  • PMDG Announces First X-Plane Project


    Cameron

    PMDG has officially announced the Douglas DC-6 as their entry product into the X-Plane simulation world.

    Robert Randazzo of PMDG states:

    "The PMDG Classics DC-6B is the lead off product in a new breed of products for PMDG that will bring some "old school" aviation to our product lines for Xplane, FSX and Prepar3D. This product will drop for XPlane first- but shortly after will release for FSX and Prepar3D as well- making it the first PMDG product to appear on three different simulation platforms."

    A topic of discussion can be found here at X-Pilot.

    The original posting from PMDG may be found on their Facebook page.

    Will we ever see it ??
    I am afraid we won`t.
     

    They strated the project because they ware afraid of losing market and not being able to enter the P3D-scene as a commercial partner.
    These days they are making profit with products for P3D.

    I think the DC6 does not have any priority anymore.

    What makes you think so? They are definitely working on it and publish updated infos and WIP videos from time to time. The last update showing the new cargo version and improvements to the virtual flight engineer was posted one week ago:

    While I'm sure the DC-6 isn't number 1 on their priority list, it's definitely under constant development and I'm sure it will hit the market.

    Agree - totally looking forward to intro of the DC-6, whether an A a C or a 6B.  I worked for an airline that operated five 6B's and flew in them often.  Just a musing, passing comment: the navigator (these were LORAN days!), sat behind a radio rack just aft of the F/O.  It seems he would have been adjacent the RH forward service door that the LOWI-ramp video shows as storage site for the collapsible stairs - thus no room for the navigator.  For that matter, our 6B's didn't have self-contained, collapsible stairs.  

    Beautiful detail.  Intrigued with how the FMC/nav functionality was accommodated and is modeled.  Even the thought of FD's/AP's would have been beyond the pale then ... VOR's were a recent development.

    I really enjoy flying the DC-6 airplane!! Very impressive!! When I first bought the PMDG DC-6 I thought it was a 10 fuel version DC-6 which have a range of around 4,000 nautical miles until I found out the PMDG DC-6 is a 8 fuel tank version which have a range of around 2,500 to 2,600 nautical miles! Excellent work on the DC-6 PMDG!!

     

              Cheers
