Title: 727 mods and tweaks
Post by corkyo4 on Oct 25th, 2011 at 1:00pm
Afternoon All,

I have been reading in other forums that there are available several modifications that can enhance the already excellent 727. Am i right in thinking this?

In particular im sure i have read a reference to improved flight dynamics??

Well anyway it was suggested that the CS forum was the place to start, ive had a scout round and cant find anything.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks

Good point CoolP.

I should have included them because of the help they can provide.

No problem, Mark. Here's the collection then. Should we add some more links? Please comment!

Mods, can you make this thread sticky? It should list all current 727 mods and tweaks, so it helps new users.

Please post questions and praises in the corresponding threads to keep this one short and useful for new users. :)

Civa INS integration.
Get the INS mod if you like that cryptic gauge and want to advance from the VOR to VOR usage or the too simple GPS ways.

Read and post here. http://www.captainsim.org/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1286031420
That thread also has a reference to the initial mod by Cthulhus, so there are two variants available.


Sound fix (with the 707 gauge).
http://www.captainsim.org/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1264321545/84#84

Sound and avionics fix with the config tweaks, so no 707 gauge needed.
http://www.captainsim.org/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1264321545/52#52
and
http://www.captainsim.org/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1315183931/1#1

The sound fix (which isn't a fix per se, more of a workaround) can happen in two ways. The first one uses the 707 sound gauge, the second one adds things to the default 727 config files. Both things work around the missing cockpit sounds on the first initialization of the plane.


AP tuning with some NAV/GPS button.
The extra NAV/GPS button on the AP is for the folks looking for a way to use the default FSX GPS with the AP.

Package with some gauge mods by Matt Smith. Download link has to be added. Besides, please check if they are still needed in 2.4. Details are in this thread.
http://www.captainsim.org/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1261409734/0


DME gauge switching, like on the 707.
It's neat when you want to have DME1 und 2 together.
http://www.captainsim.org/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1287210019/56#56


Pressurization fix (beta) by Dutch.
If you are spoiled by the wonky default system in the 727.

Flight model mod by Michael2 for -200 and -100
I tip if you want to fly the numbers and use the free docs coming with the mod or being available at Avsim.
http://www.captainsim.org/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1296889437
Note. The -100 mod is somewhere inside the thread for the -200 thingy, so please read.


V-One Takeoff and Landing Gauge with Sounds by fsxpaul
This one is for the -100.

Sounds like a great idea to me.

Now all we need is for Tanya to make it a sticky topic. ;)

Does the tweaks improve the power of the engines? I ran out of space at EGTE :(

I also needed 3/4 throttle to taxi. ::)

Title: Re: 727 mods and tweaks
Post by Sirxamoc on Jun 12th, 2014 at 9:09pm
::) 3/4 throttle normally means if you did not change your config file:
a.  You are dragging your rear stair door and the APU cart behind you
b.  You added an extra 0 in your weight total somehow.
c.  The parking brake is on.
d.  Finally, my favorite, if you find that you are having to add way too much power just to taxi - See if your landing gear is up!

Seriously, barring any of the above I cannot think of any reason for your power to have to be so high to taxi.

Are these mods still required for v2.7?
