  1. PMDG Release the 747-400/8 QOTSII Update PMDG has just released their latest update for the 747 Queen of the Skies II. The new update is for both the 747 and the 747-8 includes the PMDG RainMaker for the 747-400 (P3DV4 only) and EFB derate thrust and assumed temperature take-off calculations for the 747-8. Other changes to build 3.00.9193 include fixes to the missing windows in the 748F, adjustment to the fuel tank behaviour on the 747-8 and also the seatbelt sign status bug. For the painters, there has been some adjustments to the paintkit, also. In total, there are nearly 70 changes to this version, all of which can be applied via the PMDG Ops Center. There hasn’t been a forum post from Robert at PMDG yet, but if you load up your PMDG Ops Center, you’ll be able to download the update and see the changelog. If you don’t own the 747 collection from PMDG, you can buy it from their store. Prices start at $99.99 for the base package on FSX, with the P3D version costing $139.99. The 747-8 package is available $49.99 (FSX) and $69.99 (P3D). You could also read our review on the PMDG 747-8 here. Thanks to Matt for the heads-up SOURCE INFO https://www.precisionmanuals.com/pages/products/P3D/747QOTSII.html https://fselite.net/news/pmdg-release-the-747-400-8-qotsii-update/
  2. FS2Crew - PMDG 747 QOTS II V1.3 Released with support for 747-8! Please Note: If you no longer wish to receive FS2Crew News, please click the 'Manage your Subscription" link found at the bottom of this newsletter. [4 January 2019] Priority NOTAM: Version 1.3 for FS2Crew: PMDG 747 QOTS II Edition Released! --Adds FREE support (although limited) for the new PMDG 737-8 models-- Please visit: www.fs2crew.com FS2Crew is happy to announce that Version 1.3 for the PMDG 747 QOTS II is now available. This is a significant update for the PMDG 747 QOTS II. It is a free update. The update is built into the main installer only. There is no stand-alone update installer. You do not need to uninstall the current version. To obtain the update, please login to your FS2Crew account (the link is on the top of the FS2Crew website), and click "COMPLETED ORDERS", then re-download and re-install the package again. You do not need to uninstall any earlier version. Change Log: Version 1.3 Fixes and Changes: The 8 model is now supported for free, but with some limitations: 747-8 USERS READ THIS PART CAREFULLY!!! 1. FS2Crew 747 QOTS II only supports the 8 model in P3D V4, not FSX. The reason is due to a panel window limit in FSX. Again, this is all the more reason to move to P3D V4. FSX is old and out-of-date. FSX is yesterday's news. It's time to move forward to P3D 64 bits. It's the future. Do NOT try manually copying the FS2Crew entries into the 8 model's panel.cfg in FSX or you'll mess up the plane! 2. Due to SDK, legal, and technical limits, the FS2Crew FO cannot interface with the Electronic Checklist System(ECL), so you'll be using the same paper checklists you used in the 400. 3. How to add FS2Crew to the 8 model in P3D V4: You must run the FS2Crew PMDG 747 QOTS II Config manager again and re-enable FS2Crew. This is necessary to add the FS2Crew entries to the 8 model's panel.cfg file. Anti-Ice callouts fixed. Other minor bug fixes.

  13. Felis Announces 747-200 Classic In Development Felis, the developer behind popular vintage airliners for X-Plane such as the TU-154M and AN-24RV, has announced the start of development on the next addition to the stable – the Boeing 747-200 Classic. In the post on the X-Plane.org forums, Felis says that he wanted to make a classic variant of the 747 without the modern equipment such as digital displays while retaining fully analogue gauges and the inclusion of LTN72 or LTN92 Inertial Navigation Systems (though those with a more modern understanding of navigation will have the choice of the X-Plane default FMC). He also says that he intends to produce a 1970s-esque Air Force One variant, giving the capability of air-to-air refuelling. So far the development is in very early stages, but Felis says that blueprints, FCOM and AMM documentation have all been acquired, along with plenty more documents that have been found online in order to aid the accuracy of this aircraft throughout the development phase. As far as progress goes, he did initially show off two very early external model screenshots with windows and doors in place, mentioning that cargo doors and technical holes are on the to-do list next, and has since posted several more renderings too (seen in this post). Later in the thread, Felis begins to answer questions from users of the forum. In doing so, he implies that there is an intention to model all engine variants, but this will depend on the availability of information relating to these. Furthermore, the plans of a passenger cabin (much like the developer’s TU-154M product) remain up in the air with a direction for it being undecided due to development time and end-user system requirements. Another question that many reading this may be asking too, is “what about a -300, -200SUD and/or 747SP models later on?” as user avgaskoolaid did. This writer would be overjoyed to see an SP variation, but Felis says that there are no firm plans at this point in time, however, the idea will be revisited after release and will be based on sales data.

