  1. Cameron, Goran and the team: Guys - just keep your heads down and keep at it. I lead a software development team and I know the pressures of "can you give me a timeline..." You just have to have a canned answer and keep giving it so that you're not distracted/diverted into cutting corners just to keep folks quiet. You have a wonderful product that deserves your time and attention. In this age of "I want it NOW!!" it is tempting do something - even answer the same question again and again. Don't. 1.5.1 is giving me loads of enjoyment right now - looking forward to all you have in

  3. This will serve as a formal forum announcement that we have released the version 1.1 update for the SR22 Series. All customers who have purchased the SR22 Series 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 SR22 Series from today forward, your purchased download will already be updated to version 1.1 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 c

  5. Hi thanks for the response. I will have a look. Haven't had time to delve into the manual fully yet so was not aware. Though, some sort of response in-sim would be great. I take the Hotstart TBM900 as an example in that you can see in-sim the level of component wear. Even a message to say i.e. "Maintenance records updated, see logbook for details" or similar would be advantageous.

    ACF Mesh Tools for Linux and Windows ACF Mesh Tools allows you to edit and modify the plane's meshes from the ACF file. Be aware: those tools are not made to edit the OBJ8 files as they work only with the ACF file format. HOW ACF MESH TOOLS WORKS Let's take as example the default Laminar's Cessna 172, a great model very well done (aestetically and internally). We know that in Plane Maker the fuselage is made out of cross-sections: ...and those cross-sections creates a mesh: Those meshes, made out of cross-sections, are the ones that PlaneMaker uses as model for the

  7. Sure, I understand. I did speak to Saso earlier about this, and he did say he'll look more into it, and if it proves to be much better, overall, we would look more into using dds textures.

  14. Just to close this out, FlyWithLua has a built in module called radio.lua which executes the following code, amongst other things for consistency within scripts: dataref("COM1_STDBY", "sim/cockpit2/radios/actuators/com1_standby_frequency_hz", "writable") dataref("COM2_STDBY", "sim/cockpit2/radios/actuators/com2_standby_frequency_hz", "writable") Setting those to "readable" will solve the issue, but doesn't help for those that intend to write to the datarefs from their Lua scripts. Using the 8.3 khz spacing datarefs will also fix the problem. dataref("COM1_STDBY", "sim/cockpit2/radio

  16. A bit more progress on the cockpit. The window trim proved to be really difficult to get lined up where everything looks "proportionate" with all the reference pictures / angles. But with those out of the way, things are moving a bit quicker again. The panel shown here is th legacy panel, not the new one...so that also will get a "detail" makeover. -tkyler

  21. This is a superb rendition of an SR20 and I applaud you. One little annoyance that I have is that the Mixture lever sound file seems to go crazy when I am at the extreme limit of my saitek throttle quadrant. I tried assigning the prop lever to mixture and the same thing happens. The sound is the sound when you either move the lever to the full forward or aft position. It keeps repeating itself. It may just be the Saitek quadrant since it uses potentiometers as its means of control. Otherwise It is a masterpiece. (But so was the SR22)

  23. Goran, I've been flying the HotStart TBM for ages now and she's a beast!! I can confirm that of the 5 airports I've visited in the last 24Hrs (TBM was parked for a while) there was no Localiser for any ILS. Xplane version 11.50 Navigraph Data 2012. I've got a few hundred hours in your TBM and I'd be very happy to help with beta testing any updates. Keep up the great work guys and yes some of us here understand just how long updates can take especially on an ever evolving platform.

  24. Thanks for the help, I found the culprit to be a Lua script in FlyWithLua NG that had require("radio") at the top, removing the script, or even commenting out that single line made the problem go away.

  25. Alright, I think I have a fix coded up here. The underlying issue is that X-Plane tells us when we're drawing different eyes in VR, but it doesn't tell us when we're drawing different screens on a multi-monitor display. This led to the shadow map intended for one monitor getting used on other ones where it doesn't match up. I figured out a workaround, though. Our next release should have this fixed.

  26. Since the release of the Take Command! SR22 Series, we have been hard at work adding features, fixing bugs, and making general improvements throughout! We are preparing to enter a Public Beta in the coming days (if you are interested in being a part of the Public Beta, you can sign up for a spot here – Note: spots are limited), followed by a general release to everyone once it is ready! Here are some of the key features we have implemented: G1000 Terrain Profile Indicator We have integrated a custom terrain profile indicator on the MFD. This will help for situational awareness,

  27. Thanks very much, Frank and rawdmon! Switching from the Hosek-Wilkie sky model to the standard one does indeed alleviate the situation as a work around. I've filed a support ticket with JF and included both the suggestion about point size and this temporary work-around fix in my communications with them, so hopefully it'll all get sorted in good order. However the case, I've attached a screenshot of the issue to this post to show what's going on. Many thanks again! ym

  28. Have you tried selecting to use the standard sky in the SkyMaxx cloud settings screen then restarting Xplane? The Hosek-wilkie sky model may be what's interfering with that.

  31. I don't know how many times we can repeat "We're working on it...", because that's what we're doing. The other reply is "It's finished and in the store." Since we can't say the latter, because it isn't true, all we can say is "We're working on it." I really don't know what else you want.

  35. Following the wonderful reception of the TorqueSim/RealSimGear Take Command! SR22 Series, we have been hard at work developing the Take Command! SR20 to complement it! This is not a simple modification: it is a product of thousands of hours of work, creating the highest quality rendition of the aircraft for X-Plane. The X-Aviation Take Command! brand of products represents the very best of flight simulation immersion, and assures you this TorqueSim product is one of the most sophisticated, study sim level aircraft available for X-Plane!

  37. To change liveries, simply go into your Flight Configuration, and change the livery from the drop down menu.... The AoA HUD is not working in Vulkan/Metal, but we do have a copy of the TBM in the hands of some testers, and it does work in that version, although, not in VR yet. Once we get that straightened out, we'll publish another update.

  39. If you get the version thats out now, you get V2 at a substantial discount. If you don't get the one that's available now, you'll pay full price for V2. Either way, it'll work out to be about the same price.

  40. Ok. Here's the official word. The big update will be a paid update for current customers, but it won't be full price. It will have more features than the current version that is available in the store. It will have more systems modelled (working circuit breakers being 1 of them, as part of a newly coded electrical system. However, this is dependant on us getting our hands on the electrical schematics) 100% new art assets. (3D mesh, PBR textures, lighting) Improved flight model (The flight model is likely the only thing that will not be done from the ground up.)

  42. Greetings, just struggled with this myself. Had to refer to a variety of resources. The Ringler video was one that helped. Key is to enter the VNAV values you want. You must hit the VNAV button on the autopilot and select a lower altitude within 5 minutes before you reach the TOD point on your GPS course line. I read that a minute before is best. After engaging VNAV and dialing in a lower altitude, deselect the altitude button and watch your display. When the aircraft symbol reaches the TOD (top of descent) symbol, represented by a small circle on your course line, the aircraft shou
