    The FSX exterior model has no reflections

    Hello Michael, thanks a lot for the explanation! I would have preferred it if the FSX model would use the global environment map as well. But I understand that this is a design decision and mainly a matter of taste. Greetings Tim

    The FSX exterior model has no reflections

    Hello Michael, thanks for your help! It looks better now but still not the way it should look. I made a gif that will show you what I mean. Both pictures are from FSX. The only difference is that I used the FSX exterior model for one picture and the P3Dv4 exterior model for the other picture: As you can see there is a significant difference between these models with regard to the amount of the reflectivity. It would be great if you could adapt the FSX model so that it looks the same as the P3Dv4 model looks in FSX. Thanks and Greetings Tim
  3. Hi Michael, first of all, thank you very much for the FSX version! While checking if my repaints are working fine with the FSX version, I noticed that the exterior model has almost no reflections. It looks as if the alpha channel is ignored by the exterior model. For a test I copied the exterior model of the P3Dv4 version into FSX and the reflections were back. Maybe you could take a look if there is an error in the FSX exterior model. Thanks a lot Greetings Tim
  4. There was indeed an issue with the installer. But it is all solved now Greetings Tim
  5. Thanks for your reply! Yes, I'm absolutely sure that I entered everything correctly. I tried it again with the P3Dv4 installer and it worked right away. I bought the DC-8 from Just Flight so maybe that could be the issue. I've contacted their support and hope that they can help me out. Greetings Tim
  6. Hi, first of all thank you very much for the FSX version of the DC-8! I just downloaded the installer but I always get the "wrong serial number/email" error message. It's the exact same serial number that worked well with the P3Dv4 installer. So I was wondering if there is maybe a problem with the FSX installer? Greetings Tim

    As already mentioned, this repaint is only semi-realistic as the NASA DC-8 is a 60 model. However, the livery looks quite good on the 50 model as well NASA Douglas DC-8 (N817NA) Greetings Tim

    A couple of mapping anomalies?

    Not really an anomaly but one thing I would wish for is to have individual textures for the two wings. That would make it possible to add logos and registrations. Greetings Tim

    This is not a livery I would have usually done. But as you seem to like it a lot, I've done it for you. I hope you like it Cyprus Airways Douglas DC-8 (N99862) Greetings Tim

    engines not starting

    I'm having a very similar issue. After clicking on cold&dark, I'm not able to start engine number 4. Engine number 1,2 and 3 are starting fine and without issues. So I guess the start procedure is correct. Greetings Tim
