Hi,

I dont know about the saitek panel, someone else will chime in for sure - but for the FMC freeze you need to exclude your X-Plane folder from the live-anti-virus checking that you run (like windows defender or such...)

Hope this helps, Jan

Thank you for your quckly reply :)

I will try to exclude folder from windows defender and will see what happend :)

But there is one more - lights - exactly cabin lights and outboard left and right

cabin lights - all lights knobs (captain, co pilot, both site of MCP and overhead panel) I turn to max to right and every seems to be ok but overhead has iluminated letters but whole panel is very dark. I was doing preflight procedures setup MCP FMC etc. and after few minutes from cold and dark cabin became brighter than before and overhad is beautiful whole iluminated, any idea? - by the way when start evening/night in cold and dark setup I can't see battery master switch ;)

outboard lights - when turn on all landing lights, inboard light are exactly in this moment but for outboard lights takes few seconds. Is it normal? And they appears like oppening lights in sport cars, from crew cabin seeing - my english is not well to described this better

And one more - I setup whole plane with my saitek panels etc. It takes me a few hours and it happend once - left engine shutted down. It was exactly when I was turning light knob on right site of MCP. I was wondering about that I turn some switch by accident but whole switches where in good positions. Any idea? fuel tanks about 8 tons.

And one wish - do something with import routes to FMC - I use proffesional flight planner by aerosoft and any export files doesn't match :( And this co route request, have to write exactly name of route to import it. Please do something with this. Mayby like every one else (PMDG, Aerosoft, 777 by R&P) just pick up files what you want to use.

I have changed sim from Prepar3d v4 and beloved PMDG 737-800 to xplane 11 because a lot of airports scenery has problem with frames about 15-9 FPS. I have really good computer with two MSI graphic card gtx 1070 and i7 and water cooling - that information is for questions which can appear. Mayby this computer is not good enough for 4 monitors, three for wide screen and one monitor for maps etc. but a lot games the newest games don't have these problems.

Best regards

Chris

About the lighting and lights - this is realistic.

When you get on board, the cockpit is usually totally dark - if there are no lights outside, you will need a flashlight (there is one in X-Plane, too!) to find the battery switch. The overhead panel only has integral lighting, but you can use the flood light (switch on top left overhead) to illuminate everything better. The light you mention coming on later is either the emergency lighting (after battery on and emergency lights in auto) or the light from the cabin.

The outboard landing lights come out like the lights on a sports car (correct!) - thats why there are three settings on the switch - OFF, EXTEND, ON. We have not modeled the light in 3D yet, thats why you see it floating in mid-air under the pylon.

Happy landings, Jan

Hi, that is not possible (yet) - we plan to add it later (conditional waypoints)

Cheers, Jan

Yes - we have thought of adding a "quick alignment" option...just never got to that.

You can pick the "turnaround" or "ready to fly" scenario, the IRSs will be aligned already,

Cheers, Jan

I'm virtual airline member and procedures is very important for us, but real life is... all systems are ready and I'm waiting for align. But nobody is perfect :)

For now - it is my third cruise with IXEG and I have to say IT IS STUNNING!

If you make full funcionality FMC (RTE DATA doesn't work and things from above posts) I think it will be better than PMDG - next wish - FMC in separate window - my english - flying window?

Perfect job IXEG :) Now it has sense to fly with XP11

PITCH TRIM - adjust sim/flight_controls/trim/pitch_trim_up and down in flywithlua script made by sparker xsaitekpanels.ini for ixeg737 - if anybody need more accurate info I'm ready to help :)

Hi Abiofly,

thanks for the nice words!

Yes, it takes a while for the IRSs to align - thats why we always turn them to NAV pretty much right away after getting into the cockpit. It can take even longer to align them if you park further up north (we dont simulate that).

I think the "turnaround" option is still pretty realistic - in real life only maybe 10% of my flights are really cold and dark, usually you either take over from another crew, or you flew the previous sector yourself.

We get the request for detachable, fly-out windows quite a bit - and I don´t say never ;) - but completing the FMC is the first priority after this next interim patch. There is an option to display the CDU on an ipad, I think, Tom has that (forgot the name of that application)...

Happy landings, Jan
