PMDG 747-400/8 QOTS II Update Released

Post-release of their long-awaited 747-8 expansion last Saturday, PMDG have pushed an update to their 747-400 Queen of the Skies II and 747-8 Queen of the Skies II Expansion for both Prepar3D and FSX platforms to eliminate bugs owners of the product have been experiencing during their flights as well as some performance enhancements and detail cleanup.

BUILD 3.00.9019 brings several fixes to issues reported by PMDG’s customers to the external model, systems, EFB, virtual cockpit and more. There is a 31 item changelog for you to check out at the end of this article.

To grab a hold of this update, you’ll need to follow the instructions issued by Robert Randazzo over at PMDG’s support forum:

You can get this update by running the PMDG Operations Center, then clicking on the settings wheel.  You should see a flag there to alert you of the present of the updates, and you can install from there.  Note that if you have FSX and FSX/SE, or if you have Prepar3D v3 and Prepar3D v4 installed side-by-side, you may see multiple flags.  We recommend you just click through all of them to install the available updates, and then close the operations center, and re-open it.  Then you will likely see some flags to alert you that your liveries may need repair in the 747-8.

At the end of his post, Randazzo thanks everyone for all the kindness and support received for the 747-8 release and how very happy he is to see that people are enjoying the new expansion to the 747 product line.

The complete changelog for this update is as follows:
