What does this update entail that I should be excited?

Maybe rain/bug splatter for the -400. I believe they originally aimed to get that out in November.

Hope there are more interesting items than bug splatter in the update.

Interestingly, when it comes to establishing facts, it is necessary to look at multiple sources - even with definitions:

Information - (n) knowledge that you get about someone or something

There's an issue with poor connections where, if the connection to Navigraph times out, it'll crash the sim. The update will fix this issue.

I tried it a few times, and being a realism addict I had to drop it. I've flown on the 772 and 773 many times, and the sounds and performance is just not the same. I don't care what people say in the forum.

As a pilot or passenger?   Unless you can tell me that you have PILOTED these airplanes in real life, I have to respectfully tell you that I don't think you are in the best position to judge accuracy - you do know that PMDG have real guys that actually pilot these aircraft to assist with the testing right?   I think that takes precedence over your armchair assessment of the accuracy of the aircraft.

I'm guessing he's talking in reference to using the 777-200LR on a route normally flown by a 777-200ER or 777-300 since he responded to somebody else who mentioned the missing -200ER. Don't think you need to be a pilot to know that the PW4084 and the Trent 895 sound nothing like the GE90.

Exactly! And not to forget performance difference as well.

He's not judging the accuracy of the aircraft but rueing the lack of options regarding the aircraft. And please can you tell me, how is flying a 777-200LR on a route on which the 777-200 or -200ER flies, any accurate?

it‘s the only airplane that constantly gives me ntdll-crashes after around 7-8 hours, mainly in eastern direction and I start to disbelieve that this is to be resolved by getting rid of other addons.

Marc,

I just checked my flight log for 2018. I flew approximately 500 hours (real time) in the PMDG B777 with 15 flight over 8 hours and 5 over 10 hours with the longest being 13.8 hours.  I haven't experienced any system crashes with the B777. 

I'm not sure what to tell you, wish I had an answer. 

Grace and Peace,
