The Radios are not working on the latest version of Flightgear 2020.1.1. The numbers on the radios doesn't show up.

Could someone take a look into this??

Regards!!

They work on my version of the Twin Otter on FG 2020.1.1 (Ubuntu 18.01). Ensure you turn up the radio brightness on the right side of the overhead panel.

Hi paju1986, besides what SurferTim has mentioned, you might also what to make sure this switch (see link below) is turned on.

On FG 2018.3.6, the landing lights don't appear to function, even with ALS enabled and all shaders and stuff set to max. Not a big deal, but makes it a bit difficult to see at night.

ALS Landing lights work only on asphalt and concrete surfaces. Requires setting adjustments.
Select Menu -> View -> Rendering Options
Enable "Custom Settings" under "Shader Effects".
Select "Shader Options" and increase "Landmass" setting.

I checked to make sure the settings were correct (they were) and same result. However, the landing lights do appear to work with the Pirate version, just not the default, which is sort of odd. Oh well.

Pirate version is at https://github.com/SurferTim/dhc6p
The FG hangar version was updated with my version, but not completely.

P.S. You can install both the standard hangar DHC6 and the PirateAir models on the same computer. The folder names are different.

I added a second ADF receiver to the Twin Otter, both the FGADDON version and the PirateAir/SurferTim Version of the aircraft.

My primary post about the modification and the download link for the files is in the development / aircraft section of the forum.

Here is the link to the post:
