My first thought was the same, it's a bit worrying that the counter is down to 15fps when in an earlier picture from just the cockpit it was 40+ ....:-eek Nice looking cabin for those passenger views though.Well, it's not the final version and perhaps there is an option to "lock out" the cabin when the cockpit door is closed, similarly as in A320 PIC where the cabin was not rendered when the door was closed.

May sound stupid, but when the doors are opened, are they visibly open from the virtual cabin? I don't remember if they were in the 737NG

That's very cool... I'm sure the texturing still has a long ways to go, since this is early, but it's already taking shape rather nicely. I was about to complain about the overhead bins looking very square-like... But I decided to look for shots and they're like that (but with smoother edges). So just in case anyone is about to say it, here's a shot. http://www.airliners.net/open.file/817720/L/ Man, was I about to look stupid. :-lolAnd Vin, still no cabin row numbers? Come on, man... That's weak. :-lol Daniel P.http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/ng_driver.jpgMember of SJU Photography.

Nice looking cabin and thanks for taking the trouble to post the pictures. One thing got my attention: the window frames should be deeper, as can be seen in this picture:http://www.airliners.net/open.file/817720/LOne of the developers once told us that there would also be part of the lower-deck cabin. I sincerely hope there is. Could you confirm that?ThanksDirk

Could someone enlighten me about one particular feature of this cabin ...There are some slim looking 'silver' boxes mounted on the floor behind each seat. I have been scratching my head for the last hour trying to understand whe the #### they are ... :-hmmmMichael J.WinXP-Home SP2,AMD64 3500+,Abit AV8,Radeon X800Pro,36GB Raptor,1GB PC3200,Audigy 2http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/747400.jpghttp://www.hifisim.com/images/asv_beta_member.jpg

A note to the earlier comment on the doors in the NG -- no they are not "visable" open in the VC or cabin. No doors are animated on the interior of the NG.At least it looks like they are on this 747 **smiles**.As for the silver boxes -- in that class I believe that is extra space for folks to put their stuff :-) Though someone please correct me if I am wrong.

Looks nice enough, but it seems as if the textures were a little rushed and need more work to me? Correcty me if I'm wrong, maybe it's the angle of the pictures taken...?

BAH! Those textures look bloody awesome. It's the functionality of the sim that is important, not the cosmetics. Remember a certain maker of the A380 add-on that is the ultimate embarrassment and joke of the year? They worried about cosmetics, but the bloody thing can't fly and was a complete waste of my money, and they refuse to even have a support forum or anything NEAR what PMDG provides their users, so from what I see so far this is FAR above and beyond anything I have ever seen.**bows in respect before the folks at PMDG** Keep it up, guys, you are doing more than we could ever 'realistically' expect.

Do not agree. We haven't seen all angles indeed, but so far, the textures do not look to good, if you compared it with the stunning VC.I have a question. One of the developers told us that there would be part of the upper as well as the lower deck cabin. Can anyone please confirm this? Either verbally or visually ;-)?Thanks

The Cabin looks great to me, truthfully I could care less if there is a cabin but am happy that it completes the "overall package". I've seen the cabin redone on the 737 (SouthWest style) by users and would be great to see others apply their majic like they do for liveries. Another poster commented about frame rates, I have yet to find a detailed an "airliner cabin" that did not also make the FPS crawl a bit. But the Virtual cockpit has so many items that move about that I am blown away, take the CPT & FO's seats, you can move the chairs back and forth, move the arm rests and even adjust the head rests. The jump seat also moves, heck you can even see paper out of the printer! Certainly this VC is one of a kind in every area and with more FPS than the cabin at "present". I of course would like to see a NON CABIN version availible in the aircraft menu for those who do not use it and desire to save all that texture loading for other things. [h4]Randy J. Smith[/h4]

I too would prefer the non-cabin option. I've noticed a serious slowdown with other craft that include a cabin in the model.

I think there's a balance to strike between functionality and looks. Something can be extremely functional, but it if doesn't look realistic, then all the realistic modelling is gone to waste. Now, this Vcab looks very nicely designed, the seats are cool... The textures look like they're still early and far from done.I'd say visuals are important. I know many of you just want functionality, but if functionality was all that mattered, you might as well use PS1.3 and drop FS altogether, right? :) I think PMDG knows this, and I truly doubt they'll deliver anything short of a wonderful product with visuals and textures to match the amazing functionality.Daniel P.http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/ng_driver.jpgMember of SJU Photography.
