TFDi Design 717 Approaching Version 1.1

717 Wingnacl

For the past year, TFDi Designs have been pushing themselves to create an incredible product that the whole community will enjoy. When their 717 product released, it had the makings to be a great aircraft, but there were some flaws that stopped it from being so. However, listening the insurmountable amount of feedback, the team have pushed more and more updates via their Community Opt-In Beta system. This tool enabled people to truly try out new features and fixes with the caveat that it’s not fully stable. With this in mind, Collin from the team gave an update regarding the next stable version: 1.1.

When the next version of the TFDi Design 717 is released, it will feature everything that the Community Opt-In beta version contains as well as a host of new features. This includes a brand new exterior texture overhaul and a paint kit, as well as new cabin lighting and WING/NACL lights in P3Dv4. The team will also supply a brand new re-written documentation guide detailing all the systems and an FMS guide.

TFDi Designs Update 717 to Version 1.0.8.0

717_tfsd_8

TFDi Designs have worked tirelessly over the past 6 months to update and bring their rendition of the 717 up to the community’s standards. Since the release of the Boeing aircraft back in December 2016, TFDi have released numerous bug-fixing updates, entrusted the community to test new features and provided regular updates on their progress. It has been a challenging road for the team. With the release of version 1.0.8.0, the aircraft has received a huge number of fixes and additions, vastly improved from the original release.

The number of changes is absolutely massive, with things like T/D information, added additional functionality to the FMS, added several alerts, CO ROUTE support, support for place.bearing/distance waypoints and so much more added or changed.

Further to this, the team addressed questions such as “where is the paint kit” and “what about Prepar3D V4 support”? Both of these are described as “short term goals”, with finishing touches being added to both elements before being made public. The modelling of the exterior aircraft is being put through the final touches and a few other CTD scenarios are being fixed before the final push is made.

Once everything is complete, there will still be ongoing updates, but some of their time will be focused on future projects. What those projects are, well, we’ll find out in due time.

They also wanted to drop a quick line to say if you’ll be attending FlightSimCon (June 10th and 11th), to stop by booths 207 and 208. We’ll be there as well so we’ll be sure to get the best information.
