    We will discuss that internally!

    Small friday update: Basic shading is now done. Focus was oriented to complete the main panels. The other details are added later, so please not comply about missing visual features yet. Next week we re-introduce system funtionality to all VC elements and add higher resoluted displays. The pictures below show the textures as they appear in the sim (beside the missing details). Dirt is added as last and extra layer! The seat fabric is also being changed and shows currently the old state.

    Must still adapt to the new forum structure: A318-A321 series this was meant for....

    Very small friday update: Modeling the new cockpit and preparation for texturing is finished now. Next weeks work is introducing new gauges and texturing the model. Hopefully pictures again next friday from within the sim...

    Of course fully, as it would not fit otherwise into the gearbay!
  6. Will work correctly again in the next update...

    Marcel: Can you send us please a picture, tell us the plane type (7 or 9) and the sim version you use the aircraft in?

    Those small stuff above the pictures called "text content" is also an important part of the forum. It had told you even about a "warning" that still a lot of old parts are present in the pictures which are still to be exchanged. The former HD Set for the Airbus series concentrated mostly on the type art, as exchanging the shaded material attributes is not possible that way. But the changes go much deeper: ALL geometry is also overworked and optimized, material layout is freshly done and the shading is done with the most modern technology saving a lot of geometry with the same visual result keeping a lot of geometry related tasks away from the CPU. As we have a lot of work done in parallel, i can only forward completely working cockpits to my programming buddies and testers. Elsewise they would become stuck in their adventures. So of course parts which have not been changed yet, stay visually the same til the next working step. Thats why you maybe mistakenly seen OLD parts as NEW parts. Again: I try to rule out such misinterpretations by typing extra words about it. By the way: The post told about the next part I am working on is the pedestal section -> logical conclusion -> currently seen is the old pedestal version... (window stuff is also old)
  10. Of course they should! But as we did it like this the cockpit was flooded with light from the back. Reason: The landing lights dont cast shadows yet and penetrate the hull without any resistence. We will need some patience and hope that this will be updated by LM, as we will see this very often happen also with other wingmounted landinglights in future... Also the overbright buildings on airports are not our fault. It seems that the landinglights currently handle the ground and other objects differently. This must also be overworked by the sim makers....

    Time for a small friday update: A warning up in front: The cockpit is currently a somewhat "messy" construction site. There are still a lot of old components which are exchanged piece by piece with new ones. Work concentrates on the functional stuff like important panels currently. The overhead has been replaced now and is back in action. The images show the complete list of the button lights now; all there are existing. Mainpanel has been refreshed and modeling is already completed on the new pedestal stuff which starts texturing next week. Also the displays are old ones from the last version as i not immediately take the new BETA stuff onto my machine. Higher resolution is planned also there... The older textures for FSX also needed to be much brighter in the more remote spots. Prepar3D V4 with HDR features that much better, with simulating the eye opening / exposure time dynamicly.

    I figured out the offset of the tailart between VERTICAL TAIL AND RUDDER. Simply move your tailfinart copy that pixeldifference, delete the overstanding rest and you are done (Shift arrow in PS jumps 10px per input to move fast and correct over larger distances):
  13. Tips for repainting the tail

    If its about the Tail/Rudder combination. There is also a simple pixel offset formula existing: Simply do you tail art and for the rudder, move the art the same amount of pixels listed in the image; then it fits correctly. You can removed that not needed parts via masking

    This was no arrogance, this was an attempt to scientificly understand the motivation of some posts. It was also not directed towards you, but an answer on Mopperle´s question. But the anonymous situation of the internet often introduces people to release their inner itches that way, without any serious connection to the topic. And to be true: If you are endless happy with a thing, you focus completely on it as it fills you with pure luck. And if someone knows what this means, this someone knows also in those moment you dont need any other thing; also not to open an account on a totally other place and tell people about your discomfort with them. And when you witness that rather often and are still eager to learn more, you start to ask yourself what motivates such people. Its important for social relationships to understand what drives the other. In the end we ALL want the same: Be lucky. And when we understand the other, you can better control the situations to the favour of each of us: Relax, communicate, take the needed actions to return to a healthy state...

    Got fresh images this morning about the subject lordweedy: What i got a source was an old variant of the buttons. Mine showed clearly a difference between the white and orange ones. On the new images i can see clearly the SQUIB is now clearly colored in white. Maybe the old ones were not different enough for stress situations. So this is of course updated now to the new standard! A330 300 Lufthansa of course gets one... on the other models we dont know yet....
