PMDG Update June 17th

Recommended Posts

LNAV V2 is almost ready, and will release with the -600 and be rolled into the existing -700 at the same time or shortly thereafter. Though he did not give a firm date, I suspect it will probably be 3 or 4 weeks.

Finally some great news regarding this. And not long to go for the 800.

Meanwhile PMDG is getting absolutely flamed in /r/flightsim

...and in every thread they are even mentioned in at Avsim.

Whats wrong with the “old” LNAV?

Among other things, I understand it doesn't do RF legs and DME arcs correctly and instead approximates them using a series of "synthesized" fixes that aren't in the actual procedure.

So much for biweekly updates (patches). 

If RSR gives you a timeline on anything, the best advice is to just ignore it and be surprised when, and even if, it happens.

Why there is no developer to develop Boeing aircrafts beside PMDG?

Really hope it will change soon, even if it's starting with older plane like the 707, 727 or older version of the 737, 747. Just to start some competition.

Yea, I thought the other day, "wouldn't it be great if Fenix decided to take the Prosim 738 and develop it out to complement its A320."

There is the BlueBird Sim + JustFlight collaboration 757 under development.
QualityWings is working on the 787 for MSFS too. They've gone dark as their initial release estimate (Q2 2021) was wildly inaccurate.

Now, they may not be as detailed as PMDG's products, we'll have to find out nearer their respective launches - I'm happy to wait for non-PMDG alternatives.

By the same people every time......

 

Glad to see the update coming, although have very few issue with it in it's current state. Last night flew LPPT to EGPF to EDDH without any issues whatsoever (other than the internet dying for 10 minutes - thanks Sky!)....

I hope so too, it's about time fresh blood is injected into the wolrd of Boeing aircrafts, and the "great recycling" comes to an end.

He gave an assurance over at PMDG that once the LNAV problem for the 737 is fixed for MSFS they will do the same for P3D. I’ll be setting a reminder for early August to check on progress. He did seem genuine on delivering.

I’m anxious for the efb. I was never an efb kind of person but after using it in the “other” airliner, I’m missing it in the 737.

So its fine to criticize MS/Asobo on a daily basis and some can't criticize PMDG if they are not happy with their current business model, Really? I have loved PMDG in the past and will probably suck it up and buy the 777 but i'm not touching any of their other products.

Ok thanks, I'll sleep better tonight knowing you're flight sim purchasing strategy.
