  1. Oh, just the locking and securing mechanisms, the hydraulic/pneumatic cylinders, guiding swing-arms, and the way the top of the door kinda swings down when the door is being opened and closed. I'm sure Stefan and Mathijs know what I'm talking about
  2. Can we have a look at the doors and the mechanisms for that again? I just wanna have another look at how good-looking that entire model is.
  3. But what percent is cargo and what percent is pax? And what about those hundreds of Amazon packages that HQ decided to stuff into your cargo hold as well to make a quick buck in freight charges? How do you know the ratio? I gotta say I like the idea, but I also like being able to individually allocate passengers and cargo.
  4. Hi, I have a bit of a weird situation here. I stopped flying the Airbus series for a few months and flew the ERJ's and PMDG 737's mostly...but I came back to the A319 recently and saw this screwy font appearing on my ND: Now I tried following steps to resolve this issue, and went over details in this thread, this thread, and this thread (although I didn't follow through with modifying the panel.cfg because that's a hackjob solution that is impossible to keep track of). Finally, in a last ditch effort, I uninstalled and reinstalled the Airbus package (A318, 19, 20, and 21), following ALL the steps of the uninstall to the letter, including restarting the computer between pretty much every single step. Nonetheless, the issue persisted, so I tried to resolve the issue using this thread one last time, and there were no changes. What should I do at this point to resolve this issue? Do note that this only appears on the MAP display on the ND, I don't see this font appearing on any other displays (as shown below): Installation details: FSX-Steam Edition Windows 7-64 Bit 16GB RAM More hard drive space than necessary i7 4790k
  5. That did it. Thanks, guys! Consider this topic closed.
  6. Yes I can. No it's not there. Checked via the Control Panel.
  7. Any thoughts? It's not a show stopper, but it does make the bus look a little dumb.
  8. I escaped steam using the "Exit Steam" option (the one that shuts it down, not the one that just closes windows). I didn't verify it in Task Manager, but Steam generally behaves itself on this PC. EDIT: I completed the reinstall doing all the above, this time verifying that steam was exited while doing the uninstalls and reinstalls. Took it a step further and even verified that my anti-virus was inactive. Nonetheless, the issue persists.
  9. Will the A330 come with padded corners and baby-proofing? Because I feel like I might accidentally cut myself on the sharp textures. HEYOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO...
  10. What's the consensus about the pilot/FO voice packages? Will you guys be willing to support an infrastructure for people to share voicepacks of various accents? I tried looking around and I could only find a handful of people sharing voicepacks of various accents. So far, French, British, German, Italian, and US seem to be the only options with User packs being an option. It would be nice if we could "install" more like Russian, Spanish, Dutch, Mandarin, Australian, etc. Anyone else have any input?
  11. If I wanted what's best for me, I'd be doing a master's degree and getting an instrument rating, not playing video games and eating steak every night.
  12. Will it be legal to fly the Airbus's in RVSM airspace? Does the FA serve coffee with cream or is it always gonna be black?
  13. Will the new busses include a guide to ergonomic seat positioning to prevent workplace muscoskeletal disorders caused by poor posture? EDIT: Jeez, where'd the sense of humor in this thread go?
  14. You can't just tease us like that. What's the other criteria?!?!?!?!
  15. How transferable will the liveries be? Or will livery artists have to redevelop all their work?
  16. Can we get an improved flight attendant? I prefer a 'non-sterile' cockpit, if y'know what I mean. ;))))
  17. Will the clock be improved? It feels more like a chinese Swatch knock-off, I need atomic clock precision when I'm flying. /s
  18. You run the sim on full screen?! You sir are a dying breed, I have it in windowed because I need to have my browser open for charts and such. EDIT: Not to mention that, although flying is fun, I can't stand sitting in a simulator cockpit for hours on end with nothing happening.
  19. Dude was just sharing his favorite photo of an A330, why you gotta have no chill on him fam?
  20. To further make the point, 2018 model year cars have already been released on the market, and it's barely September.
  21. This isn't a support question, but more of a curiosity thing. What exactly does entering the QNH, temperature, and winds in the MCDU PERF APPR page do? I never notice it doing anything, and I've tried upper and lower bounds just to see what would happen to the Vapp speed (if at all), and nothing happens. I tried going through the manuals to see what it does, but there's nothing there that talks about WHY we do it. Is it just to force the pilots to brief themselves on the arrival, and contribute nothing to the functionality of the approach?
  22. MCDU PERF APPR page

    Neat! How much of a change does the temperature impart on the descent profile though? I tried 50 and -50 and barely noticed any difference.
  23. Any chance we can get an update on the ramp crew's voice for the pushback? This guy sounds like he hates his job. EDIT: Nevermind, I just realized that it's probably a realistic representation of rampies
  24. No one ever complained about a runway being too bright
  25. Can we get some inside scoop with the whole CPDLC thing that's coming on VATSIM? I know you guys are a part of the whole deal and prepping your planes for such, so I'm curious to see what the current status is.
