Are there going to be any more updates for the Piper Warrior?
I know it was submitted to MS for inclusion in the Marketplace, but does that mean there aren't going to be any more updates? There are still a few minor issues with the aircraft that would be nice to have updated:
- Volume on KX-170B and KX-175B do not retain state from flight to flight, always have to turn volume up to hear ATC.
- With the cockpit window open, external noises are audible, but not with the door open.
- The lack of performance degradation with the Wheel Fairings removed.
Those are the items I can think of, but I think there are a couple of others. Again, they are minor but would be nice to have them updated at some point.
Oh, and still on my wish list, a female pilot avatar, I know JF is aware, but just wanted to poke it again. A couple of other people has asked for it as well.
@katchaplin I have noticed JF has not kept the same pace of releasing updates for its aircrafts (Arrow III, Turbo Arrow III/IV & Warrior II). I am very disappointed with that for keeping its aircrafts up-to-date on a regular basis was what separated JF from other companies in the market. It's about time to get a new fresh update for these aircrafts, there are just a few minor issues to be fixed, let's hope JF will be back on track.
@anderson There will be more updates soon for the Piper fleet. It's not quite that simple to continue to update these aircraft at the same speed that we did post release. We're forever chasing our tails given the regularity of updates for the host sim that invariably cause problems with the aircraft that were't there originally and getting the fixes done, tested approved on a regular basis isn't simple. We also have to turn our attention to other projects that we are aiming to release for MSFS and get those progressed as best we can. The internal team isn't massive, we have limited resource so have to manage and prioritise the workload and projects accordingly. If the issues with the Piper's were deal breakers rest assured they'd be addressed and updates would where possible be out by now but there comes a time when we have to move on and park what we have with the Pipers knowing that they are still very much functional and people are still in the main enjoying them immensely. But rest assured they'll be looked at pretty soon. We aim to get the Hawk released quite soon and once done then we'll be back on the GA stuff with a view to releasing an update for all of them. Some work is already underway but they need a lot more time and attention. It's scheduled in, don't worry about that though. Thanks for your interest and past custom.
Thanks for the update, that's what I was looking for. As you said, none of the issues is a deal-breaker, love flying the Warrior.
