TFDi pricing for MD-11 announced

I admit to being somewhat puzzled by this PBR textures fetish that seems to be sweeping the flight simulation community. I appreciate that they are an improvement over existing textures, but I get the feeling that some flight simmers see it as a "PBR textures or no purchase for me" issue. Maybe it is because I only run P3Dv4 @ 1080p resolution on a 24" widescreen monitor, but I personally think that the non PBR textures in the VCs of my PMDG 737 and 777 look excellent.

The lighting that comes from pbr in my opinion can’t be matched by the older style of aircraft. The original ngx and current 777 look extremely dated to me.

$90? Mmmm... too much for my liking (and my ever devaluating ARS). I can wait till a Black Friday.

There are so few planes in my FSX/P3D hangar (and none in my MSFS one) for which I paid full price. I'll wait and see in the meantime.

If it's 717 quilty, AKA no failures and lacks some FMC function, it's kinda over priced IMO....

 

TFDI are marketing this as beyond their 717 quality i.e. another step up.

I think it was at FSExpo last year they claimed the MD-11 will be "beyond Study Level", whatever this really means.

 

My own interpretation is, could this be quotes "Training Level" ?? That may be possble if they are releasing this Extended Simulation Package add-on.

I would be interested to hear what everyone else thinks about what "beyond study level" means to them?

I am a big fan of the MD-11 and looking forward to getting it.  Compared to other aircraft of this quality from other developers, the price seems reasonable.  Having played "you bet your job" in the a sim every six months  for way too long, I most likely will pass on the Extended Simulation Package.

My wingman from Vietnam flew the MD-11 for almost 20 years and had a great saying about it - "It's like my ex, fun to fly but unforgiving." 🤣

Who was that AVSIM member who always mentioned the PMDG MD-11 in just about every post? Is he still here? If so, I am sure that he would be interested in this product.

Less enthusiasm from the 'other' sub-forum and elsewhere online, than on this thread.

Questioning of the length of time it took TFDi to get the 717 to a mature state. That, and the fact that pricing has been announced before the usual wave of promo screenshots and videos of the product in action, is not sitting well for some people.
I'd like this to be my next aircraft purchase, but I'm not convinced at the moment.

they've had some really cool live streams where they have given a nice glimpse into the airplane.  My only question is trying to figure out if this is a near or medium term release.

Not on their website, nor their Twitch and YouTube channels, it seems.
If they've been uploaded to FB and/or Discord, it's up to developers to remember that putting content on easy to view platforms gets wider engagement.

It was thru their discord and on twitch.  they've had atleast a couple. But yes i think youtube is the better place

Yes, that project is moving along. No news of a release date yet but I  am just pleased they are continuing to work on a new product for P3D.

Looking forward to flying the 3 -holer when the time comes!

For me the price is acceptable for a solidly good addon. I have the 717 and really like it. However I remember how long it took TFDi to get the 717 right after initial release.
