Captains,

This will serve as a formal forum announcement that we have released the version 1.2 update for the BN-2 Islander. All customers who have purchased the BN-2 Islander up till now have been sent an e-mail by X-Aviation with complete instructions on how to obtain your update. We have made this a very simple process! For those that purchase the BN-2 Islander from today forward, your purchased download will already be updated to version 1.2 for you.

What if I didn't get the update e-mail?

If you did not receive your update e-mail don't fret! X-Aviation has updated our system to allow all customers to update with ease, regardless of whether you received an e-mail for the update! Here's what to do:

1. Login to your X-Aviation account here: https://www.x-aviation.com/catalog/account_history.php

The following is a list of additions/fixes included:
 
Improvements / New Features:

  • New exterior textures. Improved rivets and joins and dirt. Better normal maps.
  • Updated default liveries to match new texture spec.

  • New liveries can make use of the improved blank textures and normal maps!
  • Updated interior with new panel, new seats, new fixtures, interior trim, and window frames.
  • Updated flight model with better airfoils, fuel consumption, and cruise speeds. Adjusted trim ranges and effectiveness.
  • Several FMOD improvements and bug fixes. New engines, new props, tuned flyby and so many other adjustments.

I updated to version 1.2 and the BN-2B Islander G5 displays remain black.  Popups work OK but the 3D cockpit displays are black.   I deleted the installation and tried again with a fresh install and still had the same result.

Can you make a topic for this, once there, in order to debug what is going on, we will need you to send us a copy of the X-Plane log.txt file. You can find a guide to get this file here: 

How to find the X-Plane log.txt file?
