    [blocks_off 7373 First Officer] - Released

    Version 26/08/18 is released. During start routine, set ignition to L if the cruise altitude (as read from pressurisation panel) is odd. R if even. -Carl

    [blocks_off 7373 First Officer] - Released

    Version 19/08/18 is released. Whilst cycling many miles in the country I had an idea - why not get the first officer to help setting the pressurisation panel standby altitude.... and so they do now - Carl

    [blocks_off 7373 First Officer] - Released

    Thanks for taking the time to review my script As you say we have a different taste on what we wanted to achieve - it's fantastic that we were able to do so in the IXEG. Yes I have seen you were releasing for the A320 - well done. I have another planned in the future, but not for the A320 Thanks again. - Carl
  4. Hi All, Please find a link to the manual & script of my first officer.... (s)he is a LUA script. Drop the LUA script into your LUA scripts folder https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/46628-blocks_off-ixeg-first-officer/ The script will help you during high workload phases of flight. Preview Video (to supplement the manual) -Carl

    Dataref Question

    Thankyou - I should have said when I did not see the variables I require in the documentation I'd tried this tool. I'll have another look with a fresh pair of eyes - Carl

    Dataref Question

    Hi, Is there a variable for Panel Bright (left and right side), Background Bright please ? I assume it is not these (as they do not have _act at the end) ? "ixeg/733/lighting/light_main_pilot_side" "ixeg/733/lighting/light_main_copilot_side" - Carl

    Fuel In Centre

    Thanks - Carl

    Fuel In Centre

    Thanks - so this is of course why when in the air and switching off the centres the remaining few kilos are used ?

    Fuel In Centre

    Hi Before start, if there is less than 1000kgs in the centre tanks, I leave off the centre pumps until after take off (assuming of course there is fuel in centre!) I noticed for the first time, when I loaded the fuel I had 830kgs in the center and so the centre pumps were off. Taxiing out I did see a very small reduction - down to 800kgs just after take off. Assume some fuel still gets drawn from the centre in that case ? Thanks - Carl

    Togo help

    What I do is look at the MCP - the N1 button will be green (2 little green dots : ) Also on the PFD you will see ARM | | change to N1 | TOGA Once you get used to that, there is no need to look 'down' at the button. -Carl

    Ground Services - Menu

    Hi I know you've (@development team) have mentioned that opening PAX doors is planned. When you do this, please can you consider keeping the simplicity that we have now - so for us wanting to get in the air quick (and who wouldn't want to with this plane ) an option not to have to open the cabin doors / or shut down down engines to change the ZFW / fuel respectively ? Thanks -Carl

    Speedy Copilot

    Hi @jfjoubert You are correct with what you say and it is great fun testing when you move a switch to a different position, then it moves it back but i digress..... I do not hear repeated clicks, there are a few steps where I check for the state and then only set if it is not in the correct position for that routine such as gear handle, start switches. I've had a quick look at your code, and as much as I like the randomness idea, I will park it for now Well done though with that achievement... did you drink a lot of your favorite drink whilst writing it ? Thanks for your reply and interest -Carl

    Speedy Copilot

    Yes that is true of the code I posted earlier, but not if taking this into account i.e. it's part of a function as described here. As above

    Thanks - and with all the thinking my brain can do, I do not know why i've done it as per my original note. Just putting some more lines together in my lunch (for my shutdown routine) looks much neater per your suggestion :- (I've intentionally put the same time on some actions - I want my first officer using all fingers when he can! if r_includeIRS then if os.clock() > r_trigger_start_time + 1 then w_acft_irsL = 0 end if os.clock() > r_trigger_start_time + 2 then w_acft_irsR = 0 end end if os.clock() > r_trigger_start_time + 4 then w_acft_fuelLfwd = 0 end if os.clock() > r_trigger_start_time + 4 then w_acft_fuelLaft = 1 end -- leave on for apu if os.clock() > r_trigger_start_time + 5 then w_acft_fuelRfwd = 0 end if os.clock() > r_trigger_start_time + 5 then w_acft_fuelRaft = 0 end if os.clock() > r_trigger_start_time + 6 then w_acft_winheat_l_side = 0 end if os.clock() > r_trigger_start_time + 6 then w_acft_winheat_l_fwd = 0 end if os.clock() > r_trigger_start_time + 7 then w_acft_winheat_r_side = 0 end if os.clock() > r_trigger_start_time + 7 then w_acft_winheat_r_fwd = 0 end if os.clock() > r_trigger_start_time + 8 then w_acft_pitot_a = 0 end if os.clock() > r_trigger_start_time + 9 then w_acft_pitot_b = 0 end if os.clock() > r_trigger_start_time + 10 then w_acft_hydELEC2 = 0 end if os.clock() > r_trigger_start_time + 11 then w_acft_hydELEC1 = 0 end if os.clock() > r_trigger_start_time + 14 then w_acft_seatbelt = 0 if os.clock() > r_trigger_start_time + 15 then w_acft_beaconLIGHT = 1
