Alright... here's the deal:

 

1) the FMS, though functional, is not yet tied in to the main flight systems... I.e. you cannot "fly" the FMS.  But it does "work".

2) Some people have experienced startup issues in the cold/dark full "real" start up.  This doesn't mean that you can't EVER start it up but you will not necessarily be able to do so "by the book".

3) the liveries are not yet completed and neither is the PK.

4) the manual is not yet completed though we can and will supply the manuals from which the plane is built as well as a QS guide

5) we have never EVER not delivered a project and do not intend to start now. (as previously stated, it would kill the rep and therefore, the company)

6) there are some minor bugs in the systems but they are, for the most part, low end. (the bugs, not the systems)

* 7) nightlighting is still a work in progress though it does work, it's imperfect.

* 8) We THINK we are less than a month from release but... things happen.  So you never know.

9) actual sounds are not yet implemented

10) the AP is a work in progress

* 11) No fuzz on the seats

The time line is still as it was... unable (and unwilling) to give a specific release date.  However, I did want to let you know that we are working on it.

 

It's MUCH closer than it was last time...

SDK?

 

Well, since the subject of an SDK has now been mentioned, ... :rolleyes:

 

There's an app called Virtual CDU (both android & iOS versions) that interacts with the FMC in FSX.  It operates both in windowed & full screen modes, and doesn't have lag issues that other similar apps out there do.  It currently supports the PMDG NGX & ifly 737.

 

Discussion at NGX forum:  http://forum.avsim.net/topic/401679-virtual-cdu-ngx-test/

 

Developer's website:  http://www.virtualavionics.com.br/Page/product/9_Virtual-CDU.html

 

Don't have a quote at hand, but somewhere I read that the developer was open to supporting other aircraft, saying that all he would need was an SDK for each specific aircraft.

 

It would be cool to have a version that could interact with the FMC on the Sperry 177 versions of the 737-200.  Just a thought ...

Milviz, can you be more specific on item number one? What' exactly does that mean I can't fly with the fms? There for show?

I think you're talking about the list of stuff that wasn't yet completed... so, I'm going to answer you though I am pretty sure that if you read a bit further you will see what you're looking for...

 

The FMS will fly the plane but only with the SP177.  You will, of course, have to read the manual to use it.  We will not be doing a tutorial on that as it is WAY to complex for that.

 

Navigraph support is "included" but, obviously, you will need to purchase the updates.  The methodology used is the same as ESDG.

 

Again, the following version(s) will be available:

 

1) Sperry 77 (no FMS)

2) Sperry 177 with FMS

3) any of the above with or without gravel kit

4) cargo, cargo combi and pax

 

There will be NO PCDS (or whatever the heck it is)

 

The DATA printer was removed as it ran out of ink and we couldn't figure out how to refill it...

 

The WX radar will NOT be working.  We MIGHT put TCAS in there... (MIGHT)

 

FPS is good to excellent and even fantastic given medium to high end systems.  No, it's not going to work on older systems.  Sorry.

 

It is NOT for FS9 nor will it ever be.

 

We do not intend to do any other 737 versions.

 

For those who pre-ordered, it's still moving and you will be sent your version at least 3 days before everyone else gets theirs.

 

For the first two weeks, we will be selling it on our site exclusively.

 

The F-1 installer WILL probably give you a false positive about a virus.  This is NOT a virus.  Please DISABLE your anti-virus prior to downloading and installing the product.

 

Paint kit and manual will be going up ... soon ish.

 

Sound set is from a real 737-200

 

Support will ONLY be offered off our site as we do not wish to "help" the pirates out there.  Sorry but that means no support here on this particular product.

 

We are still debating DRM because, after 3 days, the Sabre went up on the torrents and within a week, over 10K were downloaded.  Not amusing.  Not at all.

 

Price will be 50$ USD.

 

Previous customers will get a 10% discount for the first 2 weeks.

 

I think that's it... 

 

If you have other questions, feel free to ask.
