Nice work, the new views look nice :wink: And off course, the jetways are awesome :D

Could there maybe be a way to walk around the cabin? So like the Walk view on the 744. It's not a must, but it would just be nice to have it :)

The 747 has walk view? Where! :)

EDIT: The now deleted idea won't work. Scrapped. :(

Okay, I've implemented walk view! It works for pilot view, passenger view, model view, and copilot view. It will be cool to walk throughout the cabin when it's textured- I'll try and do that now! :D

You work fast! Can't wait to see it :) Is the cabin going to be textured in the livery file? Like BAW-cabin.png or something? Then we could make custom chair 'designs' for different airlines.

Should be possible. I'll look into it. :) (Ideally, no changes to the existing liveries should be necessary.)

In most aircraft, you press w and W to walk forward/backward depending on your view direction.

The cabin is now textured:

Image

It's quite fun to take a stroll through it with the new walk system! :)

Livery creators can also use their own seat textures (this is a test by the way, I'm not aware of any airline that actually uses red-colored seats).

Image

Simply specify whatever texture you want using the <texture3> property.
Code: Select all
<livery>
<name type="string">US Airways</name>
<texture>A320-AWE.png</texture>
<texture2>FanDisk.png</texture2>
<texture3>cabin-default.png</texture3>
</livery>

How About Qantas, Kingfisher and Malaysian Airlines... PanAm and Continental used to wear those seat colors! :wink:

You're really good with the xml's by the way! Congrat's on your great work! :D

I see where the little bits from the CRJ-200 went to...

Anyways, I should have my new YASim ready later today. I'll explain my test that I did last night...

I was testing the service ceiling. The A320's normal service ceiling is 39000 feet, so I was trying to see if it could reach that at 100 feet per minute climb at 90% power, the definition of service ceiling. So, I went up to 38000 feet and the throttle was hovering at about 89%...so I thought I would have to increase it a bit. Then a headwind struck, and it gave me enough headwind to climb all the way up to 39000 without getting to 90%. So I don't know to regard that as a good cruise configuration, or if I should strengthen it a bit more.

By the way, Afriqiyah Airways uses green seats with video boards...you should put video boards in the seats!

let the video in the seats be attached to the airlines xml for more realistic effects :)
for instance let me show you what i mean
Code: Select all
<livery>
<name type="string">Jetblue</name>
<texture>A320-JBU.png</texture>
<texture2>FanDisk.png</texture2>
<texture3>cabin-default.png</texture3>
<texture4>video-moniters.png</texture4>
</livery>

something of that manner
remember this: when in doubt ask skyop.

I'm hesitant to add in backseat monitors, as a lot of low-cost carriers use the A320 and obviously they don't have them. It should be possible to make them toggleable through the Airbus A320 menu, what do you think of that?
