FlightFactor Tweets New 777v2 Update

October 9, 2021

FlightFactor has taken to their social media pages and has teased more of their upcoming Boeing 777v2 aircraft after about half a month of tight-lipped silence from FlightFactor since FSExpo back in late September. The screenshots that FlightFactor posted showcases the 3D cockpit during the day and night.

The 777 is a wide-body aircraft manufactured and sold by Boeing, being one of the most sold wide-body aircraft. The original 777 is FlightFactor’s first product, released for X-Plane 9 (around the introduction of X-Plane 10). The subsequent reauthoring of the add-on for X-Plane 11 leaves much to be desired for the decade-old plane, which the team finally got around to producing an entirely new successor add-on. The lead developer, Roman Berezin (Ramzzess), has recently acquired type-rated for the 777 and officially mentioned a brand new 777 product in August of this year. 

Before the official announcement of 777v2, there was rampant speculation and discussion around the redevelopment for a new 777 simulation. Though FlightFactor has informally expressed interest in developing a v2, no concrete information was shared from the development team until recently; these teasers are subject to change as much of the plane is still a work in progress.

Needless to say, the aircraft appears to remain in early development; FlightFactor has not specified any release date for the new version nor a set price point, though the screenshots and the numerous snippets of the cockpit display suggests that full steam is ahead for the project.

Threshold encourages informed discussion and debate - though this can only happen if all commenters remain civil when voicing their opinions.
