FSC9

Recommended Posts

I have noticed a couple of things that are a bit of a bother.

1.) When saving flight plans I cannot use a hyphen like I could in FSC8.6.

I can use the underscore. Is this to be expected? Tried on two PC's to verify.

2.) When selecting flight plan altitudes for VFR flights I like to use NA

evens and odds plus 500 as per the general rules; however, the down-up

buttons only result in displaying the hundreds as in FL: 60

This seems to be a fundamental shift from real-world rules.

Is this to be expected?

Hi Canuck21a,

ad 1) you are right, hyphens are not accepted, only underscores.

ad 2) you are also right, we don't distinguish VFR/IFR before flight plans are saved. In addition, with one exception the value there has no effect on anything in the program.

Regards

I noticed that others have posted about the hyphen and that you are likely planning on a future fix.

I also noticed that others have commented on not being able to select already saved plans when Save-As.

Looks like a fix might be coming.

I do wish to emphasize the importance of the 500 foot rule. Your response was noted but it does seem to me that the altitude

set in FSC does save on the FSX flight plan does it not?

Perhaps you can consider a change to allow for flight levels like 25,30,35,40,45,50,55,60, etc. in a future release?

Notes:

I'm firmly in Darryl's corner on these points, with the addition of lower-case annotation. In order to define clear and cogent filenames, lower case is a simple, but much-needed feature.

Hi,

we are currently collecting user responses and will shortly publish a "bug fix" download which not only fixes the hyphen and 500ft stuff, but also a few others. Please give us another week or so. We will announce on this forum when we are done.

Regards

Sascha
