  1. I've been lurking this thread since day 1. I just wanted to say, I started on Flight Sim 95. I've grown up to get my pilot's license, an atc job, and finally the funds to build a kickass computer, and this will be my first payware airplane. Not exactly a riveting story, but I'm just excited and wanted to let you guys know. Very much looking forward to this.

  2. But keep in mind, we do not model that one. Btw not much news to tell you or to show you. The only modeling still to do is the icing (but that is a serious bit of work) so apart from Stefan the other modelers are all moved to the A330 project. The Twin Otter 300 flight model is 'complete' but the 100 still needs some tweaking. Hans is working hard on the systems, gauges, sounds and checklist (we use the build-in for this project). So all in all things are moving along nicely, fully on schedule.

  3. For those who have asked about glass cockpit, DHC-400 versions; the 400 uses the Honeywell Glass cockpit. There is not a lot of training support out there for this glass cockpit and as a 400 pilot IRL it is a little quirky compared with G1000 etc. It would not be be commercially viable for Aerosoft to code for a system that could only otherwise be used in the PC12NG (IIRC that is the only other platform in the world that uses the same Honeywell system) I fly both the 300 and 400 series. There are small system variations (e.g. the beta backup system in the 300), but both can be fitted with the PT6-27. The 400s I fly have the hot and high -34s (an option) but all very similar. Somebody mentioned Re co-pilots earlier that they would prefer to fly without but they would have their licence suspended? FYI the 300 is JUST over the weight that requires a co-pilot - which is why Viking worked so hard to save weight (composite doors mostly) to get it just under. Now you can legally fly the 400 single pilot 👍🏻 I have likewise been an avid flight simmer since the early 1980s, almost 30 years flying and instructing in the Military/PMC and STILL simming on the side. If I can help anyone with the Twin Otter (chariot of choice for the past 7 years) do let me know. Happy to help and will sort some vids when this Twotter launches!! excellent work. Cheers Aerosoft. Good luck

  4. That's correct. But as steering this way is not very easy, the Twotter Extended for FSX and P3D got a virtual water rudder controlled by pedals/stick. And so it will be in MSFS, especially to make steering possible for users with only 1 throttle axis.

  6. Two very valid questions! We should have you as a betatester! The door opens and closes at regular intervals. Unfortunately there's no option so far to trigger the opening/closing animation with something meaningful in MSFS (like a frequency for example). Best is if you wait till it's opening, after that you will have enough time to taxi inside before it's closing again. Yes, those are invisible placeholder airports that were required to place some ground imagery around the west, northwest and north corners of the scenery. This imagery is responsible for smoothing the transition between default MSFS and the addon scenery (which has a rather unnatural dark blue we didn't want to have at Rothera). Such imagery can only be bound to an airport and only have a maximum distance from the airport center. However the scenery boundary is too far away from the airport so I needed to create those 3 placeholder airports that are otherwise not visible. Still hoping that MSFS comes up with proper support for additional ground imagery (=more than one CGL file per addon) soon that allows to place those without airports. Hope that explains it a little.

  7. Aerosoft - Antarctica Vol. 1 - British Rothera and Beyond | MSFS DLC Developer: LimeSim Purchase here: Aerosoft Shop Rothera is without a doubt the station in Antarctica with the most picturesque location! Located on a rocky outcrop overlooked by a massive glacier dotted with mountains to the west - it is surrounded by sea to all other directions with a line of the truly majestic mountains of the Antarctic Peninsula visible to the east on clear days. The runway is squeezed between base and hangar buildings to the left and right and sea water at both ends. In essence it’s a smaller version of Gibraltar, which is British, too. A stunning approach, a runway that’s crossed by a road with traffic lights and surrounded by water. To complete this add-on, we have added the very remote bases of Fossil Bluff and Sky Blu even further south. Together they make a perfect playground for the Aerosoft Aircraft Twin Otter! (Coming soon!) A showcase scenery created by developers with more than 20 years of experience in MSFS development! Features: Lots of animation including animals, vehicle, boats and people, including likely the first animated penguins and chain vehicles in flight simulator Custom created sounds of animals and vehicles (probably the first scenery in MSFS with sounds attached) Coverage beyond the base with stunning glacier cliffs dropping into the sea Hundreds of thousands of animated icebergs in a larger area around the base (at times it can be possible that the approach is blocked by a huge iceberg passing through) Offsite locations of automated monitoring stations (marked as POIs so you can fly there for regular checks performing rough landings out in the field) Offsite landing strips of two British field locations with custom models and improved terrain imagery/elevation data: Sky Blu and Fossil Bluff Emergency airstrip location on the glacier above Rothera (alternative landing strip that MUST be used by local aircraft if there are incoming overseas aircraft) Carefully crafted landscape to merge with surround landscape - including updated waterbodies Special technique used to add wind shear details to the vast white lands on the glacier Manual with dozens of pages of inside knowledge on flying in Antarctica, plus flight plans and simple charts System requirements: Microsoft Flight Simulator (Version 2020) OS: Windows 10 version 18362.0 or higher Processor: Intel i5-8400 | AMD Ryzen 5 1500X Video Memory: 4 GB Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 970 | AMD Radeon RX 590 Memory: 16 GB Installation runs via Aerosoft One, this requires an internet connection and an Aerosoft user account! More information about Aerosoft One can be found in the User Guide or in the FAQs.

