Landing Gear

The back landing gears on the 777 should they be off set.  Instead of all of them touching on landing should they have been off set?

Should the main landing gears be off set?  Just wondering...

This isn't a 747/737. You don't change the gear lever from up - off! once they're up they're up.

Here is a pic of what I am talking about... The rear gear is off set. 

 

Looks exactly the same in the PMDG model (slightly different angle but shows the "offset" not sure its called that...)

I'm still not sure what you're talking about...

 

Are you talking about the angle at which they hang when airborne?  If so, yes.  They're supposed to hang like that.

 

On the ground, they should all be on the ground.

That is what I guessed too. 4 rear tires, last tire is lowest 1st tire is highest - otherwise known as an offset it seems!

OK cool.  I think when you do a instant replay the main gear does not offset.  If it does it when your flying, that is OK by me!

Now that you are talking about landing gears, my question is: How do I pull the landing gear up on take off. I tried the "G" key and does not do anything, and also the cargo doors remains open.

 

Plz need help in those two items. Everytging else is ok.

Yeah replay causes a lot of things to not act properly.
