Nice and fair price. I got this in my hanger for P3dv3 but never took the time to learn it as I was loving the 737ngx. Alot of people give this bird good raps so I'm definitely buying the upgrade and giving it another crack.

Excellent, my hiatus from this aircraft in p3dv4 has caused me to be a bit overconfident in my virtual flying abilities, taking to the skies in the q400 again should fix that!! 😀

We do we need a second post on the same topic? We have the official MJ post here already.

The forum police have arrived.  News about an updated aircraft release for P3D in the P3D forum.  The nerve of some people.

Oh, come on.

This has nothing to do with 'Forum Police' or backseat-moderation. He wasn't objecting to the topic of the thread. It was merely a bewilderment of the fact, that multiple similar (or identical) threads with the (nearly) same title and content needs to be created. 

And he's right, to be honest. It's confusing. If users took 3-5 seconds of simply scanning through the forum. Just to see if a thread exists, regarding a topic they're about to create, we could avoid all these uneccessary threads.

It would go such a long way, IMO.

Just as the title says, they are hoping for October 23 as a release date but we all know that it isn't set in stone and subject to change at any time. 

Upgrade pricing for existing users:

PILOT version: $14.95 EUR

PRO version: $19.95 EUR

Very clever of that site to automatically "subscribe" me upon visiting. Now that's a little more disturbing than a second thread on a missed topic.

I never noticed it did that before, my apologies!

FSL A320 and MJC Q400 all within 2 weeks?

Gotta love it :)

Seriously I was not expecting the Q400 ( considering in the MJC forum that extensive "reworking" was required ) until maybe Dec.

$19.99 for the Pro upgrade is fine with me :)

I feel sorry for anybody that was confused about an informative post about a P3D release in a dedicated P3D forum.  I think it is sad that the same people consistently feel the need to jump all over fellow members if they don't agree where a topic is posted or have a difference of opinion just in an effort to make them look stupid.  It has nothing to do with the nature of the topic.  It is just a pathetic attempt to feel superior.  It really is pathetic.  Maybe it is self esteem issues.

I don't follow the MJ subforum, but I do follow the P3D forum, and have also heard a lot of positive talk about the Q400, so might be interested in picking it up at some point.  So I for one, am glad that this was posted here.  A little cross pollination is a good thing.

Fair pricing, I will commit.

Are you kidding me?!

First of all, I was not jumping all over forum members! I was merely pointing out, that another member was confused as to why it was neccessary to create multiple threads regarding the same topic. 

Second, don't you dare accuse me (or anyone else, for that matter!), who's trying to point out a general tendency, of being mentally unstable, having self esteem issues or another variant, you're trying to pin on other members. 

Again, this post and my original post, has nothing to do with me trying to feel superior, jumping all over other members, or in other ways sneer, mock or ridicule them! It was simply an observation from another member, who put a general concern out, regarding multiple thread creations.

Don't kill the messenger - please!

I've said my piece... Come'on, let me have it! Apparently pointing out bad habbits in here, is frowned upon.

I know the person by several years of reputation here and elsewhere, and I'm confident your assumptions wouldn't bare out.  Additionally, I think it's best to avoid making personal comments about one another because that's where things really spiral out of control.  And if someone feels we've offended them then making a sincere public or private apology can easily correct things.

It is a difficult thing, trying to keep forums organized with accurate information. Moderators (of which I am one here and elsewhere) can't do it all, it really takes everyone in the community to make an extra effort to help out.  For my part, I try to search the Internet for similar information before posting (Google indexes all flight sim forums) and if a thread already exists somewhere then I will simply link to it if I believe it would be beneficial to have it posted elsewhere.

I don't think it occurred in this particular thread, but all too often we see people become obsessed with learning some information and being the first to post it - more than a game, they are devoted to it and attach some level of importance if not self worth to it.  I watched something extremely similar happen in a seasoned group where the offenders where in there late 20's and 40's and it made me sick. Competing and attaching self worth over who knows what and who knows who? That's really speaks to the state of someone's mental health.

If release or any other information is already reported, and you think it's important to share that information elsewhere then just link to it without re-posting the information from the link. That helps to avoid many problems and inaccurate perceptions.

Best wishes to everyone.

Look, I'm not going to debate this anymore. It's pointless and fruitless!
If you really don't know what I'm talking about - re-read your own post(s). 

@DaveCT2003 - Thanks! Wise words from a wise man!

Best wishes!

Check out the Majestic forum.  A member asks a simple valid question about the product being compatible with 4.1 and instantly gets jumped on.  Check it out for yourself.  I honestly can't believe this behavior is being defended.

Let's put this to bed now before it goes South and a moderator jumps in and closes it.

It has run its course. Let's just look forward to a product we've all been waiting for, and enjoy.
