suggestions for more immersive experience

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi all,

I have also purchased PACX and I am aware that it is still an early access product. So far, I can't say it makes any significant immersive experience, because the only thing that seems to matter is whether the flight is on time, or delayed. There are much more factors than that in real life. I guess some of my suggestions are maybe already in the pipeline, in such case I would like to get a confirmation from the developers, otherwise I would also like their opinion about these:

  • Announcements. When we select to do an action like inform the passengers about a delay, or ask the cabin crew about boarding status, there should be an audible message. Currently there is nothing heard in the cabin.
  • Announcements. There should more announcements. For example before landing, after landing to welcome them to the new destination, etc.
  • Flight behavior. So far I dont think passengers respond to how we fly the aircraft. If after takeoff we climb with an extreme pitch up or the landing was too rough, or if there are maneuves or dives, the passengers don't seem to care. 
  • Taxi behavior. Same for taxi there should be some limits on how fast we can taxi or make turns or brake. Things that can worry passengers.
  • Meal service. It would be nice to be able to plan the meal service timing.
  • Cabin Temperature. It would be nice that passengers react to cabin temperature. I know that's maybe not possible for all add-ons, but for sure the advanced airliners available on the market have cabin temperature control that depends on outside temperature and bleed air selection. As PACX is about caring for your passengers, cabin temperature can't be left out, as its a very important parameter.

I would like to know the developer's view on these points.

I agree with this . 100 percent. I feel the announcements are not heard as much. Like only one I hear is when the aircraft departs and climbs to cruise. Apart from my custom safety briefing I use it’s a great product. I’d like to see more of the above implemented, especially meal service and cabin temperature.

We will be expanding the depth of the announcements as the product matures. That said, I agree with the extreme flying, extreme taxi, and cabin temperature. I have those all on the list. The cabin temperature is likely something that will be specific to select third party aircraft (much like the in-cockpit integration).

Thank you so much @turbofandude for your reply. I really appreciate that you have these three on your list, especially the cabin temperature for specific third party aircraft will be something very immersive to have, and for sure will bring much more PACX customers as it's a new level of immersion never seen before. Same goes for the whole PACX philosophy. I know it can take some time but as a customer is satisfying to know that the developer is making bold moves to bring immersion to new levels and I'm proud to have invested in the early access version. Thank you very much.

@Ifikratis The support and your sentiment definitely mean a lot to us. That was the goal of early access - we will create a product with the community, for the community. It shouldn't be too long before we see some of these features implemented.
