    Well finally after many attempts of making custom schedules I've managed to make one that actually works! Atlanta is still really busy and it can be quite tasking to make sure you don't forget an aircraft sometimes, but there are more quiet periods than usual. Should be a bit more playable for those playing alone who found a normal day overwhelming (me!). The days schedule can be played throughout the whole day though some aircraft may not show due to limited gate space, however, hour files have been included in 3 hour blocks for those who do want it busy! Most Real Color's will be needed to get some of the latest liveries but it should still hopefully work fine if it does not. Let me know if anyone has any problems I will try get to them as quick as I can. Any feedback Positive and Constructive are welcome! KATL - Champs8507 - Autumn - 2020.zip

    I've got WebSockets working. Here's a quick video of real time updates every 100ms. https://youtu.be/E6RR94O8nfs This is the JavaScript for this page: var fsuipcURL = "ws://"; var ws; function btnConnectClick(e) { if (!ws) { // create a new WebSocket using the URL with the 'fsuipc' protocol. ws = new WebSocket(fsuipcURL, "fsuipc"); ws.onopen = function () { alert("Socket Open..."); }; ws.onmessage = function (evt) { // Find out which request was responded to and process it var response = JSON.parse(evt.data); switch (response.name) { case 'info': showInfo(response); break; case 'offsetsTest': showOffsetData(response); break; } }; ws.onclose = function () { // websocket is closed. alert("Connection is closed..."); ws = null; }; } } function btnInfoClick(e) { // make a request to the sever for info. request = { request: 'info', name: 'info' }; if (ws) { ws.send(JSON.stringify(request)); } } function btnReadOffsetsClick(e) { // make a request to the sever to read offset data // First setup a data structure containing the offset requests // This contains an array of ofset objects. Each object contains: // name: used to identify the value when the response comes back (can be anything) // address: Hexadecimal address of the offset // type: the type of data in the offset. Must be: // 'int' (signed integer) // 'uint' (unsigned integer) // 'string' // 'float' // size: The size of the offset in bytes request = { request: 'offsets.read', // Tell the server to read offsets name: 'offsetsTest', // An ID so we can match the response interval: 100, // Send every 100ms - specfiy 0 for read once (no repeat). offsets: [ { name: 'altitude', address: '0570', type: 'int', size: 8 }, { name: 'avionicsMaster', address: '2E80', type: 'uint', size: 4 }, { name: 'heading', address: '0580', type: 'uint', size: 4 }, { name: 'aircraftName', address: '3D00', type: 'string', size: 256 }, ] }; if (ws) { ws.send(JSON.stringify(request)); } } function showInfo(response) { if (response.success) { var data = response.data; // Create a table to display the data displayHTML = '<table>'; // enumerate each returned data item and add as a row to the table for (var propertyName in data) { displayHTML += '<tr>'; displayHTML += '<td>' + propertyName + '</td><td>' + data[propertyName] + '</td>'; displayHTML += '</tr>'; } displayHTML += "</table>"; } else { displayHTML = "Request failed with error code: " + response.errorCode + "&nbsp;" + response.errorMessage; } document.getElementById('fsuipcInfo').innerHTML = displayHTML; } function showOffsetData(response) { // clear error display document.getElementById('fsuipcReadOffsets').innerHTML = ''; var displayHTML = ""; if (response.success) { var data = response.data; // display each offset value on the page document.getElementById('aircraftName').innerText = data['aircraftName']; document.getElementById('avionicsMaster').innerText = data['avionicsMaster'] > 0 ? 'ON' : 'OFF'; // convert heading from FS units to degrees var headingDegrees = data['heading'] * 360 / (65536 * 65536); document.getElementById('headingTrue').innerText = headingDegrees.toFixed(0); // convert altitude metres to feet var altitudeFeet = data['altitude'] / (65535 * 65535) * 3.28084; document.getElementById('altitude').innerText = altitudeFeet.toFixed(0); } else { displayHTML = "Request failed with error code: " + response.errorCode + "&nbsp;" + response.errorMessage; } // set any error HTML into the div document.getElementById('fsuipcReadOffsets').innerHTML = displayHTML; } Is that more like what you had in mind? If so, I'll get it to a stable version with offset read and write so you can test it. Let me know if you have any other comments or suggestions. Paul

