QW787 and QW757 coming for P3Dv4

Recommended Posts

Hey all, just thought I'd share this here, in case anybody didn't see it but is interested:

It appears the QualityWings 787 and 757 are on their way to P3Dv4! At least the 787 will include Trueglass, and here's hoping the same will be true for the 757. It being an older release, I'm not sure how much work went into that one, but I can only hope that QW took the trouble to do a proper port of it, like they seem to have done for the 787. I personally had never imagined their 757 making it this far, but I'm excited! This news comes right as I was starting to consider getting the CS757, but was holding off to wait for v1.1 and as there currently is no cargo model available yet. Of course, for those that are familiar with QW, this news may not mean we can expect anything particularly soon, so I'm not holding my breath, but I thought it was a nice surprise on this otherwise dreary New York morning :cool:

Based on their 787 lengthy development time and their Facebook statement that their 757 is on beta testing for P3D4, it's most likely it's only a straight port of the FSX model.

Am I misreading this statement then: "The work for Service Pack 1 is largely complete and we’re currently testing all changes / bugfixes along with the P3Dv4 version of the plane. We’re pursuing a simultaneous release of SP1 for FSX and the P3Dv4 version so that both variants are on the same status."

Based on that, sounds like the P3Dv4 version is not to far off.

 

Edit:  Sorry, think you were talking about the 757 release.

Yes, the 757 is a straight port as they have announced somewhere. The 787 is a conversion but more elaborated.

I don't know what's the idea behind developing something for a dead simulator then converting it to the most current one. Makes me think it won't be as good as if it were developed directly for P3D V4. Eaglesoft is using the same odd development method unfortunately.

Quality Wings Support Comment:

My experience with their support is that it is excellent. I had a problem with one of their creations some years ago and they went "above and beyond" in their efforts to help me. Honestly, I was blown away. Finally met these guys at FlightSimCon 2017. 

My support experience with them is such that I will purchase without reservation anything they produce along my interest lines...which includes both the 757 & 787.

For the record I have not ever been associated with them in any way.

High praise indeed.

Sounds like they have real integrity. I am interested in their products for P3Dv4 as I am looking for a modern airliner.

Hope it is soon.

Kind regards,

It's April here at my home town but it's ok, I take the bait for now and wait for it.

Cheers!

Might be due to the fact that the aircraft has been in development for 5 years or so. P3D v4 probably got announced when they were far into development for FSX so they could later on easily port it to P3D 32-bit.

But FSX to P3D v4 is a whole other story so they might not have wanted to delay the product yet again, just to only release it on P3D v4.

Their business strategy seems logical to me.

That's a bit of a bummer... Perhaps I'll end up going for the CS757 then.

Though I'm looking into the 787 now. It sounds like this is more than 'lite', and people seem generally very pleased with it.

Hopefully an upgrade charge or free for existing users. Hate the whole  new charge for p3d4 stuff but i know its all new software sometimes for 64bit conversion

It's definitely not lite, but not PMDG level either.  Probably more like the Aerosoft Airbus.  Just enough to keep you busy and engaged.  I own it for FSX, but it's been collecting dust since I don't use that platform any longer.  Like everyone else, waiting for the P3D version.  When it's finally done, hopefully it will get some love from FS2CREW, but I know it depends on the SDK being released to Bryan.

Aerosoft Airbus is perfectly fine for me, so that's good! Been watching some Youtube videos and it seems like my kind of plane. It seems packed with intriguing features. Frankly, I'd probably be happier paying 70$ for the QW787 rather than paying 135$ for the PMDG 777, which, while undoubtedly great, is probably packed with features I'm never going to use anyway.

I know this thread is pretty old but I have been unable to find any up to date information on when the Quality Wings 757 might be coming to P3D v4.

Last I heard they were looking for beta testers for the 757 and BAE 146, which was back in January of this year and the 146 is now available for P3D v4, so I assume (hope) that the 757 might not be far off.

If anybody has any information at all on the QW 757 for P3D v4 I would greatly appreciate hearing about it, the QW 787 and 757 are two of my favorite aircraft and the only other option for a 757 in P3D v4 at the moment is the Captain Sim 757, which is just way too expensive on my retiree budget

according to their facebook, they are working on it, no release date set.  straight port of the fsx plane.

Thanks for the info. I didn't see anything on the facebook page, but perhaps it's because i'm not logged in, the fact is I don't even have a facebook account.. lol

At any rate, at least they are still planning to do it, which if true is great news. Now that they have the 787 and 146 done for P3D v4 perhaps they can concentrate on the 757.

It still puzzles me that they chose to do the 146 before the 757, maybe it was just more popular for them sales wise, but there aren't many 146 and Avro RJ jets flying for real airlines these days, and there are still hundreds of 757's in service worldwide. 

Thanks again.

If you’re still interested CS is currently selling the 757 for P3D at $25 dollars but it’s only good for 24 hours. I paid full price when it was released and it’s just under a third of that for the base package. I didn’t get the bargain but others will. I even bought the RR expansion pack and you guessed it: paid full price for that too. 

Personally, I think CS should offer previous owners a free -F when it’s released. I paid well over a hundred total for the base and one pack: now it’s going for only $50. I won’t get fooled again.

Yes! When I got CS's email I put it on my calendar and got it the moment the price dropped! I haven't taken it for a spin yet, but will do so soon. Now eagerly awaiting the freighter expansion!

After reading the CS 757 thread, the numerous bugs, and the dreadfully low fps more than a few people are getting, the sale price on the base package notwithstanding, I decided to pass on the CS 757.

I'll just wait patiently for the QW 757 to port over to P3D v4.x 

There are a multitude of reasons for doing that for my purposes, but I won't get in to those until the QW 757 for P3D v4 is released.

Happy holidays to all.

Ridiculous.  Absolutely NO ONE forced you to click on "Buy".

You weren't 'fooled'. You bought something at a certain time when you were willing to pay the price it was; it was subsequently put in a sale at a lower price. You could have waited for a sale if you wanted to, but you chose not to because you wanted it there and then. What you paid for, was having access to it for many months before anyone else who bought it in the sale had similar access. It was entirely your choice to do that, as it was the choice of others to wait and save money, but not be able to use it for many months.

Most people did this because it's common knowledge Captain Sim has sales from time to time, usually at Christmas and if you wait long enough, even the latest new shiny thing ends up in such sales; nobody forces Captain Sim to do this either, it's just their choice to indulge in a bit of seasonal conviviality and generate a bit of revenue in the process, and good luck to them for doing so and cheering people up a bit at this time of year.
