    Update

    No, XP 11 navdata format has been drastically changed to mimics closely real world format. In fact, you CAN download real world navigation data from the FAA and use that instead of Laminar Research data. I fear the upgrade will be XP11 only, but IXEG stays a very valid craft as is in XP10.

    This is the cockpit display of the "IXEG 737 Video System". How it works This cockpit display is powered by DC BUS 1. The screen will be on at all times when this electrical bus is energized. Installation 1) drop files into X-Plane 11\Aircraft\X-Aviation\IXEG 737 Classic\objects. There are 3 files. 2) Open Plane Maker -> Misc 3D objects -> Add 3D object -> Browse to add TV-737.obj. Save the Plane. Exit Plane Maker. Done !

    Ah ! I think it should work, it does not use anything restricted to windows to my knowledge but I don't have a Mac to test it.

    Speedy Copilot

    Hello captains, I wanted to present you my Lua Script used as copilot in the 737. I wanted a very robust and simple solution, and so far the Lua script has proven to be reliable. While there is some limitations stated in the PDF manual I have written for you, it's a great help not to fly alone and have a very simple but efficient first officer ! All the best, and please let me speak about Speedy Copilot ! What it Speedy Copilot ? Speedy Copilot makes for you the steps normally done by the first officer and pilot monitoring, when you are pilot flying and captain of a Boeing 737. Speedy copilot is intended for the IXEG 737 (version 1.21 and above). It was tested and works with X-plane 11.20 and IXEG 1.21. It is not very realistic to do all the steps required in the procedures on your own. The Flight Crew Operating Manual makes a clear separation between actions from the left hand seat and the right hand seat. So we'd like to have the right hand actions (F/O, PM) done for us in reaction to the phase of flight and to left seat actions (CPT, PF). Several options exist to have a virtual copilot flying with you In X-Plane. But they might be technically complex, challenging to maintain, or require payware softwares. The intent was to provide a simple solution! We have made a transcript from the FCOM into a Lua script for the IXEG 737. We have made the transcription of the following procedures : Preflight procedure (triggered by the left hand side oxygen mask test) Before start (triggered by the beacon to ON) Before taxi (trigger by both engine generators to ON) Runway Entry procedure (including TCAS control, triggered by left outboard landing light) Take off run : gear and flaps retraction schedule (automatic trigger per rate and speed) Flight 100 and climbing items (automatic trigger per captain altitude) Flight 100 and descending items (automatic trigger per captain altitude) Approach, flaps extension schedule (automatic trigger per altitude and speed) Go around (reversion to Take Off procedure above) (automatic trigger at positive rate) After landing procedure (triggered by speedbrake down on ground) Apron entry (lights and doors) (triggered by runway turnoff lights OFF) Shutdown procedure until turn around state (beacon to OFF) The procedures are either manually triggered or automatically called. The Copilot is not calling the checklist. The copilot is doing the procedure. DOWNLOAD

    white glass on cabin livery

    maybe make a copy of the fuselage object, expand it by a millimeter to make it appear on top of the existing fuselage, remove window holes, reattribute texturing, load it as a 3D object in WED.... basically making the 3D yourself.

    ok !
  9. then you can code like : if joytsick_x > |0.95| then "no trim" end If you look carefull is not a layer order problem for the FD : the FD in the real aircraft are 0.80% to 0.90% opaque. Not 100%. That's the deal. I'd like to draw 'n add a custom 3D object with static texture for the TV monitor. That would be cosmetic, not functional, (so not simulating security-related functions) but fun to design.

    Being new to XP and Updating XP

    Hey Nick, I have not used P3d since June 2018. XP is much more open (even if not freeware) and flexible. The only problem is for aircraft designers, when Austin changes the flight model parameters every update, they have to patch things ;-). But I like the wind-tunnel concept more than the look-up table concept. Sceneries have catched during the past year. And the IXEG 737 is a serious bird. we can't fly as fast as in an NG aircraft, but it's solid work.

    Co pilot

    yes, super simple to install is my motto. I had used interactive solutions, but it was very heavy to install, maintain, program and use ! And were payware. So I went coding myself my own simple-to-use copilot. My copilot is simply the best free-to-use, easy-to-use, official procedures-compliant and helping copilot you can find. My copilot has got more than 5000 downloads, all versions mixed. Almost 1000 for the IXEG copilot. it's called Speedy Copilot for IXEG 737 Classic in the Speedy Copilot series. Installation is a two-stepper : 1) Drop that into X-Plane Ressources/plugins directory 2) Drop that into \X-Plane 11\Resources\plugins\FlyWithLua\Scripts\ done. All the best, Speedy Copilot_5.pdf

    Strange behaviour since X-Plane 11.32R2

    You're right in submitting a bug report. You should update to Son 11.40.

