Safety demonstration sounds

I've started working with SASL plugins, and so far, 3d sounds are done, and the plane now also has safety demonstrations, engaged by a button in the flight attendant's control panel. So far, ANA and Ethiopian both have their own announcements.

Ethiopian 787

So the first new 787 package That has been worked on is the Ethiopian Airlines package. This model features a new interior, along with certain details along the exterior that only ethiopian airlines carries.
Main differences inside include:
3-3-3 economy configuration, full economy behind the second doors
no central overhead bins in the business area
a 2-2-2 business class configuration
new galley and lavatory configuration

 ^^ note the lack of OH bins ^^

The design still has some bugs, I'm missing a rearward facing galley behind the business class, the winged logos in business are on backwards, etc etc

787 change of course

So, in my long search for perfection, i've decided to make a significant change to the 787's building process. I shall from now on, be designing the 787 as a one-paint per plane type package, similar to what peter hager has done with his a380s. that way, we'll be able to model accurate interiors for every airline! no worries though, each package will remain freeware, it'll just be a little bit tougher to decide on which paints you want.
just as a quick comparison of three airline cabin concepts, ANA vs Qatar vs Thomson


Ethiopian Interior (lavatories at the back, 3-3-3 configuration, extra washrooms, more economy seats)
 ANA interior, 2-4-2 abreast configuration.

787 Paintkit

So with the new alterations to the 787, i've decided to release a basic paintkit for the 787. it includes all the .psd and base images needed to work on this plane,
some of these images are made up of four smaller ones, general rule, left is left, right is right, as demonstrated in the below paint files.

Full paintkit in the link above.

Galley Progress

So the interior got quite a few re-works, particularly around the galley, and we also worked on adding new transparent windows into the plane
