PMDG Releases New Update for the 777 Range

2021 2 28 17 27 0 661

Following on from the extensive update earlier this week, a fresh new update for the entire PMDG 777 range has been released. The update address many of the concerns raised by the community and other issues discovered post-release. The release information shared covers the PMDG 777-200LR/F Base Packs and the 777-300ER and 777-200ER Expansion packs for Prepar3D v4 and Prepar3D v5.

The changes were presented on a forum post over on the PMDG forums and highlighted a number of changes made. Some changes include various sim crashes from the FMC or the EFB, modelling issues with elements such as the flaps and the tailskid and also the engine fan animation.

One big change not in the changelog but mentioned in the post was to do with the sound for all three engine types in the 200ER package. In the post, it was said that the sound environment has been tweaked to improve the subtle characteristics of each type

Whilst the changelog already does seem to address many of the issues already reported, PMDG said that there are still some more issues that require a bit more testing and research before they can be released.

That said, in his latest post, Robert said that the 777 line is much more in line with the rest of the product range so future updates such as the LNAV improvements and the new navdata processes will be updated in line with the likes of the 747 QOTSII and the 737 NGXu. He also wanted to say thanks to the community for the support and feedback. He said the decision to provide the Base Pack and 300ER Expansion updates for free was in response to how the current global pandemic has impacted everyone and that PMDG felt this was an appropriate way to give back.
