[16NOV17] PMDG DC-6 Cloudmaster Update and some important NOTAMs

Recommended Posts

Captains,

A few moments ago we pushed a very small update for the PMDG DC-6 Cloudmaster for FSX/P3D users.  This update gives you a couple of cleanup details that the development team thought you would like to have since they were "sitting around collecting dust."

You can obtain the update via the Operations Center, and you can see the change list items in the same location as well, but I have included it for you here for simplicity:

PMDG DC-6 Cloudmaster - BUILD 1.20.8430 (Released 15NOV17) [ View Issues ]
==========================================================================
- 0006465: [Virtual Cockpit - Animation/Functionality/Click-Spots] FO side trim indicator doesn't move
- 0006474: [Systems Behavior/Functionality] CHT during TO is getting higher with colder OAT
- 0006519: [Documentation] Unlock PDF documents

 

NOTAM #1:  Monday Server Updates:

On 13NOV17, we updated our eCommerce system, and with this update newer, enhanced privacy measures have been put into place.  The next time you sign in, you may be asked to reset your password and an email confirmation will be sent to your registered email account in order to confirm the change.

If you do not receive the email, we have a few recommendations for you to follow:

Make certain to check the email that you registered as your PMDG eCommerce account email.  This is the email to which the confirmation link will go.

Check your junkmail/spam filter

Exempt @precisionmanuals.com from your spam filter.

If have trouble, please contact us here at support - but please try these recommendations first.

 

NOTAM #2: Legacy Product Activation Offline

On 13NOV17, we implemented a significant upgrade to our eCommerce system which modernized the encryption methods used by our internal systems.  Shortly after this update we became aware of the fact that the older activation method employed by our legacy (Pre 2009 Publication Date) products was incompatible with the new levels of security.

While we officially ended support for the last of these legacy products in January of 2015, we do feel it is important that you should be able to install the product and operate it if you have a legitimate license to do so. As such, we are dedicating development time to updating the activation method used by these older products in order to ensure customer access to them for years to come.

In the mean time, we apologize for the inconvenience, but we promise to keep working on a solution.

 

NOTAM #3: Man, oh MAN do you need to see what we are working on.  :-)

We have been holding back on you a bit, as we want to keep a few things close to the vest, but we are rapidly nearing the time when we can start to talk with you about what is coming.  Some stuff you have never imagined, some stuff you probably never expected, and some stuff that will leave you wondering whether we were reading your mind...

I am excited to be able to begin showing off the 747-8, which is rapidly nearing testing.  Flying a 747 around with the use of an electronic checklist is simply a fantastic experience, and some of the other goodies packed into this product will really be fun to show you.

Don't wander too far off...

This might not be what most people are excited about in your post, but to me this kind of thing is what separates decent vendors and online stores from the ones I stop dealing with. I have a few older PMDG birds, one or two even on CD/DVD, and whilst I may not use them a lot, if I paid to use 'em, I should be able to do so. Bravo sir.

Fantastic! So Boomer and I get our 767's (Dam I'd love to fly it around my home in QF colours...  A sorely missed bird here.) and I also get a 757? :tongue:

But as Chock said, you going out of your way to allow for people to use older products is something that we really shouldn't need to commend people for, it should be what all developers do. (But because I'm a victim of products that I've paid for that no longer work because developers won't allow for the program to run anymore - good on you.)

I also look forward to the 747-8 and great (and realistic - unlike my dreams of a 757/767) news in the future!

Did they buy the QualityWings 737 CL?

Doubt that...

I'm still hoping for a 737 MAX. An LED upgrade (strobes, landing light etc) for the 737NG would be nice as well...
