Wow.  I never thought in a million years that project would finish.  I'm a little less bummed about them not porting over the 767 now but hopefully at least one of the companies who made one will do so.

My favorite aircraft of all time, nice to hear it. Wonder how deep the system will be. Hopefully we can have more information later.

Cheers,

If the systems are there - I can live with outdated graphics...

Possibly, but hey... it is the 757. For me it is not an airliner to die for (per se).

Let us wait and see... or see nothing at all and just keep waiting.

I agree about the systems, but cannot live with outdated graphics!  Hopefully it has a beautiful VC.

The screen render from the VC looks like the old 767 with non-functioning FMC's in the VC. I dearly hope they are going with today's standards for top level stuff and not finishing off work that is 8 to 10 years old but has been sitting unfinished.

I do wonder since it's been in development so long if the visual assets were mostly finished years ago and now look dated.

That would be a joke.

And I have to add the questions...will this be for 64 bit P3D v4, or just FSX/P3D v1-3.  With all major platforms now available on some level in 64 bit, I can't imagine P3D v1-3 being terribly prominent 12-18 months from now once most add-ons our available for v4.

Indeed - would be very weird.
Perhaps they supply 2D panels?

I only worry about graphics...

Me as well..,they look very dated.  It will kill my immersion.  Hopefully the vc will be better than that pic.

I digress... I do hope, that the product is better than the screenshot posted in here.

Do you have a price estimate?
At least, Flight1 have a return policy if you don't like it...

I've heard of Christmas in July, but could there be an April Fools in June?

If released this would be the ultimate sim come-back of all time!  If memory serves me correctly (which in my case is not really a safe bet), the Level-D 767 set the bar before anyone else had produced a study sim of such detail.  Not even PMDG's original 747 was up to their, uh, level.  I had long ago lost hope that the 757 would see the light of day so this is a surprise to say the least!

For everyone commenting on the quality of the screen shots, they look like someone's cell phone snap of a monitor so let's not judge the potential quality based on these until we get a better and closer look.

It's pretty easy to tell the quality of the VC from those photos....

You're absolutely right! But we don't really know if these pictures represent the final product?
