Hi, (please sign your real name next time, it's a forum rule)See the following links:http://ops.precisionmanuals.com/wiki/PMDG_...wingviews.22.3Fhttp://ops.precisionmanuals.com/wiki/PMDG_...e_my_navdata.3FThere is no wx radar because FS9 does not allow us to program a realistic one. Anything you may have seen in other products does not accurately simulate what's really going on with a real radar and we're not gonna add what would essentially be a dummy gauge that's just there for visual effect. Significant upgrades will have to be made to the FS weather engine before we can make a real wx radar.I'm not sure what you mean about effects - 747-400's have very efficient modern high bypass engines that do not smoke and our model lights are already accurate per the real aircraft.

I updated them as said in that site..but when I fly online and the ATC gives me a SID I don't see it in FMC.. now maybe he's on old version.. but he says it's the newest.. so.. what's wrong? shouould I update NAVDATA every month?also, wing view could be used from the cabin as a passenger view

Same core modelling.

The database doesn't have everything - to get that would cost a $100,000 per year Jeppesen subscription. Yes you should update it every time the AIRAC cycle changes. (you'll usually see a post here - but just bookmark www.navdata.at and www.planepath.com and check em every month.) Remember too that real pilots always have the paper charts in addition to the FMC coded SIDs/STARs - those are just there for convenience - any pilot should be able to build almost any procedure manually on the FMC LEGS page...>also, wing view could be used from the cabin as a passenger>viewThere's a reason we didn't do wing views on the 744 - we're well aware of what it could be used for, that's not the point.
