Title: The 777. The past, the present, the future.
Post by Captain Sim on May 20th, 2021 at 8:31am
The past.
Please do not compare the 777 systems fidelity to our previous products.
The 777-III is meant to be different: great visuals+default systems and a flight model, all for a fraction of our regular airliner price.

The present.
The 777 systems is not a rework/mod of the 747 code. It is your current local 747 code as is plus an extra CS code which provides compatibility with CS 3D models. That's why you see some features of the 747 like 4 engines, 747 naming etc. Well, that's what the Essential functionality paired with default 747 systems simulation is all about.

The 747 mods compatibility.
Out of the box - no.
However, the 777 mods compatibility could be provided with the community aftermarket mods. A couple of them are already available.

The future.
We are not going to make any changes to the default 747 code and flight model. So systemwise the 777 is pretty much done.

What about a "study level" 777-IV?
We'll see. In any case the 777-III got nothing to do with that.

Thank you for the clarifications on where things stand.

Clarifications are made first, so one decides whether or not to spend 30 dollars.
On the ground it is not even possible to take him to the track, (he turns very little).
Once in flight, however, he manages to do stunts that only certain airplanes could do and certainly not a beast like this.
There are more keys that don't work than should work for a simulator.
What is an ECAM made like this for?
To make the audio work, you need to replace a folder in Sound.
In the CDU part many things don't work and I stop here because the list would be long, even virtual reality is hard to manage.
In short, for a paid airplane simulator I expect something else and at the moment I would prefer to be reimbursed since I seem to have understood that the situation

Right. That's why the Essential functionality paired with default 747 systems simulation tag is on the 777 page since the day one.
