Hi guys,

 

 

I know in the past PMDG have said that there will be no virtual cabin for the ngx etc.

 

I have always prefered it, as an extension of the exterior view, not the VC..

 

 

Nowadays we all pretty much get the performance we are after in the external views [wingviews spot etc] it is only in the VC where we tend to struggle..

 

 

This is Captain sim yes, and no I am not supporting the company, but in the interest of fairness I believe that they have done a fantastic job here

 

It really makes one feel like they're in a 777, as to be fair, the majority of the customers here, only ever see this part of the aircraft so to truly FEEL like we are flying our beloved 777. I would really like to see this added at some point.

 

 

 

 

 

 

What do you think, will PMDG CONSIDER adding a virtual cabin like the above.

Personally, I think the virtual cabin which the NGX has is more than good enough.

To my understanding PMDG simulates cockpits of airliners to the best degree of realism possible on computers and not virtual cabins. I buy PMDG products to have a great time flying the aircraft from the cockpit. If I want to see the cabin, I can go to YouTube and watch some videos.

In my opinion it is better the Tripple 7 is released one hour earlier than to have a highly detailed virtual cabin, which will only cost performance, and eats up some disc space.

How many polys does that require? It does look darn good! But I think I'll stick to the flight deck :)

I rather use that resources on making the rain effect on the windshield that a Virtual Cabin. That my point of view.

To be honest, I've always secretly hoped that PMDG would change their mind at some point and include an optional virtual cabin. That thought I kept at the back of my mind, always trying to convince myself as to why it's not necessary, but after seeing this video, I really miss it's absence in the PMDG 777X. I wish they'd think about it, and maybe include it in a future expansion. That's my opinion. That cabin in the video is simply AWESOME!

Please don't - this is a simulation from the pilot's perspective, not from the PAX - everybody can experience that in real life easily. IMO, they could even leave out the external model, i fly from the VC, not from the outside, otherwise i could just switch to microsoft flight - but i guess most of you will stone me for this opinion around here.... :Whistle:

Leave cabin modeling to captainsim, and let pmdg do what they excel at.

 

Pmdg has never been about excessive eye candy, and personally I don't think they should start now.

I agree

How old are you? Money doesn't grow on trees to suddenly go.. Hey, I want to go on a 777 today what shall it be??

 

I would prefer a full visual simulation of the 777, not just the front and wings.

their 757 and 767 also look the same, Captain Sim are pros at VC Cabins.

I fully agree.

Every minute pmdg doesn't spend on programming a virtual cabin the 777 will probably be released earlier.

As said before, leave that to Captain Sim.

Hi,

 

Well, not being so extremist, I would say that I agree on some points. Well for sure not everybody can afford buying a ticket on a T7 just for experiencing what it is as a pax. But on another hand, on fsx, I could do without a virtual cabin and even without a nice exterior as long as most (or all) of the systems are accurately designed and the virtual cockpit fully usable.

I always fly in VC with a track IR and I love spending a lot of time in preparing the plane and managing the flight.

I used to fly the Level-D 767 which was not the most beautiful visual model I have ever seen but was really nice to fly.

And finally, with the NGX, I think I found the perfect bird. If we reasonably guess that the T7 will include some improvements and maybe some extra functions, so I will definitely lose my social life flying that bird!

 

Cheers

"this is a simulation from the pilot's perspective, not from the PAX" - Who said it was?

 

I don't think he was talking about flight sim in general, but about PMDG products. That's what they've always ben up to. At least from my understanding, their focus is on the flight deck and the systems, not on the passengers. If you want a fancy virtual cabin, you're at the wrong forum. Buy the "other" 777. You'll get a delightful cabin to look at, but don't complain about systems simulation quality.

 

I would prefer a full visual simulation of the 777, not just the front and wings.

 

You should be thankful that they still include a low res. cabin, because I bet that their wish was not to spend time on it.

 

Personally, I think the virtual cabin which the NGX has is more than good enough.

Jonathan just said exacly what I think about it.

So many poly's that it isn't actually in their 777 with the VC. It's the VC or that..

As much as it looks nice. I have zero interest in this within FS. However it does look pretty cool.

first, i'm 26 and i've never had the chance of flying in a 777 (yet ;) ). But i still stick to my point that no matter how much money you have, the chances to get a ride in a 777 are much, much higher than actually flying it from the cockpit. i just state my opinion, nothing more and nothing less. I love pmdg so much because they pay so much attention of modelling the airplane in great detail from the pilot's perspective!i know others have different priorities and i thoroughly value and respect their opinions and i hope you can respect mine too. kind regards

I like the NGX's virtual cabin as well. I accidentally voted for yes, I meant to vote no.

I voted no, in fact I would sacrifice a few barely noticeable exterior animations to free them up for VC stuff like the sun shade, movable cockpit seats, etc. While a virtual cabin may be neat FSX limitations would take things away from the exterior and VC.

 

It would be really neat if you can open the cockpit window like in Project Tupolev or the Boeing 377 COTS.

Yeah definitley not something that I would want. Much more interested in the cockpit.
