    Little Suggestion for PACX

    Hello, I'm really excited about the coming PACX addon. It sounds like it will really add to the immersion and be very easy to use. I listened to the welcome announcement and thought it would be great if you could also include the type of aircraft. for instance "Ladies and gentlemen good evening. We welcome you to this Boeing 717, flight number 6155 with service to Atlanta..." or if we're flying a 737-700.. "Ladies and gentlemen good evening. We welcome you to this Boeing 737-700, flight number 6155 with service to Atlanta..." I have listened to cockpit videos and they always seem to include the type of aircraft that is being flown at the time. It would help people to know that they are on the correct flight. I have a friend of mine that goes to Las Vegas every year and it has always been on an MD80. This year he knew several months ahead that he would be on an Airbus A320 since the carrier stopped using the MD80. So the fact that the aircraft type is announced early on would help him to know that he crawled onto the correct flight. It would make PAKX more custom to the aircraft on each flight too. Thank you, Bob

    Liveries requests and reviews here

    I would love to have a fictional American Airlines new design livery for my Boeing 717. I'm sure that it would be a popular download too. I'm willing to pay or donate toward a nice job of it too, if anyone is interested. Thank you, Bob

    AMERICAN 717 LIVERY

    Gosh! This thread was over a year old and still no one has made an American Airlines livery for this 717...unbelievable. 🙄

    Autopilot Goes Nuts

    Hello, I am having big, big problems with the auto flight system on my 717. Flying on Pilotedge, the controller gives me a different destination runway from what I have set in the FMC when I'm in the decent. While descending, I go in the FMC and change the runway (KPDX from rwy 26 to rwy 08) and the autopilot disconnects as soon as I select *INSERT. I reconnect the autopilot and re-select NAV on the MCP. I was in a decent, but now the autopilot wants to climb even though I have a lower altitude in the MCP. I select PROF, but nothing changes so I pull the altitude knob, but I'm still climbing, so I put -1000 in the VS window and my screen turns cream colored while the sim freezes. Then the screen comes back, but the sim is still froze and the hour-glass is rotating.......next I'm looking at my desktop 😝. Goodby Pilotedge. This has happened several times even when flying offline. By the time I get close to the approach, the auto flight system goes wacky and causes the whole sim to crash. I love this 717 and I'm completely addicted to it so this is a very traumatic experience for me. Do I need to uninstall the 717 and re-install it? Please help me. I love this aircraft sim and really need to fly it. 😪 Thank you, Bob

    Autopilot Goes Nuts

    Re-installing the 717, like you said, seems to have fixed my problem. I've done several perfect flights with it since than and also used it for the VatStar event from KATL to KRSW last Sunday and it did beautifully. Couldn't have flown any better. Thank you Joshua. I appreciate your help. Bob

    Thank you Joshua. I'll try that. Maybe it will solve my problem. Bob

    Autopilot Goes Nuts

    It has happened several times with pretty much the same conditions. Always when close to the approach. Always resulting in the sim crashing to the desktop. No indication in the Windows log file. How would I go about completely uninstalling and re-installing with the latest versions?

    Is this paint available?

    Flashlight for P3Dv4?

    I'll check into that. Thank you.

    Flashlight for P3Dv4?

    This may seem silly, but there are times when I start out at night in the cockpit and would love to have a small addon that would be like a cockpit flashlight and could work in conjunction with the mouse. I know that X-Plane comes with one, but it would be great to have one for P3Dv4 also. Does anyone know if there is something like this available? TFDi Design has the best lighting program on the market as part of their 717 upgrade, and is what made me think about it. Thank you, Bob

    Flashlight for P3Dv4?

    I didn't know that. Thank you. The main thing that I wanted was a flashlight that I could use for a cold and dark cockpit at night, like the one that they use in X-Plane. I'm going to check on this though. It would be good for when you are outside of the aircraft. Thank you, Bob
  15. Hello, I just ran the update from within the Addon Manager, which updated the manager itself, along with the aircraft. I got an error when doing the update which is shown below. I did not have any anti-virus running while updating. The Addon Manager did not crash. I just selected "Ok" and it looked like it finished, but I'm not sure if there was a problem. I do not know of any other program that was running while it was updating. Is this something that I need to be concerned about? Thank you, Bob

    It seems to be working fine. Thank you.

    Flight plan folder location?

    ....or just try: C:\Users\Owner\Documents\TFDi Design\717\Company Routes
  18. 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. Bob

    ATS Off But Engines 71 N1

    Hello, This may be something that I'm doing wrong, but after starting the engines, my throttles levers are all the way back and my autothrottle system is off, but the engines are winding out to 72 N1 and I can't bring them back to idle. I am running the latest update. Thank you, Bob

    Gosh. That's something. The aircraft is not flyable as it is. Sure looking forward to that update. I do appreciate your help. Thank you, Bob

    TFDi Design 717: Introducing RealLight

    FSL's Spotlights is not for P3Dv4 and I can see it doesn't look as good. I just brought it up because I didn't know why RealLights didn't have a user interface for other aircraft, but that has been answered. Thank you, Bob

    ATS Off But Engines 71 N1

    I'm finding that if I select the FADEC switches to ALTN, the engine RPM will drop to idle. As soon as I put them back to normal, my engines N1 will go back up to 72. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Never had this problem before. Thank you, Bob

    TFDi Design 717: Introducing RealLight

    Oh, ok. I was wondering because FSLabs had released a product called SpotLights that they sold separately and it can be used by a novice to add cockpit lights with some kind of UI. I don't know if their lights really look this good though. These lights on the 717 update are really special. This is the best lighting that I have ever seen in a cockpit for any flight simulation.
