BETA PICS + SFO TO FPS

Recommended Posts

Departure SFO 28R ......... The N1 values have been modified to change according to some real 747 in flight tests. So if anyone was wondering they are not going to change "much in vlaue" and not very often (Unlike N2 values). I am very impressed to say the least! I only saw any N1 change once I started to climb, sorry it does not show here but you will notice! SFO FPS on the ground, boncing between 25-40 with much more in the air! Very smooth, MUCH more smooth than the NG ;-)http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/120547.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/120548.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/120549.jpg[h4]Randy J.

Nice pics randy, looks like you came close to a stall on rotation. ;-)Also, I don't know if the Takeoff Ref Page, L1, should not read FLAP/ACCEL HT rather than just "FLAPS"

I am way under @ 15 deg PLI plus I am gaining speed ;-) 2] Perhaps, I know there are many options on the 744 so will look into this to make certain cause we cannot except less than it being right eh? ;D[h4]Randy J.

Depends on the kind of engines your wear...the GE engines mostly have FT/ACCEL HT.

Also I have to say that the PFD look awesome now.Can we also expect some EPR gauges then??? Because if that isn't a GE A/C then you should see EPR instad of N1

Hello Boaz, I am running an AMD XP 3200 64, an ATI X800XT PE (Sapphire), 1 gig of 3200 DRR, FS 9.1 and windows xp home. VC is super smooth, more smooth than any airliner add-on I own and I own most! [h4]Randy J. Smith[/h4]

> I am running an AMD XP 3200 64, an ATI X800XT PE (Sapphire),>1 gig of 3200 DRR, FS 9.1 and windows xp home.>Hey Randy,Cool shots, thanks.I have a question which stress me: is the 744 being beta test also onfs9, that is: FS which hasnt been patched to 9.1 ?My concern is: because there's been some problems I couldnt get rid of with the pacth, I stayed on fs9.I would really like to know if the there are any 744 beta testers thatare running unpatched FS version, and if any problems related to unpatched FS had been reported yet.So that, once installed, I wont have bad surprises.Regards,

I did most of testing on 9.0 and just recently switched to 9.1. I am not sure yet but I do not believe this will be required for users (that is running only 9.1) but until such testing is complete I would only be guessing. FS 9.1 does provide a much better FPS system, at least it did for me on this computer and my Dell LP.[h4]Randy J. Smith[/h4]

Great, thanks Randy.Glad that you're FS is running smoother since the patch. But you know the story, right, some people gained with the pacth, and some others like me had to stick with version 9.I'd love to read that some other beta testers are still using unpatched FS and reports that everything is fine with version 9, so far.Again thanks for your quick answer.

Nice shots. The 744 is really looking very good. I also like the 2D panel textures; they are a huge improvement over those of the 737.Being a bit of a graphics buff myself, it would be nice to see textures added to the area I circled in red instead of just seeing it left blank and black. I'm aware that the underside of the glareshield is a darker area comapred to the rest of the panel, but its surface should be visible.Thomashttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/120557.jpg

Hi Randy,Your last shot shows a lot of traffic on the ND with FPS at 33. What is your FS9 traffic slider set at? Also, the 737NG instruments were never very smooth. How does the Queen compare relative to instrument "fluidity". Thanks for taking the time to post the pics!Bob...
