Second, you really should fly the Tutorial and become familiar with the introduction document.

Hi fellow simmers!

 

First time poster but long time lurker here. I had the same exact problem with my default scenery. I fully configured with flaps 30, gear down but terrain warn still warns me of impending doom in a plain field LOL

 

I read the intro documents but nothing comes up about the terrain warn. Is this to do with the terrain mesh as other threads may have suggested?

Ryan, the most common reason for the alert may be high descent rate, landing configuration etc., but not sure how terrain mesh is a factor.  Have you flown the tutorial? Landing at EHAM okay?

I might have a high decent rate when I did visual approaches, but it also warns of terrain during autolands as well.

 

I know the 737 is not the 777, but I've landed both planes with the same high decent rate but the 737's GPWS didn't sound.

 

Is the 777's GPWS more sensitive than the 737?

Just did an autoland into WSSS. Terrain warn was still screaming at me.

Try flying it in a normal flight and not part of a "mission." Report back.

I just did a free flight from WSSS to WMKK. All seemed in order. Maybe just a glitch with a mission is all. Oh well, at least we all know that we can't fly PMDG's planes on missions now haha

 

Thanks for all the help Dan and Kyle!

The "Landing Altitude" on your lower EICAS says it all.

 

Yep. It was that and the Mission Indicator thing at the top left.

 

 

 

Still learning the T7 is all haha

 

Kinda...

 

The missions are gamey. This is meant to be (more of) a simulation. The LANDING ALT alert is basically telling you that the plane isn't aware of where you will be landing it, which is part of the reason it's warning you that you're low to the ground.

Ah I see.

 

I thought it would be more practical if more realistic planes were put in realistic scenarios like the mission.

Nope - the missions don't do all of the background programming of the FMC that's necessary for flights.

Well yeah, that's true as well.

 

Anyways, thanks for the tip and help Kyle!

I'm having the exact same issue, except unlike the OP I'm not doing a "mission" or anything and it is dialed in correctly the airport and runway.

 

Anyone have any ideas or anyone else have this problem?

 

here is a video segment of it:

Sorry to be "hijacking" this, but how can I trigger the display of the "lesser" engine values like FF and N2 on the primary EICAS as well?

Hello,

 

As far as I know, you cannot change what is displayed on the upper EICAS regarding engines values. However, you can see these values on the lower EICAS by selecting ENG on the EICAS control panel.
You may confuse with the NGX where you can have all the values on the upper EICAS by pressing twice the ENG button.

Below the ND is a switch that has EICAS as its right most position. Right click the switch until the line on it lines up with EICAS. Go to Control Selection Panel and left click the two most upper left buttons. Return to the original switch and left click it twice making sure it line up with NAV. The compact display will appear then.

It works! Thank you very much.

 

The amber message says "Landing Altitude." Did you set up your FMC?

 

Not my screenshot!
