COTS v.1.1 UPDATE RELEASED
Go where no commercial airliner has gone before…
As some of you already know, Captain of the Ship is a deep simulation of the crew and pilot's experience flying the Boeing 377. It has received quite a vigorous post release beta test cycle. We welcomed two new testers to our beta team, BigJuicySpider and Mustang, who hit the ground running and made strong contributions to this update. As usual, thanks to the whole team for making our flagship even better.
Enhancements: - High speed, stall, gear, flaps, and cowl flaps body shaking added to new physics - Mouse wheel controls the attitude indicator calibration knob - Autopilot makes coordinated turns - Mixture affects engine fouling - No Meals / Meals button for the controls panel. If No Meals is set, then meals will not be prepared. If a meal is being prepared or eating, and you set No Meals, then they will immediately move to the "cleaning up" stage. - Tweaked yaw dampener - Passengers and crew are slightly forgiving with turbulence and with seatbelts on
Fixes / updates: - Fuel dumping no longer turns career mode off - Fixed turbo 1 cutoff switch from affecting other turbos - Fixed engine selector for split throttles - Fixed FE high airport altitude pressurization at flight start - Navigator's radio altimeter odd wire fixed - Only capture takeoff coords just before takeoff (not when starting in flight) - Fixed bug where applause could happen without passengers - No fuel flow when engines are off (FSX Bug) - Fixed formatting error in crew reports that tied two messages together w/o a line return - Fuel pressure warning lights modified to new system - Added "weight on wheels" de-pressurization valve - Captain's Log doesn't show "Will record after engines are shut down" when flight isn't being recorded - Pilot's radio altimeter warning lights go off when the indicators are off - Doors are FS default to avoid door open lights and doors losing synch - VIP chances no longer affected when using fast load - Configurator stores settings in my documents/a2a/fsx/377 - Axis config is loaded from my documents/a2a/fsx/377. - Old path is also supported, so no user action is required after update. Configurator will automatically move the previous file to new location. - Fixed doors not closing after unloading - Fixed career mode going off when using fuel dump - The altimeters can be calibrated below sea level - Misc texture typos fixed - VFE turbo bleeders managed under main panel and not pressurization section - Fixed typo error causing EBP#1 to be too low at idle - Small calculation errors in air distance resolved - Any emergency triggers a cleanup if food is out - VFE does not turn on cabin lights any more - ADF signal strength indicator fixed / ADF Control switch turns off the RMI needles ADFs - Trimmers tooltips read in degrees - pixel_size= added to the Shift+1 panel for Matrox users - Guppy unsupported features removed from the Guppy 2D Controls panel - Heidi takes a bit more time to prepare drinks after seatbelt sign is turned off - Pilot will not make routine annoucements (climb, cruise, descent) during emergencies - Pressurization and passenger warnings not possible in crew reports for Guppy - Cabin pressurization dump valve pressure release speed increased - Drag system restored - Turbo diff pressure should not occur when engines are off - Cowl flap buffeting is increased - Flaps can be set to 0, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 and full - Throttle smoothing code added - Brighter ground track dashed line on the map - Animated maximum allowable airspeed needle.
I left the west coast of Florida this morning before dawn and am currently a little over an hour from starting the decent into Gibralter AB. Straight across, non-stop and in real time. I should have about an hour of fuel to spare, but the oil is going to be very close.