    For me SP2 has been a big and unexpected improvement in takeoff dynamics, though still not totally smooth. For those still having takeoff issues it would be interesting to have more information on the circumstances at the time. The following things all have an affect on aircraft behaviour. Takeoff weight Flap setting Trim setting Rrotate speed used Initial climb speed set on AT Are you relying on the Flight Director for pitch attitude What controller is being used I base my own procedure on some advice an Ejet pilot gave on this forum in the past, plus what I had been taught many years ago. 'At Vr rotate smoothly, over 2 or 3 seconds, to get the aircraft into a climbout attitude. This will usually be about 16 to 17 degrees up, on the Attitude Indicator. Just before reaching this attitude, expect to push forward slightly to avoid over pitching. Don't chase the Flight Director. Select Gear Up and reduce nose up trim by about 0.5 to keep controls in trim. This should allow the AT to maintain climbout speed, typically V2 plus 10, until AP is selected.

    Yes, but as noted above, no need for calling cmd.exe, calling start shell:AppsFolder\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe!App -FastLaunch is sufficient.

    This is the incident I mentioned that happened over a year ago. At that time (until today) there has been no rebranding. Changing the name of a damaged brand is an often used marketing strategy. It is quite possible that Boeing will make such a move. However, just because an airline dispenses with the word MAX in its press release or another has the name changed on a few aircraft does not mean that a rebranding has taken place. There is no large-scale re-labelling of all the jets and no official statement from Boeing that I know of. I'm not saying that it won't happen, but until it does, I agree with @crbascott that there should be no announcement that a rebranding has been done. An official source that confirms such a rebranding could not be referred to in this thread so far.

    Matty, I flew the following approaches-- KPDX -- ILS 28L -- Not an actual CAT II or CAT III approach. I disconnected the autopilot at about 80 feet and landed smoothly (-165 feet/min as reported on SmartCARS). This is a typical landing rate for me when hand-flying the aircraft to touchdown. KGEG -- ILS 21 -- Flew the published CAT II/CAT III approach. Visibility was very bad, and there was a lot of turbulence, which I thought may have been a factor in the poor landing. I let the autopilot fly to touchdown and rollout (-605 feet/min). KSTL -- ILS 12L -- Flew the published CAT II/CAT III approach in very nice weather--no turbulence and 10+ mile visibility. I let the autopilot fly to touchdown and rollout (-567 feet/min). Since I could see the runway from miles out, I could see that there was little if any flare prior to touchdown. In all of these landings I followed the instructions on pages 56 and 57 of the user's manual, and in all cases I got all of the expected indications on the instrument panel (this is not a new aircraft for me, but in the past I was using the e-Jets V2). I am using P3D V4.5. Actually, as I hope I made clear in my earlier post, I am very pleased with the SP2 release. It is a pleasure to fly, I think it is a better model than the old V2 E-175, and while I think I have identified a few minor bugs, there are workarounds for everything. The autoland workaround, for me, is to either fly a proper CAT II approach (disconnect the autopilot at CAT II minimums for the approach), or fly to my alternate airport. Let me know what you think. Sincerely, Chuck Adams

    Pushback left/right are behaving in the opposite way of how theywere previously working - this has been reported to Asobo. For the time being, I will swap the controls sent so that previous functionality is maintained. Could you try the attached build please: FSUIPC7.exe

    Hi Paul , was just reading up on your offset.GetValue example in your advanced tutorial section , but it did not compute , until now... ! I got the swithces to work with datatables , but this is more elegant ! Great ! best regard , Peter

    It seems to be more of a rumour than anything. https://onemileatatime.com/boeing-737-8/ Boeing website still has max all over it.

