In a lengthy announcement on their forum, developer PMDG has announced the date for the first expansion pack for their recently released 737NGXu.
This new expansion pack will add both the 737-600 and -700 to the base NGXu package, along with a variety of free liveries via the PMDG Operations Centre 2.0.
The post also stated that PMDG’s Global Operations Centre 2.0 (OC2.0) will see a global rollout on Wednesday (January 29th). Anyone who has purchased the PMDG NGXu product already has OC2.0, but all other users (who have not purchased the NGXu) will see the update come via the normal Operations Centre 1.0 update process.
An important part of this global roll out involves all users uninstalling all existing liveries that have been installed via Operations Centre 1.0. This is due to a new file naming convention that is used in OC2.0 and leaving existing liveries could result in them not being recognized once users update to OC2.0. It’s important to note that, should users not complete the uninstall and reinstall process, the liveries will still display properly on the plane. However, they may not be recognized in OC2.0.
Mr. Randazzo also touched on the fact that PMDG is committed to bringing far more frequent updates to users, working towards all products being on a ‘continual improvement program’, especially as the developer begins releasing products for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
As well, Mr. Randazzo hinted updates for the 747 and 777 product lines that should be available in the coming weeks.
