Hey Tarq.Excellent work, my friend!Here is a suggestion: The angle of the blades seem to acute, meaning on a real engine, you almost cannot see behind the fan blades, their angle is more shallow. The way it is now, from this angle, you can see inside. Also, I think you could save polys by not having the blades behind the fan. And of course the above suggestion would make sure those would never be seen anyways...Have a look at Mel's 777 engine fans and you will see what I mean. Mel goes through great extents to model fan blades properly.Other than that, it looks very good, keep it up!

Hey Tarq.Looking much better! Now all you have to do is make sure the spacing between one blade and the other is the same as to the next one (perhaps you planned it like this?), and that the overall number of blades is correct.I know they are totally different engines, but have a look athttp://www.meljet.com/Boeing777/Images/Scr...777V2-C-01L.jpgto see how Mel did the fan blades (and even the static vanes behind it) for the new version of his 777 which comes out this Friday. And for some more details and good ideas, look at http://www.meljet.com/Boeing777/Boeing777screenshots.htm

Hey Tarq.Before anything, sorry if you are getting tired of me giving you suggestions man. I am just trying to make your end result better and better!And it is, this last set of blades is MUCH better! I believe now the only thing left is the following: I think the width of the blades is too big far away from the root. Meaning, as you look at the engine from the very front, you should not be able to see past the fanblades. But if you are at a slight angle, like the shot you took (and Melvin's engine shot), you should be able to see the end of the blades.Also notice how the root of the blade has a different angle than the tip. This happens because the speed of these two distinct parts of the blade is different, so the angle of attack must be different. Notice how the root faces almost (almost, not totally) forward, and the tip almost sideways. If you introduced a bit of twist like that, they would look much better. Not sure if I was clear, if not, let me know.And I have not seen an upclose pic of the baldes on the A330 engines. They may have more or less twist than the ones on this 777, so try and find a pic and copy that.

Hello,2 things: 1 you need to increase the size of the spinner, abit too small if you compare them on the photo.2 the fan should be deeper inside the nacelles. I know we are being a bit hard on you, but believe me, the results will be well worth it. We just want you to have a good looking model.Take care,Udo.PGT:-wave

ive given the blades a bit of a twist and have made the spinner a bit larger and have put the whole thing a bit further inside the engine housing

Hey Jan.Just so you know, for next time, you don't need the huge link from a.net, just copy the link that is right on top of the picture :-).

Hey tarq.Ever better man! The blades still need more twisting (as a whole, both the root and the tips, have a look at the second pic by Jan), and I believe the whole thing has a bit more to go towards the inside, and the spinner could be a tad bigger, but you be the judge.Getting second opinions, like you are doing, is perfectly alright and healthy, but you should also like what you see. So look at a picture and ask yourself if what you have done is a faithful representation of the real thing.

Fabio,You're completely right, but i was a little bit "lost" between the Airbusses.(Only B767-3..)But i admire the works, so tried to give some hints.Jan"Procul Negotiis"

Fabio,100% operable and very stable, nice "eyecandy".The major drawback are the NAVDATA.Since xml cannot read a .txt file, i have to write everything in xml code and that is very timeconsuming (and errorprone).So i made up until now 20 flightplans.Everything works, don't have to explain, but after pressing TOGA things happen automatically untill clearing the active.Jan"Procul Negotiis"

Hey Jan.That is awesome. Great job on it man!Have you tried C? To do an FMS, that would be ideal.

Hey Jan.C and C++ are really not bad! I think most people make it out to be something impossible to understand, but coupled with some modern books, it is quite the contrary!I can recommend some books if you'd like.
