Version 1.01 of RandomCockpitB747 ready for download

Recommended Posts

A few days back I mentioned I had made a new tool for usage with PMDG's B747-400F. I have now finished adding all the features I had initially planed (so don't expect more updates in the near future). This version (1.01) will also let you "Randomize" the Radio/Throttle-Panel, MCP, EFIS, ISFD and "The rest of the Cockpit".The link is the same as mentioned previously:Over the last couple of days I have been putting together a new (freeware) tool for PMDG's B747-400F that you can download via this link: www.liljendal.dk/flightsim/RandomCockpitB744.zipNormally when you are doing your Initial Cockpit Preparaion it is a dull no-brainer as every button is where you left it the last time (as it was saved in the Flight/Panel-states). When it comes to flying a long flight over several sections this is a good thing, but when it comes to entering the same "Dark and Cold" cockpit on EVERY flight its becomed abit "dull". Basically this tool lets you specify the probabillity of what should could/should change and then it inject these changes into a "default dark and cold" panel-state. So next time you enter your cockpit you don't know what to expect.Enjoy,http://jdtllc.com/images/rcv4bannerbeta.jpgPelle F. S. Liljendal

Great Idea! This simulates the "last pilot didn't shut down correctly" scenerio, and gives you a reason to follow the cockpit preparation checklist.

BTW: I forgot to mention in the preview note, that I've just uploaded (same link) a small update (version 1.02). I learned (the hard way ) that the Fuel-load is part for the Panel-State file. Meaning if you had used the PMDG Cargo/Fuel loader and afterwards loaded the "Randomized" Panel-state file, then that fuel load was discarded. Then you had to use the PMDG menu to "re-load" the fuel but doing so would re-set all of the fuel-pump switches (removing some of the "randomness").This updated version lets you enter a Fuel Load that is injected into the Panel-state file, mening you don't have to re-load the fuel via the PMDG menu, hence you still have the "randomness" regarding the fuel-pump switches. However be warned there is no "overflow" check so if you want to use this feature be sure you load the correct amount of fuel (who said fueling a B747-400 would be an easy task ).http://jdtllc.com/images/rcv4bannerbeta.jpgPelle F.
