  1. FMC position update upon TO/GA selection based on runway threshold + RWY REMAIN setting in FMC when no other navigation available is missing in PMDG 737NGX and the MD-11. I have not yet tested 777 as I do not own it. Tricky thing is that the FMC provides the option to set this but it's just cosmetic as it does nothing.

    SE Alaska RNP/RNAV Procedrues

    Wonderful stuff. The RNP bug caught you. I remember a year ago when I spent many nights until 6 AM searching for any small piece of chart and data I could find for the ZUNZ Naverus RNP approach to fill in the puzzle to be able to create them. I ended up with only a folder full of files and me waiting for the RF legs to be implemented by PMDG. You went one step farther. Well done!PS. I just finished a 5 day course on ARINC 424 format and it would be wonderful if PMDG would end up using that format of writing the procedures alternative to the present one. Pretty cool stuff being able to have a simulator to run your ARINC424 files before publishing them in real life, right at home.

    PMDG 737NGX Livery Availability

    +1 for Tarom (can be either -800 or -700)

    NGX bird strike question

    Sure. Cracked glass is a cosmetic effect. But what the original poster mostly asked (for which he received a lot of flak) was the randomicity of bird ingestion that creates some kind of system failure.

    PMDG 737 NGX liveries

    We'd really enjoy a Romanian TAROM made by PMDG themselves (-700 / -800):
  6. Hmm. That isn't right. If you had 310 the next step should be 330. The rule in most countries (mostly except those that have a strong North-South airway orientation) is Eastbound ODD, Westbound EVEN. So you would fly FL310 only if you were flying From the westcoast to the eastcoast for example. Also note (since B744 is a long hauler) when flying on NATs (North Atlantic Tracks) those actually are one directional and occupy Flight Levels. So over the ocean you would use 1000 feet step climbs (if ATC would be able to approve it due to traffic).Anyway, can you try the flight again starting with FL330 now? It might have been a one time thing. I remember clearly using RVSM step climbs on eastbound flights too.PS. Sorry I hadn't read your full post before replying.
  7. It is on the Performance Initialization page (PERF INIT) in preflight setup and there at LSK 5R: STEP: ICAO. Change that to STEP: 2000.
  8. Bryan--Yup, it's ok. It's great. The list has given me ideas for some new routes. --eric
  9. Wow, great list. That's everything one could wish for - now how many mouse clicks do to I have to do when doing my regular run to Zurich. Oh, just 71 :)Thanks a lot, and good luck on the FS X version,FS X up to now is awsome - try the glider ;)--eric

    PMDG 747-400 TCAS and VATSIM

    Greetings Paul,Please go to the PMDG menu on top of FS (by pressing the ALT key). Select OPTIONS and there select the TCAS traffic inject from FSUIPC. That should have your traffic showing. Let me know if it doesn't.--eric -----Romanian vACC on VATSIMwww.rovacc.org
  11. I'm restating the airline and destinations with some modification:Destination:Otopeni Henri Coanda Airport at Bucharest, Romania (it seems that the B744 DOES operate here)Budapest Ferihegy Airport at Bucapest, HungaryBen Gurion at Tel Aviv, IsraelIstanbul Ataturk at Istanbul, TurkeyAirlines: (some may allready be in the list, I might have missed them)ElalTAROM (Romanian Air Transport) - even if it doesn't operate B744 (unless you wish to keep fully realistic here)Delta (I think it allready is)--eric

    747 FD commanded speed

    Salutari Cristi,The the speed should jump from the set V2 in the MCP to 250 knots (or greater depending on your weight - minimum clean speed). Confirm that 170 IAS is your calculated V2 (or V2 +10) and that the TAKEOFF, THR LIMIT and VNAV pages in the FMC are set corectly. If this happens on every flight please try to follow TRC lesson 1 and 2 to the letter and if it works see what's diferent in your preflight and change accordingly. Have fun,Eric Bocaneanu---RO-vACC 1www.rovacc.org
  13. Obviously:Airline: TAROM (Romanian Air Transport)City: Bucharest, Romania (Henry Coanda - Otopeni Airport).Or, disregard: TAROM doesn't operate the B744 and no B744 operates into Bucharest. Let's just see Ben Gurion airport.--eric
  14. Hey Ori,You are corect. In the real airplane, the controls being actuated via the hydraulics you would feel bumps or weird things in the controls themselfs. You would also setup the lower EICAS display to the STAT page (in FS2Crew the FO does it for you) and check the range of movement on that display as well. You would check the airlerons: move the stick fully to the left then fully to the right. Note the ailerons moving and the spoilers on one side. Check the elevator movement: fully back and fully forward. then check the rudder: one peddal down then the other. Full fast movements recomended to be able to feel rudder bumps if they appear.Have fun flying,--eric
  15. Quote: Weird nobody said anything about the music. Works great on the video. So, the music is GREAT with the video :)Thanks for answer the other post. --ericPS. any prizes for the guesser? like an empty bottle of coke?
