Working Title CJ4 v0.11.0 - CHARTS, VNAV WINDOW, DATALINK...

Recommended Posts

Working Title CJ4 v0.11.0

Welcome to the Working Title CJ4 v0.11.0. In this update we introduce Charts, the VNAV Window on the MFD and enhanced datalink, along with a number of other new features, bug fixes  and full Sim Update 3 compatibility. As always, this is a beta - please report issues via our Github issues page here: https://github.com/Working-Title-MSFS-Mods/fspackages/issues. We invite you to join our discord community here: https://discord.gg/Fa6w2xK.

Get it here: https://github.com/Working-Title-MSFS-Mods/fspackages/releases/tag/cj4-v0.11.0

Installation

Installation is easy, simply copy the workingtitle-aircraft-cj4 folder inside the zip file to your MSFS Community folder.

Important: We recommend that you fully delete the previous workingtitle-aircraft-cj4 folder before copying this release.

Charts Integration

Charts in the CJ4 are powered by Navigraph - special thanks to the team at Navigraph for their support with API integration. In order to use the charts in the CJ4, you need to have a subscription that includes charts - https://navigraph.com/products/subscriptions. If you have a subscription, all you need to do is select the NAVIGRAPH line in MOD SETTINGS in the FMC and that will launch your web browser and ask you to log in to your Navigraph account - from there an access token will be issued. These tokens do time out from time-to-time, so if you're prompted by the aircraft, or if you ever encounter difficulties loading charts, please go back to this option and resync your account. Details on using the Charts capabilities are in the user guide.

Here's a video demoing the Charts functionality: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bZNqV-aCzGk

User Guide

The User Guide has been updated: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1qzxPMTSQRkvau8QOi7xUqNvjx9rbww_qHlso5AT5OnI/

Changes

PFD

  • PFD Baro preset function added. (After STD is pressed on Baro knob,, a preset value can be selected and swapped with STD press again once passed transition altitude)

MFD

  • Added support for Navigraph Charts (can be selected with CHARTS button on lower control panel).
  • Added VNAV window to FMS text (can be displayed by selecting VNAV WINDOW in the FMC DSPL MENU).
  • Added Advisory Descent (DES instead of TOD) when no arrival or approach is loaded; this will provide an advisory (uncoupled) "DES" point to start descent to reach 1500' AFE 10nm from airport.

FMC

  • Added TUNE page functionality - ATC Control page, dispatch function, format changes,
  • Added VNAV WINDOW option to DSPL MENU.
  • Datalink: Added ATIS support for IVAO.
  • Datalink: Changed default METAR source to VATSIM.
  • Datalink: Added support for facilities with separate departure and arrival ATIS.

VNAV

  • Fixed bug where in certain circumstances below constraints were not observed in the first segment of the vertical flight plan.
  • Adjusted glideslope capture to be more sensitive and only capture with less than half scale deflection.
  • Adjusted visibility of below constraints on departure to allow them to appear on the PFD and in the VNAV MFD window at a greater distance from present position.

FLIGHT MODEL

  • Flight model adjusted and enhanced based on sim update 3 aerodynamic changes.

MODEL

  • Added support for livery painters that adjust the panel.cfg file; see the REPAINT_README.MD file included in the CJ4 Docs Folder (REPAINT_README.md).

⚠️ Known Issues

  • PTCH mode will not level off at an altitude and it can have some quirky behaviors. This is currently a sim AP issue.
  • Some external applications that use the GPS/Flight plan SimVars may not function correctly or as expected when FP Sync is off.
  • Loading and saving flights can have bad results.
  • Custom liveries can render FADEC inoperative if they ship with a panel.cfg. Painters should reference the new REPAINT_README.md file included in the docs folder of the Github repository.
  • Autopilot modes cannot be triggered via key bindings or controllers and must currently be triggered in the cockpit with the mouse. External binding applications are adding support for LVars and HEvents. Used SimVars are documented here
  • Sometimes a heading to altitude instruction on takeoff will display further than the first RNAV fix on an RNAV departure procedure; in these cases the workaround is to cross-check the DP chart and remove the erroneous waypoint either by deleting the heading to altitude fix or dropping the first RNAV fix onto the magenta line in the LEGS page.
  • Due to sim autopilot bank rate limitations, the aircraft may overshoot on certain RNP approaches with tight turns. If you encounter this, we recommend hand flying the approach with the given lateral and vertical guidance.
  • The Standby Attitude Indicator switch is reversed in the model, so down (off) turns the SAI on and vice-versa; this will be addressed in a future update.

Just tried the latest with the previous CJ4 WT and it ran beautifully! The taxiing has been fixed in MSFS and it rolls realistically and thrust is proper on snow. Amazing stuff even before this update!

Excellent, good job!!

Loved the charts feature, used in my last flight and it works perfectly.

I have a question, is there a way to see the pressurization status in this plane, like the press rate, cabin climb, or it isn't moddeled yet? In a positive case, would be nice to see its modelled, since it's a checklist procedure to keep following the pressurization as long as the plane climbs or decent.

Thank you for your good work!

Hmmm, this one doesn't seem to be working for me...switched to the previous version which continues to work great.

That's why I wasn't bothering with recent BIG announcements nor the latest update because I knew you guys would simply deliver! Can't wait to try the charts feature. Thanks a ton!
