Nice Video!
A few questions:
Where is it? Gibraltar?
How do you make the Ocean look like that?
And is the bug your talking about the occilation on approach (if that was an AP approach)?
If it is, Rest assured, that is an Aeromatic FDM, and i'm in the middle of making a whole new FDM without aeromatic. In that case the AP will have to be retuned anyway.
I'm not sure why you cant see the yoke, it works for me. strange.
I'm also planning on making new sounds, with different inside and outside sound. the current sound is FG default.
Thanks for commenting.

Thanks!
1. Yes its Gibraltar - LXGB
2. Just slide the performance bar to "5" on rendering options.
3. The bug is demonstrated during touchdown. At touchdown, you will see that the main wheels touchdown before reaching the runway surface if you watch carefully.
4. As for the yoke problem, when i select the A300-600 aircraft before launching FG, i am getting an error saying i do not have the A310. That could be the issue?

Any plans to make a shaking effect :P ?

When is the last time you downloaded the A300? If it is still tied to the A310 (which i thought it wasn't) I will fix it in the next release. Off the top of my head though, you could look in /A300-600/Models/Interior/Flightgeck/Yokes for any xmls containing the word "A310" and change each instance to "A300-600". I'm not really going to be doing much until after tuesday, I will have a look then. Thanks for reporting that bug :D
The funny touch behavior will aslo be fixed in the new FDM :)
I have few things higher on my priority list than Shaking, but i might make it rattle and creak a bit :)
The aircraft also has no lights, I'm working on that as well.

Just FYI, the cockpit seems to be having an issue where these little arrows appear all over the windscreen at low speeds.

GitHub has a client specifically optimized for Windows which sets up SSH keys automatically if needed - might be a good choice if you're a Git beginner. Unfortunately, I believe that client will work only with GitHub repositories.

The official Windows client on the contrary supports all Git repositories, not only those hosted on GitHub, but is a bit more complex to set up - if you need help, I'm available.

Hi,

what was wrong with the original version? As far as I can see, you added some structure elements to the nose and some sensors, which is nice. On the other hand, there are some new problems:
* For the windows, a couple of vertices are missing, there are some holes
* The cockpit section is not connected to the fuselage any more and there´s a 9cm gap between these
* The A300/A310/A330/A340 characteristic secant-like cut-away at the windows is missing. Ok, it had a quite hard edge for the old version, but I would not like to completely remove it :-)

Here´s another good picture of the completely flat windows:

What do you think? Maybe you could try to integrate the changes to the old file instead of replacing everything.

Actually to be blunt, I couldn't use any of the new and improved fuselage, because of the reasons you stated. Also quite a few stray vertices, and it has to many objects.
(I acutally thought what happened was that the A330 nose section was "cut and pasted" into the A300 fuselage with the area around the windows edited :D )
Thanks anyway for the effort :D

Something is wrong with the download package. When extracting it I get : "Error :Archive is unknown format or damaged." Any idea?

Do you get the same error if you download it again?