  8. Yes and other developers are in constant grief when the miss a communicated deadline regardless of where the fault lies. Frankly we are not paying near enough money to make these types of demands or have these types of expectations.

  9. I keep watching the departure monitors hoping to see a 'NOW BOARDING' for the Twin Otter. It has been a long wait but I am sure that it will be worth it. Rome was not built in a day, and a good wine takes time, so I am remaining in my seat until called for boarding. Then the credit card will be out in a flash..... Jerry

  10. I switched my XML to ASOBO_GT_Knob_Infinite_Push as well (I don't think this template existed when I created the CRJ animation code). It will be available with the next update which will coincide with the release of the CRJ-900 & 1000. I can't give you a specific date yet though.

  16. Well I am the product manager and one of the 'inventors' of OnAir. So let me defend that product here. OnAir does is unable to cause this issue. It just listens to what is send on the simConnect channel. It does not write, it does not influence the sim and is simply unable to cause this issue unless simconnect is corrupt. And I just checked, over 95000 hours where flown with the CRJ in MSFS using OnAir this month (OnAir is a real sleeper, it is wildly successful project not many people talk about). So let me say we are pretty sure there is no fundamental issue there.

  17. one more note: i found an important typo in the manual. For the live Rothera webcam you have https://www.bas.ac.uk/data/our-data/images/webcams/rothera-web-cam/ however this is incorrect and is a dead link. The correct link is https://www.bas.ac.uk/data/our-data/images/webcams/rothera-webcam/ (no hyphen in the word webcam)

  18. These updates are far from simple, but if you look at other projects, like the Airbusses you see a very different side. We have done over 100 updates for that project (and that is only the 64 bit P3D version!) and one is currently being tested. The MSFS CRJ has received 9 updates and indeed need one at this moment.

  20. How to import and load an addon profile for Honeycomb This tutorial shows the basic steps to load an addon from the Aerosoft downloads server and import it into the simulator. Here is the link to the available Honeycom profiles. https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/files/category/126-honeycomb-profiles/ The procedure is 99.99% the same for all the simulators. --->We will use the PMDG 737 NGX and Prepar3D for this tutorial. STEP 1 : Download the PMDG 737 NGX profile : https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/files/file/5993-pmdg-ngxu/&_fromLogin=1 STEP 2: Load it into the configurator : * Select "Actions" * Select "Settings" * Select "Import Profiles" * Click "Select Files" and choose the downloaded profile from the location it was saved to. * Check "PMDG_NGX(u)_Throttle * Click the button below "Import Profiles" STEP 3 : Activate PMDG (Only for PMDG profiles of course) STEP 4 : Disable simulator default bindings. ---> This is very important to avoid multiple assignments in the simulator and in the configurator ! NOTE : Disabling the default bindings DOES NOT affect the axes ! STEP 5 : Select the PMDG profile : STEP 6 : Activate it : STEP 7: Start P3d and load the PMDG 737 NGX : STEP 8 : Make sure you get the profile loading confirmation. This may not be immediate, especially with the PMDG as the systems loading akes some times. You are all set !

  23. Glad you found the fix so soon! Here's a snipped from the manual's FAQs where we cover this problem: In fact MSFS seems to have a bug which doesn't allow manual temperature changes outside of "live weather", making it a bit hard to figure out from which temperature downwards exactly the sea shows frozen. As soon as we figured that out (after that bug in MSFS hopefully fixed) we are planning to insert a trigger that will make the "sea traffic" (boat, ship, whales...) disappear when the sea is frozen.

