Looks pretty good. I haven't flown your MD-80 in a while (usually fly the Coolsky one when I do feel like flying the Mad Dogs which, considering I prefer flying regional, doesn't happen much).

One thing I do remember though was that on your model with certain viewpoints on the exterior you could very easily see the division between one sides textures and another. Would it be possible to correct that?

Looking forward, alrot.
When you're working on it, could you not take a look at the 2d panel?
I got the fsnd md83 with this 2d

But had an old fs9 md80 panel, and that suits me better

I do not see that ,maybe because my monitors are old (NO LCDs) are your setting are in widescreen

Image

make a copy of you panel.cfg and at the end you wills see these

[Default View]
X=0
Y=0
SIZE_X=8192
SIZE_Y=3384


If the other panel its being working fine for you
Copy and paste these values view and replace mine for the one that are working fine

:D :D :D I find the Original Voices of the MD-83 (*) just like in the video , are already instaled and working perfectly

(*)Boeing Uses Other Diferent voice

I rename the Sound Folder for not allow to delete the FSX 737-800 Upgraded VC 's voice ,It will has its own name, so in one hand you will have your normal 737-800 boeing's voice and at the other anopther folder having the MC Donnell Douglas voice

I'm not comepletely sure but couldn't you use a varient of the rain gauge  to do something with snow/icing on the windows?

I am not sure but does it create the rain effect when it raining or when its percipitating?

Ok Thanks to bass Pic ,I got my ideas of how to distribute the 2d panel properly ,to improve it ,because It was so pity

before

now

how ever fix a 2d panel probably its the easiest thing to do using FSX Panel Studio software ..and it isn't the Updates I would want to do, Neither to remap the whole airplane again

alrot, are you using FS Panel Studio for this and your 737 VC upgrade? Looking to do the same to the stock CRJ and King Air, mainly VC only work as I don't fly with the 2D anymore.

This is from a PMDG jetstream:
http://www.mutleyshangar.com/reviews/rob/j41/img/2.jpg
Maybe it could help?

I was thinking:
You mainly see it on slower jets and props,I'm not sure if its possible but maybe you could make it so that the ice disapears when you go past say;260KIAS...

Again,I am not sure as I don't know much about designing...

see? this is what I mean ,to make the snow also dissapear for speed I would also have to do another XML part which is too complex

the windshield will show on Snow  then It would have to go away at 250 ias but below that speed IF wipers are on clean the area ..too complex jetprop ,I don't think its going to go  :(

It was just an idea.
Anyways,it doesn't usualy snow above 10000 feet and below that you usualy don't/shouldn't(?) fly above 250 KIAS...

I don't really know of any other "systems" that you could implement that isn't there already, but I'd would be nice to have some carpet or some other texture rather than the plain brownish color.
