You can send them, sure. Although one quick suggestion, can you darken up the livery a bit? US Airways Express planes are never light like that. :)

No problem, it's already done, I must have chosen my colour on a reflection when I did it. :oops:

Here is a complete set of my liveries corrected for stripe alignment and my paintkit which has the nose-cone fixed as well: 8)

I'll take a look at 439Tiger's liveries when I have some time. ;)

Cockpit texturing finished (colors subject to change):

Oh, that, and the new primary flight display! If you look closely, you'll see some graphics changes from the original CRJ900 PFD.

Still not done yet, need to add the altimeter readout and some autopilot indicators. :)

*sigh*

You have a development version! I never intended anybody to download it in the first place! While I have no problem with people downloading from my Gitorious repository, I do expect them to understand that they will get a development version that will reek of bugs and incomplete features. Please understand that I am doing this all for free, so I work how I want- and as you can see, by this thread I hope you are reading, the cockpit is under construction and is NOT completed yet. So please, I respectfully ask you to stop inquiring about the cockpit and the downloads. There is no cockpit because it's still under construction. There are no official downloads because I haven't announced one yet, and there's not one on the wiki.

In the 900 model there are some gaps in the cockpit, e.g. if you look in the rear corners. I can upload a screenshot, if you prefer. :)

And the buttons for e.g. APU have now visual feedback. I also would recommend a "click" sound-feedback.

Question: When will the switches for APU GEN and GEN 1/2 functional?

I use master branch of fgdata.

I'm aware of that. ;) The -700 (and the new -900) will have a completely new cockpit without those holes.

On the to-do list. See the ATR 72 for the system I plan to implement.

Yup, I will implement a proper startup sequence this time.

Instrumentation update. PFD, completed. MFD, in progress. 8) This time around, there will be additional pages and the "wxradar" instrument will be implemented for traffic display and TCAS abilities. (wxradar can also display storm clouds, but that feature is broken in the latest Git.)

Today, I (mostly) finished the multi-function display. It has 6 different pages (technically, they are "nav formats"):
  • 1 - Compass rose
  • 2 - Navaid sector map (not implemented)
  • 3 - TCAS
  • 4 - FMS position map
  • 5 - FMS planning map (not implemented)
  • 6 - WX radar (not working, awaiting wxradar improvements)
As you can see in the sample images below, the pages are currently switched using the buttons below the screen. In the future, they will be switched using the "format and range" knob on the display control panel. I think I might use the buttons to open and close 2d popup panels, since the 3d ones are so d*mn small! :evil:

Compass rose:

Navaid sector map (not very accurate, but nonetheless useful):
Image

The TCAS. Against all odds, I managed to implement wxradar!
Image

Next up is the EICAS, or the CRJ900/CRJ1000 stretches- whatever I'm in the mood for. :)

Looking forward (I'm not pushy here :) ) to see that all. CRJ-900 becomes my next favorite airplane (besides the A320-211) because it is forgiving (little mistakes) and have nice features like two front doors, jetway support and passenger view (thanks for all the interior work!).

One thing, the cargo bay. Maybe you can add that on your TODO list? I think only one airplane I flew had it.

And one more:
When I autostart (or manual) the engine, shut it down again (with no running APU) and start it again, it doesn't work. So this is what I did:
- Hit main switch
- Start APU (wait until 100%)
- Hit START for engine 1/2
- Wait until fully started
- Hit STOP for APU
- Hit STOP for engine 1/2
- Wait until fully stopped
- Hit START for APU (wait until 100%)
- Hit START for engine 1/2
- Nothing happens
