mu2 v1.5: what happened guys?

Recommended Posts

Sometimes I wonder if some people are flying this thing from the inside or the outside, heh. Has anyone noticed the huge change in drag between 1.5 and 1.6?

 

I can maintain around 160-170kias with only 30lbs. of torque now in clean configuration...and when dirty on final bringing it all the way back to 20-25lbs of torque speed won't bleed off and you can virtually float to the next airport if desired, lol.

 

Also, whatever changes you made has also killed the nice sound work that David did last week...because you no longer hear the engine sound increase when throwing the throttles forward for takeoff, sadly.

 

Nav mode and APP modes are broken using the GTN750...on 2 test flight I was not able to get the nav to capture laterally at all, and I was within 30 degrees of the final approach course.

 

Plane goes back to the hangar for me, IMO things have gotten technically worse rather than better. Honestly, I'm shocked you found this ready to be released to your partner stores and have moved on already to other projects.

 

...what happened guys?? is there mutiny in the ranks or somethin'? Seemed you were doing so well in the early stages and then it all just fell apart as you rushed it out the door after putting in only a 5 day beta.

First off there is no rush and we are still working on the MU. So be patient as our beta manager has been busy with a new job. So far the only improvements have been gauges that were not working and a few bugs. We did add David's new sound pack but i put the original back until Joe can approve it's ok as he designed the sound package. We did not change the drag besides the flaps drag so the overall drag is still the same. We did fix the sticky taxi issue and it might make the engines a bit stronger so maybe we need to add more drag to the model. Joe will make this adjustment.

 

Joe and i are working on the GPS approach mode!

 

We now have all gauges working 100% minus GPS approach. So yes i have finished my Nieuport 24 which has been on hold for 2 years and i just did a huge update for the C441 with standard features we use in our latest projects. Right now i am working on the newest project until i get some more feedback on issues and Joe can do some test flights. So far i have heard no complaints besides this post which i received today from a friend who will be joining out beta team soon.

 

I can say as long as Joe is ok with the new sound David tweaked we will have that in our next version with Joe's new flight dynamic tweak!

Not sure if this is the right place to suggest, but one gauge that could do with some more adjustment is the ADF. The inner/outer dial combo just doesn't do it for me.

 

The smaller dial only adjusts decimals? It should adjust the decimals and the digit prior to the decimal point, the outer bezel should adjust the first two digits. From a default 1400.0 it took me 3 minutes and 22 seconds to get to the 424.0 I needed by scrolling the mouse wheel - can't be `head down` for that length of time when in the pattern. Using the same technique in an aircraft with the digit split as above? 12 seconds.

You're not mixing up your flight models are you? The only 1.6 posted is for the 441. Moo is still at 1.5.

Can I just jump in here and ask if we need to uninstall flysimware planes before installing the updates?

Advisable to, yes.

 

The updates are full installer packages and there's a built-in uninstaller from the main Windows menu, so probably best to.

yes thanks for that...should have read from 1.4 to 1.5, but it will not let me edit. Anyway...I won't be flying this again until Joe takes the time to seriously work on it.

 

I may be the only one speaking up due to low sales numbers and people who fly vfr, but that is NOT because I'm the only one seeing these issues. The plane needs attention and I think anyone who knows better would agree.

 

Also, this forum is labeled as being your OFFICIAL SUPPORT FORUM. Maybe you should have a hard think about that before claiming that you never log in here to read it...sounds pretty silly, and perhaps another area where you need to employ serious change.

 

Anyway I've said my piece, I'll leave you guys to it...it's your baby not mine.

Dave,

 

I run support here at the Avsim forums, not Mark. That's why he doesn't frequent the forums like I do. These are, in fact, the official support forums. And I do, in fact, show myself here almost daily. You may be the first person I have ever heard make a negative comment towards the support we provide to our customers.

 

Furthermore, the sales on the MU-2 have actually drastically exceeded our expectations. Our best seller by a LONG shot. We are working to get all of the bugs worked out, and you're just going to have to be patient with us. But we will get there. We've had a few hiccups along the way, just like everyone else.

