Thread: Q re adding textures to TDS 737-700 base

  1. Default Q re adding textures to TDS 737-700 base

    Downloaded SAS NC (boeing_737-76n_sas_se-rjx.zip) to add to the TDS 737-700 and it says it calls for a model called B--W2.

    Problem is, my TDS 737-700 doesn't have a model called B--W2

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks in advance.

    Readme says it's for the TDS 737-700ng only. That is probably why it needs the B--W2 model.

    You can get latest models from TDS on Facebook. These downloads should have all the variants of each model including the B--W2 your looking for.

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/TDS.....B737NG/files/

    You must log in to Facebook, and can get models from TDS WITHOUT joining the group.

    These updated models also address issues with lights etc.

    And, the good news Neil, you didn't do anything wrong, it's just the texture/repaint is playing "hard to get!"

    From what dogdish (Hi Jack) is saying, it doesn't sound like you will have a hard time finding the model you need!

    Good luck! Rick

    Is a 737-700 not an NG?

    Perhaps not in TDS land. I just downloaded tdsx737-700_base.zip and naively assumed that included every variant of 700 - no?

    Thanks for the links to the Facebook Group but how do I know which of the many files listed there is the one I need?

    Thanks again.

    Here's mine...I have version IG30. Looks like they have a IG30B now. Be sure to get one for FSX not FS2004 and not the 737 MAX7

    This should work > FSX_TDS737-700_W_MDL_SET_IG30B.ZIP

    "W" is Winglet models.

    Be sure your aircraft.cfg shows the model=B--W2

    Cool

    Neil - Are you sure when you say "it says it calls for a model called B--W2?"

    I downloaded, I believe the same base as you did, tdsx7737-700_base.zip and when looking at the
    aircraft.cfg, it shows a title and within it, it shows 737_CFM56-7B--W2. I am looking at this title and I see the B--W2. The "B" is the tail end of the engine, and the W2 is the model.

    title=FREEWARE_(C)_TDS_16AUG2013_737_CFM56-7B--W2_+A7000_+D00_+B0_BASETEXTURES

    Now, when you look at listings (9) for the models, you see........................

    Look again at what the add-on is telling you. I am thinking you have the correct base file. It is for FSX, but in order to merge the 2, the models have to be the same! Check the add-on info for the texture add-on and see what the model says for that! That might tell you if it matches one of the models I have in my pic (sorry, the quality isn't too good and when you click on it, it will rotate 90* !!
    I'm going to have to find out how Jack screen prints. Looks so much clearer. I did mine taking a photo with my cell phone! Sometimes, it works very well. Tonite it didn't!

    Now, I will admit, Jack (dogdish) is showing a Model=B--W2 but I have no idea where you would find a Model B base unit, unless, in his case the "B" may stand for Base? Stranger things have happened?

    Keep us posted, now you have me curious!

    Never mind, yep, it does say model=B--W2 !! This is new for me as I don't have any TDS Sounds a little bizarre when you can find the base aircraft and it doesn't provide you any B--W2 choice!

    Well, we tried! Good luck Neil and I'll keep watching to see how you make out!

    Rick,

    You need base and model files then you can add liveries AKA repaints. TDS is quite confusing at first since you have to "build it from scratch"

    Also to post image...

    Press the "Print Screen" key on your keyboard. This copies your screen image to the clipboard memory. Go to Windows Paint and click Paste. Then you can save the file as a .jpg to post.
