[29SEP18] PMDG 747 QOTSII Update 3.00.9019 Released via OC

Recommended Posts

Captains,

(Sorry for all the acronyms in the header...  Someone at AVSim decided to crimp the title character allowance so you can't relay enough information to make it relevant unless you condense everything.)

A few moments ago we released an update for the PMDG 747-400 Queen of the Skies II and PMDG 747-8 Queen of the Skies II Expansion products for both the FSX and Prepar3D platforms.

This update is primarily targeted at smoothing a few items that came up in the days post-release, with a bit of performance enhancement and some other detail cleanup as well. 

You can get this update by running the PMDG Operations Center, then clicking on the settings wheel.  You should see a flag there to alert you of the present of the updates, and you can install from there.  Note that if you have FSX and FSX/SE, or if you have Prepar3D v3 and Prepar3D v4 installed side-by-side, you may see multiple flags.  We recommend you just click through all of them to install the available updates, and then close the operations center, and re-open it.  Then you will likely see some flags to alert you that your liveries may need repair in the 747-8.

Once you have done this, you are all set and can head off to fly!

If you ever wonder whether you are up-do-date with the latest, simply run the PMDG Operations Center, select your product, and then click on VERSIONS.  This will tell you the most current version available and the version you have installed for each product and expansion.

Thank you for your support of this (and all!) PMDG products-  you guys have really been incredibly kind and supportive of this one.  She is simply a magnificent airplane and it makes us very happy to see how much you are enjoying this new expansion to the PMDG 747 product line!

The change list for this update is as follows:

Thanks for the update. The change of payload after entering the fuel was puzzling me.

By the way Robert,  what's the best way to get to you when I've noticed a wrong system simulation in the 747-8? Via Forum or via support ticket? It's about the refueling logic with high amounts of fuel.

ticket for sure! FINALLY, I thought the changing payloads after loading fuel was just me. Was driving me up the wall.

Certainly a support ticket, but I have to ask, does it appear to be anything like this?

Is that list of updates only for the -8?

I'm not buying the expansion anytime soon and I'm wondering if I need to install this just for the -400. I still haven't even installed the stand alone installer when the -8 was released.

I'm lazy and I have a 4 day coming up....I dont want to mess around with reinstalling stuff at the moment.

This morning I was fooling with the payload to get under a TO weight restriction. The GW kept rising, and rising, and rising. There was no way to get it down, even after going to empty. This was in the -8. I haven't checked it since the update today.

gotta wait to update, I'm over the Pacific in the 748 (just passed 18S70) on my way to YSSY from KLAX - about 4 /12 more hours😁

Looks like some things for the -400 were updated.

Copy. I was wondering if anybody else had seen this, but nobody else responded, so I wasn't sure.

I saved, exited, updated, repaired liveries, and then reloaded. No issues.

I haven't been able to get myself to use pause or save while in flight since the 1980's when reading books like Realistic Commercial Flying With Flight Simulator by John Rafferty (Compute Books) among several others. There were times when pausing was needed to read a little ahead, but even then it felt like sacrilege to pause .🤓

Coming up on VESUN , about 860 NM to go, I can wait 2 more hours 🤩

Weird, although version check tells me there's an update, the notification page is empty, anyone else seeing this?

Hi I haven't touched my laptop since the 747-8 was released. The first update required us to download new installers and this one will be done through the ops center... my question is do I have to download the installer if I haven't done any of the updates or does this second update bypass the need to downlod the installer?

Hi everyone.  When I check the version an update is available and I go to install then it does a bit of installing for 5 seconds then disappears and says I need to update again?  Running P3d V4.

there where two updates one for the -400 and one for the -8.

Robert would a better course of action be to have QOTS clean installation rather going through the OC as I’m still on the old version from your previous post to uninstall old version of QOTS and install new version from your account?Im afraid I’m getting a bit confused now must be the old age.😀

Regards.

You have to download the full installer, uninstall the old version, install the new, reboot, run P3D (important!) and them run OC to check if you still have the microupdate required.

If you downloaded the -400 update from the 22nd (which you needed for the -8 to run), then you can just update via the OC, no need to do any uninstalling etc. That's the whole point of the OC!
