PMDG has finally updated the 737-600/700 NGX Expansion to Prepar3D Version 4! Along with this, they’ve released updates for all packages!
In a post to the AVSIM forums, PMDG CEO wrote: “we have finally released the Prepar3D v4 compatible version of the PMDG 737-600/700 NGX Expansion package. This officially completes the process of getting our core product line into line with P3D v4
Included in the statement he also said that they were unlikely to convert the J41 to P3D V4: “we can begin shifting focus to evaluating the J41 (unlikely to be converted) and putting our attention back to the main focus of finishing the PMDG 747-8 as well as evaluating updates to the DC-6 for XPlane users.”
They’ve also released updates for other packages, he wrote: “Okay- another big round of updates for you this evening. We are modestly certain that this will be the last batch of “no, you REALLY have to download the full installer again” updates as we seek to improve customer installation stability and eliminate some of the more common support call causes moving forward.”
The updates include:
- RAAS for P3D v4 has been added to the 777 and 747-400. (I erroneously mentioned this being added to the NGX last week- but it is not planned to be added to the NGX, which has never had the RAAS hook-in…)
- P3D Captain PFD pop-up CTD protection has been added to all three product lines. Since we have been unsuccessful in our efforts to convince Lockheed Martin to evaluate this CTD seriously, we have locked out the ability to use the CA’s PFD as a pop-up display, but we included an option in the PMDG Options menu within the FMS that allows the user to Opt-In to having this popup work. (NOTE: This particular CTD, for those who do not know, affects a small percentage of users who use the CA PFD as a popup, but the CTD doesn’t happen until you have been flying somewhere between 3-8 hours of actual elapsed time. This CTD began to appear in P3D v3.1 after Lockheed Martin pushed that update- and no root cause has been found after literally thousands of hours of tests internally at PMDG- so we took this step in order to minimize the number of customers affected by it without realizing the cause…)
- Some other various cleanup items across all three product lines, along with some efficiencies.
