It's been more than a year since my last update. A lot has happened in the meantime. At that time I decided to remodel the plane. The development of the aircraft and my knowledge became more successful every day. Of course there were also setbacks, but now the time has come. I would like to release the Antonov An-225 Update 2.0. There is a short video (many thanks to Bompi) for this.
In the game I kept the liveries Ukraine and Russia separate. Since the aircraft is not yet final it is still on WIP status (work-in-progress)
Please remove the old AN225 mod from me before installing.
I wish you a lot of fun with the Antonov An-225,
The Antonov An-225 "Mriya" (= dream) is a 6-jet cargo aircraft developed in the former Soviet Union and the largest and heaviest aircraft in use in the world, only 1 of which was completed and put into operation. It has the largest approved take-off mass of all aircraft built to date and has 6 engines and 28 wheels on the main landing gear.
Dear FS2020 community,
Since I am so enthusiastic about this simulation and the Antonov, I started modding the aircraft gradually to FS2020 about 2 months ago. This is my first big attempt at modding. I am not a professional modder. I only do this as a hobby.
The Antonov An-225 has been converted from FSX. The mod version is consciously V0.5 because it is still beta version.
The Boing 747-8 serves as the base and cockpit. Since FS2020 only supports 4 engines, only 4 engines will work. But all of them work optically.
I would like to thank the actual developer of the mod for FSX, the dear Douglas E. Trapp, for the release. I would also like to express my sincere thanks to Thomas Ruth and William Luxton who modeled, painted and packed the antonov back then.
1) Extract the Antonov AN225.zip
2) Drag the AN225 folder into your Community Folder
3) Have fun

I can't turn the engines on. All 4 get stuck at 1%
better than inibuilds
Lokscher87 12 day(s) ago
Definitely not, Inibuilds An225 is great!
Я скачал папку, разархивировал ее в C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator\Packages\Community, зашел в игру со стима, зашел в список самолетов и не увидел там нового самолета, кто-то может помочь с этим, может нужно выключить синхронизацию онлайн или еще что-то?
I downloaded the folder, unzipped it to C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator\Packages\Community, entered the game from steam, went to the aircraft list and did not see a new aircraft there, can someone help with this , maybe I need to turn off online synchronization or something else?
Нашел решение проблемы - оказывается моя папка комьюнити находится в другом месте(D:Games/Comminity). Проверить где она находится помогло это видео - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E64IOXyS-XQ&t=64s&ab_channel=KipontheGroundI found a solution to the problem - it turns out that my community folder is in a different place (D:Games/Comminity). Check out where she is helped this video
Outwardly similar to Mriya. But the cockpit is a Boeing 748
LuckyBall14 10 day(s) ago
It's a freeware mate, you shouldn't expect a fully modelled cockpit. If your that bothered go and buy Inibuilds
You mention that the model is taken from FSX, and since you uploaded it with perms to even do so do you think it would be possible to upload one that has the original FSX cockpit? I know it would mean the cockpit won't be functional, but at least we would have a real AN-225 cockpit and we could use Ctrl+E. Anyway, thanks for uploading this mod!
Will there ever be a custom cockpit for the AN225? Great addon. 😊
This is Absolute Masterpiece, but i have minor issue. The Wing light Red and Green is not synced on the tip of the wings instead it's few meters away from the tip. Also the Logo light at the back end wing is only left side turned on. And lastly the nose landing gear light and turn light is not synced. Does any other have encounter this? Nontheless this is still 5 Star for me!
Fahri_Ozturk 1 month(s) ago
Can you please remove all AN225 folders from your community folder and download and paste the current version 2.0 again?
If the problem persists, please turn off all the lights once with the L button and then turn them on again.
If you still have the problem, please PM me with a screenshot of the red and green wing lights.
Thanks very much

Please Download this Tool "Toolbar Pushback by AmbitiousPilots" from here https://de.flightsim.to/file/15033/toolbar-pushback
beatiful outside model but cockpit is painted like fake russian plane so this is why a have removed half of a star. minus one star is becose of 747 in the interior.
But as freeware addon this is one of the best of those 😊
The "Russia" livery technically is not "Russian". It carried a USSR (CCCP) livery when it carried the Buran Space Shuttle. Russia was just one of the republics in the USSR with Ukraine being another. So the aircraft was never "Russian". Not a political comment but a geographical comment.
aspec7878 9 day(s) ago
Russia did not exist when the USSR was. And there was no such republic as Russia. Why are you writing nonsense?
AN-225 built by the USSR. it was built by both Russians and Ukrainians, as well as Buryats and more than 190 nationalities. Learn history.