    Help !!! fps low

    Yes indeed, it's here and you cannot open them.
  14. This aircraft focuss on non basic stuff. You speak of freeware airplane, but none of 'hem has correct electrical circuit nor correct pressurization modelling you know. Regarding Speed Intervention, take a look at the history of the 737, it has been an optionnal feature before newest model numbers. The HOLD, regarding the HOLD, if you are a pilot, you know how to do this, or you can use CWS to be helped. This add-on is a "model", an accurate modellisation of a lot of things. You have to accept that even in the best science laboratory, we use models to represent in a a simplified form the complexicity of life and machines. I was once in a laboratory that published papers only in Science and Nature. Well, we published in top-level journals, but didn''t have perfect models, we had good-enough approximations of what we wanted to show. See the IXEG Classic as a scientific model (that's the case, it was produced by engineers, not aircraft geeks), that should do the trick.

    Speedy Copilot

    Hi, it's not a bug, it's a feature ;-) The option button at the bottom is a new feature in the version 5.0. If you are a developper, it can be hidden, so that you then will only be able to toggle the options menu via the FlyWihLua menu. For that, you have to open the code, scroll to the end (GUI) and locate the "Options" window frame. You can adjust to your desired size and position (for instance outside of your screen). But that's for developpers only, people who know the Lua code, as it is not documented in the PDF. For people who master FlyWithLua : From : function OPTION_BUTTON(OPTION_WINDOW, x, y) -- THE BUTTON imgui.SetWindowFontScale(1) imgui.Bullet() imgui.TextUnformatted(Current_title) if imgui.Button("[Options]",250,27) or IXEG_FWL_MenuCall then IXEG_FWL_MenuCall = false app_is_active = true float_wnd_set_geometry(OPTION_WINDOW, 200, 820, 900, 200) float_wnd_set_imgui_builder(OPTION_WINDOW, "OPTION_MENU") end end Change that line to your liking : float_wnd_set_geometry(OPTION_WINDOW, 200, 820, 900, 200) But I won't provide more support because of other projects. Hope that helps.

    Description Speedy Copilot for IXEG 737 makes for you the steps normally done by the first officer and pilot monitoring, when you are pilot flying and captain of a Boeing 737. This plugin is intended for the IXEG 737 (version 1.21). It was tested and works with X-plane 11.26. Please install at least FLW 2.7.11 NG. The Flight Crew Operating Manual makes a clear separation between actions from left and right seats. So we'd like to have the right hand actions (first officer and pilot monitoring) done for us in reaction to the phase of flight and to left seat actions (captain and pilot flying). Remember that the Copilot is not calling the checklist. The copilot is doing the procedure. We suggest that you run on your own the checklist at the end of each procedure. We have made the transcription of the following procedures : The procedures are either manually triggered or automatically called. Triggered by... Preflight procedure the left hand side oxygen mask test Before start the beacon to ON Engine start Captain start or on-screen action (click-to-start) Before taxi Automatic. Taxi flow after flight controls check, cabin check Perform flight controls check. Runway Entry procedure (including TCAS) quick glance at both approach path and runway (or Landing lights ON). Take off run : gear and flaps retraction schedule Automatic. Flight 100 and climbing items Automatic. Flight 100 and descending items Automatic. Approach, flaps extension schedule Automatic. Go around (reversion to Take Off above) Automatic. After landing procedure spoilers down on ground Apron entry (lights and doors) runway turnoff lights OFF Shutdown procedure until turn around state beacon to OFF Secure procedure on-screen action (click-to-secure or click-to-restart) Additional features You can listen to the cabin PA and boarding music if PA receiver is activated on the left hand side Radio Management Panel. Cabin crew is handled by Speedy Copilot without pilot intervention according to phase of flight. In addition, the first officer pressure altimeter setting is linked to the captain's one. If you change the barometric settings, the F/O will synchronize his one. Context Several virtual copilot options might have existed previously but they seamed challenging to install and maintain, or required payware software. The intent in this Speedy Copilot for IXEG 737 project was to provide a very simple solution yet realistic and efficient. We made a transcript from the FCOM into a Lua script for the IXEG 737. The first version of Speedy Copilot for IXEG 737 was released in June 2018. In August 2018, we published Speedy Copilot 320 for FF/STS A320 Ultimate. Based on the success of Speedy Copilot 320, many users reports and five months of updates and evolution, we transferred-back some exciting features to Speedy Copilot for IXEG 737, which led to version 4.

    Speedy Copilot

    If you wish, I have published the beta version 0.9 of Speedy Copilot for the FlyJSim 732 Twinjet in the utilities.
  18. I would check the FCOM charts and do it manually...

    Transition omg Where???

    To begin, if you are unsure and if you are not flying online, you can also add a STAR, then direct to the IF of your approach procedure, without transition, as a starter.
