I’ve spent a lot of my time in FS2004 flying larger aircraft in recent weeks and months as I’ve been trying to improve my knowledge of different types of aircraft. Whilst the wonderful Boeing 747-400 needs no introduction to me, it’s something that I would fly every day and have a deep affiliation with.
One thing that really interested me, though, was the fact that in FS2004 the panels just feel so dated compared to the modern equivalents. So, I decided to pick up this Boeing 747-400 panel set from the database and give it a whirl to see if it could help plug these holes for me.
What I found was that it made something new and exciting which was incredibly simple to use and provided me with plenty of nice little features that helped to improve the realism and the design but also made the performance that little bit more enjoyable for me.
With basic features dealt with and added in there such as new back lighting (just as you get in the real thing, I’m told) you will feel as if you are flying in something that goes way beyond the normal boundaries of what people tend to be used to within flight simulation.
The panels add something fresh and exciting to the design, and make it much easier in general to produce something more akin to the design of the real thing. If, like me, you enjoy the concept of realism and being true to the source material then this is more than likely the perfect path for you to go down.
It serves as an excellent supplement for the Boeing 747-400 panel, and it ensures that everything comes together and makes sure you are left with a system which is easy to be a part of and extremely fun; it makes the whole cockpit just feel more intuitive and more fun.
Now you will feel as if you are flying something unique instead of something so plainly generic, and it can help to jazz up the interior suitable by helping you really buy into the format and the connection that comes with the Boeing 747-400 panels; they are quite hard to work at times, but once you get to grips with them you’ll find they give you access to power within you aircraft that many people would simply struggle to get to grips with.
What I did find, though, was that the panel.cfg addition really makes a big difference in the back-end; lots of little changes are added in here that change performance and the overall control of the aircraft which is obviously a lot of fun. Likewise, it also adds in new 2D side views that can be used with both the OpenSky and MelJet creations of this aircraft.
If you have been looking forward to trying it out, you are more than likely going to find that these panels will help you get a much more authentic representation of what makes the 747-400 such a beloved part of aviation history.
