Support overload. We are currently seeing 65% more demand for support then we normally see. We can only assume this is because more people are at home due to the corona crises. Our complete support staff is online and they are working flat out, but it will take some days before we can scale up resources. Please be patient.

Discovering my plane (more issues)

Recommended Posts

Rebooted my pc, started everything up again, clicked for half an hour (goes quicker now because I know where to click). And at about the same point does my fs crash. from 20 to 0.2 fps within 1 minute, over VOR MAS.

This needs more investigation, as I am slowly suspecting NL2000 which I installed at the same time.

Most likely you got some add-on running that has a memory leak. The Twin Otter Extended for sure has not, I tested the last release for 36 hours straight and there was no increase in memory allocated.

Mathijs, you could be so very right. I saw vfr images switching on and off with in seconds, turning to strange colours.
So I de-installed NL2000 province Limburg and reinstalled it.
I did do a quick fly around in a default plane, and no issues.
I stopped FSX, restarted it and went straight to the twotter, engines where running and kept it so, started a route from ehbk to ehrd. Landed at Rotterdam without any issues.

Going to do a complete test this evening, with cold and dark and see if I can get to Rotterdam or Groningen.

I really appreciate all your helping.

Thank you for your patience, and trying to learn me something.
I have done my first flight completely with everything clicking according to the checklist, and checking afterwards.
I must admit, this is fun too, and worth the 30 minutes clicking. (except if I am in a hurry.)

@Mathijs, your conclusion was correct. After my short test yesterday and now doing practically the same thing, nothing happened over VOR MAS. And I could complete my flight from EHBK to EHGG.
The first install of NL2000 was corrupt. I had my idea too.

I still have a couple of question, but that is more lack of knowledge, and I try to pickup as fast as I can. You will see my questions somewhere on the forum.

I have one small issue. And that is the first page of the checklist. At the bottom is something called fire bell mute. I have found that switch on the left part of the plane, but it seems not to work. Not even if I click the checklist with my right mousebutton. Is this a but, or am I doing something wrong?

Hey RobB,

you have to switch on the fire bell test switch and then before switching it off use the mute switch. The bell then should be muted.

Reading, then printing Vol 3 of the manual would seem to have already solved that problem

Oops! this time I'm guilty! as I've flown the old Twin Otter so much I havn't paid so much attention to the new manual. I still think it's positive to point out that there are other options to the intertactive checklist, and thesedays tablets are used more & more in real aviation so it's also realistic.

The checklist maybe long and a little complicated at first, but most checklists are, once you get used to the systems and where everything is placed you"ll develop a flow and it will go by pretty quickly. I maintained real twin otters for a decade and we had few shortcuts for doing things, but we still used a checklist for run ups and taxiing better safe then sorry. In the real aircraft you could zip thru the pre start checklist in a couple of minutes of course it's a lot easier when you're flipping real switches. Honestly, checklists are there in real life for a reason so pilots and maintenance people don't forget things and have things go wrong when they least expect.

You mean like engines quitting after you're %80 in the flight?...

That wondered me too. But no issues anymore after I am using the complete checklist.
I am now trying to get the plane, being used via my Goflight stuff.
