  1. I can confirm. It used to be fine, but now it does its best Harrison Ford impression
  2. Please make sure installation options are supported, for instance for those airports that have an option to toggle static aircraft
  3. Thanks for clarifying. I have a few reservations about the new airports, so it's good to know who I should blame haha 😂
  4. I watched the livestream, which is why I'm asking, considering that Mathijs appears to imply something different, unless, I guess, he missed "Aerosoft" in Nicolas' post.
  5. One important thing to do is, whenever you have to go into the menu, go into the drone camera first. This will deactivate your ability to control the plane, and bypass the glitch. Once you're out of the esc menu, you can go back to the cockpit camera.
  6. Try cycling your airbrake. The CRJ should have no issue climbing on climb thrust setting up to its 41,000 feet ceiling unless influenced by external factors (wind for instance) or badly configured. Most of the time I saw someone mentioning issues climbing is due to a a bug in the simulator with the Thrustmaster TCA sidestick, which pulls the airbrake (without a visible movement of the lever) and/or flaps whenever you go in the menu. Not sure if the issue exists with other controllers as well.
  7. Whether it's ok or not is a different issue. It's not ok if they don't get fixed. But since now you're begrudgingly revealed your experience in this specific field, let me tell you. This is *nothing* in PC flight simulators, even more so in their infancy. The fact that this add-on actually follows the LNAV route quite well is already a remarkable feat. VNAV is usually a lot more problematic. This is not to say that problems don't exist and that they should not be fixed, but if you intend to keep flying this kind of aircraft (or even more complex), and to keep purchasing them before they had a few months of the market to get put through their paces by a lot of people in a much wider variety of situations than what can be tested in-house, get used to this, because it isn't going to change. Having issues on the ILS is very common as it's the part of VNAV that requires the most finesse, so it exacerbates the problems further. This is already (and surprisingly) above industry standards in terms of initial quality and polish. It may not be ideal, but it's the reality of things.
  8. You've now dodged the question six times. Shall we go for 7? 😂
  9. Still not answering the question. Is it so hard to simply admit that you're a relative newbie with PC flight simulators and you're actually unaware that airliner add-ons *always* launch with comparable issues (actually, it's usually much worse) that normally get solved over time simply as a byproduct of their complexity as a software?
  10. You have not answered my question. Care to quantify your PC flight simulator experience with add-ons of similar complexity 2-3 weeks after their release? Perhaps bring a few examples? Both have been out several months since their initial (very basic) release, and they've been iterated a ton since. If you started using them recently, they're nothing like they were when they first were made available. Properly following ILS glideslopes was the least of their problems then. Their developers have done an amazing job over a fairly long time, but let's not lose perspective. This has been out 3 weeks.
  11. You haven't answered my question. Since you're happy to wave around your real-world resume, I'm sure your PC flight simulation experience isn't excessively personal information, is it? Incidentally, the first complex add-on for a new simulator doesn't make issues less likely to appear. Quite the opposite, as a matter of fact. For what it is, the CRJ has amazingly few issues.
  12. How many of these $50 (or more) add-ons of complex airliners have you flown before two weeks from their release?
  13. I haven't said it it's always the correct answer. What I said is that it's the answer that would be warranted if support people weren't trying to be kind.
  14. Feel free. The airport is that way. One thing is for sure. If you think "being able to fly an ILS properly" is something so "basic" in an aircraft add-on of this complexity in its infancy in any flight simulator, you may have all the (alleged) real flying experience you want, but you certainly lack it in commercial flight simulators. So perhaps do indeed keep to your lane, and don't think your (alleged) real flying experience makes you the ultimate authority when you're flying a $50 software and not a $33 million aircraft.
  15. If I had a dollar for any "real pilot" waving an alleged resume around in flight simulator forums over the past 30 years or so, I'd be able to purchase every add-on on the market and likely would have money left for a fancy dinner. I'm fairly positive that type rating courses are a bit more expensive than an aircraft add-on for a flight simulator. Manuals are provided for a reason, and this one has more exhaustive manuals than most.
  16. Good for you mr. alleged "real CRJ pilot". For now, this virtual CRJ pilot is enjoying flying this virtual CRJ a lot, and it's doing exactly what I'm telling it to do. Incidentally, if this kind of issue a couple of weeks from release of a complex airliner add-on is so big for you that you think it should clutter the sales page, then this may be your first rodeo on a flight simulator. If you plan on continuing to fly virtually on anything more complex than a Cessna, I suggest you get used to it, or don't buy any complex airliner add-on before at least 6 months from their release, because I haven't seen a single release of this complexity since the time of FS2004 (just because previous sims weren't as complex) that didn't come with problems aplenty to be solved with time. In comparison to most, this works remarkably well. Perhaps when you'll pay $33 million for an aircraft, it'll work flawlessly from the get go. Or perhaps not. Then the issue is on their side, isn't it?
  17. Good. This isn't the software company you work for. If the company I work for received so many complaints to which the proper response is "RTFM," I'd give my people a medal for managing to retain their sanity.
  18. I mean that the tone of some of the posts here are not exactly nice and friendly (or respectful), and they're receiving a similar response. I can't certainly blame Mathijs for being extremely fed up.
  19. You normally receive what you give. ILS approach category is not an indication of what configuration changes you can make on final approach.
  20. I'm quite curious to hear from what level of expertise you are claiming that, considering that most CRJs have nearly no vertical navigation capabilities for a reason.
  21. In an A320 maybe not, in an aircraft less stable like the CRJ (or any similarly configured aircraft like the CJ4 for instance) it is. The last two stages of flaps increase your lift considerably, and the vertical navigation suite of the autopilot isn't advanced enough to cope. But hey, I have provided you with a solution, or at least a very viable workaround until more changes are done (if warranted). Feel free to ignore it and keep complaining. I'm sure it'll make you land better. 😂
  22. Yes, in a step-down approach you can configure a bit later, but you should do any configuration change during the level flight parts of it. Autopilot will try to correct, but it isn't designed to perform miracles.
