    Livery List & Requests

    There is a "workaround" for this issue... you have to remove your livery paint wherever you've painted over the windows. So just delete everything that is painted inside the windows.

    FMS Control Help?

    Just click on any of the hex screws in the 4 corners to show or hide the panel.

    Out of curiosity: Is radar altitude not part of the real world plane, or is it just not modelled in this version?

    IXEG Livery Problem

    Yes, as far as I can remember... temporarily remove the green logo on the left side of the fuselage and you'll see the green portion in the window on the right side should disappear. The only workaround at the moment is to delete the portions of the green logo on the left side where it covers the windows.

    IXEG Livery Problem

    Unfortunately it's the way the texture maps are laid out... what you could try is to remove the green portions on the left of the fuselage where they are going over the windows. If I remember correctly the green you see in the window is coming from the other side where your green logo is going over one of the windows.

    CTD - Random

    Hi, Here's a screenshot of my plugins folder on a completely clean XP 11 install. (Except Gizmo64). So just move out everything that's not in this list.

    CTD - Random

    First thing you should do is to update your graphics card drivers... you're still on 399.24 and should be on at least 419.35. You should also remove (not just disable) all of your plugins (except Gizmo) and then add them back one at a time to see if you can spot which one might cause a CTD. Hope it helps...

    great airplane except ground handling

    As far as I know Hot Start is doing some experiments w.r.t ground handling. I read it on their Discord System Support Channel. So let's wait and see...

    No ice textures when there is ice formation

    I'm pretty sure that if those little dots are not in the real TBM-900 they will not be added to this one...

    No interior sound with last update

    Judging by your log file you are most certainly exceeding the limits of your hardware. Even SkyMaxx Pro is warning you in the log file... SkyMaxx Pro: WARNING! CPU free memory at 21840 KB. X-Plane may crash due to lack of memory. Close other applications, reset your settings, or remove memory-intensive add-ons such as photo-scenery. Try running the TBM with all your plugins removed (not disabled) except Gizmo and see if it's still behaving like this. If not add your plugins back one by one until you find a possible culprit.

    Uncontrollable yaw on takeoff

    Hi, yes it is normal... have a look at page 39 of the QuickStartGuide.pdf included with the plane. It's under TAXI-OUT PROCEDURES - Verify trim settings.

    Uncontrollable yaw on takeoff

    Hi, have a look at the topics below w.r.t ground handling whilst taking off and landing. I also struggled a lot (to the point of giving up ) and the only way to overcome this is with a bit of practice. And making sure that your rudder is properly configured. Start out with no wind and just practice some run-ups on a long runway. You'll get the hang off it.

    Crash in cold & dark cockpit

    Hi Goran, Yes, bit of a waste to just let this nice bird sit there... I was actually making notes of all the buttons and encoders for the PFD and MFD as I'm planning on building some cockpit hardware. I initially connected the GPU and turned on the battery just to get some back-light on the panels. Once I was done I turned the battery off and disconnected the GPU. I left the sim running and just over 4 hours later when I returned to my PC I realised that X-Plane pulled a Houdini on me. You will notice from the X-Plane log file that not much happened between 11:53:41 when X-RAAS initialised until 16:02:20 when the sim went belly up. Thanks for looking into this.

    Crash in cold & dark cockpit

    Hi, My TBM 900 crashed after about 4 hours just sitting in the cold & dark cockpit. This is my first crash since I bought her and I wasn't even there to see it happen. Let me know if you need anything else. Log.txt TBM900_Log.txt

    PFD/MFD popout positions

    Hi, I noticed that the PFD and MFD will popout more or less in 2D where they are displayed in the 3D cockpit... if you move them around then the next time they will again popout based on your view position. Not a "biggie", but it would've been nice if the popout window position could be persisted. Just a thought...
