CRJ Professional Preview (Released)

Recommended Posts

I have a question regarding the taxi lights: In the "old" CRJ, the taxi lights are rather shining "away" from the aircraft, that means, they mainly light up the areas left and right of the aircraft, similar to the turn-off lights in the Airbus. But every time I fly in a real-life CRJ (as a passenger) at night time, I detect no light cones on the ground at the side of the plane. And when I see other CRJs taxiing by, I detect that their taxi lights are rather directed towards the front of the plane, i.e. the taxiway centreline. This video of an IBEX CRJ-700 also shows a taxi light directed towards the front of the aircraft. Is that correct and if so, do you address this in the new version of the CRJ?

A bit, problem is that is two light cones hit the same area the lighting system in P3D goes a bit weird and it gets way too bright.

That figures, but in the video of the IBEX CRJ-700 it seems as if it uses a single taxi light on the nosewheel. I don't know whether that is the standard for the CRJ, though - but it might fix that problem.

That the landing lights are a bit different to the real thing has a rather simple reason: The landing lights cannot cast any shadow themselfes in Prepar3D, which is an ability only the sun and moon got there. But setting up the landing lights "like they should be" lights up the cockpit and you see nothing more than white at night. So the only workaround was too finely adjust cone angle and direction of lights a way, that it differes minimally from original, while not creating the lit up cockpit. This of course happens to all products made for Prepar3D as they all feature the same lighting system. Maybe its less obvious on others.

Planned is November 18th. If that's going to happen depends on the status of the product test by then. Or in other words: If it's not released on November 18, it's still not delayed :P 

 

is this estimate still on track? :D Just a day now to wait then it is time to burn the f5 key :D

Looks like someone was in a chase plane in flight with these pics. The realism is just plain scary. Kudos!

For all the retropilots …

I thought that this CRJ 1000 may not be missing!

I know, this Airline is not on the list of Mathijs, but …

(I love her!)

Thanks, @Stefan Hoffmann, for your answer regarding the taxi lights! Not that I want to postpone the release in any way, but isn‘t it possible to design the taxi light as a single light as opposed to double lights? In that IBEX video, it appears as if the taxi light is a single light on the nosegear.

 

And @Mathijs Kok or @Hans Hartmann: Can you already tell us more about the pricing of the CRJ Professional - especially the upgrade price?

The CRJ got a taxi light on the nosegear, two landings lights on each side in the wing, which are paired with slightly sideward pointing turning lights.

In realworld i learned that pilots often use the landinglights + taxi light for takeoff because it delivers a certain desired brightness, in Prepar3d i would also recommend this procedure because

of the special technical nature of the landing lights not casting shadows and so are forced to point slightly outward. Many different scenarios were played through for the positioning already, with

the current one as the most favourable one.

Thanks, Stefan. What I don‘t quite get is: Why didn‘t you design the taxi light as a single nosegear light, and the landing lights (when switched on) light only the left and right of the airplane. Or wouldn’t that have provided the desired amount of brightness? Currently, it seems to be the other way round: The taxilight(s) light the left and right of the plane, while the front of the plane is only lit if one switches the landing lights on.

Around 63 Euro (plus VAT when applicable) or 21 Euro to update from the current version.

Sorry no changes on the lights planned, we'll look at that next year.
