EADT 737 vs XP11 default

Recommended Posts

Is the EADT still far more advanced?  I actually like the default XP11 FMS, and it seems you can't use it in the EADT version?  Anyone using the EADT in XP11?

Have you tried XFMC?  It's free and it'll work for the 737 as well as a great many other aircraft.  I've used it in the FFA350 too, but unfortunately, it killed my eyes because of the fixed size and I couldn't resize it.

Actually I had that problem too...  I did use the XFMC for the ddenn CL30 but I didn't like how it took over my aircraft.  It could have been a classic case of PEBKAC

With the 737 mod by zibo, the default 737 is pretty close. Even the map is now readable.

Where can I get the mod?  I mean dumb question - maybe at the org?

Ok so yeah I found it.  I don't quite understand the readme.  From his google drive I'm getting all the files.  For a brand new mod install what files do I need?

Simply download the complete package (the whole "B737-800X" folder) and install it as a separate aircraft.

Later, you can download the smaller updates he releases very frequently.

Ok, so basically I copied the LR version into the root aircraft folder, then I renamed per his instructions.  Then I copied his airplane mod files into the renamed folder.  Sound correct?  Yeah so I got it.... wow!  It's like the PMDG version lol

You don't need to copy anything.

You just download from his Google Drive the complete aircraft. It's the folder "B737-800X". Right-click on it and select "download".

Oh well thanks.  Had to go to work but I'll check it out later.  Looks like the FMS is way more realistic?  Very cool!

The default FMS is the core and used for entering routes etc. but Zibo added a lot of stuff on top of it, to make it LOOK more 737 like. I don't think it has a real effect on anything, but it adds immersion to pretend it had. So in regards of the FMS, the EADT x737 WITH the paid 737 FMC is more complete, but if you just compare the base EADT x737 WITHOUT paid FMS and Zibo mod 737, Zibo's version can definitely compete. It is a fun interim 737 until the IXEG is updated.

Ryan, I think he meant IXEG update their 737 classic to XP11 ;)

The default 738 looks much much better especially on the inside.

Visually, yes. The big selling point of the EADT 738 is that you can install the paid FMC, which is more comprehensive and more Boeing-esque than X-Plane 11's default FMC. But one can fly very nicely with the Zibo-modded default plane.

I wish they would update the engine sounds of the default. I can't stand the sound of the default aircraft except for the brilliant Cessna sounds. The EADT 737 aircraft is far superior in this regard and worth installing for that.

For me, good quality sound is a huge part of the immersion experience. To my ears the default 737 and other default jets sound like what would happen if a vacuum cleaner and a washing machine fell in love :senyum:

If you go to Zibos google drive you can find a experimental FMOD sound folder that he made. It isn't finished but it's much better then the default.

Don't quote me on this, but I believe I saw that LR will update the sounds of some more default aircraft eventually. They haven't done it yet as they didn't want to delay the release of XP11.
