G36 Improvement Project

Recommended Posts

Thanks @mikegrr

I'm really enjoying developing in MSFS and want to push to model as many systems as I can, from deeper engine logic like spark fouling to a complete electrical system.

Call for interest!

Hey all, I was chatting to a friend the other day about organising a Bonanza Improvement Mod Multiplayer flight and wondered what the interest might be?

I was thinking something on a weekend and at a time that works for both US and EU time zones, perhaps something in the region 1900 UTC which would be 1400 EST / 1100 PST.

Perhaps lasting around an hour or so flying between two interesting locations and checking out things as we go.

We would host the event on our Simulated.Flights Discord with the ability of people to use voice or text chat to communicate.

Who’s In? Thoughts? Ideas?

We are a great community and it would be awesome to get together with a few of you.

I would love to do this.  I am struggling with my internet speed at the moment to even load the ground tiles quickly enough, but I will look into it.  I have never done online at all yet! 
I was looking at joining Two Tone Murphy at some stage, as he does some good tours - he has had the sky full of planes at times.

I bet Overkill on YouTube would be interested.  He is a fairly well known MSFS content creator, and really rates you mod. 
I was watching his flight into the new Martha's Vineyard addon last night using your excellent G36 mod.

Hi All

I am pleased to announce the release of 0.6.7 of the Improvement Project compatible with Sim Update 8 🙂

https://flightsim.to/file/21221/bonanza-g36-improvement-project

New in this version:

  • Added functionality to Hangar Module (we now save engine hours, miles flown, and count down to annual and 100hr service per livery) state saving items are shown on the State page (menu link at top)
  • Fixed missing altitude alert tone @200ft to go
  • Tweaked fuel flow as current flow slightly less than book figures (Rpt by @JayDee6281)
  • Fixed missing decimal point to manifold pressure gauge
  • Added SU8 Prop Modelling - This has changed the speeds/fuel flows it may take a little while to dial this in. At the moment the climb fuel flow is slightly lower than book and cruise is about there.

P.S. I’ve just noticed a bug has creeped in with the total hours in the hangar panel which I thought I had fixed. I will release a small bugfix in the next few days.

Hi All

I am pleased to announce the release of 0.6.8 of the Improvement Project compatible with Sim Update 9 🙂

https://flightsim.to/file/21221/bonanza-g36-improvement-project

New in this version:

  • After the addition of the Asobo prop modelling physics and the new CFD simulation the performance figures were well off, these have now been fixed and are as close as I can get them to the POH figures. We are at most 2/3knts TAS out from our testing and within a sing gph or less for fuel burn.

 

Fair winds

This is an amazing mod @CaptMatto - thanks so much for making it!

I often find this aircraft more tempting than payware, and fly it a lot!

Heard very good things about Matto's work and he updates a lot more often. Robert haven't updated in over 7 months now. So I'd definitely go for Matto's.

Robert has simulated an aftermarket modified aircraft with turbo-normalisation, i.e. the engine behaves like it's at sea level until quite high up. You set the mixture and forget it effectively.

The Improvement Project retains the original naturally aspirated engine as it left the factory. It has many system improvements (e.g. automatic bus ties, air-conditioning engine load, spark plug fouling) and G1000 NXI integration that Robert hasn't done.

Both mods have refined the flight dynamics, in the case of the Improvement Project it's utilising the new CFD. Robert hasn't updated his mod since those became available.

You can have both installed at once, Robert's overwrites the default G36 but the Improvement Project adds a new aircraft in the selection list.
