Good day!
As we get closer to the FlightSimExpo i made a poll to guess what the secret project will be from pmdg.

Just for fun.It has nothing to do with reality.Lets keep it as simple as possible.Thank you


(where is my poll i made?)

I want to vote twice. One vote for 737-8 and 787, and also for the airbus series.... hahahahaha

Um...hi. Yes. Excuse me, but...

Where's the Woodpigeon entry? :ph34r:

Not worth doing unless you model the spring tension in accordance with the principles of Hookes Law.

(Seriously, google Hooke's Law - I am amazed at the extent to which the properties of a spring have been evaluated by science!)

Back in the 70s I think, Flying magazine did a "pilot report" article on a gas powered pogo stick, literally a two-stroke single piston engine that was a powered pogo stick.  The problem they had "test flying" was they'd laugh so hard they'd fall off.  Springs played a vital role in Leonardo's design of flying machines in the 16th century so don't discount the importance of springs.

Maybe the Lockheed C-5 Galaxy? I don’t think anybody would expect military aircraft from PMDG and it’s certainly huge. Although I just don’t see PMDG taking 10 years on it.

Is there any other way to model a spring?

Now that would be a welcome surprise. Not that long to wait...

Well we wouldn't want them just relying on the native P3D spring modelling. I'd want to see them do their own complex algorithms outside of the sim. 😆

Hooke’s Law is pretty simple. Deflection is proportional to force. It says nothing about things like friction and damping which I suspect you are referring to. I don’t know what P3D’s spring model is but if it’s anything other than Hooke’s Law I’d be surprised.

Kevin, I was making a joke with respect to the log running PMDG pogo stick gag. 😉 I have no idea how Prepar3D models springs, or indeed if it even does.

Honestly? 

When RR has made it quite clear that it would going to be something completely different to what people are used to expect from PMDG about 25/26 % is voting it'll be another Boeing ?

Com'on ! it has to be something spectacular, Why else would they allow multiple threads about the same subject to co-exist building up the tension, the speculation. It means something extremely spectacular is going to happen, not yet another aircraft.

Right?

Agreed, not just a new plane.   It sounds like something more.  I suggested in one of the countless posts on this topic it will be a PDMG Brewed Beer, a natural supplement to add a special challenge to those ILS landings you thought you had mastered. 

I didn't vote because none of the listed options sounded viable.

I simply have no idea.  But waiting for the reveal is exciting and I am looking forward to hearing all about it, even if circumstances this year prevent me from the usual Las Vegas Debauchery I've become accustomed to.

I'm not allowed to give a serious guess, am I?

I'll go with St Elmo's Fire simulation.  Or maybe snow and sleet on the windscreen.

Sorry Mark, I misunderstood. 😳  In my defence P3D does model springs so I thought you were serious.

The release of the NGX v3. I think that would be the first time they ever release something without any previews or information. And he said that it's something they've been wanting to do since 2008 and hence they have never done that before. Plus I think he said it's going to be some sort of product release?

But they said that it has never been mentioned before and that no one outside of PMDG knows about it's existence. They already sort of announced the NG3 so I think that rules it out of the contenders.
