I thought the flight plan error was gone but it is back. KBOS SID PATSS DCT NELIE STAR KEWR again doesn't work in XL. I have the  latest AIRAC navdata in the GNS430 folder and in the XL folder but no joy. The A320 reds the plan just fie but XL throws this at me:

I just checked another flight plan, it had a DCT in it and won't work.

very disappointed!


I tried every time I got DCT to delete it, sometimes in addition the FIX before or after. I often works....

Re: Plan for future

Two ideas for X-Life (to come back to topic)

- prefer gates on airports (could be bound on aircraft type which is set in ATC flightplan menu f.e. B738) I get often a stand to taxi after landing, instead of a autogate (which would be nicer)
- give facing instructions for pushback "cleared for pushback facing north/south/west/east"

Had some great experiences with X-Life the last two flights. Really nice addon!

Re: Plan for future

Hi,

What would be also great is to have much more "local flight companies" at ground regards different airports

For example at LOWW (Austrian) a lot of other Autrian Air planes, In germany, LUfthansa and so on...

You need to install the XSaitekpanels plug-in (by sparker/Bill Good) and customize the XSaitekpanels.ini file for the A320/A330 by adding the appropriate datarefs. It's all in the XSaitekpanels manual.

Re: Plan for future

Hello,

Thanks for adding the airport editor: it helps a lot.

For future, what I really really would like to see is some VFR support. I love seeing my airport populated (alive smile ) but most of the time I just want to do a little GA local flight. It is impossible with current version...

So I would like (without filling  a flight plan):
1) To be able to ask ground/tower for taxi instructions to the runway
2) To be able to ask tower for VFR departure (you may add a direction north east etc) or maybe just do patterns
3) For arrival : to get tower instructions like enter downwind, base or final and then landing clearance (complete or option)
etc

It would be even better if there are some other VFR AI traffic...

These features existed in FSX and I remembered having a lot of fun with it. I believe it is not so hard to implement (it seems much easier than implementing SID and STAR traffic...) but developers focus mainly on IFR flights only which is very sad sad.

Thank you for reading smile

Re: Plan for future

Hello,

What would be perhaps also nice, would that ATC at ground is a little more "stricter".
For example with introduction of Estimated Off Blocks Time and target Off Blocks TIme.

Moreover to make more realistic also that during climb, ATC ask to climb to precise FL

Re: Plan for future

Hi,

Something that seems important for me :

The possibility to cancel the "go around" from ATC and tell that I need to land now.
I forced some times the request to land (because of time in real life smile and after the trafic is like blocked because waiting my plane

thanks a lot for all this beautiful work

Re: Plan for future

Hello

What about a voice interface to ATC, talking directly to the controller as in P2ATC is much more fun

Re: Plan for future

Good day,
Hi everyone its been a while what have i been doing well I have been in college finishing up the last of my AA degree in computer science. you might ask what that has to do with X-Life well the next class I am sitting in is Visual Basic, 'Visual Studio 17' and HTML5,CSS3 advanced and CS-80 programming. After that I do not know where the wind will take me but I have enough credits to transfer to a four year college or University. I had a TAG grantee to transfer but found out it was all a joke on me as another student was playing a game on me... and so the transfer to UC Santa Cruz computer science department is a no go but I will find something else to do...
happy flying,
