Um…this is a 757 rework thread, the 809 people who have voted want it for a reason.
I will agree that the 757 is flyable, but that’s only because every plane in IF is flyable. What we all are saying is the A330 has already had a soft rework, so it’s basically at the level of the 787, Q400, etc. so what if the cockpit view is zoomed in, at least the displays are basically the same as the RL plane. So what if there are only RR engines, at least it has wingflex and a realistic wing frame. So what if it’s flying dynamics are off, it’s been praised for its smooth landings while the 757 can barely taxi, can do 10,000fpm on climb, and cruises with its nose down. The A330 is already a popular aircraft in IF, which attests to its (at the very least) acceptable level of quality. Meanwhile, nobody flies the 757 because of how outdated it is.
For any more posts that talk about other planes needing a rework on this thread, I’ll just quote this:
The 757 is the aircraft in most need of a rework that has the most substantial demand for one. Sure, the P-38 or Spitfire are desperately crying out for a rework, but guess what: they both barely have any votes. The 747 needs a rework, but guess what: it has 500 less votes than this. Sure, ok, the 737 could use a touch up, but, again, with wingflex, a diverse livery selection, scimitar winglets, and new camera views, it’s basically at the same level as the 787. Same goes for the A330, Q400, etc. I’ll say it again: the 757 is the aircraft in IF that needs the most love and has the most love from the community.
Based on vote numbers and the momentum this thread has gained, of course.
