  1. Have not touched the Otter since end of april. Came back here hoping the sounds have been fixed but it has not. Damn lucky i had the Fenix 320 to keep me occupied and am currently waiting for the PMDG 737-800.
  2. I got that kind of reading when flying with CCM's mod which is close to stalling climb. Try removing it and testing. Average climb around 50kg below MTOW would be 1000fpm speed 105-110kts ias. Prop 75% TRQ 45% fuel flow 300/h with T5 temperature near still in the green but near the yellow band.
  3. Did a bit of investigating. I concluded that it is CCM's mod causing issue. Removed it and i got back all the correct cruise and climb performance nearly 20knots ias gain on cruising lol. It seems the mod has not been updated with updated prop drag physics. Anyone with the CCM mod or script should try to fly the plane without the mod and see if there is any performance issue. Sorry for the unnecessary thread. Mods can close it as if is mostly solved.
  4. Started with v1.0.4 seems to be still a thing in v1.0.5. The standard normal 300 Series should not have issue maintaining a 1000fpm climb with 76% prop rpm, 45 trq and maintaining 105kts ias from initial climb all the way up to cruise level 8000feet with t5 temperature within the green. Currently forcing to keep prop at 90% just to get the correct climb and speed. If i were to keep lower prop settings to 75% as per manual i am climbing at white band under 90kts and struggling to maintain 1000fpm unless i want climb close to 70knots which should not happen. Cruise is also another issue plane is flying 10 knot slower than it should unless i prop out 90% or max prop rpm unnecessary burning more fuel.
  5. Back here locals would use stem files of unreleased music(Itself being shared by the record studio community quietly) to create an edit/mashup/slight variation of the track. They would then occasionally play it around the clubs with paying patrons and no one bats an eye except for some salty music execs who threaten legal letters as usual(+Never had these corporate folks ever wanted to release any unreleased work even if the artists wants to and begs lol). I recalled one big artist getting hounded by his own record company for sharing his own not yet released music as stems to friends and relatives as private consumption without any public listening lol. Modding itself should not be an issue if no $ is in play. The large bulk of original codes itself came from asobo which other paywares have been using. Even worse now one has to run some scripts and file creator instead of copy pasting actual folders lol. https://flightsim.to/file/29333/ccms-twin-otter-mods-qqcrx
  6. The otter should roll on its own on the tarmac without any added thrust this seems correct. What i see is the problem now is the cruise setting. 45 psi torque and 76% prop should get you at 145knots ias at 8000feet now and fuel burn within 310/h with marginal winds of 10knot. This is flying in the humid tropics around the equator and it rarely ever puts the engine into entering hot orange temperature band. Overall cruising seems slower now by 10knot average and if want to get back my old speed i end up heating it up or burning up more fuel than what was describe with the manual i had.
  7. When is the next update? is it going to fix the otter being so obese heavy? Cant incorporate a few lines of flight model CFG amendment and upload it on a weekly basis as a temporary measure? v1.0.4 was a 3 week wait do we have to wait 3 weeks for a very small visual fix? There's gonna be more mods being shared out around the flight sim community around the net in that case. At least you guys can try to come up with a statement with a lit on what is being worked on and what is not so that most of us would understand.
  8. Since CCM's mod has been taken out for copyright reasons. Those wanting the stance just head to aerosoft-aircraft-twin-otter\SimObjects\Airplanes Open FLIGHT_MODEL.cfg and modify the entry from ;gear as of below ;Gear 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 point.0 = 1, 13.00, 0.00, -6.65, 1500, 0, 1.12, 60, 0.78, 1.80, 0.60, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 3 ; Wheel front point.1 = 1, -2.25, -5.95, -6.63, 3000, 1, 1.28, 0, 0.7, 2.30, 0.60, 0, 0, 2, 0, 0, 1 ; Wheel rear left point.2 = 1, -2.25, 5.95, -6.63, 3000, 2, 1.28, 0, 0.7, 2.30, 0.60, 0, 0, 3, 0, 0, 1 ; Wheel rear right Same entry can be used for all DHC-6 variants except Amphibian, Float and tundra those are different. How it should look with 1.3 tonne payload
  9. Was wondering where the hell the file went to luckily i have it backed up. Am happy i have the files myself and i would share it continuously until you folks actually come out with some changes especially with the sound and ground stance(Too tail heavy low on mtow and empty) which i have already pointed out in a separate forum. It has been 5 weeks since release and some of the minor visual fixes(Especially for the ground stance) just required some cfg text adjustment and can be tweaked weekly. This is the reason why most of us have been using CCM's mod if the fixes were quickly rolled out nobody would even bother to mod. Reminded me of two Asian based airline sending legal letters to any Diecast plane maker for issuing unauthorised plane models and even going after some low level seller for selling cheapskate lanyard with their logo. Yes it is a copyright issue but there's no need to be such a whiny corporate loser. Collectors have been asking for full set of diecast models fleet for decades and all these airline never bothered to provide over the years.
  10. Aerosoft you guys need to check back the stance look on the standard 300 pax, 3 blade cargo, 4 blade cargo, skydiver variants. I've just went to my local airport and seen some a viking otters just 53kg short of max take off weight and the aircraft still has a tail high nose low look. The default stance you guys put makes the otter looks like its gonna squat butt low when i load it near max take off weight. Not to be applied towards the tundra as that plane does have tail low stance.
  11. I am interested in this. Mind sharing which file do i need to modify for this?
  12. There's no IAS mode in aerosoft's otter as with the real life otter. You either climb with pitch trim and correct power setting or you use Vertical speed climb.
  13. Have you tried other airports? Also is the aircraft flaps 20 or less not flaps 37(Autopilot GS not supported have to be handflown in real life if you are to use it). Another to make sure gross weight for landing is not more than 5580kg. Usually its setting up the correct ILS frequency on the garmin, Then before loc capture to switch it from GPS to VLOC mode, Then when correctly aligned press the approach button the aircraft will catch the glideslope later and pitch down. Keep speed at 150-160kts ias down to 5miles then slow down to 105knots and pull flaps 10 down, Before 1000feet engage flaps 20 and push the prop lever to 100%, keep the approach speed at 85knots, disengage yaw damper and maybe you may want to adjust the rudder trim for less prop yawing to the side behavior on touchdown.
  14. Had the same issue when i bought indiafoxtecho's T-45c on marketplace. Updates are slow almost 1 week behind others. Cant locate it's files on the community folder as with most marketplace add-ons. I would only recommend marketplace for add-on sceneries and very bear basic planes. Anything advance that will and definitely have bugs that require frequent updates, are best to be bought at other online stores. Damn lucky to have bought the twin otter on aerosofts own website instead.
  15. Believe the marketplace version has not been updated yet. It has always been v1.0.1.
  16. I took this picture a while back onboard a viking 400 which is essentially the twin otter variant that has glass cockpit. Also below is what a 1000fpm climb should look like with the speed within 105-110kts ias. Payload of 4 passengers 2 pilots and 80kg of aft cargo with fuel of 1430lbs. This is cruise level Pitch looks like with a speed of 148-150kts. It is well nose below the horizon slightly should be even more pronounce if its 155kts. Note no flight director or altitude selector as the aircraft was not fitted with any autopilot and is handflown throughout.

