Pmdg 737 Ngx Wish List

Recommended Posts

As the development team moves toward the NGX I am wondering if there is a formal way to make requests for the new aircraft. I am not trying to be pushy or to put any pressure on anyone, just wondering if there is a place for a "wish list." Ok, here's my wish: A HUD. I've spoken with Southwest pilots who fly without the autothrottle that say they can easily nail their speeds using their HUD. Hope it is a possiblity. Thanks, Don

Hello Don,The HUD is indeed an excellent item, especially for visual approaches. This was mentioned I think about 2 or 3 months ago and it seems we are going to have it in the NGX.I don't know if you can retrieve that thread though, frankly I'm still not able to use the search correctly.Happy landings

Don,I'm about 99.9% sure Ryan said they intend to model the HUD. In both 2D and the VC. :)

So ehm, any info the release date of NGX?I can't find any info on it, and it's probably the only thing that's keeping me from going FSX...there's just no good 737=s

Good, :( that means your staying with FS9 for at least another year and a half. I would like it too but it's unlikely we'll be given a date... :(

lol squishy give them a chance, the MD11 is only just out. I think we all know what to expect from PMDG and if it's possible to simulate a feature of the real aircraft in the sim world I think it will be there. when they have something to report I'm sure we will see more post's on the NGX.In the meantime plenty of stuff to keep us busy! :( I'm personaly still tryin to drag myself away from the 744 long enough to try and study for the FS9 MD11 release!Rob

I don't understand why there aren't any threads on the NGX? it's like nobody cares?
What makes you say so? There are threads on the 737NGX some of them quite long and informative, like the thread I mentioned above.

LOL, I'm so happy with the 747(X) that I have a hard time talking myself into buying the MD-11!

Once buy the MD-11 you are going to have a hard time talking yourself into flying the 747(X). ;)

It was me who first mentioned the HUD in this forum for the 737NGX, as Qantas utilises a HUD for the Captain in each of their B737-838 aircraft. It's something I definitely want to see. Just out of curiosity, what are the chances of PMDG modelling any of the BBJ variants, or military variants such as the Wedgetail being built for the Royal Australian Air Force?

Ye i know, i'm not asking them to release the NGX right now, just that some info would be nice! Approx release date...their NGX page hasn't been updated for 1.5years

Once they finish work on the MD-11 for FS9, they'll start work on the NGX then. That's the reason it hasn't been updated in 1.5 years.

Just to confirm... YES we are doing the HUD, and it will be spectacular!This is a ground-up remake of the aircraft, expect MD-11 level fidelity or (likely) higher. We intend to leave virtually nothing unsimulated.

Hey Ryan,I wish to see a measure of Landing Gs, in real we get this through the FMS, other than that, how about simulating a Flight Data Recorder which saves a file and then we open it using a program for prints etc. this would be really cool.Bhaskar Krishna

What bout some simple ACARS like functions, for example retrieve METARs from an airport that you enter. I'm not 100% sure about how it works in r/w but I do know in many a/c you can download any ATIS you like and print it out. I'd love to see such a simple METAR tool. :( Whaddaya think?Regards,Etienne

I second Etienne's idea, it would indeed be great to have a working ACARS especially for ATIS information though I don't think it's possible due to FS limitations, ATIS is only available from a short distance compared to the RW in our beloved simming heaven...

Thanks Ryan!I assumed this from your earlier post, but now you are stoking the fire. It's been a long wait for the NGX, but the good news is I was forced to learn to fly the Queen. I only fly PMDG aircraft, and have now made the switch to FSX.Being a long time PMDG customer, even though I am very excited for the NGX, I know it will probably be longer than we all hope. But that is only because as Orson Welles says, "no aircraft before it's time."Don

Thanks for the addition, but nah, I'd be glad to just have the METAR option. I'd almost 100% say you couldn't really retrieve the ATIS from FS, I just said that because I know they can get it in r/w :(. What I'd simply like to see was some function that somehow downloads the METAR from the net, I suppose that should not be such a major problem but then again I aint the dev! :(

How about some kind of link between Activesky and the FMC. It might then be possible to automatically download route winds and so on.Rob

Please add this option for the 737NGX, 2d panel with wing view and no V/C... That would be awesome for me and maybe a few others... I would love to look out over the wing and see those SWA winglets and lights on the leading edge...Happy Holidays to all....Take Care Will

Just wondering, are there any differences in the 'front office' in a BBJ compared to a vanilla 737NG? Otherwise the only differences are the fuel capacity and landing gear (plus better trim in the back ;)), right?Cheers, Chris Dalgarno