  27. Just be patience, as this is the only thing we can do right now And keep in mind, that the FlightSimExpo 2021 is this weekend. Even if Aerosoft is not attending in person and is not listed as an exhibitor, they are still listed as a sponsor. This could mean, that we could expect something like a small trailer or advertisment. Many developers will use this occasion to showcase their (opcoming) products to promote them.

  29. Natürlich begrüße ich alle Bemühungen einen Fix zu finden, und auch kann ich die Problematik mit den vielen ASOBO Updates nachvollziehen. Wenn ich jetzt aber in der heutigen 30 Jahre Aerosoft Rabattaktion auch die Ostfriesischen Inseln sehe, wundere ich mich schon. Hat bei Aerosoft keiner Angst, dass sowas auf Kosten der Reputation geht? Wenn ich eine solche Scenery als vermeidliches Angebot kaufe und ich dann nur CTDs bekomme, ... Ich selbst wollte erst die eine oder andere Scenery erstehen, aber habe jetzt doch davon Abstand genommen.

  32. This is related to MSFS not the CRJ or any peripherals. On the last nVidia driver update the issue was somewhat gone, but now it is back. It happens with all aircraft. There are threads on MSFS official forums. This is Asobo's/GPU driver's issue. I just had a flight with this issue since before takeoff.

  35. There might be a conflict with "Antarctica Airport Pack" freeware by user "kychungdotcom" (https://de.flightsim.to/file/2862/wilkins-runway-antarctica-ywks) - he already removed Rothera (EGAR) from his package but Fossil Bluff Skiway (AT10) and Sky Blu (AT24) are still included. Maybe he will update his package to make it compatible with Aerosoft Rothera Station if you ask.

  36. Hi Bernd, thanks for letting us know. We adjusted the product now to show the utility. Sadly, this can't be fixed for already installed products. You either have to reinstall the product or wait for the next update.

  37. As has been mentioned a few times, at this moment we are still discussing a fix with Microsoft as the developers are simply not able to solve this fully from their end at this moment. If you find it unacceptable to wait for that, contact us on support@aerosoft.com and we'll try to find a solution.

  39. Grüezi! This doesn't look like a CRJ problem to me. When you have a completely empty community folder, do you have the same problem with the default planes? Did you try different airports and different regions of the world? You may try to delete the caches: https://flightsimulator.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360019202439-All-versions-How-to-delete-the-Rolling-Cache-and-the-Manual-Cache It may also help to completely delete the entire settings folder (xxx\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\). Since you checked Zendesk already, did you follow the following checklists? https://flightsimulator.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/4406039624338-All-versions-Loading-issues-Checklist https://flightsimulator.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360015893879-All-versions-Crashing-CTDs-issues-Checklist There are also additional troubleshoot guides that my help: https://flightsimulator.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/4406280399250-All-versions-Crashing-CTDs-issues-Basic-Troubleshooting https://flightsimulator.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/4406280653202-All-versions-Crashing-CTDs-issues-Advanced-Troubleshooting

  41. Making a separate topic about this as it is a development we (okay Stefan) worked on very hard the last two weeks and are damned proud of the results. The Twin Otter will launch with these effects and the CRJ will be updated with them. Do see these images at full res by clicking on them. Click two times. Believe me, this took many many hours experimenting and talking to pilots to make sure this is as they recognize it.

  43. Aerosoft...will there be a Pause at TOD functionality for any of the models? If so, ensure you don't use this MSFS "active pause" which only pause the plane while time continues, day/night light etc shifts. There is a real pause in the developers menu. (Why they put it there I can't tell) Most probably you guys are aware of this, but anyway... Mats

