    Are you aware that we have a file library right here at FlightSim.Com? I believe we have those base packages in our file library.

    Looking in the file library I am finding only FS2004 TDS 737-900 base packages, so far. FSX 737-900, if a whole aircraft, will be FS2004/FSX. Did TDS come up with a native FSX only version?

    Same with the TDS 737-800.

    The FSX model update files (example IH50) are necessary to get the lights working correctly. I have not seen them anywhere except TDS Bookface. You don't have to join the TDS page, just open a account with Bookface with minimal information, get the files then close the account again.

    I saved all the files but don't have the rights to upload them or I would.

    A aircraft folder would have following subfolders...

    Model
    Panel
    Sound
    Texture

    When you get a updated model file (file ends in .mdl), you would simply replace it in the Model folder above. All there is to it.

    I looked up the latest FSX updated model files listed at TDS Facebook...

    737-800
    FSX_TDS738_CFM56-7BE--LP2W3_IH53.zip
    FSX_TDS738_CFM56-7BE--LP2W2_IH53.zip

    737-900
    FSX_TDS739ER_CFM56-7BE--LP2W3_IH56.zip
    FSX_TDS739ER_CFM56-7BE--LP2W2_IH56.zip

    Just don't get the MAX 7,8, or 9 for the standard 737's or vice versa

    For a beginner, you should pick a base package from the FlightSim library and install it. You will find there is no Virtual Cockpit. To get one, look up 737 VC merge and you will find instructions in the FlightSim Forum to use the default FSX 737 VC. Then you will find some of the lights don't work. That's when you get the above mentioned FSX update models to fix it.

    Or just BUY a ready to fly PMDG 737NGX -800/900 for $69.99

    I know how to do that. I am looking where to find the FSX-native files, not how to merge them. I know how to do that.
