    If this is not considered a bug, please move topic to the correct forum Hello dear devs, as I was curious if the AP can handle an Autoland with the new downwash effect, I did a quick test. Conditions: EDDH rwy 23 with weather set to clear (no wind, no rain, no clouds, no turbulence) GW 52,2t 11.32r2 (beta) The plane flared, "ballooned" at about 20 feet RA, then descended again and touched down. So it looks like the autoland function or the flight model (whatever, maybe both) need a recalibration to work with the new downwash effect. Kind regards from Hamburg Germany

    Reverser stages

    Hello Ppl I´ve made a feature suggestion regarding reverse stages. It`s no longer needed since x-plane now provides the custom response curves. I just make my own rev. stages. I´d just like to know, how much of N1 reverse stage 2 has. As far as kno: 1: idle N1 2: idk 3: ~83% N1 So maby one can help me out on this ^-^ Greeting from Hamburg, Germany

    Reverser stages

    if you do it like me and use two saitek throttle levers for the reversers, do it like i did in the attached screenshot. It gives you an almost idly detent. I fiddled around a bit to find the perfect setting.

    Uh. So then it must be a NG/MAX thing. Or i got something completely wrong Again something learned.

    I actually would love to see a 737-500. Every dev. makes the long versions. But i think there is a lack of the shorter ones like the -100, -500 and 600. I love the babyboeings. Such cuties.
  6. Hello Jan (and the rest of the team of course too), as far as i know, having the winglets turned to "on" or to "off", makes no different when it comes to the flight dynamics. It´s always the same flight model. Are you planning to change this in a future version? If not yet considered, I´d like to add this to the feature wishlist. I just had a conversation with a Pilot, who told me, it makes a noticable difference when landing the plane. (yea i´m gettig nitpicky again ) Btw, can you tell me which on the of options is currently aerodynamicly modeled? I´m just wondering. Sidenote: It would be great if you could rework the gear lever handling. Boy it´s so sensitive . I don´t know, how many times I´ve dropped the gear when trying to put the lever into the "off" position. Greetings from Hamburg-Germany

    Flight model (Winglets)

    Aha! Thx! So I´ll turn it off for now using the IXEG. Have a great week!

    Flight model (Winglets)

    Thx for reply! Does the drag increase come with the "experimental flight model" or is it standalone? (I´m evil. I´ve checked the box vor activating experimental flight model)

    Not transparent square on the window

    I´m running 11.30r1 at the moment and the square seems to be gone!

    Newbie looking for help

    Hello Jan, seems like the right moment for a quick question about the flight model. I use the X-plane Beta (11.30B3) at this time and i can´t land dat thing without floating. If i don´t float, i smash it on tho the Runway. So it´s either float or smash. (I know it has nothing to do with the IXEG but the 737-800 by ZiBo has improved landing dynamics. Thats why I´m confused although i know both planes have different wings.) Landed perfectly in 11.26. Is the current "feel" realistic? do i have to get used to it? Or is it a byproduct of the new flightmodel of 11.30 and it wil be fixed at some time? Cheers!

    MCP options :)

    I actually requested this earlier good to know i´m not the only one wanting this feature. however, the 737-200 has the same clicking noise. i actually like it.

    Minor Cosmetics

    Hello Jan, hope you feel great! I have again ideas for improvements. small and fairly simple 1. A little pop up delay for the ground supply panel. At the moment, when i click on the cround call button, i hear a beep and the ground handling panel pops up emediatly. i´m too lazy to hold the butten for a realistic dedldedldedldedl as the popup ist already there anyways. So i think it would be nice if you have to hold the button for a second or two, in order to activate the popup and let the horn scream for a little bit. in reality the cround crew takes a little time for responding as well ^^. to be honest...it really took me a while to realize there is moore then just a "beep" because i never held the button pushed. 2. crew call button "ding" if i want to give a "ding" to the cabin crew, i always have to close the crew options window afterwards as it pops up just after you click the button. so maby you could programm it in a way, that a simple click splays the sound, and a double click or a held click toggles the window. 3. maby as an Option, the brown collored screens you showed in the W.I.P. pictures. i think many 737-CLs have them nowdays as they are often replaced by 757/767 screens since the originals aren´t the newest anymore. 4.never gonna make it into yout "to do" list, but i´ll suggest it anyways. who knows. digital VSI indicators, as they are sometimes found as aftermarket installations. Greetings from Hamburg in Germany Have a great day!

    Speedy Copilot

    I´m downloading 2.15 a this moment. I´ll modify it like i did in 2.0 and test it from top to bottom, probably next wekend. I didn´t thought about the go around problem with the flap retraction altitude. I´ll have to put some crativity into that.

    Speedy Copilot

    Great! However... engine start switches and FLT/GRD switch doesn´t work for me. i don´t know why. i´ve checked which version i have. it´s clearly 2.0. for flap retraction i simply added: if speed >= 140 and radioaltitude >= 1000 and step == 1 then It shure is possible to build another trigger to switch between 1000 and 1500 ft. I also have reworked the flap setting values. (probably completely useles but i´m a perfectionist :P ) I noticed, that the generator connetion sound is cut out. probably due to the checklist popping up. I´d change the after landing procedure trigger to the strobes as the turnoff lights are often used for taxiing. The strobes are always switched off when you leave the runway. I´d change the takoff items trigger to one of the inboard landing lights as i for example like to take off without the outboards for fuel saving reasons. I have so many ideas for this script : P I can write them down and send them to you if you like : )

