    TWA 717-200 RELEASED!

    Thank you for this repaint. Hopefully TFDI does not change the texture layout again when they find a solution for the CTD problem. It´s remarkable silent out there....

    Where in the paintkit is the rear bottom antenna?!

    CTD when changing views

    open a second window (the [ or ] key...cant remember which one), resize it to the smallest you can get it, stick it in a corner and fly! Its not the best but its a valid workaround to the problem.

    CTD when changing views

    It's a known issue, and they say they're working on a fix with LM. I find that zooming WAY in before you switch back to the cockpit eliminates this.

    PILOT VIEW

    I tried uploading a picture of my eyepoint, but an error occurred. The ideal view point would probably be high enough to see outside in line with the glareshield, but not so high to the point of blocking the display units.

    TWA 717-200 RELEASED!

    There is a paintkit to download that a lot of folks have been screaming about the past year and a half. You could try your hand at your own livery? There's also freeware painting programs that are almost as good as Photoshop. I use GIMP 2.10 for example. This might be an option for me as well. Hopefully these guys are just taking a really long sabbatical (Don't really blame them for the constant updating over the past year) and nothing seriously wrong is going on. Btw, nice TWA livery. I was thinking about doing the classic or retro DC-9 paints. Maybe in the future.

    Flighttime

    When parking brake is applied and engines off would be better.

    Start and end keys

    Still waiting for this feature, most frustrating when you pull off runway and wait for ground control to give you directions and acars stops.

    Multicrew (CRM)

    I feel you bro... No simmer seems to care about procedures and checklists these days. I might have some time to spare over the next few days, we might be able to do a few flights. About multi-crew issues...that problem can be seen in real life as well, when flight students transition from their single pilot CPL or PPL phase to the MCC courses.

    Multicrew (CRM)

    Dear pilots, I post this message in order to bring multi-crew in the front line of simulation... in fact, it is sooooo difficult to find people who are interested to do multicrew as real as it gets that I think there is a misunderstood somewhere. First, some people are still confusing Captain (as a pilot) and First Officer (as copilot)... but there is not a pilot and a copilot... there is 2 pilots, one who is Captain. A captain is not flying the aircraft alone, and a First Officer is not assisting captain to fly... role can be reversed, it called PF (Pilot Flying) and PNF (Pilot non-flying). I am sure pro simmer can bring them self to the next level of simulation by learning HOW TO DEAL WITH A CREW... it calls CRM (Crew Ressource Management); briefing, decisions (by the 2 pilots, not 1), tasks, checklist (of course), ATC, cabin... when flying alone, the problem is that I saw so many of simulation guys who know the B737, the B717 or the A320 by heart but they are unable to speak and work with a second pilot. When you are two, you must announce, explain, brief and debrief all that you are doing. For example, ATC calls us "Volotea 25PR climb FL150", as Captain non-flying, I set FL150 in MCP and announce to my First Officer "Flight Level 150 set", he answers "checked". So many things that we can do now we the shared cockpit option and it is sooo sad that nobody cares about it. Please let me know here if anybody is interested in few multicrew legs. Cheers.

    Flaps X Landing Gear - Drag

    I was talking to a friend who flies the 717 for an European airline and he just confirmed something I was suspecting to be wrong, based on my previous experience in similar airplanes. The drag seen when one goes from slats deployed to flaps 18 is MUCH higher than the drag seen when one goes from slats deployed to gear down, perhaps if you exchange the figures it would be satisfactory, since the drag cause by landing gear extension in virtually every jetliner is THE most effective way to add drag to the plane. And the drag caused by the deployment of flaps 40 could possibly be reviewed as well, since it seems to be a little bit exaggerated. Thanks for you support.

    Flickering Caused by Dual GPU

    When is there going to be a fix for having dual GPU's installed and the flickering issue related to RealLight? Is there a workaround for this issue? I get it. RealLight doesn't play well with dual GPU's installed. I don't say SLI, because even when SLI is disabled through nVidia Control Panel, I still experience flickering. Though, it's the entire display that flickers black, and not just the cockpit displays. That tells me that even when SLI is disabled, the aircraft is still useless. I purchased three aircraft utilizing RealLight and all of them are affected by this flaw. Fortunately, a user can disable RealLight in the Maddog X. The MilViz Otter is somewhat playable, but not the 717. TFDi needs to add an option to disable RealLight like in the Maddog X.
