Finally, a 757 study level a/c.  This one should really attract a lot of sim pilots.  Thanks for finding and posting this news.

New pictures in the Level D forum. These look much much better than the original screens that have been posted in many places.

A 3D overhead - we're there, ladies and gentlemen!   I'll be buying this for sure.

I hope the graphics are up to par.  They look a little dated.  I have no idea now hard it would be to create more modern textures.  I noticed that they closed the thread over there with the stipulation that it's early beta.  Sounds like the wait will continue.  I imagine it will come, but it could easily be a year, especially if they want to update the graphics.  Compared to even the NGX or other slightly older add ons, this looks old.  Like FS9 old.  I hope that's not the case.

They look pretty modern to me. There is some t texturing that could be a bit better. I've offered my help if they need it. I am extremely excited about this plane.

Well, I'm not super picky, and I am excited as well.  But I do think the dull blurry texturing is a very old look, similar to FS9 aircraft.  The A2A Commanche, PMDG 747 and 737 and Majestic Dash 8 are all very modern looking.  I installed the MD-11 from PMDG when I rebuilt my sim from years away.  It was a favorite of mine, but after looking at the NGX it was like a drawing versus a picture.  I haven't reinstalled the MD-11 since my last reinstall.  It's just too dated.

I really hope this thing pans outs.  I wanted it since it was announced, but early beta is disconcerting and I'm worried is all.

I do understand what some mean, I for example love the Wilco EJets series. The issue that I have with them is that I do not like how dated and blurry the cockpit looks. I however do not think this will be the case with the Level D 757.

I can't believe I am just seeing this! It looks actually pretty good, still could be better of course.

Something tells me this is what Level-D had done before they stopped working on the 757 project...

If it does come through, I cant wait to get it! I am still using the PSS 757 in FSX, and its very painful with all the issues and terrible graphics so it will be nice for an upgrade.

I agree, I think these look great! And I really can't wait for it to come.

How do 757 fans rate the Captain Sim treatment?

I bought it on sale for half nothing some time ago, and I'm wondering if it's worth putting the effort into the learning it.

I own the 757. It's okay, their biggest mistake was leaving it behind in the interest of going to other things when it was not finished. Which seems to me as a huge economic failure. Those two planes 757-767 are two of the most popular in the US and other parts of the world. Why they decided to abandon the product instead of expanding it sooner to me seems idiotic. 

 

CS simply did not finish the FMC. Had they finished it and continued to improve it could have been award winning.

Interesting, thanks. What's missing from it?

Nothing is 'really' missing, but what is in place is unreliable such as T/D calculation, performance, etc.

YES!  Finally, and hopefully a study level 757!  Been thinking about purchasing the new Captain Sim 757 III, but I'll just wait for this one.  Level-D did not disappoint with their 767, I'm feeling the same way about this one too.  CAN'T WAIT!

I have been waiting on this for a while...

 

I think it's just a bit unfair to not give - after nearly one year (in a few days) - anything about the product; even if it's cancelled or anything of the sort.

 

Just be opened/transparent with people. If it is negative - the community WILL get over it at some point.

 

Regards,

P'Rez

Yup still waiting....Does anybody have the FlightFactor 757 for XPlane? If so does that even compare in quality in terms of study level?

Over a year ago this thread started yet nary a word. Vapor ware? Air ware? Nothing there ware?

Hard to say but instinct is vaporware...if they be smart they will abandon the 757 and recode their fabulous 767 for p3dv4.  IMHO.

June 2017 - "EARLY beta means EARLY." followed by a lock on the thread. How DARE the community ask for additional info after the developer makes an announcement of beta status... the nerve of those people upon whom their sales depend.

July 2018 - Total updates/communication, zero. At 10 years (that's being charitable) to reach 88% completion we could expect an update next year, likely in the form of another "it's coming, stop asking" post. 

IMO it's truly surprising that the crowd at FSCon didn't react with jeers at their "announcement". The 757 is now like the Iraqi a300's still on Airbus' order books from before Desert Storm.

Anyone who still believes in LevelD is wasting time, this is basically it, hurting or not. Captain Sim is the best bet, with their 757 being very reliable although the model isn't *quite* equal to a 757 silhouette.
