    TFDi Design 717: What's Next

    @richcam427 It's currently on hold, but not dead.

    Display flickering in VC view

    @jetfish Can you try setting your FPS limit to 60 in P3D to see if it improves? Also, are you using SLI graphics cards?

    ILS Approach Altitude hold

    @jetfish Ah! I've got this on the list - we'll have a pretty comprehensive post V1.1 patch at some point in the relatively near future, I'll do my best to throw this in there.

    Flight attendant announcements

    Currently, these parameters aren't an option.

    Tablet "auto-lock" timer is not saved

    We'll get this reviewed/looked into.

    AFS goes from RETARD back to THRUST on nose touch

    @it0uchpods I'll get this reviewed/fixed.

    717 AutoRudder Issues

    @orbmis It is on the list for the first update post V1.1.

    ILS Approach Altitude hold

    Just to make sure, have is captured the glideslope? (Are you seeing LOC and G/S with the green AUTOLAND annunciation?)

    A couple of questions

    Regarding VAPP, you should be able to manually edit the speed restrictions via the MCDU F-PLN or VERT REV page. If that's not working, please let me know. VAPP is also an editable field. Regarding extending the centerline, you can do this via a place, bearing, distance (PBD) waypoint off of the final fix. It's entered as FIX/BEARING/DISTANCE into the MCDU (i.e. KALB/5/10).

    717 AutoRudder Issues

    I'm not sure I follow you. If you need autorudder, enable it in the tablet.

    717 AutoRudder Issues

    @orbmis Ah! There lies the issue. Yes, it's supposed to be restoring it to your setting anytime you're not flying the aircraft. I will take another look at it.

    717 AutoRudder Issues

    We agree - it only "changes" it while the aircraft is in use. It puts it back as you had it when you shut down the sim or change to a different plane (or, at least, it should be).

    ND does not show course

    When you say "course", what are you referring to? Can you send some screenshots? What do you mean it doesn't follow the FMC?

    717 AutoRudder Issues

    @GerdD Our code implements a custom form of autorudder, hence we disable the default one while the aircraft is in use. We put the in-sim autorudder setting back to whatever it was when you unload the aircraft. The indication on the tablet is the one you would want to check to see if it's in use on our aircraft.

    flight plan lines not showing

    The problem with SGSS has existed since release. It is a problem with Direct2D, the way the rendering engine is implemented in Prepar3D, and the way SGSS works. If I remember correctly, toggling hardware rendering in the Addon Manager will allow use of SGSS. The reason no other aircraft so far have this problem is because they don't use the same rendering technology (Direct2D). I believe the Aerosoft Airbus does use it, if I remember correctly - do you have that aircraft?

    Still low FPS after the new update

    @alfredhpg we definitely need to schedule a TeamViewer session so I can take a direct look. That shouldn't be the case at all.

    FMC VOR Radial intercept ARMED and TRACK

    I will review this ASAP.
  19. turbofandude

    A few questions.

    1.) Yes, our FIX page is limited. 2.) What cost index, weight, and altitude were you at when you saw this? That does sound awfully low for standard descent. 3.) It is likely incorrect - I will review and correct it as much as possible. The engine startup sequence has always been a sticking point due to how our systems are coded. And an eyebrow-free model is something we have considered. It may still happen, I just can't promise when.

    Post v1.1 observations

    @Shomron Koush It's possible - I'd say try updating the content and reinstalling the client as well.

    FMS PROF speed on final approach

    Currently, it should begin decelerating when the slats or flaps are deployed.

    Future development of 717

    I'll see what we can make happen - winds likely won't ever happen, as there are a LOT of considerations to be made with it and the systems weren't designed with them in mind. The others should be a lot more doable.

    Post v1.1 observations

    @Shomron Koush This DEFINITELY sounds like an issue with SimConnect or the sim. The lack of thrust makes sense because our FADEC likely can't read the engines properly either, so it thinks it's already maxed and won't increase the throttle. Would you be able to schedule a TeamViewer session with me to take a direct look? If so, please PM me.

    Aircraft state not saving

    This is actually an oversight, really. We only implemented the force persistence save option to help us with debugging. We don't have a formal system for loading custom panel states (but we probably should add one).

    Low FPS in the cockpit

    @dimkzr Thank you very much for the follow up! I wouldn't have expected it to be the effects, but that makes sense. @HughesMDflyer4 Please follow this thread.
