Stephen posted a topic in News! The latest developments in X-PlaneNews! - Aircraft Update : Boeing 787-8 to10.50 Voidhawk9 has done an update to Heinz Dzuirowitz's Boeing 787-9. Heinz the original developer is sadly not with us any more, so it is great news that Voidhawk9 with VMAX has continued on his wonderful legacy. 10.50 changes: Pushback Truck now functions with both VIP and Passenger versions. (64bit required for Windows users. Works in 32bit and 64bit on Linux and probably Mac) Pushback Truck documentation re-written to be easier to understand. The original was confusing to many users. Flight model entirely re-built. Much more is known relative to when this 787 was first released! Points of note: All-new supercritical airfoils. Wing (and tail) layout rebuilt to higher accuracy. Control geometry, including all flaps, ailerons, spoilers, etc., revised to accurate positions and area (and deflections, where known). All body shapes more accurate, including fuselage, engines, and pylons. This greatly improves body lift/drag dynamics. Partial 'fly-by-wire' implementation using X-plane's own artificial stability. Provides much more realistic response to the pilot. Fuel-flows now accurate for for correct cruise range. Exterior lighting re-worked to match reality, and eliminates 'ball of light' under the nose. VIP version has the custom sounds of the passenger version. Wing textures revised, so that slats and spoilers now blend cleanly into the wing when retracted, as in reality. Cockpit windows now have golden tint, like the real aircraft, instead of purple. Small FPS improvement in cockpit views. This update will keep the Dreamliner flying a bit longer and keep it current, so a big thanks to Voidhawk9 You can download the updated 10.50 version by going to your X-PlaneStore account and downloading and the update is available now... _____________________________________________________________________________________ The Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner by VMAX is available from the X-Plane.Org Store here : Boeing 787 Dreamliner And is priced at only US$19.95 Features Officially licensed By the Boeing © Corporation Accurate dimensions based on 2D and 3D drawings supplied by Boeing © Great Flight model Accurate and smooth flight model Realistic Wingflex Compatible with Advanced FMC systems UFMC and X-FMC Compatible (but not required) Awesome 3D details New pilots and co-pilots Decorated cabin. 2 versions: Passenger and executive Detailed wing textures Virtual cockpit based on the real 787 Dreamliner Drop-down overhead panel with use of 40+ datarefs Pop up panels for easier navigation: Radio, FMS,Throttle Tons of liveries All paints are high-resolution - Use of normal maps for superior texturing See additional liveries here Pushbask Truck Fully controlled truck - Truck video here Flight Model by X-Aerodynamics Requirements: X-Plane 10.50+ (any edition) running in 64 bit mode Windows, Mac or Linux (64bit OS required) 512Mb VRAM Minimum Current version: 10.50 (last updated Sep 20th 2016) Images courtesy of Voidhawk9 ______________________________________________________________________ Stephen Dutton 23rd September 2016 Copyright©X-Plane Reviews: X-PlaneReviews 2016
