  1. No. Also, this project is dead. Check the LevelUp project that goes in a similar direction. But I can already tell you now no one is going to make anything compatible with Xplane 10 anymore, sorry.
  2. Ah, sorry, I misunderstood. You're right, 738wings.dds is the wing texture file (diffuse colour), and there is no paint-kit for it. You would have to edit one of the wing variants that come with the liveries I made or that other painters provided. You can use mine as you see fit, other painters you'd have to ask of course. I have my own paint-kits for the wings for internal use, but I never got to turn those into paint-kits that are streamlined enough for public use. I don't have the time to do this anymore, so I suggest taking the existing ones and tweaking them to your pleasure. However, PBR has a lot of effect on these flat, bright surfaces. So sometimes you changes in the diffuse texture may not have the desired effect in all rendering situations in the sometimes quirky renderer of X-Plane. You can also try different PBR types I made for different liveries (738wings_NML).
  3. Hi! You'll find those in the general 737NG Paintkits Zip file (the file that used to be the same across all 737s). The PSD you need is the AXP 737NG PAINTKIT - WINGLETS SATCOMS TAIL ETC.PSD. However, be warned that only the original Zibo 737-800(X) will work with those paintkits anymore. LevelUp / threshold has decided to scratch most of my previous work in their new releases, so my paintkits won't work for those planes when they are published.
  4. There are 15 sets if I remember correctly. If you step through then you will hear them announced. I can’t comment on current Zino versions as I’m not working on it any longer and have little to no time to do virtual flights, sorry!
  5. Hello, everyone! I hope you're all doing fine and are well in these special times. I just wanted to say "hello" to everyone and also clarify a few things. What is audiobirdxp doing right now? Due to the radical changes COVID-19 has brought, my job has become increasingly time consuming and demanding. In a way it's a blessing, considering having a good (or any) job at all at the moment is not a given. That and the trouble surrounding the blatant theft of intellectual property surrounding the old "Ultimate" project and - more seriously - from the 737-800X I had to give up all the non-essential and sadly free work for X-Plane. I've finished all projects I was tasked except one that is still in development. By the way, if you are interested, you can hear my work in the excellent Leading Edge Simulation's C23 Sundowner and also Magknight's 787 (not sure how far in development the 787 is by now, but the sounds include in-depth representations of both Trent 1000 and GENx engines!). What is up with the 737 ripoffs available on certain facebook groups and other sites? While we are at it, some time ago I lost the will to fight against the person who ripped of my and Zibo's and others' work for the 737 series. If I find time, I may post the unspeakable mails this person has sent my way, it makes for a very entertaining and also worrying read. That said, I'd like to clarify again that neither Zibo nor me as main content creators the 737 nor anyone else involved with development has ever, even in the slightest way, agreed to the rip-off of our work. To the contrary, very early on we tried to argue reasonably with the person responsible but it was and is utterly futile. The only reason I write about this is that I've been sent a statement by him in which he basically declares all his infringments and total ignorance of copyright etc. by claiming that we (Zibo, me, ....) had never disagreed to him using our stuff and by crediting the original creators (which is completely irrelevant and beside the point). Just to make this clear: The very opposite is true, we very clearly denied the use of anything we created, several times, on several media.His doings are one of the main reasons development of the 737-900 and -700 went into total hiatus. What about the 737s and other free projects? I can only tell you that I stopped working on any of the 737s or the free Embraer packs months ago (as published). I appreciate you guys sending mails and messages my way asking for advice or requesting liveries etc. - but I don't do anything besides finishing commercial projects anymore! Please direct your questions towards the mods or Zibo or other people in the know and you will receive relevant answers. What about commercial projects? I finish running projects (see above) and I can also take on new commercial projects depending on the aircraft. If you are interested, shoot me an e-mail, but please understand that I cannot take on free projects for sheer lack of time. Every project I take eats up time (very much in fact) that I work in my real bread-and-butter job and at this time it would be irresponsible especially towards my family to cut down on my actual job for labour of love like the 737. That said, I again want to thank everyone who sends a nice message once in a while or even a donation after all this time! You are great people and I hope you all get safely through whatever the future holds for us! Cheers, audiobirdxp

  7. Hi all, I have stopped working on any 737 project several months ago. I appreciate the input but I won’t change anything beyond the current state.
  8. Hello, all! I just want to say that although I have stopped working on 700 and 900 (and consequently Zibo for the time being), the projects have been inherited by what I believe very capable people. The planes are not abandoned. At this point in time, I can't say more, but you will all be properly informed by the people responsible once the time is right. Happy Flying!
  9. Hello folks, although not active in development of either the 800/700/900, I get frequent mails asking for permission to use parts of the liveries (all the stock ones that come with the 700, 800 and 900 and the downloadable ones). I just want to clarify that you can use anything in the paintkits and any part of any liveries for your 737NG livery projects. Just not for commerical purposes and a credit would be nice. Other than that please feel free to use as you see fit!
  10. No need to edit NML files or textures. These are 3D errors (not I'm not actively involved with development anymore).
  11. You will need the 737NG paint-kit for all liveries (contains paintkits for shared features like engines, tail, winglets etc.) You will need the 737-800X paintkit to paint the fuselage of the 800. You will need the 737-900X paintkit to paint the fuselage of the 900 (two paintkits because texture is containted in 2 different files). Paintkit downloads can be found here:
  12. Version 1.0.0

    3,669 downloads

    73NG SERIES PAINTKITS (currently for 737-800X and 737-900, 737-700 will follow)
