Incorrect engine type on B77W/777-2LR/777F

Not sure what category this fit into, so I’ll leave it under general for now…

For a while I’ve had a suspicion that the engine on the current 777-300ER is too small, relative to its overall size. If we compare the engine found in game, to the one in real life, it matches the smaller GE90- 80/90 series, as opposed to the larger GE90-115B. Differences can be noted in the pylon shape, positioning relative to the wing, fan blade size, and overall greater size.

The current 777 we have is slightly outdated. I’m sure it will be reworked once the developers have the time to.

This community has hit a new level of pickiness 😂. In all seriousness, does this really affect anything?

I am sure there is somebody in FDS who runs the complaint department at this hour.

Picky sure…but if this game is all about realism as they say…doesn’t hurt to point out kinks in order to improve the situation.

Not sure where I was complaining… I just simply stated that the engine wasn’t correct, and was bringing attention to it.

I understand that, trust me, I’m really picky too (I read a friend’s book 4 times just to point out each little grammatical error and it was over 500 pages), but I think there are more useful things the devs can focus their attention on, such as global.

The engines specifically need to be redesigned because of this and that you can see right through the engine if you look from the back. Hopefully it’s done soon.

Well of course they have other, more important priorities, but I wasn’t demanding that it needed to be fixed asap…

Everybody, this isn’t a feature request, he is just pointing out a mistake.

In that case, then yes, I think it’s an issue that needs to be fixed, but not immediately, or one that should be of real concern to the devs.
Cheers!

You are correct about engine being wrong type on B77W. This issue also apply to B777-200LR and B777F as they also have same engine type as B77W. B777-200ER in IF has right engine type. My guess is that B777-200ER’s engine was copied and pasted on B77W, B777F and B777-200LR.

Good eye, I didn’t know that I was flying around with inferior engine on B77W. 👨‍✈️👍

They just released the C130 in their most recent update! Anyways, I suggest making a feature request of just a rework of the B77W… :)

I could, but then everyone will be breathing down my neck saying "oh it was re-worked not long ago, there are other more important things to be fixed/done such as … etc. etc. But I totally would, because it’s my favorite plane in the game, and when it gets fixed, plus wing flex, what a beauty she will be for global.

Go for it. Anyone who is being boringly negative will just have their comments deleted

It affects the realism lovers and I also agree - it has a little small engines

This issue has been discussed in the past too

777 still needs some rework, i.e like the emergency pathway, engine change, etc. Hopefully it can be fixed soon 😊
