Hello all!I would like to know and I'm sure that there are others wondering if your going to create the PMDG series airframes for dovetail?

It is unlikely that they will be able to answer that until,

   A. A lot more is known about the new product's capabilities, structure, and its compatibility with 3rd party add-ons.

   B. the product is actually released, and it becomes clear whether it meets the expectations of with PMDG's customer base.

It is a bit too early although there is the DTG Flight School comming soon it is really made to engage people into learning how to fly and all, the DTG flight Simulator is planned for later this year so we'll probably see what it will be worth around the end of the year if it is released as planned.

It most likely will be many years before enough people acquire  DTG's new sim to make it worthwhile for developers to start making products for it. Most people are still hanging on to FSX.

Yeah.. I think developers (and specially big ones) know more about the product with waaaaaaaay more anticipation then you would, and not after release... Case in point: ORBX...

Ahah yeah ORBX is with them, but somehow I think it is a bit different ORBX working on sceneries which is "easier" as I believe both FSX, P3D and probably DTG all share the same original code base, and same "structure". And there is less "bug" and issues with adding scenery or even replacing textures than wiith code heavy addons like PMDG :)

And I bet that Orbx signed and agreement with DTG that they will be the only supported generator of scenery.

DTG is already working with several developers. Quietly and without much fanfare. The fact that no public announcements are being made does not imply it is not happening.

Couple things here:

  1. Sign your posts. Forum rule.
     
  2. That whole idiom about bridges and crossings...
     
  3. Do not generate negative theories here about other developers. There really isn't much known about this simulator in general. Putting across the idea that a developer is going to set up exclusive relationships for add-ons is pretty irresponsible. I doubt it was an intentionally negative inference, but it's a pretty baseless assertion at this early stage.

Hope you guys are more attentive as pilots :nea: Understand though...you see a comment and dive in, not really remembering what forum your are in, though, Kyle's comments pretty correct.

 

DTG do not seem to share early work with major developers, and sort of present it as..."our stuff works, up to others to decide if yours' will work". Must be a code planning nightmare for developers now with many platform flavours, all with their own user populations..all saying to developers..me..me..me

May want to read Kyles comments above. Talk about baseless banter. You must have some insider information that no one else has.  :fool:

I would think, and this is just my opinion here, that developers may wait to see if it takes off (no pun intended), before they start dumping money and resources into a products add-on development. We all remember MS Flight and the disaster that was.  As with anything dealing with add-ons, all we can do is speculate until they actually release some information. Then we sit back and watch the conspiracy theories snowball.
