      Proper Problem Reporting for the TFDi Design 717   07/09/2017

      Folks, As the user count is increasing, it is becoming more of a task for us to stay on top of problem reports. We are also receiving an increasing amount of incomplete reports that we are unable to follow up on (which frustrates everyone, us included). On that note, we are going to be enforcing a stricter formal problem reporting system. There are a few main points that need to be addressed. ALL problem reports must be submitted via the Bugs and Suggestions system. Open discussion on the forums is fine, but our team simply cannot respond to every single comment (especially when the majority of doing so is asking for information the Bugs and Suggestions system already asks for). Incomplete reports will be ignored. This means reports like "my FPS is bad" will not be given weight. This isn't because we don't care. It is because a report like that does absolutely nothing for anyone - we can't fix it based on that. Please include EVERYTHING you can possibly think of regarding the problem and take as many steps as you can to isolate it. Prepar3D v4, despite what you have heard, can still be unstable. Yes, it is definitely possible to fly flights without issues. But it is still relatively new, as are most of the addons available for it. Please refrain from attacking us or other developers because of this. We have already had one scenario where a 717 CTD was resolved by an update to Prepar3D itself. This is likely not the only time that will be the case. You are still free to report the crashes, as it may help whoever the developers of the faulting code are solve the issue. Duplicate reports will be deleted/merged. For the sake of sanity for us trying to prioritize and evaluate issues, if we discover multiple reports of the same thing, we may merge/delete the duplicates. We strongly encourage you to search and see if your problem has been reported before. Thank you all in advance. This may seem overbearing, but this is the only way we are going to be able to stay on top and continue heading in the direction we, and the community, want.

Great idea to create this thread, thank you. 

I would like to add that whilst I'm happy to take requests, please remember that I'm no artist, meaning that there exists a limit to my abilities; essentially, I won't make promises.

I'll do what I can in an order and at a pace that I feel comfortable with.

One last thing, do feedback your thoughts and try to post some images of the TFDi 717-200 in action.

Thanks,

Fabio

I'd like to second the request for the American/TWA paint from the first post. No doubt would be challenging with that bare metal, but damn, sure looks nice!

The bare metal finish is way beyond my abilities, sorry. 

I might try the TWA livery, but first I'll do an Italian livery. 

The AirTran might be considered a WIP, but don't hold your breath waiting for it.

Awesome the VA I fly with will greatly appreciate a TWA. No need to rush, take your time, quality over quantity any day. Thanks man!

Could you help me locate a copy of the "gold" coloured globe /world logo that appears on the front fuselage of TWA 717's?

Hi,

That's the exact logo that I was looking for; a larger version would be even better.

Have you the link as well?

Thanks,

Fabio

Actually, on reflection, that logo seems to be missing some detail.

Keep searching, it's gotta to be out there, otherwise I'll have to make it, and that will take longer than seven day & nights!

Any chance you could do the correct Blue1 livery?

The 717's never had that livery that you painted already

If that is too difficult maybe one of the star alliance blue1 liveries?
