HOW TO PUT THE COLA CAN AND THE PMDG PEN?

Welcome to the forum Henrique.

 

I believe they're randomized. Some flights, you'll see them; some flights you won't.

 

Also, we ask that you put your full name in your actual posts. I'm guessing your username is your full name, but it makes it a lot easier to check for the name if it's always in the same spot for everyone.

Yeah, I ended up changing out the texture for the soda, but kind of hard to test it out to see how it turned out when it never shows up.

If you have chase plane or something like it you can move into the cup holders. That's where they hide when they are not showing.

Yup, I amended the texture to make it a can of beer, but it seems to never show up now, guess the airline don't approve of drinking on the job, but after seeing Denzel Washington land that knackered MD in Flight when he's half cut, I think they need to revise that policy lol

I don't.

I don't believe that it'll allow you to go through the aircraft geometry though. I could be wrong.

Move your viewpoint from the default position to the area where the soda can hides.

But as Kyle says, you might not be able to move through the aircraft geometry with those. Give it a try though. :)

Found it. Completely misunderstood what you were saying initially, thought I had to go click on the soda from somewhere else, didn't know you meant it was under the cup holder. Of course, it's also half buried in the flight deck floor, so that doesn't help, either.

Mine has been replaced with a martini glass and one half-eaten blue cheese olive skewered by a wooden toothpick.

I figured PMDG Jet Cola was a Jet-A flavored energy drink that would double as a mild laxative after an airline meal.

I believe they're randomized. Some flights, you'll see them; some flights you won't.

I noticed that they are not changing on my 747. there is only a pen on FO side. also oil quantity is the same every flight although the option is enables.

I figured it out. This is tied into the panel state. There is a section called [MiscSystems], under that, you'll see props. Just play around with the numbers. Setting it to 2 puts the soda on the Captain's side and the pen on the First Officer's side. My question is, how many different combinations are there, and what do each of the settings do. I tried to see if I could get the soda to appear in both cup holders up front, but my observation is that nothing happens past 10. So what options are available.

Is it possible to make it an option for them not to display? In a future update perhaps?

Try setting it to either 0 or 3. It was on 3 for me, and I didn't see it show up at all.

I have never seen the can. Pen always on FO side, no randomization...

Hi Kevin,

Where is located this "MiscSystems" section?

This feature is in good fun I understand, but the eye-point display on the center window not being modelled because there are "too many animations" is disappointing. In a future patch can I choose between the fun little options and the eyepoint ball device? Thank you - David Lee

Interesting, did not know about this eye-point display. There are many compromises I am not happy about with in this plane but then again, there are many that I am happy with so the cup is still half full and not half empty :)

An option being available is an animation. Giving you the option to choose options would not only not solve the issue, it would make a giant mess in the process.

It's in the panel state. Go into the Panel State folder, pick one, then run a search to find it. Alternatively, you can just search for "props" and it would be the first one to come up.

See my above post. You'd have to change it in the panel state yourself. Try props=2 rather than whatever number it's currently set at.

More realistic to have a big water bottle there, beside the all important garbage bag in setting up your nest, water helps fend off dehydration at high altitude for hours. Coke will rob it, though I have to admit I like the Coke better.
