Is there any good failure generator for FS9?

Recommended Posts

Hi folks, I came across this old site from the now extinct flytechsoft.com who made "Alert!! Pro" for fs2002/2004: http://web.archive.org/web/20070405183423/....com/index.html...I believe it's not available anymore, and I was wondering if there is any failure generator add-on as comprehensive as Alert Pro? It could simulate brake effects for actual runway conditions(dry/wet/snow) as well as a pilot's fault monitoring system (flaps/gear damage, engine abuse, etc.) I know FSPassengers has some of these features, but I'm looking for a stand alone application that could be run from another computer. Thanks,SP

Randomly generated faults is one thing, but,I would like to see a utility that would generate failures based on real world probability and also operating conditions both weather and pilot-induced. One might use such a program and never encounter a failure, or just see some minor glitches like the AP going whack. However, just knowing that program was running in the background would make me pay a bit more attention to emergency procedures than I do now and would add a factor of "white knuckles" at times to the flying.

I would say your best bet is the payware fspassengers, very exciting when something goes wrong, especially when it's always unexpected. Could be a fuel leak, a pressurization problem, an engine shut down, all sorts of cool stuff.

Yup FSP is the way to go.If you over speed the flaps they break. Land too hard, you bust a gear. And so on....It also has other random failures factored in (and they are scalable). The failures could be minor or major. Bird strikes to brake failures.I was flying my PMDG 737 and noticed the oil temperature rising until it pegged, in the right engine. Declared an emergency and diverted. And I flew with it until it failed as I was 20 miles from the field.Quick gimmie the QRH!!!!hehe, I learned how to do a flaps 15 landing!I relized after I should have shut the engine down.FSP does not model engine managment. But it does model aircraft maintenance. IE: if you don't maintain the airplane it will encounter problems....
