I'm not searching "Hong Kong trader" pics in airliners.net touching myself in a lustful way(?) waiting for the release. No, I'm not.

Best of both worlds?

Hi guys, so if I'm reading this right, current owners of the 400 will have to pay $5 (P3D) to download the new build of the 400 prior to installing the 800??

It's a "-8", not an "800".

Great news, thanks a lot. I could not imagine myself so keen to looking forward uninstalling a PMDG machine  😇

Is it just the -8 being released this weekend, and not the Global Operations programme too? Kyle mentioned some of the programme’s functionality with the -8 in his video but I assume that RSR would have mentioned that specifically if both were coming out at the same time.

Just 747-8 possibly, Still no release for sure. You won't need GFO to use the new functionality. If GFO isnt there it just simulates in the background from what I caught of the video.

It may be another couple days or more before we see the 747-8

Sure - I only ask because I’m afraid, although it looks beautiful, the -8 doesn’t quite fit into my simming agenda, so to speak, so I shan’t be partaking of it - but the Global Ops sounds very, very interesting and could be a lovely addition to the 744.

John,

PMDG Global Flight Operations is not included in the PMDG 747-8.  Global Flight Operations is a separate product and will unveiled formally soon.

We did make some changes to the 747 product line in preparation for bringing Global Flight Operations to market- which is perhaps what you saw.

Hope that helps!

@rsrandazzo Will we see the new 747-400 installer at the same time as the 747-8 or will we be able to download early so Im not stuck with slow download speeds for a giant download?

 

Or will that be kept a secret

Mark,

We will tell you when.

We distribute via amazon cloud services, so there won't be any strain on our end...   Now YOUR pipeline is between you and your service provider.  😎

Thanks for that information RSR.

 

I am rather glad that GFO is a separate piece of software which means I can evaluate if I would like it instead of being forced upon me so to speak.

Can you please release this right now? I am almost finished with my South-African Sauvignon Blanc bottle and I`ll not be able to taxi to the active in about...5 minutes.

Thanks

EST sucks. Only UTC matters. But unfortunately that's over already for today 😥

Robert, feel proud... I've budgeted extremely conservativly this year. Although there have been several great releases this year from different developers I have managed to stay black every month. Now I was on vacation during the first week of September (Austria is an amazing country to ride passes <3) and it wasn't cheap. You will make me go into the reds for the first time in 2018. 😐 But I just can't wait for October. Too excited.

I have 2 questions, Robert S. Randazzo:

 

1. For those who already own the 744, the upcoming update comes at extra-cost, or those 744 updated prices are just for new customers?

 

2. Are you able to reasonably tell when the EFB will be available for the 777 family? Say next month, Christmas... And yes, that's my favourite, my beauty T7!!

Sergio,

1: There are no charges for the 747-400 upgrade.  The price of the product is increasing for those who do not already own it.

2: No estimates.  We are working on the 747 right now!