 

Finally, thank you for your "suggestion" in terms of how we can improve. It is understandable that you would make such a remark, as most people have no idea what really goes in to developing an aircraft such as this for flight simulator, especially when we all have real jobs outside of flight sim development.

 

Anybody is more than welcome to get a copy of the necessary software and try producing their own FS projects. I actually encourage it. I wish more people understood what (and how long) it takes.

1. When the money is in my pocket I can be patient until the end of time, but when the money is in your pocket....easier said than done, Joe...especially when the basic nav systems are broken, the fde has been hacked to death, and the sound improvements have been suddenly removed...all with no reasonable explanation by anyone on your team, yet an official announcement that the plane is now good enough to release to stores and that you've moved onto another project....it's worrisome, and now to get  a response that says im just going to have to wait...well lets just say I think you may have needed to think that through and perhaps offered something a bit more soothing...maybe even a refund?..but hey, it's your business not mine...what do I know. It might also have helped to know WHICH specific bugs you are agreeable to fix. I feel as if I'm being told to sit down and shut up.

 

2. I have been a freeware game modder for the better part of 10+ years so I feel your frustration. I understand what it's like to to code line after line for hours on end and then have to spend weeks and weeks  testing over and over...the man hours can be huge whether it be freeware or payware...but you know what?...you are the one who has chosen to go the payware route and I am one of your customers. I do not suggest you go into your bosses office and complain that he'll just have to wait until you get those reports corrected because you have another job to tend to. The fact that you have another job should be YOUR problem, not your customers'.

 

Lastly I'd just like to point out that I was previously in contact with Mark trying to explain some of the nav issues and it seemed he just didn't understand. I felt there may have been a language barrier of sorts getting in our way and that it may be best to wait for you to speak with him upon youre return, as you had been gone for 5 or more days at the time. Next thing I know he's announcing the plane is good to go now and that he's moving on to a new plane project and no other explanation regarding whether or not the issues would be attended to any further..

 

...just left a real bad taste in my mouth. I hope you can understand.

 

Thanks

Dave I can see where your coming from however if you have purchased other payware planes You would be aware that nothing gets released spot on the very first time especially when we are talking system faithful planes and not point and fly toys

 

eg

 

Caranedo ...A complete and utter disaster..zero support

A2A simulations..When they produced war birds nobody complained because nobody could make a comparison however when they first entered the GA market with the C172 it was chaotic with endless patches and frayed tempers but they got it right in the end and learned a lot

PMDG.. also had a lot of problems with the 777 patch coming after 6 months to a year and didn't give customer feed back for months at a time (its still being patched)

 

And there are many more. These guys rely heavily on Customer feedback and Flysimware are no differant. Joe is a hell of a lot friendlier than your average DEV as well, I mean how many DEVS offer free shared on line training flights in a plane they are rated in?

 

Its only been a week or 2. Give it some time and maybe relax a little as well B)

I've been around awhile and understand how poor customer service can be at times no matter who it is, due to lack of communication or other facets. But we're talking apples/oranges here...Carenado is a disaster, granted...but in general with PMDG, Realair...etc...when they release with bugs it's not typically the sort of bugs that stop you from flying the plane as it was meant to be flown, or stop you from using the basic nav/gps features such as the flight director and its associated modes. I will not mention the other issues again that I have already outlined previously.

 

But, my point (or disappointment) has nothing to do with waiting for something to be fixed. It is the fact that the only communication I saw after reporting the nav issues and other issues was that they announced the plane is good to go and that they have moved on. Now keep in mind we are talking about a 2 person team here as far as I know. When 2 guys say they've started a new project and that they are releasing the mu2 to stores since its good enough, well...need I go on? There was no other communication to stop me from thinking of the obvious in a situation like that. it's not as if they said something like "dont worry, were still hard at work fixing the following issues with the mu2 #1, #2, #3, etc."

 

So please understand...Im 50...ive thrown thousands of dollars at all these guys over the past 15-20 years now in support...and frankly...while Joe and Mark may be one of the good guys (I really do not know), I'm tired of being crapped on to put it quite bluntly. We have enough half finished broken planes we've all paid for and all I was doing was reporting my findings and being ignored.

