PMDG 747-400/8 QOTS II PBR Update Released

747 PBR PMDG (2)

Over on their forum, PMDG has announced that they’ve pushed out build 3.00.9329 which implements PBR for Prepar3D v4.4 users.

This update release follows after numerous previews posted by PMDG featuring the main feature, PBR which is implemented as of this build. Asides from PBR, other small bug fixes, tweaks and general cleanup have been added to further improve the overall experience which is also available to FSX, FSX-SE and P3D v3 users. You can view a complete changelog at the end of this article.

For all Prepar3D v4 users, Randazzo has dropped a notice quoted directly below:

NOTAM FOR ALL PREPAR3D v4 USERS: As we have been warning for some time, you will need to maintain your Prepar3d installation on the latest update commencing with this update series. If you are already updated to P3D v4.4, but after updating the 747 you notice that the engine pylons are black, and/or the aluminum engine intake inlets or wing leading edges are black in color, this means you must still update your P3D v4.4 CONTENT, not just the CLIENT. Lockheed Martin’s initial instructions to users suggested only updating the CLIENT was sufficient in order to use PBR, but in recent days that has been determined to be inaccurate guidance which we anticipate they will update shortly.

To grab a hold of this update, head to the Operations Center and hit the wheel in the top right, from there you should be able to update your product.

If you don’t already own it, you can grab a hold of the PMDG 747-400 base back at a price of $139.99 (Excl. VAT) for Prepar3D v4. Head over to PMDG’s website to view the 747-8 expansion and FSX releases here.

Thanks to Sam Wheeler for the screenshots.
