Kodiak Questions

When I open the door and it is cold outside, the temperature drops. 

quote from the dev: "the plane was made to initialize at 25oC as there are some limitations in the sim that we are trying to work around. Opening a door will change temperatures, but there is a bug that will not allow them to change if you are still on the ground."

Frankly , I couldn't care less about the AC-heating system in this aircraft. It flies great, looks good, and that is what is important to me.

It's strange...I could have sworn I had seen it drop before when opening the doors.  But now it definitely doesn't.  

I agree though...All in all, I don't care too much frankly.  The plane is excellent and I'm sure this will be ironed out soon.

True, but since this is a rather basic plane with not too much to do (not exactly study level) every little thing that DOES work as it should adds to the immersion. For me at least. I do like to set the temps etc. BTW I always set the temps to 22 while on the ground and then turn the device on: it always works. The only thing that does not work yet is the drop of temps on the ground when you open the door: that's all. Everything else works like a charm and is frequently being used by me! The more knobs and switches I can operate, the better! 😉

The temperature does drop with the door open on the ground WITH the engine running,  It dropped to 1F at KPWK right now.  (That is the correct temp outside.)

Hope this helps.

I noticed today that when starting the Kodiak from cold and dark at the ramp in Indonesia, pilots window open, the temp inside the cockpit was 28C. I turned on the AC, set it to 25C, and  as soon as I did that the temp started dropping, and soon was at 25C.  Not bad for an aircraft AC.

Started in Aniak Alaska this morning, cabin door open, temp  -1C. Took about 4 minutes for front of cabin to reach 25C. Two minutes longer for rear of cabin to reach 25c. Seems perfectly normal.