 

...and then the first thing that Joe decides to respond with is sorry youll just have to wait, try building your own plane while working a 2nd job. He may be a nice guy as you say, but he apparently thinks it's ok to treat customer's like an idiot...or at least he did this evening anyway,.

"but in general with PMDG,....when they release with bugs it's not typically the sort of bugs that stop you from flying the plane"

 

Just wanted to correct you on this. I didnt fly it for 6 months along with many others because of stability issues. There are dozens of pages on google about major  bugs that shouldn't be in a $90 plane

 

However you are 100% correct, in theory no plane should be released with serious issues

Hangar, I have reached out to you recently to try to help alleviate some of your frustrations. First off, let me state that I am in no way officially affiliated with Flysimware for what that's worth so I'm just another customer trying to help make an already great product even better.

 

I understand your feelings and frustrations about certain fixes and bugs corrected. We all have them as paying customers. I shared a link with you that would allow you to join the Flysimware FB group and get in direct contact with these guys. From what I see, your knowledge could go a long ways to helping these guys get systems fixed and functioning properly. Give it a shot. Having also been severely disappointed with the recent releases from Carenado, I was ecstatic to actually be able to get on FB messenger with Mark and share what I know, and bugs I have found. And then to go one step further, I was invited into the company Teamspeak to share my thoughts and suggestions. Think you would get that with Carenado, PMDG, Etc?

 

To sum up what I have learned, Mark is the 3D artist and coder, and Joe is the expert providing the information Mark needs to tweak things and make it all come together. As well as being the one that deals with the majority of the customer service items. They are good guys, more than willing to work with customers to make improvements. The fact that a relatively new company that they are, is this open, and making such drastic improvements with each release, is something I don't think you will find in other development companies.

 

Do they have our money? Yes. Are you (or anyone else) being ignored? Not at all. I am happy to share my 20+ years of aviation knowledge with these guys to make the MU better, and fix what's broken. Many developers, free and payware, have full time jobs, families to support, and real lives outside of our community. This has to be understood on the most basic human level. Cut them a little slack.

 

And lastly, at the risk of sounding a bit harsh, if you truly like the product, and want it fixed, don't go running to the forums complaining and bickering when you have methods of communications available to you to provide your input. Just because a guy is great at making 3D models, and putting together a nice aircraft, does not mean he is an expert at RNAV/RNP approaches or IFR flying. Share your knowledge, teach them how it's supposed to work. If it's possible to make the aircraft do what you want within the limitations of FSX and reality, they will make it happen. This I will guarantee with my own hard earned money buy giving you a refund myself if that is what it comes down too.

 

Let's remember that this community is relatively small, and it is incredibly daunting for an upstart to create products to the level they already are. We all want quality products. And the next project in the pipeline will be even better. Put your experiences with other companies aside and let's help these guys get better. They can and will do it. Be a part of the solution if your willing to spend a little time with Mark and Joe. I know I am, and it feels great to be a very small part of the end goal.

 

Ok, that's the end of my exhausted end of the day rant. I hope you can understand what I'm getting at by my wall of text above.

Not sure how we can put Flysimware on the same pedestal as either PMDG or Carenado? They are a small development team, and it is clear from this and other releases that their business motto is get it out there and use the customer resource to help get it right. For a small development team that is how it must be. If you don't want to be part of that, don't be an early adopter. I've learned that lesson with Carenado and Alabeo and the money is staying in my pocket, as the difference is that neither of those two so-called companies actually care. This is still a work in progress - and it has to be said it's had far more progress than the other developer working on a Moo.

 

Dave, your frustration spilled over. You've now been told that development is ongoing, Can we not just stop wasting developer time arguing your misconceptions and get on with the better option of helping them make it better? 

 

Joe, perhaps you can highlight what is being looked at right now?

last time im repeating it guys, I appreciate your inputs and I sincerely don't want to continue an argument...I DID my part as a paying beta tester (seriously?...at least they're honest about it here which is refreshing)...I was in contact with the coder several times trying to explain the issues...he failed to understand and stopped contacting me so I waited for Joe and posted here in the forums since Joe was missing in action for several days...and the rest is history. So after reading my posts Joe basically tells me sorry, you'll just have to wait and in the meantime try building your own plane while having 2 jobs.

