    VR - clouds in cockpit

    Hello, I'd like to report please that this is still happening (clouds in cockpit in VR) in SMP v4.9.3 in XP11.50b9 Vulkan. Tested in the TBM900 v1.1.12 Also it might be related that I see some cloud textures weirdly rotating with my view. Thanks.

    Throttle taxi/reverse in VR

    Hello, how do you operate the throttle in TAXI/REVERSE range in VR please ? I understand you have to lift the thing under the throttle with your fingers IRL but how do you do it in VR pls ? Thank you.

    VR - clouds in cockpit

    Hello, yes I did both right after install since I wanted maximum performance for VR anyway. Performance is fine. Unfortunately the issue persists. Fingers crossed for the fix in the update. Thanks.

    VR - clouds in cockpit

    Hello, I recently purchased SMP4 to use in VR. It works pretty well but I noticed an issue when passing though clouds in VR - the clouds sometimes pass through the cockpit and directly into one or both of my eyes which is quite unpleasant. It's not constant but it happens often enough to be unpleasant while passing though clouds.

    Info message re cabin temp

    Hello, I've been flying the lovely TBM a lot lately (v1.18) and I get this message almost every flight. It's quite funny, there I am, cruising at 30000ft and being advised to open the door to get cooler All looks fine. My bleed is on, air conditioning is set to AUTO, fan speed max (I use max to get cooler faster after I switch to MAN mode), temp selector in the middle, air selector halfway between cabin & windshield, all looks fine. What I always do is to flip the AUTO mode into MAN for a few minutes (with the fan speed at max and temp selector in the middle) and the message goes away ... and then if I forget about it then after a while I actually get too cold so I flip it back to AUTO BTW: Speaking of warning messages - is there a way to disable the "low FPS" warning please? It's a bit annoying - I get it every time during a weather refresh (even with my 9900K), otherwise my FPS is fine but every time the weather is being recalculated I get the message (I'm currently using default weather + FSGRW). Would be nice to be able to just disable the FPS warning message but I don't want to disable all warning messages because I want to know if I'm doing something wrong with the ACF. Thanks.

    Also in XP11.30 LR adds the configurable input curves to all axis - that should help quite a bit even on crappy rudder like the Saitek ones I have. I found that having correct rudder trim set and using rudder trim instead of pedals (unless a bigger correction is required) on takeoff helps too. I think the crappy consumer HW with no backpressure and jittery, short travel axes are the major source of the problems. Especially if you don't have pedals at all but a twist joystick or something like that. You can't realistically expect it to behave like the real thing because the HW is completely wrong, even if the modelling is perfect. But at least the curves should help, we'll see.

    v1.1 IGNITION always auto at beginning

    There are other things that don't get saved as well like the G1000 state is always in default configuration, but I'm pretty sure it used to save the G1000 state in the initial versions but then it kinda stopped working. Since I have no RL experience with G1000 I don't know how it should behave but it's just something I noticed.

    Very unstable aircraft?

    I also use xEnviro (v1.07) and it works fine. You have to keep in mind that in xEnviro they model cloud turbulence and also clean air turbulence - you can meet those from time to time. I think there is a slider in the options that alows you to dial it down if you find it too strong. But anyway, for me the plane fly fine and I don't experice these issues at all. As someone pointed out it would be best to start testing by having a clean default unmoded Xplane install with only the TBM and see if the problem goes away. If not then it's something wrong with your setup.

    xSaitekPanels map

    Welcome. I actually just uploaded a new version that solves all the problems with the previous version (toggle commands, multipanel lights) by adding a custom LUA handling for the switches. All should now work fine. PS: Also for anyone who may not know this - xSaitekPanels has a button you can map to your joystick called "Xpanels FN button" (find it in your joystick configuration). What this button does is that it allows you to accelerate the various knobs by holding it (like ALT) and also access additional functions and parameters (like YD funcion on AP button on multipanel or ability to set COURSE for NAV1 and NAV2 on radio panel). It's a neat feature that not many people know is there in XsaitekPanels by default.

    Very unstable aircraft?

    This might be an obvious thing but do you have all your axis correctly callibrated ?

    Question about the G1000 map mode

    Thanks. It's strange though. At the time I had almost 2h of fuel still. Something LR has to fix I guess. Or I don't uderstand the logic behind it. If what you say is correct then the circle should be 400+nm, not 20 and shrinking. Odd. Or do you have to set the reserve somewhere? I haven't noticed any such menu. I guess it would make sense if the reserve was by default something like 120 gal. But thanks anyway. I will look it up in the manual and perhaps then it will be clear. At least now I know what it's supposed to be

    Question about the G1000 map mode

    Hello, I have one more question please about the map mode - what is that striped circle please ? It grows and shrinks from random places and does weird things like that. I don't uderstand what it represents. What is it please ?

    A few bugs

    Btw speaking of pulse lights I noticed that they work even with crashbar down and no electricity. That seems odd.
