Maintenance Pack for the Carenado C337H Skymaster

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

My upload of the Maintenance Pack for the Carenado C337H Skymaster has been accepted and is now available in the AVSIM Library.

 

Edit: The old version has been removed. Please look at later posts to find updated versions.

 

It currently includes the following modifications:

Cessna337_1_C.bmp, Cessna337_1_C_night.bmp:
  The label for the landing light switch is changed from "LOG" to "LDG".

Cessna337_3_C_night.bmp:
  The labels for the Prop Synchrophaser were displayed twice with a
  small offset when the panel light was enabled. The modification
  corrects this and adds illumination for the label "Phasing".

Gauges_337B.bmp, Gauges_337B_night.bmp:
  The right Collins gauge (NAV2) is now correctly labeled "Nav" instead
  of "Comm". Thanks to Bert Pieké for the inspiration by providing an
  earlier fix. I recreated his fix from scratch and added improved night
  lighting.

Gauges_337BXP.bmp, Gauges_337BXP_night.bmp:
  Same as above modification for the right Collins gauge, but with
  textures for the Reality XP GNS.

Please download the file and look at the included README.txt for installation instructions. Or you can use the ZipDive feature of the AVSIM Library to read it before downloading, or to view some before and after screenshots like this one:

Some background information:

I used DXTbmp to extract the bitmaps from the files I wanted to modify into a file named norm.bmp, then I used Gimp to edit them.

When exporting them from Gimp as norm.bmp again, I had to select "Do not write color space information" in the "Compatibility Options", and "24 bits: R8 G8 B8" in the "Advanced Options".

After reloading norm.bmp in DXTbmp, I had to disable "Include when saving" in the MipMaps box before saving them.

 

I hope this will bring you some additional joy when flying this already nice aircraft.

 

Regards,

Thomas

Great work Thomas! I love the 337 and often fly it.

Thank you for the praise!

 

I was positively surprised that until now already 280 people downloaded it. It seems we are not the only 337 fans :)

    Adjust panel light for the EGT needles, and add some light to the wet
    compass to make it readable.

    Fixed some labels in the audio panel: HF->BOTH, ADF1->ADF, ADF2->DME