    Random CTDs

    No CTD so far. Still not sure what was the cause. Though i am suspecting something is wrong with the default livery Solomon Airline. I have pretty much filled up my community folder with all the add-ons back and no ctd flying other repaints.. The only thing i have not revert is i am still keeping HAGS turned off. Am not seeing any performance changes(HAGS should only be turned on if you're using an entry level to mid GPU) so i am keeping it turned off. Maybe this is the unlikely fix for it.

    Random CTDs

    Strange for today had 4 flights with no CTDs. Only difference is i was not using the default 300 series passenger Solomon Airline livery but another livery i downloaded from flightsim.to for the standard 300 series passenger variant again. Have yet to try the other otter variants with their respective repaints to see if this was the case. Also noted a weird behavior with frame rates. If i were to finish a sector and shutdown engines and leaving the cockpit cold and dark for 15 minutes and starting things back for the next sector my average Fps of 60 that was on my first leg would drop to an average 42fps. There were a lot of times it would dip to 28fps when there was some LOD loading and some stuttering. Checking task manager the CPU, GPU, Memory and disk usage were barely elevated. Temperature around 65c. Tested another flight where after landing i would prop both engines down but only fully shutting down the left engine and open the passenger doors and let this play for 15 minutes. Start the left engine etc and took off the second leg with this turnaround tactic gave me a good 60fps with no stuttering and no visible issue with LOD loading. Still very inconclusive at the moment.
  19. I know Aerosoft's v/s behavior is bad and there is need to fix it, but i hope its not an over fix that is so stable where we don't need to make manual adjustment everytime on climb and descent. The old 300 series here pilots rarely use the v/s to climb or descent cause it is very unreliable and slow. Typically V/s speed is used until 1000feet before the selected altitude where pilot would disconnect it and use mostly pitch trim adjustment and memorizing what power torque, and prop settings to use before arming the alt+ap. Some would go for a very shallow v/s climb of 200fpm-400fpm at final climb or descent. For approach it is entirely manual just before localizer capture and following the glideslope indicator and that was it and for stolport operators ILS/Vor DME approaches are simply rare. A flightplan that has a moderate turn on a waypoint requires the crew to disconnect the ap and manually turn the yoke. Over here replacement 400 viking series that came to replace them had the entire autopilot system removed cause they were barely used. There were some pilots complaining about the removal(Them needing to keep an eye out more and have one flying has his hands on the yoke all the time as a nuisance) but the aircraft itself even without autopilot is very stable even in some weather as long the correct trim and power settings is used. Added benefits on the viking was the easier to read glass cockpit. Capability of RNAV GPS approaches, Dedicated weather radar, Added awareness for night flying, There was a joke that one can even book a hotel room using the the center column keyboard on the ground lol. The plus points outweights the negatives of the autopilot removal. So all in all, there needs to be some form of middle ground.

