Take Command! Saab 340A v1.6.3 Update Released!

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

This will serve as a formal forum announcement that we have released the version 1.6.3 update for the Take Command! Saab 340A. All customers who have purchased the Saab 340A up till now have been sent an e-mail by X-Aviation with complete instructions on how to obtain your update. We have made this a very simple process! For those that purchase the Saab 340A from today forward, your purchased download will already be updated to version 1.6.3 for you.

What if I didn't get the update e-mail?

If you did not receive your update e-mail don't fret! X-Aviation has updated our system to allow all customers to update with ease, regardless of whether you received an e-mail for the update! Here's what to do:

1. Login to your X-Aviation account here: https://www.x-aviation.com/catalog/account_history.php

2. Find your original Saab 340A download and re-download the file. It will download as the latest version!

The following is a list of additions/fixes included:
What's New / Changed:

  • Pilot DH Dial (reworked the DH Dial Logic to fix decrement error)
  • F/O DH Dial (added DH Dial logic to F/O Side)
  • ITT Digital LED (corrected wrong Dataref assignment for Cargo and AEW ITT Digital LEDs)
  • Cockpit Dome Light(s) (adjusted light intensity)
  • GPWS (fixed bad Dataref handle in logic causing a crash)
  • Gust Lock (fixed a bug in the logic for engaging gust lock with commands)
  • CTOT (reinstated torque value calc function casing CTOT to not engage)
  • Engine Start (rewrote the "start relay" logic incorrectly causing open and closing of the relay on motoring start)
  • Engine Temps (tweaked the ITT values)
  • Cargo Glass (fixed incorrect positioning)
  • Stairs (fixed Cargo and AEW animations)
  • Cockpit Document Holder (fixed texture reflectivity)


  • From v1.6.0 - Sim freezes/hangs on Saab load at certain airports
    • This bug appears to be related to airports that are at or near the Prime Meridian and possibly the equator. The map logic for converting lat/lon to x/y coordinates was getting hung in a loop due to coincident points or convergence error. This can be fixed but will take some revamping of the map coordinate logic, which is somewhat complex math and may take a little time. We are going to clean up most of the other bugs first and then get to this one. The good news is that for now the aircraft is working fine in all other areas of the world.
  • Gust Lock (Locking flaps incorrectly - will revisit in v2.0)


Reported as a bug. This is NOT a bug!...
  • Hydraulic Pump (tested for continuous running (unable to recreate, may be related to GPWS bug)
As always, thanks for being a customer with X-Aviation. We appreciate your feedback and support!
Enjoy these latest updates, and stay tuned to the forum as we continually announce the latest happenings.
