[21JAN17] PMDG 747-400 Queen of the Skies II - More Release Info

Recommended Posts

I am hoping he is trolling. Merging a top of the line payware airplane with a first class exterior model, with a freeware plane that was "Really cool in 2002...")

My guess is he was joking, because of the ;) Like Kyle said, why in the world would you want to substitute the PMDG model.

 

I hope he was joking anyway

I never owned the previous version of the PMDG 747

 

What???   Where have you been all these years  :P ?   Seriously though, forget the 777 and the NGX - what you are about to experience flying the 744 is like nothing else, and what I have seen from the subtle little things PMDG included in the flight model, the feel of this majestic bird has been captured in breathtaking style, the way only PMDG can do it...

 

Also looking forward to the release.   I already warned my boss and the family that I will disappear to an undisclosed location for a yet to be determined amount of time.

 

Regards

Ha ha same... we have two long weekends coming up in the next two weeks here and I have taken an additional couple of days off for the second one for other reasons, which may just get "postponed" due to the release of the 747...

Will any manuals/tutorial scripts be made available before release for pre-reading ?

err was any of the ngx or t7 pdf manuals released beforehand, so the answer is no, besides only 8 days to go

My guess was no, although I'm sure PMDG did this before - maybe not with the NGX. Might have been someone else. I may be confusing it with the seperate purchase of the physical manuals in the past

After 20 years with fs/fsx I moved to P3D V3 2 weeks ago (yes it cost a bit of $$$ to get back my add ons) and I've never looked back! loving P3D...Currently doing a YSSY-CYVR in the 772 :)

 

Cant wait for the Queen though and that will finalise my PMDG Boeing hangar!....thats until the PMDG 787  :wink:

In the real world, most of them are at KMZJ, KVCV, and KMHV in the States (at least for storage). There are several more fields where they process the aircraft as scrap (KTUP, KROW, and KSFB to name a few).

 

Thanks Kyle. I hope these airports don't charge landing fees. I might have to delay investing in my new fleet!

Given that the new 747 manuals are liable to be the actual Boeing ones (like the 777 ones were), i'd say no due to copyright issues.

Within the next 2 weeks is perfect timing for me, my new beast of a PC arrives next week. Really looking forward to it!

For those asking about manuals:

 

No, for a couple reasons.

  1. The bulk of the manuals are the Boeing manuals. They're expensive, so we're not going to just hand them out for free (and it would be against our agreement).
  2. The other manuals and tutorials are usually being updated frequently toward the end of the development cycle. This is both because we find items that trip the beta team up just about daily, and also because we want to ensure that the Intro Matches the product as closely as possible, and the product may not be finalized until very late in the game.

Given that the 737, 777, and DC-6 documents are up on the Documents page of our site (the PMDG part of the documents anyway), you may be able to access them pre-purchase, but post-release.

 

 

Aye, pay pal standing by...take my money.

 

I thought you'd gotten a prepaid card so as to cut down trace evidence for the PtVCW

Not bad, not bad. I have the girlfriend to deal with, a tough one, but buying her a two weeks long all inclusive package holiday will probably sort her out. ;-)

I finally managed  to ...barter ... with the Prone-to-Violence-Cop-Wifefor permission to buy the P3D version.  Noone knows how long this will be green lighted andso good thing we are near release.

Here is a well tested technique, that has helped me with my expensive hobbies and maybe will be of help to you as well.

 

1) As you hear "her" coming in -->> POUT!!

2) She will ask: "What is wrong?"

3) -still pouting- "Nothing" you will answer

4) "I know something is wrong, what is it?" she will say

5) -still pouting- "Nothing really, I thought about getting something, but it is waay too expensive" you will reply

6) "What is it? How much?" she will ask, with some concern on her face.

7) -still pouting- "It's OK, it is just the new airplane from PMDG, $XX.xx, it is too much"

8) "Come on!!" She will say, "it is your hobby, you love this, treat yourself from time to time" she'll say

9) -puppy face- "You think so?, OK, maybe I'll just get it then. Thanks for the advice sweetheart"

10) You bring the credit card out, from under that piece of paper that was already on your desk

11) -big smile- you place your order, happy in the belief that she "bought it"

12) She walks away with a big smile on her face, knowing that from the moment she came into the house, she knew that you were lying through your teeth

 

Peace in the household

 

Works every time!! 

 

Guaranteed!!

 

Sorry, I have to go. I hear Becky coming in, I have to pout!

 

Cheers

Roberto

since i have bought all PMDG products maybe as i am getting old but i never remember a sale on PMDG products.

Well, I am still young and do remember clearly that the PMDG 777 and 737 for P3D have both been on sale with an introductionary price in 2015. Those good old times... :-)

Good one! At my house that's as far as it gets. I just buy the thing and worry about explaining it  next month.
