Raus aus der Beta, rein in die normale Version. Microsoft und Asobo haben das Aircraft and Avionics Update 2 (AAU2) für den Microsoft Flight Simulator veröffentlicht. Vor allem die 787 und 747 profitieren von dem Update. Working Title, die das Update umgesetzt haben, stellen außerdem noch ein Handbuch zu den beiden Heavies als PDF bereit.

Das AAU2 war vor mehreren Wochen als Open Beta an den Start gegangen und hatte seit dem immer wieder Updates bekommen. Damit erhält der Sim erstmals eine systemtiefe Überarbeitung von zwei großen Jets. Im AAU1 hatte sich Working Title bereits um die GA-Systeme wie G1000, G3000 und GNS530 gekümmert.

Working Title wurde von Microsoft im März 2021 ins Boot geholt. Seitdem kümmert sich das Team um die Verbesserung der Avionik. Wir hatte Dominik aus dem WT-Team im Podcast bei „Die Simulanten“.

Hier das Changelog zum gerade erschienen AAU2:

General Bug Fixes

  • The autopilot/flight director HDG mode now only reverses turn direction if the selected heading is turned past the airplane’s current heading in the direction of the turn reversal (NXI, G3000, GNS, WT21)
  • Improved the behavior of turn anticipation calculation around AF/RF legs whose start and end points are slightly offset from the arc (NXI, G3000, GNS, WT21)
  • Fixed an issue where backcourse localizers are not being flown correctly (NXI, G3000, GNS, WT21)
  • Some error message boxes have been changed into notifications to make them less intrusive.

Glass Cockpits

Garmin G3000 / G5000

  • Fixed some edge cases where VPATH was not properly disarmed/deactivated after a change to the VNAV state made it so that there was no path to track
  • Fixed various cases where the VNAV profile would sometimes display incorrect information near the end of an approach depending on if the missed approach was activated
  • Fixed a bug where the autopilot/flight director would not deactivate LOC mode during ILS/LOC approaches after the active nav source was switched to FMS
  • Fixed a bug where certain intersections would not be displayed on the map or the GTC Nearest Intersections page
  • Fixed a bug where removing the traffic and relative terrain indicators from the navigation map would leave behind an empty but visible container
  • Fixed a bug where TAWS touchdown callouts were not using nearest runway elevation
  • Fixed a small inaccuracy in the lateral deviation scale above the PFD HSI Map
  • The autopilot/flight director HDG mode now only reverses turn direction if the selected heading is turned past 330 degrees away from the airplane’s current heading
  • Fixed a bug where sometimes re-opening a GTC popup using the Back button would cause elements below it to not be correctly hidden or darkened
  • Fixed a bug where the VNAV profile was not displaying time to TOD when still in the departure segment even if the airplane has reached cruise altitude and sequenced all climb constraints
  • Reduced the delay of TAWS touchdown callouts when using radio altitude

G1000 Nxi

  • Added support for third-party developers to provide global plugins for the NXi
  • Extended MFD rotary knob menu to allow customization by avionics plugins

  • Fixed B key not syncing barometer to actual pressure

Garmin GNS430W / GNS530W

  • Fixed some page navigation issues where the right knob push would not close dialogs
  • Added confirmation dialog for Activate Leg flight plan menu item
  • Added support for double direct-to on an existing waypoint to activate the leg
  • Fixed a bug where certain intersections would not be displayed on the map or the Nearest Intersections page
  • Fixed a bug that could cause the lists in the Nearest pages to become corrupted
  • Fixed a bug where the autopilot/flight director would not deactivate LOC mode during ILS/LOC approaches after the active nav source was switched to FMS
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the 430 to not load correctly when hot-swapped in from being inactive
  • Fixed some page navigation issues where the right knob push would not close dialogs
  • Fixed bug causing time zone offset to always be treated as positive

KAP140

  • Corrected an issue in the default KAP140 template that caused the 100s’ knob animation to be applied to both the 100s’ knob, and the 1000s’

Ich bin gestern gleich mal die 787 und 747 probegeflogen und ich muss wirklich sagen, tolle Arbeit. So hätte ich mir die Flieger von Anfang an gewünscht.

Es ist natürlich bei Weitem noch nicht alles implementiert, was möglich wäre, aber im jetzigen Zustand würde ich die beiden sogar als hervorragend Vatsim-tauglich bezeichnen.

Also ehrlich, wann kapieren die Entwickler endlich, dass man ‚cold&dark‘ im Dunklen mit einem komplett abgedunkelten overhead panel einfach nicht starten kann?!! Ich kann es einfach nicht nachvollziehen…. 🙁

Dafür gibt es im MSFS die Taschenlampe.

Ich bin zwar nicht so der Boeing Fan, aber da muss ich wohl doch mal die weißen Lichter anlassen. 🙂 Das Update find ich super.

Lionheart Creations haben ein Flugzeug für den Microsoft Flight Simulator veröffentlicht, das schon länger im Portfolio der Add-on-Schmiede existiert. Die Wittman Tailwind ist ein Flugzeugbausatz von Luftfahrt-Enthusiast Steve Wittman. Die virtuelle Version kommt jetzt in mehreren Varianten in den Sim.
Der größte Airport in der kalifornischen Bay Area ist der Flughafen von San Francisco. Bisher ist dieser Platz, bis auf die handcrafted Asobo Szenerie, ein weißer Fleck auf der MSFS-Payware Landkarte. Unerwartet wurde hier nun eine Payware veröffentlicht.
Wir haben lange auf den Release der Phantom für DCS hingefiebert. Auch wenn sich der Public Release leider um einen Tag verzögert, setzen wir heute Abend um 20 Uhr den Helm auf, ziehen den G-Suit an und lassen die Nachbrenner der J79 ordentlich Kerosin verbrennen. Zusammen mit euch schauen wir uns den Flieger an und drehen natürlich auch ein paar Runden über dem Mittelmeer. Mit dabei, unser DCS Experte Philipp.
