  2. I felt like I needed to say something to the PMDG team in recognition for their DNA which is that of absolutely outstanding products for the flight sim enthusiast. I recently had to reinstall all my PMDG addons to update them, and decided that while I was at it, I might as well reinstall the MD11 even though it is no longer supported by PMDG. Whilst I understand that the MD11 was a commercial failure both in real life and for its PMDG counterpart - it makes it no less of an incredible aircraft, a bundle of innovation way ahead of its time in terms of its systems and automations, only let down by an aging airframe and increasing oil prices that made it uneconomical to run. Today I flew the MD11 again for the first time in maybe five years. And it was fantastic. Yes, the graphics have aged slightly. Yes, some pmdg innovations of recent years are absent that make it a slightly more quirky addon to use. But from a systems and programming perspective.. what a beast. It flew an approach into Gdańsk (don’t ask why) absolutely perfectly. Despite the winds the descent path was followed spot on, respecting speed and altitude constraints all the way down. The controls on Final approach were smooth and clean, and just after touchdown it really felt like you had to get some brakes on to slow the beast down from its (nowadays) unusually fast touchdown speed. If you ignore the slightly aged graphics in the (fully functional) 3D cockpit, this addon is still an outstanding product to spend hours and hours on, displaying that PMDG smooth DNA, which immerses you fully in the aircraft, completely suspending disbelief, because everything just works as it should. When I compare this to more recent addons, such as a certain 787 that has recently come out (and is a respectable product), it still blows them out of the water entirely. Give that aircraft a graphic refresh and you could sell it for a 100 bucks all over again. Though admittedly, no-one would buy it, because seemingly no-one really cares. Shame. It’s a beautiful, beautiful piece of machinery that MD11. Unlike that other certain 787, it’ll never blow through an altitude constraint. It’ll never display pounds instead of kilos. It’ll always show the right flap and approach speeds. It’ll always follow its flight director as it should. It’ll always make you feel like you truly are on that flight deck with tons of cargo behind you. So I must say a big, enormous thank you to the PMDG team, veterans and newcomers, for the work they do. I never reached my dream of becoming an airline pilot. But PMDG’s product are as close as I’m ever gonna get, and it just feels like it’s pretty damn close. Whether I’m flying their 2009 vintage or their 2017 novelty, it just always feels just as close to the real thing. Can’t wait to see what’s next.
  3. Hello, I have the MD11 in P3D and I want FS2Crew for it. Before I buy it, can anyone who has the old Lady, FS2Crew and P3D test it. Thank You
