    • Good morning,   we are quite happy to annouce that, SIMstarter is able to read the situation time from an OFP (either PFPX or simBrief) and starts the sim at your departure Airport at the time minus a configurable set of minutes. In addition the OFP can be opened in a separate window on your simulator PC (where SIMstarter is running).   Example (with PFPX OFP): Open PFPX (or simBrief) make your flight planning, save your OFP and export your Routes. It's important to have a text-file OFP to use this function.     Having an OFP like this flying from LEMD to EDDL. The Standard Departure Time is set to 19:25 local at LEMD. Fine.   First important step is to tell SIMstarter where your OFP (text files are stored). Open Program Settings > First Tab and set the path (see yellow marking) and define how many minutes prior that time you want to start the sim (gree marking):   Open SIMstarter NG and select Date and time = From OFP   Run your profile and you will start the sim at your desired time.   If you use this in parallel with "Load newest flightplan" you need to make sure that both of them are matching. Otherwise SIMstarter whould use a different OFP and Flightplan. So it makes sense to do your flightplanning first, export everything and then start SIMstarter.   Please find more information in manual chapter 4.11 (after getting v2.0.7).   Update will be out soon.
    • Same problem, only in cold and dark mode. If  turn the OVHD INTEG LT knob a bit, the problem disappears. Not critical. 
    • Nicht ganz, es ist ne Abkürzung, jedenfalls nennen mich meine Freunde so 😉
    • I am experiencing the same issue.  Only in the darkest of night can you actually see the landing/taxi/wing/turnoff lights illuminating the aircraft or the ground... even then the beacon is barely visible.  During the dawn/day/dusk, almost none of the lights are visible at all.   Edit:  It almost seems like the beacon effect is inside the airframe, rather than in the lens.  Not sure if that has any relevance or not... also, there aren't any changes in the lighting settings that affect this issue.
    • Hello,   I'd just like to check in on the status of whether this feature will be implemented in the next update. I am currently on 1.0.1.0 and don't notice any difference between the airplane's behavior in the previous versions and this one - as of now I do not feel any difference whatsoever between normal law and flare mode - which makes touching down in the A330 a bit of a task since we're inclined to put in back pressure on the stick at about 30-40 feet but the airplane tends to float down the runway if back pressure is put in. In my past couple of landings the airplane has just about touched down right at the end of the TDZ despite very little back pressure. There is a skybrary article which describes proper flare mode logic from the A330's perspective, which mentions that flare mode in the A330 is similar, but not identical to that of the 320 - whereas in the 320 the airplane takes a snapshot of its current attitude at 50 feet RA and starts pushing the nose down to -2.5 degrees at 30 feet RA, this article states that the 330 goes into flare mode at 100 feet RA and starts the downward movement at 50 feet RA, although no particular attitude target (i.e. 2.5 degrees in the case of the 320) is specified. I am linking it here:   https://www.skybrary.aero/index.php/Flight_Control_Laws#Airbus_Flight_Control_Systems   Of course, I am not a real world pilot on the A330 and I'm only going off of publicly available information. Can AS confirm whether this is being worked on and/or will be implemented in the next update cycle?   Thank you, keep up the good work!