  17. A few minutes ago, developer SSG published a new update for their popular Boeing 747-8 Series, bringing this particular Queen of the Skies to version 1.81. See the changelog: Do note this is the final update the X-Plane 10 version of the aircraft is going to receive, according to the developer. The team also asks not to “use x-updater to update your B748 to the latest version, it will not work. Please enter in your store download area and then pick your version XP10, XP 11 or both. The SSG B748 don’t support the x-updater. actually, it is not compatible”.

  19. First Preview of the PMDG 747-8. Exciting Times Ahead! Last night, we shared a little sneak preview of the PMDG 747-8 Expansion for our Queen of the Skies II product line. Many of you had a chance to get an early glimpse of what we have coming, but this evening I am here to officially unveil the first official preview of our upcoming release! https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/530152-27jan18-first-preview-of-the-pmdg-747-8-exciting-times-ahead/
  20. UPDATE 27 Jan 2018 @ 22:55z: Slight edit for accuracy: The NG3 may not refer to the 737 Max. Can anyone confirm if the 737NG (real world) comes equipped with moving maps by default? Yesterday, PMDG CEO, Robert, treated us to a small glimpse into the 747-8’s flight deck. The preview showed us some exciting new features including an EFB, moving maps and airport charts. Today, he went into a bit more detail and shared a few new screenshots of the upcoming aircraft and confirmed the team are working on the NG3. The first key detail is that the product will be entering a beta period very soon. This is exciting is it means that soon we’ll see many brand new shots of the aircraft and see it in more detail. The next piece of information is that some of the features we saw yesterday are most likely to be only found P3DV4, as it’s a 64-bit platform. To quote RSR, “[the new stuff] brings forward our increasing effort to leverage the new x64bit simulator Prepar3D v4 to further increase the amount of realism we can provide.” The EFB in particular is important to note as it will be found in other PMDG aircraft in the near future. This will include the 777, the 747-400 and the upcoming NG3. That’s right, not the NGX. The EFB itself, as we mentioned yesterday, will offer a range of performance calculations for take off and landing. If you have in-op equipment, let it know and it will make sure the calculations are accurate. Wet runway, it’ll factor that in too. The EFB will walk you through the whole process making it as easy as possible. Furthermore, it will offer limited flight planning capability. Also discovered yesterday was the airport position map. RSR is a huge fan of this due to the added safety benefits it has. As a result, he was keen to get this into the aircraft. Luckily, for us, it comes with very little impact on the frame rate and implements a dynamic and real-time implementation. PMDG have made every effort to make it as easy as possible and will work with both default and add-on scenery you may have. If you’re wondering if the technology will be found in other aircraft, you can expect it in the NG3 since the real-world aircraft uses the same technology. This would suggest that PMDG are working on the 737 MAX. The next exciting new technology found is the Navigation Charts! It’s no secret users have wanted it for a while and PMDG have always been searching for ways to integrate it without passing a huge cost to the user. Work really began back in 2016, but now, excitingly, PMDG and Navigraph have worked together to now integrate it. This means you can now use your Navigraph charting subscription to import the charts into the 747-8 via the EFB. So you can view any chart at any time regardless of destination or phase of flight. Simply sign in and the charts will be yours to use! In the long-term future, PMDG are looking to import this into any aircraft that gets the EFB. Furthermore, if you use Aerosoft’s charting solution, PMDG are planning to integrate that in the future. What they did make clear was that there won’t be a free option. Finally, the other element that was noted was the rain drops found on the wind-screen. At first it wasn’t clear if it was TFDi Design’s True Glass, but Josh from the team made it clear it wasn’t. This meant that it was likely to be PMDG’s own technology. Today, RSR confirmed it is their own tech, which they jokingly call PMDG RainMaker. It’s been designed ‘per-airframe’ and features highly realistic aero and hydro dynamic simulation of precipitation and motion. This means speed, wipers and wind will effect how it displays. Will it come to other PMDG products? Yes! It will start with the 747 fleet, then the 777 and finally the NG3. At this time, the team are unsure about porting it to the NGX. Furthermore, it will only be available on P3DV4 due to the increased memory count the sim has. RSR concluded the mega post with further information regarding how the 747-8 is a very different aircraft to the -400 series. It includes a lot of the modern technology found in the 777 and later. It’s brimming with details, check lists, data and information. The forum post goes into a lot more detail about what sort of little details you can expect in the 747-8. No date or price has been set yet. The team will soon be giving it to the beta team to test and give feedback. Once we edge closer to the release, the team will update us.

  21. PMDG Previews New Shot of the 747-8 – EFB, Moving Maps and More Usually, PMDG’s CEO Robert S Randazzo would post new previews on his own topics, but today, he opted for a more subtle approach.
