Salty Simulations 747-8

The Salty Simulations 747-8 project is an open source modification for the default 747-8. We strive to improve the default aircraft and we hope that it will eventually become a “high-fidelity” simulation of the 747. All the features, briefly explained, can be found in the GitHub readme, and all the features can be found in the changelogs. At the moment we are a growing community of around 3k members.

If you would like to contribute to this project, either with your skills in programming or providing information / research, we are always looking for that!

Hi there,
Please can you advise. I’ve downloaded the Salty Sim 747 mod but am a bit confused on the installation. Looking at instructions it talks of cloning branch master or installing into the addon_folder/addon_files within the community folder. Its all very confusing. Is it just a case of copying the 747 salty simulations folder as found in the zip directly into your community folder??? I successfully managed to install the A320 mod by just copying the unzipped file into the community folder and was assuming that the 747 installation would be the same. Please can you advise and thanks in appreciation. Andy

yup, simply drop it in the community folder. Nowhere in the installation guide does it say to put it in “addons_folder/addon_files” if you’re on the official github.

ok thanks. I did see the addons folder/files etc on some sight, but seeing as you’ve said just drop it into the community folder, that is what I will do. I thank you for a speedy reply. Good day to you.

Hi @SCNinjo, I have a question, is the V0.1.0-rc2 the latest version?

Does it work after the Japan update?

Thanks!

Lots of exciting stuff about to drop on to this project. Work being done on the AP as well as correct fuel flow, predicted altitude green arc on ND, EICAS complete displays, etc. Really good things.

New chnges have been rolled out including:
Added predictive altitude range arc to Navigation Display

  • Shows predicted level off point at MCP altitude in a climb or descent based on current Groundspeed and Vertical Speed.
  • Active in ND MAP or MAP CTR modes when 100 feet above ground.
  • Inhibited when on diverging Flight Path or within 100 feet of selected MCP alt.

The green arc is back!
