Hi....I want to download the 727 from Fly Away Simulation.......but it says it's for FSX.....will this be compatible and run on my MSFS anniversary edition? Thx in advance.
It's great that you're looking to expand your aircraft collection! Now, diving straight into your question: The 727 model from Fly Away Simulation, designed for FSX, won't seamlessly work in the MSFS 2020 Anniversary Edition without some modifications.
Here's why and what you can do:
1. Architecture Differences: MSFS 2020 is built on an entirely different engine compared to FSX. This means aircraft, scenery, and other add-ons aren't directly interchangeable.
2. Graphical and Functional Variations: Aircraft models for FSX may lack the detailed graphics and intricate systems that are standard in MSFS 2020.
3. Conversion Process: Fortunately, there's a silver lining. Converting FSX models to MSFS 2020 is feasible, albeit with some technical know-how. Here's a brief rundown:
4. External Tools: There are several community tools and guides available which can assist in this conversion process, including the MSFS SDK. This software development kit provides extensive documentation and tutorials to guide you.
Remember, conversion can be a lengthy process, especially if it's your first time. It requires a blend of both artistic and technical skills. If you're passionate about flying the 727 in MSFS 2020, it's worth the effort. Alternatively, you might want to wait and see if there's an official release or update for this particular aircraft tailored for MSFS 2020.
Hope this clarifies things for you. If you need more details or run into any hurdles during the conversion, don't hesitate to ask. Happy flying!
