FlightFactor Announces Boeing 787 Dreamliner for X-Plane 11
September 14, 2020
FlightFactor has announced a rendition of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner for X-Plane 11, which is said to be at a new level of complexity compared to their existing offerings.
They originally hinted at this aircraft one month ago, but today sees the Boeing 787 officially announced in an early stage of development.
Posted to the x-plane.org forum, lead developer ramzzess opened up his post by admitting 2020 has not been pleasant for the team, but wanted to look towards a more positive future.
He also reiterated last month’s push for a new level of immersion.
“Let's be honest, 2020 has not been good so far. Let's try to make 2021 better starting with this plan from our team.
“Looking forward along the lines of my previous post we, the team at FlightFactor, are happy to announce the first in a series of models of the next generation of FlightFactor Pro series.
“As said before, the Pro series will expand horizontally to give the user more experiences in and around the flight.
“More details will be published soon, but suffices to say, the FF Boeing 787 will conquer new heights in complexity, usability and variety of features.
“We are also taking our 3d and texturing to the next level with ever more detail in and out of the cockpit.”
He added their version 2 plans are still very much in the works, likely referring to the Airbus A350 and Boeing 777 the team released long ago, but is not willing to reveal everything in one go.
Here are all of the renders of the Boeing 787 cockpit in development by FlightFactor:
In other recent FlightFactor news, their A320 Ultimate was updated last week to fully support Vulkan.
