  4. Spring Development Update Hello and welcome to our first official development update for 2022! Since our last update posted at the end of the year, we have made some fairly significant progress towards achieving our goals for the quarter and becoming one step closer to the release of the highly-anticipated TFDi Design MD-11. Our team has been working very hard in the background, and we are proud to start showcasing their efforts so far! PACX PACX has quickly grown into a staple for many simmers, and we recently spent several months working on an update to keep it fresh. This update was released on the 28th of April and had some pretty exciting new features. We added an improved “start flight” experience, namely via the aircraft cabin preview: Now, while starting your flight, you can get a better look at the cabin and seating layout. The aircraft begins to fill up in real-time as you increase your passenger count. We added some in-flight experience customization options, such as better control of the customs card announcement and the ability to specify if a flight number continues or not. We also added a new In-Flight Entertainment system! This IFE system allows you to view a live map of your flight, view news from FSElite, and listen to either of JetStream Radio’s music channels! We also added some extra sound options, native support for the FSLabs Airbus seatbelt sign, and fixed or tweaked a host of other items. The full changelog is on our forums here. We can focus more energy on the upcoming voice packs update with this update out of the way! We are working to create the tools and infrastructure needed to work with voice actors and actresses worldwide to offer a vast selection of accents and languages. We’ll talk more about this once we get further into it. If PACX interests you, head over to https://pacx.online to learn more. If you want to get your hands on PACX, use discount code PACX10 to get 10% off your PACX order! (Code valid until May 31st, 2022) smartCARS 3 While our artist works on finalizing the UI design, the team have been working diligently behind the scenes to establish a remarkable base for our next generation of flight tracking software. We have designed smartCARS 3 to allow a virtual airline to tailor the experience they want their pilots to have. Below is an example of our smartCARS 3 web API (this is subject to change and is currently still in active development) for searching the details of a flight, straight from phpVMS. In addition, our all-new API will provide virtual airline owners and developers a phenomenal base for their unique modules to allow each VA to have unique modules to support the individual needs of their organization. smartCARS 3, as has been discussed previously, will be a completely new system compared to earlier versions of smartCARS, bringing with it an entirely new level of functionality for everyone. We recently accomplished the first working version of our more advanced flight tracking and post-flight review features. Reviewing your past flights will mean more than a few boxes and flight log items. smartCARS 3 will offer data review and experience customization that we never thought possible. We are intentionally vague - we want you to be excited. JetStream Radio Our sister company, JetStream Radio, has been hard at work on several new things! In addition to being the primarily in-flight entertainment in smartCARS, as mentioned earlier, JetStream Radio is now front and centre in the PACX IFE. JetStream Radio is proud to announce their launch of JSR Classics channel playing classic hits music in addition to the recently refined JSR Hits playing the 90s to now favorites. Tune in at https://jetstreamradio.com for flight simulation-related interviews, news, giveaways, and more. If you are interested in becoming a Show Host or helping behind the scenes, please contact the JetStream Radio team on their Discord server here. MD-11 Our MD-11 team have been working diligently in the background to bring this project forward in leaps and bounds. While we still do not have an official timeline for release and testing, just know that we are progressing at rates never even imagined during the production of the TFDi Design 717. The art team has been hard at work on modeling and texturing. Take a look at some of the latest previews before diving into further details. And, of course, a good update would be incomplete without some beautiful PBR wing shots. Another exciting area we’ve started working on is the airframe variations! Work has begun on the cargo variant and the P&W engine variant. Below, we can see the cargo model taking shape and the amount of detail in the cargo area. Below is a very much work-in-progress image of the P&W engine model. We are continuing to work on mapping and texturing. We expect to see significant progress in these areas over the next few months. One of the most important advantages of our workflow is that the code can advance simultaneously with the visuals. In terms of system progression, Romel from our team has successfully connected the ISIS and is a true backup - it is a fully self-contained instrument. Complete with all three statuses: self-test, alignment, and operational. As the system is entirely standalone like the real thing, this does not depend on the Primary Flight Display for any data obtained from the simulator, allowing failures of the PFD not to affect the backup displays, paving the way for future development of the failures package going forward. Collin has been working on the autoflight system recently. We have taken what we learned from the TFDi Design 717 project and used it to build a much more robust autopilot. The added complexity of this aircraft’s automation, such as the RCWS and LSAS, makes it a challenging system to implement correctly. However, the autoflight has been able to hold the aircraft level successfully, and we have laid out the foundation of the code required for the mode logic and FMA. We expect to have an autopilot capable of at least basic flight control modes within the next few weeks. We are also welcoming a new programmer, Pedro, to our team this week! He will be working on systems code with us to help move the project along even faster. And in very positive news - our MD-11 repository hit 1,000 commits last week! For those of you who don’t know what that means, our team has written code for the MD-11 and submitted it to our central storage area (repository) 1,000 times! Our goal is to start working more within the simulators as we progress from here. MSFS previews are coming, but it is easier for us to test in P3D, which is where we will begin. Closing As always, we appreciate your support and patience. We aren’t providing any release date estimates because our priority is quality. We’re working as fast as we can without sacrificing that quality until we’re ready to put some awe-inspiring products in your hands. Thank you for reading, and be sure to join us on our Discord to chat with our developers and stay up to date with the latest developments!
  5. Hi @Proxima and welcome to our forums! I will pass this suggestion on to @turbofandude who can consider this for future implementation!
