Good afternoon all,

Although i enjoy the 747-400 so much, i cant stop to think when the -8 will be released?

It seems the DC-6 for P3D/FSX is getting first priority, but also waiting here for the -8i.

Cheers, Ed

Simply because the DC-6 P3D Product Update is being installed by the PMDG OC, once you run it, and the -8i not yet!.

It's been there for a while.  Click on the 747, go to "expansions".

The 8i has been there from the beginning...under expansions.

EDIT:

DOH!  Max beat me to it.  That's what you get for opening a window and not refreshing after getting distracted!!  lol!

You are correct, but then what?
There is no plane that is buyable/downloadable with 747-8

/P

Of course, it hasn't been released yet.  Only PMDG knows.

I don't really understand... This could still be two different independend teams?!

Whether or not, it's updated/visible through the OC is quite irelevant in this case.
Besides, the 8i has been visible in the OC for a while now.

My thinking is that the 747-8i product module is not yet uploaded by PMDG (the expansion commercial info is there, but its product module is not there yet). And, of course, in the case of the DC-6 now you have both, the information and the product module. If my thinking is correct, that would imply the DC-6 for FSX/P3D will be released before the 747-8i expansion.

Anyway, we should enjoy the B747 meanwhile!.

Cheers, Ed

But I still faithful to the 747-400, so I can survive to the expectation of the 747-8 ;)

There is no separate module.

It's the same way in the NGX and 777 - one module for base and expansion

Apparently not the same model!, they have gone back back and produced a new model for the 8, not just an outside model but system and flightdeck and flightmodel the same as the real deal, unlike the first Queen released

Correct:

External model, internal VC model, accurate flight dynamics, system adjustments, ECL, internal / external sound sets, and so on - all accurate to the 747-8i/F.

Will it include IAN?

If the real aircraft has it then yes. Otherwise no. ;-)

I've been watching videos of the 747-8 and looks fantastic.   Was wondering about time frame.  The NGX expansion took about 3 months to be released.   The 777 was close to 10 months.   So what we looking at here:  NGX or 777 time frame ball park?     Either way, one thing is for sure:  it will be amazing.
