  1. So here's what's happening. The Saab is still being worked on. Quite a bit of work in the programming department has already been done on it, as well as re-modeling and re-texturing some of the cockpit that was done in the 2nd half of last year. I'll post screenshots soon. DC-3 update is in the works. Mainly updates in code. Flight model has had a few changes made along with a few cosmetic changes and bug fixes The 747-200 and -400 are still moving forward but they are long term projects and a lot has been happening on those in recent months. Don't want to elaborate on that just yet. I really want to, and plan on finishing the Hawker 4000, but it will need quite a lot of programming and an FMC. I was almost prepared to just add some kind of basic FMC, but after talking to Cameron and Theo about it, we all agreed it needs to be done properly. So the Hawker 4000 is just on hold until we can get it programmed properly. So, after making a bunch of prop aircraft, and while Theo was busy texturing the DC-3, I had very little to do, so I started work on a Cessna Citation II sometime in November last year. It's quite far along now and shouldn't take much longer to finish.

    Engines mounted to high or different engine housings?

    Making a new normal map with reduced gloss will change the gloss for the props. It's possible to do, but will require some trial and error. And yes, the texture for the flat section around the beacon is on the horizontal tail. (Wasn't me who textured it like that. It was the texture guy that was with us back then.)

    Cessna Citation and other things.

    For now, all focus is on the TBM 900 I'm working on. I spoke to Jim yesterday, actually, about the Citation. If all goes well, it'll be better than what we already have. Unfortunately, it won't be out this year.

    There is a Prop texture, but when the engines are running, the prop disc in the root folder of the Saab is what is being shown. You could make your own prop disc, but you would need to make it separate from our one.

    Thanks Dave. Much appreciated.

    Did you meet any of these criteria...

    Are you properly configured? Flaps are down?

    Power levers constantly walk forward

    So the plugin DEFINITELY killed the Garmin and autopilot??

    Power levers constantly walk forward

    Interesting, to say the least. Thanks for the zip. I'm not sure there's much, if anything, Jim can do on our end, as it's obviously in their code. But if it happens on other systems, we now have something to go back to our customers with. Thanks again
  11. Can you please post your Log.txt and GizmoLog.txt files in here. They are found in your root X-Plane folder. Post them immediately after loading the Saab, and no other aircraft, as they get written again when you reload.

    How do I update nav-data for the GNS530?

    Sorry for the late reply. As mentioned above, it's just the stock X Plane GPS. Nothing special about it.

    Reference speeds, used fuel, and power lever detents

    We came across many things we questioned as to why it would be done a certain way. It's definitely a unique aircraft.

    Reference speeds, used fuel, and power lever detents

    1. Should be in the doc's, but if they're not, I'll see if I can find them in the official documentation and maybe post them somewhere. 2. Just the way it is in the real thing. 3. During flight, the WoW (Weight on Wheels) switch, which is linked to the different areas on the throttle console, prevents the throttles from going below idle. This is a safety measure implemented by Saab. While on the ground, you can bring the levers back to GRD Idle due to the WoW switch being engaged.

    Glas Textures after Update

    This has already been mentioned and we've found a few workarounds for it. We'll post something shortly.

    Basic Empty Weight and Performance

    I'll look into the weights a little more and run a few tests, then come back with a possible fix.

    Tested on my machine as well. All levers stay where they are.

    https://www.pcworld.com/article/2953978/displays/use-windows-10s-individual-display-scaling-to-perfect-your-multi-monitor-setup.html Make sure you choose 100% scaling.

    No. You can install it in any folder. So just to confirm, you double click the installer, it asks you for your email and password (same email and password as your X-Aviation account), you enter those, and that error message comes up?

    No Response From X-Aviation Support

    Understood. For future reference, you know to just submit 1 ticket, and you will be seen to. They try to reply within a 3 day period, but sometimes it can take longer. I think I've seen this before. I think the value you need to enter is your password or email (or both). It looks like you have scaling at something greater than 100%. Can you please change your scaling to 100% and see if you can then enter the email and password to your account. It should install after that.

    Please don't submit more than 1 ticket. Doing so will kill the first one, and the 2nd one will go to the back of the line. What's the problem?

    Saab 340A 1.5.1 window reflection

    The glass has been completely reworked from scratch. The previous glass you described, had the green tint on it to show that it's "there". Glass was a lot more difficult to create for other X Plane versions. Because of X Plane PBR rendering, I got rid of the tint, made it a more neutral color, as it is on the real aircraft, and made it completely PBR. The way it reflects on the inside and outside is exactly the same. I'm guessing the reason you're not seeing as much reflection on the outside is because there are a lot more objects inside to reflect, than the outside.

    1.5.1 Update Observations

    1. Not sure this should be happening. Others were complaining that they're stuck adjusting in 100's of feet. We'll look into it, though. 2. Weird. I'll take a look and a small update will come out soon if it's an issue. 3. I can turn the reflections down. I'll see about just uploading a new texture for this.
