  1. FYI.....still full time on it. still on schedule...still have our same 'target date' not too far on the horizon. Again, more than a few weeks, but less than several months ( minus the weeks since last report) . TK

  2. The MU2 is "waiting in the wings" at the moment, while I work on the IXEG V12 process. The MU2 works tolerably well enough in XP12, whereas the IXEG does not work enough in 12 to even fly it....so I need to get those customers taken care of and I'm working towards that atm. As soon as the 733 goes out the door (more than a week, less than a month), I'll go back to the MU2 and make another series of passes to leverage the V12 features and start improving the performance model. It won't get left out in the cold. -tkyler

  3. Thank you for the kind words Ian. We are certainly excited to be working on the IXEG again. On the one hand, the initial port to XP 12 is a bit more labor intensive than anticipated...but on the other hand...getting everything ported to modern workflows and features is ceratinly a welcome change on our end, ensuring less development pain once we get this initial infrastructure change done. -TomK

  4. Hello all. Those who have followed know that the IXEG 737 develoment has been stagnant for a long time while I've worked on my MU-2 project and stabilize it after the release. That stabilization phase is nearly done. XP12 is imminent and I'll be porting the MU2 to XP12 beginning next week...and it should not be terribly long (I hope). After that, the 733 will move back into rotation as the primary focus of development with the port to v12 being the first priority. The IXEG is minimally operable in V12, but that's all we can say. We obviously had to make it baseline flyable in order to test/develop it with all the XP12 changes, which have yet to be addressed. As such, our official position for those who wish to try the V11 IXEG in V12 is "VFR joyriding only". I expect we'll set up a 'volunteer forum' where folks can give feedback as to their V12 observations as its better to have more eyes on this stuff; however, we request that nobody report any shortcomings of the V11 733 in V12. We are keenly aware of a lot of things that have to be changed....so we'll want to wait until we believe we've caught all we can find before other folks chime in; otherwise we'll end up with a massive stack of the same reports. So, certainly keep XP11 around if you wish to fly the IXEG seriously until we get it ported over. I've always kept "old version / new versions" side by side on my computer for these transitions. Long-time XP users know that after a major release to X-Plane, there is an inevitable debug period that goes on for some time, though many other devs have begun already, we're behind. ....but nice to have the process underway.....Below screenshot shows what the cockpit looks like in V12 daytime. -TomK

    N16W is a Challenger 605 presented here for the Challenger 650. The wheels and struts on the real aircraft are black. I have painted them black but rather imperfectly to save time. If you prefer the default gear textures simply delete the main gear and nose gear textures from this download and they will revert to the default look. Please do not modify or redistribute without permission.

  9. We've learned better than to give dates; however, we have a very well defined 'todo' checklist and are working towards this every day, full time, whereas in the past that was not the case. As such, it'll be more than a few weeks, but less than several months, there is a LOT of stuff to test. We customized a whole lot of things that have to be audited, assessed and in many cases, 'removed and patched over'. We are very committed to this guy though and definitely have improvements coming not too far down the road.

  10. Thank you for the welcome, and a lot to learn ( sim setup and add on's etc ) for me here.. I did order a decent yoke, and throttle setup , so hopefully that will make the adjustment a little better. Currently uploading some raw video for TomK to use his big brain on and translate into more realistic performance of the MU2 I don't think it will ever be possible to simulate the yaw aspect of the real plane, meaning - it is a VERY trim sensitive plane, and when you are flying by hand, there is a lot of re-trimming based on airspeed and pitch.. either side of 150 knts, the Marquise acts very differently - not sure you can model that, but it is almost like a boat coming and going off plain.. if that makes any sense.. Same with cross winds, if you keep the wing low into the wind, it is sane.. if you get that wing high, it will turn you and make a mess of your approach, etc.. Anyway, looking forward to give some feedback when I can. It is a pleasure to meet you guys. Tom here is that startup sound I think you were going for.. 4-Blade Hartzell - https://photos.app.goo.gl/ngMWtTE4cZWGUvyB9 5-Blade MT - https://photos.app.goo.gl/k6GCpqUMDi2r5fDi6 David

