Magknight’s 787 for XPL Updated to v1.7.22

If you’re on X-Plane and own the Magknight 787, you’ll be pleased to hear that a brand new version for the Dreamliner is now available. Version 1.7.22 brings a wealth of new updates, along with bug fixes and improved features.

Version 1.7.21 was the update that came with the vast majority of the new features and changes, but version 1.7.22 fixed a few minor issues that escaped the big update. Some of these changes were mentioned in our previous post.

In terms of new features, the Magknight 787 update saw new ND range rings added, all-new CDU and navigation display graphics, along with MFD popup screens. Furthermore, the CDU NAV RAD page has been added, as well as SharedFlight support.

In terms of changes, the cockpit textures are now brights, whilst window pillars were redesigned to be accurate. In addition, the CDU time is now ‘real’ Zulu time, whilst fixes to the EFB and overhead panel will make the experience much better overall. The full changelog is quite extensive and covers a range of changes and improvements.

The Magknight 787 can be purchased from the X-Plane.org Store for $44.95 USD.
