Stephen Posted October 25, 2014 Report Share Posted October 25, 2014 Boeing 777 Worldliner Pro + Extended Pack V1.7 by Flightfactor-VMAX FlightFactor-VMAX has updated the Boeing 777 Worldliner in Professional and Extended packs to X-Plane 10.30. After game-changing J Rollon CRJ-200 Regional Airliner the next significant step in X-Plane was the FlightFactor Boeing 777 Worldliner series. The aircraft pushed X-Plane forward into the realm that gave the simulator the credibility it deserved in that that this was a world class simulation aircraft. Amazingly it is now over two years from that original release and here we are with another version update in 1.7 In many ways the aircraft has matured into a real quality aircraft, not that it was average on release, but very far from that. But there is a clean and almost perfect operation of how you fly this machine in your simulation flying now, everything is almost perfect, with very few bugs or distractions. The quality of the Boeing 777 is outstanding and the aircraft has a real presence and after many hours of flying this most popular of airline almost homely familiarity. FlightFactor have also been in keeping the aircraft constantly fresh by delivering clever new options. And on the v1.7 in the Extended Pack you now also get the Rolls-Royce Trent 892-17 engine option on the B777-200ER. The RR developed RB211 engine option can be selected on the menu panel, It is noted as well on the FMC readout... When the RR is selected there are EICAS differences for the three-spool Rolls-Royce Trent seen on the Engine display. The Trent 800 family powers the Boeing 777. It is available on the 777-200, 777-200ER and 777-300 variants, with thrust ratings spanning 75,000 to 93,400 lbf (334 to 415 kN). The engine is the lightest in its class; a Trent-powered Boeing 777 weighs up to 3.6 tonnes less than General Electric and Pratt & Whitney-powered versions. In 1990 Boeing abandoned its planned 767X and instead decided to launch a new, larger aircraft family designated 777 with a thrust requirement of 80,000 lbf (360 kN) or more. The Trent 700's 2.47 m (97 in) diameter fan would not be big enough to meet this requirement, so Rolls proposed a new version with a 2.80 m (110 in) fan diameter, designated Trent 800. Trent 800 General characteristics Type: Three-shaft high bypass ratio (6.2–5.7) turbofan engine Length: 4.37 m (172 in) Diameter: 2.79 m (110 in) Dry weight: 16,500 pounds Components Compressor: Eight-stage IP compressor, six-stage HP compressor Combustors: Single annular combustor with 24 fuel injectors Turbine: Single-stage HP turbine, single-stage IP turbine, five-stage LP turbine Performance Maximum thrust: 93,400 lbf (415 kN) It sounds great on the wing of the FF B777 version as well with a completely new sound set for the Rolls-Royce Trent variant. It looks very good as well, nobody has created great or better turning fan blades than FlightFactor, and here they look really good. The B777 cockpit is still one of the very best in X-Plane, beautifully reproduced it is quite perfect. But only one request, in that could the Co-Pilot's NAV/MAP display and FMC be switched like on the B757 separately from the Pilot's? and have access to to the aircraft from the right hand seat. Internal night-lighting in the cockpit and instrumentation is first rate and in any flying mode you cannot but be awed when doing low pass turns. Other 1.7 (version 10.30) changes include both the Pro and Extended packages are: -NEW NAVDATA FOLDER in X-Plane 10.30: The 777 will now load navdata from the Custom Data/ folder of X-Plane. So by installing the navdata update for X-Plane, you automatically have the latest data in the 777 also-optimized the FPS in general-optimized CPU usage on low end machines taking advantage of 10.30 rendering features-improved taxiing simulation with higher tire grip-corrected 25KHz spacing on the COM radios-fixed a bug in loading direct-to legs from from .flp file-fixed a bug on Windows that would not let you load .flp files from the ROUTE REQUEST page-display approach glide path angle on LEGS page-improved depiction holdings in lieu of a procedure turn-fixed a bug in distance indication on the FIX page-added vertical bearing and FPA indication to the VNAV DES page-fixed a bug in choosing too low a cruise speed on the last leg to the T/D-corrected waypoint selectable for approach intercept, based on selected transition So the separate packages now include: Boeing 777-200 LR - (Boeing Worldliner Professional) Boeing 777-200 ER - (Extended Pack) With Pratt&Whitney PW4090 and Trent 892-17 engine options Boeing 777-200 F - (Extended Pack) Boeing 777-300 ER - (Extended Pack) This is another great timely update to what now is a classic aircraft in X-Plane, It was always very good and now it is just really very good. The 1.7 update is now available from the X-Plane.Org Store here : Price is US$59.95 - Boeing 777 Worldliner Professional Price is US$84.95 - Boeing 777 Worldliner Professional - Extended Pack - Designed by FlightFactor (Philipp and Ramzzess) and produced by VMAX The 1.7 update is free to all users that have purchased the Boeing 777 (Pro and Ext) Series.
