For the 50th Anniversary of the Boeing 747, SSG is proud to announce the release of its long awaited follow-on to the SSG 747-8 Series.
This is no mere update, in many ways it is a whole new aircraft, starting with the base model in Plane Maker working up to the 3D external model, 3D cockpit and systems/displays. It includes a new menu system using a tablet and a new sound set from Turbine Sound Studios (TSS). SSG is releasing the Intercontinental passenger version first and the Freighter will come later as a free upgrade for those who purchase the new version upon release.
The entire external 3D model for v2 has been redone, including the following:
All new fuselage closely modeled on the real one with added details
Each door can be opened individually and is more detailed
dded animations and details (almost all parts that can open/move on the aircraft are modeled).
New external details such as a satellite antenna and tail camera
New cut passenger windows instead of textures
New vertical and horizontal stabilizers with added details
New nacelles and engines with more details and new animations
Reworked and more detailed landing gear/gear doors with additional animation
Improved and more detailed leading and trailing edge flaps and added flap mechanisms
Upper deck interior with seats/galleys and stairs to lower deck
New wing flex and nacelle animations
The textures for the entire aircraft have been redone to match the new model, along with decals for certain detailed areas, right down to most of the external placards, working closely with our technical advisors to ensure all the main details are present and that we have gotten them right.
The entire cockpit 3D model has been largely redone and completely retextured.