  12. I foresee two 'events' with regards to the 733. Event 1 is "port to XP12 'as is'. Event 2 is 'upgrades beyond the port'. The goal of event 1 is to get it to work in XP12 the way it does in XP11 given XPlane changes. Those who have made 733 purchases since early this year will certainly get the XP12 port version for free as stated on the XA product page. Beyond that XP12 port though, we have not made any determinations about what may or may not constitute a 'paid upgrade' beyond the fact that it shouldn't be egregious or outlandish. Regarding features 'beyond the xp12 port'... we have and hear arugments all the time for/against variants, cargo versions, etc and have not made up our minds yet about what may be next. The obvious things todo are the FMS work and upgrading all the 3D/textures/animations. As far as MSFS, a lot of us developers have kept an eye out on the whole market/dev process and a port is not a trivial thing, regardless of what Fenix / inisim is doing. We're talking multiple 1000s of man hours easily, and at my age and road traveled, that's a tall order.....regardless of the money potential. I rather enjoy my little world in X-Plane and those users who also see the same value in it. Perhaps Fenix, iniSim or someone else can do a 737-300. I can't speak for any other devs in the X-Aviation ecosystem, but for our part, we'll probably stick to X-plane with the 733...best I can tell from today. -TomK

  13. Not the latter, but somewhat the former. It was an FAA outage that induced the simulated total WAAS outage, but it wasn't an outage in their real-world SBAS service itself, rather the reporting systems that the FAA uses to publish the service's status to the public via the internet. It's this system that the Hot Start CL-650 relies upon to determine WAAS coverage, signal quality, availability, etc., according to sim aircraft location. Sure, we could have "failed safe" and kept the in-sim WAAS "operational" based on the last reported status, but where's the fun in that? I think the failure was a nice opportunity for sim pilots to learn a thing or two!

  14. I hope that in the current life cycle of XP12 we will see not only 737-300, but also 400/500. Good luck guys. Your plane is still one of the best and atmospheric.

  15. NEAREST APTS MIN RWY is applied to the NEAREST APTS subpage of DIRECT-TO and the magenta airports displayed on the MFD map when in MAP SYMBOLS > NEAREST APTS is enabled. The "APTS" function just shows all airports with any runways. Note in the screenshot below that the magenta airports are the "NEAREST APTS" (to which the runway length filter is applied). The blue ones are all the other ones ("APTS"). Why the XLF<whatever> airports have a runway defined, I cannot say, but according to the scenery data, they most definitely have one. In case of XLF000D, for example, there's a 986 ft runway defined. In short, working as intended, X-Plane says there's a runway there, so we show it.

  17. Hello All, This will serve as an official announcement that we have released update version 1.7 for the CL650. All customers who have purchased the CL650 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 CL650 from today forward, your purchased download will already be updated to version 1.7 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 Challenger 650 download and re-download the file. It will download as the latest version! The following is a list of additions/fixes included: === Release highlights & New features === Implemented two-pilot shared cockpit Please review the included CL650 Shared Cockpit Quick Start Guide PDF Added support for X-Plane 12 for all platforms VHF COM frequency formats shouldn't allow omitting leading '1' digit You will now need to enter the leading '1' digit in radio frequency entries on the TUNE page. Leaving out the decimal point is still allowed though. DES ADVISORY If the flight plan doesn't contain any suitable descent constraints from which the FMS could anchor a descent, it will no longer give you a "TOD" point. It will instead give you a green "DES" circle on the flight plan, with a green "DES ADVISORY" in the MFD VNAV window. This is just the FMS taking a rough stab at guessing approximately where you should start your descent, so that you end up 1,500 ft AGL at 10nm from the destination airport. It will not: give you a vertical deviation from this path, capture VPATH give you a TOD indication, or aural vertical track alert This is it basically taking a guess, in absence of more accurate data Remove custom atmospheric model on XP12 On X-Plane 12, the custom CL650 atmospheric model has been removed, since X-Plane 12 now implements temperature effects on altimetry natively. Consequently, there is no option to disable temperature effects in X-Plane 12 when flying online anymore. These effects are always on. Be sure to use the latest xPilot betas when flying XP12 on Vatsim to make sure your altimeter is being reported correctly. MIC selector should enable audio even if monitoring pushbutton is deselected Even when you didn't push in the volume control knob on a radio, if your MIC selector is set to that radio, you will still hear the audio. HUD shouldn’t show selected speed in FLC or FPM in VS The HUD FMAs will no longer show the speed target for FLC or the FPM target for VS. The real HUD doesn't show them, so we removed them. Don't show ACT FPLN on EFIS when CDU is on SEC FPLN pages When SEC FPLN, SEC LEGS or any secondary flight plan-related path is displayed on the CDU, the on-side PFD & MFD will show the secondary flight plan on their map displays only. === 3D model fixes & improvements === 3D & texturing: Fixed texture issues on all liveries present with the updated mesh for the ADG door. Made some adjustments to other areas with substance painters new and extra bake maps Fixed gear bay texture issues Nose Gear Bay - Fixed incorrectly mapped object and fixed textures Fixed visible window shade behind wall light mounts Fixed incorrect mapping on DC Power door. Fixed one antenna not joining onto fuselage. Added indicator line to HUD knob. Added bumps to EVS knob. Fixes to LIT texture. Added missing “LIGHTING” text to lower lighting panels Glareshield: Moved object centre to 0, 0, 0 to fix mirrored object that was nudged to the left Cockpit Object: Plugged hole in main entry door manipulator Cockpit Interior: Closed gap behind circuit breakers on left side Shuttle: Low poly version and textures Fixed excessive shine on decals Fixed glareshield artifacts in textures. Increased width of windshield centre pillar. Fixed ATS DISC button parenting problem on left thrust lever New sun visors, textures and new visor animations. Exterior Fuelling Panel - Fixed LITs and test button manipulator. Wing Textures - Fixed ambient occlusion issues under wings Wing Textures - Fixed ambient occlusion issue on fore flaps Fixed weird ambient occlusion on 4 of the flap tracks. === Bugfixes === 3137:

