    Enquiry: shiny cowl?

    Firstly - What a great update! So happy with the modifications! You guys have really pulled it into the bag and have done a superb job! LOVE THIS PLANE!! And this topic is not a problem As such, but all my livery’s have shiny cowls, is there a way of switching this off? I feel like I’m being blind I’m sorry! Many thanks again! Great job! Nick

    Exterior Modelling Request

    So I love this aircraft, and I love your aircraft! which is a great representation I might add. Please don't think that i'm nitpicking this is simply a enquiry/request on the exterior modelling, if possible. 1) cockpit window geometry: comparing the three pictures, will these windows be modified as in some views (see pic 3 below) the angles seem a little off maybe? below: side windows slightly angled up credit where its due, you mentioned you was restricted/limited to polys when building this aircraft, and i understand your smoothing some of these out etc. so i was wondering if these areas will see some attention too? 2) Engine Vortex Generators: Comparing these two pictures, is it possible to make them bigger perhaps? Thanks guys, and thank you for still developing an aircraft that people in this group love just as much as you do! Keep up the great work, looking forward to the next update (I check on a daily bases)!

    Engine textures request

    Hi guys, really looking forward to the update and future updates of this bird! It just gets better and better! so I was wondering, on a texture/modelling/visual stand point, if the engine lines you see in the pictures below will be modelled? I try and draw my own on my livery paints but it doesn’t look very realistic in my honest opinion. So yeah...just sticking it out there to see if I can bite some interests for some visual changes. If not, it’s no issue, just sticking it out there anyway haha. Thanks guys! Looking forward to hearing more about these updates Birdy

    Version 1.3 update tidbits

    I did have another idea..of being able to input/type in ZFW and fuel qty instead of sliders?

    Version 1.3 update tidbits

    Nicotum, I just read through your documents. And it looks like a great plugin my friend. So really nice work But what I’m requesting for is just one simple slider which can change/restrict how much brake pressure can be applied through a press of an assigned button/trigger. So when I press the button, I’m not getting a 100% whack/or full braking.

    Version 1.3 update tidbits

    Well I don’t have pedals and I only use a trigger on my stick. Is there a way of softening how much braking goes into a single press of the trigger?
  14. CaptBirdy

    Version 1.3 update tidbits

    How about a brake slider to adjust how sensitive the brake is applied. The drama I get is that it can be on at max. Or intermittent max (brakes every 3-4 seconds at max) would be nice to set a sensitivity so we can do nice slow stops

    Version 1.3 update tidbits

    This is very exciting! I can’t wait for more updates!

    Update please!!!!!

    I’m also looking forward to this update. I had to sell my old pc due to extension of the family....but I’ve bought another one now, just for the reason I miss flying. can’t wait to start new liveries and most importantly, I can’t wait to fly my 737-300 again. really good to see this bird is still being developed, it’s the only reason I fly on X-plane 11 keep up the good work IXEG!

    If your new to painting. Please see this. It’ll help with the paint glitch for engines

    I came across this glitch in my reprints. As stated before in previous comments, there is a work around. And it resides in the opposite side of the paint kit (so what you see in the window is on the other side of the aircraft..on the paint kit, if that makes sense), find what area of the logo you see coming through, cut a window shape out of the logo (where it bleeds through on the aircraft) and that should do the trick

    Livery List & Requests

    To all, and Jorge Uvo for the request. Virgin Express 00-LTU 2 x variants: 2 x Clean versions (1 x With White Nose) 2 x Dirty versions (1 x With White Nose) Issues/Changes: Apologies in advance, but on the right side rear door area, you'll see the fuselage glitch, this is out of my control and can not be rectified on my end (this has been the same issue with any of my liveries that have decals that cross this section of the aircraft) (not a painters fault) Black nose paint is not the shape on the real 00-LTU, but I made a compromise from a majority of Virgin Express 733's, as some are different shapes, so I went with the most used shape from looking at a variety of Virgin Express 733's, so I hope this isn't an issue for you. EDIT: changed '00-LTU' to 'OO-LTU' As i thought it was numbers in the pictures (my bad eyes, sorry) so please discard the ones in the pictures. Other than that, I really enjoyed painting this one! very challenging tail decal, there was a few moments I screamed a little but overall, great fun! Hope you all enjoy. Many Thanks, Nick Link: https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/51798-virgin-express/

    To All Livery Painters

    Hello to all Painters. I've spotted an anomaly with my paints and in some of yours too. some might have already realised so this topic wont effect you. what i am specifically aiming this topic at is this:
  25. Hi everyone, I’m very new to XP, I’ve had p3d for a while now, but I feel I’m definitely jumping ship here...(honestly..I can’t even boot it up anymore, which is a shame because I do love it along with all my addons for it) anyway.. I’m not all that clued up yet, I got the hang of Ortho4xp and mesh HD today, and can’t wait to make more (can’t believe it’s free...it blows my mind). So..I need help when it comes to updating XP, do I lose all my scenery that I’ve installed and added? Or can someone tell me what I lose when I update? Do I have to reinstall everything etc? any light on this would be greatly appreciated as I’m a little lost Many thanks Nick
