Fscaptain fuel planning broken by new options

Recommended Posts

Ever  since fscap started its fuel calculations were lways buggy.

 

But you could bypass this by entering your own figure during the dispatch in admin.

 

However no matter how the fuel figure was arrived at in Dispath either your figure or fscap figure.

Once fuel being loaded inside sim, fscap always loads extra in my instead of 500pounds loaded 600pounds

 

So the fuel figure agreed in admin is now NEVER what happeans at load, meaning fuel planning impossible.

 

In my case planning gs flight with range that requires nearly full tank, and fscap needing extra unplanned fuel makes the flight impossible cause its asking for more fuel than the ac tank.

 

To top it up, you could previously accept aircraft or manifest load during reconciliation, but now reconciliation is broken, meaning no compromise at that stage.

 

 

DOES ANYBODY OLDEST VERSION OF FSCAPTAIN THAT WILL WORK WITH P3DVE

 

 

if YOU DONT WANT TO RUIN YOUR FLIGHT, DONT BOTHER WITH VERSIONS 1.7.1 AND 1.7.2.

 

 

The math for fuel never gona work in new versions of fscap cause for one thing fuel reserve amount information is duplicated inside the config for the aircraft and a general options file, 2 variables for same value,

 

 

Time to move on for me. wasted enough time on this, enough ruined flight setups.

 

The old fscap allowed you to bypass its bugs, this one doesn't .
