Some ideas.

Recommended Posts

HiI have been using the FS2Crew for 747X a wile now, and I am really enjoying it.I just had some ideas of some minor changes.During the start-up sequnce, the F/O pulls the ignition to on, and turn the fuel valve switches to on, but in real world, the captaine turns on the fuel switches, from cutoff to on. Is it possible to make this in FS2Crew as well?And during push back, the ground just says, "you are clear to start all engines.", would it be able to change to a sound file were it says, you are clear to start three and four, and when that is done, he says start one and two?Thanks youPontus.E

Hi Pontus,Glad to hear you like FS2Crew :-)Other airlines may do it differently, but at the airline I modeled that's how they do an "auto engine start".However, if you set auto-start to off (there is a switch on the FP page), you would manually set the fuel switches.Cleared to start all engines is fine. If the situation allows for it, there is no reason to clear all 4 at the same time.Cheers,Bryan

Sorry, that was a typo!Should have read: If the situation allows for it, there is not reason *not* to clear all 4 at the same time for start.Perhaps my 747 consultant can step in here if he's reading this to back me up :-)Bryan

Ok, I see what you mean.I just thought it would be fun with some more radio chatter during that sequence.ThanksPontus.E
