The developers behind the Zibo B737-800X have released what can be considered a major update for the popular aircraft.

In today's update meanwhile, new (some temporary) static pages have been added to the FMC, a new electrical system has been implemented, a failures system has been introduced, and also a new refuelling system is in place.