aspec7878 member since 2021, no uiploads, no downloads and only this one comment! Russia existed as Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic a member of the Union of Soviet Socialist republics. I suggest that he reads his history. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republics_of_the_Soviet_Union. Again I stress this is not a political comment but a statement of geographic demographics.
Mriya with a Boeing cabin?! Are you serious?!)))
Gayaviator 1 month(s) ago
It's free, if you got what you paid for you'd be sitting there with no Mriya. It's not easy to make a custom cockpit and the Boeing works just fine, wait for the iniBuilds one if you want a good model.
Very nice update. Textures are 1000x better. It looks super good and it flies better than it used to, all without a sim performance hit
It's very nice, the skin looks great. Only issue I have is the cockpit. The ECAS is not correct. From the images, I only see 4 engines and what looks like a BOEING auto pilot.
I am looking forward to the release of iniBuild to see how it fairs out.
I mean, what is a sim for, we would like closest to authencity in looks as well as handlling.
Besides, $20.00 today is nothing.

Don't be ungrateful Load
Its free and besides Inbuilds is a major company and the A310 was not all that.
Loadmaster1 2 month(s) ago
It's not a question of being ungrateful.
I am grateful to all the developers that have strived to put out mods to greater enhance our experiences and pleasure in MSFS.
I mean, yes, there has been a lot of effort put into the developement of this mod and it does look fantastic. (from a gaming point of view)
The only drawback is the cockpit instrumentation.
Using a 747 cockpit kind of misses out on the authenticity and the learning experience of the real thing.

I tried this jet out early this morning. I only had one problem with it, but for me it's rather important. Using my Logitech Flight Throttle Quadrant, I could not get the power to reduce. It was locked in on 100% FULL Power...
Fahri_Ozturk 2 month(s) ago
Have you turned off Auto Throttle? A/T Off

I have the same yoke all you have to do is press Shift + R on your keyboard (Disables Auto Throttle
CaptJohnCoPPickles 1 month(s) ago
Thank-you to both of you & your suggestions. It works now = AWESOME!!! 😀
One thing, it's all good but in the cockpit when it's daytime if you look down on the cockpit it's like the light rays get into the cockpit from wird angles, it's like the cockpit wasn't even there...
BigCow74 2 month(s) ago
I noticed the same thing flying late afternoon with the sun shining from above and behind, the switches and controls from the overhead cast a shadow on the cockpit, but the sun shines in everywhere else. It would seem there is some portion of the cockpit model or feature missing that would otherwise be blocking the light.
Santy 1 month(s) ago
yeah, hope he fix it 😊
Just saying Microsoft is putting out a version of this in the next upgrade.... for those who didnt know.

Animeprobefan 2 month(s) ago
we all know its just this one has been out for over a year and half but the ini builds will be professional for sure
freddielaker2 2 month(s) ago
I have been flying it since it came out. Ive even sat in front of the real thing in an A320 at Manchester. But I thought that the one from MS was free.
Trevo 1 month(s) ago
Microsoft not bringing out a free one !!! Inibuilds are releasing one for $20 with proceeds going to Ukraine
freddielaker2 1 month(s) ago
Lets see what its like then, this one is ok for now.
thanks for the update! to update do i have to find the old file in my community folder and delete it before re inatalling or do i just download the newest file? thanks for the awesome plane!
Fahri_Ozturk 2 month(s) ago
Pls delete completly the old files
Download and install this excellent plane following your instructions. I saw that in the content there are both the Soviet and the Ukrainian textures but only the Soviet one is shown. Is there any instruction
additional to see the UKRAINIAN since it was this one that was destroyed in the hangar.
Fahri_Ozturk 2 month(s) ago
You can select the plane separately in the game. So as a different plane. Not with livery selection
Tarval 2 month(s) ago
I already found it. Thank you for your attention and forgive my old age.
