Installation Instructions
======================================================

1. Place the texture folders 'Texture.TURKISH-NEW & Texture.TURKISH-OLD' into your Flight Sim X directory, under ...SimObjects\Airplanes\B737_800
4. Open the aircraft.cfg file and paste the following text into the file after the previous aircraft repaint, ensuring to replace [fltsim.x] with the next number in sequence, e.g. [fltsim.9]

[fltsim.x]
title=Boeing 737-800 TURKISH 'New Livery'

description=One should hardly be surprised that the world's most prolific manufacturer of commercial aircraft is also the producer of the world's most popular jetliner. The 737 became the best-selling commercial jetliner worldwide when orders for it hit 1,831 in June 1987 (surpassing Boeing's own 727 as the previous champ). However, it wasn't always that way\s in the first few years of production, there were so few orders that Boeing considered canceling the program. They didn't, and the airplane has more than proven itself in over three decades of service.

Editorial

I decided to download this awesome take on the old Boeing 747-800 when I was informed it was on our listing to pick up; it’s an aircraft that I have a lot of time for. Also, I’ve had the pleasure of seeing the Turkish Airlines design up close and personally so I know what to look for when it comes to the attention to detail needed.

This done a great job of giving me an idea of what to keep an eye out for, making it much easier for me to see the progress that this mod was making. However, how good is it? Is it really worth remembering? Would I use it again?

The Flight

The flight was one of the most impressive parts of the system, giving me a hugely detailed and authentic flight format. The controls were easy to manage, the style was just as I had read about, and the attention to detail with the flight dynamics is spot on. It feels really easy to fly and simpler to manage, making it a very effective system that replicated the real-life version of the aircraft perfectly.

I was mostly impressed by the range of features included in the cockpit, though. The quality of the aircraft was very impressive, giving me a really comfortable flight that had lots to look at and pick from.

The Design

The design, though, is the main attraction of this mod. Creator Alex James has made a very impressive rendition of changes to the livery to ensure it carries the right quality of textures across the board. With various improvements to features such as the way the textures fit right through to how detailed they are, this makes it really easy to buy into the image that the designer was selling.

As arguably the most popular jetliner on the planet it was no surprise to see this level of care and precision in the design – it’s something that many people love flying. That aside, though, James has done a great job to put together multiple little changes and improvements that just make the whole thing feel that little bit more impressive.

The Verdict

The final verdict that I would give for this mod is that it’s very impressive, but it’s not revolutionary. If you are not looking for something that is a piece of cake to fly, and concentrates on the quality of the view as much as anything else, this is well worth taking the time to download.

Hey, can you do it with the new logo of Turkish airlines?

Hi,

When I have copy-pasted the code you wrote here, I get the message "no access". Do you know why?

I also tried the 777-aircraft THY which I also think you made, and there I couldn't see the control panel.
