  1. The key to your issue is in the 3rd picture Check your FMA: TOGA LK. Please check the Step By Step guide on the meaning of TOGA LK and how to turn it off again. When TOGA LK is not turned off by the pilot your engines are stuck in TOGA thrust. In the climb that is not an issue since the airplane holds the speed with the pitch, once you level off however you will accelerate until you overspeed which then triggers the overspeed protection which in return causes the Airbus to climb again to reduce speed. The Airbus turns on the probe heat automatically once the engines are started, thus it is not needed to turn on the switch manually. Always keep the dark cockpit philosophy in mind: When there are no lights on everything is fine.
  2. That's not entirely true, there are some A330s on the market, but you see the same "problem" with all of them: None is a 100% detailed systems simulation. In fact I believe none is even as detailed as our A320 series is. Reasons for this, among others, are that long haul aircraft generally do not sell as good as short haul aircraft. Many simmers do not have the time to fly long haul and thus prefer short haul aircraft. If you got the choice between an A320 and A330 as a developer you will likely pick the A320 since you get more sales for approx the same amount of work. Once you got the A320 you can then descide to build on it and go ahead with the A330. I'm not saying this is the only option to make a detailled long haul Airbus, but it surely is the most attractive.
  3. Yes and no. in each aircraft the crew does sort of the same. We're still operating in the same physics, so we're sort of using the smae methods to trick mother nature. The details are where things start to matter though. Do you have 6 fuel pumps or 20? What about Taxicam, EFBs, the all new radio equipment, datalink, the new FMGS (not just in terms of the layout to the pilot), ECAM, etc.? Do not think that just because "we onyl simulate the job of the pilot" there would be no systems code behind it. If you go some pages back and read on the discussion of the fuel tempratures you see what kind of detail goes into the systems. It's not all just faked numbers, lol As far as the A330 is concerned it turned out that even this "small" change in the aircrat type still comes along with a massive amount of work.
  4. Before spending several thousand Euros on a new computer I would wait and see how v4 will perform on your current system. Your present system looks pretty fine to me, outside of flight simulation (well, even inside flight simulation) many people would envy you for your system.
  5. Hi Jens, ich w├╝rde die Mails gerne einmal lesen, kannst Du sie mir als Screenshot per PM schicken und/oder mir die Ticketnummer nennen, falls Du mit support@ geschrieben hast?
  6. In all honesty, as long as there is no way to make full use of the 8.33kHz spacing ATC wise, it is really more of a pain in the a** to dial through those hundrets of frequencies to find the one you need. Should there ever be a way to fully use 8.33kHz ATC wise (VATSIM for example does not support this system yet, neither does any ATC addon) it will of course be considered. As of right now there is just no sense to simulate this.
  7. You will hear an official statement on that shortly. I do expect it to be similar to the v3 release in regards to sceneries, tools/aircraft might be different though due to the 64bit nature of v4 which does not allow a simple port over of a complex airplane. Just like with v3 before: If an addon can easily be ported over we'll do it. If technical difficoulties occure it is up to the developer if he wants to fix them. Do not expect 5 or 10 year old addons to be almost redeveloped to meet the new plattforms requirements.
  8. Hello, where did you read this? The maximum Flightlevel is FL396, so effectively 390 for practical operation.
  9. That's how cabins are done anyway. But it doesn't change the fact that each row still needs to be calculated seperately in the sim. And things like the galleys, etc. still have a lot of objects you can not simply copy.
  10. Probably our first Airbus X might work, I believe it was mainly an xml driven aircraft. But you clearly saw the limitations given by xml in this addon. Even if you can get it installed and running now though all compability might be lost with a major update Dovetail might do. P3D customers will know this, the difference i just that P3D was an official release already, where you do not expect groundbraking changes from a developers point of view, but Flight Sim World is an Early Access where basically anything can still change. As Mathijs told: Time will tell.
  11. Autothrottle has nothing to do with an overspeed condition, unless you are in TOGA LK mode, which you should disengage as soon as you are out of the dangerous area on departure.
  12. It is a development from ground up. All the systems code is written by Hans himself.
  13. Hi, if you are not running weather addons this may be the problem. FSX uses "weather blocks" and if you fly from one block into another your windspeed can change abruptly and without any warning. This in return causes the Airbus to overspeed or stall. In real life such wind changes in cruise are smooth and take a lot of time, therefore not affecting the airplane really much. Using a weather addon (be sure to check the addons featurelist to make sure wind smoothing is included!) or FSUIPC's wind smoothing should solve the issues you experience.
  14. There is no complete 2D Cockpit, only some popups will be available.
  15. They have first classes in CRJs? I've definately flown with the wrong airlines yet!
  16. mmh, but the fuel is usually stored in tanks some 10ft underneath the tarmac. It should be colder down there.
  17. Why not take her from the factory in Canada across the Atlantic over to Paris or whereever you want to base her? I always do that with any new airplane I get.
  18. Hello, which version of FSX do you use exactly? Maybe FSX:Steam? In that case you might need to install simconnect. Read up on it here: https://www.justflight.com/support/flight-simulator-x-steam-edition/384bffb
  19. I love these questions, I really do. The honest answer is: Well, then you are screwed anyway since you can't control the aircraft anymore. And even if you can still control the aircraft: No power -> No instruments, thus charts would be obsolete anyway.
  20. I believe there was an issue when you cross the 0z time. It is fixed in our A330 builds, so with the next A320 this will also be fixed.
  21. Which AIRAC exactly do you use? Could you tell us the exact AIRACs identifyer and your provider?
  22. Hi, I believe it is time dependant, when the page presently shown hasn't been shown for a certain time you can't change to the next one.
  23. Hi. probably not what you want to hear, but your zoomsetting is really far out. The fonts on a real Airbus display are very small and we even did them slightly bigger already to make them better readable on a computerscreen. Your viewpoint is pretty far out due to the zoom, depending ony our screen size this may cause the trouble you have. I am afraid there is, at least technically from our developers point of view, nothing in the Airbus we could change for this at the moment. If you zoom in a little, thus creating a more realistic viewpoint, you should get better results. Here is at which level I fly my aircraft, in this case the PMDG 747v3, on my 32" screen. At this zoomlevel I have no problems to read the texts on any aircraft:
  24. If you'd paint the brakes on a real aircraft white they'd probably stay white for about a week. The dust from the brakes and dirt on the runway will color them grey rather sooner than later. Therefore most airlines tend to paint them in a color, so did the airline from whom we got our reference aircraft for this model.
  25. There were a few in the past already which also showed some systems. You may still find them with the search button.
