    Unfortunately, this is not something we are able to do at this stage.

    With thanks to @TheBoeing747, here is our official anniversary repaint! For all queries, please send a forum message to him!
  4. 6 years ago today, TFDi Design became an official registered company. Throughout this long period, the company has grown to where it is today, and from the administration team here, @turbofandude and I, we would like to thank everyone who has worked at TFDi Design, both past and present, for their motivation and abilities that helped grow the company. One of our community members, @TheBoeing747, has been working with Collin and I over the past few weeks to help work on a celebratory house livery for the TFDi Design 717, and has also written a few words and asked our current staff members some questions about their time at TFDi Design. Without further ado, @TheBoeing747 has also painted us the 6th Anniversary livery for the TFDi Design 717 which we hope to see flying in the virtual skies soon! Please make sure you submit your photos on our Discord, or in this forum post: To get your hands on the Official livery, you can download it from here: Once again, thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to bringing the MD-11 to market!
  5. First of all, I would like to say thank you to every person who has submitted content for the MD-11. We have been inundated with key materials that will contribute directly to the development of the aircraft.Everything is greatly appreciated. If you do have any more manuals, diagrams, photographs, or information please continue to send them in right here. A big shoutout to @ozzman1997 for his continued hard work on the exterior model. The control surfaces are now all exported from the model and our flight dynamics programmer will soon begin his work from the amazing material that has been submitted by the community to ensure the MD-11 flies like the real deal! For our livery painters who wish to work on new liveries for the MD-11, Ozzy has also confirmed that the windows can be configured via the alpha channel, simply by manipulating the alpha channel of the albedo map. If you are interested in learning more, this forum post is great to read: On the backend, further development is still ongoing for non-visual requirements and we can’t show these at the moment. Once this is further down the road, we intend to explain this in a little more detail for you to read through when we have more to discuss. Another big item is that we managed to get the aircraft systems working ahead of the models and textures. With recent work from Collin, the FMC is now being worked on and the image above shows an FMC added to some user submitted images. It is important to remember that this is a work in progress, using user submitted files that allow us to make this look correct in place. This is not representative of the final product! Although the above image only shows a small amount of functionality, the system driving it is important. We are using a system that lets us write and debug code better and easier and eliminates a lot of the bottlenecks we usually encounter. This will become a testbed for our systems code and allow us to develop and test the aircraft while Ozzy is creating the visual elements. A short note from @RogueShadow, one of the MD-11 Developers: To Summarise The aircraft has a lot of work being done but we are still unable to provide a release date, or even an estimate. We hope that regular development updates that we release will allow you to see what is being done on the aircraft. Understandably, these will slow down as in depth code writing begins to pick up, as we would be unable to share that! That being said, we hope to supplement these updates with developer streams on Twitch so you can see the work that is being done when it gets to the finer details! Thank you, and have a great week! - Josh
  6. Good afternoon! Over the past few weeks since our announcement of the MD-11, a lot of progress has been made to the aircraft alongside ongoing work with our Passenger and Crew Experience addon. This blog post will bring you up to speed on what we are doing in the background. PACX We have noticed a few bug reports regarding extreme taxi conditions. Upon further review, there were parameters involved with the extreme taxi conditions that often triggered the message in the client. As a result, the decision was made to remove this event from PACX as it is almost impossible to define every single parameter accurately to trigger the event. As part of our ongoing updates to PACX, we now also fully support Prepar3D V5 with PACXBridge, several new comments, eight new statistics, and the ability to close PACX from the main menu. Furthermore, our detailed statistics now show your passenger satisfaction as a percentage! And finally, our major features that are currently out to test in our Discord feature the following: SimBrief Integration Discord Rich Presence Exported data files for streaming overlays. The full change log is available to view here for the upcoming version, 0.9.91.0: To join the beta, and to help test new features, join our Discord at https://tfdidesign.com/chat. Community Group Flights Over the past few weeks, we have been