[20JUN17] Micro Update pushed for Prepar3D 777-200LRF users

Recommended Posts

Captains,

We pushed a minor update for Prepar3D users of the PMDG 777-200LR/F earlier this evening.

The update capitalizes on some performance enhancements we worked out for both prepar3D platforms, and it adds the rolling friction model we introduced with the 747-400 earlier this year.  We had a half dozen other minor items in this update that we fixed just because we had our hands on stuff, and we also corrected a bug that caused the brakes to overheat for some users in unexpected conditions...

You can obtain this update via the Operations Center.

We are working to publish a rollup-update for FSX/FSX-SE users.  That should drop before the weekend, we think.

Hi Robert,

Thanks for the update. I have a quick question. There has been a problem with the 777 in P3D V3 about VAS leak when using FMC with certain airports arrival. I submitted a ticket a while back and it was confirmed to be fixed later on. Has it been fixed in the latest version?

Thank you,

Hoang Le

Hoang,

I haven't had time to really colate and distill a change list for the 777.  Our last major update for that product was in January of 2016, and there have probably been somewhere between 500-800 changes made to the product since then as we made changes and development in the 747-400.

Chances are it has been address- but at this point I don't really know for certain and with all of the conversion activity taking place- I'm finding it hard to get enough time free to work on the change list. 

(This is a good problem to have- at least that is what i keep telling myself!)

Hi Robert, 

Is there any update on the "activation" of RAAS for the 777 and 747 on P3Dv4?

Thanks a lot. Worked like a charm. Great that there is now download progress information added to the process so that you know how it goes :)

Thanks for the update. I have a question about the 777. I have just bought the 747 V3 and have noticed that the plane seems much more alive then the 777. In that when taking off the plane is bouncing around a lot more while going down the runway and if you operate the airplane close to its speed limit threshold it makes a lot of weird noises and starts to shake a bit. Is this being considered for the 777. I really like this feature in the 747 but I really only fly the 777. Thanks for all your hard work.

Does anyone know if FSUIPC5 and PMDG products are playing well together yet? I know there were some initial issues and Pete has put out a bunch of tiny updates to FSUIPC5 but I haven't been able to find a definitive answer. Thanks!

Yes, those issues are fixed.

The cockpit/airframe shaking feature is new to the 747v3 - we haven't backported it to the 777 or NGX yet - it's on the list for the future. The point of these updates happening right now is mainly the P3Dv4 compatibility and performance, not adding new features to the products.

Thorsten,

There' s a separate thread about that already - the OC downloads its files from Amazon AWS's global CloudFront distribution network. This issue is specific to German CloudFront edge servers somehow and we're going to have to get in touch with Amazon's support to figure out what's going on most likely. Every report we have of it is from Germany.

Sorry.. I found my answer in another thread.  I really should drop by here more often.

 

Cheers!

Can you tell me if the the shaking feature has problems with GSX pushback on the ground in the 747 V3? Because when starting pushback with FSDT's GSX the cockpit starts to shake/jitter violently. It stops when pushback is completed. Of course I could also be mistaken and the problem lies with GSX program. I noticed using GSX the nosewheel is "shooting left and right" during pushback with the GSX truck.

How to fix it?

Robert,

Do you have a changelog?  I'm curious to know if the update fixed the problem I was having with performance when I turned on the landing or taxi lights at night.  I tried lots of different possibilities and settings, but now everything seems to be working fine, or at least a lot better, after I ran the update this morning.  I'm still tinkering here, but just curious nonetheless.

John
