Serving drinks/meals not always triggered in cruise - MSFS

My passengers are thirsty.  😀  A lot of times the drinks aren't served because either the program does not recognize the plane is in cruise (even when the cruise altitude matches the flight setup) or even when its in cruise, the flight attendants are on strike and refuse to serve.  These issues are mainly in MSFS and particularly in the CRJ.

Is there anything that can be done to either manually trigger service or have the program recognize the appropriate mode?

Thanks.

After a certain amount of time, PACX will recognise the plane is no longer climbing and switch to the cruise phase automatically. Is this not happening?

While this would admittedly be hilarious if it was the case, it could be that the flight is simply too short to have a service. What is the typical length of a flight for you?

Unfortunately, this would be the responsibility of the cabin crew. Hence, we do not allow the pilot to manually trigger a flight service.

This is issue of passengers always being thirsty to VERY thirsty has been brought up repeatedly, and there's apparently nothing that can be done. Regardless of whether you  just snack service or meal service, they're ALWAYS thirsty, no matter how long or short the flight is.

This is correct, people do sometimes board flights while hungry or thirsty and in the middle of the flight, before snacks and drinks are served become very hungry or very thirsty. This is human nature and we do not intend to change this behaviour at the moment.
