300ER Beta Preview - SIA Livery Request

Recommended Posts

Flew into RJAA this afternoon to test a few things and the lighting ended up being kinda nice, so I snapped some shots of the SIA livery that someone asked for ages ago.

 

Also, in the interest of full disclosure, I'm really just taking shots of the 300ER to torture you all  :lol: (but only kinda...)

Next up?

 

RJAA-KIAD to go home, test its ability to stretch its legs, and end my following along with my dad's epic trip last month for work (KIAD-KSFO-YSSY-YBBN-YSCB-YMML-WMKK-WSSS-RJAA-KIAD).

 

ANA, in case anyone is interested.  Might get snappy if the lighting/conditions are right.

Ha! You can't torture me with screenshots of this livery, I am aching for the *script corrupted* livery.

 

Until screenshots of that one is posted, I just keep reminding myself of the line from the Matrix, there is no 777-300ER ;).

One question I have on the new 777-300.  Does Boeing offer a HUD in the 777.300?  I looked a ton of Youtube 777 videos and saw none?

Don't think I've ever seen the HUD on a 773 I could be wrong. Seems FedEx are installing them on all their fleet so it's possible

On another note I request the PIA 773 livery, when or if you have time. Many thanks if you can. ☺

Beautiful! I guess when the -300ER arrives, my 200LR will be parked for quite some time...

The 77W is conquering my heart. :P

Amazing shots. Any enb or effects using for lighting in fsx. Looks realistic. If possible make some tips in your videos some time.

 

One jet airways livery shot if possible.

Thankyou

Hmm, I wonder if our PMDG-777 will have the HUD option available?

 

Nope.

 

FDX is the only one I'm aware of, and it's aftermarket at that...

 

 

If possible make some tips in your videos some time.

 

Might.  It's really still the same aircraft, so I'm not sure how useful a tips video would be.

No, this is an after-market option, not something Boeing offers. The options we do are limited to the official Boeing ones.

This is awesome. I really hope this is the last build for the beta team. :) A release this month would be great.

Cool shots but I really don't get why people like the ENB mod that much. In my opinion it just washes out the textures and makes colours a lot brighter. Sure, it looks cool at the horizon and provides some interesting lighting effects but remember, it's a sim and not battlefield. 

 

Just my opinion though.

Doesn't Boeing offer a HUD for the 777F? Or is my memory failing me...

Thanks for sharing this beautiful paint job with us, one of the best out there IMO.

I agree but especially when taking screenshots ENB can become quite in handy.

Just my opinion though. 

 

In my opinion, the ENB I use makes it a lot more realistic looking.  In the real plane, when it's daylight outside, you're going to lose the gauges when you look outside, and when you look back inside, outside washes out a whole bunch.  The one I use approximates that pretty well.  Night time actually looks like night, too, which is my biggest criticism of the sim at its default (and this is coming from the guy who has a ridiculous amount of night hours - pretty sure it's over 50% of my total time now).

 

Moreover, the idea that you can keep your head up but still clearly see the gauges just bothers me.  Granted, cameras and the human eye process slightly differently, but an iris and an aperture work very much the same: narrow for bright, darks drop out; open for dark, brights wash out.  You can see in this video how dark the gauge look because the camera is metering for the external light (just as your eye would):

 

(also - ignore the weird music...it's the YouTube free stuff, and I only added it in because the time-lapse segment would've otherwise been soundless)

 

 

I agree Battlefield is a little heavy-handed on the light effect, but if you've spent any appreciable amount in a real plane and have had to continuously adjust for the disparate lighting situations, you come to appreciate what ENB does bring to the table.

 

Like you said, though: it's all personal preference/opinion.

Nope.  This was mentioned above.  FDX bought them and had a vendor with an STC'd mod install them.

I agree with all of your points, however I don't think the ENB-mod for FSX is able to replicate this particular effect and brightness adjustment of the human eye all too well.

 

There was a combination of sweetFX and ENB setting that I found to be the best of them all on the Flightbeam forum some time ago but I can't find the thread anymore. I'll contact the guys and see if I can get those files again - would be nice to see a comparison between various lighting mods.
