[12JUL17] Important NOTAM for PMDG 737NGX users

9 posts in this topic

Captains,

Two NOTAMs that we want you to be aware of, and to help your fellow NGX pilots be aware of:

1) At release time, the PMDG Operations Center module for the FSX:SE version of the 737NGX is reporting the wrong version.  We don't know why...  If you are an FSX-SE user, just go grab your installer from your download account, even if the Operations Center is saying you are up to date.  You should have version 1.20.8389 to be on the MOST current version.  (We will get this fixed...)

 

2) With the 777, we changed the format of our livery naming convention.  This means that some users might not see their liveries for the 737NGX at first, because those are all listed alphabetically in the aircraft selection menu under B for "BOEING" rather than P for "PMDG."

We are evaluating whether we need to fix this long term- as it is a HUGE amount of work and can create more confusion than is needed...   For now- just scroll up and you will find them all there....

Then there should be Alpha for "Airbus" or any other manufacturer beside Boeing in the future. Great news!

Yeap, I'm dreaming.

Or we can use the very handy search function to find whatever plane we'd like.  I use this all the time to find planes rather than scrolling through my rather long list. (blush).

Works great to find a specific airline, aircraft type, etc.  Want to find all the aircraft in your AA fleet?  Type "American" in the search box.  Hankern' to fly a 777F but not sure which freight company you want to fly for?  Type 777F in the box, you'll see em all.:wink:

I'm hoping I'm showing a feature a lot of folks overlook, but is pretty invaluable when you have a huge fleet to pick from.  I use this feature all the time!

Thanks again RR and crew for the baby Boeing...she's a beaut!

Hello,
I'm the proud owner of the boxed version 737NGX /FSX-SE
At Aerosoft I found an update numbered 1.20.8396.
My question is, this is the same or another update for 737NGX.

regards

That is the latest update for the NGX yes.

Robert/all,

 

I noticed something similar, when selecting my brand new awesome DC-6 in FSX-SE: One of the versions (either pax or cargo, I do not remember exactly) shows up under the publisher PMDG selection, the other one could only be found under the aircraft/Douglas tag.

So maybe a small hint for DC-6 users would make sense, too.

 

Thank you all (Robert/team/testers) for the excellent and immersive DC-6 and all your updates and upgrades, including the very complete, leaves-nothing-to-be-desired NGX.

May I stop refreshing forum the whole weekend  waiting for 737 600 and 700 release? 

I don’t expect an STA, this is aviation. Just an ETA. Only if expected for weekend or not.

Thanks a Lot.
