lol definitely not possible, but TFDi definitely would have a leg up on creating an MD-11 for P3D, were they interested in doing it...

I recently took a look at SkySimulations MD-11 doe P3Sv4, they have a good start on the project!

So much love for the MD-11. I hear you @OP

Shame there's nothing even close to PMDG's MD-11 in v4. Maybe someday.

The SkySim MD-11 isn't bad for what it is. The dev is supposedly releasing a livery pack for it soon, which will be nice, because it comes with just 7 liveries.

I hope that TFDI will embark on this project someday, really...

Same here. I've seen them every (work) day for the last 20 years... Meanwhile we have devs repeating the same planes (and scenery) over and over...

I'd love to see TDFI do a 64-bit MD-11.

I may spring for the SkySim MD-11, if I knew I could implement the ISG FMC with it.

Yes, you can.... There is a thread around here someplace that discusses it in considerable detail.....

Admittedly, i'm not the best at dredging up old threads with the relevant info, sorry... ☹️

Well, I hope the finish fixing and updating the B717 before they think of yet another product.  Don't get me started on this!  🙂

No that's ok -- I will find it.  I've already set up the CLS DC-10 to use the ISG FMC so it's not a big deal to me.  

But that is great news!  And I assume the SkySim MD-11 is properly following the LNAV and VNAV (or "PROF" to be technical hehe) of the ISG FMC.   Great news to me, thanks.

I'm not sure about that Rhett, but if you can find the thread I referenced, there is a wealth of info regarding this and some other ISG add on's as replacements for the SkySim gauges...

Good luck, and let us know how it goes...😁

Sorry, Dave. But I have to disagree: apart from the look, the SkySimulations MD-11 has nothing of the real aircraft. Sounds are just terrible, FMC is not there at all, and systems are not correctly simulated (if at all). I tried the addon, was disappointed and deinstalled it. It is no serious simulation of the MD-11. I doubt that they will update it to a level that it would be bearable. For me it was indeed a bad start on the project.

PMDG created a milestone with their MD-11 and it was one of the aircrafts that was extremely close to the real one when it comes to the systems, sounds and feel. It is a shame that they are not adapting the 32bit DLLs for V4.

The lack of a proper study-level MD-11 in P3Dv4 is the reason why I will jump on Xplane. Rotate develops a proper MD-11 at the moment which hopefully will fit everybody needs.

Cheers,

Chris

I understand.  That's why I said they have a good start on the MD-11 (and they actually do).  Since I work on the development side of things, I can see where their MD-11 is and what needs to be done to improve it - and I hope they will and I think they will.  Moreover, they're the only ones to date who have begun work on an MD-11 for P3Dv4.  Put another way... I've seen the start of a LOT of initial products (that the public doesn't see), and they always start like this.  In fact, the only product I haven't seen that fit this mold was the Dash 8, back a full 6 years before public release, and look at her today!

I'd have referred to their existing RC as an Alpha, but when one doesn't have a large amount of funding this is just how such products start out.  Given I'm a huge MD and MD-11 fan, I am happy to support their efforts, but their MD-11 does have a ways to go before it's prime time.  I'm going to see what we can do to help them out.

My very best wishes to you.
