Hi :)I flew your MD-83 last night, and I was very happy! :) It looks so realistic!

The MD-83 looks great--I like the default Alaska paint....Noticed the fan blades on the engines don't move in either the internal or external views.... Was that by design?Congrats on the release, and many thanks for what SGA does for the hobby!-John

Hey John,Yes that's by design. On this particular engine (the JT8D-219 I think), the 1st stators are fixed, hence they aren't animated. I don't know how much modeling work it'd take to animate the 2nd stators, but you can't really see them anyway when the engine is running...here's a good pic to illustrate:http://www.airliners.net/open.file/304668/L/Stand by for more paints soon. My Delta MD-88 is uploaded and should be available shortly.http://www.flightsimnetwork.com/dcforum/DC...mID8/34496.htmlRegards,Steve Dra

GREAT work Steve! :) The stator in the inlet are Inlet Guide Vanes (IGV). The first stage compressor behind that assembly would be more correctly referred to as a rotor, rather than a stator. :)semantics...

Thanks for all your comments guys/gals! We'll be releasing a patch/update to the model shortly that will adress some of the issues people have been noticing.Be on the lookout for all of our repaints too for the MD-83. We've got a lot of them, so we're still uploading. You'll be able to get the model at flightsim.com, simviation, and a couple other popular websites.Be sure to check out our forums for a link to a really cool and fully functional MD-83 panel with fully functioning overhead!

"Thanks for all your comments guys/gals! We'll be releasing a patch/update to the model shortly that will adress some of the issues people have been noticing."I must be blind Jon.... Other than the fan issue which Steve Edumacated me on, I think it looks perfect...

There's a couple polygons missing in various places, plus we've made a few more tweaks to the FDE. We also added/fixed some of the lights on the model. Just some minor stuff we want to fix in order to say the model is next to perfect. ;-)

Great Model. Glad to hear about fixing the light issues. Maybe you are aware of this or maybe not but I have noticed the wings are lighted up where the leading edge slats are at night for some reason. It is normal behind the wing so it looks realistic behind the wing but has this glowing wing in front. I don't think it is my graphics card because my other jets are fine at night. Perhaps I will show a screen later of this issue.I also did notice a rapid accelation and it is difficult to keep it under or at 250kts below 10,000ft. I am somewhat questioning the FDE but looks like you will be addressing some issues with the FDE as well. Visually during the daytime it looks fantastic.