 

I've been known in my life for having a very long fuse, and for being patient as pie as a beta tester working endless hours during my quiet season when I have the availability. But having my email responses ignored, then having been told that they've moved on already after a testing period of only a few days with such glaring issues that remain, having thrown $70 to them within 3 weeks to show my support of the hobby and their effort...and then being somewhat slammed by Joe's poor c/s attitude because he's a bit miffed that I commented about how their official support forum has had no support for about a week from him without reason or warning that he would be away or unable to work is just a tad much for me these days, sorry.

 

Some of you may feel that you get better results from him, but I unfortunately am not impressed right now I must admit.

I hope I am not stepping onto a landmine.  I can't think of one product, including MS famous FSX, that was born perfect from day one. I rate all developers, therefore, on a scale of 1-10 rather all 10s or 1s( 1 being the lowest). Take for example Just Flight. I purchased the DC8 and from day one it was flawed.

A few updates later, the product was still flawed. Then the developer "moved onto other projects" and promised an update "any time" soon---2 months have already passed since that "any time soon" promise.  So as of this day, months later, I have a product that I no longer fly, and have pretty much given up complaining to the developer about it. I consider JF a seasoned developer, who should learn or have learned over the years about the importance of overpromising or underdelivering. Sure, they claim that third party developers are the ones in charge, but, in the end, I hold them responsible, since they are the ones who decide to sell it. I give them a fairly low grade for being poor learners with respect to customer expectations a stable products.  I rather see a "light" product advertised as light, rather than a "fully  modeled" plane that turns out less than fully modeled.

 

I also give developers a lot of credit for creating products for which many don't have real life experience. So, for example, it's not easy to code a DC8 and expect many young developers to even have a clue of what a dc8 is.  This is a conundrum, because we want high fidelity( imagine, some people complaining about window shades) products at cheap prices developed by people who may not have real life aircraft  experience.  Thus to my point:

I always loved the MU2. I purchased the MU2 and like it a lot. Is it perfect? Almost. I take the developer at his word that a few updates are coming.  Three months from now I'll decide what grade to give them.

 

Buyer beware: I can't think of too many products by developers whose reputation is not known. I know what I am getting into when I buy a product from some developers with low grades. What can I say? I am a sim addict. In sum, to buy a product from a low grade developer is like buying a car from a bad dealer.  The folks at Flysimware have so far shown superior attitude and commitment. I will judge them not today, but sometime in the future. This is the nature of our hobby, so let's not pretend it's otherwise.

I wish I could have put it so eloquently. :) This is also the way I feel. My JF mistake was the recently released F27. Thankfully it was cheap. The best part was getting to hear Rolls Royce Dart engines again. Brought back a lot of memories of my early years on the ramp.

I have yet to buy a product that was "perfect" on the day of it's release it's just not possible, there will be bugs. So far the MU-2 is moving along pretty well  it does have it's bugs and hopefully 

they will be worked out in due time. The best flying version from the limited amount of time i spent in a RW MU is version 1.2 . Adding the LUA script didn't affect the flight model and actually put the taxi speed just about right. The MU was the first "fly it to the runway " plane that i dealt with and as soon as the props went forward and the flaps came down  power was needed to get it there.

 

Flysimware is doing a good job and have committed to continuing  there good job so i'm sure the MU will be a winner when it's finished, Others have also stepped up and started working on other 

things that will be a nice addition for sure  so keep up the good work.

Sometimes I wonder if some people are flying this thing from the inside or the outside, heh. Has anyone noticed the huge change in drag between 1.5 and 1.6?

 

I can maintain around 160-170kias with only 30lbs. of torque now in clean configuration...and when dirty on final bringing it all the way back to 20-25lbs of torque speed won't bleed off and you can virtually float to the next airport if desired, lol.

 

Also, whatever changes you made has also killed the nice sound work that David did last week...because you no longer hear the engine sound increase when throwing the throttles forward for takeoff, sadly.

