    4.5 hot fix is out

    Hehe.... and quite a few more, afterwards !
  2. Definitely seeing more aliasing with same settings as before. Need to increase from 4xSSAA to 8x to smooth out jaggies and shimmerJust me ?

    And what's the betting, that P3D v5 (which will no doubt cost), will inherit all these issues ? I get the feeling P3D is going the same way as Windows 10 ... fix one thing, break two others. Hmmm.... time will tell.

    P3D at night is way too bright

    ....... And still very relevant as P3D is still rendering 8 bit color.

    https://1drv.ms/u/s!AlTIEjrYOEqigrFY7dMfD_PH4zlnQw And this for climb at 82%. There are only 2 settings for prop speed, and the 72 and 42 500 both have the same engines. And finally - I almost predict what you are you gonna say now - these are from Limitation charts, not performance.... and yes I can read graphs - oh believe me !

    Performance limitations of the ATR x-500 engines states.... 1. "100% Prop speed (at TO setting in the notch) = max of 90% TQ" And .... THIS SHOULD ONLY BE USED FOR 5 MINS MAX. 2. The MCT setting should only be used if engine out occurs. In climb, (CL in auto and CLB set, the NP (i.e. prop speed) goes to c 82% (that means circa) ... and the TQ max is 97%. 3. Using a torque above this, is only used at high altitude or temperatures, (as in the video with the sloping runway !!! Yes, the one you clearly haven't watched... as you don't need to as you gave all the answers). As for arrogance, OMG..... 'My' arrogance ? I have shown you videos of different SOPs, but you deny these exist. I have shown you ATR manuals that explain that normal takoffs are derated, with higher TQs reserved for high temps and altitudes, or engine outs. It is your refusal to read, learn and understand, that is arrogant - like Trump, who knows better than scientists AND the CIA, yet has never read a book since college (self admitted). THAT'S arrogance. I am unsubscribing from this post as there is no reasoning with unreasonable people. Goodbye, farewell and enjoy the new 1.1 update - the lights still don't work properly !

    https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.theairlinepilots.com/forumarchive/membersupload/Performance_Manual_-_ATR.pdf&ved=2ahUKEwjd3s2UlO7hAhX2SxUIHdZOBPQQFjAAegQIBxAB&usg=AOvVaw0xF8kk9nuWde_zQyC0WxD0 Read it and weep. Official info from ATR. Max takeoff is 104, usual and preferred is around 89% Climb out is around mid 80s. High alt, uphill, as in one of my above video links, max out to ramp, at around 108. Carenado have actually modelled it correctly. Oh dear. I've known so many....... blah.

    Wrong on 2 and 3. And FADEC, no but I corrected it to Performance management which is the same sort of thing. You are splitting hairs. Take off is only at the red line if you are at high altitude or on short runway. Go and watch the videos before you pontificate. I bet you havem't watched one of them. I'm off to lie down.

    For the love of mike, watch the RW videos instead of thinking you know it all. And spell correctly, if you want to be taken seriously.
  11. Yes it does work, but looks pretty last decade. A good was n brush up is all that is needed. I hope they don't over the top and cripple performance.
  12. So looking forward to this, The Embraer is THE most automated plane ever. From 400ft AGL to turning off the runway at the destination, only needs about 6 button presses. Great if you are feeling lazy !

    To be fair guys, I have seen videos and read about different SOPs (sorry !), which suggest that CLs to Auto or 100% override, is acceptable. Also, PLs on takeoff and climb out, are again, optional. It may depend on conditions of course. One video showed takeoff on a very steep runway, at altitude, and they rammed both CL and PLs to max. I agree with 46Pilot though, that under "normal" conditions.... CLs and PLs should be in Auto / Notch respectively, and the PM control switch will then auto adjust RPM and thus torque, giving around 100% on takeoff, and around 80 to 89% torque for climb and cruise. If the PLs are NOT in the Notch, the PM dial (with TO, MCT, CLB etc options) simply will NOT have any effect. So, if you prefer, you can simply set the throttles manually to 100% or 89% yourself, and ignore the PM controller, or Notch the levers, and use the PM controller to change thrust automatically. It really makes no difference. The PLs should only be taken out of the notch, for descent, approach, TOGA or single engine. Of course extreme conditions where max power is needed, is another matter where max power is the safest strategy. (I have arrived at these conclusions after watching dozens of RW video of 42s and 72s, and have read manuals from both flightsim ATRs (including the old 'Flight1 ATR' for FS2004 which I had to install get !) .... and RW guides, manuals and company SOPs.) P.S interestingly, I have been reading up on the SAAB s340, and here, you manually adjust to ensure you max thrust, but only to maintain temperatures in the 850 and 875 C range, below and above (respectively) 15000ft ! So, they are similar free turbine engines, but the approach to flying them differs.

    I was referring to the lack of reponse reported by 46Pilot. With the world looking - on Facebook - he gets a reply, but an email is ignored. Make what you will, of that. I wouldn't waste my time to be honest. I've known Carenado for 10 years.

    BTW, I notice that the VNAV function actually works in the Carenado SAB.... anyone got it to work in the ATR ?
