[30JAN17] PMDG 747-400 Queen of the Skies II - Welcome to Release Week!

Recommended Posts

Let's hope it won't be a friday release, but earlier. SO that the weekend can be used for teh real long hauls.

Such an incredible news <3. Finally more hand flying instead of your beautiful but too auto 777 ;)

Simply stunning feature list, truly will be something to behold I think.

 

Aye, I expect to fly this and the 800 variant for years.

I really hope she is released before Friday as well.  I'm off all this week but start an away from home contract for 7 days on Friday evening.

great news! cant wait to get my hands on her :D

 

 

- Various wing/nacelle anti-ice system options with optional ice detection systems

 

So as you have implimented ice detection and anti ice sytems, does that mean we could have ice building-up and and effects the aircrafts flying dynamics ? (since we have as16 that provides accurate weather ? )

Ah  yes I have AS16 and look forward as well to the functional weather radar, icing would be very cool, do we dare hope for that?

Same here. To release on a Friday would mean support through the weekend and I know they would like to take a well needed break after the release. It's never good practice to release on a Friday. I'm leaning more towards Wednesday.

If this is all built in the Queen, is it best to disable all shaking and vibration and such in EZDok 2 (or whatever camera add-on) or can they coexist side by side?

That is what is great about EZDok2 - you can turn off just the things that are already modeled in the aircraft and still use other actions of EZDok2. So just make a profile with the actions the  Queen already has turned off in EZDok.

A few comments in response to some of the questions over the last few pages:

  • Ground contact model: The ground contact model essentially side-steps the FSX/P3D "the ground is covered in peanut butter" view of the world. Idle thrust taxi is possible (and its effectiveness will depend on your weight), you can also carry your speed through turns a lot more realistically, and the decel on landing (and associated energy absorption by the brakes) is more to spec. The feel of the plane on the ground is so much better. I'll end it here though - you have to experience it to fully understand it.
  • Cockpit shake feature: Any program that adds in camera shake, or some sort of physical alteration of the air to make the plane shake should be turned off. All the same, if you prefer to have it the other way around, you can disable the feature in the 744 as well.
  • Ground service vehicles: GSX will interfere with our models. You can turn ours off, however, if you prefer GSX's models.

 

 

 

EDIT:

To be clear, the price has not been announced. While you are welcome to take a guess, please make it abundantly clear that you're providing a guesstimate, and are not conveying the actual price. I've seen a number of posts here, on Facebook, and in other spots where people are saying "it'll be X," as if PMDG has set the price and the person is repeating official information. This isn't the case.

That's the plan, Paul.  Really enjoying the more stable Ezdok v2 release and will definitely want to continue using it without sacrificing all the juicy new features offered in the Queen.

Do you have TrackIR?  I do andso have no need of EZDock.  Just curious as to why one would want/need EZDock of they have TIR.
