I continue to perfect the sim... NOT just in the way it LOOKS, but
even the code behind the scenes that you DON'T see.... read on!


OK the FMS and GPS is now really awesome... better than anything you
have seen before with X-Plane.
Here is the deal: Enter any plan you like into the FMS... The distance
and time enroute will display at the bottom
from your CURRENT position to whatever the final destination in the
FMS is... So as you scroll through waypoints in the FMS,
you will see the distance and time from your current location to the
displayed fix.
Now, while this is going on, if you have a GPS in addition to the FMS,
the GPS will always display the distance and time
to THE NEXT FIX YOU ARE FLYING TO... No matter what fix you have
selected in the FMS!
In other words, you can set your FMS to the last fix in the plan to
see when you will really arrive at the final destination,
while the GPS is displaying the time and distance simply to the next
fix. All of this runs at the same time, no problem.
As well, you can enter a full FMS plans into the FMS, or, if you like,
enter direct->to routes into the GPS... the FMS will simply
display that single-leg plan that you just entered into the GPS!
We have had GPS's and FMS's for a long time, but now all the pieces
fit together just PERFECTLY. This is lots more important than it sounds:
This is what will allow us to easily add even MORE GPS and FMS detail
in the future! (Something, obviously, we have planned!)

Various 'prop feathers on engine-fail/prop-pull/mixture-pull' and
other odd engine-reverse cases should be perfectly operational.
Emergency engine power is available only after engine failure,
regardless of how many times you have flown since you started X-Plane.
Spool time for jet engines is back... I THOUGHT we could get by
without it, but it hurts the SHUT-DOWN spool-down times to take it
away... so it is back!
Radio altimeter decision-height selection should always move in steps
of 10, as is probably desired.
Idle-speed switches should be operational in all types of craft.
A few little engine-sync/prop-sync issues should be sorted out... the
systems should be good for jets, turboprops, recips, etc.
172 autopilot now operational.

Meine xB737 will mit der RC10 gar nicht: Autopilot CMD lässt sich nicht aktivieren, Treibstoffpumpen mittlerer Tank auch nicht, weiter hab ich gar nicht probiert.

Himmelfix, warum muss mit jeder neuen Beta irgendwas nicht gehen, was vorher so schön funktioniert hat *:-[

Himmelfix, wieso geht bei mir bei der 737 alles! ;)

Also die 737 funkt wie immer.

Ich muss echt öfters "himmelfix" sagen > jetzt funktioniert wieder alles :)
