Panel wish list

Recommended Posts

OK, after four long months, my stuff finally arrived from Chile, including my TinMouse development system. Work on the TinMouse II should start again relatively soon.For those with *panel* issues, please post them here in this thread so I can build a consolidated list of things to work on. This is for panel issues only...please don't ask for model changes, repaints, wing views, etc. There are still no plans for a VC, and still no plans to port the plane over to FSuX.RegardsBob ScottColonel, USAF (ret)ATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-VColorado Springs, CO

Dear Bob,Welcome back and welcome to your new home.my wish;Sperry 177 instead Sperry 77 :) or any gauge adding for just only vertical speed adjustment. I know all of your work has been for early model of 737-200 thatswhy you set Sperry 77, also there were some of codes they are hard to change.I'm still satisfy about my 732 but if you can add V/S capability,would be great.Thanks

I don't know if it's possible given the limitations of the crowded panel (and R. Probst's original bitmap) to include the gauges needed for modern RVSM use, like a backup altimeter and artificial horizon, but it would be neat to see a more modern presentation. And of course I can't wait to see how you'll integrate the ISG FMC into the panel. Since I don't own FSX, and don't intend to buy it, the lack of a port is not an issue for me.Thanks Bob!John G.

Overall i like the 'oldness' of the TinmouseII very much. The panel really feels like it has been used for quite a time. So my wishes for the panel are only cosmetic and not for the logic behind it, cause i find the aircraft and panel to be really good.* The pressurization gauges are quite hard to read, at least on 1280x1024. Also some writings on lamps in the overhead panel look blurred.* A place to include the ADEU reader for the CIVA INS.* During my flight i often opened the wrong panel via the simicons. Maybe ordering them top-down would help?Apart from that, i'm very happy with the TinmouseII. Thanks!

No issues here Bob, the TinMouse II is awesome.I would love to see a wide screen version of the panel bitmap ;)

Hi Bob, First of all I'm glad you are on the way to being settled back in Colorado - sure missed your presence on the forum.I think the Tinmouse panel remains one of the best out there and I would not be too unhappy if no changes were made. Having said that I would really like to see a few things added/modified. I've looked at a few cockpit photos on the internet and as far as I can see there are only a few 'mods' to consider: a Sperry 177 is an obvious one, and an FMC (Ernie Alston's is good IMHO). And I strongly support provision of a widescreen version - this would have the added benefit of allowing inclusion of the standby altimeter and art horizon mentioned by John G. Whatever you can do will be fine by me.best regardsRick CanhamAustralia

Found 2 things:[*]The sqawk reminder on the bottom of the upper radio panel has overlapping clickspots. If you change the first number, it can happen you also change the third.[*]Please don't forget to fix the DME for DME VORs.A wish would be to have a groundhandling gauge or the panel prepared for one (like groundhandling v4).I love the mouse! Really one of the great ones, even better then most of the payware. Great work and i say that as a not Boeing fan. ;-)

Hello and thank you for asking all TinMouse fanatics like myself to be a part of a panel wish list. I personally would love to see a new ADI and HSI similar to the one on Dreamfleets 727 and like the one in this photo http://www.airliners.net/photo/WestJet/Boe...-Adv/0951037/M/ to be considered for the panel. I know this is for the panel only but instead of starting a new thread I'll quickly say that it would also be nice to see the latest version of the mouse with TCAS be integrated into one installer eliminating all the updates. Again Thank you for all the time you've invested in this amazing aircraft, it boggles my mind how this bird has been neglected from all the payware big wigs.CheersMesaba

If some great 3D artist join the team and make a nice 3d render of the 732 panel, with SP-77, with a new multipanel system (would be nice if follow some of the panel-gauge from DF727 style), would be wonderful.Also, change the PDCS system to the PMS system, with A/T and climb/descent profile + RA Tape + F/S.

A Custom Autopilot that won't break to right when a roll mode is selected, preferably a SP177.Collaboration with a texture artist would be nice too :( Bozhan.

Love the Tin Mouse II. It's a beautiful simulation of the 737-200. I have 2100 hours on the real aircraft and I'm actually still current on it as I work for a government safety board. I think the glaring deficiency in the fabulous panel is that the 3 hydraulic gauges and B Low Quantity light are not present. I think Bob, you mention somewhere on the forum that you have considered doing a right-side, co-pilot panel. If you could do that it would be really awesome.

Bob, welcome home from a fellow CO resident. Personally I don't want any stinking "FMC" or any other modernization of the TM2 :( . I'm perfectly happy with the CWS system and the Sperry 77, as is. I've got MORE than enough freakin' glass cockpit, FMC totin' metal to last a lifetime! I want it to stay "old school". Completing the PDCS was mentioned and that gets my vote. An overhead or dome light, for us old blind farts, would be helpfull and a bit of panel graphics clean-up to sharpen things up.Other than that and a few clean-up items already mentioned by others...I'm happy with the "technological philosophy". If some of these can't be accomplished...so be it...I won't complain. I won't put in an FMC or any of the other "modernization" stuff anyway, so if the next version comes with it, without option...I'll be skipping it. I ain't afraid of no INS, I can take off, cruise and land my Mouse completely by hand...I don't need another addon with a chipset doing it for me. Vic

I second (or third or fourth) the idea that it's already the best thing since sliced bread. The PDCS being completed would make it just that little bit better.Bill
