PMDG Status Update

DC-6 Update

PMDG has shared a new status update about their ongoing efforts with Microsoft Flight Simulator and a few other things. First off, there is a very small update for PMDG’s DC-6 for MSFS. The update fixes a few issues that have been found with the plane, that PMDG did not want to delay amidst general MSFS updates and changes. Other changes that the company has been working on are related to get the plane in a state where they feel it’s ready enough to go to the MSFS Marketplace. The full changelog (however small it is) of the DC-6 update can be found at the end of this post.

MSFS, DC-6 and 737NG3

The team has also been working on general MSFS platform changes, which of course affect the DC-6 but also the 737NG3. The recent Sim Update 5 changed some core mechanics of the sim that also affected PMDG’s planes, and the team has had to shift their focus a bit to make the DC-6 work, causing some delays on the 737NG3 side. The process of fixing, according to Robert Randazzo’s post, has been a bit slow due to the holiday season and slowed responses from Asobo. Furthermore, some of the changes on the sim have been challenged, leaving the question whether or not these things might change again in the future. However, the outlook for the 737NG3 is still good and if everything goes according to plan, Randazzo remains confident that they can start previewing the plane during this month.

747 QOTS II

The team has not only been working on their MSFS efforts. Development on the Prepar3D side of things has been going on steadily. PMDG has been working on a new LNAV module for the 747 for a while now, and beta testers will receive another update later during the week. The new module is a significant update over the “legacy LNAV model”, and once ready will be rolled out as a micro-update. However, the timeline for that is not quite clear yet.
