Thread: Advice Please on 767 Purchase

  1. Default Advice Please on 767 Purchase

    Hello all:
    I am in the market for an extended range 767 cargo aircraft.

    It appears that the choices are:
    1. Level D 767
    2. Captain Sim 767

    I am looking for any advice you can provide.

    I know the Level D is/was a good product in the day, but it is almost 10 years old and I wonder if the graphics is up to date with today's standard. The Captain Sim product is newer but I have no idea on the quality of the graphics and systems modeling.

    I would be grateful for any input you would care to provide.
    Thanks in advance,
    Rick

    Er, the Captain Sim 767 was also released at least ten years ago - 2009 IIRC

    Both are dinosaurs, but my choice would be Level D. Class always wins through...

    I have the Level-D

    The only thing I hate about it is the VC cockpit overhead controls are NOT 3D and detract from an otherwise awesome model.

    Thanks Mallcott and Dogdish. I went ahead and purchased the Level-D as I had a deep discount since I owned the FS2004 version. I just don't think I can go back there after PMDG and other modern cockpits. So I'll take a look at CaptSim. I don't know any other sources, right?
    Thanks

    It depends really on your priorities. Simulation or prettiness. If simulation is your thing then Level D, prettiness then Level D. It is a shame that there are no more modern contenders. I look at how many 737's there are out there.

    Yes, I agree completely.. I looked at both of them and decided not for me. Next I'll look at PMDG T7.
    Thanks