    Speedy Copilot

    I´m really diving into this script trying to improve it. I´ve already added a flap retraction altitude of 1.000ft, so the FO doesn´t set flaps 1 right after liftoff... which is a little unhandy ._. I´m trying to make the FO handle the GRD/FLT switch, but if i enter the dataref into the script, lua crashes. no idea why. I´ll also try to make it set flap 30 for final. i´m a flap 30 guy ._. I´wonder if it would be possible to link takeoff and landing config to the FMC data. Would be awsome. I´m also trying to make the FO arm the speedbrakes... which doesn´t work. Same problem the engine start switches have i guess : P This script has plenty of potential : ) EDIT: Copilot now also starts chrono during before taxi procedures and stops it during after shutdown procedure.

    windshield frame

    I think the other add-ons just don´t get it right. they all look too big for me. keep in mind: the lowest point of the overhead is just 20cm above the highest point of the glareshield. The pmdg has at least 30cm, same goes for the zibon the ultimate, and the flyjism boeings. lfyjsim looks like even moore.
  17. Hello guys, i have a few things that i think would really add to the realism or would just be nice to have. before i begin... sorry my keyboard is horrible... so please excuse mistakes. Feel free to correct me if i´m wrong 1. remodeling of the yoke. the curvature of the top ends of the yokes somehow kills the feel of flying a boeing 737 a bit (at least for me). 2. Reverse lever connecting rods. IXEG: X-Plane 2018-01-12 20-55-12.bmp (ZiBo like the real thing i think): X-Plane 2018-01-13 23-56-02.bmp 3. braking noise. I hear them on several addons and so far i can remember hearing them in real 737s as well. 4. Alt and Speed inv. buttons. (would make flying on AP easier sometimes. vor exaple when you fly an automated RNAV approach) 5. the AP disco button is on the wrong side at to copilots yoke. (nothing really bad, but if you have some time left, feel free to correct it.) 6. Make the gauge lightning look more like this: 7. those AP levers some 737-CLs have instead of the buttons 8. click sound when you rock the throttles back to idle and a reverse lever deploying and closing click. 8. bitching betty callouts as i´ve heard them on some 737s and 727s 9. better flap acuator sounds. the sound really default. 10. i don´t know if that is even possible without complicated self made codes... Reverse stage gates. So maby half of the lever travel is idle and the rest is independenly adjustable or so... you get what i mean 11. less sensitiv ALT knob... it´s a pain in the a^^ to adjust it, as it is so sensetive (nope it´s not my mouse). I have to dial in something near the ALT i want, and then use my keyboard for the last 300 feet or so. 13. non-efis instruments... but i´m not gonna discuss this here as someone already added them to the wish list. 14. better flight dynamics... just joking 15. paintkits for the wings and the cockpit. 16. yea.. guess i said everything , but i also wanna mention that i really apprechiate your work and that the IXEG 737 is stil the #1 addon when it comes to flight dynamics and a lot of other things. So don´t get me wrong. still my #1 choice.
  18. Hey guys i kinda have a problem. I´m at a Stand in icing conditions. -3°C , Snowy. Ice was clearly visible on the wipers, so it was on windscreens as long as windowheat was of. At some point i noticed, that the GW in the ground services menu didn´t match up with what my fmc said, even after a few calculations (i wanted to check if maby i made a mistake). So i assumed it must have been the ice building up on the wings. At that point the deviation was about 5 tons. But no matter what i did, (wing anti ice, engine anti ice and so on) the GW shown in the ground services-menu kept rising...and rising... and rising... to app. 66 tons it startet to drop as it stopped snowing. As soon as the snow came back, the GW rose again. Am i doing something wrong? Or is it a bug? The only thing that helped, was to switch to manual weather setting and winch the temperature up to 40°C. this made the GW drop very fast, so at least i could fly somehow.

    Boeing 737 vs. Boeing 737

    Boeing 737 or Boeing 737?
  20. Somehow the IXEG 737 is the only aircraft in my fleet that doesn´t work with Simcoders HeadShake. I tried to turn off the IXEG implemented head movments but that didnt help somehow. Are they even compatible in general? i mean i really like the IXEG ground shake better than the HeadShake ones, but those combined would be perfect. IXEG on ground, HeadShake up in the Air. But maby i´m just doing something wrong.

    Things that would add to the realism.

    Thanks for replying 1. real one ixeg: X-Plane 2018-01-14 10-08-40.bmp look at the left an right top of the yoke, where the trim switches and the number dials are. there is clearly a different shape in the sim. 2. rods are clearly vissible here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEuZrpxpiZM here at 3:08 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-u2Awp-13o&t=9s and here at 6:55 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5m1Nvz_pMQ and here at 8:06 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGV0cXiVkVg according to your reply, all of them must be spechial ones and do not represent the 737 classic rev. levers in general. i highly doubt that is the case. ive seen a lot of 737-cl videos and ive seen them rods a bunch of times. never seen one single 737 in general without them. no matter which series. 3. at 34:45. i think that hum is the brake. can be something else as well. but this is exactly the sound brakes make on other addon aircraft (Fmod sounds for 737-800 and flyjsim 737). I´ve heard that hum on real 737s as well but never in videos. so i think this sound is verry hard to catch on video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hleAzSPPNWc&t=2084s 6. ive never seen gauge lightning like on the ixeg on real one photos. they always look like the photo. just wondering. maby i didn´t find the right ones. 7. these levers instead of buttons as an option. 8. shortly after 1:12 you hear the throttles hit the stop. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfgO_GCR9X0 he may be a little rough but you get what sound i mean . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEuZrpxpiZM at 8:01 very quiet, but you can hear the throttles reach the stop https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEuZrpxpiZ 9. nevermind 10. maby a code related to the ixeg throtles and not to the harware throttles. but as i said. brobably too much effort.
