Thank you! Your help would be much appreciated!
..Well I don´ t think so! Let me see...
With that sad and before getting into my issue back again, just let´s first of all check out my Specs and Addons installed on my computer and see if I am missing here something.
1. Mainboard:=> Intel Z370 ATX (overclocked @ 4,8 running stable, no issues so far!)
2. Grafik 2x Asus GTX 780 Cu2 in Sli Modus ( yes I know thera is better grafik cards out there than this one but for now I am happy with what I have.
3. Drive configuration: SSD Raid-0 ( 4 drives ARRAY (Raid-0 with 4x Samsung 850 pro 512 GB each.
4. FSX-Steam Edition and ALL payware addons (listed bellow) installed on a separatedPCI-E drive => Intel SSD Flash DC P3520, 1.2TB,PCI-Expres (1200GB, PCI-Express)
LINK: https://ark.intel.com/products/88722/Intel-SSD-DC-P3520-Series-1-2TB-1-2-Height-PCIe-3-0-x4-3D1-MLC-5. Payware Addons installed on my machine:
PMDG 737/800/900 & Livreries, FSX FSUIPC ver.4.955, EZdok Camera Version 2.0 , REX4 Texture Direct Steam DLC, Rex Worldwide Airports HD, GSX Base & Level 2. FSWX Wather Engine, FS Water Configurator, Navaids-Airport tools. .. and that´s it!
Back to the problem itself. BTW, I have PMDG´s 737 as well and I never had a big issue flying this aircraft or FMC problems and something like this.The problem that I am facing described on this topic concerns exclusively the Dafult Boing 737/800. Wih that sad, I am starting now from Geneva Airport (LSGG) all the way down to Zürich Airport (LSZH) flying the DEFAULT 737/800.
1) TAKE OFF:
=/= Runway heading set for now (045 degrees / Geneva´s Runway)
1.1- Speed (I´ve set 245 Knots because I will be flying from Geneva to Zürich bellow 10.000 feet)
1.2 - Altitude: (8.000 Feet set)
1.3 - Alt/speed/ (2500 feet/min set ) in order to get faster up in the air avoiding aircraft traffic near the Airoport.
1.4 - Brakes (RtO position set)
1.5 - Flaps set to 10 degrees
1.6 - Pull up @ 144 knots)
GPS Switch already set to ON /BUT the VOR LOC switch at this point is set to OFF.
2) After Taking off (..and I mean immediately after Taking off)
2.1 - Landing Gear Up
2.2 - Brakes (OFF)
3) Once in the Air
3.1 Flaps down to (0)
3.2 With (Z) Auto pilot (enabled) / AutoThrottle ( enabled), Alt/speed changed down to ( 2000 feet / min)
4.1 - With (F3) I just bring up quickly the GPS (LSZH // Zürich Activate??? (YES!) PROC =>Select Approach??? (YES!) => ILS 16 + Vectors => Load or Activate? ( Just I´ ve loaded it for now as pilots always do). At this point I have closed the GPS. I will bring it back again later on when needed. With the NAV / GPS switched to *GPS* and with VOR/LOC switch enabled my Aircraft starts to turn as it should pointing nicely to Zurich Airport RWY 16. The "COURSE Switch" is now set (154 degrees) as it must be. So, it´s time to bring the Radio Stack in order to enter some data out there.
4.2 With F2 bring up the Radios @ NAV1 I´ve entered 110.50 and I´ve activated NAV1. I have closed the Radio Stack because I won´t needed it anymore for this Flight. About 25 Miles to go: My aircraft is flying nicely to Zurich following the data entered previously into the GPS. I have a nice view of this nice country called Switzerland. Everything looks to be at its own place. Nice mountains, rivers, snow, nature pure! I am enjoying the Flight,
At this point I bring up the GPS again and I have activated " Vectors to final" in order to start descending all the way down to Zürich approaching RWY 16. I am descending down to 3.300 feet. It should be good enough in order to capture the glide slope. I have switched from MAP to APP in order to be able to see the DIAMONDS, one of them on the bottom and another one on the right side of my Flight display. The Diamond on right is very important at this point because it will allows me once switched from GPS to NAV WHICH I have done (btw, Vor/Lock still enabled at this point), it would allows me as the diamond on the right reaches the middle of the slight display to switch ON the APP switch. This action would allow me to descending precisely correct under the glide slope down to the RWY (16), because all this word not allowed would be controlled by Auto Pilot itself till he gets by the end disengaged by myself. However...I have decreased my speed down to about 180 knots at about15 miles before grounding. My landing speed at the latest stage will be about 145 Knots for this aircraft, FLAPS (full), Spoilers and Reverse enabled, Auto brakes set to (2). And ...of course I would be ready and able to disengage the autopilot and make a nice landing flare with this DEFAULT B737/800.
Again, at no point do the diamonds show up on my Flight Display but the default B738-800 aircraft just turned to the right and then flew directly into the ground. Sure It must be something wrong . .. Despite all my efforts, I can't figure out what I am doing wrong. Sorry for my possible mistakes [writing in English] , as you can see I am not a native English speaker.
