    The cockpit is too dark.

    No stress, I am used to what we have now but under some conditions X-Plane lightings is way too dark and it makes me feel depressed. A way to better illumínate the cockpit would be great and would make me enjoy the Saab much more - if it is technically doable. Other airplanes have the same problem but the cockpit in Thranda airplanes is better in that regard, especially the Piper Arrow.

    The cockpit is too dark.

    I can't stand looking at a dark cockpit for extended periods with a dome light doing nothing during daytime, even when the cockpit is completely in the shadow. Even though the Saab is my favorite plane in X-Plane, and tend to fly with planes with less fidelity because they have better lighting (Fokker 50 for example). A developer on another forum was kind to supply we with some info how to change lighting for the Piper 28, and it was just a few lines a confíg file. Is there a set of paramters how to make the dome light work like a real lamp taht illuminates the cocjput and not just a set of brighter textures during night? If my appartment is dark I can turn on the light, even during daytime. Also the overhead lamps are completely non-functional and would provide additional lighting. They are there because pilots need them, so they should work. It's weird to have working headlamps in every passenger seat but not the one for the pilot.

    Which update? Since I bought the Saab there has not been a single update.

    Beep sound while moving switches+ sound of hydraulic pump

    It's possible to replace the sound file for the hydraulic pump with silence or something less annoying. The pump can also be managed by switching it off during flight and on before landing. We have no real damage so this is actually a little bit of a damage control simulation on which you can discover some of the other switches you never use

    Saab Climbout on Autopilot oscillates/porpoises

    Good to hear that you are making the update and that it will adress the autopilot. I hope it will not take forever though. After 200+ hours with your Saab 340 I am getting close to giving in and buying a Carenado.

    Saab Climbout on Autopilot oscillates/porpoises

    The autopilot oscillates like mad. On my last flight it was swinging left and right during an entire flight of over 700 miles. I tried increasing throttle, disengagae autopilot etc, CTOT autocoarsen was all off.

    I also see those windows quite often, for instance when I accidentally hit trim during autopilot operation.

    Auto pilot problems

    no, if I am at any height and 10,000 selected I need to set it to 9,900 or 10,100 first

    Auto pilot problems

    The AP in this plane is frustrating. Sometimes when I set vertical speed and push VS it resets everything an engages with an insane rate of 3000 m/min, potentially killing everyone. Often nothing at all happens when I hit buttons. I have to enter a new selected height first, click several times and wait until it eventually engages. I think this is all related to how the programming of this plane is able to read data from the sim, it seems to have severe restrictions. You can still fly the plane without problems of course, but you must learn how to make the AP engage and how not to let it kill you.

    Where are LES functions documented?

    Ok, thanks this will be greatly appreciated and I am sure you see the problem. A short //comment or something would already help greatly, it doesn't have to be a whole essay

    Where are LES functions documented?

    I am currently confused by the many LES/xx functions in the joystick menu and their naming I could assign all basic functions so far, some were already descriptively named, others could be located by try and error But I know reach a point where I get lost with some functions Namely HDG_Slave I first assigned this to "Autopilot Heading Select and NAV arm" (which was suggested in a video). The XP function but I now noticed that it does not visually act on the HDG_Slave button, so it is probably misassigned. This would also explain why the button rarely works for me and brings up the white Gizmo windpw. I did a full text search in thepdfs and it did not bring up a list of functions. To better make use of this plane from this stage on I think I'd need a basic list with what the abbreviations mean and any other descriptive text to figure out what the function does.

    The white window sometimes comes up when I use Heading Slave or Trim. I succesfully landed on a field near Dresden and got messages that I was attempting to move the plane with chocks in place. It was hilarious, should have taken a screenshot.

    Reboot button mid flight only switches off my engines

    Do I understand this right, the next time this happens I just reboot the plane? That would be fine.

    Thanks @Chase911 I almost always restart X-Plane before a flight but sometimes I don't. I might have switched location or something sometimes. And I also thought it could have something to do with reinitiating the plane mid flight or even alt-tabbing (I have only 1 screen right now) It's not a biggy. I can switch off the damn pump manually and if it does not help, could try to make the sound file quieter. I just thought there is a logical explanation why it sometimes won't shut off even after many minutes continuous operation.
