    VOR radials are true tracks instead of magnetic

    Well, this is wrong. A VOR is set according to the magnetic north, a radial from a vor must be magnetic or the reading is completely false. Can you imagine an airline pilot converting a VOR magnetic radial from his charts to true in order to perform a VOR approach properly? I guess (I hope) the tfdi team has some basic aviation knowledge, VOR radials being magnetic is one. I just can’t believe an aircraft development team does not know that. Pardon me the way I’m answering, but how on earth is it possible to still getting such mistakes/issues 2 years after the initial release? How on earth can we be left with mistakes like this on an airliner which is supposed to be complete with advanced systems? How can we be answered 3 months after a report for such a huge mistake? It really sounds unbelievable for me for an aircraft of that price. Initially we could say it’s okay you’re a small and young team, but 2 years after the release and a silent support now let’s start to do something please. I hope this will be fixed soon, at least I got an answer almost 3 month after my report. Quite unhappy how we’ve been left with such issues for months without any word from you guys, feeling like the 717 is becoming an abandonware. Hope you’ll show us it’s not.

  5. At Colin request, THE MCDU causes excessive freezing stutters when accessing the MCDU during descent. Everything works normal from takeoff to cruise but as the aircraft begins the VNAV decent profile, any access in the MCDU causes 1-7 second freezes. Even clicking on the different functional buttons causes this. It makes controlling the aircraft jerky and unpleasant. I hope it can be replicated so I can finally enjoy the 717 again. Thanks!!

    Squawk Code Settings

    @Slod My apologies for the silence. I've got this on my list of things to take care of in the upcoming week.

    VOR radials are true tracks instead of magnetic

    This has been an ongoing discussion for a bit - our reference has provided inconclusive results. Traditionally, a "radial" is true, not magnetic, hence our code displaying it that way.

    Issues with AIRAC 1813 rev1

    Yeah, I reverted back to 1812. The latest one is botched up.

    Issues with AIRAC 1813 rev1

    Looks like this is isolated to TFDI. PMDG 737 generated the same route with no issues in arrival runway placement. Thanks, -Dan-

    Issues with AIRAC 1813 rev1

    Is anyone else having issues with arrival airport runways showing up hundreds of miles away from the actually airport position? I've had this happen twice in a row with very random airports. KTYS and KSDF. Both times the runway listed in FMC shows up hundreds of miles from the approach. I haven't tested with another aircraft yet, so I don't know if this is a AIRAC 1813 issue or a TFDI issue with this specific AIRAC. Anyone else have this problem? I thought it was isolated to KTYS, but its strange its doing this with another random airport. Thanks, -Dan-

    Is smartCARS dead?

    There hasn't been any movement or new development in over a year. The bugs and submissions list is huge. Is this thing dead? If so, can you maybe open source the non-network specific stuff so we can make it do more?

    ILS

    Having the same issue. Captures the LOC but not the G/S.

    ILS

    Hi all, during last flight, I performed a STAR with a direct fly to LOC. When I hit "APPROACH/LAND", the localazier and the glide became armed and not active, but I was already on the Loc. So it was necessary to make a little turn and come back on loc to active it. Is it a bug?
  15. I've submitted the documents to PFPX team and was informed that it will be included in an update shortly.

    aircraft repaints not showing up

    In the liverie you downloaded there is a file explaining that you have to copy the text in your cfg of the aircraft. Use notepad to open it and copy paste it in the cfg of the aircraft. In the document it will tell you in which directory. The xx in the first command string you can edit with a number. I did that yesterday and then it showed up in fsx steam. Good luck.

    T/D wrongly calculated/inserted

    Hi guys - I can also confirm this appears to be an AIRAC issue. I had the same problems with 1813 but rolling back to 1811 and that solved it.

    Possible cause for CTD in P3Dv4.4

    So I did some testing and troubleshooting and discovered the following anomaly: Whenever I start P3D with the Tfdi addon manager running in the background or when I start it after having loaded up P3D with the 717 I usually experience the said CTD's when switching views. Before that I simply did some testing by just loading up the 717 at any airport and switching views like crazy (via chaseplane). All was fine until I started my next A to B flight - CTD, again. Today I figured, why not try and load the 717 via the internal P3D load manager? It's a pain but also doable if one can fogure out the logic and weight distribution. And rest assured, no CTD's while switching views so far. And much smoother FPS too! So I suspest that there is something up with the Tfdi addon manager that might be causing this. Can anyone who has been getting CTD's try and set up a flight without ever running the addon manager and report back if this alleviatessaid crashes for him as well?

    T/D wrongly calculated/inserted

    Interesting. Guess it's a botched AIRAC then.

    Same issue. Rolled back to AIRAC 1812 and it works.

    I don't have a screenshot, but this happened to me as well, flying the JONZE2 into KCLT

    Sounds...

    Anyone else experiencing sound issues with the 717? When I click on a switch I lose most internal sounds in the VC, or they fade out until I switch views out and back into the VC...

    Happening to me as well - P3Dv4.4 (Client only update) with airac 1813...

    I just had this exact same problem.

    AFS goes from RETARD back to THRUST on nose touch

    Thank you! J

    AFS goes from RETARD back to THRUST on nose touch

    Apologies for the late answer! This is resolved now and should behave as expected in the next version.

    T/D wrongly calculated/inserted

    I have the same issue i think it is something that is wrong in the 1813 cycle!

    T/D wrongly calculated/inserted

    Had a really weird bug yesterday when flying into KMSP. After inserting the MUSCL3 arrival, via IDIOM for an ILS 12R approach, the FMS created a T/D that was like between my runway and the final FIX of the ILS approach. Said T/D was 1000+nm away as well and could not be removed/shifted. Running v1.1 of the 717 in P3Dv4.4 and AIRAC 1813. Also, once passing the FAF my route just disappeared completely.
