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

Recommended Posts

Same here. My heart rate rose and if I had a tail it would be wagging.

 

 

 

NOTAM: 28JAN17 -.1900Z

 

The PMDG eCommerce site is offline temporarily while we effect upgrades for the upcoming release of the PMDG 747-400 Queen of the Skies II. (It is NOT releasing right now.... relax!)

 

This site will be offline for a few moments, please return in about :45!

 

We apologize for any inconvenience this outage causes you- but please come back once we are up and running once again!

 

PMDG

 

Your patience is appreciated!

What they probably meant: "Go away, it's not releasing today!"

What I read: "It is not releasing right NOW. But in 1h"

If it isn't releasing today then they should have just said that in the message. Otherwise they will have people pinging their website over and over to see what happens after the update. Then again maybe it is releasing today and they just don't want to cause a stampede.

And this is just how our male brains work. They could have written "Blablabla" into there and it would have had the exact same effect on us :lol: I'll be checking in a few times tonight, but not too often either

At this point I'm thinking they have to do a silent release in the wee hours of night or they'll make AVSIM and their own site explode. :P

I don't think it matter what strategy they may think of to prevent an ambush. If there isn't an internet black-out going from country to country one by one their site is going down lol. Even with a silent release. Even if they lied to us "We will release it in three days" and did it now it wouldn't help.

I am sure they have steps in place to throttle the bandwidth to keep the site up. I doubt a release today, one of the beta testers (Carl) just uploaded a thread where he said he got a new beta build last night. So unless that build is the release candidate, I would suggest another couple of days.

 

As always when making such pronouncements, quite happy to be proved wrong!!

Pure speculation: I get the feeling another post is coming from Robert tomorrow letting us know what the actual release date is.

Gents,

 

You guys are hysterical.  :P

 

All we are doing today is server maintenance in preparation for release...  This will probably go on all day tomorrow too.

 

We told you two weeks ago that we would give you some warning...  R.E.L.A.X!!!!!!

 

We are still finalizing some details and giving the beta and tech teams a chance to wring it out over the weekend and make sure we are happy with it.

Now, why, oh why are you spoiling all the conspiracy theories here Robert  :P ???  Seriously though, when reading the earlier post of the Beta tester who did the flight this morning after receiving another beta build, I would have guessed right away that release was not today hahahaha.   Just like @rfelger, I am just starting out an 11h00 flight in the B77W from FAOR to EGLL so yeah...

This is exactly what they want us to think. Trying to throw us off. We got too close. Be right back. I heard a noise in my attic. I'll go downstairs and check.

They did the same thing last night. The site was down with the same message for about half and hour. I don't think it's going to be released today. Maybe tomorrow!!! Lol!! :-)
