Bugfixes: Rain effects would cause screen flashing when reflection detail was above Minimal Fixed broken baro minimums entry. Tutorial arrows need to be able to render in VR. When AUX BP AUTO engages, FUEL PRESS should extinguish when the engine driven pump is operating. SVS impact rendering wasn't being drawn. SVS on AMD GPUs was not drawing the sky correctly.

    Just took this beauty for a ride in VR in rainy weather. Can i just say thanks for creating a beautiful product. This complements my TBM 900 perfectly. X-plane just got a lot more enjoyable!

    Yeah, forgot about the trim system answer. The automatic disabling of the trim by control column force is not implemented, nor is the "override" position. We may add this at a later time, I don´t remember why it was a problem back then (we are using default X-Plane trim, so that may have been the reason why it was hard to implement). Cheers, Jan

    I think it is time, to thank the whole IXEG Team! This product is now out since 2016. It was a long way from the first pictures on their website in 2010 (I think) until release in 2016. It´s still a long way to go. Some are waiting for a -400, a -500 or a cargo version. Some are waiting for a fully analog cockpit, and some are waiting for airstairs. I want to emphasize some things which make this team great! They are in direct contact with us all the time through this forum. They help us out, no matter what the problem is or what time it is. An answer can be expected within 24 hrs most of the time. They spent a part of their spare time to work on updates, probably spending tons of money on coffee, to make a great product even greater. They are very open to all kinds of feature suggestions, no matter how complicated or nitpicky they are. *caughing* They are honest about the few flaws the product has (for exaple the dreaded VNAV code ) I think I speak in the name of a few more people i f I say: Thank you for your all efforts and probably a few sleepless nights! Thank you for all your support! Thank you for all the time spent to make the IXEG 737-300 what it is and what it will become! Thank you for dealing with all the difficulties of the everchanging X-Plane system! (flight models, Vulcan, ect.) Thank you for [ please insert whatever you want to thank them for ] If I missed something (I´m sure I did) please forgive me.

    He coded all the systems. As well as create some new features that other devs are using. (Synthetic vision. Rain. Terrain and weather radar)

    I'll pass your log on to Saso and see what he makes of it. If you just flew over the same area without a crash, then it could be "system specific", meaning something on your PC or something totally random. I don't have any OrbX stuff, but I might try flying over the same area and push a few buttons on the FMC and see what happens.

    No worries, Michael! I know it can be overwhelming to have a "real" 737 under your seat of the pants... I still remember the day I sat in the real one for the first time (March 92, Paphos, Cyprus) and even though I was type rated, had been in the LevelD for many hours and was "just" going to do some touch-and-goes to get my landing training in...I was really almost overwhelmed ;-) Keep learning and - most importantly - have fun while you do it! Cheers, Jan

    Just to come back with my testings, there was 2 broken tiles that causes x-plane crashes. I can fly the TBM mostly fine with almost all plugins disabled. There are still crashes here and there, but atm its at least working ok for me. For the future it would be nice to get the plane more forgiving about problems related to other addons maybe, since i can fly all other my planes with all addons enabled. Anyways, great plane and keep going!

    Hi Michael, Well I have a confession. I am more like you than you know. I too got interested in "airliner" type flying a while back and even though I'm programming it, I haven't fully mastered it, I still have a lot to learn. What I have learned though during my research of FMC / CDU operation, is: 1) you'd be surprised how many people aren't exactly sure how things work when recalling it from memory and 2) there are indeed small deltas to how the FMC operates between software version and some folks never quite get to see the alternative operation and so get quite dogmatic on how its supposed to work, when in reality, there are variations. I have two very comprehensive FMC manuals and they simply do not give the 'minimum criteria' for the EXEC lit to be lit....at least not that I have been able to find. All examples given in these references have you to press the EXEC key while some waypoints are loaded. So...that being said, I think you have indeed found a bug in the tutorial document. I can only guess that we might have taken a screenshot of the PERF INIT page while some waypoints were loaded and we just didn't catch it. Philosophically, I see no reason the EXEC light couldn't light up after entering some PERF INIT data without a route (at least 1 waypoint), after all, its just a way to tell the FMC "do some calculations now"....and with only PERF INIT data entered, any calculations without the route would be minimal....there are a few, but nothing that alters the flight path of the aircraft. One of my (quite official) FMC texts uses the phraseology, It could be argued that PERF DATA without a waypoint cannot be a flight, and therefore is not a flight plan....nor is PERF DATA only a guideance mode or part of the navigation database. I think this was the logic I used when programming it originally. If you have at least one waypoint (from the navigation database), then you have a minimal flight and that's when you get the EXEC light (after ACTIVATION). More confusing to me still is the term ACTIVATE. For example, below is some text from my rather official FMC manual I have. The above says that entries have been activated by pressing the lighted EXEC key; however, we all know that before hitting EXEC for the first time, there are the words ACTIVATE on LSK 6R...which must be pressed before EXEC. So.... if, according the manufacturers own manual, 'activated' results from pressing the lighted EXEC key, what the heck are we activating when we press ACTIVATE? I tell ya, communication is a finicky thing! Anyhow, thanks for catching that, we'll make the appropriate updates and I hope you don't get too discouraged. Learning an airliner and the ins and outs is daunting and I myself have a long way to go, usually I only undestand one thing at a time and right now, its holds! Thx again, TomK