    Random CTDs

    CTD no.7 1st leg 35minute flight uneventful. Decided to exit to msfs main menu some speculate it could help with ctds. 2nd leg spawn at the same bay i landed in. Took off cruise landing without issue. This was a 50minute flight really was very scared of any CTD for such a long flight LOL. Landed without issue at arrival turn in taxing towards the bay. Shut down the engines. Switch from cockpit view to Ctrl+09 to open the passenger stairs and MSFS just jams itself without closing. 5 seconds later got notified Nvidia Share had stop working. But i had somewhat managed to capture some of it. This time MSFS wont budge and had to be terminated via task manager. Microsoft Flight Simulator 2022.01.21 - 13.54.58.05.mp4

    Random CTDs

    CTD no.5 First 25minute leg uneventful. Landed at a stock stolport. Turn off everything like a proper turnaround for 15minutes. Startup everything as usual and took off for next leg. Noticed my fps was dipping to 40 something it was consistently 60fps on the first leg. Task manager parameters RAM is at 48% usage, GPU 52% temperature at 60C, CPU 60%. Went back to the sim and carried on. Approx 5 minutes later. Changing from outside view back into cockpit during climb on MSFS closes itself. Decided to do a full reinstall on Aerosoft One with antivirus turned off. CTD no.6 Spawned at gate started engine no2. While engine is starting up changed to view outside for screenshot then there's this sudden loud broken audio like windows BSOD with the simulator stuck and MSFS promtly closes itself. Additional info: Sim settings is in High Performance only LOD slider was adjusted to 200. Plane is very fps friendly(60fps lock) throughout except for the second leg which caused my 4th CTD. Decided to test FBW A32NX to see if there is a problem. Add it back to the community folder even added some payware scenery. Did a full 1hour leg startup to landing to shutdown all instruments off. No CTD. Took another test reinstalled Indiafoxtecho Goshawk from Asobo marketplace. Flew around for 30minutes no CTD.
  22. Any idea what was the surface wind recorded at the airport? I had two diff sounds both with live weather, one at a international airport beside the sea it had the same loud wind recorded surface wind was only 5 knots. Another i was in jungle stolport all i hear is jungle wildlife without the loud wind noises hen the doors are open but i had forgotten to check the surface wind of that place. Am not sure if surface wind had some relation to the ambient outside sound.

    Random CTDs

    Just did a round flight. First 30minute leg uneventful down to the aircraft being powered off and doors open, battery off everything. Did a second leg return flight without exiting msfs as i would usually do, thought this time everything would be okay. Flight went as usual takeoff cruise and landed. Parked into the bay. I engage the parking brake and wanted changed to outside view to take some screenshot before shutting the engines down and Msfs crashed itself. This is with the Community folder empty and Windows Hardware Accelerated GPU scheduling disabled.

    Random CTDs

    Would try so on my next flight. Also will try to disable Windows Hardware Accelerated GPU scheduling to see any difference. It seems browsing through Asobo's forum, Nvidia 511.23 with Hardware Accelerated GPU Scheduling turned on has been cited to cause potential CTD to RTX 2070 users.

    Random CTDs

    Had 3 CTD's out of 4 short separate flights. 1st CTD Took off without issue after 20minutes of flying, descent landing with full reverses and flap 37, Went to park beside the runway raised the flaps, decided to look outside view to see the flaps being raised and a few seconds MSFS crashed to desktop. 2nd CTD At gate starting up accidentally feathered the left engine during start up(Forgot the correct key bindings) sim was stuck with loud sounds came out very similar to the windows BSOD then MSFS crashed to desktop. 3rd CTD just 30minutes ago Took off without issue climbed hand flying the climb with pitch trim set and IAS at around 105kts aiming for 11500feet. At around 10000feet climbing i Looked outside to see my plane. MSFS crashed to desktop. Only managed to do one complete 30minute flight yesterday without any issues and so on. Not sure if there was anything i did right with this session. I did a lot of view changes going outside and back into the cockpit and it didnt crash. Am not sure if Nvidia's 511.23 is the cause. I used FBW A32NX on it there was no CTDs.
