The Overland 777 works in FSX, you just have to port over the config files according to David Nunez' instructions in the AVSIM library and Hex edit some of the texture files, recoloring the alpha channel to match the fuselage color, which will resolve the transparent textures on the nose above the cockpit and in the radar domes. I use a freeware program called DXTBMP. Don't ask me for the texture files though, I've only fixed one livery! I'll come back and post a screenshot.Cheers,http://www.my-buddy-icon.com/Icons/objects/red_3d_plane.gifAlex ChristoffN562ZBaltimore, MD

Hey Alex!Thanks for your reply!You are correct - it semi-works in FSX. I have no idea how to work with textures, so for me this is a bit of chinese. The panel also has some issues as there are some windows that appear "black" and unfortunately, there is no good 777 alternate panel for FSX that could be used. Other than that, she flies good in FSX.Sincerely,Dennis D. Mullert

Dennis:Here is the fix for the Overland VC gauges in FSX:1. Open panel.cfg by some text editor and find "Vcockpit01" and"Vcockpit02" section.2. You can see the "Vcockpit01" and "Vcockpit02" section has a line "Background_color=0,0,0"3. Change the parameter "Background_color=0,0,0" to"Background_color=2,2,2" This treatment will fix metal VC gauge panel problem for almost all aircraft models.http://www.my-buddy-icon.com/Icons/objects/red_3d_plane.gifAlex ChristoffN562ZBaltimore, MD

The Aerosim planes are nice but truthfully, having both, the Overland planes and virtual cockpits are so much better looking. Both fly equally well, IMO. http://www.my-buddy-icon.com/Icons/objects/red_3d_plane.gifAlex ChristoffN562ZBaltimore, MD

Given the very real performance issues most of us still have with FSX and airliners, even the defaults really, at busy airports, I don't see how any of these highly detailed airports are suppsed to offer much in the way of realistic performance. I mean yes, great to look at and marvel at all of the activity, but the palpable difference in flight dynamics flying at 10 FPS vs 20+ is FPS is very real, despite some of the advice floating around in these forums that 10 FPS in FSX is an enjoyable flying experience. Not after you have tasted 20-30 FPS it is not. My experience is that FSX is a wonderful GA platform, with exceptional scenery detail possibilities and flies beautifully in less busy areas, or if you turn down the scenery detail. But that's the whole point of FSX, is the scenery detail, so we don't want to do that. I still just use FS9 for airliner flying to busy airports, which is the kind of flying I do most.My Two Cents,http://www.my-buddy-icon.com/Icons/objects/red_3d_plane.gifAlex ChristoffN562ZBaltimore, MD

Hello Alex!Yes, looks nice and I'm sure it flies nicely too, but they do not have aRR nor a PW version and have no plans to add those either. I am a DAL UAL, and AAL flyer and without those variants available - no dice for me.Sincerely,Dennis D. Mullert

It's in the file lib here, and if you're doing any serious flying to or from MPTO it is really a must-have imo. The default MPTO is quite lacking. Grant you my MPTO doesn't have any gmax objects, only Generic Buildings. But the AFCAD portions were heavily tested by me and darn realistic.Right now I am finishing up MNMG Managua Nicaragua. It is a gmax scenery so it's taken me a little longer to finish.MGGT has neat approaches. I don't know what type of flying you do, but if you use the real world approach plates, etc. you may know about the ARC/DME approach into MGGT, it to me is really fun approach to fly in a heavy.RhettAMD 3700+ (@2585 mhz), eVGA 7800GT 256 (Guru3D 93.71), ASUS A8N-E, PC Power 510 SLI, 2gb Corsair XMS 3-3-3-8 (1T), WD 150 gig 10000rpm Raptor, WD 250gig 7200rpm SATA2, Seagate 120gb 5400 rpm external HD, CoolerMaster Praetorian
