Things that are NOT going to be in V1.0

Recommended Posts

Probably late here for the party, any idea when the next update after 1.21 will come? namely to address the CTD issue when using VNAV on descent?

This is the best payware plane for XP11 (IMHO) but the fact that the FMS is incomplete kinda ruins the immersion for me. IXEG I know you have it in you, guys you have to believe in yourself. You made a plane so immersive in sounds & especially in the camera system it makes PMDG look like nothing. IXEG I know you can do it!

BTW I am more into the classic 737 than the modern ones, keep it up Jan & Friends!

I've never had a CTD because of VNAV with this plane. Although VNAV is buggy, it has never been a cause for CTD on any of my flights.

Tom from IXEG has confirmed he will be working on a better FMS, but it will be ready when it is ready.

XP 11.21 and 11.25 introduced some engine parameter anomalies on the 300 (too much difference in N2 readouts and EGT), but the aircraft is still behaving well and is still a joy under approach and landing. And yes, the PMDG is a brick compared to this one.

So let's wait for the update and let IXEG spend the time necessary for them to conceive it.

Yeah I just want a fully functioning VNAV system & a full FMS, I can handle not being able to open the doors for a while.

Quite a virtual fleet you got there, you could start your own airline!

After flying it for around 1 year now, it has instantly become my absolute favourite. I actually prefer this to any 737 NG simulation.

I don´t really need most of the things from the "Things that are NOT going to be.."-List. Opening doors etc. is nice eye-candy, but not really necessary for me. What I miss flying on Vatsim though is a HOLD function. It really kills the whole realism for me, flying all the procedures and then the controller asks you to enter a HOLD and you can´t do it.

Yes, you can fly sort of a manual HOLD; I could also fly the whole leg manually or only with HDG mode, but I don´t - as this is not very realistic.

I can imagine that most fans of the 733 here would love a HOLD implementation very much, especially if they use this fantastic 733 on any online network.

Thank you so much, again, for this great project and its outcome: The most flyable plane on XP11. (for me) The pure joy of flying a STAR manually after takeoff, the way this plane simply flies, trims, it is incomparable on XP for me.

Yours Martin

where is the IXEG team?


Probably at their homes where people normally go for time with their families at the end of a day.

They visit here daily too.

Hold would be nice, but it's a lot of fun flying a nice holding after a go around via HDG SEL, having dialed in the needed VOR/s, courses, the chronograph ready if needed. You can even fly it manually. It's a excellent brain exercise plus, you gain some pretty good IFR skills. One shouldn't become a child of the Magenta line anyway. As long as you fly it correctly, there is nothing wrong with flying a holding with minimal automation like in the old days. The progress in aviation is of course welcome and important as it has made aviation much saver and more efficient.
