Version 19.5.24.0 Changes
  • Added choice of default GPS gauge to Aircraft Configurator (P3D version). The legacy fs9gps gauge is the recommended option; the p3dgps gauge includes some additional features but appears to be a work-in-progress.
  • Added gauge tap physics for fuel gauge.
  • Improved physics to simulate differing load on gear and flap motors resulting from air resistance and gravity.
  • Increased electrical current from landing and taxi light operation.
  • Replaced the 2000 fpm VSI with a 4000 fpm VSI which is more commonplace in V35Bs.
  • Improved placement of HSI glideslope needle when below glideslope with needle parked.
  • Improved nose strut animation to reduce tyre sink under braking.
  • Improved synchronization of Accu-Sim engine thrust with host simulator.
  • Improved auto cold-and-dark behaviour to reset engine temperatures to ambient conditions.
  • Removed gauge tap action being triggered by mouse wheel.
  • Fixed GNS 400 'in'/'out' tooltips.
  • Fixed textures on rear cabin wall of external model (FSX).
