Editorial

The Dreamliner is one of those aircraft that holds a special place in the hearts of many people; it’s exciting, engaging and extremely fun to sit inside and this makes the perfect combination for anyone who wants to find a classy yet comfortable aircraft to enjoy being inside. This package, then, gives you a total remake of the actual panels of the Dreamliner itself.

This lets you have a quality range of artwork and gauges included, as well as a heap of new additions that looks absolutely excellent. As far as the design and the detail goes, this is one of the more impressive panel sets that you are likely to come across when you are using FSX.

As far as the design and the style goes, though, I was hugely impressed. It all ticks together excellently and makes the most of default MSFS gauges to put it all together. Given the rather charming nature of the cockpit in a Dreamliner, though, this looks outstanding and makes it nice and simple for users to just relax within the cockpit itself.

By using the range of features that have been added in you’ll quickly get a nice feel for what the actual Dreamliner should feel like. Going on my own independent research afterwards I found that things like accuracy, scale and detail were all far above what you might have originally been expecting. One of the most impressive parts, though, was the detail of the overall composition and placement of the different gauges and the like.

The gauges all blend together expertly and look outstanding, making it extremely easy for fans of the aircraft to be able to tell where everything is supposed to be going.

I’ve had the luxury of being on a Dreamliner in the past and I have to say that although this is just the panels and I only got a glimpse of them in the past through an exhibition, the representation is very impressive. It manages to capture many of the most important details expertly, giving them all the credence and the quality that they need to stay easy on the eye and simple to work with.

When compared with the original panels and the like, though, this bitmap and gauge setting really does make a big difference. The overall level of performance that you get from it is also much improved, making the whole thing so much easier to work with and to enjoy using.

The XML files that are used to give operation to the gauges and the like have been adjusted and improved hugely, so that they all run with the right level of accuracy and detail. If precision is your thing then I recommend you pick this up – it can make the interior of a Dreamliner so much more enjoyable to be inside, revamping everything entirely.
