Captains,
The upcoming 757 Freighter Expansion will include the -200PF, -200PCF and -200SF variants.

What cargo management features would you like to see?

This has already been brought up in another thread, but I wanted to post it here again:

Some freighter 757s have glass cockpits/avionics installed. It would make a nice addition to the upcoming 757 freighter (and surely to the existing 757 options... Cheesy). It would be amazing if it was a free update Wink

Completely agree...that would be awesome to have the glass cockpit and avionics.

I like the newer cargo loader. The type that is used in the L-1011 Freighter and the 777 Freighter. At least you don't need to change the ULD weights in the ACE, you just changer it in the cargo loader panel.

Since most of the cargo birds are outside of the terminal, can we get maybe a ground power unit next to the aircraft as an option to see on the ground? I think will be cool, just my recommendation. Thanks.

I think the loader is not necesary, as long as it works along side with GSX(i mean, developed to work with it) and you have easy options to work with through the FMC/ACE.

I would spend those bites using other animations like:

- Water comming out from....
- Servicing vehicles....
- Internal realistic lighting(seen from outside)
- Definitely nicely detailed stairs(working stairs), cones and chocks as normal, may be id add some other crazy surprises to it...  Wink
- Inspection Paltforms like this.  May be for the wings? or APU?   Nice addition for ground statiorany periods.
- Maintenance personnel working on Engines or tires, or looking at the cargo load... may be animated...
- Animated personnel around(Not the pilots, cause GSX is going to add moving pilots entering to the cabin)...

Cheesy

Happy Flying Cool

Do GSX loaders update the aircraft's weight while they handle the cargo?
They are just an animation, aren't they?

I know the FSLabs and GSX have some dynamic features, like fuel and passengers, but not sure about specifically cargo aircraft.

Could you model a GPU when you select ground power in the external view?

Also would love windscreen rain effects

Just animation, its only on the FSlabs where they effect the weights during boarding/deboarding.

All CS loaders effect the weights realtime, that's the main reason we make them.

...the ammount of loaded cargo effect GSX`s animation, ex if the plane have only a light wight, then there is only a short loading animation, with less cargo containers coming with the carriers.

And that is the point. GSX is *ONLY an animation of placing the amount of cargo in the aircraft, it does not actually make any changes to the cargo in the flight sim program (Fuel and Payload > Payload), whereas the CS Cargo Loader does.

* Except for at least FSLabs it seems.

Are you sure? GSX *does* change the weight, at least during unloading.
Once empty it removes all payload weight from your aircraft.
