PMDG 737 NGX: PMDG's attitude toward realism

Recommended Posts

I just got EZDOK (EZCA) and still playing with it but man oh man oh man, I can't wait to use it in the NGX. It really helps you appreciate the detail of the JS41 VC and the MD-11 greatly! Hopefully before the NGX is released I'll even get my vertical slew to work again :PCoupled with my TrackIR, it's just incredible to see these VC's the way PMDG intended. It almost gives it a complete new look.@MattHaha, no problem. I just hate to shorten someones name without being given the ok since it may not be welcomed by some :wink:And yes, I feel like I know you as well from that thread, and I'll be back there in a day or three, asking even more Q's if I don't find the answers soon, hehe.

Is it bad that I started smiling while reading this? I hope PMDG includes the "fs shortcuts" in the fmc. On the MD11, it was a nice feature.

In the bottom (assuming PMDG He%20He.gif) pic, i see the "PWS" is not illuminated... Too bad FSX didnt have a good weather system and you could simulate that function in as well!
The PWS (that's "Predictive Windshear System") actually will be there - we can model that, FS gives you what amounts to windshear all the time with it's famous wind shifts...

Already in and it's far more extensive than the MD-11 was too.
Top one is PMDG?
This is too funny. tongue.gif

The top pic shows a little reflection of light in the top left portion of the bezel, That leads me to believe that the top is the real pic :( other than that..... We are in for a treat fellas!

Yeah the lighting makes it obvious, but for being in FS, the PMDG one looks wonderful. She'll be well worth the wait. :(

The picture looks great, can't wait to see the full version. My credit card is ready!For the previous 737NG there was a great tutorial on just about every system written by Timothy Metzinger. That document really helped me get into the aircraft. I hope something similar will be written for this one as well.

I've never regarded the 737 as anything special, never even bothered to learn it in the FS9 version. BUT ..... I'm beginning to think that I'll be spending some time in this VC !!! And trying to learn everything there is about the 737.Golli

All is I can say is amazing. I honestly couldn't tell which was the real one for like 5 minutes until someone pointed out the light reflection on the bottom plastic of the top picture.

I agree Golli, I honestly have absolutely "0" interest in the 737, none, natta, zip,,, haha. Never have but sure I will. For me it's just a matter of something being simulated and modeled well. From my first PMDG aircraft (and others before them) I thrived on the complex systems and challenges. From that point on I will grow to love it like I did the MD11. I would never look twice if I saw an MD11 in real life, but now I would probably get shot climbing the fence just to touch it! Haha.

As far as I'm concerned the day this gets released is the day I celebrate christmas, birthday, Easter and any other celebratory day combined. Can't wait. Nothing like an update from RSR to put a big smile on your face.Mike Kendall

Amazing stuff as always. Does anyone know what those little white dots in the lower left hand corner of the bezels do?

Did anyone notice that on the first picture the plane is on a slant. The artificial horizon is a little slanted.

So I surmised from the ILS info that the picture was taken at KMSP. Next step is to take that DME data and figure out where exactly the airplane was on the airport. And that will have killed at least a little time between now and the next update.

We're using the Boeing pantone kit. We got it right. :( We'll be rolling out a bit more for you guys shortly. I think you will be quite happy with what you see.

Very good eye ;)RSR told me to tell you all that's because Paul was standing on the left side of the plane when I took the pic./ducking tongue.gifSeriously though, something was probably slightly off with the strut or tire - the IRSes are extremely sensitive and will pick stuff like that up.
