Carenado Phenom 300 in P3Dv4

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

I just bought the phenom 300 from carenado, switching from the phenom 100.

I have two questions:

-Why is my PFD colors looking so ugly ?

-Is there a way to turn on cockpit lights without turning on cabin lights ?

 

Thank you !

Thank you !

The PFD is the way they made it for P3DV4. Looks like your panel back lights are on. There is a panel flood light as well. The knob to turn it on is just above the ALT button on the autopilot.

Why are they better in the Phenom 100? We all wish we knew. You would have to ask Carenado...but they think it is because we modified the gauges. Search this forum there is at least one thread on the issue.

I am sorry I gave you the wrong forum to search. It should be the Carenado support forum for the Phenom 300. Here is a link to a thread you will find interesting. It has some discussion of the issue.

I'll move this topic to the Carenado forums to make it easier for the OP.

Carenado chose a different bitmap for the 300.

I replaced it with the one from my FSX install, but you may be able to replace it with the one from your 100.
