• PMDG Opens New Forums

    PMDG Forums

    PMDG has announced that for the first time they will be running their own support forums. The forums are now open to the public at forum.pmdg.com. To kick things off, Robert Randazzo has made some major announcements about future PMDG plans:

    Since this is the beginning of a new era for PMDG I thought it might be appropriate to start out with a major announcement regarding the future development plans for PMDG products.

    PMDG to Cease Development of New Content for Microsoft Flight Simulator X & Microsoft Flight Simulator X - Steam Edition: As we prepare to entire our 22nd year in operation, PMDG will, effective immediately, focus our development efforts on platforms using 64 bit architecture.

    The FSX and FSX-SE platforms have served us very well since their respective debuts, but with rapidly declining customer adoption rates and increased complexity supporting these outdated platforms it is no longer considered to be economically viable and in fact slows our development process attempting to maintain compatibility across all off the platforms we have been supporting for the past four years.

    Products currently on the market for these platforms will remain for sale, and will continue to be fully supported by PMDG as there are many tens of thousands of users still enjoying these platforms worldwide. We will not be bringing new products such as the NG3 to these platforms, choosing instead to focus on Prepar3D v4.4+ and possibly Prepar3D v5 and XPLANE in our future development endeavors.

    To be more clear: Nothing here should cause any change for existing or new customers of our FSX product lines. We will continue to sell and fully support the existing FSX products lines, to include occasional product updates and bug fixes. This change means simply that no new product lines for FSX or FSX-SE will be introduced.

    PMDG to Cease Development of New Content for Lockheed Martin Prepar3D v3: Concurrent with our decision to focus on 64bit platforms, PMDG will release no future titles compatible with Lockheed Martin's Prepar3D v3. This decision is being made in order to allow us to focus on the increased capabilities of the Prepar3D v4.4+ platform, as well as other x64 platforms such as Prepar3D v5 and/or X-Plane 11+.Products currently on the market for the P3D v3 platform will remain for sale and will continue to be fully supported by PMDG, but no new products will be introduced for the P3D v3 platform.

    We are currently evaluating an End-of-Life option for our P3D v3 products due to extremely low adoption rates and the difficulty in maintaining compatibility as we update our products to take advantage of new features in the P3D v4 platform. More information on this topic will be forthcoming when a decision is made later in 2019.

    PMDG 747 Queen of the Skies II Update. We hit a code-side snag in the 747 product line that has the next update cycle in holding while we seek a solution. The issue is mine to solve, and unfortunately this week was a mess with other "stuff" on the agenda so I haven't had the time to dedicate to the research process. I'm working this weekend, so with some luck we I'll be able to sort out whatever-it-is-I-broke for the last test cycle, and we can hustle a new build to beta testing. I'll keep you posted...
