  1. Version 1.0.0

    20 downloads

    With another P3D simulator out for release and TFDI among the first to release a viable aircraft as a client I decided to make a DoD repaint of the 717 dubbed the VC-9F (D and E I left open in case I want to do the same for the Leonardo MDs). Now you can practice approaches in a DoD aircraft at Randolf AFB!!

    With another P3D simulator out for release and TFDI among the first to release a viable aircraft as a client I decided to make a DoD repaint of the 717 dubbed the C-9F (D and E I left open in case I want to do the same for the Leonardo MDs). Now you can practice approaches in a DoD aircraft at Randolf AFB!!
  3. Let me do a final look and upload them. Been a busy week and procrastinating. Edit: Uploaded to Avsim and Here. Files pending approval should be today or tomorrow.
  4. Has anyone noticed in the CDU when you change pages or enter text with a LSK that the text fades from the scratch pad? Kinda leaves the old text as well like an old CRT burned image. I’ll have to try to grab a video of it.
  5. With the advent of v5 out there now I decided to do a ficitonal paint of the 717 to fight test around the default airport. Randolf AFB. I'm calling it a VC-9F completely fictional but as the 717 shares the DC-9 type by the FAA I figured I'd just give the old venerable DC-9 a new variant. I might do the Leonardo MD-80 in these paints if I get the bug so they would be the VC-9D/E. The belly in this model isn't chrome as the model isn't PBR. But if I can figure out what TFDI did to make the engine inlets so reflective I might give it a shot. Otherwise the other painted variant of the old VC-9 is what I'm going with. Should have it done later today or tomorrow for those that are interested. Obviously this isn't a final product, still have door seals to do, and tidy up a few more areas and the vertical stab isn't done yet. Different design from the old DC-9 is making a a tad more difficult to get that chevron right. Just finished them. Will give a fine comb over in a bit. I was thinking of adding the red cross to the C-9F variant. Maybe I'll do a quick third just for that rather than leave it as an option. I figured without the cross was a bit more versatile as there isn't actually a cargo door on the TFDI 717 and I can't plug random windows to create the illusion of it. Anyways, heres the thumb of both.
  6. If they decide not to develop this (which I doubt they will), take a look at FsBTV. Free autobrake addon that simulates that of the A350. Actually kinda cool.

    Alaska Airlines Boeing 717 (N754AS) Original repaint made by Brian Thibodeaux. thibodba@yahoo.com
  8. I've uploaded my Alaska Livery to Avsim, just waiting for approval. I've also contacted a staff member here about hosting it on this site. You can click on the link in my signature to get to my repaints though.
  9. Only with PBR if you want a real metal look but doesn't sound like thats really on the board for the time being unfortunately. Working to get Steves metal base layer just is to much work with this kit and I don't have that much time on my hands. PBR would make this fast, like within the day to create a kit fast.
  10. @turbofandude About PBR to the external model?
  11. @Sanpp @mach533x Just purchased the 717 today. Still lots to be done to it, but its taking shape. I'll also be doing the most current Alaska livery if it doesn't drive me nuts. No timeline on that though.
