737NGX updated features

Recommended Posts

Hi folks

I'm seeing a few posts requesting for the 737NGX to be updated. What needs to be updated? I know about the new LED lights but that's about it.

Split scimitar winglets? That's all I can think of. I don't actually own the 737NGX, so couldn't tell you otherwise.

Scimitar, LED lights (slightly blue hue to taxi/landing lights  / re-sequence flash), cabin mood interior lights on most new aircraft. But Scimitars change the performance quite a bit, so that would be the biggest update/addition to the NGX. Hopefully they will consider it, scimitars took over here in Houston!

Last time scimitars came up I thought it was put to bed by quite well.  That modification is not a Boeing modification and involves proprietary data that does not fall within the commercial agreement between PMDG and Boeing, and it is unlikely that the modification could be done in any but a cosmetic sense.

Fairly sure it is, given that the NGs are now delivered new with scimitars.

Doesn't mean the data is available though to PMDG.

They might be fitted on some new deliveries but they are under a STC. Our new deliveries don't have them, and quite a few older TUI aircraft seem to have them fitted this year.

1. Engine sounds that change with altitude, like in the new 744 and fsl a320.

2. A fix for the flight deck geometry

3. Custom engine spool model, again like in the new 744.  (Engines should be slow to respond at low n1, then become much more responsive above around 40% n1 on the cfm 56)

After all these years it is still the most complete and accurate short/medium range aircraft available for any sim platform, with these updates it really would be perfect.
