Is your new sig a hint of something coming?! (At long last)

 

:ph34r:

 

Maybe...

Hmmmmm Lockheed has Skunk works, PMDG must be working on some advanced something or other.......no doubt something else to make wallets cry in the flight simming world!

Or maybe he just changed his signature as a 'practical joke'...

... just to see what kind of "conspiracy theories" could emerge...  :BigGrin:

Anders,

 

There are no conspiracy theories in simming...

 

Just because nobody has been able to prove them, doesn't mean they aren't factual...

So Lockheed-Martin has their Skunk Works division and PMDG has their secret Pigeon Works division...interesting...

I know, I know... and thanks, Robert!

 

But having followed PMDG's forum in here for quite a while, I came to realize, that there are plenty of theories, regarding PMDG's actions, when it comes to what you're doing, what you're developing - and even what you're doing in your spare-time... proven or not (it's been quite entertaining to follow) ... So in that perspective, I wouldn't be surprised, if the PMDG-team pulled a (simple) prank. Simply just to see what could emerge from it... 

 

We're quite good at speculating.

 

(My comment above, was firstly meant as a joke... and secondly I was wondering out loud ...)

This was a perfect post to end with the " :ph34r: ".

:P

Maybe an PMDG F-22?

 

OR

 

Free open source, cross platform, Shared Cockpit, + SDK/API for all to use and for developers to adopt in order to advance the whole of flight simming in general (rising tide lifts all boats). This means Shared Cockpit coming to all PMDG addons as well as possible for all aircraft for all other sims.

 

OR

 

PMDG announce they purchased FSX/P3D code from Microsoft and will make own flight simulator from here on out. Hence forth we have 64-bit, DX12 support, + Vulcan, OpenGL, Linux, etc and the default aircraft will include PMDG in the sims.

 

OR

 

Used A.I. and Deep Learning/Machine learning and created a nueral net and trained a bot to be able to do realistically the tasks of a real first officer.  This would make FS2Crew obsolete. Eventually Boeing /Airbus buys this tech from PMDG to make the first self flying airliners. Just as Deepmind is doing machine learning using virtual gaming 3D environments, it would make sense to train an AI autopilot in a flight sim first rather than in real life. PMDG could do a persistent connection to all users and datamine the stuff and get enough data to do this. All it needs is require persistent intnernet for "activation" reasons and then collect the data, in effect using crowd sourcing to machine train.

 

OR

 

Solve the cost/license issue with the EFB and now a simulator of Boeing 787 is possible.

 

OR

 

Merger with FSLABS and now an Airbus A350 is on the way.

 

OR

 

PMDG addons aircraft now uses its own flight models as opposed to the flawwed FSX/P3D.

 

OR

 

A passengers Mode where the aircraft flys itself and we can just sit and watch and look out the window the entire flight. The cabins is now rendered in really beauitiful 3d, and there are attractive flight attendants with beautiful physiques to watch

 

and FINALLY

 

A Shared Cockpit scheme where non-flying pilots (simmers) get to sit and watch for free. So that someone who has a PMDG product can "show" it to someone who does not have a PMDG product, essentially the other free individual can download and use only in "watch only" mode where he has no controls, and only when synced up in a Shared Cockpit mode where the flying pilot actually is paid for a PMDG Product. This is like free advertisment/exposure while at the same time advancing flight simming in this sort of shared cockpit mode... Kind of like the concept where a paid member of a dating site can contact a free member and the free member can then respond.  Or scale it to multicasting, for example, instead of like Live YouTube or Twitch or whatnot, have this Shared Cockpit be scalable in a sort of "presentation" mode whereby it is a scalable one to many relationship, so that all those with the same PMDG addon product (or even a freemium "view only" version of the product) can join in "life" as the flight is taking place as if he or she was right in front of it, versus having to watching a mere recording of it via YouTube or Vimeo or whatnot.... And another idea is this doesn't have to be 'live' or in real time necessarily but can also be recorded for 'life' playback, and thus no more need for watching videos when doing airline2sim/angleofattack and can just download the shared cockpit recording etc.

Piegons and doves seem to be very similar beings, so pigeon[-tails] might be similar to dove-tails :-)
