Es war sehr schön zu sehen, wie das Flugzeug immer wieder ein bisschen besser wurde, irgendwann die Schwelle zu "fliegbar" hinter sich liess und eben verdammt gut wurde.


    (Und das ging soweit, dass der bayerische Grantler immer weniger zu meckern hatte.)




    Was jetzt noch aussteht, woran aber gearbeitet wird, ist grob zusammengefasst:


    -Exterior upgrade und damit einhergehend Paintkit-Release

    -P3Dv4

  • Dann ist der Flieger wohl soweit, dass ich ihn mir auch gönnen kann

    Ja, absolut. Das Teil macht mittlerweile echt Spaß. Ein paar kleine Macken hat das Pferd aber immer noch, Update 1.0.8.1 kommt auch bald. Nach wie vor ein Krampf ist m.E. die fleckige Nachtbeleuchtung, die auch so schnell wohl nicht korrigiert wird. Ich sehe aber auch nicht ein, dafür extra FSLabs Spotlight zu kaufen.

    Positiv: Ich habe im TFDi-Forum mal nachgefragt, ob es die Möglichkeit geben kann, im VC-Tablet einen Browser zu bekommen, damit man Navigraphs moving Chart-Map direkt nutzen kann. Das schaut man sich für P3d v4 an (keine VAS-Limitierungen wie in FSX/v3) :thumbup:.

  • Irgend ein Update bereitet mir heute Probleme mit dem Tablet :/


    Gestern noch lag der Tablet Ordner mit all seinen Dokumenten im Simobjects Ordner der 717, heute, nachdem ich die Settings auf Europe geändert habe, liegt dieser im Dokumenten Stammordner unter C://...

    Problem an der Sache ist nun, das mir das Tablet keine .png's mehr anzeigt. Klicke ich ne hinterlegte Chart, etc.. an, so bleibt diese komplett weiß. Jemand mit dem selben problem hier? Admin rechte lösen das Problem nicht, das habe ich schon probiert.

  • Moin zusammen, möchte euch gerne ein Beispiel für die Motivation der TFDi-Entwickler zeigen, ihr Flugzeug weiter zu verbessern.

    In dem verlinkten Foren-Beitrag listet ein Hawaiian-Pilot einige Details auf, die ihm in der Umsetzung der 717 als falsch oder gar nicht umgesetzt aufgefallen sind. Colin von TFDi nimmt zu allen Stellung und zeigt sich aufgeschlossen, die Punkte zu optimieren.

    Ich finde, so eine offene Politik ist total sympathisch und für einen Newcomer auf jeden Fall auch sehr professionell. Bin froh, seit den ersten Stunden nach Release zugeschlagen zu haben, denn so ließ sich der Fortschritt über die einzelnen Updates sehr schön mitverfolgen.

  • Ein großer Teil der Volotea Flotte ist jetzt gepainted :huh:
