No plans from me at this time -- sorry. Preoccupied with Airbus, will continue with bugfixes, however.

Kind Regards,

Coincidentially, I also had started working on the 737NG subsystems on my own a few days ago. With learning Nasal as the whole purpose of it, I started writing the electrical system from scratch based on actual documentation. So far, I had implemented an accurate battery discharge model and some prototypes which would connect the different electrical bus nodes depending on batteries/generators output voltage.
Sincerely, I didn't know you guys were already working on it, so it's kinda pointless to repeat the same work. Actually, if you need a helping hand with this, please tell me - I would love to contribute to this great aircraft. :)

This is just the 800 series, not the entire Next Generation family (the 600, 700, 800, and 900 series).

The electrical I put in was very basic, temporary thing, feel free to replace it with your own, but probably some other modification needed to make it work in the existing systems.

Kind Regards,

Do you have a link to the repository you are using for the 737-800?

If you specify your question a bit more (i.e. *what* specific you are searching) one might be able to help more.
Generally, "everything" you'll need is in the cockpit, system switches are mostly located on the overhead panel, while not being as well structured as in the A320 (blame Boeing :D), what you'll also need are the engine cutoffs at the pedestal panel

Sorry for that,i was in a hurry and didn't even notice that I forgot to mention what to start...

After some search around the YT,I was able to find out how to start the engines,which was the problem.... :oops:

Thanks.

How to set an AP for the ILS landing? I'm asking this cause I had to manually land ,despite using the ILS and GS to land. Frequencies and course,QNH...everything set. And the plane was flying to it's own way. So,i'm asking again,how to set it up for the ILS ILS landing?

FSX may not be fully realistic,but at least everything works. :(

Hi @berkut,
Please stop this negative attitude whenever something goes wrong. Its a bit not nice.

The ILS works fine, just use the LOC and APPR buttons on the AP, and FD or AP will be armed, then capture.

Kind Regards,
Josh
