  1. Even the real Airbus has problems with the linedrawing, so no, ours will not be perfect there.
  2. Just like our A320 which also had them
  3. It's actually mostly a mixture between 1024 and 2048 textures. High resolution must not mean that it is all 4096, it's more a question of how big the areas on a panel are that you "assign" to the texture. If you want to know more on this do a forumsearch, this question came up a year ago or so and Stefan had a really great explanation in detail back then!
  4. Personally I think LIDO better structured, it is easier to find things you are looking for and they are basically easier to read. More obvious than Jeppessen. LIDO did a very good job constructing their charts, in fact it was one of their main focusses when they designed their charts. Using Jeppessen in flight school and LIDO in flight simming I definately prefer the LIDO set. At this moment we do not have plans to change our chart provider. We will stay with LIDO for the foreseeable future.
  5. Well, I can see sort of a sense in it. For example on a non precision approach if the missed approach altitude is lower than the initial altitude. If you'd set the missed approach altitude in the MCP or FCU of a Boeing or Airbus you would level off on the descend in V/S mode. If you do not arm ALT SEL in the Dash you'll continue the descent. With the operator whos procedures I know the standart calls had been modified with the Dash 8. They no longer called "1000ft to level off", but "1000ft to level off, ALT SEL" to cross check it every time.
  6. As far as I know we have no plans to change our provider. We have been working with LIDO for years already, even before we released our chartproduct. To be 100% sure I will ask the projectmanager and will report back though.
  7. Nope, luckily not!
  8. Before starting to fly the CRJ beta I thought I'd prepare myself by flying another Bombardier plane (aka the Dash 8). Well, let me say that much: I reconned there is a control culomn and there are throttles in this plane, perhaps even flight deck windows and pilot seats. The rest I had to learn from ground up.
  9. If you want it more realistic do so over the secondary flight plan. That's where you would normally do such changes in order not to "destroy" your active flight plan in case of database errors in the newly selected procedures whatsoever.
  10. And which buttons would that be that you'd like to see simulated?
  11. If somebody screws up 40 seconds are a seriously LONG time until you finally have control. A quick change between master and slave would be much easier. I like the idea of a clickspot on the side stick priority warning light for a fast changeover without the need to navigate down to the third MCDU. I'll forward it for internal discussion with the developers, project advisors, beta testers and project manager.
  12. Landing rate is indeed something overrated in flight simulation. In real life there are many situations where a landing of about 300-400 feet per minute is very appropriate. Some pilots even say no landing with less than 200-300fpm is a good landing. BUT: Since you have no real feedback about your landing in a flight simulator (it doens't require you to visit the orthopaedist if you screw up) I can fully understand why people want such a feedback. Expecially in larger aircraft like the A330, 777 or 747 you can hardly judge your landing just by looking out of the window or by instrument readings. There are a lot of nice tools available that can measure your landing rate already, so we do not see the need to include such a feature in our A330.
  13. I've edited my post seconds before you posted As soon as the livery is done we will show it
  14. Unlikely, let us first complete the aircraft model and "basic" paint itself before starting on liveries. Liveries are usually the last thing to be done before finishing the modelling/textureing.
