    Fresh Paint Friday

    It would be nice if the developers gave us some word on this instead of just ignoring it.

    TFDi Design 717: What's Next

    So is Fresh Paint Friday already dead or what? After the one release, there's been no word from anyone about it

    Welp, that was a disappointing FPF. I wonder why there was no word from the devs?

    Logo light washout

    That's cool. I wasn't trying to step on anyone's toes or anything - just wanted to make an airplane I love a bit better is all.

    Logo light washout

    I didn't change any textures. I changed a parameter of the actual external model regarding the light map emissive property with MCX. No textures need to be changed whatsoever. I've already sent the models to TFDi, but haven't received a response yet.

    CTD with no error (Chaseplane?)

    I've had a couple random CTDs here as well - using ChasePlane.

    Logo light washout

    Before we start adding light maps to paints, remember we had the same issue back in the day with AI Aardvark models. A simple parameter change in MCX fixes the problem permanently, and eliminates the need to change any liveries whatsoever. The emissive mode of the 717_ext_4 texture (the one that contains the logo light) should be changed from "AdditiveNightUserControlled" to "MultiplyBlendUserControlled." I've gone ahead and done it myself (both for the P3Dv3 model and the P3Dv4 model), and will happily share with TFDi so that nobody has to start freaking out about liveries. 😉 If the default logo light is a little dim for your taste, you can easily change the brightness of the common light map (717_ext_4_lm) and make it a bit brighter. ...and it works for all your liveries.

    717 day!

    Of course it would be out at 7:17 😂

    How to set up autoland?

    Autoland requires an ILS signal, so it will not work with any non-precision approach like RNAV.
  10. 99.9% of the takeoffs I've seen have been flaps 13.

    CTD after REX WX radar update (P3D v4)

    The new REX WX radar update that came out today for P3D v4 causes the 717 to crash immediately on load, reproducible 100% while the module is active in the sim. Deactivating the module allows the 717 to load normally again.

Deactivating the module allows the 717 to load normally again. I've also posted this in the bug system. Using the latest version of the 717 and P3D v4.
  13. Yeah, I'm not sure how to describe this one. My displays look like fish tanks now. I just installed the 1.0.9.15 update in P3D v4. Happened about 40-45 minutes into my flight. The popup displays work normally. *Also reported in the bug system*

    Why is access to liveries so inconvenient?

    64-bit version is already out dude. At least for the COB it is.

    Cockpit Night Lighting Fix

    Dynamic lighting? I've seen some awesome things being done with it in the little time that P3D v4 has been out.
