      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.

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?

Hello! Without a painkit, It is very VERY difficult to do that blue1 livery! A forum user requested a MD90 Blue1 livery on the 717

Fabio did that one, maybe he can do Star Alliance, but not the regular Blue1 717 livery

Please, try to (really, Try to, if you can resist, post the image lol) avoid using images from PlaneSpotters and JetPhotos due to copyright

You can search the images using Google 

Cheers!

Sorry, the Delta belly is unlikely, the underneath will be spread across way too many texture components, and it would hardly be worth the effort.

I don't have the original final source files either, so it would be painting on top of the existing Delta textures, and that's something anyone could try their hand at, you included!

Just as a note to everyone, all of these paints will break at differing degrees from slightly to heavily depending on the livery in our external update. They will need to be maintained by the respective creator.

Thanks for the update. 

Sorry folks, paints are on hold until the external fuselage update is released.

Note: Continuation thereafter is not gauranteed

That's because you haven't release Painkit yet?

And The reason why WING/NACL light doesn't work yet?

We don't have full reference for the WING/NACL light, so that's on hold, but will likely be an v4 only addition. The paint kit is part of the external update.

Sir, I don't have the programs required to paint nor do I have the money for it. Otherwise, I probably would have made an attempt at it by now.

Hi Noah,

Nor I, I use freeware Paint.Net, and very, very freeware skills, LOL!

Hey guys, just wanted to ask if anybody knew the font of the name near the cockpit used by Hawaiian on their 717's as well as the registration number at the rear of the tail?

I am trying to recreate their whole fleet :),

Also, if anybody would feel up to the task, could you please, please, pretty please do this one, think it has been already asked once? :)

Hawaiian NC

To put out something that's been requested repeatedly before V4 was ever launched, then promising that the lights will come out soon but then recently say only V4 users will get an update like the nacelle lights is not right in my opinion. To leave out an entire platform, like FSX users, will lead me to hope you guys will rethink that. Otherwise you're just shafting the folks who paid the same for a model that isn't getting fixed to a model that is.

The fonts I used aren't identical, but they seemed fairly close. Codex LT for the name on the nose, and Microsoft Sans Serif for the tail.

Did you create the current HAL livery we have?

Congratulations!! It is beautiful

and, Can you guys create the HAL NC livery?

Yes, I did our official Hawaiian and Qantas liveries (Delta was done by the original artist years ago). Thanks, glad you like it! :)

I plan to do the new Hawaiian livery after I'm done with the exterior update. I also plan to improve the Delta one and offer an official Volotea and Turkmenistan livery as well. Later on, I want to do some of the historical liveries (Midwest and AirTran to name a few).

I was giving estimates at one point, but it's very difficult to provide accurate time frames for something like this, so I try to avoid it. Shouldn't be too much longer, though.

Air Canada...

 

Any chance someone could do one of these. Air Canada operated the DC9 for a lot of years.

Thank you.
