  1. x-plane 11

    Just be patient, unless the plan has cahnged they were to do at least two projects on XP, one which is the DC6 by making it first in XP and then port it to FSX/P3D, and a second one which would be the other way around make it first on FSX/P3D and then port it to XP, which has yet to come and could be anything. We'll have to wait for anouncements. In the end both simulators are great each with their own pros and cons. P3D right now is still my main plateform, but I'm also one that would like more PMDG quality level products on XP, because on some area it just does much better, an example is the night environement which just always amazes me, also I'm really curious on when they'll get to use Vulkan/Mantle for rendereing as it could boost the performances significantly removing a lot of the overhead that there is with OpenGL/DirectX (below version 12). It's always good that their is two sims as it generate some competition, which can lead to interesting advances for us in the end :)
  2. Ahah yes it was a feature of the aircraft back in FSX :) Of course it's there in P3D because the aircraft is much "lighter" than the heavies in terms of animations and all that allow to have rain effects on the windshield :)
  3. The question is did you uninstall before installing the update. It is required for the latest update that you remove the aircraft through the Windows "Add or remove programs" screen. And then once uninstalled you should install the new version. If you simply ran the latest updater and chose Repair or Modify it could be a reason for the issue.
  4. 1. Not usefull what's the point of updating the model if it has no impact on performances, fuel consumption and all, I believe if they were to make it that would not be just an aesthetical update. That being said the 737 is now an old product I'm not sure it's worth going back to it add one option like this and not make other updates, maybe the Max version for example. Or maybe there would be a 737NG v3 who knows. 2. Did you check the AVSIM files, because there seem to be a lot of repaints available for PMDG so it might already be there.
  5. Let them do their work. They have made the DC6 which you can already enjoy in X-Plane since more than a year, they have just ported it to FSX/P3D and there should be some maintenance update going back to the XP version at somepoint. Then they are on their plan which they explaine quite ssometime ago that after this product made for XP first and then for FS/P3D they would do anbother product for FS/P3D first that would then get ported to XP. After which they will be able to have a good knowledge on what's the best way to have the same addons on both simulators. So it's not usefull to demand or ask, they have already their process for this. Unless something has changed. When there is some news on that front they'll tell us :)
  6. Well they did gave information not so long ago if you read the pinned post Robert's made in the last couple of weeks. On July 23th the latest information was : So it's progressing along well and is approaching beta testing, meaning there will still be quite sometime before it get's released. We probably will have information once the beta testing actually starts. I don't think there is anything worth to be added by PMDG before that.
  7. I'm lucky enough to have a good job that allow me to spare a good amount of money each month, so with a good reserve it's no big deal, and then I just spare as usual and the "hole" will be filled quite quickly.
  8. Hahah not so much a beating :) Imagine mine after I actually purchased the P3D version of the 737NG and expension, 777-200LR and extension and 747-400 all at once once they started getting available. Was meant also to avoid a bit of the transaction fee as I'm not in the US :)
  9. You can probably speed up things for deactivating by turing down all P3D settings. As I suppose you're about to remove P3D for your system.
  10. I think it completely depends on carrier. as an Example with Air France in my country, there are 4 classes (Premiere/Business/Premium/Economy), and even on the same varient 777-300ER they have 4 configurations : 296, 322, 381, 468. You can have a look at http://www.seatguru.com it has details cabin plans for a lot of airlines and aircraft type
  11. Well I guess it's all down to if the SDK provide access to this information, which I think it don't, I believe tehre is button event to click on the buttons, but I'm not sure there is something to read that. But I don't think there is anything for this. Why not taking a simpler approach by entering a ZFW and Fuel values, the maximum for these values do not change so you can have on your side the maximums predefined in your acars system. Because in the end the numbers of passengers I believe would not really matter if you computer a PAX/Baggage weight and then turn it into ZFW maybe the CDU won't show the same number of passenger as you, but I don't think it's important, as it's only the weight that matters for flight performances.
  12. Great news, well updates on their way :) Really looking forward the 747-8 ad the X-Plane update it would be specially good to have the state buttons like I've seen on the FSX/P3D DC6 but also if that is possible mouse wheel support for the autopilot trim, I regularly have the issue of thinking to make a small change and it does a huge change which makes it a big descent/climb rate and quite hard to get back to the correct rate of descent, or at least takes some time :)
  13. Well the question is not really surprising, but it means that either both sims are installed, or that there are leftovers of the previous P3D version. If the installer find only one P3D version (in my case I have only v4 and never had v3) it don't ask this question and simply install directly. The question should popup only if both sims are installed so that users can install properly in either or both sims depending on what he wants to do.
  14. I know I don't ask an update right now or anything but I think they can share if they plan on updating it or not, I don't want any kind of dates or details. Just a simple yes/no it just would be nice to know it will continue to be supported as it's the first product that got outside of the P3D/FS world. And has not received any updates ever since. And I'm realy looking forward the third tutorial as well.
  15. By the way do you have plans for updating the XP version with the 11 version as some things have changed an apparently not everything is perfectly right though it is still quite flyable :)
