    17JUN14 - Scheduling and General Updates

    Dovetail is all about the DLC. The core game has not really changed much at all since 2010 and they are making no attempt to develop it in the direction of "Simulation" Its a game and I don't see that changing anytime soon. I suppose at the end of the day its much like FSX. Without 3rd parties (call it DLC if you must) it would be long forgotton. FSX has A2A PMDG and many other quality 3rd parties. Train "simulator" has Just Trains (advance series engines) and a "few" quality scenery addons, but the core game has not changed. I really don't expect much from Dovetail but i've been wrong before.

    Wind Data aka 777 style? ;)

    Topic says it all but are we likely to see the ability to import wind data from PFPX or active sky on the 737? Would be neat as i do more start/stop flying with the 737 than the longer flights of the 777.

    Difficult to slow her down during descent !

    PFPX will also help show you winds during decent stage also. a tailwind will make it harder to come down in time hehe. I have so far been unable to import the Activesky text into the PMDG WX file as I get "Invalid Entry" when I click the Wind Data Request button. (I saved the notepad file under the same name as the route with the .wx prefix but it does not work. So I enter them by hand =) EDIT, I just found out I had to type in the name of the file before the request lol. (In my case ENGMEGCC01) Live and learn.
  4. Thats true. Still I think the 777 is 4 times closer now than I thought! i was thinking they had only just finnished the NGX with its Service packs. To know they are far enough along that they actualy have something to show us is mindblowing! Even if its first months of 2013 it will still be sooner than I hoped! .
  5. sticking with FSX for a while yet. Alot of people dont see but its got some life left in it yet. Not untill you can run it at 60fps with a comlpex addon (like the NGX) and all the sliders maxed on a middle of the range PC. BTW PMDG just said the 777 is already in alpha and will be in beta in 1 or 2 months. So we have that to look forward too hehe.!

    Angle of Attack Training

    im still betting they will still have 737 vids to do when the 777 comes along in a few years. I got the captains package and they are very good videos but its going to take them along long time.

    PMDG 737NGX Livery Availability

    I cant wait to start work on my "Aperture Science" Livery =). Looking for some ideas on that though. Thinking of putting some of the Warning Symbols from the game and maybe some areas painted with the Blue gel (the bouncy stuff hehe) Im pretty new to painting so it might take ahwhile.

    PMDG 737NGX Livery Availability

    just got 2 DvDs though the post that I ordered from worldairroutes, both the Westjet 600 and 700 series and I decided to watch the first one (600s) and the first 7 mins of the video are RNP navigation in the full motion simulator!. That made me smile as I will be tackling this soon. Its no suprise that im looking forward to the 6700 pack so I can copy him exactly =) Happy there is a 800 so I can get started rightaway with the right livery. Im from England but Canada looks like the best place in the world for flying!!, so many mountains everywhere for me to avoid. the 2 vids total almost 6 hours! + the SAS737 video I already have. Might have to watch the whole lot back to back someday hehee,
