PMDG Updates 747-400/8 QOTSII & 737 NGXu

2019 11 16 11 27 29 27

PMDG has done a double-take just in time for the weekend, with an update to their 747-400/8 QOTSII series and their 737 NGXu series. While the 747 update does not bring any new features, the spotlight is stolen by the 737NGXu series, as PMDG have updated the aircraft to now be officially compatible with Lockheed Martin’s Prepar3D v5. In the update posted on the PMDG Forums, among the new information presented, Robert Randazzo mentioned that:

“P5D is still an “in development” platform that is still going through significant transformation, which makes lighting and color matching an ongoing game with the changes in the platform, but we are finally able to push this update to you after having massaged things to work correctly with Lockheed Martin’s HotFix 2.” Randazzo further updated his forum posts by adding that they will wait for the Prepar3D V5.1 release, so some PBR cockpit materials will only be released by then.

MK-Studios Releases Donegal Airport

Mk Studios Donegal Airport (1)

MK-Studios has released Donegal Airport for Prepar3D v4 and v5. Following on from their release of Dublin earlier this year, MK-Studios are heading back to Ireland to bring a detailed rendition of Donegal Airport (EIDL) to users. Donegal Airport is used by two airlines taking people to Dublin and Glasgow. The challenging approach, tricky weather and small runway means it can be tough for any pilot.

Included with the airport is complete photoreal coverage of the airport and surroundings, along with an up-to-date layout of the ground, taxiway and markings. As with other MK-Studios airports, the texture work includes PBR material, realistic night lighting and also uses SODE for windsock animations. Despite the detailed appearance of the terminal buildings and outer areas, the team has optimised the airport for best performance.

You can buy Donegal Airport from simMarket for €15.00 (excluding VAT).