  19. Yes!! Thanks so much. BTW this AC is unbelievable as many others have noted. Q8Pilot is over the top with this one. Congratulations on producing the most advanced AC ever in the consumer sim arena. And you folks are so responsive with questions and issues on this forum. Amazing. I don't know when you started work on this project, but as a software engineer myself I know this had to be either a lot of work over a long period of time with a small team, or a huge amount of work in a short time period with a large team! Either way - you did it! I look forward to future products from you folks.

  21. Hi all A big thank you to the IXEG Team for this wonderful aircraft, I have spend 100's of hours on it since that special day way back around April 2016! It's a real pilots aircraft, the old saying, "Remember, you fly a plane with your head, not with your hands and feet", certainly nails it for me when I'm simming, if the aircraft doesn't feel and respond the way my brain expects it to, then it doesn't even make it out the hanger. That's the main reason I'm on XP11/12 now, and not in MSFS, that "sim" is just to arcade feeling for me, I've been doing this since 1985 when I was 10, working my way through the ZX Spectrum games (DI Tomahawk) and onto Atari ST, Amiga and the 486 PC with DI Tornado being a highlight. So these are a few clips I through together, along with a bunch of short final landings, most are from 6 months ago or so as they are still with default clouds, more recently I'm enjoying Enhanced Skyscapes. So again, thanks to the IXEG team, it's been a great 5 years flying this aircraft, here is to more good times in the future. Cheers

  22. @OneOffRegistrationUser Thanks for those. (got a nickname? :P) So a more comprehensive GUI/interactivity is in the planning for the Moo. I had to learn enough imGUI to get basic Moo prefs in, but couldn't spend a whole lot of time on the GUI design as it can be its own monster. For the IXEG, I'm having to get a bit deeper into imGUI as we're dumping the old, custom GUI.....and as I do, my comfort zone with it evolves. My thought is that once the IXEG is ported and more feature complete...I'll turn my interest into GUI development for just these kinds of things. In the meantime, I really appreciate your efforts and contribution! TomK

  24. Actually, yes.. lol I started the Youtube channel to educate potential buyers of the plane to be honest.. So far, it is easier for me to fly.. I think I need VR to make this work for me, never realized how much I look around.. Baby pictures below. My cockpit is very similar to the one modeled. Do you think there will be a 750Txi version in this sim?

  28. Those are "lever locks", which keeps the handles from moving on their own due to vibration (in the real thing). If you move them forward to lock the levers in place in sim, you'll find you won't be able to move the levers. I've written some preliminary code (currently commented out) to retard the levers ever so slightly based on vibration/turbulence.....but the real conditions that cause levers to move are a bit more varied based on differing aircaft models and maintenance, tensions etc....so I haven't decided just how I'll go about implementing "lever movement due to vibration/turbulence"...but I will at some point and will document it. At the least I need to document those handles in an orientation capacity. Thx for the feedback. -tkyler

  29. I think (but I may be wrong) that it performs a similar function as well as a similar lever on the right. This one on the right blocks the PROP levers. So by analogy, I'm assuming that the one on the left is blocking the Throlle levers. ;-)

  32. Here's the issue in two screenshots. First one has L and R pressed in, but still show closed as no bleed pressure. The APU LCV is closed despite being pressed in, because it prioritises engine bleed. Second pic shows the L and R pressed out. This allows the APU LCV to open, providing pressure to open the ISOL valve and everything is good for starting. Incidentally watch the closed lights on L and R disappear as you press the start switch and they open automatically to allow starting.

