Re: Any Ideas

As someone mentioned, using programs like Active Sky Advanced to enhance weather and give you real-world weather means flights will always be different. Also, fly using real-world rules. Sometimes you have to divert around storms, sometimes airports are below minimums for an instrument approach and ...

Re: cheats ruin fsa

I hate to play the role of moderator, but, as the post you reference clearly states, this should have been addressed in private to the admins.

Re: Some my ideas

1) Don't see why not. Just as important as the landing lights, and was on commercial aircraft even back in the 1930s. I would agree. Working on the ramp in Spokane for UPS, we're not even allowed to enter within the perimeter of the aircraft (draw an oval around the aircraft that is 5-foot from all...

Re: Idea for a/c failures

Hi Guys, Make sure sim messages are turned on in your client options. If you get a client induced failure you will get an accompanying sim message from the client. If you get a failure but no sim message then it is not client related. Turning on sim messages is a good idea especially now that the a...

Faster and cheaper since there was less labor, but I guess my main thought was that a change in pax configuration with combis also creates a change in cargo capacity.

Re: Pax seats number change - possible?

I like the cabin configurations idea that's being bounced around, but as Joe stated, without a system to gauge demand for the varying classes, it would be more of a novelty. I'd personally like to see it come in along with a system to deal with first-class, business-class, and cattle-class passenger...

Re: Idea for a/c failures

I haven't flown long enough to encounter a failure in FSA yet, but you mentioned a message displayed in the flight sim. Is this always the case for all failures, or just the ones that aren't quite something FS can simulate well (such as fires)? If it's always displayed, is there an option to turn it...
