737 Service Update-Command syntax SID/STAR- Holdings

Recommended Posts

Hi there.First of all I will say thank you PMDG for the great product updates to the 737 series, works great for me.I have done a series of tests on holding patterns, with entries from many different angles, and now this works great! Look at the pict below, earlier the ac would not pick up the holding pattern from this angle, now it does to it very well. Hdg to entry point 345, inboundcourse holding 106. http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/86095.jpgNow the ac overfly the holding entry point, makes a turn and revert to hld entry, great! Thought I would let you know.One question, I remember Anthony Merton mentioned some time ago that the command syntax for Sid/Star's would be updated in a future update with the command TURN LEFT/RIGHT DIRECT ... I didn't see this issue mentioned in R Randazzo's announcement for the service release. But I tried it, and it seems to work. I have done quite a few test writings and test flight with this command, and it seems to be implemeted and the aircraft follows the path in LNAV very well. Can anyone from PMDG confirm this?http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/86096.jpgThe first example is a turn much greater than 180 deg, while the last two are ca 180 deg. This was hard to do before this service update.
