    Posted: December-22-2011 at 12:21pm
A couple of years ago while getting my private pilot's license, I reworked the Flight 1 172R using the FSX default G1000.  This helped me with running through my basic preflight checklists, using the G1000 Nav/Coms, and practicing maneuvers with a panel like I saw in real life.  Well, after receiving a couple of emails from forum members regarding this configuration, I decided I would try to upload it to the Flight 1 File Library (if there is interest) but with some stipulations:

1.  I made these modifications years ago and am NOT a professional repainter or programer.  This in no way compares to the outstanding work that you would expect from a Flight 1 product. 

2.  I only used the default G1000 for a few months since I was flying a NAVIII 172 with the GFC700 autopilot and decided to purchase an aftermarket G1000 with Flight Level Change like what I was flying (the default uses an older G1000 with the KAP140).  I only mention this because I have had to go back and try to "rebuilt" this with default gauges so there is a chance I have forgot to do something correctly.  In other words, I would offer this up as a "beta" version.  There is a chance I screwed something up and it way require a fix or 2.

3.  The panel night textures are less than perfect.  I will try to revise them but I wouldn't be able to promise any updated ones for a few weeks.

With all that said, let me know your thoughts.  Here are a couple pics of what it looks like:

Hey man!

Im flying this model now and for real and I'm looking hard to find a link to download this C172S G1000, but I couldn't...

Can you give me a link to download yours and instructions to install it?

Let me know

Thanks!

To be honest, I never uploaded it cause I only had a couple people express interest and those that did, I sent it to them directly.  If you want to send me your email, I can do the same for you.

After a couple of private messages, I went ahead and uploaded this package to Flight 1's File Library.  It make take the administrators a little time to get it posted but be looking for it in the near future.

In an effort to encourage everyone to dust off this lovely little bird, I will also be uploading some repaints for this plane in the coming days.

How hard would it be to convert this to FS9?  I attempted to do this myself with the Mindstar G1000 and the FS9 version, but since the panel is just slightly different and I don't have the artistic talent to draw my own background and placards for the switches and stuff I was unable to complete it.  And unfortunately FSX uses different file extentions than FS9 does so it's not plug and play.  I can write the panel.cfg file I really just need the textures (and maybe some of the panel light switches/knobs.) if you can't just rename the files for FS9.
Politicians, like diapers should be changed frequently; and for the same reason.

Crashdriver,

I have to be honest that I'm not exactly sure what it would take.  I don't have FS9 so I'm not even sure what conflicts there are.  If you wanted to give me a list of the gauges and switches that were not directly compatible, I could see what I could do to replace them with FS9 compatible ones, and then make any adjustments to the textures to match.  Obviously, if there are texture issues with the Mindstar G1000, I couldn't really help you there since I don't have that.  Hopefully that isn't where your texture issues are. 

So I guess if you can give me a little more specific list of your exact issues, I'll do my best.

Mark,

I will admit I told you the problem without actually trying it first.  So when I downloaded the update from Flight1's library at this link http://library.flight1.net/?p=5050 I got something completely different.  It appears to be a repaint you did of an older 172 on the Flight1 model. 

So either I have bad investigative skills or the link in the library got corrupted.  Sorry for the delay.

Crashdriver,

You are correct!  I tried the download myself and it did download a different repaint I did.  I will try to re-upload the original file and see if they can fix it.  I'll let you know if I here anything from Flight 1 Library.
