  1. it can be fixed. it is only when you fly in hard snow area and it is only certain time of year. is is not wheelspary but engine wash spray http://aussiex.org/forum/index.php?/files/file/1572-remove-engine-snow-wash-effect-20-ft-below-plane/ other good effect changes: http://aussiex.org/forum/index.php?/files/file/1571-removed-clumps-from-wheelsnow-spray-effects-file/ http://aussiex.org/forum/index.php?/files/file/1556-removed-clumps-from-dust-effects-file/
  2. thank you kindly for sharing your spreadsheet
  3. Yes indeed, It now include the WHOLE WORLD.! see timm-hh post for details
  4. Well thanks for the info. Downloaded the latest trainer installation file, (Do NOT INSTALL as ver 5 is not working with flight1 GTN750/650), extracted the data from the exe file, added to the garmin files, and whalla, all working..! all updated, and I have terrain data for "WHOLE WORLD". It really is a bummer for those that bought the trainer CD though to get the terrain data, as that data is now basically available for free..! absolute awesome now..!
  5. the instructions are in post 3 and 6 of this thread. just go back one page
  6. Thank you sooo much..! I really appreciate this fix. I really dont mind setting all sounds to "OFF" as long as old betty is no longer screaming at me.
  7. I just love this new GNS 750, but because I am flying helicopter the TAWS alerts is driving me nuts. How do I switch it off. ? Any help much appreciated.
  8. After approval of original developer. you can get the files here. see instructions on top. i do not do support for these. http://www.mediafire.com/download/yh1cokpdyd8ydkh/172Things4.CAB http://www.mediafire.com/download/5v7dgc7ht3ob5c7/172Things5.cab
  9. yes it is normal. I rarely get the "warning" bell for low power, but then again me and you might fly it differently.
  10. or if it really bug you just change the parameter in the gauge to 20% or 30% or whatever you like.. now that is if you dont mind that this to be authentic. you can also remove the sound completely. If you want to do one of the above proposals and you dont know how, send me PM
  11. Even better Even better news..! maybe the two values were swopped around accidentally. We only concentrated on the 2nd last value and never actually did anything to the last value, because everybody was only complaining about the gear down, but now that you mention gear UP is 163, this bring up a total new question it is very funny that carenado did have a 163, but I think they just have had it in the wrong place.. This is just too much of a co-incidence you mentioning 163 and they had a 163, that we substituted with 182, to get FSX to work correctly with speeds for dropping GEAR down. I will test a bit more. Just re-read the FSX SDK. There is no value that can be maintained for GEAR UP. Only for gear DOWN (extention) Contact Point Parameter (and example) Element Description 1 (1) Class Integer defining the type of contact point: 0 = None, 1 = Wheel, 2 = Scrape, 3 = Skid, 4 = Float, 5 = Water Rudder 2 (-18.0) Longitudinal Position The longitudinal distance of the point from the datum reference point. 3 (0) Lateral Position The lateral distance of the point from the datum reference point. 4 (-3.35) Vertical Position The vertical distance of the point from the datum reference point. 5 (3200) Impact Damage Threshold The speed at which an impact with the ground can cause damage (feet/min). 6 (0) Brake Map Defines which brake input drives the brake (wheels only). 0 = None, 1 = Left Brake, 2 = Right Brake. 7 (0.50) Wheel Radius Radius of the wheel (feet). 8 (180) Steering Angle The maximum angle (positive and negative) that a wheel can pivot (degrees). 9 (0.25) Static Compression This is the distance a landing gear is compressed when the empty aircraft is at rest on the ground (feet). This term defines the “strength” of the strut, where a smaller number will increase the “stiffness” of the strut. 10 (2.5) Ratio of Maximum Compression to Static Compression Ratio of the max dynamic compression available in the strut to the static value. Can be useful in coordinating the “compression” of the strut when landing. 11 (0.90) Damping Ratio This ratio describes how well the ground reaction oscillations are damped. A value of 1.0 is considered critically damped, meaning there will be little or no osciallation. A damping ratio of 0.0 is considered undamped, meaning that the oscillations will continue with a constant magnitude. Negative values result in an unstable ground handling situation, and values greater than 1.0 might also cause instabilities by being “over” damped. Typical values range from 0.6 to 0.95. 12 (1.0) Extension Time The amount of time it takes the landing gear to fully extend under normal conditions (seconds). A value of zero indicates a fixed gear. 13 (4.0) Retraction Time The amount of time it takes the landing gear to fully retract under normal conditions (seconds). A value of zero indicates a fixed gear. 14 (0) Sound Type This integer value will map a point to a type of sound: [color=#ff0000]15 (0) Airspeed Limit This is the speed at which landing gear extension becomes inhibited (knots). Not used for scrape points or non-retractable gear.[/color] 16 (200) Damage from Airspeed The speed above which the landing gear accrues damage (knots). Not used for scrape points or non-retractable gear. from this I then gather that last two values need to be 182 and 182
  12. Sorry for answering now but I have completly missed this question. It is because your settings in FSX allow this. under realism, check to see that "aircraft stress causes damage" is ticked then the limit will be used as set in aircraft fsx that is 179 I think from my head. I have to check. Many people also ask the opposite question, why cant the put down the wheels at 170 (the published limit is 182). In these cases the "aircraft stress" tick was ON, and FSX refused the gear to go down, unless the plane is below 163. The aircraft.cfg limit I know is wrong. So the people kept the tick "on" but actaully had to correct the aircraft.cfg value. I have to find the post but it is here somewhere under C90 or B200 sub forums. here is the correct values The value per carenado is set to point.0 = 1, 13.0, 0.0, -5.75, 1600, 0, 1.4, 40, 0.45, 1.60, 0.4, 3.0, 4.0, 0, 163, 182 point.1 = 1, -2.0, -8.7, -5.50, 1600, 1, 1.3, 0, 0.45, 1.50, 0.9, 6.5, 7.0, 2, 163, 182 point.2 = 1, -2.0, 8.7, -5.50, 1600, 2, 1.3, 0, 0.45, 1.50, 0.9, 6.5, 7.0, 3, 163, 182 the second last value must be 182, like below point.0 = 1, 13.0, 0.0, -5.75, 1600, 0, 1.4, 40, 0.45, 1.60, 0.4, 3.0, 4.0, 0, 182, 182 point.1 = 1, -2.0, -8.7, -5.50, 1600, 1, 1.3, 0, 0.45, 1.50, 0.9, 6.5, 7.0, 2, 182, 182 point.2 = 1, -2.0, 8.7, -5.50, 1600, 2, 1.3, 0, 0.45, 1.50, 0.9, 6.5, 7.0, 3, 182, 182 http://forum.avsim.net/topic/392069-landing-gear-extension/
