      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.

I'm Just LOVING This 717

Since all of the added work and updates that TFDi has put into this 717, it is now the most enjoyable aircraft that I fly on P3Dv4.  Everything works perfectly and the sound is beautiful, not to overlook the beautiful cockpit lighting that no other simulation can match.

I have wanted a 717 simulation for so many years, I even tried to help a developer once, that said he would make one if he could get enough support, but he backed out because he couldn't get enough funding for it.

This TFDi 717 is so far beyond my expectations and I'm loving the experience of flying it so much, that I felt I had to get in this forum and say something.  It's an absolute dream.

Thank you to all who helped make it a reality. :D

Although I am waiting on two addons (and a lot of Aussie ORBX scenery) to be made compatible with v4, I am thoroughly enjoying every aspect of the TFDi 717-200 as well. (Except for the flood lights and scroll wheel... ;)). One of my favourite aircraft to fly along with the PMDG birds (of course, in QF colours) and the mjc q400!

I'll leave you all with the screensaver that I use on my laptop. :<3:

(I'm sorry but a lot of my photos of planes have been taken from my posts on various sights - I have nothing wrong with that.  But when users start taking credit for my photos, that's passed a line for me.  Hence all of the watermarks linking to my AVSIM account.) - If you would like a copy of this photo without all of the invasive watermarks, please PM me and I'll happily provide one a one that is also at a much higher resolution for you.
