  1. Ok, I'm chalking this one up to a fluke. Just completed a full flight in an A330 MRTT variant without any issues. It's a shame it doesn't seem to work for all people and that Blackbox has a shady history, but I would dare to say that at the moment they have the best A330/A340 on the market. I'm really growing to like it.
  2. I bought the A330 in a sale quite some time ago. Decided to give it another go in P3D V2.5. I was actually pleasantly surprised. After calibrating the joystick and flying some manual circuits, everything seemed to work. Even managed a CAT3 autoland pretty well. I have not worked in an Airbus cockpit, but it looks and feels believable, though not top notch graphically. The overhead panel could use some better texturing along with some of the other cockpit areas like around the side windows etc. The main panel is quite nice with the shadowing provided by P3D. The flight model is also believable (to me). No fighter roll rates or something like that. But.... When I tried a quick flight with a flightplan set in the FMGS, it failed to make the first turn. After setting a direct for the next waypoint it went hunting for "T/P" which I'm guessing is a Turning Point, but somehow failed to fly over it every time... Deleted it from the F-Plan and finally it goes to the next waypoint. And then misses the next turn completely as well and starts hunting again... I'm hoping it's me screwing something up, and will try again later. I actually want to give them the benefit of the doubt and for me personally, the A330 and A340 models I have now are worth the price I paid, once you get some of the better repaints that get rid of the plastic look. I have no other experiences with PSS or any other part of the history of BBS, so I am trying to look at it from a neutral perspective.
  3. Got it (standard version, I don't have any use for TacPack). It's a really nice warbird indeed, and it flies lovely. Do read the manual though, if you don't get your speed right for landing you might break a nose gear or two . I do wish it had a Cold & Dark mode or something similar included, and perhaps some of the common power settings (like most A2A warbirds for example). And by that, I mean include them in the Quick Start instead of digging through the Pilot Training Manual .
  4. I don't fly on a Metroliner, but on a type with the same TPE331 engines. The SRL is what the name says, it takes the EGT from the actual sensors and converts it into a 'conditioned' EGT for display on the gauge. The main benefit is that you have a Single Red Line limit to worry about as pilot. It does not do anything to control fuel flow or enrichment (perhaps maybe 'instruct' the fuel control unit during an autostart procedure). With SRL off, the actual temperature limit will change with flight conditions, environmental variables and more. So a limit of 600C at takeoff might decrease to 580C in climb or cruise. With SRL off, the highest EGT limit is around 635C if I'm not mistaken (and that's in +50C OAT, a more reasonable +20C OAT will give you around 600C as limit). So if you are pushing the EGT to the red line without SRL, you are quite definitely overheating the engines . You can fly without SRL just fine, as long as there is a reference table somewhere in the manual to give you the correct EGT limits for the conditions (temperature, speed, RPM setting). Anyway, just thought I'd drop this in here since I was reading up on this addon myself.
  5. 1: Not seeing this issue, I'm running it in P3D V2.3 2: Yeah, it does seem a bit weird but it seems to work OK with FD and/or AP on. 3: Noticed this, but doesn't really affect the use of the plane, so no big deal to me. 4: The nose-down attitude seems to be inherent to this type. And as mentioned before, the faster you approach, the worse it is. You can happily ram it down at 100kts, flight idle and 15-20 degrees nose-down .
  6. If I'm not mistaken it's Shift+Enter for higher and Shift+Backspace for lower. Or Ctrl+Enter/Backspace, one of those two.
  7. Thanks guys, glad you like them. And for casual viewers, here are some screenshots:
  8. Ok, I think it's about done. I've uploaded it to the library, but until it's available there, you should be able to use this link to download it: http://www.mediafire.com/file/j6zjc9neaixly2z/js4100_air_new_zealand_pack.zip It's a small pack with two paints, one is the normal ANZ livery, the other the All Blacks version. The normal version is available as clean and as dirty. The All Blacks version has two options for the engine nacelles, black or white. I hope you guys can still enjoy it after a long wait!
  9. Sorry guys, I spent an uncomfortable amount of time offline due to a broken laptop and an incompetent customer support. I had the livery backed up but have not had much time to finish the rough edges Let me see if I can finish it by Tuesday.
  10. Well, I've been pretty much without a decent internet connection for the last two weeks, almost showing signs of withdrawal ;). Had a lot to catch up with today, staying in a decent hotel with internet this weekend. Next week I should have some more time and internet on my hands, so you can expect it sometime next week.
  11. Currently flying around in Sweden, and the Internet connection in the apartment here is really bad. So no upload this week unfortunately, maybe over the weekend.
  12. Yeah, it's one of the tweaks I'll try to finish tomorrow. Just a fair warning, I've got a really busy schedule this weekend, so it might be a bit later if I can't finish it tomorrow.
  13. Well, I was using the Beech 1900 as reference since it's the closest thing to the JS41, and it has white nacelles. But I can include a version with black ones as well. Just some tweaking to do, I'll probably upload it tomorrow.
  14. I just got the North Island from Orbx, and was thinking about this as well. I already have my own ANZ J41 normal livery, just started on an All Blacks version. Will post some screenies once I'm a bit further down the road. @BeaverDriver, something like this is what he means:
