→In the hangar: Re-ordering, some minor grammatical corrections
==In the hangar==
Devel====XSaint is currently developing a Boeing 737-900ER, a variant of the B737NG. Currently in general testing, the plane is estimated to be released between this November and next Ferbruary. Along with Xsaint, countless other supporters including kyokoyama (alphaMedia) and JcHND, the aircraft went to become one of the most advanced aircraft in the FlightGear archives. Already, liveries for Continental and Jet Airways have been in demand, as well as "orders" from virtual airlines such as Skynet International and Aurelen Europe.
====737-100 and 727-230 in CVS====
Heiko Schulz is making a model of the 727-230, another nice aircraft of the same decade like the 737-100. It is currently in developement, but already flyable in CVS. It will also include a 3d-cockpit, tyre-smoke and pushback. When the autopilot will be finished, the Sim-pilots have to fly here like in the old days: No GPS, no FMS, no Autothrottle! Time in which flying really was flying!
The 737-series is
really attractive to many users and developers . Especially the 737-300 is really loved as it is one of the most known aircraft in the world.
The 737-300 model in 1.9.1 wasn't shaped right- the fuelage was to long, but not wide enough, the wingspan of a 737-100, and the complete model was floating above the ground, wings not textured.
This has been fixed now using free available
datas from Boeing and some modelling pages. Unfortunately liveries made for the old model won't fit anymore. It wasn't possible as the old model hadn't got the right shape. :-(
But it is possible to convert with a bit work the old liveries, and making better ones new, as there is a
paintkit included. And some other nice features were added:
There is no 3d-cockpit yet, but the chances are better than ever to get one.
