PSS 777 visual model vs. POSKY 777 V2 model?

Recommended Posts

I am prolly one of the last people in the community to have bought the PSS 777 which I find to be better than I had been led to expect and very flyable. I recently visited the POSKY website for the first time in quite a while and found their 777 v2 with a VC which looks very nice. But I am wondering, how does the POSKY jet compare visually with the PSS T-7 visual model? Also, does it have more features or working surfaces that you can see in action? Appreciate any posts, thanks!JS

Posky is faaar more visually accurate and detailed - period, and the vc is also a work of art. Kinda tore me but shock of shocks, I still use PSS simply because I would lose the most compelling aspect of the PSS package, the fully functional vc. There is a merge to port PSS displays but that's not enough for me.If I were a 2d flyer, I would not hesitate to replace the PSS model. I wish so bad that the Posky 777s were a full-systemed hi end package, I'd buy in a heartbeat. regards,Mark

can someone explain the un-movable sun screen in the VC??? I fail to see the point of that besides thumbing their noses at VC fliers. Thankfully this isn't posted on their forum where I would be banned and probably sued for saying anything

Yeah what's the matter with posky anyway? I saw somebody asked for help about PSS merge and one of the devs' reply was "we don't support merges here so get out of here" ... #####?

I'm also too afraid to join the POSKY forum. I wanted to ask if there was a way to shut the APU cover but am too chicken ;-)They do make superb visual models though that cost nothing - so, thanks POSKY :-)

I'd have to see the actual post saying '...get out of here', but I have seen Posky members state they don't support merges. To be honest, I do not blame them - once people start morphing Posky's files, which is required when merging (especially with payware mid to high end panels) how can they be expected to provide support?? I wouldn't either.regards,Mark

Hey, look gents, I do not mean to be hostile either (!), but this thread did not ask for views about different forums. Anybody else care to comment on the visual aspects of the POSKY T-7, please go ahead. Thanks to those who have provided comment meantime. Much appreciated. Cheers,JS

Helpful comments, Mark, thanks for posting. I guess I shall just have to install at least one of their T-7s to check it out. Any liveries by POSKY that are particularly good you'd recommend?JS

Tell truth I only tried one BA just to gaze upon it before going back to my PSS vc. I recommend anything by Corey Ford though, like his work.regards,Mark

Johnathan:It's good to see old f@rts like me still hanging around here! LOL! Always brings back fond memories of the 'old' days.None-the-less. The POSKY visual model is simply beautiful. It accurately portrays the B777 and its nuances. The PSS 777 on the ther hand was pretty spartan in appearance and even their GE90 engines didn't give that appearance of having the world's largest jet engines slung under the wings. The PSS visual model, if I had to use a single word, terrible.Unfortunately, I'm a VC only flier and also a stickler for functionality. In that aspect I'm stuck with the far less visually pleasing PSS...until someone finally makes a POSKY type visual model with full VC systems detail.If you are a 2D flyer, then I wouldn't hesitate to get the POSKY visual with the PSS 2D. That would be as good as it gets...for now.Regards,Mike T.

Mark:Well, I just installed the AA T-7. It is great, I must say, just outstanding. I have it on a Triplehead2Go set-up so it's not only huge but looks like real life. PSS visual model is a let-down afterwards!I tried to instal the POSKY VC as well but it's just a hopelessly complex procedure and befuddling, so I've given up for now. It would be nice to marry the PSS VC with the POSKY visual model but I may not get that far either.Yeah, POSKY sure carries on the tradition it started years ago of superb visual models.JS

Hey, Mike:How are ye, mate?! Yep, still toolin' around the AVSIM forum a decade later, wow!Yeah, the POSKY T-7 indeed shows the utterly massive engines in all their glory with fabulously rotating swirls on the turbine as well. The T-7 does have giant engines and very large scary gear that are both larger than life and that are not so well portrayed in the PSS model.I fly in the T-7 several times a year across the Atlantic and it is an impressive and stunningly powerful aircraft even with a full load. I remember blasting out of KSFO with a full load to London once ages ago and we went up like a high speed elevator, it made the 747-400 seem as if it were the "local" in comparison.I too am now exclusively a VC flyer because of TripleheadToGo so I also accept the PSS for the time being (which actually I find flies very well, far better than its many critics have claimed), but boy I sure would like to find a way to marry the two up together.Thanks for your post. Good to "see" you again!JS

I fly the PSS simply for the fully functional VC. In fact, I rarely see the outside of the bird anyways.

Wow whats up with the Admins on the Posky forums? I have no interest in this 'Ultra light' aircraft but thought I would browse the forums to see what its like.. Now I know it's very frustrating when someone asks a question that may have been asked before or even covered in the read me but these guys are just insulting people! They need to get over themselves, yeah the visual model 'is good' but thats it! If I wanna see a ultra realistic looking 777 I will take a trip to Heathrow.Rob

Eric:You're very right in a way. It's nice to pop "outside" once in a while to see the bird but yeah we virtual pilots who are focused primarily on the FMC and MCP, and the flight characteristics when flying by hand, et al. spend most time "indoors". I think the PSS 777 is a very good piece of work (and I love the wx radar!), but maybe I was lucky to install it two years late and after all the patches and fixes had been rolled out. I've not had a single flight glitch with it.JS
