Good morning, everyone,

I'm staying on the ERJ 145 wire since it's him. Since a few days I decided to add a few things (after discussion with Dilbert). I have just put online on FGAddon and on my website the version under development. It's up to you. Of course I still have to make all the buttons, controllers, switches etc functional, but the 3D is made for 85% :)

Hi Helijah,

the new cockpit looks much nicer, thanks! Are you interested in feedback?

Hello D-ECHO,

Updated 2 minutes of ERJ 145

I've been spending a lot of time on this panel over the last five days. I have added the CitationX autopilot, modified the MFD and PFD (yes I admit I don't like display systems that are not in "3D" lol. I integrated the map in the MFD (added a small "Map" button).

But, because there is a "but", I don't know how the autopilot works on the CitationX. So indeed, if someone can do some testing and check that everything works properly. On my side I continue to analyze and modify everything I can. Maybe one day the buttons and levers on the ceiling lights will be functional too :)

Unfortunately I don't have much time this week, but I can look into it a bit deeper next week and give some more feedback.

For now:
* the left rear cargo door should open similar to the CRJ700 by being pushed in and then "rolled up". You can see it (in the opened state) here: https://youtu.be/QhMFlXEVlps?t=98 I can't find a video showing the opening of said door, but you can compare it to the rear cargo door of the CRJ. For some drawings, see p.48 here: http://www.smartcockpit.com/docs/EQUIPM ... SHINGS.pdf
* the service door (right passenger door) opens by rotating forward instead of coming down like the airstair (left passenger door). See p.43 of mentioned PDF
* the throttle levers, when idle, are in the 3d model shown in the "MAX REV" position

It's very nice to see more and more coming along, keep it up :)

Hi D-ECHO

Indeed the emergency door (on the right) open on the side, on the other hand the luggage compartment, even if I made a mistake of direction, I don't have the impression that it goes up while turning...Look :

That said, I've created a cargo door that looks bigger according to the plans. I'll keep your idea of making the door go up and turn up :)

P.S.: That's the problem of a lot of people here. Believing they know because they've found one piece of information and one piece of information only. Personally I'm looking for dozens of information from different sources because planes like the rest exist in a lot of versions and with a lot of differences :) Then I make choices (and personally I like to find the very first versions and not the evolutions. ).

P.S. 2 : Modifications carried out on the doors and motor levers. Thanks again D-ECHO

Yw :)

Are you aware that the images you sent are taken from the related business jet, not the erj? At least as it seems

Hi D-ECHO

It's not a big deal :) If you do an update of the ERJ you'll see that I modified the animation as you pointed out :) It's true that it's nicer as well
