  1. Thanks for the update. I have been thinking of a concept of a PMDG "Lite" line with the first models being the FSX models of the JS4100 and MD-11 ported over with PBR textures and updated for P3D V4.4... probably more like dreaming....

    Preparing for P3D V4.3

    Thanks Dave!

    Preparing for P3D V4.3

    Thanks DaveCT2003 for the link...so if V4.3 requires the scenery module be updated, any insights on what effect that will have on my installed sceneries?

    Preparing for P3D V4.3

    I am new to P3D and only switched from FSX earlier this year. I use the paid version of SimStarter to manage airports that load and I have a mix of airports that are loaded external to P3D (FSDT, Flightbeam, etc.) and some that are tied to the scenery config. My question concerns what steps with my scenery that I will need to take to update to V4.3. My understanding is that the sceneries that are tied to the external dll will automatically move with the update - but for those tied to the scenery config - is a reinstall required or can I take advantage of Simstarter to remap those airports? Thanks for any community support on this.
  5. I see GFO as a positive and something that increases the reality of the sim experience in a new way...as RSR stated, our flight world was extinguished everytime we shutdown. GFO provides an new option to simming that you can select or choose not to and jump into a persistent virtual world and aircraft life cycle. I don't fly VA so picking up an aircraft for a flight and having to know it's maintenance status, etc. adds immersion that you can dive into if you have the time...and not if you just want to fly and don't have the time. All good in my view.

    PMDG FSExpo Announcement

    Roadburner - not for sale anymore, but I flew the MD11 a great deal before shifting over to P3D V4.2 and if still flying FSX, would love to use GFO with the MD11...still miss it! Maybe P3D someday...

    PMDG FSExpo Announcement

    I didn't call it exactly, but I think I was close...PMDG Global Operations Center extension to the OPS Center. Great announcement PMDG! April 5 - I don't think a plane or a new sim, but an application to involve you more in the planning and flight particulars of PMDG (and maybe other) aircraft. I have been impressed by the amount of work that went into the Ops Center...but maybe a new extension of that technology that brings together scenario routing, cargo/passenger loading, fuel calculator, TOPCAT features,etc. that involves you more in the dispatching to flight conclusion level...brings together several tools that exist already in a PMDG slick package.

  9. Just made the jump to P3D V4.2 in anticipation of the -8 model availability this summer...I'll keep FSX for a while and I will miss the MD-11, but the shadow work and OOM prevention in P3D tipped the decision...and it runs decently with a 4790K and a 780GTX card

    FSX Crash Error creating child window

    Alan - I had a disk image with 1703 version and reverted back. Paul with tech support was very helpful and pointed out some KBs that had broken PMDG software or the sim. Good luck with this issue - hopefully the MS patch or update will fix the issue. Scott Robinson

    Kudos to PMDG Support

    A great post that I agree with...the support team is great! Scott Robinson

    What will be the next airplane from PMDG ?

    Still hoping PMDG would consider a C-17...yes it is military, but it is a Boeing and given foreign sales, it is not a tech transfer issue...and given how often the plane is used in humanitarian missions, you could argue it has been used more to deliver salvation and it is not a direct weapons platform... Scott Robinson
  13. I was impacted by this and PMDG tech support was very helpful in explaining what was going on and some potential mitigation tips to uninstall various offending KBs. Luckily I had made a disk image before updating W10 so I was able to return to a 1703 W10 version. In the future I will be reluctant to update W10 given the potential to break the sim and PMDG aircraft. Scott Robinson
  14. I thought I had this sorted out, but after reducing my Envtex texture levels, the situation returned while flying the Queen. The error dialog that froze FSX was "Error creating child window." and occurred when I was selected the FMC for enlarged direct entry view (2d). This follows the update to the latest Windows 10 version and update of all PMDG in the Ops center. Thanks for any ideas.

    [18OCT17] So what is going on at PMDG?

    Anthony - based on past add-ons, probably in the $30-$45 US range as a guess. Since we are not in beta just yet, plenty of days to set aside a little savings for the bird when it is ready. Scott R
