Recommended Posts

The PMDG is stunning. We now have a sim. Its so dang smooth. Lighting is simply ridiculous. No Studders.

Just bought it. Gotta go to work and play with the real things unfortunately, but a quick look confirmed that it looks pretty good. Good price too, pretty close to my guess.

We just need AI Traffic fixed in the sim and it's back to Airliner flying like the older sims.😎  I almost wish AI was addressed first with real world traffic and liveries present at airports before the release of the high end airliners but it is what it is.  PMDG's choice to release the -700 along with the BBJ was great.  With the BBJ I can avoid those major airports and fly corporate until Asobo and some amazing third party developer fully addresses AI.  The AI options we have now don't quite cut it but again the BBJ option here fills the niche!💯

I would love to know what the sounds are like.  The engine sounds were a bit weak on the one YouTube video I watched, but they may have been reduced a bit by the reviewer.

Fabio was showing some sounds from both internal and external views yesterday, esp the apu and engines etc... be sure to listen on a good set of headphones or speakers with bass capabilities: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1479378039?t=03h39m20s

Also, a PMDG developer posted some sound examples in this thread here: https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/618517-pmdg-737-release-next-week/?do=findComment&comment=4768033

This is SO important! I was listening on the TV speakers first, but it is nothing compared the to headphone sound.

The flight model is the best thing I’ve ever flown in any sim including Xplane.

The sounds are prefect.  As your sitting in the cockpit you shouldn't hear the engines as if you were sitting in the cabin over the wings.

I’m glad to read this… it’s where the rubber meets the road… VERY FEW deliver in this arena.

Indeed... with properly flight-modelled aircraft like this PMDG 737, Milviz C310 and Maddog MD80, one begins to see the true potential of MSFS and its core flight-model/aerodynamics and the overall flight sim experience it provides.. something which is really just beginning to come into its own with future enhancements yet to come. Really looking forward to what the Fenix A320 also brings to the table!, and impatient for the long haulers like PMDG's 777/747 and FBW's A380 🙂

When you pan around to look out of the cockpit window, what is that increase in sound? I cannot tell what it is simulating engine, wind?

Wow, that's amazing.  When MSFS has planes with a better flight model than XPlane, that's progress for MSFS!

I'll say this, I somehow wasn't impressed with it when I watched all these previews and streams. Not until I fired it up on my box, on a 46" curved monitor, in Renton around early dusk time, then it hit me and I'm in love. They really did a good job with it!

The Milviz C310 is another good example of excellent FDs. For me, better than anything I flew vertually in XP11.
