And of course fixed some stuff as well. Here’s a list of what you will see in the upcoming update today: * Changed autopilot improved LOC tracking, now uses a calculated lateral offset, not deflection angle * Changed autopilot / flight director LOC stays engaged when autopilot disconnects * Changed Fly by wire implemented C* law, modified flight phase transitions, pitch trim reset after touch down now smoother, nz load protection. * Changed FBW bank protection, how the aircraft rolls back to 33deg when stick released, softer pitch attitude stop, over speed protection now targets VMO + 15kts when stick full down, VMO when released. * Changed FBW angle of attack protection now internally also controls only angle of attack, aileron compensates asymmetries better * Changed wheel simulation: improved ground handling, idle taxiing and improved brake control. Q400 one engine taxiing now possible. * Added parking brake * Added deformable wheel animation * Added thrust lever sealing lip animations for Q400 and F18, more to come * Fixed A320 fixed auto-brake now disables 5 seconds after lift off, correct ECAM page displayed after lift off during gear retraction, PFD now displays correct ground phase * Changed ASG29 improved flight model: more realistic behavior to flap, added pitch trim synchronization on AP disconnect button (force trim), reduced drag from landing gear, fine tuned glide performance for current weight (no water) * Changed pressure settings in airliners are not automatically set to either STD or QNH when initialized in air or ground. * Fixed B737 localizer now displays correctly * Changed B747 flight physics to be less sensitive to throttle, better flare dynamics * Changed B747 updated cockpit 3D model with new textures, newly modeled switches and buttons * Fixed B747 some bugs in VNAV, placing the 747 near the route should now correctly resume VNAV PATH * Added F18 high and low sensitivity nose wheel steering, toggled per AP disconnect (same button in real world) * Changed Q400 decreased nose gear steering speed to be more realistic, decreased drag on approach, more realistic cruise drag * Changed Q400 increased full flap pitch attitude, decreased pitch attitude for others * Fixed Q400 a bug in the REDUCED NP LANDING, a bug in the pitch trim runaway detection, is now sensitive to autopilot pitch trim changes * Fixed Q400 master caution and master warning, now re triggers when a new warning comes up * Fixed Q400 a bug in the formatted ILS view * Changed Q400 increased stall trigger margin for full flaps * Changed Q400 right side MFD to display system pages per default We have also added support for FSWidgets ( http://fswidgets.com/shop/index.php) which can now be enabled from within the settings menu. As always, we wish to thank you for your support and sometimes patience while we aim to deliver you a realistic and professional flight simulator.