  45. Hallo, hier möchte ich einmal anhand zweier Beispiele die LED Konfiguration mit dem Honeycomb Configurator (ab v2) kurz für X-Plane 11 beschreiben. Mit dem mitgelieferten Default_Throttle Profile sind die LED's zwar schon vorkonfiguriert, aber es kann sicher nicht schaden, wenn man weiß wie es geht... Konfiguration der LED's für das Fahrwerk (Landing Gear). Hier gibt es 3 LED's für ein 3 Punkt Fahrwerk mit Bugrad. Die LED's Haben die Buchstaben Bezeichnung am Throttle L, N, R. Diese LED's können rot oder grün leuchten. Rot = Fahrwerk ist in Bewegung (fährt gerade ein oder aus). Grün = Fahrwerk ist ausgefahren keine LED leuchtet = Fahrwerk ist eingefahren. Im Configurator sind die Bezeichnungen für die LED's: LDG-L_GREEN LDG-L_RED LDG-N_GREEN LDG-N_RED LDG-R_GREEN LDG-R_RED Wir benötigen im Configurator ein X-Plane 11 Dataref um die LED'S zu steuern. Die findet man über die Configurator Funktion Actions - Open XPlane Variable List - Dataref (Webseite). Die Dataref Variable heißt in diesem Fall: sim/flightmodel2/gear/deploy_ratio Diese Variable kann Werte zwischen 0 und 1 annehmen, die wir nun abfragen müssen. 0 bedeutet: Fahrwerk ist eingefahren, 1 bedeutet: Fahrwerk ist ausgefahren. Werte zwischen 0 und 1 bedeuten: Fahrwerk ist in Bewegung. Fangen wir mit LDG-L_Green and: Hier wie im Bild nun nach den Ziffern an den Pfeilen vorgehen. 1. LED Mode einschalten. 2. LDG-L_GREEN auswählen (Select LED:) 3. Condition (Abfrage) erstellen (+ Zeichen). Hier das genannte Dataref sim/flightmodel2/gear/deploy_ratio eingeben. 4. Index eingeben. 0 = LED L ; 1 = LED N; 2 = LED R. 5. Value eingeben. 1 = Fahrwerk ist ausgefahren (da wir ja die Grüne LED konfigurieren). 6. Speichern. Das Gleiche machen wir für alle 3 grünen LED's mit dem passenden Index 0, 1 und 2. Weiter geht es mit den roten LED's für das Fahrwerk. Wieder nach den Ziffern vorgehen. Hier brauchen wir aber nun 2 Conditions (Abfragen) für den "Value", die wir mit AND (und) im Condition-Link (3.) verknüpfen müssen. Value (Wert) ist kleiner als 1 und Wert ist größer als 0, denn nur dann ist das Fahrwerk in Bewegung und die LED's müssen rot leuchten. Also für Condition 1 bei Value den Wert <1 eingeben (Bild oben) und bei Condition 2 den Wert >0 eingeben (Bild unten): Auch hier muss das Ganze für alle 3 LED's (L, N und R; Index 0, 1 und 2) durchgeführt werden. Als 2. Beispiel wollen wir einmal den Öldruck abfragen und auf dem Annunciator Panel anzeigen. Die LED heißt ANC-OIL. Die Dataref heißt: sim/cockpit2/annunciators/oilpressure_low Da wir hier nur eine Anzeige für alle möglicherweise vorhandenen Motoren haben, benötigen wir nun 4 Conditiones (für 4 Motoren) und den Condition-Link "OR" (Oder Funktion). Mit der "Oder" Funktion stellen wir sicher, dass die Öldruck Leuchte rot aufleuchtet wenn irgendeiner der 4 Motoren einen zu niedrigen Öldruck hat. Sind nur 2 oder nur ein Motor vorhanden, klappt das auch wenn man 4 Conditions programmiert. Mit dem + zeichen (neben Conditions) erstellen wir nacheinander 4 Conditions für dann max 4 Motoren. Der Index Wert muss dann von 0 bis 3 laufen ( 0 = Motor 1 .... 3 = Motor 4). Im Value Feld muss dann immer eine 1 eingetragen werden (=1) , was bedeutet, dass die Abfrage (Condition) "Öldruck niedrig" wahr ist. Siehe nun unteres Bild für den Motor 1: Das machen wir für alle 4 Motoren (Condition 1 bis 4 mit dem Index 0 bis 3). Noch ein Hinweis: Falls man einmal auf der Internetseite für die Datarefs und Commands eine Bezeichnung nicht findet: Alle immer aktuellen Datarefs und Commands findet ihr auch im X-Plane 11 Verzeichnis "Resources/plugins/". Die Textdateien heißen Commands.txt und DataRefs.txt Addon Flugzeuge können allerdings auch eigene Commands und Datarefs besitzen. Das muss dann z.B. irgendwo im installierten Addon Flugzeug Ordner zu finden sein. Wenn nicht, dann sollte man beim Hersteller nachfragen..... So, ich hoffe, das hilft vorerst weiter. Fragen bitte gerne hier im Subforum mit einem neuen Topic stellen (neuen Beitrag erstellen / Create new Topic). Gruß Heinz

  46. This is going to get fixed soon, in the meanwhile try the manual download: http://sam-suite.com/SAM_Seasons_1.0.4.7zip After Downloading copy the folder "SAM_Seasons" from the zip file into your "X-Plane 11/resources/plugins/SAM/lib" folder and you should be fine. The zip file needs free 7zip for unpacking.
