Hello Jeff,I believe that MSFS has some limitations and thus not everything can be simulated. PS1.3 on the other hand, was designed as B744 computer based simulator and thus many things are included. However, there are some drawbacks, like to "real" visuals. But visuals are not the most important part of that sim.If PMDG guys have passed these limitations than it should be same as PS1.3.Cheers,Andrej

We will provide the best combination in terms of visuals and functionality within what is reasonable for an FS add-on. Don't forget the price tag of PS1.3 is a couple of hundred dollars and it took years to be developed. For now, all I can say is that we are still in the early development phase and the exact specifications of the product have not been determined yet. So stay tuned for more details... oh, and let's not forget the upcoming 737-800/900 product. ;)

I hate to be a stickler for accuracy as well. But, the thought that crosses my mind is that every single airline orders their birds with different features, even in the cockpit - or should I say especially in the cockpit. The difference between the cockpit of an old Delta 747-200 (no longer in service at Delta of course) and the 747-200s' that United purchased were quite different. Atlas cargo has always been known for ordering or installing by themselves different gauges and such. So, that "hole" may not be a standard feature.Wilson HinesUAL006VHQCCSenior Vice President, Corporate Communicationshttp://virtual.united.com --------------------------------------Proficiencies: PSS 747,777, A32x, CS 727,PMDG 737-700---------------------------------------FS2002|ActiveSky|FSRealTime|FSBuild2|FSNav|Jep SimCharts2|ACLoaderhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/checkcapt.jpghttp://heavylhc.com/images/av/anna.jpg

This is great. Finally someone is going to do this airplane justice. PMDG is really taking over FS add ons.

I'm totally speechless. Thanks for giving us the modern -400 in this quality. I can't wait to see more of this beauty. I have had some many nice hours on the -400 on my real flights as a passenger. Thanks again and keep up that work!

WOW.... Now this is awesome... truly awesome!The ol 747 is one of my favorite sim aircraft... While I am forever hooked on the 707/727/737's my breath is still taken away by a fully loaded 747, nearly a million pounds, rotating for a long range flight.To witness the transition to flight is like a spiritual experience of unseen dimensions, that feeling of freedom and release from the bounds of gravity and 2 dimensions!!! I cant wait to get my hands on the 739 (Alaska and others!) but the 747 is almost sacred in her own class!Thanks PMDG for bringing us this awesome sim aircraftAm hoping that 742's and 744's will be well represented as well as the freighters!Regards,Ted Panamarioff - warm, balmy Kodiak Alaska

Absolutely WOW!! You guys are really outdoing yourselves every time...I'd agree with the post above, not to worry about the price but rather it to be priceworthy. Already awaiting 800/900s and than this little baby. I've been missing her a lot since the FS2002...Thx a lot!

*DROOL*Ok, this is getting dangerous now, I am already drooling all over the keyboaard over the 800/900, now I'm drooling even more over the 744, I am running a severe risk of dehydration from excessive drooling here :-)I didn't really fly that much lately, just the odd flight with the default Lear or 737 every now and then. But then, after reading so much about it in the ActiveSky Beta Group, I caved in and got myself the PMDG 737 and am suffering from lack of sleep ever since. THat bird is just awesome. Can't wait for the 8/900 and the 744!How about a new banner:"Proud future addict of every jet PMDG cares to throw at me" ;-)Thanks PMDG for getting me re-addicted to FS!Best RegardsMax (Bern, LSZB)http://www.hifisim.com/images/as2004betateam.jpg http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/800driver.jpg
