[13SEP17] Updates Pushed for 737NGX (all) and 777-200LR/F product lines

Recommended Posts

Captains,

We have just pushed a few small, cleanup updates that should be propagating out in the PMDG Operations Center as we speak.  (It takes a few hours to reach all sectors of the globe, so if you don't see them this instant, don't panic- it just takes a bit to boil out there...)

 

The 777-200LR/F got a very small update that was focused on cleaning up a couple of items that we captured during research for a pending update on the 747- and since the item affected all product lines, the 777 update became necessary.  You can check the change log for a list of minor items that were also included.  (Note:  The 777-300ER was not updated because it gets it's behavioral logic from the base package, and as such an update wasn't needed.)

 

The 737NGX (both the 800/900 base package and the 600/700 expansion) were updated to clean up a few items that we missed during the round of updates related to Prepar3D v4 compatibility.  Primarily these are very small items, but we also had a few texture/lighting/click spot anomalies that we wanted to address within Prepar3D v4- and this update should take care of those.  This update series also wraps in a couple of minor items that were pass-down fixes from our continued work on the 747-400, and you can read the change log for more details if you like.

 

Livery Update for the DC-6 for FSX/P3D:  We pushed the "Independence" livery that Pete Sterling created last week.  This originally started out as an internal piece but it came out so beautifully we felt that it should be shared. 

 

Pending updates for the 747-400:  We have some items we are wrapping up to push out for the 747-400, but they are still being worked internally.  We also have a massive amount of stuff we are holding back because it will get previewed with the 747-8, and those previews should start up here fairly soon.  We are WAY (way way) behind on that project thanks in large part to the all-hands effort required to get all of the Prepar3D v4 compatibility taken care of- but last I checked it seemed everyone was back to using the time clock in the 747-8 assembly hall, so this is indeed a good thing.

Stay tuned- we will have more for you soon!

Does this mean they are updated via the Ops Center or do we need to download the whole product and install again.

Too bad nothing was mentioned about the J41 "coming soon" post from Facebook.

A little bit unrelated to this post, but when will we see the ground roll friction 'mod' for the NGX? 

Also very much looking forward to the JS41! :biggrin:

You seem to be in a twist about my comment.

No issue here, just seems odd that a Facebook only post has not had any mention with an official notice in the forum. Not the usual PMDG way of doing things and was hoping for some news in this update.

I opened the Op Center, which told me I had 3 updates.   I clicked on the NGX update, got the notification that it was downloading and then the Op Center disappeared from my screen.  I tried to open it again and was told it was still running.  A few minutes later, I tried again and it opened but there were no notifications of updates and the changelog didn't mention any.  What do I do now?

Depending on what sim you are using, if V4 install the V4 update if V3 install that etc. Are you running the ops center as Admin?

Yes, as admin.  As I said, the updates disappeared from the OC before I could install them.

Ideally, not ask for support in an update thread like this, as it's bound to get lost in all of the other replies.

All the same, since I'm here, the download bar in the OC itself is simply letting you know the progress of downloading the .exe that will be updating the aircraft for you. If you do not see a command window (black box, with plain white text) pop up, then it's likely that an anti-virus program is intercepting the .exe file and either preventing it from being downloaded, or preventing it from running.

"A PMDG product is never late, it arrives precisely when it means to" - Randazzo the Grey 

Good thing to have maintenance and compatibility for existing products squared away first, PMDG did an amazing job with this whole endeavour. It only makes sense that the 'new stuff' would have to wait.   :happy:

Does this update apply to us FSX-SE users as well ? Is there much reason for us to do the reinstall?

Seeing that this is a micro-update, there is no uninstall-reinstall method. Actually, if you uninstall, the OC won't be able to see the aircraft on your computer, and will not recommend that you update it (nor will the updater be able to update anything).

Thanks, PMDG, for the Independance livery.

Really great to fly President Truman's private aircraft!
