The goal of every version of FS2Crew is
With the PMDG 747 and FS2Crew combination,
Flight Simulator 2004 and FSX has never been so Real!
The PMDG 747
Edition of FS2Crew is a major release in the FS2Crew series. Shaped by
user feedback, new ideas and constantly evolving programming techniques, it represents the culmination of two years' worth of design experience in the FS environment.
The PMDG 747
Edition is essentially an add-on designed specially for the PMDG 747.
Basically it takes your PMDG 747, which is already a highly realistic
simulation, and makes it even better and more immersive by adding a host
of new features and functionality to the aircraft.
premise of the FS2Crew concept is that it is not realistic to fly airliners
the same way you fly a Cessna 152. Airline flying involves team flying, and
is not a single pilot affair. FS2Crew basically makes you fly just like a
real airline pilot.
voice set that will ship with FS2Crew 747 features the voice of a real-world
747 Captain for the Captain's role, and the voice of a chief pilot of a
corporate outfit for the FO's role.
you and your First Officer will perform your duties, flows, scans,
checklists, memory items, etc., and interact with the Cabin and Ground Crew
just as you would in real life. You will even interact with the Operations
staff and Engineering.
maximum realism, FS2Crew is working closely with an active 747-400 FO to
ensure that the procedures modeled mirror reality (in the context his
every version of FS2Crew, you'll even be required to handle new situations,
such as dealing with a sick passenger.
products are continually refined from one version to the next. Each version
is custom coded from scratch, and the PMDG 747 version is no different. It
is only through such customization at the basic code level that a truly
technically accurate simulation can be created. This is especially of
importance when dealing with aircraft like the PMDG 747, which is
essentially a simulation within a simulation itself and heavily custom coded itself and not accessible via standard FSUIPC offsets or the MS Panels and Gauges SDK.
comes with a custom, international Pushback/Start Crew so if you're flying in the UK, you'll hear a British Start Crew; if you're flying in Germany, you'll hear a German accented crew, etc.
with complex simulations, keeping the learning curve down to reasonable levels is always an issue. To that end, a totally new interface method has been designed for the PMDG 747 Edition that is very clean and simple to operate, and more visual than the interface method used in the ATR and 767 Editions.
version was significantly updated to include the latest FS2Crew innovations,
such as DirectX integration. Other improvements over the FS9 version were
also incorporated to make a totally new product.
