LevelD 767. Really THAT good?

Recommended Posts

Guest jasonwinn

hello :)I have been looking at the new PSS 777, debating whether to buy it now or wait till some of the bugs are fixed.I see alot of people talking about comparing it to PMDG ect, one name that has popped up was the LevelD 767.I have been out of the loop for the last 6 months, so this name is new to me. I see its a Flight1 bird.I Do not have a payware 767 in my hanager, and was wondering if its THAT good? people are putting it on the level of PMDG so that opened my eyes.Just would love some feedback from actual owners on this bird!Thanks!

I have flown real aircraft for about 25 years, and have been flying MSFS as well as military and commmercial flight sims worth millions of dollars. The Level D 767 is the best thing that has happened to MSFS in my opinion, as far as realistic flying aircraft, that I have come across so far. Buy it, fly it, and you will feel the same way as I do.

PMDGs 747 and LDS 767 are neck in neck as far as the best title goes. If you fly only from the VC, PMDGs wins hands down. But both are quality add-ons, the 747 needs a service pack though which will come sometime... I just wish they made a 767F

Awesome, thanks for the comments guys.I am going crazy here with just learning of the LDS 767 ( dont see how i missed it ) and the PSS 777.I think I may just have to go with both because then my boeing collection be complete besides a payware 757 ;)

Top-notch. There's so much subtle innovation you don't see hyped up because it all blends and feels so natural...The model is probably the most accurate 767 I have seen for a while. It runs great. The VC LOOKS great. The panel viewpoint leaves a bit to be desired, but not bad. The sounds are fairly decent but still pretty generic...All in all worth the $40...very.

Both the LDS 767 and the PMDG 747 are both completely awesome. The 747 has some stuttering issues, but I've combatted that by using the VC which is by far the best VC in the business. I would say that it's indeterminable which is better between the two, I am a huge fan of both, and I would recommend getting both if you have the money.Jeff

I'd suggest waiting a bit for the 777 after a patch or 2 to fix some of the issues

The LD767 is as good as everyone here has mentioned. Its a mature product with zero bugs as far as Im concerned, especially after SP2.1, which is in the basic package now when you purchase.The liveries are very well done and free. I just downloaded a UPS and a FedEx repaint, both of which are impressive to the point that I now can say I have a couple of 767 freighters too.I personally would, as already suggested, wait a little before buying new releases because they get polished as more time passes, alleviating some of the early frustrations.

Yes, it really is that good - it really is the best.

Yes,the 767 is amazing - blew me away with excellence from the core systems right up to minute details like every external light being controlled by the appropriate switch. I particularly love the liquid smooth crts, both in vc and 2d.The T7 is a nice product, outstanding in some aspects, 2d panel and vc look great, but smooth displays (you can adjust fps for each) comes at a significant price in frames. And I'm sorry but the autoflight system is in many respects just too aggressive (pitch modes especially) - at this point anyway.Long and short when I get into the 767 I feel like I've stepped into a product that is outside fs9's limits - the 777 does not give me that impression at all except maybe for the weather radar, and even that is compromised when it's mounted on a nav display that has to be limited to 6 or 9 fps(maximum is 18fps, but impacts general sim performance as stated above, especially at big airports).regards,Markhttp://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a319/markrey/lsd2.jpgXPHomeSP2/FS9.1/3.2HT/1GIG/X700pro256

He means (jokingly, I'm sure) that if people start saying the 767 is worth even more than they paid for it, LDS might be encouraged to hike the price of the 757 accordingly.Of course I'm sure it doesn't work like that - or does it???Ian

It's ok, by modern FS 2004 add-in standards. Problem is, it simulates a pretty old (and, I believe, soon to be discontinued) aircraft that now hovers uncomfortably between these days and the olden days.The earlier incarnation for FS 2000 - 767 PIC - was a better overall product for desktop PC users. Bags of innovation and entertainment there. Same can't really be said for the current LDS version.If I could be bothered with 767s, I would still use 767 PIC in FS 2000 (but not FS 2002, because much of the product functionality was not updated for the latter).Michael

Best $39.95 I have spent in my life. You seriously don't know how amazing it is until you try it!I think most people need to relise there are also other aircraft out there that are just as good if not better than PMDG and LDS aircraft.

Are they still flogging it for $39.95? If so, can't say it would be the best purchase at that price in my life. For around
