Thread: New VC upgrade for the default 737 available

  1. Default New VC upgrade for the default 737 available

    Hi all,

    It's been many years since Alejandro Rojas Lucena released his wonderful upgraded VC for the FSX default 737-800. This has provided many simmers (including myself) with gazillions of enjoyable flight hours and has been the only option available for an improved VC.

    Until now.

    Last week I uploaded my own enhanced VC. I was absolutely delighted when I found out were promoting this as one of their 'files of the day'. A big thank you to staff! This awareness has helped my baby become one of the top 100 downloaded files over the last year within the space of a week.

    If you like driving the FSX default 737-800 around (with or without alrot's upgraded VC), then you'll love the additional features in my own enhanced VC that I'm calling the Defaultimate 737 (search for in the file library).

    New features include:

    • Enhanced cabin lighting including a dome white switch with dim and bright settings and reworked night textures
    • Panel lights can now be used any time of the day making dawn and dusk transitions even more fun
    • Switchable and dimmable display units (PFDs, MFDs)
    • Engine starter switches now include FLT & CONT settings
    • Working Autobrake switch
    • Functional Cross Feed switch
    • Functional Fuel Pumps
    • Majority of switches are animated
    • Taxi and Landing light ground splashes are now decoupled
    • Lots of bug fixes
    • And many more features!

    One of my beta testers has taken a couple of awesome screenies below. If you like what you see, head over to the file library and get downloading!

    Note how the panel lights are on during the day? A gloomy day to be sure. Also note the wiper animation and the missing control columns? The visibility of the control columns can be toggled in order to easily access the functional display unit brightness knobs.

    Note that it is now possible to have the taxi light on only.

    I have downloaded the upgrade and everything is working except for the wiper animation. Is there a switch that turns them on?

    You'll find the wiper switches (x2) on the overhead panel, just above the engine starter switches. See picture below.

    They're multi stage switches. Right click to increase the speed of the wipers, left click to slow down and return to off.

    Thank you for the speedy reply and showing me the switch locations. I was looking in all the wrong places.

    In our file library here.

    Thank you for the clarification! For some reason I found myself searching it up within the forum site and not in the file library. I've found it now and will enjoy the upgrade tomorrow!

    I attempted to download this file but it isn't there an alternative way to get this file?
