The C-17 version 3.1 downloaded from the hanger, the cockpit is partially complete and is different to the one shown in the Facebook video shot last night.
Also on FB somebody mentions having problems flying the latest releases from FGUK due to their low FPS and the aircraft crashing before any corrections can be made.
I have the same issue (the latest releases are works of art, I can't imagine the work and hours which go into them) please could you explain further how to rem out sections in the set file to suit lower performance PC owners.
Theres very little in the current public version you can rem out that would make any difference to the FPS.
Our latest releases are getting much more detailed, but if you want the detail, there is a performance price to pay.
The version you seen in the video would be the Development version which is having a huge cockpit upgrade carried out.

If the aircraft's -set.xml file has a line in it that says <allow-toggle-cockpit>true</allow-toggle-cockpit>
you will be able to turn the entire cockpit on/off with the standard keyboard key setting 'c'.
Do a search in the aircraft's -set.xml file for <allow-toggle-cockpit> first to see if it has been set to false or 0 and change it to true. Otherwise you can add the line entirely.
This line needs to be in the "sim" section, ie: between the <sim> .. </sim> tags. But without interfering with anything else.
I normally insert it after the main </model> tag like this:
Some ways of flying without a cockpit include a HUD, a 2D-panel, the Phi interface, and WebPanels. And those are just the off-the-shelf options.
Brilliant - many thanks for that suggestion, I try out tonight.
Yes probably could do with a better PC but just added a new graphics card and doubled the memory, where do you stop.
May be a survey of FGUK member's PC may give beginners an idea of if they stand a chance with FG and a target guide to aim for.
It was a similar problem back in day with CFS3, fantastic development from CFS2 but back then it would not run on the average PC of the day just stopped trying. Reloaded CFS3 recently (despite Window10 issues) runs very well 20 years later.
No, this is no good <model>
