Malibu with configurable failures

Recommended Posts

I just uploaded a version of the Sahara aircraft that simulates certain failures. It uses a DLL and a configration file to accomplish this. You can set components to fail during the takeoff roll, the intial climb, or the final approach. Or you can give it a mean time between failures number in which case it will randomly fail within that average period.It has a readme file containing the installation instruction and a short document describing the panel changes and how to set the configuration file. As I say in the document it is meant for system dweebs like me. If you just want to fly from place to place the base Sahara is what you want. Harry Gentilozzi

Thanks Tony. Shame on me because I have been reading this forum since FLY first came out. After consuming everybody elses great work I feel like I owed something.I really enjoy this sim. I know its getting old but I can't seem to switch back to MSFS even though I buy every new version of it including 2004. Its the old dog new trick problem. Harry Gentilozzi

Harry.WOW!Thats an impressive list.I'm looking forward to test it.That's one of the things I have missed in Fly.Can it be used for all Fly aircrafts and helicopters?Or have you plans on doing the rest of them?Thanks for your contribution.Take careJan

JanIt only works with the Sahara but it would be easy to adapt to the other aircraft. I want to see how this works on other peoples machines before I take it any farther. I will upload the source code for the DLL when I am done. Harry
