Performance at first

Performance is always our top priority. We are well-aware that our customers are looking for utmost realism and seek not to jeopardize performance along the way. As such, 737 Immersion has been tested thoroughly and the memory usage of our product is next to nothing. With regards to the frames-per-second (FPS), we have optimized 737 Immersion in order to provide a high quality FPS-friendly product.


Wing condensation

We are glad to provide 737 Immersion with new enhanced multi-stage wing condensation. Departures in humid air will now look stunning as the wings of the aircraft get filled with visible moisture! 737 Immersion offers three stages of wing condensation all based upon how much back pressure you apply on the elevator on that take off roll!


Engine condensation

We are glad to provide 737 Immersion with the latest version of our famous engine condensation effect! 737 Immersion provides a three-stage engine condensation which works according to the thrust applied on each engine independently. This effect is quite interesting to witness in real life and 737 Immersion allows virtual pilots to benefit from the real-world realism in their simulator.


Jet wash

737 Immersion offers an impressive jet wash effect under rain and snow conditions which truly shows the power behind the 737’s CFM56! The effect was thoroughly recreated using real-world images, videos, and data. Peek a look outside of the flight deck for a mind-blowing sight while the 27,000 pounds of thrust projects all the water away from the aircraft!


Contrails

737 Immersion comes bundle with our now renown set of contrails which provides impressive 3D contrails! Our contrails have been designed to provide for the most realistic environment around the aircraft. They add in to the extensive list of weather phenomena included with 737 Immersion which all together brings the aircraft to life!


Volumetric lighting

Volumetric lighting has taken a giant leap forward with 737 Immersion! It is now more realistic and more precise than ever. We guarantee that night landings to minima will never look so realistic seen from the flight deck! Taking our expertise from real-world experience, we have made great improvements to volumetric lighting offer with 737 Immersion.


+ many other effects

Touchdown effect, engine start-up smoke under cold conditions, new brake dust effect when retracting the landing gear, water vortex from the ground into the engine, and upon rotation, water vapour vortices under each wingtip. We got you covered on all angles!


New install process

Our new home-made control panel, VFXCentral, now renders the installation process much easier and enjoyable. It also allows to customize your installation of 737 Immersion along the way. Furthermore, updates will be provided through the control panel and will include all your FSFX Packages under one roof.

An active Internet connection capable of accessing North American servers is required to install VFXCentral and 737 Immersion.


The entire series

737 Immersion is available in one package for all four variants of the PMDG 737 : 737-600, -700, -800, and -900. Hence, you will be able to enjoy the benefits of owning 737 Immersion on all of these aircrafts with one price. The effects are tailored to fit each and single one of them with near-perfection.


Works for you

737 Immersion is compatible with all popular texture enhancement add-ons and weather engines available for Microsoft Flight Simulator X and Lockheed Martin Prepar3D.

We also made changes to the way we generate our effects. They are now compatible out of the box with FSX's DirectX 10 Preview mode without conversion needed.


Ready for capture

Our goal with this product is to extract the beauty of the weather interacting with the aircraft and bring those effects to flight simmers. While doing so, we optimized every effects to make the job easier for virtual photographs and video producers. Visual effects can be displayed in a slow motion environment without spreading apart like they usually do with default effects, making it ideal for today's Flight Sim recording techniques.

Limitations

Please read the following limitations and known bugs before buying the product.

  • Effects will not show if all engines are shutdown.

    The technique used to display effects around the aircraft depends on the airplane’s smoke system which does not work when all engines are off. This is a Simulator limitation.

  • Effects are not visible during instant replay.

    Flight Simulator X and Prepar3D’s replay system is very limited and does not allow the replay of advanced effects systems. A great solution in Flight Simulator X is to use FSRecorder with the smoke replay option turned off.
