Reverser sleeves open progressively based on amount of reverse selected rather than fully open whenever reverse is selected as per reality.

Image shows idle reverse selected. Sleeve should be fully open not just cracked.

The reverser is an axis, so it must work as is for hardware compatibility.

Door definititons appear to be too high, this is a SODE jetway at EPWA. The same happens with GSX stairs so I'm unsure where the issue lies.

To PDB,

Your door is high because the setting in GSX if you are using it has to be set to the aircraft.  This usually will allow GSX to custom suite the adjust of the AC.

I also had this issue except it only occurred at some gates. At SFO it aligned at one gate but didn't align at a different gate.

While I am at it, is there any way to configure GSX to the aircraft? When using GSX, both catering trucks come to the very front of the aircraft but not anywhere near the doors. Also, the stairs which are meant to service the back service door (4L) come in between 1L and 2L. Thanks!

This is cop out, There should be no correlation between the exterior model animation, which should have literally two positions, closed and open, and the throttle axis position. Reverse selected, sleeve opens - Not in reverse? sleeve closes. Majority of other developers at various price points have been getting this right for years now (Same with the panel lights at all times). To say it's impossible and wont be changed is just silly and extremely disrespectful for the customers who have paid an exorbitant amount of money for what continuously reveals itself to be a glorified default fsx plane. 

I reported the same bug to Aerosoft when they first released their CRJ, They acknowledged and fixed it as  seen here  http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/125452-reverse-sleeve-wont-open/&tab=...

Try to be more like that rather than deflecting  Smiley

On the list  Smiley

Dynamic Lighting-Strobe (white)

Good evening,

I noticed tonight when flying from KMSP-PANC that I am able to see the flash of the white strobe on the panel (Captain VC) when they are on.

Granted, I have never flown a 757 in real life, but I imagine the strobes dont light up the cockpit. Is there a way to shrink the footprint of the flash?

It is very common to have the flash of the strobes in the flight deck, especially on the 'wingletted' jets.

I fly the A320 series and the first jets to roll out with sharklets had serious strobe issues in the flight deck, so much so, we had to use the sun visors!

BEYOND  THIS  POINT  PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE HOTFIX 1.001 INSTALLED

The 1.001 is build with SDK 4.1 so please make sure you are on P3D4 version 4.1.

Do not use any flights you've saved with the 757 1.0.

Gaps in the wing model especially on the starboard side, although there is also a slight gap in the outer joint on the port side too. This can be seen from inside the cabin and can be really noticeable under certain light conditions

Regards

Hi Guys,

Noticed a slight issue with the dynamic night lighting, photo attached. You can see that the dynamic lighting looks like its in sections along the fuselage side.

These are the fuselage frames. Not a bug but a feature.

Good news...It appears to have been isolated. I have not been able to duplicate it. If I see it again, I will get a video of it.

Strobes different

Hello,

don´t known if that function is right but the two strobes are not simultan together. Also it looks that the left strobes are 2 lights and the right only one.

All strobes are fine. The timing may depend on the computer's performance.
