If I recall correctly, it is among the variants included in the initial release base package, along with the -ERF, -F, -BCF, and -M.

Will the 744 v3 include the ER variant in the base package?

 

From a post by RSR a while back:

"2) Is the 747-400F being made?:  Yes.  We are building the 747-400/F/ER/M/BCF and the 747-8/F  We may add to this list at our discretion."

 

So, in the 400 product, you're getting:

  • 747-400 (the 747 you all know and love)
  • 747-400F (the freighter version of the 747 you know and love - easy to spot as it looks like a 400 with a 100-sized upper deck)
  • 747-400ER (the 747 you all know and love, for longer)
  • 747-400ERF (the F with some ER stuff in it)
  • 747-400M (the combi version of the 747 with a rear cargo door)
  • 747-400BCF (BCF means Boeing Converted Freighter, and it is outwardly similar to the M)

     

    ...and each engine type of all of those.

 

Just to clarify the 400 versus the 8:

"5) Will the 747-400 and the 747-8 be in the same package?:  No, these will be two different products.  Currently we envision the 747-8 as an expansion package to the 747-400.  (As always- information subject to change- there are some variables here that we don't control so it is under review...)"

Hi Kyle, you know if TOPCAT will simulate the 8/F ??

 

No idea. Something to ask them, perhaps.

TOPCAT is dead in the water according to the developers. I believe the answer is no.

Have they stated that outright?

Yes. In reply to an email I sent to FlightSimSoft or whoever the developer was. The reply was from Judith Blaschegg a cohort of Christian Gill.

I'm sure someone will work up some sort of program. At the very least, there's usually an Excel worksheet floating around somewhere.

Well that sucks. It has seemed like all of their attention has been on PFPX but I find TOPCAT to be a pretty invaluable tool. Maybe they'll open up the file format so that third parties can create profiles a la PFPX.

I love my TOPCAT.  I would suggest that we head over to their forum and politely ask for this.
