PMDG have released a post detailing some small changes made to their DC-6 for FSX and P3D. But have also dropped some hints that they will be announcing some very new and exciting projects, ‘some stuff you have never imagined, some stuff you probably never expected, and some stuff that will leave you wondering whether we were reading your mind’
A few moments ago we pushed a very small update for the PMDG DC-6 Cloudmaster for FSX/P3D users. This update gives you a couple of cleanup details that the development team thought you would like to have since they were “sitting around collecting dust.”
You can obtain the update via the Operations Center, and you can see the change list items in the same location as well, but I have included it for you here for simplicity:
PMDG DC-6 Cloudmaster – BUILD 1.20.8430 (Released 15NOV17) [ View Issues ]
– 0006465: [Virtual Cockpit – Animation/Functionality/Click-Spots] FO side trim indicator doesn’t move

NOTAM #2: Legacy Product Activation Offline
On 13NOV17, we implemented a significant upgrade to our eCommerce system which modernized the encryption methods used by our internal systems. Shortly after this update we became aware of the fact that the older activation method employed by our legacy (Pre 2009 Publication Date) products was incompatible with the new levels of security.
While we officially ended support for the last of these legacy products in January of 2015, we do feel it is important that you should be able to install the product and operate it if you have a legitimate license to do so. As such, we are dedicating development time to updating the activation method used by these older products in order to ensure customer access to them for years to come.
In the mean time, we apologize for the inconvenience, but we promise to keep working on a solution.
NOTAM #3: Man, oh MAN do you need to see what we are working on. 🙂
We have been holding back on you a bit, as we want to keep a few things close to the vest, but we are rapidly nearing the time when we can start to talk with you about what is coming. Some stuff you have never imagined, some stuff you probably never expected, and some stuff that will leave you wondering whether we were reading your mind…
I am excited to be able to begin showing off the 747-8, which is rapidly nearing testing. Flying a 747 around with the use of an electronic checklist is simply a fantastic experience, and some of the other goodies packed into this product will really be fun to show you.
Don’t wander too far off…
