There are no plans for other versions of the 737 at the moment.

Cheers

iFly is still heavily developing the NG,
and whether or not another project is in the planning
is at this time a complete gamble, no one knows,
not even the development team.

There have been other topics about it, do a search and you'll find it.
The answer at this time would be a definite no, I think.

cheers

Tom.

Yes there are other developers working on the older versions, I am glad iFly are continuing to develop and improve the NG.  It is an extraordinary task to take a massively complex, system rich, electronic based aircraft and make it flyable on a computer screen in a way that simulates the real aircraft.

Complex though it might be, making a full size simulation on a moveable platform for RW pilot training is in some ways much easier.

I personally don't yearn after the older analog models, but for those who do, there seems to be plenty coming with CLS and Captain Sim to fill the gap.

And of course the 'the competitor" is still to release there version of the NG.  There are going to be more guppies to fly soon than there are enough days in the year.
Warmest Regards,

Ian McPhail

At last someone has spotted the truth about our little world of FS.
 
Why is a full size full motion flight simulator easier to build I hear everyone gasp, well for three very simple reasons:-
 
  1. There is no VC PANEL that uses huge amounts of processing power
  2. There are no 2d PANEL views that use a huge amount of proccessing power
  3. There are no external aircraft views.

As all the instumentation, swithches and knobs are HARDWARE BASED there is not a need for 2D or 3D panels, this is one of the major parts of all MSFS aircraft and the bits that use the most processing power. In RW FULL SIZE SIMULATORS you do not have external views of the aircraft in flight, why would they need them, real world pilots never jump outside while in the cruise to have a look at their aircraft in flight!

Even the scenery they use is far less complicated than what we try to use in MSFS, yes their airports may be very detailed, but out side of the airport boundry or local area the world is very basic and featureless. You have guessed again requiring less processing power.
 
What developers achieve in MSFS is truly amazing when you compare them to real world simulators.
