The famed Zibo Mod 737-800X has seen yet another update today, bringing it up to version 3.40, complete with options for flight load/save and save states for weight settings.

New failures such as flap and speedbrake overspeed are also added this update, complimenting those brought out in September 2019 with 3.34. While that appears to be the extent of the new features in 3.40, previously added systems have been fleshed out.

For example, support for passenger number selection have been improved vastly. You can now be much more precise in passenger loading, for the first time allowing for children and women to be supported. These have the prefixes: "MF" - kids and "M" for women.

Other various fixes and tweaks comprise the majority of the rest of the changelog, such as changes to autoland and system adjustments. The full changelog is available below:

  • improved flight model 4.2 by Twkster
  • add option LOAD/SAVE FLIGHT (thanks to JBrik for new icons)
