    Single Engine Taxi FSL A320

    Which is kind of why I made this post also. Im not sure if FSL did something outside the sim to compensate. I know theres a number of tricks devs have been using lately.

    Single Engine Taxi FSL A320

    This wasnt so much as an "Unhappy with" but more of a "curious on what the real bus is like" sorta question. Although it seems divided on feedback from real world pilots?

    Single Engine Taxi FSL A320

    Wow interesting to hear. I figured it was P3D's awful ground physics.
  4. So quick question. Has anyone tried single engine taxi in the FSL bus? There seems to be a ridiculous amount of yaw when trying to do so that I can't keep it straight without a fairly significant amount of tiller input. (Maybe 30-50% of my total range) Is that what goes on in the real thing? I feel like if I had an engine failure on takeoff the whole thing might swap ends.

    Spot view translucent AC Textures?

    Ok - cleared shaders - problem solved! Probably should have tried that before posting!
  6. So after flying the NGX for awhile, I've decided to switch back to the FSL A320 to switch it up. I popped in to spot view quick and noticed what seems to be translucent textures. I loaded up the Aerosoft bus as well and it seems to have the same issue. The NGX however does not and renders fine. I've never seen anything like this before - any ideas? Pic below for whats happening.

    Is it worth buy FSLabs a320

    Gotcha. Hopefully they do it. That will complete total immersion when at any moment a real world failure can happen. Its nice to practice failures when you know theyll happen, but the unexpected is a diff story.

    ugh...fine. Reading more and more about the FSL bus makes me want to fire it up again! I wish I had better performance though! I could live without fs2crew I guess, I did for a long time before the FSL bus. Question - and this may need a separate post for attention, but are the failures in the FSL bus service based like the PMDG? Is this something to enable/disable? When I look over the failures page it looks like I can preconfigure stuff but are there any 'surprises' if you will?

    I guess it all comes down to what your goals are in the sim and how much its worth to you. As others said there is in depth systems on the FSL bus - but how many times will you take it to that point? I'm in the boat as ShawnG said, flying basic day to day operations gives me enough joy. I've had the PMDG 737 for years, and I've only JUST enabled service based failures. I've practiced a few things like engine failures and such maybe twice in all the years I've owned it. If you think are truly going to mess with systems and go in depth and practice failures, you wont get that from the Aerosoft bus. If you aren't going that deep - you can pick up the aerosoft bus and a copy of fs2crew for even a bit more immersion. Now this is coming from someone who owns both AC - I've been leaning towards the Aerosoft because of the FS2Crew support. The extra day to day immersion to me is worth more than system failures.
  10. I popped for the vive pro (I know, im disgusted with myself, but I do play a bunch of room scale stuff) and for FS with resolution increase certainly helps. I can actually read the PFD without much/any eye strain. Seeing the runway in the distance also looks much better. Curious on that Pimax 5k though..

    Aerosoft A320/321 Professional - available NOW

    I have them, but I've been using my GoFlight TQ6. No kidding? Brings a whole new side to "Did you turn it off and back on again". Haha - I want to use the FSL bus more as I like the sounds and feel of it a bit better. But I miss FS2Crew, but mostly - PERFORMANCE! I like to fly in VR alot and FSL just brings the sim to a crawl for that purpose. It's "ok" in regular mode but not great. Meanwhile, I fire up the NGX and I have around 50fps in 2d mode nearly everywhere vs the FSL in the 20s to 30s.

    Aerosoft A320/321 Professional - available NOW

    I actually jumped in and went for it - I didn't seem to have any issues with reverse thrust this time around. I've gotten 2 flights in and haven't had any real issues so far. Having FS2Crew and the performance increase I enjoyed this more than the FSL bus. Granted the FSL bus is supposed to be 'study level', ive had some strange issues with it. Some requiring me to shut down to a complete C&D state to clear for some reason. Not sure if this is intentional or not to simulate the 'real thing' lol.

    Aerosoft A320/321 Professional - available NOW

    I'm with others as frame rates on the FSL are certainly less than ideal. On the 737 NGX I can maintain no less than 35-40 in most populated areas where the FSl is in the 20s and sometimes less for me. Also - FS2CREW! Def considering picking this package up. I also had a reverse thrust issue which I never sorted out. Is that still the case on the latest version?

    VoxATC and Ultimate Traffic Live

    Honestly, only the traffic injection/control that vox provides. Vox is the only atc software that completely controls the traffic it injects. Not to mention I loved the 'progressive taxi' lights that vox provides. P2A is excellent, but lacks controlling the ai traffic around you, as well as the taxi lights (although I think I remember hearing its on the roadmap at some point). The dev is equally on top of all feedback and bugs. I have both and switch back and forth depending on my mood. Most times I stick with Pilot2ATC but thats just me.

    Months later and still nothing from the dev, such a shame.
