There's a great picture by one of the beta testers of the cockpit that you can rotate around for a beautiful view of the cockpit. :)


Question for the PMDG team. I see what I think is weather radar. Will this functionality require other software from another developer to operate, or is it all included in this product? I, personally, would prefer the latter for simplicity and for financial reasons.

Like the other products, it requires ASN or AS2016. Weather radar in the sim is dependent on a weather program making 3D precip info available. It doesn't exist in FSX/P3D by default so, the alternative is impossible.

Where have you been Matthew?  Wx radar has been in the 737 and 777 for a long time.

I know. I was HOPING it would've been included in the 747 in an all-in-one package. I'm not made of money, unfortunately.

Hmmm shame on facebook...and not something the forum can support instead.

 

I'd rather not have to sell my soul just to find out about PMDG feature.

It has been a part of the base package on the 777 and 737 for a while.  The 737 was added as a service pack (but free).  I can't remember for sure, but the 777 may have come straight away with WXR.

But if you can afford a $150 add on aircraft you can surely afford  premium weather software such as AS16

When the forum supports more than simple jpegs, then I guess it could happen. Until that point, though...

Never quite understood this viewpoint - it only takes as much info as you give it - but your electronic presence is up to you. Perhaps I'm just a little less sensitive because all of my info is public through the FAA (thanks FAA!), and the government in general (thanks OPM!).

 

For the record, you only need to just visit the page without logging in:

Jorge Moya, member of the PMDG beta team and he made the VC 360.
