PMDG Statement on P3DV4.4 and Other Items

It seems it takes a update from Lockheed Martin to bring some of the biggest developers to come out of the woodwork. Earlier today, PMDG CEO Robert Randazzo gave a brief update regarding various items on their agenda.

The first thing that’s important to note is that all current PMDG products that work with Prepar3D V4.3 will work just fine with the newly released version V4.4. When it comes adding PBR, Robert said that it will take some time to roll them out to their product range on a “as ready” basis. They currently have no time frame on it. It was mentioned that they have seen PBR come through the testing process, but documentation on proper implementation wasn’t quite ready. As a result, they decided to wait until the final version was ready before investing the time. It was made clear that once PBR is applied to an aircraft, it will move the required version of Prepar3D to a default of V4.4 and above.

It does beg the question, what are the team working on? Well, as previously hinted and discussed, it was finally laid out that the team are “heavily engaged in NG3 development”. NG3 refers to the next version of their popular NGX product, which was released over 7 years ago (yes, really!).

It was mentioned a little while back that the Queen of the Skies II would see an update to include the PMDG Rainmaker among other things since the release of the 747-8. It was said today that a “comprehensive” update for the PMDG 747 QOTSII will be pushed via the Ops Center in the upcoming days. The update will feature some efficiency enhancements, cool new features that haven’t been shown off yet and a bunch more. No change log was provided, but once available, we’ll let you know.

Finally, PMDG have confirmed the move from Avsim to their own forum will take place soon. The team expect a “soft-opening”, which will mean that both the Avsim and new PMDG forums will be staffed, but once everyone is up to speed, the Avsim one will cease to exist. More information will be provided soon on the PMDG forum.

You can read the official statement over on the PMDG forums via Avsim.
