  1. Impressive. Great job PMDG. I'm interpreting this release as between Christmas and New Year. Only fair to thank Robert, Kyle, Vin et al.
  2. Happy New Year Robert, and all at PMDG, I love your products which I have enjoyed immensely for many years and hope to do so for many more. I can wait as long as needed for any updates - just started a SIA flight from Seattle to Hong Kong which I would have liked to carry out with the new updates, whatever they may be??? There was an old adage in England when I started out in my career - 'Say what you mean and mean what you say'. I know that you prefaced it with 'expect' - if you'd have said ' between Christmas and Easter 2019' you'd have been covered. A few more hours in 2018 for you in the USA before you need to dig out the body armour. Once more, Happy New Year to all.

    Engines Off during taxiing

    A neat summary and intuitive for those of an engineering background. The greater clearance for FOD damage is less obvious but equally important.

    Full Lap, Lap??

    Thanks all, for your replies. I never get the message on lift off from the runway - only occasionally when I'm exiting the runway after landing. I do always set the Stabilizer Config on pre-flight set up, so presumably this is why I don't hear this call out when taking off.. I just wondered what she was saying and if I was hearing her message correctly.
  6. Every now and then I take a flight in the MD-11, one of my favourite PMDG aircrafts with, arguably, one of the best definition fuselages and liveries. There is, however, one call out which has always puzzled me because I can't quite make out what the female voice is saying. It occurs after landing, I think, when I have forgotten to disconnect the auto throttle. When I'm trying to exit the runway the voice call out says 'Full lap, lap' and keeps on repeating it. Is this what she is saying and, if so, what does it mean? I've tried looking in the manual but can't locate where it might be explained. Anyone know?

    Chase Plane and PMDG

    He just has. I haven't got Ezdok. I can't find a straightforward, easy to follow tutorial on how to set it up, but it's one I've been toying with for ages. Might wait for Ezdok v3 and then try again.

    747-8 Airport moving map

    OK. Thanks for comments. I'd come to the same conclusion myself. So it looks like I'd better make some more hangar space in my 747 fleet!

    747-8 Airport moving map

    I was just about to hit the purchase button for the FSX 747-8 in my PMDG account, but when I read posts like this I wonder would it be worthwhile waiting a few days/weeks until a fix is found. Is it just an issue with P3D or does it affect FSX as well? Like a number of you I have a load of Aerosoft sceneries - EDDF, EGLL etc. and I don't want to find the taxiways unusable on the AMM. I also don't like messing around with set ups that affect the other sceneries I have. Reading all the above I don't know where a solution lies and I'm not pointing fingers antwhere.

    Current 747 Passenger Routes

    Thanks. This has given me an idea for a flight to check this out. I usually travel with either a random or a full load of passengers. Never thought of simulating a flight giving the crew a ride back to a home station.
  11. Is this a P3D only expansion? What about FSX? All mention on the EFB is about P3D.

    PMDG 777-200ER for 2018?

    I had assumed that the 300ER was the longer range, higher capacity version of the 777 family. Hence PMDG's reason for its choice of the LR/ER versions. Seems not so - the 200LR is the lower capacity longer range version. Explains now how it handled my CYVR-YSSY flight with no problems.

    PMDG 777-200ER for 2018?

    Interesting information. So I wonder why PMDG decided to go with the 200LR if only a few were produced and the 200ER seems the more popular model?

    PMDG 777-200ER for 2018?

    I didn't realise this. I thought extended range meant extended beyond a long range version. So what constitutes NR - Normal range? Slightly confusing. Whatever, I don't think more engine choices would tempt me to purchase this, unless it came as free add-on. Also, would it be worth PMDG's while just producing more engine variations. I'd concentrate on a totally new plane.

    PMDG 777-200ER for 2018?

    I've just flown 15 hrs comfortably in a 200LR from Vancouver to Sydney. Why do I need a 200ER when I don't want to fly longer routes than this and I already have a 300ER to choose from? (Assuming I'm interpreting LR as Long Range and ER as Extended Range correctly). Is it a different flight deck layout, different engine sounds, or something else? I'm all for authenticity in replicating real world flight variants but if the only difference is psychological, or a slight variation in engine sound, then I'm happy to continue with the wonderful PMDG choices I have. I agree with Dan - too many choices.
