So what you are basically saying is that less then 10% of the 747-400 fleet was actually in the air when I wrote that post? That's not a very profitable way to run a business, now is it? If you were interested in informing yourself, you would already know how to find that out for yourself (hint - look up flightaware or any other similar service). If you makes you feel better, there are currently 75 747-400's registered as airborne. 

You just don’t get it do you I am not wasting my time with someone that really doesn’t understand nothing about business or money carry on your rant by yourself

Sigh.....I bet when RR created this post he had thoughts of it being an uplifting, informative post showing the marvels of progressive technology updates to our hobby that PMDG has been fortunate enough to bring to our community.

Instead it seems to have quickly spiraled into yet another "I know this, you don't know that, Are you going to fix this/that in this update?" kinda' thread.

Makes me wonder why they even bother posting anything new and exciting anymore....and makes me re-evaluate why I even take the time to provide repaints for a community that seems to only be interested in what they DON'T have and come here to complain or try to one-up another forum member.

I think I need a break from this group....I was enjoying this thread with an ORIGINAL topic that is particularly interesting to painters who'll be picking up repaints when PMDG releases the update.  I'll check back when I get a notification in my PMDG Manager that there is a new update to the Queen.  You guys enjoy your off-topic, one-up conversations.

Who said that the ground effect is messed up? As far as I know there is no such issue

Couldn't figure out how to edit my post (if that's possible on here) but I'll do that in the future, thanks!

Ahhh, so it's been fixed. Well, looks like I won't need to worry about re-learning landing the 748 then!

And you have said that the JS41 and even the Woodpidgeon were going to happen and that the next release of X would be soon. Sorry Chris, what PMDG say and what you do do not always line up, which is absolutely fine. Anybody, and any company, can change their mind. And before anybody chimes in with suggestions that the MD-11, JS41 or even the WoodPidgeon are unused or out of date, can I just point out that at time of writing, out of the almost 700 747-400's that were built, there are less then 50 in the air and this time next year that number will be significantly lower.

 

As of January 2019, there are 372 B744s in serivce (and 130 -8s). For comparison, there are less A380s in service; however, everyone seems to be in great demand for a "study-level" A388. Nevertheless, I do find this aircraft adequate for the market and is an overall joy. 

Cheers,

Jordan Davison

Let it go, my friend.

History of this thread says, that you can't reason with this man.

Let him be... 🙂

Don't mind Anders, he can get a bit touchy when he thinks his religious beliefs are being challenged. You are of course right, there are far fewer A380's in service, however of the 234 that were built (wikipedia), 98 are currently airborne (flightaware) at time of writing which reflects the newness of the airframe, which probably influences its popularity. The 49 airborne 747-400's out of 694 that were built reflects the fact that the 747 is much older and is rapidly approaching end of life, they haven't been made since 2005 so even the newest ones are almost three quarters of the way through their service life. That does not make them any less iconic or reduce the demand for study level sim, but it does put into perspective various claims about relative importance, given that there are 42 airborne MD-11's.

And before somebody chimes in with a ridiculous Boeing vs Airbus comment, I am fully aware that A380 production is also in the process of shutting down. And yes, I would love to have a study sim-level sim of the A380 to PMDG quality, though personally, I think the A350 is more important to the future of the aviation industry.  I already have study level sim's from PMDG for the 747, 737 and 777 so I don't need them again. Yes of course each iteration is an improvement of over the previous generation, but the wow factor has gone.

No one cares mate. Move on.

He is the same fellow who, in another thread regarding 747-400 autopilot and flight director functions, told two experienced 747-400 pilots (one of whom is a retired senior training captain and type rating examiner), that their knowledge of how certain systems work on the aircraft are “opinions” and “guesswork”...

Let me attempt to bring a bit of levity back into the discussion by referencing our inside jokes:

  1. We use SoonTM as a joking reference to the inevitability of software having an issue that exposes another issue, causing timelines to slip.
  2. The Woodpigeon is a joking reference to throw people off of the trail of any secret projects, or to bring a joke into the occasionally all-too-serious "PMDG NEEDS TO MAKE X" threads.
  3. Pigeonworks is a joking reference to "secret project divisions" within a larger company, most notably Skunk Works within LM.
  4. The pogo stick / Segway is a joking reference to the common Easter Egg.

I'm finding it comical that someone used point 2 as an actual argument, unironically.

Here's something for a laugh:

Carry on...
