Service-based failures and auto-cruise

Recommended Posts

Dear fellow captains:

 

I have a question regarding auto-cruise and service-based failures. Since I enjoy taking long-haul flights with the B77L but do not have the time to sit in front of the PC for 10+ hrs, I almost always use the auto-cruise feature. Additionally, I would like to enable service-based failures but fear that, since I also leave the PC in auto-cruise for an hour or so, I would end up crashed somewhere should a serious malfunction occur during that time. So my question: since auto-cruise can automatically pause the aircraft before TOD, will it also pause the simulator should a service-based failure occur during auto-cruise? Did somebody try that?

 

Kind regards,

Markus

I don't believe it does... I have pranged into the ocean before due to this. But my fault for accelerating the failures 250 times.

As far as I know on the current RTM version it does not pause if a failure happens. I'm not sure there has been change in SP1 on that matter.
