  2. In addition to the VNAV work we have also these fixes lined up for the next update: Improvements * Added switch in aircraft file to always force experimental flight model on * Improved tracking ability of nosewheel in tight turns (less skidding) * A "direct to" turn will not attempt to re-intercept the line between current aircraft position and the waypoint * Yoke checklist can now be flipped up and down and yellow bug goes all the way to top again * Added a dataref to indicate if autothrottle is active or not * Added a preference to "pause on Top of Descent" Bug fi

  4. Ok, I've revisited this topic with Saso (programmer and flight model author), and this is the official word from both of us. Any future questions about P-factor/propeller induced roll, will go unanswered. I suppose the proverbial arm twisting has had an effect. Thank you for your feedback. We're aware there are some flight dynamics missing in the takeoff department and we'll be addressing those issues in a future update.

  5. Here is a hot fix file to address the HSI 180° offset with the panel lights turned on. To install, just place this png inside the X-Plane 11/Aircraft/TorqueSim BN-2T Turbine Islander/objects folder replacing the file of the same name. (2T_gauges_LIT.png) 2T_gauges_LIT.png.zip

  6. TorqueSim, RealSimGear, and X-Aviation are excited to finally announce our next products coming to X-Plane, the Take Command! SR20 and Take Command! SR22 Series, Entegra Edition. The SR22 Series will include both the normally-aspirated and Turbo-Normalized variants. These aircraft are our most complex simulations to-date. Brand-new custom avionics, the TorqueSim physics engine, our maintenance and wear system, all paired with a gorgeous 3D model and a phenomenal sound pack. And that is just the beginning! We are entering the testing phase of this aircraft now. No release date has bee

  7. more 3D porn for the attentive. Nowadays, the 3D has to deliver excruciating detail, so its a big screenshot so nobody is getting faked out. Immersion is the name of the game! I'm getting close to wrapping up the cockpit geometry (texturing is another matter). After that I move to some details on the landing gear, then the wings...then FMOD sounds and the programming and texturing; however, with as much experience as I've had with this aircraft, I don't think the programming of the systems is the long straw. Its a relatively simple (but FAST!) aircraft and I have lots of legacy code from

  8. @AlyMacHere's an Oscar Papa repaint! Did two versions ('80s with the black belly, and '90s with the black stripe). Hope it lives up to the original! Wouldn't have known about those lovely liveries without seeing your post, thanks!!

  9. I narrowed down to what causes sound loss. HP Reverb G2 requires both WMR + SteamVR. When WMR is launched, it briefly takes over the default sound device. When this happens while TBM is running, the sound is lost. The work around is simple. Launch WMR BEFORE launching X-Plane 11. Then TBM will not loose sound anymore and toggling between 2D and VR has no negative impact.

  11. @Goran_Mthe persistence is what makes this aircraft so great. Many a times I had to motor the engine before my next leg, because ITT was too high. Or getting ready to taxi and find out your trim isn't working because of maintenance issue and you have to shut the engine down and fix it. So many things that are made better by persistence. I can even restart x-plane and find the engine covers is not on yet because the engine has not cooled down. And yes I would love the P-factor back. I just love this "little" aircraft.

  14. We are currently on Version 1.1.13 beta 12, which was sent out a few days ago. There were 3 fixes in that version (The less fixes there are, the closer we get to a release) If that version proves bug free, the update will be considered ready.

  15. That's interesting indeed. If this is true I would really appreciate a setting to switch clouds intercation with wind off to get much better performance, this is especially true for people using lower end GPUs. For me personally having moving clouds is not that important, it's a cool feature but it comes at the cost of massive FPS loss I would like to turn it off.

  16. Quick update: We are deep into the VNAV rewrite. Not just poking around and tweaking....we're cutting out huge swaths of inefficient code....and I have to say, its going really well so far. I believe this will make the VNAV calculations an order of magnitude easier to perform.....and if there are any issues during testing, at least I don't believe it will be "whack-a-mole" where one bug creates another. We'll keep you posted. We are working on this regularly at this juncture. -tkyler

  17. Cool. Maybe something to consider for v2. Definitely not going to be implemented in the current run. The purpose of this update went above and beyond, and after being on the market for 8 years with free updates it's time to move on from new features in this run.

  18. I am able to map both CLs to individual axis, but moving it to the Start position does not properly find the Start detent, no mater how I jiggle it to try and find the detent. The mouse will not move the tiller either and I have Hyd pressure - both engines started via the automatic starter.

  19. It has been a while since the last update, so let's see another system; the navigation equipment of our DC-3. Since this is a vintage bird, you should not expect less than vintage navigation equipment, and this is what you'll get. The aircraft has 4 navigation radios located in the middle of the overhead area. There are 2 VHF NAV radios (VOR) and 2 ADF radios. On the Captain's panel are installed two DME counters for VOR1 and VOR2, one Radio Magnetic Indicator (RMI) with #1 needle (green) showing the NDB station tuned into ADF1 radio, and the #2 needle the VOR1 station.

