777-300ER release imminent?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

20 november was the update that the SP1 is almost ready, 300ER is going out for testing. It should take a couple of weeks.

 

They were 6 weeks working on it and were half way through!

 

So, we are 4 weeks later now. My guess the release of 300ER and SP1, which come together, is imminent. Either this saturday, or a Christmas release is my best guess.

 

 

What do you guys think? This 300ER is so long and so hot, I am longing for her more than ever. This is the real long hauler!!

 

Imagine those flights with Cathay Livery, imagine those flights with AA livery, I am drewling thinking about it. I will be addicted to it!!

 

 

 

This is a Christmas must have!

 

 

Peter

I hope it is, I can't wait till I can replace MD-11 with 777-300ER on some major European routes of my FScaptain virtual airline. So far I've been just too lazy to learn all the differences of MD-11 compared to other stuff I fly, last time I tried I made some mistake couldn't start the engines using proper procedures and ended up using CTRL + E which somehow messed up the engine sounds for the whole 10 hour flight. :lol:

 

777 on the other hand didn't take too much time to learn as I'm already familiar with the 757 & 767 and 737NGX.

I hope it won't come out until mid-January. I have been bleeding dry with all the christmas shopping, it would be a torture to see the 300ER and being unable to buy it!

 

But no, really, I'd be glad if it came by Christmas day.

Seeing that Christmas is in 5 days and the beta team hasn't seen it yet, I doubt it.

I think the release is on january 2014. it's much too quiet around the -300ER, so they are still at hard work to release a great product.

Ok,

 

 

Inside man! Roger that! January or february it is!

 

Haha, nevertheless, it will be a nice one to fly around the world! Around da world!!!!

 

Heavy a nice Christmas and a good new year!

 

P.S.

 

PMDG is more reliable than FSLabs, so, I am pretty sure the 300ER is going to be released sooner than the Airbus 320X I am anticipating to buy.

 

 

Regards,

Could be. Alas, I am not. I'd be showing it off if I had it.

I never understood these topics...it's the same with 737&600-700 resp. 800-900

 

From the outside, you might slightly see the difference, from the inside it is barely even less (zone conrol and other little stuff...

 

You fly it to 3000ft, some more, some less...engage a/p and then land it sometime after....

 

I for myself love the -200..., where is the difference, despite these awesome outside cameras (and maybe even those won'#t be included) Please note, that I don't want to be hating, I'm just curios about what everybody drives to be so curious about it

Flight dynamics maybe, PMDG certainly won't use same FD with both models.

He's not bluffing - I wish he was though!!  :smile:

This sounds, rather, strange - however I'm looking forward to landing faster on a regular basis. The LR's VREF is 137 and 138 at MLW - it can make approaches seem somewhat similar. Whereas the 300ER generally lands a lot faster, because it's generally got heavier loads with its larger MLW. That and it's a long beauty! But yeah, if you're the average simmer it's not that different to the LR.

It will be after the holiday...maybe early January.

If they release it this Monday, we start getting issues and wanted to have some sort of quick help support.

Nobody wants to be around that week working, especially before the Xmas holiday.

What is wrong with this 777-200LR?

 

Going back to NGX? T7 is good as it is now. Why the disgust for the T7 Woycek?

Of course the SP1 will remove all the glitches, although these are minor. But the 300ER will release together with the SP1, so no fuss right?

You are aware the 300ER is accompanying SP1, right?

One day in the first quarter of 2014 (rather by the end).

Let the guys take their time required. No need to hurry up things.
