After the purchase through Steam, the DLC Embraer EJets 175 195 https://store.steampowered.com/app/364324/FSX_Steam_Edition__Embraer_EJets_175__195_AddOn/ I have a pleasure to fly these amazing regional jets.
There is a problem thought. For some reason, capturing localizer is not working when I do a vector approach. The only one case, when autopilot captures a localizer and glideslope - is when following strictly the defined FMS flightplan. In my flights, I prefer as much realizm as possible, that's why mostly I do vector approaches, following ATC guidance and than capturing the localizer vs glideslope on final. I've checked different manual documents, tried turning on NAV and / or APP when on final. But the airplane is not capable to capture and follow localizer unless it is flying all the flightplan waypoints.
The problem description in a few words:
During the landing phase, in case of a vector approach, the airplane fails to capture the localizer and glideslope making it impossible to land.
At the moment I see only two ways to land:
1) Completely manual landing, without autopilot engaged - not realistic scenario,
2) Strictly following all the flightplan waypoints, without traffic controller - not realistic scenario.
When capturing the localizer during vector approach with ATC (traffic control) guidance - the PREV mode is turned ON, ILS frequency - set on MCDU, landing runway course - set accordingly. The loc ils markers are shown correctly on the PFD, however it fails to capture the LOC and GS, just passing through.
Could you please take a look at this problem? Maybe I'm missing something? As I said, the documentation was checked, different configurations were used ( PREV, APP on, ILS heading and frequency set for both sides, NAV1 and NAV2) to attempt vector approach, but never succeed.
The most disgusting thing is that I've spend hundreds of hours for learning documentation, flight tutorial videos and introduction flights but the airplane model appears to have critical glitches (((
Please, take a look at the attached screen captures. It looks like the co-pilot PFD is showing something related to the localizer, but the approach mode is never engaged, the airplane is just passing through the localizer ignoring it entirely.
AUTOLAND is enabled in the MCDU. MCDU page / MISC MENU / SETUP
NAV1 and NAV2 both are set to the runway ILS frequency.
Runway course is set for the pilot and co-pilot sides.
Flaps were set to 5 ( I've tried different FULL, 5, 4, 3, 2, - it doesn't work at all).
The only ONE thing that matters is exactly following the flight plan route waypoints. That's not how it's supposed to work.
