Water injection indicator lights

Recommended Posts

After the most recent update I'm still not getting the green water injection indicator lights during wet takeoffs.  Anybody else seeing the same issue?

They work correctly now.... just checked yesterday afternoon.... Are you running the engines up enough?

Yes, and it doesn't matter if the AFE does it either, no lights.

What version of the sim are you running?  I'm using FSX-SE.  Ops center says my version is 1.20.8418.

Check out the ground and takeoff procedures for the water/alcohol system on POH 179. In particular ensure you have bleed air from the system and you get the pressure indications referenced during ground checks.

I've checked the procedure a couple times now to insure I'm not missing something.  Everything checks out, water tanks full, pressure indications are good, power is up where it needs to be.  As I stated earlier, having the AFE set power for a wet takeoff gives the same results.

Could someone running FSX-SE confirm that the lights bug was indeed fixed?

I followed the procedure per the manual as well and the indicator lights do not come on. I am not sure what I am missing

How does this look? I used "after start" aircraft status option, then takeoff "wet" AFE checklist. I aborted the checklist as he was setting 30"

Agreed, I am witnessing the same behavior in FSX-SE. Running 1.20.8418 as well

I suggest everyone above submits a ticket so the tech boys can look at it

Hi guys,

Thanks for everyone's feedback. We have found and fixed this bug. It was FSX/SE specific. It will be rectified in the next update.

Try without. None of our products support DX10.

What is the difference to the other lights in the cockpit? All other lights work as described in the manual.

We don't support DX10. It causes random issues. I asked if you would try it without in the interest of troubleshooting. If you'd like to troubleshoot on your own, and just question people's suggestions, be my guest.

No. Since we don't support it, I don't bother with testing in it to see what won't work, but it's usually graphics anomalies, such as this.

Open up the Operations Center, select the DC6 in the drop down list. Select Versions. What's reported there? (And does it prompt you to update?)

Hi, I too have this issue with the lights not coming on. I'm using P3d V4.3.

When letting the AFE do it, or myself, I'm not seeing them..

Thanks,

James Walker

Hi James, you've provided barely enough information to be of any help.  For example, those lights only come on under specific conditions and your problem statement doesn't include any information on the conditions where you are not seeing the lights.  Please expand.

In the same way as the other person said - I'm configuring the aircraft as per the manual, using the AFE. When I select a wet takeoff, the AFE advances the throttles for me and it reaches full power, but the green water injection lights never come on.

 

Flying the DC-6B in P3d 4.3.

 

Thanks,

James

Here is the communication breakdown.  Are W/A injection switches ON?  Is there any difference not using AFE?
