I got to it before it was taken down and just finished reading the entire thing. Not much new info in there but these were the bits I found interesting that were as of yet unconfirmed. A lot was just an overview of the options in the FMC, very similar to 737 options. Also a good bit of how the 777 FBW system works from the perspective of the pilot.

 

1. The default MSFS weather radar is included

2. Inibuilds A300-style brake wear/glowing brakes type features have been added

3. There are some options in the FMC about a custom steering system. Unclear if this is going to clear up the horrible ground handling present on the 737 or not.

4. Camera shake for ground roll, touchdown, turbulence, aerodynamic effects, etc. have been added. Possibly will obsolete FSRealistic usage entirely.

5. The EFB can be moved between 3 locations - the default position over built in tablet location, on the window, and over by the CDUs to help with data entry.

It took them that long to finally include stock WX radar which now is part of PMDG hype .
 

We have been beating this topic on PMDG forum  over a year while getting mysterious excuses lol

If people want to see what all the fuss is about just type in "pmdg 777 leaked manual" in google and there is an archive of the manual a few posts down in reddit.

Maybe they would add WXR to 737…

They thought it was a waste of time since it's hardly useful for proper weather evasion (and they were right about that IMO, I can't do anything useful with the MSFS WX radar in the planes that have it, e.g. the 787 or A300)

You’ve got that the wrong way round; it is useful for weather evasion. The problem is the weather doesn’t need to be evaded.

 I don’t think they thought it a waste of time, I think they were simply unaware until relatively recently that the sim could output precipitation data.

Hopefully this will now make it into the 737.

The lack of tilt / vertical scanning means I have to evade anytime a bad weather cell is (horizontally) in front of me, instead of seeing if I could outclimb or outdescent it. So yes, technically it's useful, but for aviation means it's not useful. You don't ask for vectors anytime a weather cell is *somewhere* in front of you, e.g. when you're flying above the tropopause and couldn't care less about weather beneath you.

I am hoping to see a bit more ambience with sounds - things like PA if the PA selector on etc.  PMDG aircraft are very "quiet" by comparison with others

Most importantly...hopefully they've sorted the FBW out.  It flew nicely in P3D before the 200ER came out, and every since its been terrible - very weird in pitch.  They never fixed that despite ruining what was a product that flew well.  I personally think they owe P3D customers at least a fix for the FBW as it sort "broke" it.
