7th Oct Update <<<

Hello everyone, I'm back. This airplane tooks me hundreds of hours.And I remade the nose and fuselage after 1.10beta release. The smooth effect even exceeded my expectations. I hope you like it.

Thanks @FinnAurora for screenshots and picture processing.

Thanks @Franklinclinton @QinSheng @HTPE @Pita @Kenneth_ @FiguredFC for testing.

Mobile Friendly:

Mobile Friendly (1379parts)


Other Liveries:

high-smoothness material

black-white material


Controls:

HUD -------------------------- Activate1.
Reverse Thrust Enabld. -------- Brake(Must Activate7 and on ground).
Spoiler ------------------------- Brake.

Flaps(UP) ---------------------- VTOL 0
Flaps(1°). ---------------------- VTOL 0 >> -0.2
Flaps(5°). ---------------------- VTOL -0.2 >> -0.4
Flaps(15°). --------------------- VTOL -0.4 >> -0.6
Flaps(20°). --------------------- VTOL -0.6 >> -0.8
Flaps(25°). --------------------- VTOL -0.8 >> -1
Flaps(30°). --------------------- VTOL -1

Trim(Continuous) ------------ Trim.
(Trim slider should be slided to center after trimming to right position.)


Notes:

  1. Total 315,000lbs.(255,000 lbs EmptyWeight and 60,000lbs payload). Don't add too much payload, which will cause landing gear shaking.(Improved in update.)
    2.Deviation occurs during takeoff because of the sliding of the wheels.(Ameliorated in update but still exist.)
    3.Fuselage connection smooth of v1.10 can't use on flexable wing. It looks weird when use high smoothness material.
    4.I only made 6 flaps postions. Actually 787-9 has 3 more flaps positions than 787-8.(10°,17°,18°).
    5.Please run with medium or high physics setting.

    I made an account just to comment on this. This is a really good recreation. It's a bit nostalgic to play around with something like this in Simple Planes knowing that some one built it piece by piece. I used to work with these things, from -8s to the -10s. It's damn accurate. The V-stab dimensions, the cockpit, the wing flex during flight - amazing work.

    There's a few tiny TINY nit picks and one is that the wings don't seem to flex to the full 26ft during max load. I'm guessing that's just the game's fault; probably limitations that's hard to over come in that regard. The other is the lack of spinners on the engine High Bypass Fans. Not sure if that was an oversight or something; but I would love to see those. Lastly, and I don't see how it'd be done without adding way more parts - Not sure if these are Trent 1000 motors or the GEnx's but the High Bypass Fan blades themselves have an awesome aerodynamic design with their curves which here do not seem to be present; they're straight.

    Due to the game limitations; I'd say the only thing I'd love to see is the Spinner cones for the HB Fans. Other than that this model is damned perfect in so many ways. The only thing that could make me even more nostalgic is a full walk through interior with the LED / RGB lighting lol.

    This is such awesome work and I hope you get a ton of credit for it. Major kudos man. A 10 out'a 10 from me.

    Holy crap
    I have flown the qualitywings 787 in p3dv5 and this cockpit is nearly perfect.
    Great work on this.

    Looks AMAZING, never seen a better model of the 787 on here. My only complaint is that the trim seems to be something of a death sentence, but other than that it's an Amazing plane.

    @WingworksDesignCo And the wing can't have any mass, otherwise it will shake while rolling.

    @WingworksDesignCo I forgot it. But you can find it on a black hinge-rotator at wing section.

    You don’t need codes for wing flex @WingworksDesignCo, just use inert rotors for each wing section and put wings in each section of your wing so that the wings flex from the lift alone :)

    @REW may i "borrow" the wing flex code? me kinda struggling with wavy wings ;-;

    @SavageMan 机身上8000阻力应该够了。
    主要是sp的机翼阻力有点小。开襟翼或者增大攻角时阻力变化不大。所以着陆的时候不太好减速。
    当时没考虑到这个因素,因为机翼阻力是不算在总阻力里面的。我把机翼阻力改一下吧,看看增加多少合适。

    I apologise for writing so much, but I feel like you should have some empathy for others and do some basic research before blindly criticising someone else’s work that they’ve put a lot of effort into. @QuickNils

    If you actually start changing xml files and try to make your craft look good, you’ll realise the aerodynamics simulated in Simpleplanes is pretty unrealistic, hence the word “simple”. Contrary to what you may believe, not every plane that handles like a mig-21 with afterburner turned on is “realistic”...

    SP这个气动咳咳……我看你阻力点只有8000多,感觉减速都有些难

    @Raptor787 It's difficult to simulate engine startup. So I decided to keep it running.
