PMDG acaba de anunciar que el proximo Viernes 18 de Junio saldra a la venta el "nuevo" DC-6.
Este en un add-on que estos esperando de forma casi enfermiza desde hace tiempo y que creo me va a tener muy ocupado en los próximos meses.....hasta que salga el DC-3
Una de las cosas que mas me esta llamando la atencion es que PMDG estan enamorados de MSFS y estan diciendo a los cuatro vientos que hasta ahora nunca habian tenido un simulador base que les permitiera desarrollar los addons con el nivel y profundidad que ellos soñaban.
De hecho han borrado de su pagina de ventas ya todos los productos que tenian para X-Plane o FSX.
Aqui dejo el comunicado del jefe de PMDG
El DC-6 no sera un avion facil de gestionar con 4 motores radiales y requerira estudio, pero aun asi han activado una funcion de un Ingenireo de vuelo IA que si lo solicita el piloto le ira ayudando en gestion de motores y otros sistemas.Captains,
We are happy to announce that our first product for Microsoft Flight Simulator has completed development and is now pending for release.
The PMDG Douglas DC-6 for Microsoft Flight Simulator represents the first of a number of products that PMDG has planned for Microsoft Flight Simulator, and marries our penchant for creating "study level" simulations with Microsoft's magnificent new, high technology flight simulation engine. Never before have we had the ability to model an airplane with such detail, and we are very excited to bring this product to market this week.
Throwing superlatives around is an easy thing to do when you are working with a new generation of simulation platform that is as visually stunning as thew new Microsoft Flight Simulator. We tend to shy away from such behavior when showing a soon-to-be released product, but in this case it is hard to avoid. MSFS is a modern engine that does a magnificent job of capturing the beauty of the DC-6, allowing us to turn out a highly detailed, robust simulation of one of the world's great, classic airliners.
The PMDG Douglas DC-6 for Microsoft Flight Simulator is a ground up build that was designed from the beginning to capitalize on the advanced features of MSFS. From lighting to flight handling to systems behaviors, we have created a detail-rich simulation that is sure to deliver weeks and months and years of enjoyable simulation experience to PMDG customers new and old. No effort has been spared to make this the most detailed simulation in our product line, while simultaneously giving new simmers all of the tools that they need to succeed in opreating this highly detailed simulation.
Understanding that not all PMDG customers have radial engine experience in their background, we have added the Automated Flight Engineer to the product specifically to unburden you, the pilot, by handling most all of the complex tasks and checklists while you focus on flying the airplane. Just like a real-world captain, you can easily delegate complex processes to your Automatic Flight Engineer with the simple click of a button.
The PMDG Douglas DC-6 will be available on Friday, 18JUN21 directly from www.pmdg.com.
We will have more video and information available for you later in the day on Wednesday, and we hope that you will take a few moments to tune in to our friends Chewwy and TheFlyingFabio on Twitch throughout the day today as they showcase our new product and attempt to learn to fly the airplane in real-time with all of you watching.
Pricing and time-of-day availability is still pending, and will be announced shortly before product release.
We are very excited to finally be bringing you a product compatible with Microsoft Flight Simulator. We are very excited about what we have created, and we hope it will bring you many years of simulator enjoyment.
On behalf of all of us at PMDG, thank you for your continued support during the past 24 years!

No creo que tenga tantas ventas como los Jets modernos pero a los que nos gustan las helices y las agujitas esta es nuestra maquina.
Han sacado una serie de videotutoriales muy bien hechos para ir explicando procedimientos que ayudan a entender la complejidad de este addon.
Aqui os dejo el primero de estos videos
