  1. We have a new batch of testers that are checking the plane out as we speak. They are all very excited to fly the bird but as we are in an early alpha state there is a lot to be done. A lot of VC switches must get a clickspot for example and we are finetuning the FBW. There after the VNAV part will get a lot of attention. Functions like ETP, constant Mach, holdings, Step climbs and AOC pages are coming along nicely. The real brunt will be the betatesting that has not yet begun. Oh yeah, did I already say that the FPS are terrific?
  2. The 700 and 900 versions I flew IRL both had that function and the simulated ones will also have it.
  3. And one from the VC for good measure....
  4. That is not how it works Layth23. Aerosoft is producing the A330 and Aerosoft as such will decide what sounds in what form will be used. TSS will supply Aerosoft with sounds yes, but Aerosoft has control over that and not TSS. In short, asking us (Aerosoft) here is the correct place.
  5. Aerosoft always has preview topics of products in development. No surprise here but do not expect an A320 2017 preview anytime soon.
  6. Wait for the A320 2017 preview forum to open please. We are only working on the A330 now. Thanks.
  7. I am looking forward to the TCAS and Transponder questions.
  8. No, it will be the thousands of support questions a day after release.
  9. I would love to have a Skelsey Info Corner here in the forums but as he joined another team that is not possible anymore. I value Simon's inputs here very much but do consider that this is an AS support section of the forum and this topic has been effectively hijacked. Please do continue this conversation for the benefit of everybody reading here but do so in the general section of the AS airbus forum. Thanks
  10. Maybe it will be included when AS will redo the A320Fam later this year as a new product. Development for the current product has seized over an year already.
  11. Hey Skelsey, getting bored at the FSL forum?
  12. There is no option to do this with the AS A320. Wind input is not modeled at all for this product.
  13. For me the whole boxed release date is as old as flightsimming itself. How many times did I go to my local computerstore in the early nineties to ask when XY flightsim was in stock. (Pre-internet times) It was always next week or soon. Computer magazines at that time even had a page with expected release dates that were rubbish. I do not like this practice either but is with us since day one and it will be with us as long as there are publishers and resellers. It is just the nature of the beast. I want to note though that nobody who pre-ordered the CRJ boxed edition had to pay for it yet. Also be aware that the boxed edition is always released a few weeks after the download release. I would always opt for the download myself and have the product on my harddrive the minute it is available.
  14. Correct. It has been discussed a few times already here.
  15. It already is with the AS A320 series and will also be part of the AS A330 yes.
  16. Never tried it, I always map the function to my joystick.
  17. In Europe it is a common thing with lowcost airlines for example. Every airport has its own rules and procedures. Some require a firetruck alongside the aircraft when refueling with pax onboard.
  18. 1) They are already on when boarding starts. Except when refueling takes place during boarding. 2) 10.000 feet is the normal "release" altitude. 3) shorthaul 15 minutes before landing, longhaul 25 minutes. Give or take.
  19. Could you post the details about your flight so that we can fly and try it for ourselves? And just to be sure, you do have the latest version installed as admin and have FPS above 18?
  20. Hi Goshob, how many times did this happen to you?
  21. Hoi Remco, The Airbus extended never had the connectd flight deck function if you talk about that when you say shared cockpit. The newest versions of the A318-321 with V1.30 and above have the CFD function. So if your friend has this version you can also buy the current version and you two can fly together as one crew.
  22. Let's first be clear here. It seems you do not have an autopilot issue but an autothrust issue. Could you make a screenshot of the PFD when these problems first occur? What CI do you fly? Was there a large windchange when the problem starts? Thanks
  23. It is the most delayed piece of flightsim software ever to be announced.