  6. Hi @NoelCP! We don't offer a trial version of our software to try it out, but we recommend you look over YouTube videos regarding the software, including our setup/walkthrough done by our community friend @Drawyah here: Please do let us know if we can help with anything!
  7. Hello! At the moment, there is an issue with Sim Update 5 of Microsoft Flight Simulator where altitude is read outside of the sim at a different value than what it should be (up to 2500ft away from where it should be) which may lead to issues with detection of the correct phases of flight in both PACX and smartCARS 2 and many users are reporting such issues. Until a time that a fix is available, you may need to enter a different cruising altitude though the exact value is dependant on the weather in the simulator. A full discussion on the official Microsoft Flight Simulator Forums can be found here: VATSIM / IVAO / PILOTEDGE Users - Be aware of an important bug! - Community / General Discussion - Microsoft Flight Simulator Forums When a hotfix is released to patch this bug, we will edit this post or remove it. Until then, we can only apologise for the inconvenience caused by this change and remain hopeful that the MSFS team can resolve this issue as soon as possible. If you experience this issue, please do not open a support ticket as it is a known bug and our team will not be able to provide you any assistance on the error. Thanks Josh
  8. The HUD does work on X-Plane! Open up a ticket and we can look into it
  9. You can keep this post here. I will make some edits for you and redirect to the download page
  10. You can apply updates, but we cannot offer support if it does not work on the OS. That being said, we have just pushed the final update to the 717 with the exception of significant bug fixes if they arise.
  11. Awesome news! I have actually just made a download category for you under TFDi Design 717 > Community Content. That would be the best place to keep updates and change logs, as well as the ability to use our download servers. If you need any help, shoot me a DM
  12. Thank you for your kind words! I know I speak for the entire team when I say we cannot wait to get this aircraft out and available to fly!
  13. Glad to see the issue is resolved, however strange it may be!
  14. This is a dependency issue with C++ redistributables. Contact our support team using the link in my signature and we can assist you.
  15. The aim is to expand the list in the future
  16. As we create new products, we would like to take advantage of more modern technology which older operating systems do not support. These older operating systems often have major security issues and no longer support modern security practices. For example, we see this manifested in the difficulty some of our products have using newer security protocols on Windows 7. For these reasons, in addition to Microsoft’s own end of support for these older operating systems, from September 1st 2021 onward, TFDi Design will no longer support Windows 7 or Windows 8 operating systems. We will continue to support Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 for as long as Microsoft chooses to add security updates. You can find more information about Microsoft’s support dates here. We plan to support Windows 11 from release, which is expected in late 2021. As a customer, there are now two options: You can choose to upgrade to a more modern operating system such as Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 and continue to receive support as they always have; or You can also choose to not upgrade, and stay on Windows 7 or Windows 8. This means that from September 1st 2021, our support team will request that the operating system of the machine is upgraded before proceeding with any further support. Please contact our support team via the helpdesk if you have any questions about these changes.
  17. @turbofandude Might be something of benefit to you
  18. Hi there! I have just tested this myself on v5.2 and all rain effects were working as anticipated. Are you using any external weather engine? Josh
  19. Hi David! Can you please elaborate on the exact error message you see? Cheers

  21. We have a similar idea in the pipeline. More information will come in due course as official announcements are made to explain what it actually is!
  22. Hi @StephanG2312, I have just tested this myself when registering for an account and it worked fine for me. It could be an issue with your adblocker if you have one, or maybe even not even being allowed by your browser. If you are still experiencing issues, please email support[at]tfdidesign[dot]com.
  23. Good Afternoon everyone! As of May 25th, 2021, TFDi Corp is no longer the name of our parent company. As a result of this, we are now known as Invernyx, Inc. It is important to stress at this time that no changes to the running of the business are intended nor changes to our product offerings. Our registration numbers in Florida are remaining unchanged. This change is simply administrative, where we are taking on a new brand as we continue to grow and expand our presence. Both TFDi Design and JetStream Radio are remaining as their current name and no changes to these brands will be made. We are taking all necessary steps to ensure that references to TFDi Corp are removed from our legal documents, agreements and websites, though the changes are expected to be rolled out slowly. Occasionally, you may notice references to TFDi Corp on our websites, and we encourage you to report these to us so that we can rectify these omissions. Over the next few hours, our executive management team will be updating as many systems as possible to reference this change. We would also like to thank Daryl for his work on this new logo, our small team who provided feedback on our logos, and our team for their support as we transition to the next stage! On behalf of the entire management team, we would like to thank you for joining us on this incredible journey from TFDi Corp to Invernyx, Inc. and for your continued support of our products and services. Kind Regards, Collin Biedenkapp and Joshua Riley Invernyx, Inc. Executive Management Team
  24. Happy Monday! It is with great pleasure that I can announce the latest people to join our team of Community Moderators. I am sure that you will all get to know these fresh faces soon, whether that be on these forums, in Discord or on smartCARS Global Chat! Please join me in congratulating @arwasairl @Ashton Fox @Claude and @Richard Thomas on their new position! Josh
  25. This is down to how the default aircraft in MSFS report their thrust to FSUIPC7. Unfortunately, there is not much we can do currently as we are awaiting better functionality for MSFS's SDK to support more advanced simulations and for FSUIPC to be fully updated and cover all bases. In the mean time, please ensure you keep running the latest versions of FSUIPC7, as it is going to likely be updated very soon to support this!
