Gents - I took the opportunity to take some shots during my last test flight. A short hop between ESSA, Stockholm and ESMS, Malm

Did you know that KLM doesn't put there gear in OFF position?And Mats, great shots. The PFD looks way better now.

Something I just noticed. Your flying PW engines but there is no EPR gauge in your cockpit. Isn't that modeled yet?

Nice shots. Just one little thing: The N1 reference indicator should be magenta because VNAV is engaged and therefore the target N1 is commanded by the FMC!CheersFred

Nice shots, however in the 3rd shot is the flightplan route (magenta line) ment to go off the compass rose?>Something I just noticed. Your flying PW engines but there is>no EPR gauge in your cockpit. Isn't that modeled yet?Looks like GE engines to me, as Boeing's demo a/c has GE engines. EPR Guage, When I spoke to Leferis at the IFC Show in Blackpool last week, they have not done a RR/PW cockpit, however he did say that they would a small possibility of one IF there was demand for one, the inital release is based around the GE Engine, but oviously with all 3 engine models.I'm one who hopes PMDG will do an EPR EICAS, but I wouldn't be surprised if one wasn't done since it seems all developers are staying away from it.Cheers

Crap no RR/PW cockpit???? :((. Is it still possible to fly it realisticly with no RR/PW cockpit??. I sure hope so i guess it is:P lol ah well kooly shots anyway and yeah you forgot Gear in OFF :(.Best regards:Alexander

What does "Gear in OFF" mean? What does that position actually do? I have always wondered what the difference between gear up and gear off is, and since it's been brought up twice in this thread I thought I'd ask! ;)Thanks in advance!EDIT: I forgot to say that the screen shots are fab - can't wait to get this a/c on on my machine. I like the airport senery as well.

On the 737 the OFF position removes hydraulic pressure from the hydraulic jacks that raise the gear. If you keep it in UP, you apply a steady pressure to the entire system - should it rupture (a very very slim chance) you will lose a lot of hyd. fluid. Therefore you can place the gear lever to OFF and you remove pressure the system.Just don't do it too early - if you place it to OFF during retraction and gear isn't locked, the gear will come flying back down :-)In some non-normal cases it is required to remove hyd pressure from the landing gear - for example during alternate extension.Adrian

Adrian,For what it's worth. My frame rates are better with the Queen than with the NG and the same config. And I have everything pretty much maxed out in the FS settings so there are room for some twekaing.Cheers,

Iain,>Nice shots, however in the 3rd shot is the flightplan route>(magenta line) ment to go off the compass rose?That is an option in the PMDG menu for the Queen as it was with the NG. This flight I had the clipping turned off.I was flying with the PW engines. When it comes to the EPR modelling I have to let the developers answer that question. And it looks like Lefteris gave you a good answer to that in Blackpool.Hope it helps,

Robin,You or someone else mentioned this before. I have added this to the bug database as an added feature request. Cheers,

Thank you very much Mats!So if I see this correctly, the 747 is at least as good as the 767 - or even better?Ok mark me down as a customer - you sold me :-)Why don't you make this sticky? At least the screenshots - would be a good marketing campaign...Cheers,Adrian

Looks amazing, sure is coming along nicely.If I may, I know it's not my place and I could be mistaken but I'd like to point out some things on the PFD:http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/122563.jpg1. The triangle indicating bank angle should be a clear triangle not a solid white one, or at least I've never seen it solid white.2. The bank angle increment markings look quite different in real life (see link below)3. Should the numbers in on the compass at the bottom of the PFD not be aligned similar to those on the ND compass rose (i.e. at right angles to the tangent of the compass circle itself, if that makes sense?)Apologies if I've spoken out of turn or if they are already being looked at but I thought I'd mention it anyway.To compare: http://www.airliners.net/open.file/656898/L/ Thanks for the preview.

Good eyes!What I also noticed - the relations of the artifical horizon in the PFD is different. Yours is more like a square while the real one is taller than it is wide - hence your additional bank angle markings.

Great, I tooo also noticed the PFD (needs to be more rounder)And the Standby ADI, please adjust the colours and the shape of it :) It's something that really stands out.Everything else is greaaat!
