Any kind of update would be highly appreciate.

Why would I move to P3D without MD11 ? ... :-)

PMDG took the MD-11 out from their products on December 14, 2015. They made clear that a P3D version will never happen and that the use of the FSX version in P3D violates their EULA.

I wasn't asking for a PMDG version as they have made it very clear.

 

There are other developers though and this question was geared for them.

Don't you just hate when others put words in your mouth? :smile:

I cannot imagine any other developer that would even come close to PMDG's 11 system depth.

There's a few excellent PMDG-level developers out there who make airliners. Also, I can see P3D surviving as a viable sim platform for the next 10 years (look at FS9, still kicking after over a decade). Given 10 years, I think it's possible that the existing A-list developers (and inevitable newcomers) may create an MD-11. After all, it's still a very relevant and accessible aircraft. Even if they don't, you have the TFDi 717 to look forward to, which is kinda like a baby MD-11.

I've heard this Genuine Simulations company plans to eventually develop an MD-11 for P3D.  After all, they did a bang up job on their A380 that has engine and flight modeling within 5% of actual Boeing aircraft performance charts.  Doesn't get much better than that.  All I can say is SHAZAM!!

They built only  about 200 of these, and the last one was built 15 years ago. I would imagine that a sim company looking for a new aircraft to market would take that into consideration.

I guess I don't understand why PMDG couldn't just port the MD11 over to P3D with as little effort as possible. Redirect the installer and registry items, maybe update some of the cockpit textures and there ya go. Maybe even give it sub-$50 or 60 price tag to lure skeptics. The hard work has already done... just a few hours of work and bam, new revenue stream. But they seem like smart folks so I'm sure I've missed something...

Good Luck to you.  We shall all wait (indefinitely) for you to share the results.  Looks epic Gomer Pyle A380 - looks like a must have addon :fool::Tounge:

I agree 100% with Garrett, totally crazy not to port over all the hard work you've already achieved... we all know it (and most other aircraft) will work with minimal effort, just see the recently closed  EMT thread, cases like this are the only reason I can see it was shut down so fast.  I love this hobby, but it's mighty weird at times.  Very discouraging.

I would also love to have the PMDG MD11 for P3Dv3.1

I wouldn't be asking them to make any improvements on it at all, just do what they have to and get it to work as it is. I know that it wouldn't reflect the quality standards that they are making today, but that is just beside the point. 

PMDG put years of time and labor into creating the MD11, and as it is, it's way better than many aircraft sims being released today. I believe it is a proud reflection of the work that they were doing several years ago and would make a perfect "Legacy" product to fly in P3D. It's certainly is nothing to be ashamed of.

I would pay for it again right now to go into P3Dv3.1

The main reason given was that their older products (747-400 and MD-11) was generating a support problem because of compatibility with newer hardware and O/S's. Porting it over to P3D would have just exasperated the situation, at least in their view.

Perhaps there are some licensing issues with Boeing in regards to being allowed to sell the MD-11 in P3D?

 

We all remember, that it took some time and talks with Boeing, in order for PMDG being able to distribute their current series (777 and 737) into P3D...

 

I would assume, that it would be an issue here as well... If it really was so straight-on (as some of you express), I would assume they've done it already... 

 

Maybe I'm wrong - just speculating here...

No, that is definitely one of the issues.

PMDG says there are legal reasons why the 11 will not appear in P3D. But these are problems that could be solved with some efforts of the ones involved.

 

I could imagine that there are contracts and responsibilities in the background that make it not so easy to provide the aircraft as freeware or to transfer the rights to a third party to license it for use in P3D, because PMDG has no own (commercial) interest in providing the aircraft in P3D.

Didn't they say the same about the 737 NGX when P3D appeared....

MD-11 work on 3.1, so EULA don't permit it...

So... don'ttry this at home

PMDG's 11 is the only reason why I keep MS FSX on my hard disk as the use in P3D is not permitted.