    I'll update to handle the change in values - I'll post a version to test sometime tomorrow.

    I've flown the V3 SP2 E-175 for 6 flights, and I really like it. Most of the issues that I listed in my earlier posts have been addressed, and now this aircraft is fun to fly. I am flying on P3D V4.5, and I still have some issues, but they are minor. Here they are: 1. The TOGA click spot is not there in my world. I can use control + shift + G; not a big problem. 2. The autobrake control did not work, then it did work, then it didn't. Then I installed a Feel There livery and it works again. Go figure. I know the work-around for this issue as well. 3. When I fly a new aircraft, I like to evaluate the auto-land capability (if it has one), in case I ever have to use it. The fully automated landing capability (as described beginning p. 56 of the manual) is not too useful. I had landing rates of -620 and -580 feet/second, and the aircraft really did not flare before touchdown (although I did get the ALIGN and FLARE indications). No problem--this is a CAT II (i.e., disconnect at published CAT II approach minimums and either land or go around) aircraft for me. 4. After parking at the gate and turning off engines, at some airports I get the GPU available indication. However, I am unable to select IN USE. Again, not a big problem. And that's all that I have noticed. So I appreciate the work that went into SP2, and I will enjoy flying this aircraft. Sincerely, Chuck Adams

    Yeah I was thinking about that. Probably the best thing is to make it an option on the request. That way the user can decide if they want to check which values are present or not. It would also be a good way of knowing which values have changed. Some applications like flight recorders are mainly based on logging values changing. You would need to test for the change anyway so checking for the value to be present in the return message would be no less inconvenient. For people writing gauge type applications, they just wouldn't enable the option and get all value from the request back all the time (if at least one has changed). Paul

    That's a good idea. I'll put that in. Yes, you can set up multiple read requests each with their own interval. I think this is useful as not all information would need to be read at the same rate. It also makes sense to split the offsets up into logical groups, e.g. lights, engines etc. especially if the request only sends data if one of the offsets has changed. I'll be adding an 'offset.stop' so you can stop the request if you don't need it anymore. Paul

    Unfortunately, as Seattle and Frankfurt suggests, if the airport is not complete when modelling starts the new additions will not be included. I doubt Feel There will wait over 6 months to start the modelling, when they have already announced the airport

    So until Gabor fixes the RT at next release just find and replace FAJS with FAOR in the faor_gaandlocaltraffic.txt file for those that feel confident to do it?

    Hi, you can do this by increasing the max calibrated value manually in the FSUIPC7.ini file, i.e. to reduce the max deflection of Aileron the line in the INI file would show Aileron=-16380,-512,512,16380 modified to reduce the max deflection to both sides, can be as well different in either direction, would look like this Aileron=-20200,-512,512,20200 Those modified numbers will as well show up on Calibration panel. Of course when you use again the Set button to calibrate the Min/ Max positions it is used again the normal Mi/ Max value +-16380. You can adjust as well those values when the FS is running by changing the INI file and when going into Calibration tab first using the "Reload all settings" button that will reload the settings from the INI file. By the pressing the OK button the changed INI file settings will be used, With full Joystick deflection to the modified side Thomas

    Hi, please I need your help. I installed need for speed the run on my core i3 laptop, windows 10, but after installation I tried playing the game but it keep loading forever. Please what am I gonna do.

    well its official the Boeing 737 Max-8 737 Max-9 737 Max-10 and the 737 Max-7 are all being rebranded these aircraft will just have the Max taken out of the name and will be 737 -7 737-8 737-9 and 737-10 just thought that everyone should know about this not sure yet if that FeelThere or Nyerges Design know yet or not but it is on the Boeing.com website that these aircraft are being rebranded so not sure how that is going to change the ICAO and IATA codes for the planes will be interesting to see though.

    also enter air has ordered two of the newly rebranded max jets they have bought the 737-8 which is what it will be called now with the max in the name of the aircraft.
