  1. Try and push the speed selector knob in once before preselecting a speed. Report back!
  2. https://www.airplane-pictures.net/photo/248818/se-dmb-sas-scandinavian-airlines-mcdonnell-douglas-md-81/ In this picture you can see it can be quite a lot sometimes. It's pretty accurate (on the ground at least)
  3. Seeing as how most of the MD80 type airplanes I've seen have the same thing going on I assume it's intentional.

    Isolated Engine Start

    When trying an APU start of engine 2, I get a start press low alert. Specifically, engine 1 running and pack 1 auto, pack two off and ISOL valve closed. Why won't the engine start? I know this is common practice on very hot/cold days in the Boeings, (to have one pack isolated and running to provide some air), and looking at the schematic of the 717 with the APU bleed supply being to the right of the ISOL valve, it should also work. Any ideas? Pic 1: APU supplying the right side of the manifold with enough PSI for engine start Pic 2: A few seconds after pulling the engine 2 start switch, the PSI drops as it should, and N2 only rises to about 4%, then drops back to zero. Pretty sure in the real plane #2 would have no trouble starting.

    Any ideas on this issue? Sorry to be persistent, I can start a new topic if that's the correct way to do this.

    I see what you mean, but in my particular case it shouldn’t matter. Right side is isolated to the left with APU on and pack off, engine still wouldn’t start for some reason. Edit: Here are some screen shots to show you what I mean @turbofandude Pic 1: APU supplying the right side of the manifold with enough PSI for engine start Pic 2: A few seconds after pulling the engine 2 start switch, the PSI drops as it should, and N2 only rises to about 4%, then drops back to zero.

    Very interesting system, thanks for the info! Love learning new quirks about this airplane. One more question, just attempted to do an APU start of engine 2, and I got a start press low alert. Specifically, engine 1 running and pack 1 auto, pack two off and ISOL valve closed. Why won't the engine start? I know this is common practice on hot days in the Boeings, and looking at the schematic of the 717 with the APU bleed supply being to the right of the ISOL valve, it should also work. Any ideas?

    I realize this is the logic of the fans, but today I suddenly noticed that with the APU and engines off (no bleed air at all), this still happens. Why would the cooling fans turn off of the pack is not running?
  9. Actually still testing , so I literally made V4 bare-bones and no AA, textures are 1024, FXAA off, no autogen or anything, 172 is pushing 70FPS, 717 outside is around 20FPS, inside is about 4FPS. It's also weird because in-between the stutters I get about a half a second of 30FPS in the VC. On P3D V3 I had texture at 4096, was at FlightBeam KMEM with GSX, all ORBX products, REX, 100% road and airline traffic, AA was at 4x and FXAA on, I got about 25FPS inside on V3. Turned Hardware rendering on and off and not much difference, affinitymask on and off as well.
  10. I can attest similar specs here and same issue. As a matter of fact I just started a flight on P3D V3 with the 717 and performance was pretty stellar. Then halfway through I saved the flight and opened it with V4, loaded fine but performance was about 30% of what it was on V3. Outside FPS were OK, inside maybe i'll get 5-10FPS. Testing now on V3 virtual cockpit at a middle-of-nowhere airport i'm getting 70FPS in the 717, in V4 getting 10FPS and crashes after I updated.
  11. Just curious, why is every external light modelled almost perfectly, but the wing lights don't even exist on this model? I feel like after all the complex animations TFDi did, making the switch even move wouldn't have been a big deal.

    I get it by having zero fuel... that's just me!
