Wonderful and many thanks! Clap

Is a P3D v4 update on the cards, dare I ask, seeing as SPs are being rolled out for the DC-8?

It's on the list, however for the 50-70 we'll require an updated gauge from an external developer who was responsible for the FMC, so I'm not sure on a timescale for that one. That won't affect the 10-40 though.

Hi

Did this Patch change the FD commandbars to the V-shaped version.
How can I get my needles back?

In P3D V4 the DC-8 is now an awesome flying wing!

Kinda fun to fly until the fix is in!

Hi JF staff, with the SP2 new package i´m seeing this "artifact" pointing to the VC with the DC8-73F:









Anybody has a clue of what it is and if it´s an issue with the model?

Besides that, two more issues:
- Flight Director switch in pilot side not working at all.
- Door maps to use with GSX all wrong. Some maps point to no existent doors.


Thanks!

Hi Flavio,

Strange, not seen that weird artifact before.

Hi
I have downloaded SP2 (Liveries) of the DC -8 but are unable to install as it states I do not have the latest version of the Dc -8. My last update on the DC 8 was Dec 2017 and I do not notice any newer updates.
Can any one advise please.
Thanks
Sundowner
