What will be the next project by PMDG?

All the same, it cannot - statistically - be held up as proof positive that the top response would be the best option.

Anyone who has played Assetto Corsa and remembers the Ferrari Pack "seventh car" selection result can testify to that :wink:

Just had a look at this and noticed it supports Oculus.

I'll see you all in 2020...

If you would like to suggest an alternative aircraft for them to deliver next, I would be very interested in hearing your suggestions but I must admit to getting quite bored with people just repeating that something wont or cant happen without offering anything better.

Hey, I share your enthusiasm for the MD-11.  This product was my first beta test with PMDG and like my first car I'm very fond of her.  Were there a market for this product, as a very small minority of the market believes there to be, then it would be great for PMDG to revisit the original design and see what could be salvaged.  It didn't sell as well as expected because the market is primarily interested in what they see today at the airport.... I think the number one request in the AVSIM PMDG Support Forum is for scimitar wing tips on the B737 even if its only cosmetic.... that, unfortunately, is the market.

major update to the NGX

Do we know anything as to whether it's a major update or a whole new addon?

Why does money always come first? PMDG has been making stacks. Sure, development is expensive. But for example; the DC-6 was made, nobody was interested, except RSR. Can't we just get one of those one time? Not something you'll make tons of money, but rather a flying memory filled of fsx nostalgia? I seriously wonder how didn't they analyze the new market, 2019 MARKET. A bit like QW's avro. Not very successful but great indeed, yet it has an unbeattable price-per-plane ratio. Devs didn't port it to make money, it's old and definetely would need a rework. But they made it for them, and the people that maybe flew onboard as a kid, or have spotted it since they are kids. Again, money isn't the only matter.

Kinda mean...but hey...

We made it more as a development project for a new sim: XPL, and then ported it into FSX/P3D.

True, but businesses can't run on rainbows and sunshine, either.

I see (from earlier thread) there are 737NG and 777 upgrades.  Does this mean the existing 737 and 777 are an incomplete project or it needs a  more accurate flight model?  Or are we talking about behind the scenes upgrades that deal with performance?

Paul, my number on top priority I wanna have it project is a revised FMS.   I want a FMS that uses ARINC 424 navdata, renders the magenta line like the real thing, creates a vertical profile that doesn't have huge discontinuities at some waypoints,  and an AFCS that will follow the RF segments.  This would impact everything but the JS41 and DC6.

My wants aside, because they don't mean squat, you must have missed the thread in which RSR talked about the future that included a replacement for the NGX and an incremental update to the 777.  Definitely not "incomplete" projects, I think you are being confrontational with that kind of questioning.

Complete new addon. Its name is NG3. It is an "update" of the NGX, but a different addon, if you look it in another sense. The way they describe the technologies that they will bring to the NG3 sound like they will model the MAX series

To be honest, I would be surprised if PMDG are not at least thinking about developing a 787. We all know that there is another 787 available (and I am considering it), but I keep asking myself questions like....

  • Can I save the full panel state?
  • Can I create a complete flightplan via the FMS?
  • Are all autopilot options available, and in good working order?
  • Does the FMS include a wide range of options to suit my personal requirements?

If a PMDG 787 was available, I would not need to ask any of these questions, because I would know that it has everything that I need (and probably a whole lot more).

I have it, but to be honest, I haven't had much time to do much flying with it.

I do remember doing enough research to know it could fit into Global Flight Operations (at Tier 2 right now, I think?) as it currently exists, so:

  • Yes
  • Yes
  • To my knowledge
  • I think there are some limited options, yeah

Appreciate the vote of confidence, but I'm also pretty open in saying that I think the team here appreciates the work other devs put into the community.

Believe it or not, the thing that stops me from having it is not being able to put winds in the FMS.  A long haul plane without winds loaded into it is going to give terrible fuel estimates, and it would sort of take me to far out immersion-wise.

Cheers,
