is there any image of the A330 inside the P3D v4 like posted on CRJ topic?

 

Not yet but I'll make one soon.

Is there going to be a way to turn in every frequency?
In the current Bus you can only put in frequency's with xxx.250 xxx.500 xxx.750 and xxx.000

In e.g FSL you can turn in  fine frequencys and don't have to open IVAP to get a frequency, that you can't turn in.

 

In all honesty, as long as there is no way to make full use of the 8.33kHz spacing ATC wise, it is really more of a pain in the a** to dial through those hundrets of frequencies to find the one you need.
Should there ever be a way to fully use 8.33kHz ATC wise (VATSIM for example does not support this system yet, neither does any ATC addon) it will of course be considered.


As of right now there is just no sense to simulate this.

Okay that's understandable. But just a technical question, just that I know. Would it be theoretically possible to make an option in the configurator to enable and disable that or would that be impossible from the coding and stuff.

Just a question, not meaning to implent that.^_^

Time for a small update: Was again a shorter week here in germany due a celebration day, but the Bulkcargo Compartment is now also done. Next days will be used on a new platform, but back pretty soon....

Don't expect an update next week, we'll be working on P3d V4 mostly next week.

Take your time

(But don´t take as much as for the CRJ;))

Looking forward to see more about the A330 in two weeks:)

Can I ask why aerosoft is putting so much work into a crj that's no where near as popular as a detailed a380 which they most likely won't make?

Not answering for Aerosoft here, but from past postings, these are likely answers:

  • Aerosoft does substantial market research before starting a project. They've also been in the business for years, and know what sells and what the demand is. Far better than any of us simmers.
  • "Popularity" is different to different people. There are a lot more CRJs flying (more than 700 700/900s for dozens of carriers) than A380s (about 210, used by 4 main carriers). And far more liveries that attract their own interest in a product.
  • Short haul aircraft tend to be more popular (that is, people buying them, not just people wishing for them), perhaps because more people have been on the type.
  • Writing good code for a 4 engine aircraft isn't the same thing as a 2 engine aircraft. It's far more than doubling the number of thrust levers in the cockpit. All this applies as well to the occasional requests for an A340.
  • Virtually any gate at an add-on can be used by an RJ. Not so with the A380.

Finally, not a great question to ask about the CRJ in a forum about the A330. If you don't like the CRJ or the A330, just don't buy them. It makes you look like a troll.

good and solid news...unfortunately few operators use Trent engines in europe :(

Indeed.but the 330-300 RR at least there's Etihad, and Saudia in the Middle East, but for the 330-200 pretty sad to see that Emirates Retired them

Amazing, Stefan! 

How many more rabbits do you have in that hat?? :o

If you show me serious market research that confirms that we will sell a lot of A380 then CRJ.... In OUR market research that did not show. Besides, a full blown A380 is not possible at this moment because a lot of information needed is simply not available. Even for the A340, A350 this is a major issue.

I hate going off-topic a bit further, but your comment sure is interesting. So this narrows the announced A3XX project down to the A320NEO, if the A380, A350 or the A340 (which you excluded before anyway) are that hard to do at the current point in time. Unless you plan to do the A310 or A400M, of course. ;) Just my impression.

A lot A340s are standing around:D

 

And of course I´ll also cross my fingers for you.

Back to topic?

You make it, I'll buy it. I don't care what anyone else thinks.

I can only provide you with a tiny market research: I would buy an Aerosoft A380 right away, even if I knew that not everything is perfect. I would assume that the systems in an A380 are not too far off those in other Airbuses as far as the work of the crew is concerned. If we would get a half-decent A380 with the right weights and reasonable (if not perfect) flight dynamics, it would still be waaay better than what is available right now. I wouldn't buy such a plane for $120, but certainly at a typical Aerosoft price range.

I don't have a problem with the a330. ( In fact a few hours ago I just got off of one). I was just wondering why no developer has done that aircraft. In my opinion it would make more sense for aerosoft to make an a380 as they have done the a320 family and are doing an a330

Yes and no. in each aircraft the crew does sort of the same. We're still operating in the same physics, so we're sort of using the smae methods to trick mother nature.

The details are where things start to matter though.


Do you have 6 fuel pumps or 20?
What about Taxicam, EFBs, the all new radio equipment, datalink, the new FMGS (not just in terms of the layout to the pilot), ECAM, etc.?

Do not think that just because "we onyl simulate the job of the pilot" there would be no systems code behind it.

If you go some pages back and read on the discussion of the fuel tempratures you see what kind of detail goes into the systems. It's not all just faked numbers, lol

 

As far as the A330 is concerned it turned out that even this "small" change in the aircrat type still comes along with a massive amount of work.

That's not entirely true, there are some A330s on the market, but you see the same "problem" with all of them: None is a 100% detailed systems simulation. In fact I believe none is even as detailed as our A320 series is.
Reasons for this, among others, are that long haul aircraft generally do not sell as good as short haul aircraft. Many simmers do not have the time to fly long haul and thus prefer short haul aircraft.
If you got the choice between an A320 and A330 as a developer you will likely pick the A320 since you get more sales for approx the same amount of work.


Once you got the A320 you can then descide to build on it and go ahead with the A330.
I'm not saying this is the only option to make a detailled long haul Airbus, but it surely is the most attractive.

Out of curiosity, will the AOC Flt Log page accessible in the A330X? I see alot of pilots on this particular page when I enter the cockpit at work, and it's almost always on the middle unit
