Next product of PMDG

Recommended Posts

I would die for an MD-80 ;-) But then again I may be biased, given my 5000+ hours on type.

Plus as stated above, if they announce it, I'll die. So I won't be around to enjoy it. Just imagine though, the sounds of the slipstream, the instruments vibrators humming in the background, a complete lack of engine noise, the Mach indicator bouncing away (as in the B744 MCP digits) and the sounds of the Central Aural Warning System coming alive in due time as you descend towards your destination. All in PMDG level quality !!!! Oh......my heart is melting :gaul:

I feel you mate, we will be both dead before PMDG will release something really new. :bengong:

We can say that the younger PMDG bird is flying since 23 years ago, her variants do not change the big picture imo, just like the 747-8 won't at all.

But you could say that about anything, the variants that PMDG developed are fairly new aircraft and are nowhere near end of life.

Also Mr. Randazzo stated that the NGX is already 6 years old and it would be in needing of a refresh.

That's very true but we don't know how PMDG will go about "refreshing" the code, will it be a whole new NGX v3 or will it be done progressively with updates, we don't know.

So, why not releasing a 787 ?  QW 787 will be released in Q2 2020 for FSX and in Q3 2026 for P3d, too long for me. I prefer waiting 5 years for a PMDG product, if they start now there is good chance we will see a 787 before 2025 Xmas.

Because QW are doing a high fidelity 787? The QW 787 is in beta testing so it shouldn't be too much longer before it's released.

The problem with developing new aircraft (like the 787, 737 Max, A350 and the likes) is the amount of data available. For PMDG to make a study-level simulation, they need mountains of data which is hard to obtain, even more so when an aircraft is new.

You have been precise, calm and polite. I can't fight with you therefore :happy:

Jokes apart, I can somehow understand your point of view but at least one recent bird would help the finances of PMDG cause in these recent times customers have been sprayed over XP11, P3d v4, Aerofly FS2, etc etc.. and to keep yourself on the edge you need to offer customers a wide portfolio, translated, why QW 787 is so waited ? Because non one ever did a modern jet with big screens, yes, a magenta sons idol.

PMDG finances are healthy ok, that's not anyway a good reason to perpetrate '70 brownish cockpits  :happy:

The 777, the 747- 800, 737-800 etc are new actively produced aircraft...Its ridiculous to call them old aircrafts

 

For the later aircraft like the 787, to build a PMDG quality aircraft, they would need real data which may not be easy to get for PMDG.

 

if you want a superfluous 787 don't expect

that from PMDG

Oh trust me I want a PMDG 787 really bad but deep down I know it's probably not going to happen. I think the QW team work part time on the development so it takes a lot longer than PMDG who have full time developers.

There is another thread where I express my love for the 777, I would anticipate a 772 series or 757. Remember, they make art, but they make art they know would bring them the most bank. ;) With all the competition out there for the "popular" aircraft types, they have to consider more than just the aircraft types and devotees out there.

They should go for the 777-200ER. The only T7 that is still missing, loved and operated by many airlines around the worldd

I'd much rather see a full new aircraft, such as a 787, 757 or 767 as opposed to yet ANOTHER variant of an aircraft they've already produced.

Thats true, I wouldn't mind an MD-80 series.

Especially when they are variants that you have no interest in buying no matter how many new versions come out.

 

I'd like the MD-80 because it's quirky and a bit different and with the Leonardo Maddog unavailable for P3DV4, there is a gap in the market, or the 757 because it's versatile and can do long or short hops. And with winglets it has a really badass bird of prey look about it. :smile:
