That ain't problems, that is what we call "work in progress". ;)
You will be able to fly a much better 744 in current FlightGear Git/snapshot or the upcoming stable release.

The past days/weeks I've been working on quite some improvements for the Queen. Including a more "realistic" gear failure system that allows simmers to "stuck" each single gear unit.

I did a test flight with the right main gear stuck in the upwards position. Now I know why I practiced landings that much! It's a lot of fun to keep your aircraft balanced on half the gear you normally have :D

Houston, we have a problem!
Image

Here the cabin crew was bussy moving people to the left side of the plane. Children were told to "plank" on the seats (that were occupied by the seat-owners), so their parents could sit on their backs.
Image

The copilot already took place on my lap at this time. Rembers me to childhood, when I was "steering" the car on my dad's lap. But, no time for getting sentimental! We have to land a one-legged aircraft!
Image

Hey, we do save asphalt this way!
Image

Hm, not sure if that's entirely true. If you look at the smoke I'd say we burnt some tires there and scraped of some asphalt...
Image

Seconds before we came to a stop (and tumbled over on our right wing) the cabin crew quickly opened the doors on the right side of the plane. I've never seen an aircraft evacuate that quickly! :D

Funny story and great pics. Amazing job done on the 747. Wish I could produce something good. :roll:
I always have 1 fps when in outside views. I hope that will be a bit fixed in 2.4

Keep up the good work.

YACA! Yet Another Cockpit Attempt :)
This time with a proper level of detail and some better measurements. See the difference between the old (bottom) and new (top) panel! Please note that the top is WIP (screens are plain images) and the bottom is shown without knobs/instruments (so it's not a completely fair comparison).

im eagerly awaiting a version with a working autopilot, which works in plain & simple non-git FG 2.4 setup

just a zip-file I can download, unzip, and fly this thing from EHAM to KJFK or TNCM :)

Not going to happen. Sorry.
Too much changed for 2.6.0 and I'm still moving around the center of gravity to find the right spot. Moving the CG around means the AP has to be adapted etc.

But don't worry, it will be available as a plain zip for 2.6.0 :)

Decided to wait with the new panels, for 2.8.0. I could've pushed it yesterday, but then I would've had a hard time merging it nicely with the current cockpit... So no (extra) nice cockpit in 2.6.0 :(, but the joy will be even bigger with 2.8.0 :)

Then the good news: glareshield and forward/main panel models are finished! Now I "just" need to texture and animate them, but that's the fun part.

Just one more ("complete") picture, to keep myself motivated :)
Already several parts that are not included in PMDG's 744 :roll:

It's been a long road, all the way from this to that ^ and beyond!

Will the a/p finally work for 2.6? There is no point really to make an "even nicer" cockpit, or half-extended undercarriages, if the plane doesn't fly properly. And yes, having no a/p means that the plane doesn't fly properly, for any jet: nobody flies across the atlantic with yoke in hand.

Thats one of the let downs with not only this, but also the Tupolev Tu154b.
