All customers who have purchased the TBM 900 up till now have been sent an e-mail by X-Aviation with complete instructions on how to obtain your update. We have made this a very simple process! For those that purchase the TBM 900 from today forward, your purchased download will already be updated to version 1.1.9 for you. What if I didn't get the update e-mail? If you did not receive your update e-mail don't fret! X-Aviation has updated our system to allow all customers to update with ease, regardless of whether you received an e-mail for the update! Here's what to do: 1. Login to your X-Aviation account here: https://www.x-aviation.com/catalog/account_history.php 2. Find your original TBM 900 download and re-download the file. It will download as the latest version! The following is a list of additions/fixes included: What's New / Changed: Improvements / New Features: New ground steering model to put an end to the unstable takeoffs & landings. Implemented GPU rental costs. Added hand-towing option to the sidebar drawer. XP11.30 engine changes during startup to produce a lower startup ITT spike. Added inertial separator transition sounds. Pressing TIMER on the yoke automatically brings up the TMR/REF page. AviTab support integrated into yoke-mounted tablet. Tablet now stows in the door pocket. You can still use the USB ports to summon it, but this will be removed in a future update. Reworked pressurization schedule. The system will now gradually change the cabin pressure target as we are nearing the destination, instead of going to it immediately on takeoff. Pressurization won't fling open the OFV fully on landing, but modulate until equalization has been achieved. Corrected high-altitude performance to be within +-2 knots of POH tablets. Implemented configuration-dependent KIAS errors to match POH values. Implemented sidebar drawer smooth animation. AOA sensor failure separated out from AHRS and now individually settable in "Edit Failures" window. Visual configurations window now includes option to use older custom heatblur effect. Expired databases show in amber on MFD splash screen. Replaced G1000 manual link with one for the TBM850 & TBM900. Bugfixes: Battery recharge button in maintenance manager was incorrectly disabled. Restructured battery voltage drop with load to give more realistic red battery voltage indications during start. Fixed CAS message pixel alignment issues. GPH indication on EICAS should properly respond when moving into or out of CUTOFF. Electronic checklist was asking for "FUEL SEL" to OFF in a few places, when it should have called for MAN instead. Gear wear was using incorrect sideslip computation. Rudder propwash force correction could end up taking reverse thrust into account, when it shouldn't. Fixed missing pitot & static covers Low-fuel instability wasn't powerful enough. Fixed prop overspeed on reverse with slow forward motion. Workaround for ReShade bug causing hang in its OpenGL hooks DLL. ODB was missing minimum download speed clamp to abort if the download is slow. Don't try removing the odb directory if it didn't exist to avoid a spurious error log message. glutils drawing wasn't properly disabling vertex arrays, leading to potential crash.

    Cloud heights way off

    You expecting help after filing a credit card chargeback is exactly why you aren't getting support. You were made aware of this in your support ticket. It's really not that hard to follow. @sundog was made aware of your antics days ago, starting with the disputes you filed with FSGRW, then the four PayPal disputes you lost with SkyMaxx Pro, and now finally your chargeback that you filed with your credit card company but somehow feel you're still entitled to support. The only scam artist here is you; the one who thinks he deserves support after filing for a refund with his credit card company. It doesn't work that way. That's the end of the discussion.

    Excuse you? Are you God Almighty and now everyone has xEnviro? You need a reality check. I also like how you decided to clip the part of the quote where Jan said "reporting this". In no way was he incorrect to say what he did, and he's pretty in tune to what's being reported on the IXEG product. Park the attitude at the door, or we'll help you with that next time.

    IXEG please, PLEASE give us a VNAV system!

    Yep. Posts like this don't cause production to increase any faster. But, if you felt like you needed somewhere to just blog your thoughts....by all means.

    Update

    Not so much cynicism as much as realism. It's not like the sound samples are going to change. I agree that any update is better than the last (we hope), but I'm not going to over hype anything. I want people to understand that FMOD does not always equate to some magical new doors being opened!
  15. Cameron

    Update

    This is coming, but I think people over-hype what FMOD is or does. I really don't anticipate much a difference in what you hear vs what's in there now simply because we created a 3D sound engine prior to FMOD being available. Aside from just becoming cohesive in the X-Plane world with FMOD, I think you shouldn't get too overly excited about FMOD sounds on this product.
  16. Cameron

    Update

    Glad you were able to get that off your chest! Now back to the daily grind we do day in and day out.
  17. I would guess so, but I haven’t tried it myself.

    Does RWC require an update?

    Weather data services used for sims (NOAA in this case) do not update weather frequently anyhow. Once per hour is the norm for that.
  19. If you're worried that there's some immediate update around the corner, there is not. It's being worked on but it's not anywhere close to ready. Anyone who purchases now will also get a big discount for v2. Buy it and enjoy it.
  20. Cameron

    Should I buy RWC?

    Yes, in your case you would want RWC and set it to the external injector mode.

    SkyMaxx Pro v4.8 Update Released!

    @DeltaTango @nechrofaust @VasilisMaximos @seth The RWC install issue should be resolved. You can re-download the installer and re-run it (the SkyMaxx Pro 4.8 installer). Using the one we released last night will NOT work. You MUST re-download!
  24. Cameron

    Does RWC require an update?

    Why did you try to update RWC? There was no updates to it. We are looking into that error, but I'm curious why you went down that route?
