    You bet IXEG is good ! Oh yes ! I pray for it to keep as good, performance-wise, even if there is an update (not needed in my view) in the graphical part.

    IXEG 737-400/500

    Hello. First of all, I'd like to congratulate Litjan for his continues presence over the forums here, answering kindly to questions of users. This can be tiring sometimes to always check forums and respond to users with a lot of various infos, questions, suggestions, misunderstandings. I know this. So I salute this continuous presence here, assuring the after-market support. On the one hand, I'm usually a detractor of any post in any topic that could leave to developer pressure, such as continues requests for an improbable new aircraft to be developed, while current aircraft are still worked (I am not talking about this topic asking for 400/500), new features or asking for release dates and so on. Seeing over and over this kind of post doesn't make a developer work faster, nor does it take into account what is really crafting a simulated aircraft of the class of the IXEG in backstage. On the plus side, when it is a manifestation of enthusiasm it's still positive. On the other hand, that introduction to my question being done, I have to ask it because I'm starving, I'm hungry of IXEG news : is there any progress ?

    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

    Speedy Copilot

    Hi Jax, thank you for your interest. I've been working on Speedy Copilot 80 for the Rotate Md-80 lately, and Speedy Copilot Twinjet for FlyJSim 737-200. I have embedded in the last one a more detailed preflight procedure and a new way to reset the copilot to a desired status like jumping to before take off, instead of a generic reset button. I might change that to produce a new small revision for Speedy Copilot for IXEG 737 during next autumn. In the mean time, I can recognize than it can be easy to be blocked at one point, not being able to find easily the trigger of the next step. Regarding the flight controls check : - there is no specific order for the axis ; - within an axis, there is no specific order of direction to be checked , - I have set a sensitivity were if you push your lever to... ...say 75%, Speed copilot will consider the direction as checked. There no need to push your lever, like a yoke, at 100% of deflection. This is done to help with user calibration of the yoke or joystick. As a conclusion, in your case, I suspect there is insufficient calibration of your axis. You might recheck the joystick calibration in X-Plane menu. Ultimately, if you are tired of trying, you can modify this sensitivity on lines 1174 and 1175 : local butee_sup_de_controle = 0.75 local butee_inf_de_controle = -0.75 But I would not recommand to change that, as that doing the flight controls check in the simulator is not only a decorum but also is very usefull to check your own sim controllers availability. Hope we can find a resolution and pass this step for you. XPJ, writing from EDDM.

    Fuel Cross Feed not working ?

    (I used to clip the tip of my tie to the card-holder clip on the yoke! Great idea for a revision of speedy copilot for ixeg 737

    Speedy Copilot

    You are welcome ! Hope it helps. I understand it can be misleading if you came from a search from the Internet :-) you can ask questions in the FFA320 forum if you need, or comment in the speedy copilot 320 comments section. :-) Best regards. By the way, I'm working on a md-80 copilot for now.

    Texture update

    still true ! please don't increase the visual quality. I love the reduced footprint of the IXEG. I can do really matters : flying from the flight deck and training !

    Speedy Copilot

    Hi Ceram, the moderators won't appreciate that you speak here about the FFA320 maybe. This forum is only about the IXEG 737 ! Anyway, you need to turn ON the taxi light then perform a flight control check control. (Quick Reaction Handbook, Normal Procedure chapter, section 4/10 : before taxi procedure). Check your audio level setting inside x-plane : all must be greater than zero. Hope that helps.

    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.

    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 !
  18. 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.
