    Great Job Nic,

    Doesn't seem so long ago when you were messing with bits of Dexion to make the shell - it looks like a different beast today!

    Thanks guys.

    Yeah Trevor ... think I'll get the camera lady a new camera too!

    Bob - the FS sound package is by Steven Persson and is called cfm56-7v4.zip (now patched to v5). You can find it on AVSIM. It's the best there is I reckon. One thing I will change in it though is the turbine growl which is too prominent - especially at altitiude where it should be almost non-existent.

    I've got that running through the main sound system, and also the following sounds running off 3 other flightdeck PCs into 3 sets of simple stereo speakers:
    • GPWS/TCAS - PC4 (PM sounds) into stereo speakers
    • Enviro sounds (bump, wind, roll etc.) - PC3 (PM sounds) into stereo speakers (will be subwoofer later)
    • Squawkbox ATC - PC5 into stereo speakers
    I've disabled the corresponing enviro sounds in the main sound system in FS (e.g. roll sound) so as not to double up.

    Hey NicD, you created more questions with your answers.

    1) GPWS/TCAS - PC4 (PM sounds) into stereo speakers

    A) So this is with PM Sounds?

    2) Enviro sounds (bump, wind, roll etc.) - PC3 (PM sounds) into stereo speakers (will be subwoofer later)

    B) Is this just PMSounds?

    What are you using for a flight model.

    Yes - in answer to A and B - they are both just PM sounds. I've customised both sound sets so they only play what I want - i.e. removed unwanted WAVs and replaced some WAVs with better sounds.

    Note - the 3 PCs are also being used for other things in the pit e.g. PC3 is the FO side PFD/ND & CDU. Doesn't present any performance problems on those PCs thankfully.

    Using PMDG flight model (only).

    Thanks for your replies NicD... Now we all know what I will be doing tomorrow. If you think about it sometime could you get me a list of the sound files you replaced? I am going to start work tomorrow on all this..