  41. Mine does the same in both the SR22 and SR20. I have the RealSimGear yoke, and the Yoke makes way more extreme adjustments than needed (pitch control as well), with the autopilot having the same issues with aileron control as shown in the above video. I don't have the same issues with other aircraft in X-Plane. Also, mine doesn't seem to be any different in clouds/high rendering of any kind.

  43. The Challenger can be hard work on the approach and landing, but when it all comes together it's very rewarding. All the beta testers had difficulty learning how to land, it's all part of the fun. On approach be aware that unlike aircraft like the 737, the pitch response to power is reversed, that means a power increase will see the aircraft pitch down for a moment. This can lead to an oscillation developing, so be sure to fly the pitch attitude accurately. If you find you're wobbling up and down, aim to make smooth power changes, and remember the HUD flight path vector is useful tool, but can get you into trouble too. A useful check is 0.6 on the AoA index on approach. If it's higher than that, you're too slow. Remember Vref +5, and check your weights on the approach ref page. For the landing flare, lift the nose to to arrest the rate of descent, starting at just below 40 ft. Make a smooth power reduction and fly the aircraft onto the runway. The pitch attitude in the flare is around 3 degrees, but look at the end of the runway, not the HUD! You'll have plenty of time for butter later, so for now put the aircraft down positively in the touchdown zone. If you go butter hunting, you'll only find little bounces - ask me how I know! Once you've landed, extend the flight spoilers (the ground spoilers are automatic, but the flight spoilers need to be raised by pulling the lever), use the reversers and you're down. And stay away from that HLIS button, it'll trick you into making your landings worse!

  44. Hi Pils, I worked with the joystick curves tonight. Control Sensitivity and Stability Augmentation were all set at zero: My PFC Jetliner Yoke has a decent fore/aft range on it in elevator control, so I did not put that much of a response curve into the Pitch Axis Response Curve: The control wheel; however, has a much smaller range compared to the airplane/simulator. I followed Austin's example and used the in-sim control wheel displacement against my Yoke displacement as I moved the ailerons left and right. The ratio is 70:40 for roll axis and 60:40 for pitch axis. For the yaw axis, I was trying to replicate the maximum input I can get from my FlightLink rudder pedals: Full right rudder gives only a 70:100 ratio. Left rudder was a little better at 92:100 ratio. In neither case can get a 1:1 ratio. I have calibrated and re-calibrated my rudders. Any suggestions? As result, I set the Yaw Response Curve to a 70:100 ratio just to make sure that I'm getting full airplane/sim rudder with full rudder on my joystick. Alas, it did not fix my V1 cut issue. With full rudder, climbing out at V2 speed, the slip indicator in the Doghouse is still 3/4 to 1 full displacement when it should be centered. I'm going to have throw that one back you folks because I can't figure out how to fix it. With these response curves in roll and pitch, the airplane does fly better. I would like to try this configuration out in some windy days, and I bet KICT will oblige me soon enough. Thanks for your comments and help! Rich

  47. Time for a short update! I'm working on the system side and have almost done with the GUI and the weight and loading. So, let me explain the overall design philosophy, which extends to the whole project. Your role in the DC-9 is the Captain in command. You will have the role and the responsibilities due to that position. That means, for example, that you will adjust the fuel you need for your flight, but not in which tank the fuel will go. This will be done automatically by a background "load manager". The same with passengers and cargo. Of course, will be your responsibility to make sure that the loading limits are not exceeded! Image 1: Pax loading. The bottom graph displays the limits (red markers) and the blue and pink markers the current ZFW index and TOW Index respectively. The limits will also move depending the current gross weight, to project the 2D chart (see image 4) into a 1D line. I believe the rest are self-explanatory...how they work! Image 2: Cargo loading. Note: Each passenger is computed to carry 1 item of 13 kg baggage, which will take some cargo space. I will also add at the bottom the same graph as in the passengers tab. Image 3: Fuel Loading. You will just adjust the total fuel. Also I will add the same graph here too. Image 4: Aircraft Loading. This is the final tab you will have to look at, before you start your flight, because beyond having the full chart available, you will use the GW marker to check in which slope line you are close, to get the stab trim setting (STAB TO ANU) for the take off!.
