Can you open doors and windows?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I haven’t seen anyone open a door or a window in the GA stuff yet. Is it possible?

It'll be ready for sure till release day, maybe even the engine cowlings can be opened....

We don't know if it will be possible in the release version.  Apparently it was possible at one point in the Alpha.

Pretty sure you could open doors and windows in the default aircraft in FSX. I’ll be surprised if we can’t at release

At this point, nothing would surprise me. 😄 

(Except maybe my house being the right color in the sim.)

Sorry if this has been covered but to those who have the release version are you able to open/close the aircraft doors?  Very basic function, just asking.

On your own? No.

The doors of airliners do open though when you call catering trucks or airport gates. They’re just animation and not something user controlled.

Yet.

All of the key_events exist, but the animation token variables (A:door0,bool) etc. have been deprecated.

It's coming, but not regarded as a priority fix.

Just make a clicking noise to pretend you are unlatching it, if you are making an emergency landing. 🤣

This is a basic feature that will improve immersion for a lot of people and needs to be included, even for default aircraft. You could open the doors and windows on default fsx a/c, would be an odd omission for me

These type actions are reserved for 3rd parties to include as MS considers this action to be only in advanced system models. After all if you were flying a real airplane you would never open or close the door, you just hop right thru the side of the plane. This has been tested by real pilots.😂

In the most recent question & answer session that question came up, and the developers said that it hardly came up in the forums they read, so they aren't going to implement it.

Although the A320's doors open for services.

No one here knew and it was occasionally discussed on the Beta forum.  Maybe those discussions got filtered out between the time they happened and the time the synopsis of the forum was delivered to the developers.

We won't talk about the tree issue... 😄
