172SP G1000 Panel Appearance Revision package

Recommended Posts

   The Carenado G1000 in the C172SP Skyhawk appears to have been developed for use in one of their 'high performance' aircraft. This collection of files will adjust the appearance of the PFD and MFD to better match the screens as seen in the Cessna Skyhawk. The changes work in both SVS and non-SVS modes. 

   There are two corrected faults. The Vertical Speed scale is changed from plus/minus 4000 feet to plus/minus 2000 feet and the GPS CDI (the magenta line) course indicates properly on the PFD. 

Some of the visual changes:

1.  Solid (non-banded) blue and brown PFD background. Horizon position adjusted.
2.  Removed the Speed Selector box above the airspeed tape. 
3.  Brown hash-marked segment removed from the Altitude tape and replaced with 'clear'. 
4.  Altitude tape lightened. 
5.  'DME' removed, 'ALERTS' added on the PFD softkeys bar.
6.  Corrected titles (GLIDE, Vx, Vy) in the TMR/REF box. 
7.  Where possible, green and magenta colours were 'standardized' across the PFD and MFD.
And
8.  A Cessna logo is added to the yoke. 
9.  The blue colour is revised in the Standby Attitude Indicator - for day and night.

Send a PM [private message] with an e-mail address to get the package. This was tested in FSX. Feedback and suggestions would be appreciated.

All, I tried this out by sending a PM to Ranger75 (aka Wayne S.) and was really happy with his mod and the additional support he provided. Installing the mod was straightforward. Although it did require some familiarity with file management and editing .xml files, nothing extraordinary. I had a couple of quesitons about modifying a couple of defaults and Wayne was quick to reply with all the information I could use. So, a nice mod package and a really nice guy who contributed to the community this way.

An additional change Wayne included in the package but not described above; ILS Approach Localizer (LOC) and Glideslope (GS) switch from white to green upon capture.

Thanks, Wayne!
