List of Unofficial Fixes/Add Ons for SU2

Recommended Posts

PMDG: Delete is you feel this is inappropriate!I found this while searching the forum for the list of what SU2 was to include. I know some have asked, as I was interested as well.NOTE: This is an unofficial pre-SU2 list of fixes that was posted a few weeks back. Only PMDG can verify what has been done for sure as it pertains to the released update!! PLEASE DO NOT COMPLAIN if this list contains something not included in the update :-)ChrisFMC/CDU:===========================================================New pages- RTE DATA page- PROGRESS page 2 (head / cross winds, LNAV Xtrack error etc)- REF NAV DATA pages (wpt, navaid, airport runways in review mode)- FLIGHT PLAN SUMMARY (from REF NAV DATA page, allows selection of saved FPs)- DES FORECASTSMods to existing pages- sid star transitions- approaches- Implemented approach transitions- missed approaches- sorted entries in select desired waypoint by distance- MOD ERASE EXEC on CLB/CRZ/DES pages- CRZ CLB / CRZ DES announced on crz page- MCP alt in scratchpad when in cruize and MCP alt reset (makes starting a CRZ CLB CRZ DES easy by just uploading scratchpad in L1 - after EXEC'ing- crz winds input possible on PERF INIT page - ABEAM PTS on LEGS for DTOs- identical CDU messages are no longer stacked- some messages go away if condition no longer exists (DRAG REQUIRED / RESET MCP ALT /...)- holding the CLR key for 1 second will clear the whole scratchpadBehaviour- VNAV descent completely based on predictions (PERF INIT/ RTE DATA/DES FORECASTS)- TOGA upon TO / landing will now command keep track at engagement as roll mode, not HDG SEL. (no roll mode announcement).- GA 1 push / 2 pushs MCP speed blanked, speed commanded as per flaps calculated for MTOW- 1 AP GA will disconn AP / FD only- CWS stuff- Anti- Stall system will force LVL CHG if needed- Engaging LVL CHG will keep current speed target if one exists, else current speed is selected as target- Throttle will not kick in when decelerating and approaching speed target- VNAV will not disconnect except if reaching Vmo / Mmo above airport speed limit or target + 15 (!) below- decel before TOD if requiredProcedures- sid star transitions- approaches- approach transitions- missed approaches- holds in procedures- speeds in procedures- flyover in procedures- turn direction (not yet implemented in ACS)Other fixes- fixes for INTC calculation- fixed problem unable to see transitons when route not active- CRZ DES working (-1000 fpm)- TOD sequencing correctly when just before a wpt - fixed a problem that resulted in going to VNAV PTH and levelling off on an alt float wpt- target IAS Mach display correctly on CRZ page- Fixed problem with star selection (not going to page2)- Fixed problem not correctly merging sid star flight plan without discontinuity- Fixes the hdg intercept problem- Des now / crz des should level off at highest restriction- FMC version is again 10.4, new appraoch page and RTE reverse are back- fixed the fix page fix not appearing on ND- fixed sid/rnw selection- fixed the TOD ETA / dist / non-sequencing problems- fixed the problem with common part of sid- FMCSPD is announced as AT mode when levelling off at MCP alt coming from VNAV. It will revert to MCPSPD when speed dial is actioned or a another SPD pitch mode is selected.- Fixed the problem that when at cruize alt and engaging VNAV the AC will start a CRZ DES - FMC speed target in cruize below DES page airport speed limit alt will no longer go above airport speed limit if applicable, whatever the CRZ target speed is.- changes to MCP SPD button logic so VS does not get engaged when SPD button is pressed while VS mode is inhibited (because MCP alt not reset and holding at alt)- If an inherited speed constraint exists in descent, one can delete it with DELETE L3 in DES page to resume whatever previous speed limit there was.- LNAV not engaging on ground and dep. rnw not showing properly on ND- MCP FMC alt conflicts.- TAS SAT ok on PROG page 2.- TOC TOD indicators floating in the air following a DTO fixed.- As per Steve's request, took away indicators on mod legs - Decels are modeled differently- the TOD is positioned according to an idle path angle, which is function of the aircraft's weight winds temperature etc- AT will switch off upon landing- RTE wpts no longer vanish from page when 1 wpt in the airway sid star is sequenced - CRZ CLB speed targets management fixed, as per your reports - Corrected slow climb to MCP alt when leveling off at cruize alt and MCP alt > cruize alt- SPD des will initiate descent automatically if no PTH available- VNAV disconnect taken away in CLIMB ONLY when speed constraint with no alt. Waiting for further info (HJ) - VNAV PATH descent : level segments are levelled off and flown as if alt hold was engaged : ie. proper.- Lots of fixes on FIX predictions (including the DTO problems, distances etc) - panels should udpdate correctly regardless of popups and frame rates should increase when navigating in the different panel, even when not using the switcher- mag heading used for runways in FMC instead of mag course (from navdata files)- NB is now a valid wpt fix name- Reversion to VS mode when MCP alt is changed during ALT ACQ- Reversion to FL CH when underspeed is improved- Speed button should be lit even if throttle announced ARM when in MCPSPD thrust- TRANS NONE announced in APPROACHES on ARR page- save restore of FPs take procedure floats into account- NAVAID and FIX are now valid navaid and fix namesGENERAL ITEMS:================================================================- Added Zoom Panel Flaps/GearLights gauges- Added MCP Flight Director MAster light- added EFIS DH fast/slow increment functionality- improved FSUIPC connectivity- disabled APU Fuel logic to prevent fuel imbalance caused by FS- Implemented all-new "RightMCP" gauge for virtual cockpit proper display ofF/O course and F/D switch- Added Flap lever Sound- Corrected Upper EICAS commanded N1 display- Corrected logic when reading AIRAC database to conform with internationaldecimal point notation- Implemented new Keyboard Handling logic with commandsNAV DISPLAY FUNCTIONALITY===========================================================- fixed ND Map STA button functionality to allow local VORs to showregardless of first turning EFIS VOR switch to VOR setting- corrected ND Map FIX display to extend course line from selected FIXindefinitely- fixed ND Map "ARPT" label display- fixed ND Altitude Arc to display only when Vertical Speed is >+/-600ft/min- fixed ND Altitude Arc to not display when too close to acft position- corrected ND Holding Pattern display- changed floating wpts to display as circle rather than "star" icon- Implemented new logic for flight path drawingPFD functionality==================================================================- Allowed for different variants of 737NG (600/700) to provide different MaxFlap speeds- Corrected Target IAS/Mach logic (now always displays target IAS/Mach fromMCP window)- Corrected Target Altitude logic (now always displays target altitude fromMCP window)- Removed bogus amber buffet speed line when at high altitude / high speedconfig- corrected flap speeds display logic (flaps 2 now correctly shown etc.)- corrected display of SINGLE CH according to new pics sent by beta testers- removed boxes around empty PFD MCP annunciations- added black background for radio alt display- provided new logic for display of radio alt when main gear/landing gear onground- improved display of AoA indicator, with new AoA limitGPWS===================================================================- Implemented according to real-world Sundstrand Mark V GPWS spec- Added "Terrain Terrain" mode 2 sound- Added "Too low -
