@Delta558 Thanks again. The next day, I was able to select "Ready for Takeoff," and discovered that means "Eventually . . . ."
If you wait a while, all 4 engines spool up. So now at least I can get off the ground.
I'll try again later to do a cold start.
BTW, notwithstanding p. 57 of the Manual, saving a flight does NOT save the panel state. Yesterday I saved a flight at 32,000.'
When I loaded that scenario today, I was at 32,000', but no engines on, and the landing gear extended!
Thanks for that - it works. I feel slightly stupid now for not working that out myself!!!!!!!
Just another question if that's OK! When I load the Duchess I get a "crashing" sound - is this normal? This doesn't affect anything else and the aircraft flies fine, so I'm happy to live with this initial noise but just curious as to what might cause it?
I have installed with the new V5 installer, but have an issue with the glass.
When you look down on to it no problems.
However against the sky and background it is doing this.
Also having the same trouble with the Tornado.
Have I missed something or is it a known issue?
Done to death beforehand on the old forum and over at Avsim. We had plenty of real-world Arrow pilots involved, both initially and then joining in for the initial SP. One (and only one) was adamant that there should be a strong nose-up pitching on flap extension, the rest were insistent on a fairly stable / nose down tendency. The POH doesn't help, mentioning pitching but not stating which way, but it does say that it can be easily held by hand rather than needing trimming out.
I seem to recall discussions on PPrune as well as among our testers where the same aircraft was accused of pitching either up or down, dependant on who you listened to. It's been a long time since I worked on these files, but I think that what was settled upon was a very slight upwards pitching on flap extension but that the drag created (and resultant slowing of the aircraft) would pull the nose back down.
It's a really difficult situation, there is no 'black and white' definitive answer to your question, only about ten pilots / owners who would each give their own fairly in-depth description and what we ended up with was what you have.
I did, but obviously they did not get the point, simply telling me that the effects are installed into the main P3D effects folder. Which is plain stupid to have either an add-on.xml pointing to an empty or non-existent effects folder and instead installing the effects into the root directory if the plane is basically using the add-on.xml method. Sorry to say, that is just lousy coding... Fixed the add-on.xml myself by simply removing the Effects part, but come on...
Just wondering if we can expect support for P3Dv5 any time soon.
I just did an experiment where I copied the folder from the v4 add-ons folder to the v5 add-ons folder and it caused a CTD when V5 tried to load the aircraft.
@f16jockey said in De Havilland DH106 Comet 4:
Maybe that's OK for JF quality control, but not for me. Sorry.
It came out over 8 years ago. Did you report this to Support? If so, what response did you get? The aircraft was patched after release to clear a few reported bugs but this wasn't one of them.
I just moved my copy over to P3dV4.5hf1. The sim is functional for me with no graphics errors. There are numerous problems with the flight model and engine problems, but it installed and otherwise functions.
I see you have changed to BLDK2.dds for the new release vol3 (p.s. dont forget to change the airport AGN's in an update). I have to say the improvement visually is great, the odd anomaly but much improved experience, thanks
Only 1 observation may be by design or possibly limitation, within the urban areas there is little or no vegetation mixed amongst the housing, not really detrimental, more me being picky, either way more than happy with the results and much recommended.
Apparently, there are no immediate plans to add military traffic to TG and, although they do say that there will be an upgrade the current GA (which is just a mix of a few T360 and default planes), probably after final release.
