PMDG’s New Website Live with Sale

PMDG 748 Mountainflying

New Store

PMDG has opened the doors to their new store. The transition, which began last week, has now been finished. During this time, users were unable to purchase any PMDG products or download their already purchased products. Everyone should have access once again.

Robert Randazzo, who made the announcement on the PMDG forums, also shared some other important information related to the new website. First of all, it is good to know for everyone that all the account data and history has been transferred over. When you log in to your account, all the information should be right there. However, you will need to create a new password before being able to access your account. This has to do with new security measures that PMDG has implemented on their new website.

Furthermore, downloads are now protected with 2FA (two-factor authentication). So you will need to enter a code which will be send to your e-mail before you’ll be able to download your purchases.

With the transition to this new storefront, and the “recent” switch to a forum hosted by PMDG, the developer is entering a new era after 22 years. Soon, all other subdomains, such as support.precisionmanuals.com, will be hosted under the PMDG domain.

Sale

Moving on to the next bit of information Randazzo had to share. Today also happens to be PMDG’s 22nd birthday. To celebrate that, as well as opening the new store front, PMDG is having a 22% discount sale. You read that right. For the first time in PMDG history, the company is having a sale on their products. You won’t need to do anything to get the 22% discount, it will automatically be applied during checkout. The sale will last until August 14th.

That’s all Randazzo had to share, so make sure to checkout out the new website and get your favourite products now.

PMDG Roadmap: NG3, Global Flight Operations & More

2019 5 23 21 57 47 670

Over at the PMDG forum, CEO, Robert Randazzo has dropped a bit of a roadmap and status update in regards to the company’s upcoming developments and updates for existing products. In particular, the 737NG3, Global Flight Ops and more. We have summarised that information below.

Starting with the PMDG 737NG3, the first piece of the information is that it is a base package for Prepar3D V4.5. It has been confirmed that a lot of work has gone into creating a brand new 737 package, which will include new fluid and thermal models for pneumatic, hydraulic, pressurization, engine oil and fuel systems. Robert also said that the new PMDG 737NG3 will also feature much-improved accuracy for the electrical system, along with greater complexity in the systems themselves.

Furthermore, it has been confirmed a fully integrated EFB system will be included in the 737NGX from PMDG. Of course, there is also a range of other features not yet announced, including those never seen before in a PMDG product.

Beta testing has not started yet, and initially, the team will be asked to simply enjoy and absorb the details from the product before being allowed to show their previews to the world.

No release date information was given.

Moving onto PMDG Global Flight Operations, the team are finishing up figuring out the final technical hurdles they are experiencing with a “never before seen” feature in the sim. The current plan for roll out is to be gradual in nature. Once the new PMDG eCommerce solution is online, the team will start to invite users in to begin testing everything. The reason for the gradual role out is to test server load without causing issues.

More information on when this will happen will follow soon.

As mentioned, there will soon be an overhaul on the PMDG eCommerce solution, which will see a vastly improved user experience. Keen to make sure that the process is as simple as possible, PMDG has invested a lot of time, money and energy into ensuring that all order history and data can be moved across simply.

This new eCommerce solution should be online in a few weeks. PMDG have said that they will be requiring all customers to reset their passwords as it is “[…]best for the security of customer data and because our new system will have much higher standards for security [..]”. This isn’t to suggest that the current security is lax or has been compromised, but simply a best practice.

Finally, Robert touched on future updates for the PMDG 777 and the 747. There will be some product updates in the near future, especially with the release of PMDG’s Global Flight Operations. The 747 will most likely be first to implement the new features required by GFO, with the 777 following afterwards due to the number of changes required going forward.

That concludes the roadmap details from PMDG right now. Members of the team have been travelling across the Atlantic in their DC-3 from Washington, DC to Duxford, England in aid of celebrating the 75th anniversary of D-Day and the 70th anniversary of the Berlin Airlift. You can find full details and even track the flights by reading this forum thread on the PMDG forums.
