After months of teasing and render previews, FlightFactor has finally taken to their Twitter page to share a proper set of previews showcasing the overall flight deck of the highly-anticipated Boeing 777 v2 for X-Plane 11.
In today’s set of previews, the developers have focused on showcasing the cockpit as a whole during the nighttime as well as showcasing certain parts in detail. The parts showcased in detail are the overhead panel controls, the center pedestal console, and the MCP panel located just above the instruments.
It seems like the developers have made decent progress with the aircraft. The systems are already implemented in the aircraft, however, it’s clear the work on them is not complete just yet. There are still a lot of things visible in the previews that are missing. Including aligned IRS, or displayed values on the MCP panel.
On the other hand, the pneumatic systems look to be already done and implemented in the aircraft. It’s hard to come to any conclusions based only on the previews that were shared.
It’s however pretty clear that the developers are really aiming to bring a whole new experience to the simulator. And while we can’t confirm yet that this will apply to the systems and flight model as well, the visuals look really nice. Especially when comparing them to the soon-to-be legacy 777 v1 or other older aircraft addons from FlightFactor.
Unfortunately, no information was given on the expected release date and pricing details. Keep tuned at FSNews for future updates as we look forward to what will the future bring.
