I'm rather proud of this!

Reason being, this aircraft, G-RAES was originally a Pratt & Whitney powered aircraft when I downloaded it, but as in real life, she's infact equipped with GE90 engines, I wanted to try and convert it to a GE90 model in FS2004. I put the textures into a GE90 base model and it wouldn't work. The engine textures were just blank, BUT I managed to do it by just copying the engine textures from another BA 777 texture folder that has GE90 engines into the textures for this aircraft (sounds confusing i know..!) and wa-hey... it worked. So now it is a fully converted GE90 plane!!

And here she is with her brand new engines!












LUVVVVVVVVVVLY!

Now for my next bit of magic!

Myself and Lee (BMIFlyer) spent approximately 90 minutes trying to figure out how to get the smoke effects of an MD83 to work on the Meljet 777... No easy task as the configuration for the MD83 smoke differs massively from the 777. At first I just installed the smoke effects into the 777 and tested it, and the smoke (when activated) was coming out of the 777's tail wings and looks totally ridiculous! But with Lee's genius, and my testing, we came up with something and it worked a treat!!















And here is a smoky Peter Max in full flow!






I originally wanted this smoke effect for my United 777's as they are well known for their smokey take-offs, but i think I shall be using it for all 777 flights from now on!

Thanks Lee for your superb help in making this possible!  bigthumbsup 

Chris

Is it where the game freezes? And is it only with FS2004?, because Ive never had it with FS2002.

The blue screen of death is, amazingly, a blue screen that all too often appears when some error occurs while using Windows, usually when doing something particularly important, such as landing a plane. It basically tells you about the error, and occasionally why it has happened. Damn Windows...

This was the first time I have ever flown this type. It handled nice in the air, but I did not like the feel of the plane on finals and while taxiing on the ground.

Next flight will be ATL-TLH on a DL 738, which will bring me home after a lonnng journey around the world.

Nice pics there guys, and nice NWA DC10 there Ross.
I've been looking for a USAirways A330 for ages! Obviously not hard enough lol.

All of you are making me jealous!    My FS dosen't work anymore, it just freezes after 5 mins, not even that, of simming, and I have to restart the computer, and even after that, the graphics are crap (I even have an ATI Radeon 9600 128MB) and it is sooo jittery, I can hardly play.

If some of you guys could help me it will be much appreciated.

p.s. How do you install Airport Environment Upgrade?

It's a POSKY. Get it at Project Opensky

Download it from Avsim and just copy and paste the textures into your texture folder. Don't forget to overwrite!. AEU v7 did not work for me so I got v6 and it just works fine.

It is a fantastic plane, though, and possibly my favorite non-jet aircraft.
