Once again, Ricardo Bolognini of Supercritical Simulations Group has posted some new preview images showcasing the upcoming V2 update for the Boeing 747-8 aircraft series. The screenshots highlight the centre panel and illustrate display resolution. According to Ricardo and in regard to resolution.
About resolution. The actual resolution was decided by the team after many tests, the resolution of the displays, the fonts is all designed by the SSG team. The true type fonts was designed by Kostas under real B748 pilots advising.
We decided for this max size a medium 3 years old good gaming computer with 2GB video card could run it at the minimum 20 fps. in a moderate resolution. So 4k cockpit panel was the first to be eliminated because it was much heavier. We don’t want to make a plane to a very small part of the XP community that is already not for all.Then this images bellow was taken from my computer in a normal way in XP. Myself I am happy that can have my 2K monitor filled by a PFD and ND without a popup up for example. True a/c displays is 15″ with a res of 800px. our is 640px.
No thorough description was provided for the centre pedestal other than it is still WIP. Anyway, check out the images below.

You may recall, we also posted some nighttime panel lighting images earlier this week.
