iFly 737NG P3Dv5 development screenshots

Recommended Posts

Big question: how does the 737 behave at accelerated sim rates (4x, 8x)? I have this bird for FS9 (my first serious payware and my first use of a credit card ever) and FSX, but it always went off the route, even at 2x sometimes. Other aircraft were more stable (up to 16x in FS9, 8x in FSX).

For P3D I went to the other side because of this issue (the other side had the Auto Cruise function), and also because back then there was nothing for v5.

Hi Luis,

This version has Intelligent Cruise mode build into the SIMU menu in the CDU, it allows up to 8x acceleration and is stable in light turbulence at that rate. We do recommend a max of 4x only as there is a bug in FS/P3D since forever that messes with fuel and time calculations at rates over 4x. And it has Pause at T/D also now.

You enable the option(s) per livery via the My Fleet function in the Configuration tool.

At last! Since the release of the iFly 747 for FS9 and FSX, that's a feature I've always wanted to see in the 737. Thank you very much!

Yeah it required certain stability engineering to be able to implement it.

Wow, this looks great! If I get some time I will probably pick this up this weekend and take it for a flight. Great job iFly/Flight1.

Pecking away at my paint list for this lovely bird....The devs are Chinese, so I will be painting a few more liveries in the region they would typically fly in, this obviously being one as their national carrier. 😉 

Almost done, but you can see she still wearing the JAL wings from my last paint...just need to update those, do the winglets, paint the doors, and a few touchups, then she'll be uploaded here: http://library.flight1.net/

How is it that most Chinese liveries look like they belong in the sixties?

Yea, the lack of liveries is an issue for now. Maybe more are in the works. Also having trouble setting key bindings to use in FSUIPC. Other the these she’s really nice. Love the flight dynamics. Real beauty on par with NGXu. Nice to have some NG diversity.

Thanks.  They will be uploaded here: http://library.flight1.net/

I already have 6 uploaded there....hoping some more painters will come on board and help this old man out!

I hit the big 60 this year...had 3 surgeries, one involving cancer, and the other 2 regarding my eyes (cataract removal).  Up until then...I had never spent a night in the hospital except the day I way born. LOL.   Hoping this is not a trend. 🤪

I'm not as fast as I used to be painting...then again all those years ago we were painting an entire plane on ONE 1024 map in some cases...now its 3 (or more ) 4096 maps...and then you have to paint the PBR channels, so there's that as well that is slowing the process down a bit.

Regarding requests....I'm always open for suggestions on liveries, but can't promised anything.  Request away and I'll consider each one and let you know.   I'm on a lot of beta teams though...and strangely, they all want me to paint their planes too...LOL.

Right now I have probably 2 more Asian liveries in mind, then 1 or 2 European paints, then maybe a few more in both Americas.  I have one African paint in the hopper, as @Jannier is from those parts...not sure how many more I'll get to. Other parts of the world are being considered too....sometimes when paging thru the 100s of shots of a paint I'm doing, I'll see another livery in the adjacent gate and think...hmmm. 🙂  Its a sickness that you really want to paint them all...and at one time in my young painting years I thought I could LOL.

How about that Eastern Airlines silver hockey stick livery you posted a picture of the other day?

For myself there is the two main lines I fly, American and Delta. Just need a Delta paint for the -900.

Already downloaded in anticipation of a weekend purchase. Thanks for your work on these.

In keeping with your suggested geographic areas, Ryanair, WestJet, Kenya Airways or Comair of South Africa would be my preferred repaints.

Stay healthy!

Stay away from the cancer stuff, hope your doing better.

Its probably already been requested but two of the most popular would be "Alaska Air" and "Southwest". If you get around to it. Thanks.

Thanks for the feedback guys....

@Greggy_D....as much as I love Eastern and bare metal...it would be fictional as you know.  Not completely ruling out other bare metal liveries in the future...but getting PBR metal just right is not easy, and varies for each model and dev.  So even though I've done it on PMDG, and the Leonardo Maddog, and the MSFS DC-6, I'd be starting all over on the iFy 737.  The Level of Effort (LOE) is VERY high

@Patco Lch..I should be able to get the Delta paint on the -900....LOE isn't that high, so you may see it in the future.

@F737NG... I've been eyeballing a few on your list, stand by. 😉

@TurboKen...  Thanks Ken..yeah Cancer sucks...and I can officially say that, but I'm hopefully "cancer free" after my operation...fingers crossed and many future tests to make sure I stay that way.

Funny you should mention SWA.....

Sadly, the way the model is placed on the texture maps (iFly737NG800_Fuselage3.dds to be exact and specifically where the fuse is cut right where the stripes hit), I'm having many issues with getting the stripes just right.  So much so I pulled it out of the paint booth and parked her on the ramp until I have time to concentrate on them.  She'll eventually be released.  Oh, the LOE on this task alone....HUGE for the fact it takes endless tweaking moving even 1/2 pixel at a time to see a result.
