The Raven FS Labs Embraer E175 has been upgraded to build 1902

Both old and new winglet models have been updated to this latest build, which includes a few improvements over the previous one, and mainly adds several lighting options for an optimized use in Prepar3dV4.

These latest builds are available here

What is new

Main changes include:

- 3D Static Engine Blades
- Bump Mapping
- LED Style Strobe and Beacon for NW model
- Revised Landing Lights to color match with Logo Light (DL Only)
- Forward Locking Brace added to Nose Gear.
- Taxi and Landing Light lenses added to Nose Gear
- Complete replacement of old simple antennas with more detailed and numerous antennas

Easy options selector

As is now customary with all RFSL models, the new package comes with a model selector that makes installation a breeze. Based on your own version of the sim and your rig performance, you can install the version that is most optimized for your own setting providing as realistic a rendition as possible of the E-jet with as little impact as possible on your frame rate.

In a nutshell, if you use P3DV4 and higher and have a powerful computer, you can go for the bump model and Dynamic lighting. Otherwise, you can settle for the No Bump option. Obviously, Dynamic Lighting is a P3DV4 specific feature, and doesn't apply to earlier versions or FSX..

Textures Update

This latest revision also implies a few changes in the paintkit which means that all paints made on previous versions need updating too, as they might not display properly on this latest model version.

All paints available here on the FlyingCarpet Hub have already been updated. If you had them already installed in your sim, simply download them again and replace the old ones. Most painters will probably do the same but you can update the textures yourself in a few easy steps by following the tutorial provided by Andrew Quintal on his RFSL site.
