@N293WK Thank you very much. This was indeed the problem. @Derek I never received any feedback for my open support tickets. No I cannot even login any more as the page "log in as customer" comes up with "file not found"... Glad I got the issue solved from this friendly formum. Thanks to all
Is there any way of dialling down the levels of sound volume on the Hawk? At present the volume of all sounds appears to be out of step with other aircraft in the sim. As a result, when loading up the aircraft having previously flown something else, it's necessary to turn down the master volume in the sim settings in order to hear yourself think. Then, when switching to any other aircraft, you need to remember to turn up the master volume in the sim again.
@shutts Next time look at the volts on your battery. It was probably too low. Having the battery switched on while futzing with the radios and nav systems (with lighting on, too) will drain the battery fairly quickly, preventing the electronic fuel pump from working. You can recharge the battery from the EFB. You can also disable the “State Saving” feature and restart the flight from the Main menu—which will reinitialize everything (from a new [not saved] state).
@tonybero As long as the wings are swept fully forward and the wing sweep cover is down, the flaps should operate normally on the ground. Once airborne, they operate as manoeuvre flaps for air combat, and at higher speeds auto-retract once the wings sweep back.
If this is not happening, then I suspect there is something sim-based that is blocking them, which is currently a thing with MSFS - different people experiencing different bugs. My spoilers would not work on any aircraft for ages for instance, and then suddenly started working again.
I checked the flap movements here and they're operating normally. Drop me another line if nothing works ( try an aircraft re-install too, sometimes that clears up these things ).
@dc1973 Thanks Dean, although my 1st carrier landing attempt wasn't so beautiful xD I botched that one, but got away with it for a successful go around and a safe conclusion with a good trap.
Appreciate your hard work.
@dc1973 Understand, I was a little aggravated at first but I think we can all work together to get it like it needs to be. The biggest thing we noticed was acceleration issues. Have you flown the Eurofighter model yet? Also if you want to do a T38 N version we both have time in that aircraft. Please dont take my comments personal above we are all good, will be really neat for us to be a part of a potential update to the model
@mr-robota It can be done, but only with changes to the HTML code, which you would have to research. I would not want to change the base aircraft's HUD colour as it's that colour ( or thereabouts ) in real life.
@katchaplin Yes I am also thinking there may be a conflict with another add on. I removed all of my add on liveries for JF planes and have not had this type of issue repeat so far. So I don't think there is an issue with the GTN750/650. I just put back one recent livery for the Warrior and I will be looking to see if the random bugs come back. I have previously found strange bugs caused by custom interior add ons that had not been updated. I am also really enjoying the docile Warrior for relaxing flights as well as practicing instrument approaches. Don't know what JF did to make their aircraft handle so realistically. Thanks for your thoughts.
Interesting that there are two of us. We could of course be imagining things both of us, but it really feels way more unstable now - I've not had any more crashes but it behaves the same.
I have no idea which is the more realistic behavior. It certainly makes landings more... exciting? Before, I could more or less throw the aircraft in the general direction of the airport and be fine. Now much more care is necessary.
@superkaro2014 I solved it. First time I unzip the zipfile (PMS GTN750...) to another map and copy paste in to community folder. This is not good. I unzip directly in community folder and now it's work fine. I don't know way this is but so it's works.
I noticed some of the decal textures appear to be placed polys with alpha textures ( so they look sharper than the projected mesh decals ) but it did add a little bit of z-fighting in places... not terrible though...
This is unacceptable for a response and you know it as the fact is the seat is not a "feature" of the real life aircraft it is actual fact.
Please see above, GA aircraft are routinely modified and many of the features of all our PA28s differ from the original manufacturer configuration, just like in real life. Hopefully it's pretty obvious from all the significant and smaller differences between our PA28s that these were not simple copy-and-paste projects. Each is uniquely configured to match our chosen real world research aircraft.
It's already been made clear by me above that we will look at adding the option of reverting to the original rear bench/sofa for those that prefer that configuration, but I think we need to appreciate that it's a relatively niche request, hence it not being discussed by the thousands of owners before now. That's not to say it's not a worthwhile suggestion but it's but no means indictive of short-cuts being taken in the development of the aircraft.
