Another issue I hope can be corrected is that internet searches linking to threads here now just open the main page, not the thread itself, so not very useful.
As for the new look, maybe it's an interim ... plain white rectangles on a plain grey background ...very drab. Perhaps just a background image of the sky (no airplanes, everyone would have a different opinion of which to use).
Photoscenery doesn't have any autogen, so what you see is normal. The buildings and trees are placed in FSX according to terrain textures and/or landclass. Photo scenery doesn't have those textures so no autogen... As for the airports, I think that you should see buildings etc because airports are usually excluded from photoscenery coverage, or at least its runways, taxiways etc... Someone corrects me if Im wrong.
You got me thinking about different cockpits I've flown with in RL, to include the OH-6. I did a search of various 300 cockpits on the web.
The two I've attached should be a good starting point, the difference being inclusion (or not) of an HSI, DG, and turn coordinator.
The first one is simple and easy, great for VFR flying. I added the OH-6 panel in case you go military with your creation.
Ever wonder how to set the flight director for takeoff? This video will demonstrate two different ways to set the flight director to reduce pilot workload, along with cautions for one of the methods. A few other items such as when to turn pitot heat on, arranging FMS screens, and what NOT to set in the flight director are given in this quick video. This video was made using the CJ4 after AAU1 for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
