Boeing 777 Builder
Andy, I've just spent the weekend trying this free package out. Even though I'm not a 737 simmer I've been investigating a number of network gauge sets and the price of this one is very appealing....FREE! They're mostly for the 737 too.
I think it lacks lots of the functionality of the PM and other payware suites, however it's pretty good as far as displays are concerned. No EICAS as yet but apparently in the plan. Of all that I tried (PM, FSXpand & FDS) this was one of the easiest to setup and run. PM was just as easy and the others difficult to a varying degree. As for the EICAS, Opencockpits have a free one that runs like a charm. It's quite old though at 2003 vintage and no frills, however as far as I could tell it replicated all the readouts that my FS screen had. I had the OGS PFD/ND running along side the OC EICAS no problem via my network using WideFS, and connected to FSX to boot!
