I haven't seen anything new about 747-8 for a long time.

Recommended Posts

I haven't seen any new information about 747-8 for a long time. I wonder how far it has been developed.

It’s probably  “percolating” in the background. Put on hold to work on that stupid GFO project...

No incoming... but the 748 cannot be delayed by the GFO project if both were cancelled. Obviously they are cancelled since there hasn't been news from PMDG in many weeks.  I guess they have moved on to trying to do something no one wants.

Like an MD-11 for example?

Probably PMDG developers went on holiday till September, chilling around on some beach and drinking cold cocktail spiced with salty tears of  anxiety of ours and watching and laughing at 3 topics per week that are opened on 748 matter.

Gents,

I removed a bunch of  irrelevant posts regarding the OP  question. Please keep it polite...

Outsider here, who doesn't really frequent this world of simulations much.

Ladies & Gents, just remember that the 747-8i release is bringing many new groundbreaking features to the world of simming, and PMDG is renowned for high quality, true to life aircraft. This level of hype and thirst for news is to be expected for a release of the -8i's stature.

I'm no marketing expert, nor am I inclined in any what whatsoever to call PMDG's marketing shots, but maybe some more news or teasers would do well for them.

On the other hand, PMDG seems to lay more along the lines of, "speak softly and carry a big stick." when it comes to their products. This, like all marketing strategies, is a double edged sword. There's much less accountability for release dates and things of the such, but you'll get incessant probes for information from the community, almost daily.

Oh well. More than likely, work continues and the 8i will be released sometime™. All we can do is patiently wait.

Mr Makris

Don't understand why you removed the post whether it was relevant or irrelevant.  I follow your rules and put my name.  You only said that you would delete posts if people hadn't put their name against it.

You post was without your name. This post is also without your name (We need real names first and last in the forum as per regulations).

Also I suggest to read the forum rules

I don´t know. Sure we don´t have anything to claim about you, PMDG. But honestly - you all see that we are waiting so much (just for news!)
Even tho that you are saying "if we have news, we will tell them", it would be nice just to hear if beta is going well, something is disturbing the beta test or what ever. Just SOMETHING.

Maybe you can write for us something down. Maybe this is cooling down the overall situation about the 747-8 😄

1. The rule is full names.

2. The rules are more comprehensive than that one rule. You can read the full set, here. Pay specific attention to the one that mentions being disagreeable simply to be disagreeable (#10). So far, I think that's all your posts have been, and I don't know why...

When things hit beta, as has been shown with every release I'm aware of, there's a pinned post. So far, looking at the top of the Gen Forum, I'm not seeing anything, so...implicit answer.

Believe me. As a group of guys who are really into airplanes and aviation, any time we have something in the works, we're itching to tell you about it. All the same, we provide news when there is news. So, if you want "something," then the "something" is that we have nothing to share right at this moment.

SoonTM

For those who are, so anxiously, waiting for "something" or "anything" from PMDG, I have discovered that this helps:

1) look out the window.

2) If it is sunny, put a hat on and go outside.

3) If it is raining , grab an umbrella and go outside.

You'll have lots of time to stay indoors, when PMDG comes out with "anything" or even better, "something".

Last weekend I was on a motorcycle trip, 6h in the black forest... you can’t imagine the number (and size lol) of smashed bugs on my helmet (not to speak about my bike xD). It took half an hour until I had cleaned the helmet up after the trip.

I’m sitting in an A319... virtually. AGAIN I have bugs on my windshield. Not even at home I‘m save from them flying too low. Maybe one day I‘ll start a collection. 

Guys... There‘s plenty of amazing addons available on the market. Let the guys from PMDG do their work and don‘t discourage them all the time. It really feels terrible when you create something great (like the 748, like GFO) put your love and passion into it, you really are eager to deliver it and there are always those as*holes around who attack you because your not as fast as they want it. The guys at PMDG might have the ego to deal with it but still it feels like you ask yourself why the f... you actually do that for these f...ers, there‘s money to earn with other businesses too. 

We get great addons here, just give them some space and let them do their work. And a „I already love your 744, I‘m looking forward to the -8, just go on“ isn‘t that difficult. And you obviously do, that‘s why you wait for it.... 😉
