one point, as RSR mentioned, said legal issues kept our entry into P3D on hold as they thought we were not being aggressive about protecting their interests..

 

So, please trust us when we say it's not as simple as everyone would like to believe.

 

This one references wanting to remain in the good graces of our licensing partners:

Kyle,

 

I'd like to see the MD-11 in P3d, but it works just fine in FSX.

 

Besides some folks get to play "you bet your job" a coupe times a year in a CAE MD-11 full-flight simulator. :-)))

Thanks for your explanation Kyle. I am wiser now, good buddy.  :-)
