QualityWings 737CL officially cancelled

Recommended Posts

Greetings all,

 

Just saw their announcement on Facebook.

Truly sad - but, in my opinion, not entirely unexpected.
I couldn't find any post/thread about this, so I thought I'd make one here...

Apologies to everyone, if this topic is posted in the wrong forum. MODS: Feel free to move it, if necessary.

Dough ...

Understandable from their point of view; a pity, but thank you for the heads-up anyway.

Best Regards

Bummer.
I was looking forward having the classics in P3D. I like the NG but the Classic is for me much more fun to fly.

Indeed - me too... But given that the project officially has been 'on hold' for the past 4-5 year - it's not entirely unexpected.

By this time most airlines have retired the 146 and they never released a cargo version too bad.

Still, it was an interesting AC to fly back in the FSX days - the AP concept was very different from how to handle a Boeing, for example.

But now, I wish QW would focus on bringing the 787 to P3Dv4 and next revive and promote their 757 to higher levels of detail and bring it to v4 too. I love that 757 design and I miss it very, very much in P3Dv4.

Regards
Frank

For me, there are enough 737's on the market.

If it means they get the 146's into the air in Prepar3d V4, then that's a good thing.

I really do miss the QW757 in P3DV4. I need a realistic medium/short haul cargo aircraft. Now we have SDF, but no 757.

What about the MilViz version? It's not good?

MilViz produced a -200, not a classic (-300 -400 -500).

I see.  Obviously I am not a 737 aficionado :laugh:

The IXEG 737-300 is excellent for X-Plane 10/11 

Something you won't get in FSX/P3D

Yeah, wrong simulator. It's not that the simulator isn't good or anything like that, it's just not the one on topic.

Agreed.
But, simulator hopping is nothing I would have the time for.
I kept P3Dv3 on my HDD just to get the QW757 into the air from time to time - but I did not find this time and have been using v4 exclusively since its' release ...

I also have P4D and X-Plane 10 and 11 on my machine. To me, the Flightsim software you use is merely a platform on which to host the aircraft you wish to fly.

Sure, to each his own. But it is not only the usage; it's the setup, the tweaking, the installation of new add-ons, the maintenance in general ... if I want to spend a reasonable amount of time with my family I need to cut down on other things; in this case the usage of P3Dv3. But that's fine with me.

Cheers

Not entirely unexpected, but a shame nonetheless, since there is only really the Wilco Classic 737 done to any level of realism, and whilst it was good at the time, it's not really up to contemporary simulation standards. I know they're gradually being phased out, but there are even some original 200s still in service, there certainly are still quite a lot of Classic 300 and 400s knocking about, if I recall correctly, I think Jet2 still have a fair few 300s operational.

A major disappointment for sure but not unexpected. I hope a classic 737 does show up in the future hopefully sooner than later but I am not banking on it.

I don't mind them cancelling given the explanation, but it seems that they were borderline on "stringing us along" for many years (or however long they realistically knew the 737 would ever see the light of day).  In retrospect, I guess the fact that they never really communicated much at all on the project other than to say it was going to be done after the 787 would constitute an acknowledgement that the 737 wasn't a sure thing.

But still...I know there were a lot of simmers who coulda' cared less about the 787, other than that its release meant (or it was implied) that the 737 they were waiting for was finally in the hopper.  Sure, we're all completely aware that support for the FSX 787 was going to be foremost until it was stable, then the P3dV4 version, but the "big" project standing in the way of the Baby Boeing was at least behind them.

Reading the announcement, its hinted that another dev may pick it up...but I hold out no hope based on current events.

I wish QW luck in their "big" project, and I too am waiting for it's P3dv4 incarnation....but I won't even get interested in following its progress until several months after the beta announcement, which I don't think will be until 2019 sometime. 
So those who are actually hopeful that they'll see an update to the 146 and 757 before a few years from now are going down that same road they've been on for....for years.  Just pretend its never going to happen, and like Corey said "You may end up being pleasantly surprised, but that way you will never be disappointed."  I bet the simmers waiting for the 737 wished he mentioned that years ago when they showed all those fantastic screenshots of the project.:blink:

Canadian North operates 737-400’s and I think 300 combis if I’m not mistaken. As well as a couple 200’s!

146 does not work in P3D 3.4, QW made transition only to P3D 2.

I am still waiting to grab again my little jumbo ...

Hey Lenny,

I wouldn't count that chicken just yet.  The quote from Corey is "upcoming upgrades to the 146."  We can assume that would be the logical assumption (upgrade to P3Dv4)...but based on how incredibly awesome those 737 teaser shots were and then news about the cancellation, I'm not planning on getting excited about another QW announcement until I'm flying it on my PC.  Just saying.
