Recommended Posts

Guest acezboy561

Hi Level D,Can you give a rough idea on where the 757 is? The 757 isn't a must have for me or I would of gone for the CS 757 or qw 757, but im going for yours.Any update at all, even "its coming" will do :(

Ya I have been over to the QW website several times, I have been holding out but its getting harder to resist, with no updates or news at all tells me they are along way off from finishing things.

LOL -"could have been cancelled" from the guy with the CS banner...The 757 is coming. Unlike cynical and opportunist developers who rush to market with half-finished, half-modelled products (hoping to capitalize on the dearth of 757's in the market), Level-D takes it time to capture the full breadth of the aircraft. Yes, quality takes time.

I am sure that when it comes out it will be great as the 757 was said to be Landing Soon in the Level-D November 2005 Operations Manual and Guide. JeffG

LOL, a similar thought went through my mind when reading that post. Certainly no one will accuse LevelD of "rushing" the 757 to market :( There can be little doubt however that it will be a worthy addition when it does arrive.

I went ahead and got the QW 757, Now that they have worked out most of the bug. Its an ok product! Great sounds, Exterior model is the best. VC is very nice. But as we all know. Systems are very limited. And thats why we are all waiting on the 757.I have loved the LVL 767 for years, I still love it to death. But im growing more and more ###### of at LVL D for there lack of anything to do with the project. I understand some of the reasons to keep it on the down low but come on? gives us a round about time we can expect to see it. or something.If it does ever show up. YES im going to buy it. And YES im going to fly the thing until the wings fall off! I just want to know what year its comming out. I mean. We only have like a year and a half left until its over right? lol.You reply to this post with any negative or "Another person asking when when when " subjects, You wont get a reply from me, I dont have time for ya.YC Waiting

Hi Daryl,With all due respect, if I'm not mistaken, Level-D announced the 75' in 2005 or so. I fully understand quality takes time, but even a company like PMDG (making equally high-end FS aircraft) doesn't take 5 years or more on the development of an aircraft. It's not even the loooooooooooong development time LDS needs (hey if you need it, by all means take it!), but more the total complete lack of communication, giving us customers not a single clue if we can expect it this year, next year, 2012 or even beyond that.I know developers hate to give dates because we, the anxious customers, will start to shout if they're 1 minute past that date. But PLEASE give us some rough update on where you are with the project. Not asking for a timescale, just hoping to hear what's still left to develop or so...

Unlike other development teams, Level-D Simulations is a seriously PART-TIME concern. Wade, Laurent and Pedro (the principal developers) have growing families and full-time jobs outside of the FS world.Family and work come first. Let me explain WHAT has happened...When the 757 project was announced in 2005, FSX was not yet released. When FSX was released, the 757 was put on hold and the 767 for FS9 was sent into development for upgrade to FSX. 3 updates (and a small EHSI patch) for the 767 for FSX were delievered. The price to upgrade from the FS9 version was just $14.95.Once Wade and Laurent and Pedro got their mits on FSX, they realized that going back to FS9 and the 757 would have to wait. Of course, ACES shut down, and now FSX is the final version of the FS franchise (at least for now). With no version of FS on the horizon, what's the hurry? ;)The team are working on the 757, but no dates or progress reports are forthcoming until Wade, Laurent or Pedro say so.Rest assured, a 757 from Level-D Simulations will fly.

Thank you very much for giving us this insight in the background.I appreciate the effort that is being put into this project. I didn't realize that LDS isn't a full-time development group.I'll sure wait patiently and as soon as the 757 is released, I'll be among the first to buy it :-)

Hi guysJust to add a little humour, I wonder if Michelangelo ever gave dates for when the Sistine Chapel ceiling was going to be completed, and at the other end of the scale my Spaghetti bolognese will not be ready until it tastes right. So somewhere in the middle I am happy to wait till Level D say their product is right. I have the 767 so know the 757 will be a good one when it comes out.regardsJohn Calleja

I personally don't believe its on its way.I have been watching the forum for years......and believe its about just that. Website hits perhaps??I wish I could be more positive, but at the end of the day, Leve-D customers aren't treated very respectfully...at all!!I have put over £70 their way over the years, how many others have done the same? Quite a few I should think!

I didnt realise by purchasing a product now that Level-D then had to keep you informed of all future products including prices and availibilty.I shall be demanding a full refund at the earliest opportunity for this breach of contract. If had known this when I had purchased the 767 4 years ago then I would have purchased Captain Sim instead :(

I am just a fan of customer service......you are obviously a bit of a sarcastic clown....Talking%20Ear%20Off.gifAt the end of the day, the highly talented guys at level-d know they have a huge fan base, and as I have previously pointed out...I am a loyal customer.It actually does them more harm than good to 'hide' any upcoming product (speaking purely from a business/marketing aspect), so why not share it with the guys patiently waiting?Going on your profile, you are obviously working within FS development, perhaps your opinion is slightly biased?All the best............

In my experience the release of any information before the product is released simply brings a flood of questions.When there is information to be released, it will be released.What sort of information would satisfy the loyal customer?This is a serious question.

Hi DShutt,Thanks for the serious reply.I appreciate the level-d guys are busy, and also don't really want to 'open a can of worms' be releasing information about upcoming products.But on the other side of the coin, some FSX guys are huge fans of the 'hobby', and the enjoyment it brings. I for one, have been waiting for the 757 to be released ever since it was announced many years ago.......the reason being I simply love the lds 76 because it has just the right level of complexity, and I get that 'buzz' from using it. As I was made to believe the 757 was on its way, I have been waiting for it to be released and avoiding other products.I caved recently, and purchased the CS 75, and was dissapointed as it doesn't have the correct 'usability' for me.Then there is the QW 75, which reading from the forums, has the same sort of features as the CS product.So as you can imagine, I would love the LDS 75 to be released, or just to know it is on its way!What sort of information would I like? Any screen shots just to show us guys that its on its way! It may bring questions, but at the end of the day, thats just the sort of marketing that the project would need!!I am a huge fan of lds........help us out a bit here!!All the best, keep up the good work (I hope!!):(

garf25, I do not appreciate insulting remark's such as the one you made, that's what emoticons are there for. I would hope that you refrain from using that kind of language in the future. Best,

With respect gentlemen, I class this as a very sarcastic reply to a legitimate request, bearing in mind the money I have handed over to them over the years:

I believe the term 'sarcastic clown' in no way involves offensive language, but I shall in future use the retrospective 'emoticon....Shame%20On%20You.gif