completing group flights with members of both the JetStream Radio and TFDi Design teams with the community on most Friday afternoons. We find these are a great way for you to chill with the developers of the aircraft, ask some questions and enjoy flying. All announcements for the group flight are posted on the official TFDi Design Discord, to which there is an invite on the right of this post, and you are free to join us on a flight! If you have any suggestions for group flights, we are all ears! Let us know in Discord and we will pitch the idea to the rest of the team! Photo: Josh Riley What next? We are working on the MD-11 in the background and have some amazing work to show you. We expect to publish another post next week with some brand new screenshots taken during the development of the aircraft. Thank you all for your continued help and support with everything we are doing, and we look forward to bringing you another great aircraft in the near future!
  7. TFDi Design is proud to announce the TFDi Design 717 project! We are working hard on the new 717 project, and it is farther along than expected. Why the 717? The 717 is a very fun airplane to fly, and is different than any other aircraft. It has a unique design, both externally and internally, and will be a pleasure to design and fly. The flight simulation community was in desperate need of a quality 717, and we feel we can fulfill that need. How far along is it? The 717 is currently about 20% of the way completed. Currently the external model is mostly completed, and the flight dynamics are mostly complete as well. We are in the process of texturing the external model and collecting resources for the virtual cockpit. We are planning a rapid development cycle for this project, and plan to push it as fast as we can without sacrificing quality. WHEN CAN WE GET IT? As always, TFDi does NOT make any projections on release dates, as they are subject to enormous change. We will keep everyone updated, and the best place to stay up to date is right here! Want to contribute? TFDi needs resources and information from real pilots and crew, and we would love any help any of our fans could give us. If you or someone you know can help, please email us at admin@tfdidesign.com!
  8. Roberto, We would recommend the use of PHPVMS to achieve what you want. If you are wanting to integrate this with smartCARS, it is easy to do. We will even install the phpVMS for you if you select the option at checkout when you order our web hosting. Josh
  9. We’re aware of this issue happening as it has been reported by a few people. We are looking into this!
  10. What version of FSUIPC are you using?
  11. [MOVED TO SUPPORT] Are you using any shaders, or other graphic enhancements?
  12. Hi! I also have the same issue in v5. This is not just limited to the 717, as I experience this with other aircraft also. One of our users in a private Discord channel said: If you want to help test this, please join our Discord, go to #role-assign and then choose 717 Beta Tester in V5.
  13. @A320User The v5 is a beta installer that is not available on our website. We have it on our Discord server for people to join and download in the testers channel. The upgrade is free, and is available for people who buy the v4 version. When it is officially released, the addon manager will get another option to download for P3D V5, and the 717 is backwards compatible.
  14. Seems nobody else wanted to reply.... I have a EVGA RTX 2080 Ti, 11GB DDR6
  15. @koko Are you able to click the tablet? If you enable ground power and the battery, you will be able to start the aircraft. The KB article most likely has any issues that you may be facing.
  16. We are now ready for everyone to start testing the TFDi Design 717 in Prepar3D v5. Please note, this is a beta. There may be issues with it and you are installing it at your own risk. That said, should you choose to install and test it, your feedback will be greatly appreciated via this form: https://forms.gle/h7HsCQbacvPTRpyi9. To access the beta and for more information, please join our Discord server (viewed on the right hand side of this post, click connect) and you will find all information in the announcements channel. You can also self assign the role of v5 Beta Tester to gain access to the testing channel to discuss the beta. Thank you for all your help, and hopefully we can get this fully compatible ASAP! Cheers, Josh

    V5

    There is no official timeline, as it keeps getting asked in Discord. We are just awaiting some bug fixes from LM. In regards to the upgrade price, it will be free.
  18. Dave, Moved to community support (for getting support). To install this, copy the information from the readme (if it is there), then add it to the aircraft.cfg file and ensure the livery directory is set appropriately and that the number is correct. For reference, which livery are you using?
  19. As Fabio said, it is everything that the addon manager downloads for it to be able to install into the sim. As things differ between different sims, they have different files downloaded. It also decreases the addon manager download size by only downloading what you need.
  20. At the moment, we initially plan to release the MD-11 and MD-11F.
