    Default PMDG 777 or Captain Sim 777

    hey guys!

    I was wondering, now im using PSS 777 on my FS9, and i about to migrate to FSX. So far, i trust PMDG products ( i used the 747 and MD-11 in FS9, they damn good!). And lately, i heard PMDG is about to release 777, so did Captain Sim as a expansion to its 767 i think. My question is, should i wait for PMDG to release the 777, or should i get CaptainSim's 777?

    Thanks for your kind answers!

    First, please note that the models being developed by the two are not exactly identical. See below thread for some additional information.

    Typically, PMDG seems to have access to Boeing Company (insider) documentation and resources permitting them to simulate ultra-high levels of realism. That probably means a somewhat long wait time for the (full) release.

    While you are waiting, meanwhile, you can continue to track the CIP (Community Involvement Program) interim releases from CS-777 in their dedicated and active 777 forum to get a better idea of this CS product in evolution. I believe they are at Release 0.4 now with some interior features already available.

    it's not 100% realism, the PMDG is missing a few screens/mfd's in the vc, no EFB, no passenger cabin, no weather radar, etc. etc.

    If like me you prefer a more modern glass cockpit, the PMDG 777 that is announced for this week is better, since the Capt Sim 767 (which I have) has the old-style instruments.

    Quite simply, the CaptainSim 777 is the worst payware model I've ever had the misfortune of purchasing. The FMC functionality is quite pathetic, the aircraft rolls randomly in cruise, it seems the VNAV info doesn't talk to the rest of the displays, and the cockpit is therefore not a great place to spend time crossing county lines in let alone country boundaries an ocean.
