Looks like a nice model, but I don't have much interest in Tube liners.

They still haven't been able to get the bogies right on the main gear. They should be hanging front tires down.

It looks very much like the 757 in the cockpit so I wonder what would be new?

There are a ton of new features that add onto the 757. You can find a complete list of features on their own forums.

The PFD, ND and FMC/CDU are different.

Looks good but will check out reviews videos first. A video showing the main features would have been more useful, than Thomas' eye candy / wet dream one lol.

When they fix the 757/777 issues with the FMS and release that, then I'll look at this. Flightfactor is shaping up to be another Captain Sim like developer that keeps pushing out new stuff without fixing the existing first.

There at least 4 streams already of ~1.5-2 hours flight.

 

People just say "pass" because of their previous products , which I don't have but I'm aware of their issues.

So Im not a fan of their products , but I really suggest for you folks to not judge yet.

 

I wathced al the streams , this 767 seems to be awesome.

The cockpit is really beautiful and the colors look great in each time/weather.

 

Someone mentioned wrong gears , so check carefully , it is fixed and the animation is correct (I also commented on their thread at the org when it was wrong)

What issues ?

Try derating the engines using assumed temp. That is just one of the many technical errors

I absolutely agree and thank you for bringing this out there. 

 

Throwing my 2 cents out here - 

 

People are saying "pass" from their past products. But ever considered the changes that went into the product? 

 

I've watched all the live streams from the 2 beta testers, and they featured enough for one smart simmer to come down to a conclusion that the aircraft is *the* 767 we've (or at least *I've*) been waiting for for the X-Plane 10 community and in my opinion the systems outbeat Level-D's 767.

 

This simulation of the 767 is focused on the systems aspect - the aircraft software and how detailed it's simulated, not how much eye-candy one can get, even though it's already beautiful is every aspect. 

 

And sure, it will have some sort of bugs, but that's the way software development is. There's no piece of software that's absolutely correct. 

 

I played a small minuscule role contributing to updates for the Aerowinx PSX 747-400. It's a professional sim used by training centres such as one at KLM. It is still, to this day, being updated because of errors, bugs... etc. And this is a sim that can be used for professional training. 

 

FlightFactor is an entertainment simulator, not like the sim I assisted. It could have bugs... It will have bugs... but that doesn't mean it's a showstopper, unless its something serious - but if it did, beta testers would have caught it. 

 

I guess what I'm trying to say is, even if you're not buying the product, at least give them a chance and not come to conclusions based on past products instantly. Wait for reviews to come in. I'll certainly be writing one and if AVSIM allows me, I'll be posting it here. 

 

(disclaimer - I am NOT part of Flight Factor, nor am I representing FF in any way. I am just a customer, like many of you. And what I wrote is my own personal opinion, and I have absolutely zero intentions of criticizing anyone)

I agree with Henry on the subject. Wait till they actually release the product before you decide to hang them. Anyways, my hat's off to this group of developers who have stuck with X-Plane where others have turned up their noses.

Sorry guys, track record matters.

 

 

The tech errors I found in just a few flights were so glaring that it would have been impossible to miss had they been going for study level

Makes me glad that I am not that technical. I just get in 757, program the fmc, take off and autoland at the destination. It all works great without me searching for small errors.

Guys, do you have any links for these beta streams? Google, Twitch and YouTube have yielded nothing for me.

 

I am hoping the 767 will be as good as it looks, all I said was that I would wait until I saw some reviews. Some people feel that they have been shortchanged in the past and have expressed their reluctance to jump in on day one. That is understandable, they do charge premium prices for their products, but unfortunately have a record of quickly moving on to the next project leaving many customers feeling that older products have not reached their full "potential".

Or you know, they could take what they learned with past products and apply it to their next release. 

And we have so few developers for X-Plane that aim to make a high quality, complex aircrafts, do we really need to bash someone's product before it's even released?

 

Wait for reviews, videos and streams and then judge it.
