I did my first flight and it all worked very well. It's nice to be able to switch between the different languagues for different flights. The recordings are not as good as the american recordings (sounds more like sitting in a large hall), but the different accents and added soundeffects are very nice!One little error I found: at about 25" the F/O says he walks out for some coffee. The captain (me) says that's fine, but it isn't because he has to test the GPWS a few seconds later. In some myserious way he still manages to push the test button while he's not in the cockpit, but I think it's not very realistic to have such a button nearby the coffee machine...

Hahaha, well noted! :( I can try to adjust the timing, but the wav file which contains the coffee bit (my attempt to make the cockpit a little more lively!) is tied to the Start Boarding button and dialogue. If the button is pushed very early while the copilot is still making his checks, something like you described may happen.I'll see what the feedback on the "extra sounds" is and if required I can remove it completely.Thanks for the feedback on sound quality too. This is a known tradeoff - the recordings are for the most part made in each "actors" home, so the equipment and surroundings vary. Sound qualities like room echo can't be removed completely, even with professional equipment. We'll improve on that though for the coming voice sets!Kimmo Kyle voice set managementFS2Crewkyle@fs2crew.com(Finland UTC +2)

According to the manual you should call the purser to start boarding after you checked the fuel with the engineer. After that, the FO has to do his entire cockpit preparation checks 'phase 3'. So I would advise the FO to get his coffee after the emergency lights and evac test or after he has done all the cockpit preparations.

Don't do that! I like the extra sounds, altough it would be nice if the FO offered me a cup of coffee too. Now I still have to get my own coffee...

I completely understand and it's no big deal. Thanks for this nice work!
