Are more failures by chance on the roadmap?
It is great that some failures are available for BAe 146 in the MSFS aircraft customization menu. Those appear to be standard issues associated with jet engines and shared with other default and third party aircraft. You can set a time frame for a failure to happen, setting very long frames effectively makes these situations unexpected. E.g., enabling an oil leak between 20th and 6020th minutes gives you 1% emergency chance with 1 hour flight time.
Having a low chance of unexpected emergency keeps you on your toes and makes the flights more realistic. Unfortunately these are only related to the engines while it would be great to have some of these as well:
- loss of pressure in yellow or green hydraulic systems;
- fuel pump failures;
- fuel leaks;
- generator failures;
- autopilot and NAV radio failures;
- altitude and airspeed indication failures (non icing related).
The possibilities are endless but hydraulics would probably be the most fun with so many systems affected and backup options already available. So many checklist items are related to hydraulics and while it is a good practice to follow these at all times it feels somewhat pointless knowing they can never fail.
It may be a deceptive impression but some of these failures seem quite easy to implement. They could be enabled from the EFB if MSFS does not allow adding custom entries to the failures menu.
This functionality is already available in third party tools like RandFailuresFS2020 but they seem to have compatibility issues with latest SUs and I don't think such tools would work well with complex models like 146.
Have you ever considered implementing this? I personally would love having such options even at extra cost.
