PFD Altitude number and HDG too small (suggestion)

I would like to leave a suggestion, or see if anyone agrees that the number of the altitude in the PFD is very small, especially for cases like me that do not have a 4k monitor, my 1080p 23 "monitor.

 

Sometimes it is necessary to make a small adjustment in altitude, without losing the pilot's camera, but it is impossible to see the numbers if you do not get close enough!

 

If it is possible to feed a little, it will be incredible !

 

Thanks

Hello, thanks. But I disagree, my suggestion is based on the scale with respect to the other numbers.

 

As you can see in the real image, the altitude has a scale equal to the rest of all the numbers.

 

I believe that increasing the altitude by 20% the size does not affect the project at all and does not hurt the realism of this fantastic add-on.

 

Anyway, thank you for your attention! thanks.

If we do that it would be unrealistic and it would simply not fit. I suggest you zoom in or pop out the panel.

 

With all due respect, but that is a poor argument when your current PFD text sizes and positions are a fair bit off from 'realistic'.

There is plenty of space to work with to enlarge the selected altitude a bit. The altitude tape font could be larger, same for the speedtape font and alignment next to the hashmarks. And you can see a lot of differences in spacing here.

 

There is room for improvement, and it would not be unrealistic, quite the contrary.

Agree with that. Not a big deal to change the font size and it would be helpfull while selecting an altitude.

Being brutally honest, CRJay's PFD would make life a lot easier for me. This is an extremely eye-straining cockpit, even for someone using trackIR. 

If I recall correctly, popping out panels was linked with CTDs since release. I've therefore not wanted to experiment with the option.

I hope that this could be incorporated too, it’s quite difficult to see the selected altitude in VR.

From the photo posted it looks like the font could be larger but also the scale of the PFD as a whole could be a bit larger?

The vertical alignment of the numbers from 1/2BNK down the speed tape and then the selected Mach number is a good example of where you can find the space.

At this moment there are no plans to change this. Do keep in mind that images you find on the internet could be from much older versions of the aircrtaft.

 

I hope you are referring to images of the Aerosoft version possibly being outdated, the real one has not changed much over the years...

 

The image I posted as comparison is taken by myself, in an actual CRJ (a 900, but no difference in PFD layout with the 700). Between FMS software versions there are also no scaling or alignment changes. You can jump in a CRJ200 and see the same PFD layout, alignment and scaling.

 

I hope this will make it to the list of stuff to work on. If you need reference pictures, just give me a shout.
