NOT saying they should make it.

NOT thinking they would even consider it.

NOT demanding anything from anyone.

But for once and for all...let's give PMDG a renewed up-to-date view of customer demand for the MD-11, after which it's up to them if they want to act on it in the future.

 

Reply with a  YES  if you're truly(!) willing to pay full price for a new up-to-date PMDG MD-11.

 

No analyses...no love stories...no "No's"... just a simple  YES

Hi,


Laudable gesture unfortunately this "poll" would not bring any significant results because as stated several times by PMDG's staff, the people expressing themselves on that forum are only a fraction of the PMDG loyal customers (to what extend though?)

I love(d) the MD-11 but I'm one of these guys would almost exclusively fly real flights in real time (either pax and freighter). I'm already struggling more and more to find a good choice of flights with the 747 not to say with the MD-11 which is no longer flown in pax variant.

By the time the MD-11 would be brought to the P3D v4 standard (which I think would imply a complete new rendering just like the QOTS II), who knows how many MD-11 freighters would still be flying if any?

So for me it would be NO, sorry! :blush:

Yes

 

However, if the MD-11 fanbase was large enough would not fundraising a further development be a better incentive for the company? Say, if at point X PMDG didn't receive enough investment funds from the crowd to kick off development, the MD-11 was DEMOCRATICALLY dead.

 

Best regards,

Christian Kelter

I would say YES but what kind of MD11 are you talking about....just porting over the original and recompiling for 64bit P3D or a completely new MD-11 updated to todays VC standards, etc, etc.  I would rather vote YES on this one.

No. There's enough widebody heavy metal for FSX/P3D as it is (PMDG 744, PMDG77W/77L, AS A330/A340, BBS A330/A340, JF L1011, LVD 767 etc).

I'd prefer to see the resources channelled in to regional jets, turboprops and shorthaul machinery because there is little quality beyond the 737 and A320 families available. For example E-Jets, EMB-120, ATR, C-Series, S340, Do328. By comparison the MD-11 is in its twilight years with limited appeal.

First I want the 737 to work in v4...then I can start wishing for other things.

Come on... This question comes up every so often. It's been answered and replied so many times. By the way:

  1. A poll in here isn't a (complete) picture, or doesn't necessary represent the customer base for PMDG.
  2. no matter how many times people scream, cry out, demand, ask, suggest (<-- put in any other synonym you want) for a MD-11 by PMDG, it simply won't happen.
  3. To be honest, I think there's more to the story than a simple marketing and/or sales decision. Could be copyright, failure to receive license from Boeing or a third option... 

I'm terribly sorry to be the buzzkill, but I quite frankly fail to see the point of this thread!

EDIT: To answer the poll: YES I probably would - but I don't see it happening, sadly...

Its looking good guys,  12 people want to buy at $139.  That's just over $1600 for Robert et al.  It reminds me of the Saturday Night Live where Dan Ackroyd tried to entice the Beatles to play on the show for $38.

I love the MD-11, but this horse has been beaten to dust and during every beating PMDG has clearly answered NO.

Best answer I can think of...  HERE.  lol

I gave up. Its not happening. Written in stone. Of course I will buy, but looks like it will have to be one in Xplane.

My vote is YES but it won't happen because the dev that spearheaded it, In the first place has gone to FSLabs where he successfully completed the Airbus that he wanted to do while with PMDG.

Nuff said?
