  3. Hello, I found an old Continental 737-SOP (Dated Feb. 2011) and extracted the checklists as well as the Cockpit-Flows. This may help you to get even more realistic operations in your flight-sim.

    Tom, glad you took the time to write that. I know you speak on behalf of the vast majority.
  5. A Dedicated Thank You!!

    Well said...totally agree!. I just start X-Plane to fly IXEG aircraft...not only for the great model but also for what Jan & Co. make it feeling..like a real thing

    any xplane scenery goes to xplane/custom scenery/, you definitively need to remove all folders from that package from there. -as you said i would expect the uninstaller to do so, but if it doesn't it is broken and you need a different strategy. -have you confirmed there is no txt, doc, file anything that can tell what folders are part of the package? -another strategy could be you try to install it again, then sort custom scenery folders by date of modification on the mac finder and see if it makes senses what folders have been modified to remove them.
  8. Project: Boeing 777 Series

    Looks amazing! How is the cockpit coming?
  9. A Dedicated Thank You!!

    Well said Tom. I second everything you have said. I sit back and read all the undeserved BS that some spread, and know that if I was on the receiving end I would not be as patient. As a fellow Aussie, I live not too far from where Ben lives, and I know just what he has gone through recently. Good onya mate! As a final note ... for me, I have already gotten ten times the enjoyment for the money I paid for the IXEG B737. Anything more that comes along I regard as a tremendous bonus.

  12. A Dedicated Thank You!!

    Hi With this post, I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to all team members that participated in the making of the IXEG 737. Since I am clueless to whom those individuals are, this post is also generic to the extent that I also want to express my gratitude to all those not mentioned in this post. To the Team and beyond! Thank you, Morten and the development team. Thank you for having the audacity to embark on such a project and whilst I do not know all the names in the group, please feel the gratitude as you would If I had mentioned you by name. Thank you to all the beta testers! I know there has been an extensive number of hours gone into developing and testing this lovely bird. And I do feel I speak for every customer when I say WE DO APPRECIATE IT ALL, every minute, every second of the time you spent making this. I would imagine that we are most likely united when I say we do love the plane and all the joy and grief it has given us. I for one would say it has been worth it, it is truly the best aeroplane ever made for X-Plane, period! I do hope you continue the development as a team, but I will understand if you don't. I for one would gladly pay for updates if this means this project will continue! Special thank you is in order! To Jan: I am gobsmacked with your time spent on extended testing and sharing of information with fellow flight simmer. We are blessed to have your expertise and dedication, both on scenery developments and IXEG member. Your dedication is a true value to the X-Plane Community. And I do hope you continue to share your knowledge of the IXEG 737 aeroplane. You can learn so much from books and papers, but to have a real life pilot giving advice on what to do and not to do, is essential and weight in gold. Sharing how you do things in real life is a value we as flight simmer's love and swallow with great satisfaction and amusement. To Ben Thank you so much, Ben!! I have a slight idea on how tough your day to day life has been recently and to have the IXEG world hanging on your shoulders with providing updates for the GIZMO on your spare time for almost no money. Whilst having a family to take care of is more or less outstanding, you have my deepest respect, truly. I would recommend everybody to donate money to Ben, so he can keep the Gizmo project alive. To Cameron Thank you so much, Cameron. I know you get all the shits we as customer extends on a day to day basis. I can only imagine how hard it must be to try and uphold a fair and respectful feedback, to all customer regardless of case, item, product, forum post and opinion. I have said much, most likely say some more, but my heart is pure and the respect is truly dedicated to guys like you and the rest of the IXEG team and XAviation. Many may not share this special thank you or even my opinion on the matter. This is how I feel and I would argue this every day of the week. XAviation regardless of customer satisfaction is a key player in the X-Plane Market and should have the gratitude this post extends. So to all not mentioned in this post! Thank you all, keep up the dedication and enjoyment of X-Plane development and gaming. We are in many eyes "nerdy" type of guys and girls, but we know what we love and that is what counts. There are many products and key players out there that do a fantastic job for this community, but this post is nearly a dig into that and a small humble effort from my side, to express a deep gratitude for a truly excellent product. I salute you all! Best regards Tom Knudsen

    can someone please help,
  14. Spot whats new (v1.1 spoiler alert)

    Hi apilot, no improvement was made to the VNAV predictions. Also no mid-flight saving feature is in 1.1. If X-Plane crashes mid-flight, I suggest to contact Laminar Research customer support. For most people the simulation´s stability is very good, so it is likely that there is something that can be done for your setup. The usual culprits are incompatible plugins or memory exhaustion (due to excessive scenery loading). Cheers, Jan
  15. Spot whats new (v1.1 spoiler alert)

    Sorry to resurrect this thread, but i just finished reading through it today and I dont see any mention of the descent forecast entry. is this something that will be included in 1.1 or will we have to wait some more for this feature? Also are there any plans to implement some sort of autosave feature, or at least allow saving the entire situation, like pmdg aircraft do? This would be sooo helpful for when xplane decides to crash midlflight like it loves to do.

