• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

You can read about all improvements by reading the Readme_WIP v0.7.8.txt in the Documentation directory.

- All steam gauges are coded and animated, radio panel, tank selectors and electricity gauges also
- Wipers are added and are functional,
- 90% of the levers on the mobile part of yokes are coded and animated
- A boarding stair animated has been added on the blisters version
- Interior of Blisters version has been upgraded: news seats for passengers, fire extinguishers, etc ...
- 22 PLN provided by a fan of this aircraft (official forum) are provided to discover the beauties of the World
- Three new repaints are added: Aeronaval has a little trouble under the wing because the repainter has worked without paintkit, this will be solve as soon as possible

I want for the next version modify the fuselage to represent the N427CV which which should appeal to many of you

Last work on the VC and the fire panel :

Emergency manual pump for hydraulic circuit and a "hole" in the cockpit to see if the front gear is "in" or "out" :

On the Water Bomber version I have finish the structure of the aircraft and the mechanics for opening the tanks :

The same view but on Blisters version :

Fully modelled APU with control knob and voltage monitoring gauge - function not currently coded in XML

On the Water bomber, APU and probe/scoop to collect water :

Hi,

I have just published my latest working version. This version isn’t the last, it is a simple snapshot from my developments, but it contains 95% of the elements I wanted to model.
As for the textures, they are quite basic, they are just textures that allow me to better understand the 3D during my work. Some are more worked (PBR) when it is about small parts or tests.
The next stage of development will be mainly focused on :
  • the final textures, all mapping and textures will be rework (PBR and paintkit)
  • the improvement of the existing XML code because there are some bugs that are still present and some functions that I need to finish coding.
  • the management of the internal cockpit lights: the buttons are already animated but I’ll want to write the code in the presence of the final textures to only make one pass on this issue.

Known bug
:
  • The ATtitude Indicator give false information: in horizontal flight, the displayed artificial horizon leans to the left (~2°), the problem is known, isolated and being fixed.

For the moment, you can already download this V0.8.0 release which contains 10 repaints:
  • SAGQ C-FPQK n°712 (Quebec)
  • Northwest Territories Canada C-FNJE n°712
  • 1S5 Aeronavale version
  • C-FCRR Air France version
  • C-FCRR Okavanga version
  • ICONA EC-FMC Hispanic version of Water Bomber
  • F-ZBAR French Protection Civil (1965)
  • N9767 Bertaud-Belieu
  • N427 CV US version restaured in South Africa
  • G-PBYA Miss Pick Up
Once version 1.0 is released, my aim is to continue my developments by incorporating a “damage mode” (a light accufeel) from the one I wrote for the C-150 Tibush (FSX/P3D).

Good Fly !
