3D aircraft model updates
« on: April 17, 2010, 11:18:15 AM »
Hi good morning all,

Can anyone advise if there are any updates for the aircraft models in 3D please?

Unfortunately there seems to be quite a few missed out - for example an A380 came up as a two engined jet with no livery.

I can appreciate the 3D version is new and superb it is too but would be nice to pick up current types and the oldies 'IL62' for example.

Is there any way that each aircraft on screen can be displayed as a model rather than the balloon? Would be nice to have an aircraft scene more than party balloons flying around the sky?

Any info would be gratelly appreciated.

Have a great weekend all,

Cheers Dave
Best regards Dave.

What you see is determined by the 3D Preference settings, and these can be changed independently for MyFlights and Network.

Maximum = 3D models

Medium = 2D shapes

Minimum = coloured globes

What you select will depend on the performance of your PC and speed of your Internet connection.  I tend to have MyFlights set to Maximum and Network set to Minimum.

Many thanks Allocator, that makes perfect sense so will adjust accordingly.

I've just purchased a new laptop this afternoon but it's not finding the RB box when connecting the USB, any ideas on this one please?

PC is running Windows 7 and although all else is running fine may be just a glitch .. will perservere though.

Best regards,

Dave.

I was wondering about that, where are located at present? I've carried out a windows update so far.

I've got the 2D version running a treat but the 3D version I purchased yesterday via the download has reverted to 2D using the same down loaded exe file.

Any ideas at all ?

Cheers for your help.

Dave.
Best regards Dave.
