Well, no matter what anyone else thinks, I love their -300 and plan on purchasing the -500. The FFX -500 doesn't even compare to Ariane's -300 IMHO.Steve

Their panel bitmap is kind of nice looking, the TCAS is also nice but their overhead system logics could have been at least correctly modeled or have them fix.

I've seen the 500 is coming out, but I am curious what happened to their NG series?Also, if anyone's seen the recent SWA announcment, they'll be adding winglets to their 737-700 fleet.... Anyone thinking of repainting the BBJ in a SWA livery?Someone compared the 737 to FFX's model. The Ariane model is far more detailed and accurate--an expectation for payware. Mike is always quick to jump in and say people shouldn't compare the two. The FFX model stands on its own as a model one can enjoy many liveries in, for the cost of a download. The Ariane model stands on its own for detail. Both have a place (I have the UAL 737, plus several of Martin's freeware repaints). The FFX fills the gap for external shots, due to the great livery support it has.But I am waiting for Ariane's release of the NG, which was first suggested as ready to release almost six months ago. I may consider it a candidate for purchase, if it is as detailed as the '300 was and the price is kept out of the stratosphere.-John

Hey:Ariane's models are DEFINITELY some of the most detailed models around, and they're very accurate. But hey, they're payware. So it's really up to the user which is better.Cheers,http://forums.avsim.com/user_files/12447.jpgMember of the [a href=http://ffg.avsim.net" target="_blank]Freeware Flight Group [/a]

JohnHave you taken a look at the latest PMDG screenshots of their imminent 737NG release? (www.precisionmanuals.com)It looks like their version may well give Ariane 'food for thought' as it appears to be extremely detailed, has a fully-working FMC cockpit and free liveries. (Doesn't seem to have stewardesses or Board of Captains though...... :-lol )And I totally agree with your comments about FFX. Their 737s may not have a pop-out light that "looks good in fog" but all-in-all, they're excellent models and considering their price tag (;-) ) and all the repaints, those involved deserve medals!Toni.

Thanks Toni...I've been watching PMDG's project with great interest. Thanks for reminding me, as I haven't seen the latest shots yet. -JohnEdit: Took a peek at their latest shots, but someone might want to think about tweaking the shape of the nose a bit. Theirs looks a bit off--only part of the 737 NG "profile" that doesn't seem quite right. This link at airliners.net shows one of the SWA NG's... Can't wait to see it with winglets!http://www.airliners.net/open.file/366069/M/

no matter what other people think Ariane's model ist the very best visual model out on the payware market. it features the most realistic visual objects.see here all the closeupshttp://www.arianedesign.com/product.asp?de...id=1032&sku=159http://www.arianedesign.com/product.asp?de...id=1032&sku=161you won't get any other model with that much love to detailthe FFX 737th are great, they are freeware, but they a not accurate insome details! ;) thats no complain guys. you did a great job and it is a very nice bird. no doubt. :Din regards to PMDG, i am still waiting they said something about 4 weeks. hmm, where is it. the nose is still like the one from an Airbus, and other portions are not accurate enough for a Payware.the release of the 737-500 is great. it comes with some lovely features see here , it is great to couple with the DF panel until PMDG get's its panel ready i think Ariane will have it's 737-700 ready too. ;)have fun out there

If you like the 737 classics, Ariane is the only way to go. Sure, there is some bad press about them, but hey, who cares?Ariane 737 classics + Dreamfleet Panel + FFX sounds = Classic 737 Heaven! :-hahPMDG's NG series is going to be sensational! No two ways about it!

Any news if they're working on a merge for the -500 and the DF panel? I'll most definitely get a few if the merge will be ready at the release time. They might cost and arm and a leg and then there's that whole "history", but I'm more than willing to pay for what I consider quality.

Well I know about the PMDG's NG and can tell you that it is not ready yet, much more work being done, as for the nose shape John, I'll check it out. Let me say that once you get your hands on this FMS, you won't look back. Sure eye candy is important, but I don't fly from spot view, I can do many things already that PIC 767 could not do, that's not to say PMDG does not care about eye candy, THEY DO!. You cannot please everyone, you can try, but there will always be something someone does not like about a project. For all you hard core simmers, an example, wait until you program your route and notice the ND display every single item just like the real deal. Cyan inactive route, white modified route and magenta for active route. The FMC is incredible. It's all these types of details (there is this attention to detail through out the aircraft) that make this project shine. [h5]Best Wishes,Randy J. Smith[/h5][h6]Are You Ready For The Next Great one?
