Reboot Feature Implementation

Recommended Posts

Simmers,

 

Having recently purchased (and fallen in love with) the NGX: Reboot after owning the legacy version for years, there were a few things I was wondering with regards to the 777. Specifically, if any of the new features rolled out in Reboot could be implemented in a future FS2Crew 777 update. Now, as obviously neither a real-world 737ng nor 777 pilot, I do not know the intricacies of CRM with regards to the 777, and these calls could indeed only be present in the 737, and not part of 777 SOP, though I imagine at least some of these are used by 777 carriers. These calls really improve the workload, flexibility of operation, and crew dynamic in the NGX, and I feel could do similar with the 777. These features/calls include:

  • FMC-style configuration
  • More advanced briefings (windshear/bird concerns, ETOPS, forced return, self-tracking, crew change, first leg, etc...)
  • Fuel checks call from FO
  • "cleared to close long taxi/short taxi"
  • "Confirm execute" when programming the FMC
  • "Clear left/clear on the left" when crossing a runway or entering the runway for departure
  • Flight controls check responses (this may be a 737-specific item, I wasn't sure)
  • Lack of gear up confirmation until 400'
  • "Bug up" command
  • "Set VREF plus 5" command
  • "Cleared to release the cabin/cabin crew?" during climb
  • "You have control" before descent preparation

There are a few other things too though I believe those are company-specific. I only mention these because I've been told no 777:Reboot is in the works considering its newness, though with all the fantastic technological developments in the NGX department, I was wondering if any of that could be ported over into the triple.

 

Thanks!

Derek

Hi Derek,

 

Perhaps in a future 777 update we can add some of these features from NGX Reboot.

 

Cheers,

Great to hear - thank you Bryan!
