Gentlemen, myladies,

I closed the previous topic as it was very long and rather polluted with posts that had little to do with the project. I kindly request you not to posts to many 'looks great', 'can you posts more screenshots' etc messages. I would like to keep this rather short and on topic if possible.

Fully updatable nav database

I guess so, I see this changed and now it's a sure buy for me ! Great work the model looks excellent and the VC is great as well !

Congrats on your work and good luck with the polishing ;)

One little question will there be a 2D pop up of the FMS ? I like to put that on my tactile screen... Crossing fingers ;)

We will use the default (no specific) format from Navigraph. So you will just be able to copy the new database without any fuss. No special formats.

We expect a small minority of users will actually update, but we did not want to make it impossible.

If you do not expect the full graphics of the bezel etc I think that can be done. We got it now as test. Might be we'll not include that in the build but we can help you edit the panel file for that.

I'm not sure if it has been asked but are the interior lights multi-staged? And is it possible to change the colour of the FCU numbers?

WOW, this is looking fantastic! ^_^ Mathijs, could we get a video of the Airbus in VC view lining up with the runway and going through a standard takeoff? Would love to hear how real it sounds to the real thing!

I really can't wait, wow,

James W.

No and no. Nice feature for sure but one of those things a customer does one time (full sunlight or a moonless night does not change the readability of part of the screen in FS after all, right?) and never again. If you allow me to say so, it's something that looks good on a feature list, but having seen hundreds of customers over the years using our products these things are simply not used.

Dear Mathijs! The external parameters I think this will be the best airbus, but I'm sure that many like me will be happy to get a more advanced fms, since there was already a default airbus for children who can arrange to vote for a more advanced system? Or make additions later ...

Sincerely Kirill!

Well why don't you load the default Airbus and start to compare what I posted and what that one has to offer? Might save you buying this one, though I am sure you'll soon see the fault in your logic. Now we are considering a more advanced FMCS (no FMS in an Airbus as it does a lot more then in a Boeing) but the commercial market for those things is very small. We'll see, nothing planned right now.

You can always look at the Airsimmers bus. They do go very deep into the systems and while things are still a lot in the air, they also say they will make a version for FSX.

It's looking brilliant.

This might have been axked before but will all the lights be 3D lights or just the landing lights?

Some shots of the external model

Why is the alpha channel white and not gray values used?

If that is due to the choice of the transparent windows that should only hold for FS9

in FSX that's not a problem anymore ;-)

VC is stunning stuff :-)

Cheers,

André

Once again, don't know if it have been asked before.

Will it feature Cost Index, Flex Temp and other take off data like V1, Vr and V2?

Sorry if it have been asked before.

Cheers!

Define 3d lights please? Do we have the lights modeled in 3d, sure.

You mean landing lights that light up objects (like only one other addon does as far as we know), sure! Most other lights will be effects like in all other addons. Not a lot you can do there.

Nice but have the feeling of going back to FS2002 lol no alpha channel?

Not sure we understand what you mean. You see no glass in the windows? I see them. Of course we use alpha channel.

As always transparencies are highly depending on the GPU and drivers but I see them.

Thanks for your quick answer sir. One last for today, at the current Beta Version, how well does this plane fly an hold?

Edit: Forgot to ask another one. Back to Wilco, when performing an auto-land it touchdown like a brick lol, how smooth is Aerosoft one?

Cheers!

Miguel Santos

a bit, yes, yes, yes, yes and yes.

You give it side stick until you get the bank angle you want. Let go off the stick and it stays in that bank, 100% stable.

When you want to end the turn, side stick to the other side until you get zero bank and let go of the stick, 100% stable.

We do not have the FMGS fly holdings, HUGELY complex stuff as you got to handle and entrees etc. Perhaps in the more advanced version.

The window reflections look great and not too imposing (like the defaults) One thing I'm interested to know is how this Bus taxi's? Most Jet aircraft I find hard to keep rolling without moving the thrust every minute, I may be wrong and this is documented in FSX itself, but a little thrust and then back to idle should keep things rolling, does this Bus taxi well?
