The Junkers feature 3 forms of lighting; Instruments only, Soft Glow, and
Dome Lights Illumination, (very bright).
During a night flight, you would normally have instruments only on in a cargo
plane or empty flight. With a passenger flight, you can add soft glow to the
interior of the entire aircraft. For preppring for take-offs, or deboarding the
plane, you can switch on the interior high intensity dome lights.
Contols for lights as follows;
* Instruments Only.....................................Shift L
* Soft Light Illumnimation..........................Control L
* Dome Lights.............................................'O' key, (Letter 'Oh')
Classic 1920's Panel
Modern 1930's Panel
Here are some miscellaneous screenshots around the Junkers W Series. On
the left is the vent window, opened by Shift E 3, and on the right shows the
Aux Fuel Tank Cap Reader Rod. With a full tank, its all the way up, at empty,
it has lowered flush with the top of the fuel cap.
This is the classic 1920's instrument panel and Virtual Cockpit. Note the twin oval
instrument consoles, old style riveting, batmobile style control yokes, and some of the
post WWI instrumentation. The tall black gauges are wing tank readers.
Its neat to note that you could slide open the canopy overhead section in flight, enjoying
the open air. This also availed pilots with also being able to egress the cockpit from the
outside. (Note the handle holds on the sides of the fuselage for climbing up the wings).
Note that the mini vent windows on the classic W-33 hinge down. They are controled
with Shift E 3 and Shift E 4. The overhead plexi panels also slide back and are operated
with Tailhook command. (The various catches and latches also animate).
This is the more modern 1930's W-34 panel. This cockpit features a much more
efficient use of panel area, having more gauges for navigation and engine
monitoring. The engine controls are now on a throttle quad unit and the
instrumentation technologies are almost to WWII standards.
Note that both classic and modern panels feature hiding yokes. (The yokes will
hide some of the primary instrumentation from the pilots viewpoint). So, if you
click the big bolt on the panel, (cant miss it), the yokes will disappear. Click it
again and they reappear.
To open the inner cabin hatch, select Shift E 2.

Note, these screenshots were taken on a LCD screen, which is brighter then tube
screen monitors. Tube monitors will show these as very dark.
