I too am having difficulty entering the N number. Only the QS is displayed.

Can you explain "entering the aircraft from the FO"?

I have tried updating the call sign on the tune page in the FMS but no luck. Ive tried "EJAxxx" "NxxxQS" and "Nxxx". 

Resolved. It uses the registration that is in the airframe state. It only works in “career” mode since “cold and dark” mode does not reference the airframe state. 

Response from the author:

Yeah unfortunately that is just how the aircraft was made but i believe a future update will fix that and you should not need to update the livery

In XP12 black lines are visible on the engines when zoomed out.
If I understood correctly this happens in xp12 when you don't have an island or extra pixels around edges of the objects.
Ps: I also find out that rivets are in misalignment with reflection on the leading edge of the wing.


Response from the author:

For the black lines when zoomed out thats a issue with xp12 beta rendering still because if you check the individual livery files you would be able to see that the white goes all the way pass the panel making sure that there would not be any pixel issue. So I'll wait for xp12 full stable release before trying to figure out whats next on that bit. Another good example of this issue is the toliss A340 fuselage sections. (see picture below)
And for the rivets misalignment on the leading edge that is how the plane was made by hotstart and i believe every paint of the challenger would have that issue as well but i did bring it up to them but if the change it we wait and see

Well done!  A Netjets paint is the one livery I really wanted for the Challenger.  Just out of curiosity, what scenery did you use for your screenshot...with the NJ hangar?  Thanks.

Response from the author:

Thanks and the hanger is DD’s KTEB at Signature South

Currently have this bird in the air! Really nicely done. Clever job making the red QS part of the texture but leaving the rest of the registration customizable, it worked well for me. Thanks! I hope you'll pant more CL60s. 

Response from the author:

Awesome much appreciated, and if you run into any issues with the registration for CPDLC stuff, in the Page 2 of Tuning on the FMC change flight ID there to add the QS part. More paints will come.

Looks Great! the only issue I have is my registration number is not displayed, I only see the red "QS" Could I be missing a windows font?

Issue fixed, I had to enter the plane from the FO then the registration appeared!

I second the request of removing the registration to be able to use this aircraft for Netjets Europe. That'd be much appreciated

Excellent livery! I've flown with this one many many times.

The X-Plane 12 has a lighting issue that causes these thick black seams on the engine cowl. They're not there when zoomed in, but they become more visible as you zoom out. I've been told it's probably because the paint needs to be extended beyond the borders of the UV islands in the texture.

It is a wonderful livery, though!
