Possible ideas for updates

  • HIGHER RESOLUTION FOR AIRPLANE COCKPITS I put this in all caps because it's really important for example on the crj900 I literally can't read anything while the resolution is at its highest and I have a good phone

    Fighter jets:

    F-16C

    F-35A/B/C

    F-22

    Liverys:

    Ec-135 with the Dutch anwb livery this one

    should be easy I think

    Ec-135 with the Dutch police livery

    Helicopters:

    H145 with Dutch MMT livery and ADAC livery

    AH-64D apache

    Chinook

    Aircrafts:

    A350

    A330

    A321

    A319

    B737max

    Scenery and other features:

    All the helipads from the Netherlands

    Dubai scenery

    Miami scenery back

    The Caribbean

    The ABC Islands (Aruba, bonaire, Curaçao) part of the Caribbean

    Sounds and other things:

    Working weather radar on all aircrafts

    And terrain map

    Working Tcas on all aircrafts with tcas warning

    Rimcas system

    New 777-300er engine sounds

    Improved 787 engine startup sounds

    787 hydraulic sounds

    A320 PTU sounds

    A320 tablet

    A380 flaps sounds

    Airports with gate spawns

    Ground services

    The new lighting system for androids

    Cockpit improvements like the quality of the texts because I have a high end phone but I sometimes see the texts blurry

    Push back tug

    Moving jet bridges that connect to the aircraft

    Airplane parking zones with AVDGS (advanced visual docking guidance system)

    Fuel truck

    Baggage truck

    Being able to open aircraft doors on all aircrafts like the a320

    The a320 tablet getting implemented

    More FMC functions

    HD Europe scenery but if I remember correctly ipacs explained why there is no HD scenery

    That's everything I could think of other people can add more and thank you for coming out with these amazing simulators these are the best simulator mobile phones have ever seen

    Updates for the simulator itself:

    Rain thunder lightning

    Ec-135 with bearpaw like real life the adac ec135 D-HUTH has bearpaws in real life but they don't have it in the simulator Jet-Pack (IPACS)

    I would like to have a basic air density simulation so leaning mixture makes sense. I really like leaning mixture by ear - when the engine revs up slightly and gets more power at altitude I truly feel like a pro.


    :)

    Air density is fully simulated but at the moment, if you climb higher the mixture stays the same. The power drops as air density decreases and all effects such as TAS vs IAS are already there. It's just that the piston engine does not yet simulate mixture changing with density.

  • Regarding cameras:

    For me the need for custom cameras shows there is a lack of default cameras.

    What camera views would you like to see added to our airliners for example?

    I want to set a custom view on a certain area in the cockpit (e.g. the 6 standard instruments or the FMC), save this custom view and then recall the same view with one key press.

    So you want a closeup view of the instruments, that's a valid point. But that doesn't mean custom views are the solution to this... That just means we need to improve the default camera positions and provide more options for you.


    Imagine all aircraft already came with good cameras that focus on the main instruments, FMC, etc...

    What views would you like to see then?


    So far you mentioned a dedicated FMS view and the six-pack view.

    What else do you want to see?

  • Thanks for the suggestions, that's more or less what others have already suggested in the past.

    It's not the lack of default views we just want free flight camera so that we can position the camera however we want with out following the plane for example my a320 is parked at the gate with a free cam I can "walk" around the aircraft or do an inspection for realism that's what people are asking for

    That is still not a custom camera position that needs to be saved. That is a walk around camera or in the air a chase plane view. We could call it a free camera and that camera sort of already exists as one of the developer cameras.

  • 1. Straight ahead from left seat - zoomed for closeup of 6 pack or glass instruments

    2. Slight right from left seat - zoom to avionics panel in GA planes - to set radios and AP

    3. Close up of throttle / throttle quadrant to see spoiler arm/flap settings/thrust levers settings.

    4. Zoomed up and slight right from left seat for Overhead panel in airliners. (might take two views)


    I still like having a view from directly above an airport. Say 800 meters or so, to see the full airport runways/taxiways.

    Now you're going to get 1000 and 1 opinions on default cameras - maybe a custom camera would take up less development time, and allow users to get that perfect camera angle.


    However as a VR user the only camera I'm really interested in is the cockpit camera, and I'd like it to allow for up/down, Forward/backward, and left/right which would then become the default VR centre position. If FS4 does this already then please ignore, and I'll eventually find it myself.


    Edit: Just found a possible solution - RE: VR controller pointer option
