FSX TDS Boeing 727-200 Passenger Base Pack

Complete with Base ModelJump to: Screenshots | Comments | File Details

Installation:

FS2004 – Place the included “TDS_B727-200” or “TDS_B727-200F” folder into your Flight Simulator 9/Aircraft directory. Inside of the TDS_B727-200 folder will be an Effects folder. Place the contents of the Effects folder (except for the included readme.txt file) into your Flight Simulator 9/Effects folder. The “tds_smoke” bitmap should now also be in your Flight Simulator 9/Effects/texture folder.

FSX - Place the included “TDS_B727-200” or “TDS_B727-200F” folder into your Microsoft Flight Simulator X/SimObjects/Airplanes directory. Inside of the TDS_B727-200 folder will be an Effects folder. Place the contents of the Effects folder (except for the included readme.txt file) into your Microsoft Flight Simulator X/Effects folder. The “tds_smoke” bitmap should now also be in your Microsoft Flight Simulator X/Effects/texture folder. Prepar3D installation will be very similar.

727 on runway. Operation:

The TDS B727 includes an automatic smoke system developed by David Biggar, which will activate at a specific fuel-flow rate. It is not necessary to push “I” to activate. Should you choose not to use the automated smoke, you can remove any of the associated smoke files (“db72smoke.fx” from ‘Effects’ or remove the “TDS_Smoke” xml gauge from the panel/Tds_727_util (or Tds_727F_util) folder). Or simply “comment out” (//) the panel.cfg entry for the smoke system. 

Utility Panel

As with all TDS aircraft, Hiroshi Igami created a customized “Utility Panel” to allow specific control of the Advanced Lighting System and Ground Equipment/Door operation. The utility panel may be opened by simultaneously pressing SHIFT and 7.

Additionally, a “Flight Dynamics” folder is included in the base package with different flight characteristics for a few of the variants. Should you find yourself flying a particular model often, feel free to replace your main 727’s aircraft.cfg and “.air” file with one of the alternates.

Due to the complex nature of the custom xml and panel files, should you choose to merge your own 2d panel (or virtual cockpit – FSX) it is important to keep the original TDS utility panel and associated xml files intact within the panel folder and panel.cfg file. Otherwise you will lose the custom xml animations and programming, and the aircraft will revert to “Default Animation Mode” where the light effects get unrealistic, no self-illumination (cabin light effects, beacon and strobe ‘splash’ effects), etc. Visit our Facebook page or forum for more details or help with customizing your own choice of 2D panel/virtual cockpit.

We recommend 2D panels from Historic Jetliners Group (HJG) or Thomas Ruth. Edit your aircraft config to match the radios used by your panel. Tom Ruth's 727 panels use radios with standby radios. Accordingly, for use with his panel, your aircraft configuration file must have this entry (also for use with the default panel):

[Radios]
//RUTH TYPE PANELS// Audio.1 = 1
Com.1 = 1, 1
Com.2 = 1, 1
Nav.1 = 1, 1, 1
Nav.2 = 1, 1, 0
Adf.1 = 1 Transponder.1 = 1 Marker.1 = 1

HJG's panels do not have standby radios. For use with these panels, your aircraft config must have this entry:

[Radios]
//HJG TYPE PANELS// Audio.1=1
Com.1=1, 0 Com.2=0, 1
Nav.1=1, 0, 1 Nav.2=1, 0, 0 Adf.1=1
Adf.2=1 Transponder.1=1 Marker.1=1

... of course, you are certainly free to use any panel you choose.

Missing/Broken Wings

The TDS B727, like all of our aircraft, include a theft-prevention code that will “break” the wings of the external model. If your aircraft is missing or has broken wings or other missing critical components after installing a repaint or modifying the aircraft.cfg, it is because the “title=” content is missing information. "FREEWARE_(C)_TDS_01AUG2014" must ALWAYS be included to prevent this from happening. Any characters after that, are your choice. FSX has a limitation of 127 total characters.

How can I change the antennas, show the gravel kit, etc.?

The base package includes a “TDS_727_Option” PDF that was written by Hiroshi Igami to address these.

What do all of the different model codes mean?

We’ve recreated virtually every version of the 727 that was ever produced or modified. See the following letters and their meanings...

W – Winglets installed
E – Eyebrow windows removed (Above the cockpit)
C – Standard JT8D engines with clamshell thrust reversers
HF – FedEx Hushkit – typically how you would have seen a B727 towards the end of their lifecycles HR – Raisbeck-equipped engines
F – Freighter/Cargo
