  1. Not setting correct textures.

    Yep, that's a general problem - seasons behave quite differently on the European and the North American continent (not just England) - due to the Gulf Stream and the different orientation of mountain chains, winter comes further down south in North America, and summer also reaches further up north. Just a thought on a future refinement of TerraMaxx - if season limits could be defined using latitudes and longitudes (i. e. tiles or areas), it would be possible to better define plausible seasons for various regions of the world (also thinking of Japan, New Zealand and similar areas with specific climatic circumstances).
  2. Socata TBM-900 New Exterior Previews!

    Wow, great to see how you're constantly pushing X-Plane beyond the current generation...
  3. need help

    No, only cargo doors will open. Pax doors will come in a future version...
  4. Announcing the Socata TBM 900!

    Holy ***, this is going to be really awesome. I'm already addicted
  5. Announcing the Socata TBM 900!

    Definitely looking forward to it. Concerning the G1000: at least terrain overlays will come with 11.20 for the map display... But I also like that iPad solution. In that aircraft category, it's not so uncommon to have this kind of retrofit solution...
  6. Camera shaking and cabin crew problems

    PAX doors are not yet implemented. For the other problem (camera shake), can you please give some more details? Do you have any other camera or headshake plugin installed? What means "it doesn't work" - will the radio button not engage/disengage, or do you still experience camera shake although the button is disabled? Can you please attach relevant log files (log.txt and GizmoLog.txt)?
  7. ixeg-737v1.2 flight idle

    Ah, you got the version with alpha floor protection *scnr* No, seriously I can think of two possible causes for this: When pulling the thrust levers to idle, you potentially missed to catch the ghost levers after having disengaged A/T - this would result in the thrust staying where the ghost levers were last before disengaging autothrust Your thrust lever axis could be inversed or incorrectly calibrated.
  8. Coroutes and Flightplans

    I'm not sure if this really matters on Windows, but my folder is called "coroutes", not "Coroutes" - and I have no issue loading them in the B733. Concerning SimBrief, make sure you remove any runway and procedure names from the route, as they would lead to another error (invalid format).
  9. IXEG 737 flightplan

    OK, that's the problem - the .fpl format doesn't permit to specify runways and procedures. The correct format would be: UMMS GOVIK M863 RUDKA T174 WAR N871 KUKOP N869 OKG UN869 DKB Z818 GEBNO EDDS Runways and procedures have to be selected each time using the DEP/ARR page of the FMS. Furthermore, DCT may only be used between fixes or navaids, but not between a fix and an airport.
  10. IXEG 737 flightplan

    @NewSimUser Can you please post the content of that coroute file (i. e. UMMSEDDS.fpl from the coroutes folder)?
  11. Weird autopilot behavior

    Yes, absolutely. Torque indicated is actually a force measured at the propeller shaft, and it's mainly driven by the resistance the propeller experiences when its blades are moving through the surrounding air. With constant barometric pressure, this resistance is a function of the speed of the blades (which could be expressed in RPM) and their pitch angle. So while on ground, the same combination of pitch and power setting will always result in the same torque. Now let's take off and start climbing - you keep power and pitch commanded the same way all the time, but what changes is the barometric pressure of the surrounding air: it gets "thinner", creating less drag on the propeller blades and thus resulting in a lower indicated torque (and also in a lower propulsion power of the engine, as the mass of the airflow becomes smaller). To counter this effect, you actually can adjust your power settings during climb (in some aircrafts you actually have to do this, but stay within the engine's operating limits!). This is btw. also the reason why it's so important to disengage the CTOT system after take off: CTOT (constant torque on take-off) is a system that will adjust the commanded power to keep the preselected torque. If you keep it engaged during climb, it will command more and more power to compensate for the altitude-driven torque drop, until the engine catches fire or fails otherwise.
  12. A Saab story

    Hehe, that's the bane of realism in flight simulation... there's a reason why IRL a Saab would be operated by a flight crew of two
  13. Training Video's

    @teban13 Have a look at the IXEG1 youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/IXEG1/videos The videos you're looking for are called "KPHX-KLAX Departure Part 1" and "KPHX-KLAX Departure Part 2" (the hydraulics failure is demonstrated in part 2).
  14. KCVG Cincinnati Skyline Simulations

    Looks neat!
