Our Friends over at the flight simulator add-on company Just Flight has been developing a high fidelity Boeing 747 “Classic“ for “many months” now. Today an email with a development progress report for various project was sent out.
Briefly, all visual modeling (interior, cockpit and exterior) is nearly complete with avionics and systems functionality coding now in full high gear.
The statement regarding the Boeing 747 “Classic” reads as below:
“After many months of work, the mammoth job of modelling, texturing and the animation of the 747 Classic is nearly complete. The exterior and cockpit models are now finished, with painstaking detail right down to accurately modelled cabins with staircases (see development screenshot above), and hundreds of custom animations have been added. We recently shared some new preview images of the extensive virtual cockpit which features wear and tear based on a real-world aircraft, and we were pleased to see all of the great feedback and excitement for this iconic aircraft!
Our coding team have been busy working on the huge array of avionics and systems functionality found onboard the aircraft, from the realistic exterior model animations to the engineerâ€™s panel, and we will be providing more updates on each of these areas in the coming months.
After receiving lots of feedback from the community, we are now working on additional variants to follow the 747 Classic, including the 747-300, VC-25 and E-4B. More news on those next time!”
