Improved Docs: Capt/FO Flows - Side x Side

Recommended Posts

So, ever wonder what the FO was up to, as you were completing your own flow? You could flip back and forth in the docs, but that is awkward.

 

I have pulled the information out and laid it out side by side. Document can be printed out in a booklet, each facing page will show the relevant information in sequence, and is co-ordinated with the other officer's sequence on the other side.

 

Fully searchable PDF. File attached below.

Absolutely awesome, Orest. As Bryan has stated, you deserve further exposure to something as brilliant as this. You've already with this raised Bryan's tremendous work, one notch higher.

Well, seemed a logical layout - then just a bit of typing, and some nifty formatting. Guess I stumbled on a clever idea. Enjoy!

 

And, of course, many thanks to Bryan and the whole FS2Crew crew, for the product.

Do get around to installing it, FS2Crew/voice is a fabulous product, I really don't want to fly without it.

 

And you're welcome, on the side by side guide.

It is referred to from the user contribution thread (and also from the NGX forums), but with 1,337 views, any value to make it a sticky?

NIce work on these files my friend. Appreciate your work and sharing them with the community.

 

I have done a few of my own checklists and stuff for other airframes, but have only recently got the PMDF 737 NGX so appreciate not having to re-invent the wheel that you have already created so well. Less time producing checklists means more time flying this beautiful creating, which can only be a good thing. :biggrin:

 

Thanks again, mucho respect.

Just a thought on your fine work for a possible 'future release' - to help beginners to the 737 NGX would it be possible to incorporate an indicator of which panels to find items on the checklist (where necessary) and markers for things that are not modelled to save us 'noobs' from too much searching?!

 

I have got a good feel around the cockpit now, but wonder if this may help the newbies out. I know the hardcore will say all the info is there in the documentation and I am all in favour of people getting to grips with it through these docs, but your quick reference checklist format is sure to be a massive help to newcomers, to help them find their ways in the early days.

 

As I said, just a thought.....

Not a bad idea, but I think it might be a challenge to include locations, without cluttering it up. Now, they are all based on a logical flow from panel to panel, I suppose a quick pencil sketch with some arrows on a screen capture, might do the trick. Yes, the initial times it will be a bit of chore, but it should become automatic reasonably quickly - much as it should be. That is when it really "flies"!

 

All items are properly simulated, so do need to be checked, save and except the weather radar.

Orest - thanks for the prompt reply and I do appreciate your point about cluttering it up and also disturbing the flow. I was thinking simply of a text reference along the lines of overhead panel or centre pedestal, etc and a rough location reference within the panels.

 

Interesting to note that you say all items are properly simulated (except weather radar, which is a shame I feel), so if this is the case, can you point me in the direction of 'gyro caging control' (point 20 on pre-flight)?

 

Thanks again for all your hard work.

To test cage the gyro, you click the circular knob below the standby attitude indicator.

 

Unfortunately FSX does not properly model free water/rain/snow, which makes it impossible to accurately model radar reflections. As such, PMDG decided to not do it, as it could only turn out to be a sham. It is just a limitation of the underlying flight simulator itself.

Thanks Orest (and sorry for the delay).

 

It was a noob error - no gyro cage when you have a livery on without the standby attitude indicator! D'Oh. At least I hadn't completely lost my marbles when I asked where to find it!

 

Best wishes
