I haven't flown it much yet since I'm quite busy but what I noticed is that the displays aren't illuminated at dark (which would be expected).

The display's brightness can be controlled using the knobs to the right hand side of the PFD (The one with an artificial horizon, ASI and altimeter on it)

Ah ok, I didn't know that.
By the way, I've found the reason for the physical reverser position and am working towards adding the cockpit instruments to f100_cockpit.xml instead of fokker100.xml which will automatically also place the instruments in the F70 at the correct positions.

Alright, new version: http://home.telfort.nl/sp004798/emh/fok ... 100821.zip
1. animate the thrust reverse properly
2. move cockpit instruments to Models/f100_cockpit.xml to share them with the Fokker-70(*)
3. update some files to get the Fokker-70 in working condition again.
4. update flap positions for the Fokker-100

(*) difference in offsets compared to the previous version:
x-offset: -13.485
z-offset: 1.15

I've just tried your version - and the thrust reverse animations really work wonders when it comes to realism!

I downloaded erik's version, and I managed to fix the pushback! :)

I'll post my new version in a bit, but one question: Armchair Ace, do you want me to port the A320 light controller to your fokker? That would allow you to toggle the landing lights, nav lights, strobes, and beacon. (Although it appears that the fokker doesn't have the strobes or beacon. :P )

Serious question.

Why is it that when I tried to land this thing that it insisted on going up? I was slowing down to attempt a landing, flaps set properly, and it kept on rising up! I had to eat over half the runway, bounce violently a few times and then crash on landing due to that! :shock:

No speedbrakes/spoilers set? (if available of course)

Without any airliner would pretty much behave like you described....

Guess I didn't read the landing procedure well enough :wink:

No thanks - the Fokker already has light controls (in the OHP). Thanks for the offer, though.

I see. Well, here's my new download: fokker100-new.zip- the pushback is fixed. I believe the files I changed were fokker100.xml and fokker100-set.xml. There were some pushback definitions in the FDM and -set.xml missing.

Here's another update for the Fokker-100 and 70:
* replaced old seats with the new one.
* added (not yet animated) yokes from the Fokker-50
* added struts to the clamshells (I could really use some help to get it textured properly around that area)
* added interior to the Fokker-100
* Slightly updated nose section for the Fokker-70
