#517642 For those of you flying airliners in VATSIM using XP11 and XSB, which jet are you using and how reliable is the FMC? I've been using the zibo mod some, and as good as it is, it's just not there yet in terms of reliability and having all the features of the FMC/MCP working. What are others using and how reliable and fully functional has your experience been?

#517846 Have always used freeware airliners and X-Plane's default FMC. It had its problems (no airways, no terminal procedures, some missing fixes) but I could always fall back on VOR radials and direct to lat/lon fixes. I believe it's improved in X-Plane 11 but I haven't flown in a while so I don't know the details. Not much good if you care about As Real As It Gets, but it's Real Enough For Me.

#518134 Zibo is good, but make sure to update regularly. New releases and bugfixes nearly every day...
The ixeg 737-300 is very good, probably my favourite bird in X-Plane.
The Flight Factor 767 is extremely thorough, on a level if not better with the LevelD 767 for FSX.
JarDesigns A330 is also pretty good, though not as in depth.

I'm hearing very good things about the RotateSim MD80, but haven't used it so can't say anything about it except the pictures look great.
Ditto the Flight Factor 757 and JarDesigns A320.

Stay away from the Flight Factor 777, it needs major work before it has realistic performance.

#521369 There are quite a few. The zibo 737 is completely free, and perfectly flyable. The FF A320 when it comes out will be one of the best addons of any sim I am sure. The Flight Factor 757 and 767 are okay, but nothing special. Chock full of little issues that once combined really hurt the immersion. The IXEG 737 is one of my favorite for any sim, but the real 737 classic is not used much anymore, so good luck finding routes. My favorites have to be the Rotate MD88, Flyjsim 727, and 732. But again, good luck finding real world routes for those, since I assume that's what most people like. I would recommend not touching the FF 777, or anything from JD with a ten foot pole.
