He guys, why isn't the boeing 737-800 added in msfs 2020. Is there someone who knows if the plane will be added in the future? I've pre orderd msfs 2020 premium

greetings

peter

The same reason there is not a default A320 in x-plane ..

 

ToLiss paid them off!!!!

 

Nah.. i just think they figured the a320 satisfied the need for that class of aircraft. Making even default planes is tough (read uses resources)

 

i would be so surprised if no budget 737-800 comes out..

False.  You can, indeed load a pmdg aircraft in fully running state directly on the active runway, kick the tires, light the fires, and fly it around like a big Cessna all afternoon long.  And there’s not a thing that anyone on avsim can do to stop you.  Now, why you would pay 140 dollars to do that is a different question, but all those realism modes and failures and flight management computers can be ignored or bypassed.  When I first got their stuff, 8-10 years ago, I used to fly that way all the time.

Not completely true 😉 . PMDG 737NG isn't able to follow the default built-in GPS and flight planner, so with PMDG user can't perform easy navigation, as with default 737-800 can.

But you can't use the navigations system like you use it in the default aircraft. You have to know how to program the FMC in order to find your destination.

And the original poster specifically included navigation in his question.

Adding a flight plan in the FMC of the PMDG 737NGX is not a massive problem. You don't have to do everything "by the book", which means that you can pick and choose waypoints at will and fly direct to them, at whatever altitude you like.

If the A320NEO gets the treatment like the Zibo 737 in X-Plane and gets taken up as far as study level.  Then PMDG will be forced to reduce their extortionate prices, so that could be beneficial to all.

Ole'Randazo could not enter X-Plane he would have been laughed at.

I know we all would like to see the 737 in 2020 me included, I am a cargo version fan; but I hope there will be a price drop due to the larger market share provided by 2020

If you love flying and flight simulation, it is silly to miss out on this just because it (currently) lacks a 737. 🙂

I want a 737 as well, but there is so much more to MSFS, and I am sure a simplified (non-study level) 737 will come!  👍

I actually think a lot of developers should consider doing a simplified version of their study level aircraft and charging less, just like with the upcoming MB339.

Both 'jump in and fly' and study level markets are there, and for people who get real taste for accuracy after an easy start, an upgrade path would be great.

That's an AI repaint for P3D/FSX not MSFS.

FSX ported planes are currently broken on the newest patch if they they have clickable features in the cockpit.
