FF 777 Upgraded

Recommended Posts

Just found out that the 777 Worldliner has been updated to V 1.8

 

New cockpit graphics are the change as I understand it.

Thanks for the heads up John. The cockpit was one of the reasons I haven't flown this much since I bought it. I'll give it another go.

In my opinion, Pumper's cockpit is still better even though the new FF one uses some of his textures. The MCP in the new version is still 2D, while Pumer's MCP has 3D buttons, for example. That said, i'm judging by the pictures and haven't really tried it out yet, so I can't judge too much.

Everyone at the .org says that Flightfactor is more or less done with the 777, and they are focussing mainly on the A350. Unfortunate, but it's probably true.

 

Tony, you might consider purchasing the 200LR version and installing Pumper's cockpit modification, which also contains several fixes, courtesy of Pumper himself and Marc, alias DLH560 on the .org.

Actually just tried the 1.8 cockpit and I like it more than Pumper's. The textures seem "smoother" if that makes sense. Hard to describe - it just looks better so I'm sticking with it.

I too find that the 1.8 cockpit is very good and for some reason, it seems that the FMC is easier to get along with although I don't see any differences in the setup.

Has anyone else noticed that the rotating beacon is not visible? It looks like there might be some reflection off of the fuselage but I don't see the light actually flash.

Pumper is remaking his cockpit to work with 1.8 and doing more improvements.

Yes - The reflection is also visible from the cabin on the wings.  It's a small concession when everything else works so well - I think..
