Boeing 787 Family rework

Consider something other than yourself for once, people.
People still fly the 717

I would like to see the A340 And A330 Rework 🤷🏼‍♂️

Do you think that the 787 (all variants) will be equipped with live instruments this year?

Hope so, I may hope the 737 before but the 787’s cockpit is amazing

I saw somewhere where it was mentioned that the live cockpit capabilities were coded in and that all’s that is needed idle for it to be activated. Sounds simple but it may be complex given the amount of detail applied in the latest additions. Hopefully we can see them in the future.

That’s right but that’s for the Airbus variant, Boeing have a different type and the cockpit need to be modelled good for a nice quality cockpit.

Most likely just for the Airbus. Either way, a 787 live cockpit would be 😍

I feel Boeing Aircrafts need their own skin on the flight displays so it looks like the same cockpit.

Also read that it’s only applicable to certain aircraft, which may not be the 787.

One of the liveries we need.

I think they should do what they did to the TBM in 19.4 by adding live instruments plus gear tilt.

@TRDubh YESSS. Exactly. Like a soft rework.

Also, they could add some liveries (For instance, the American 787-8 would be nice).

Perhaps features like gear tilt and the correct engine variants would take a little more than a soft rework to add so…maybe not feasible.

This works to some aircraft like the A320, 787 etc. But not most others, since they don’t live up to Infinite Flight’s current standards, and would need a full rework. Hopefully the 787 does get updated some day so we do have some variation other than the A350! 😀

We need a rework, given that the 787 has static instruments AND despite that so many people still fly it, reworking the 787 will satisfy the majority of players. It’s a great aircraft that will be made even better when a rework comes.

👍🤩 That’s why I made the post! Thank you for your opinion.

Yes, sadly this thread isn’t receiving as much attention as it should…I want a reworked 787 pretty badly, it would complement the 777 and the widebody fleet in IF.

It seems to me that some people are jumping to conclusions extremely fast. They did not state that the 787 would require a new 3D model, they said that in general, a new 3D model is needed for gear tilt. But it’s unclear whether this applies to the 787 given how modern it is, the 787 is a lot closer to the A350 than the 747 in terms of quality, and the developers seemed to be talking about much older aircraft, such as the A330 that was literally mentioned in the next sentence. So, maybe it would, maybe it wouldn’t, but they did not shut down the idea of gear tilt for the 787. Live Instruments for the 787 would essentially be the equivalent of the A320 soft rework, similar avionics systems to the 777 but an entirely different interface. The only other thing is to add some tweaks to the model, as in make the nose gear actually touch ground and that sort.

A soft rework would do the fix for the Dreamliner. Honestly, there are unflyable models(757, A340, E-Jets, A380) etc that need more TLC. I’ll still watch this topic for any developments.

I think for the 787 to be up to current standards, more than a “soft” rework is required but not to the extent of a full rework, likely somewhere in between. Features required for the 787 to be up to stanards can include: engine variants+fanblades that spin clockwise, gear tilt physics and working instruments. I believe the main 3D model is accurate enough to be up to today’s standards. It is not to say that these three main aspects can simply be added with a soft rework. However, because it’s not a severely updated aircraft, a full rework isn’t necessary either, and if all these features are implemented then this will bring the 787 up to standards, and given how many players still fly the 787 regularly on a day to day basis despite being an outdated aircraft when compared to its contemporaries, consequently satisfy the silent majority of widebody fans; Boeing widebody fans in particular within the IF community. Like the A350, the 787 is an outstanding, phenomenal aircraft. Its fuel efficiency and operating economics are simply unmatched, proven by the popularity of the aircraft type. A “medium” rework will bring the 787 up to date with today’s standards, and asides from the 777, players will have more realistic options to choose from when flying their short or long haul flights.