  17. IXEG 737 Advice/Reviews

    ohh my friend, my eyes hurts reading you re-configure all of your joystick profiles and assignments every time you select a different aircraft for flying. You can create a per aircraft profile, everything gets configured/assigned automatically when you select an aircraft. You may use a plugin like xJoyMap or use a lua script. OptionA. Xjoymap plugin. http://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/11720-xjoymap-joystic-to-dataref-mapping/ OptionB. See a lua sctipt example attached i do use. Depending the aircraft you select it will assign everything you like. joystick.lua
  18. Update on the Update

    And while everyone waits for 1.1 - here is a little preview of the EGPWS we flesh out more in the next patch:
  19. IXEG 737 Advice/Reviews

    many third party add-ons use custom commands through plugins, however, X-plane does not allow to store custom config per plane.I use the X-Assign plugin to save plane specific joystick configs. although it is not perfect either, some interference with other plugins tend to wipe out some assignments I believe, it does save you some time as most buttons stay put.
  20. IXEG 737 Advice/Reviews

    VNAV simply does not work. Most of the time T/C and T/D are calculated incorrectly. It's not 1-2 miles shift, it's 10-20 miles error. Many times it says "Unable CRZ altitude" but in fact there is a reasonable level flight segment for that FL. Changing route during descend due to RWY change is a nightmare. You will either get software crash or crazy AP behavior after new route execution. In "real" life you can ask for vectors, but flying offline expect all your approach to be messed unless you cheat. What I've ended with is not using VNAV at all for descends (and someone on this forum was right - it's a great fun to calculate everything by yourself) and switching to HDG in case I need to amend route until I'm pretty sure that new route is not messed. Another thing I'm very disappointed with is that IXEG do not use built-in simulator commands for many systems. You have to write scripts and assign yoke buttons to custom commands to be able to manipulate them through hardware buttons. This makes switching to other planes a real pain in the ass! I hate this! Sometimes I want to fly another plane just for fun but I have to spend 10 minutes to reconfigure my yoke buttons! What else? The way how cockpit is modeled is outstanding! It's 12 points out of 10. You can not look at other aircraft cockpits after you have "visited" IXEG's one. But external visual model is acceptable. Not even good. It is acceptably good at daytime but at nighttime it's not good at all. I prefer flying at night and this fact disappoints me very much. And, yes, I like to watch replays of my landings from the outside. This is the part of simulation that amuses me.
  21. Reinstall X-Plane and IXEG

    You don't need to reinstall. Check out this http://developer.x-plane.com/2016/11/you-dont-need-to-reinstall-x-plane-to-fix-it/

    http://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/forums/topic/120367-good-jet-to-buy/&do=findComment&comment=1162527 I suspect a big part of this misinformation is generated by the growing buzz at the other side of the Force... tried to reply but I am censured, even just stating that I have no issues with the plane I'm not allowed to
  23. Reinstall X-Plane and IXEG

    Just an advice: remove X-plane configuration folder and it will start like just installed. I did this when I changed some graphics settings and it crashed and refused to start anymore.
  24. Next update

    Keep up the good work guys. This aircraft is amazing.
  25. I have a serious X-Plane misconfiguration problem. I need to reinstall it. Should I follow any special procedures regarding IXEG so that I will not have any inconveniences with the activation of the product? From already thank you very much.
  26. IXEG 737 Advice/Reviews

    and let me add to this wonderful description, those little "bugs" are exactly what keeps me flying this thing, because I have to continuously be aware what is happening, hand check my vnav path, make sure those max and min speeds are respected on approach etc etc.. so much to do this way, but it is sooooo addictive
  27. IXEG 737 Advice/Reviews

    Thank you, that's some really great detailed description of your experience and helps me to decide on this one. Agree that last minute changes done incorrectly isn't going to go well I doubt even in the actual bird. Computers are good but garbage in = garbage out. Sounds like this one is worth giving a go!
