Hi all!

Today I have another annoucement, I'm working on the 737 (again I have to thanks Sabre[dust] for the porting and to have shared it with me).

This work started mainly becouse I need a presidential and cargo/tanker plane for my faction mod, but I think it's better to make it a separate addon so It will be more usable.

 

For now I've done some texture impovement, reworked the cockpit, and some othe little improvements.

I will have also some alarms, for now I have fully integrated the "Terrain, terrain, Pull up!" (it starts al less than 350m if the landing gear is not down) and the "Sink rate, pull up" (it starts if you descend too fast while you are between 2000 and 360m, after the 360 it stops to let the Terrai alarm start). I will try to get also the countdown while landing (1000, 500, 400 ...).

I will also try to get some fuction internal lights for the cockpit and the cabin.

Probably in the future  I will work on the tanker/AEW/ASW version too.

 

The plane model looks similar to a 737-500 but with winglets, so I will call it 737-500Plus (becouse the 737-500 doesn't have winglets, and it have a more old style cockpit).

 

The plane is quite hard to land, becouse it will get easily damaged. So I've added a script that reapairs the little damages that you can get during a normal landing, but if you touch hard the ground it will still take hard damages and the script will not repair it!

 

Features:

-textures improvements

-cockpit rework

-internal lights

-Alarms

-maybe some works on the variants too (ASW,AEW,Tanker,737-100)

Hi Pinaz, nice idea to make that. It will be very useful. However you plan to re-do the interiors with less seats and more "presidential plane" stuffs? Do you plan to do a static version with walkable interiors? Nice idea however. It will be good to see some skins like this one:

Thanks for reply :) Good to hear about static version. If I'm not wrong however there is a static version of a plane for anti/terror mission (like Rainbow Six) in ArmA 2 (on armaholic site). U can take ideas from this. Best wishes for that, another good, mod from you! :) :)

Added the refuel pods under the wings for the KC-737 (inspired by the kc-767 and the A330 MRTT), it use the kc-130 script (for the refuel drogues) plus the kc-737 script (for the refuel boom), it can refuel all kind of planes now!

Looking very much forward to this. A little regional plane like the 737 fits perfectly into Arma 3. I wonder if the radar display can be done in a PIP fashion with a longer display range and put onto a proper seat; 16km even for arma 3 is way to short for AEW&C

I have to see if is possible to do it PIP style, however for now It Will have the same script as my other AEW planes:

 

-4 selectable ranges (5km, 25km, 50km and 100km, maybe I Will make the bigger ranges less accurate)

 

-It can see only planes above 120m and 130km/h

 

-All info are on the map and are shared with other plane on your side

 

-You can see altitude, Speed, direction and the name of the contacts

 

-It can also track fired missiles

 

This is an example (the pic is from an old WIP and It was missing the altitude)

Do you also consider making a static variant to play hijacks and stuff? :)

 

Read the thread m8, it was already asked :f: . And the good Pinaz already answer.

Was wondering if there will be a regular cargo USAF version of this?

 

A non-tanker version? yeah probably yes

 

 

However the new sensor update is going on:

Hi all, I'm really sorry but at the moment I'm really busy in real life... I changed work (I'm going to start working in a 737-800 in few weeks ), so I don't know If I will work on arma mods anymore, because I will be outside of my home country without my desktop PC. Maybe in the future I will move my PC to my new accommodation and I will be back here

Today I'm testing the refuelling with various aircrafts, The Kc737 is compatible with most aircrafts mods:

 

Firewill's F/A-18F (but also the F-14, AV-8B, etc)

TeTeT's F/A-18E/F and SU-35

My planes (here the SU-34): su-34, mig-29, eurofighter typhoon, panavia tornado, E-130

I'm working on a fix to get it working with firewill's F-16/F-15, etc., at the moment it is refuelling them but with the drogue instead of the probe.

Also I'm still testing the other versions of the plane:

 

Here a german E-7 escorted by a USAF F-16C.

And at the end some more pics of the passengers version, seems that someone important is in town today!

Would that be possible to add some dirt and wear to the textures? Right now, it looks kind of flat, like a plastic toy.

Yes I will publish also the texture template so if you wish to modify them you will be able to do it 😁
