Beta 3.4 Gross Weight Counter not decreasing

Recommended Posts

The gross weight counter below the landing gear handle is no longer decreasing in flight as fuel is burned. This was working previously in Beta 3.3

The Total Fuel Used counter is working correctly.

Worked for my right after i read your post. Are you clicking the mouse wheel after you set the gross weight?

No, but I’ll try that on my next flight. I don’t think the wheel click was necessary in Beta 3.3, but if that step is required, I shall do so going forward.

Yes it requires a start button to record the memory of the current weight. Then the current is subtracted from the burn rate and gives you the final value. So if you adjust the knob the memory turns off and the final value is blocked uintil you click start again. There is no other way around this formula without a conflict.

I confirmed that setting the initial value with a click does the trick. Thanks!
