This aircraft has not been released to the public yet, right? I can't find any place to download it. I'd love to test it and provide feedback.
We have not released anything yet, and when we do it'll be free. As to testing, we have enough folks on the team finding issues that at this time we don't need any more help.

Thank you for your interest though!

I know it's free and yet, I find myself thinking for ways to steal my wife's jewelry without her finding out about it in order to pay for an update. I am SO BAD!!

Community A-4E: January 2018 Update

Hi everyone!

Tiny update this month: Cockpit lighting.

Thanks to some tips from Cobra847 (thanks!) on the technique, we were finally able to sort out variable intensity cockpit lighting.

A bit of background, though. First, there's a set of white flood lights controlled by a rheostat on right side of the cockpit wall. These floods are quite bright, and there's one on each side, plus two white floods under the front glareshield pointing down over the front console.

Additionally, on the right rear console is a set of interior lighting controls for the instruments and consoles. One rheostat controls the intensity of the instrument backlighting, and a second one controls the intensity of the console lettering backlighting. And finally, there's a 3-position switch to control the intensity of a set of 8 red flood lamps that are enabled whenever the console lettering is being illuminated.

With the 2.5 drop, we still need a bunch of tuning and work, but we thought we could show some in-progress cockpit shots so you can get a feel for what the white and red floods will look like. This was just the floods, not the backlighting, so please excuse the incomplete nature of these systems.

First, the red floods:



...and an early shot of the white side floods. In this photo, the glareshield white floods had not yet been implemented:



A lot of last minute tweaks are being made, and hopefully we can make a small video in the next few days to show off where the lighting is at.

Thanks everyone for your support!

Hahaha. As level said, just to the lighting system.

We were right in the middle of lighting and some cockpit re-wrapping and retexturing when 2.5 became available, and we figured it was better to show a rough picture or two instead of waiting another week or so for the final lighting tweaks.
