Editorial

This simple little texture package does exactly what you would be hoping for when you pick the mod up. It’s a remake of the default Boeing 737-800, giving it a nice little makeover and improving some of the minor features.

I was really impressed with the crispness of the textures. At the very least, it’s as good as the original textures, if not a little more detailed and sharp in terms of detail. However, Tom Bakody – the developer – has gone to extra lengths to improve specular and bump mapping alongside developing fresh and new customized alpha channels.

Stylish and Simple

While it’s hardly re-inventing the wheel, this totally free addition does exactly what it promises: it adds a nice new livery for going alongside the original Boeing 737-800. I started to use it quite a lot for transport and cargo role-plays online with friends: you might find that it has the same use for you.

Whatever you decide, I would recommend grabbing this. If you tend to use the default 737-800 then you can get a lot of fun and out of this livery. Again, it’s hardly changing the world or fitting the Boeing with a hyperdrive. It’s a nice little add-on, that adds a nice touch of realism and extra choice to your aviation experience.

I would recommend that you look to give this a try anyway. It’s a nice livery to have if you are ever in need of hopping into the cockpit of a FedEx aircraft!

Ignore my prior comment, it was for another FedEx 738 by a different person.

The mirrored text on the right engine doesn't look good.