  20. Definitely something we will consider when we revisit the GUI (also for VR). Transferring these values is just writing them to the variables we have, so that should be fairly easy! Viele Grüße, Jan

  25. Thank you very much for the support, it was the SCEL scenery due to its large name in the "apt.dat" file, I just disabled it first in order to test before editing the name and the TBM900 worked fine. I also have the JAR Ground Handling plugin but I didn't remove it.

  26. I'm completely lost for words. So much time was spent coding this, and we're getting called "amateurs" for it. It's up there with "Your TBM is too realistic! Can you do something about making a choice between basic mode and realistic mode?" Yes, we've been accused of the TBM being too realistic. @TBMpilot I'm sorry our TBM is far too realistic, or, in your words, "amateurish" for you. Perhaps the "OTHER" TBM is more suited for your needs. No persistence. Basic systems. Get in and fly. But as @rjb4000 mentioned, the product page has full disclosure on what is in our TBM. And

  27. At the end of the day it's a simulator; so it should simulate. If you leave something a certain way in a real aircraft then guess how it'll be the next time someone returns to the aircraft? It's doing what it should do -- and it's one of the features I like.

  29. We did just find and fix a bug here that could lead to rendering errors and possibly even a crash if thunderstorms (cumulonimbus clouds) are present. If you crashed after flying through stormy weather, that might be why. I'll be handing off a 5.0.6 build soon to fix that. Apart from that issue, you should be able to find a compromise between AA and performance that works for you.

  30. It is hard for me to tell what problem you are actually suffering from. Entering restrictions into the LEGS page should mostly work, although the plane will often not meet them in VNAV. The file "This is Aerosoft.txt" file should not matter if you updated your navdata correctly with Navigraph data. It is not read by the code. We are currently rewriting the vertical navigation code, this should make the plane adhere to restrictions, both from the database and also from user entry. For now I would suggest not adding/changing any restrictions and just achieving them with selected autopi

  31. Using SkyMaxx Pro's volumetric clouds with X-Plane 11.51, my FPS goes from high thirties to low forties while flying low over Orbx London scenery (lots of clouds) in the Rotate MD-80, but the flight is very smooth. My system is an i9 9900K running at 4700MHz with an RTX 2080 Ti and 1440p monitor. Keep up the good work.

  33. Hello guys! Something is not right somewhere. I just fired up the latest TBM update to check on this. LAX - easy to get VOR bearings on several transmitters. No problem at all. So what's going on with your sims? Please post log.txt files - and I believe there are similar files for X-Aviation aircraft as well. Send those along too. Not that they will mean anything to me but @Goran_M and others will make sense of them. Additional thought - if this was a "broad" issue we would have heard more about it here on the forums. Let's get this solved for you. The TBM still rules as (one of - h

  35. @Coop OK. I still seem to need a lot of down trim, no matter how I load the plane, however I obviously accept your explanation. The trim quadrant markings are heavily biased to the up position, which would seem to indicate that the manufacturer expected one to need quite a bit of nose-up trim at some time. Or, was it the fact that they would have used the same part from the avgas version, and it bears little relation to the expected behaviour of the turbine version? I find the differences in loading the two varieties quite interesting. The swapping of the avgas engines for the turbines

  38. Thanks, I did not know about the apt.dat file, that was the piece of missing info I needed. Looking into this solved an other problem, turns out the Toliss A319 did not had a database problem, it looks if the runway is long enough, if not you can not program the mcdu. I just tried the beta version of gizmo, but It did not solve the gizmo crash. But I leave it like it is for now, before I change things to get worse I am very good at that

  40. You have quite a few plugins loading. I also see the GTN loading. Have you implemented this into the TBM or is it just loading on the side? Try removing it and see if it crashes. If it still crashes, you may have to remove all 3rd party plugins, and then testing again. If it doesn't crash, replace your plugins, one at a time until it crashes, then post back results. We can then determine if we can work around the crash or if it's something in the plugin causing it.

  41. The red/green knobs control which wing each engine is fueled from (be it main or tip) The metal switches control whether the wing is feeding from the main or the tip tanks Yes. The middle switch controls the tank selection lights Yes, tip tank gauges are on the right sidewall near the ceiling Yup! Keep some reserve in the mains and then feed from the tips once you reach reserves on the mains.

  42. Until then, just use the Load Sheet from the Documentation. I created a table to automatically calculate everything, so I just need to enter the total load and CG in X-Plane. I don’t know if all calculations and conditional markings of cells work when converting from Apple Numbers to Excel or Google, but you can try if you want. Weight and Balance should work just fine, the other tables are more WIP. BN-2 Weight Balance 2.xlsx

  43. 737ng can be flown without FMS and I did it a copule of years ago(Both FMS failure at an airport with no maintance cover). You just set the vspeed and N1 limit using the knobs instead. Regarding the RNAV, Airports should have contingency procedures in case an aircraft lose its rnav capability(eg:omnidirectional departure or radio aids to hold in case of radio failure). In Salzburg the airways bring you directly over the VOR and from there you can star your procedure.