 

Nav mode and APP modes are broken using the GTN750...on 2 test flight I was not able to get the nav to capture laterally at all, and I was within 30 degrees of the final approach course.

 

Plane goes back to the hangar for me, IMO things have gotten technically worse rather than better. Honestly, I'm shocked you found this ready to be released to your partner stores and have moved on already to other projects.

 

...what happened guys?? is there mutiny in the ranks or somethin'? Seemed you were doing so well in the early stages and then it all just fell apart as you rushed it out the door after putting in only a 5 day beta.

 

Meanwhile, back at the specifics: I do NOT see what Dave reports at 30% torque. From 30lbs under Gross and at a stable 90% at 9,500 ft I saw a steady speed decay from retarding power levers to 30% (not sure why you would be at that setting in clean flight except for setting up an fps-orientated controlled rapid descent, but there you go - normal minima will be 35%) I see a 2.5 minute decay to 130 kts at approx 5-6 degrees pitch.

 

Given the book talks about clean configuration of 35% at +12 degrees around 115 kts, there might be some argument that drag is not quite set right, but not by much. 

 

Given the discrepancy, I suggest Hangar you try an uninstall and reinstall of 1.5.

 

For performance indicators away from those truth-bending official manuals, you can get a really good document from the Feds, relating to the type recurrency approvals here

The updates i have done so far were to fix bugs. I am waiting for Joe so we can re check the flight dynamics and see if we can add a GPS approach mode. And i have David's sound fix on hold until Joe can test it. So besides these minor few things to go all bugs were fixed and that's what i meant i can now add this product to my partners stores. But for being finished we need a few weeks not 5 days like the beta model got fixed. And this gives us more time for others to report issues so we can do 1 more major update. A lot of people emailed me to release the product to the major stores when it was still a beta and i said no way!

 

As far as working on a new project or other project updates i am working on other projects as long as we get another update for the MU in 2 or 3 weeks!

 

I would appreciate that you would stop posting as it seems to me your just trying to make a public scene. I answered your questions and we all have to wait a few weeks! You should have just emailed me asking if there was more updates rather than start a post called "What happened guys". Nothing happened i think your just not happy as we only fixed 99% of our bugs and have 1 more to go and a final flight dynamics tweak. i am only 1 person and it took a lot of work to fix the bugs that needed more attention first. And i must wait for the ones i can't update alone.

Finally got it yesterday. took 5 min to figure out how to start engines, trying to recall video you put out.But got there. Only had short flight but it is fun. Thanks guys, all the lessons can only improve. Have you ever considered asking someone good at painting to assist with textures and maybe offering them a free version, It will help your sales and wont hurt the overheads. As for all the ranting, it is just the way the world is today, too demanding see it on every forum it sickens me.

 

Thanks guys cant wait for the next.

5.Updated installer for steam edition
6.WX500 weather radar works using the GNS and GTN models. (Now only 2 models with all features available. Rather than having 2 static models and only 1 working model with no ability to control the night textures we decided to make both versions have better night textures with or without owning the product but the knobs will not animate due to fact we do not have the XML coding. Overall this gives you more options with less models and better night textures minus animated knobs.)

Hanger i found no issues using these instructions below using rev 1.5 

 

GTN 750 & GNS 530:

 
GPS system:
1.When using a flight plan you must be within 2 NM of the waypoint course or when using Arrival and departure. If you decide to do an approach using the GPS system select the AP NAV mode since the Glide slope is a visual only and this mode will only hold lateral. The GTN warns you when you select this type of approach and it's for visual only. Best to switch to the Nav system for approaching.
 
NAV system: 
2.When in AP NAV mode tune in the navigation frequency to the next VOR. When ready to approach an airport select AP APR mode for ILS approach or AP APR/VOR mode for lateral approach only. These modes will capture when the CDI needle starts to move and will disengage the altitude hold modes once the glide slope is centered. 
 
3.If your flying a flight plan or holding a navigation VOR or using AP HDG mode and about to intercept an approach keep the AP NAV mode active and press the APR or VOR/APR. Once you intercept the AP NAV mode or AP HDG mode will disengage automatically.
