Within the next 48 hours you'll be able to fly version 1.1 of the IXEG 737 Classic!
Added TCAS. Just like in the real airplane, it will show various types
of traffic (PROX, TA, RA) and the relative altitude, plus voice
callouts and visual aids to avoiding RA traffic. The panel should work
as the real one, including TA only, ABV/BLW, STBY, etc.
Improved EGPWS. This is enhanced over 1.0.7 - the modes (1-5) should
work a lot more closely to how the real modes work, including submodes
(i.e. 4A, 4B). There is also a terrain-look-ahead feature that will
alert when approaching terrain higher than the aircraft. New panel, new
switches, new TERRAIN ON light. New INOP label for FO´s terrain display.
Opening cargo doors with door annunciators and 3D cargo holds modeled.
Eyebrow windows including selectable sunshade panels (select in preferences menu)
Opening cockpit door
Now showing current active waypoint distance and ETA on EHSI upper corners in MAP and CTR MAP mode
Added increase/decrease map range datarefs
A multitude of fixes to FMS stability and LNAV drawing and performance
Several texture fixes
INOP label for the logo lights if winglets fitted
Autopilot fixes (autothrust gain, logic of MA buttons, GS arm logic,
cleanup of FMA modes in some circumstances, FL CHG pitch behaviour in
MACH regime with turbulence)
Several rare gizmo crashes fixed for switches and levers
Fixes to headings and bearings shown on FIX INFO and LEGS page (now show correct magnetic tracks)
Ground power not showing anymore when booting in turnaround state
Fixes to default transition altitude not always showing correctly (still just a crude east/west division)
Added realistic way to operate approach speeds on APPROACH page
Added failure flag to altimeter when not electrically powered
Improved EFIS symbology when IRS units not aligned
Fuel gauges now show "lbs" when imperial units are selected
LNAV tracking accuracy improved (no more offset flying)
Ground model improvements when using airplane with XP11 (no full XP11 compatibility yet)
Solved numerous situations that would cause the FMS to produce soft crashes in the Gizmo console
Numerous "ninja fixes" for X-Plane 11 compatibility. This means things
may work in X-Plane11, but we do not officially support it and it may
not be truly accurate numbers as you would find flight model wise in
X-Plane 10. This is just enough to get by and allow your enjoyment in XP
In my opinion this already pretty well had everything, the graphics are truly stunning and almost real world and flying it is just on that sweet spot with its position in-between the steam gauge generations and today's glass cockpits. It makes you think and fly it rather than just become a slave to modern day automation, yes the 777, for example, is a brilliant aircraft but very boring for flightsimmers as it pretty well does everything for you.
Yes the update was long coming and IXEG regulars were wondering if it would ever arrive, our faith has been rewarded - thanks to the developers and we look forward to full XP 11 compatibility in future updates.
Moving Maps both on enroute charts and airport diagrams
Flights accepting route strings
Pinboard for flexible organization of airport charts
Dynamic, interactive and fully searchable enroute charts
Decentralization of server structure for good responsiveness around the globe
Note that this is not an official product release, as such a release
would also include Charts for iOS, Android and Windows and Mac desktops.
No, this is just a little opportunity for you to get a sneak peek on
what the future Charts Cloud will look like, and also an opportunity to
influence the final design.
