@Andrew Wilson

So about the sequence described, where does it take the weights from first ? fltsim.cfg still ?

Manual says it will first find a specific reg.cfg, otherwise will build the cfg from an airline pack or if nothing is found will generate the default values.

It's understandable for the [Callouts] and [Options] sections, I guess it'll look for the airline_icao_code value, but what about the [Weights] ?

It will look for everything in the order specified: first reg.cfg, then airline cfg file, else it'll use default values.

If no reg.cfg is available, then the weights are built using default values (i.e. what you'd see when loading up the FSL livery).

Has the autopilot problem about not holding altitude and start sudden climbs been fixed as well?

We're unable to reproduce the issue of the pitch becoming un-responsive. Let us know if you still experience this issue with the next build, in case the issue was related to any of the fixes that have since been made.

@Andrew Wilson any fix in trim calculations?

That's not on our side - it's a Wabpro issue. 

We're preparing our own Takeoff Performance solution to be made available at a later time.

So just to get this right, the system will look for an aircraft configuration file first, if it can‘t find one, it will look for an airline configuration file (airline pack). 

What if I have both? Will it stop looking when it finds an airframe config? Or will the airLINE config overrule the airFRAME config when it finds one? 

Thanks!

If it cant find an airframe config it will create one based on fltsim.cfg files in the livery folder and in the airline pack. Livery cfg takes precedence over airline cfg in case of a conflict. If either one is missing it will take all the information from the available CFG. And if both are missing it will create one based on default values

At least thats how i understood Andrews explanation

I see, so there will still be a fltsim.cfg in the livery folder? ... That means we have now tree configs to maintain? .... Or will the cfgs be obsolete once the „New“ registration.cfg is written?  

I guess it will be more clear once it‘s out....

nope the other way around: we now have only one config to (actively) maintain. The old system was a bit confusing, as missing option entries in the livery cfg were loaded from the airline cfg. So you had to look at both configs to fully understand whats being applied to your aircraft. With the new system, all the settings are ultimately stored in the airframe file. As long as you dont delete it (and cause it to be recreated), only those settings will be considered when you load respective airframe in P3D

Ah Lars has said - the new system really just works behind the scenes. You don't need to do anything. You shouldn't need to edit any files - any changes you make through the MCDU OPTIONS will be written to the airframe and retained. You can even now set the airframe reference weights through the MCDU. 

The registration configuration files and/or airline packs just offer an initial set of parameters that are used to configure any newly installed airframe. Once an airframe is installed, you may change any of the settings under MCDU/OPTIONS and they will be saved to that airframe. Nothing will change/write over those, unless you choose to 'reset' that airframe - forcing its settings to be re-generated next time you load the aircraft. 

I think once customers start using the update, it will become very clear how this all works.

One more nit, Andrew.  The file you attached above is titled "A320X Aircraft Options", but inside the document it is called "Airframe Options".

@Andrew Wilson Sorry for hijacking the thread, but as we are talking about airframe options anyways, i figured i could sneak in a question reg max pax setting

by using "max_num_pax=XXX/XX/XX/XX" we can not only set max passengers, but also define the A/B/C zones in the cabin. Will this affect weight distribution the same as cargo compartements, which means we should always ensure that all 3 numbers are more or less equal? Or is it purely cosmetic and only changes the information on the payload/boarding pages of the MCDU?

 I'm just wondering if this could be used to depict classes like Economy, Premium-Economy and Business, but if it affects weight distribution i rather not cramp all my eco passengers into the last third of the cabin *g*

Hm.... I always thought that the pax zones A B C used for weight distribution had nothing to do with the classes in which airlines divide their seats.....

Thats exactly my question. Its clear that the ABC zones have nothing to do with classes, but if its only cosmetic (and the internal logic will distribute pax weight based on other factors), it could be used to depict different booking classes. 

If it really has an effect on weight distribution i'm actually surprised that it can be user customized rather than being autocalculated based on max pax number ("max pax"/3). One small typo can seriously harm your flying experience in this case

You can just insert "max_num_pax=180" and it will divide for you. No typo to seriously harm your flying experience ;)

In my experience, it will then just divide by 3.

i know that, i was just asking for clarification reg. effect on weight distribution, as it accepts user customization of the zones. I would have tested it myself but my bus has been grounded until we get compatibility for v4.5.12

Good evening,

Just to clarify, the liveries that require installers will automatically install the correct and individual reg information into the file, but what about the liveries where one requires to put the texture folder into the SimObjects file manually... I know this creates a Panel file automatically but that's within the same folder, so will we have manually put the .reg files into the Airframe Config folder if it is a manual installation?

Thanks for any answers,

Will.

Only if one is included with the repaint. One issue we observed with the 347 release is that some repaints either didn't include airframe options, or worse, included incorrect airframe options that were conflicting (compiled in error). This new infra will prevent this from happening.

Hi Lars, 

It's not cosmetic - you can adjust the boarding configuration, within limits. For example, British Airways have a config on some of their A321's of 154/23/59/72 - which puts 23 in 'business' and the rest in OB/OC. An easyJet cabin layout, with no business cabin, would typically be split 3 ways - i.e. 180/60/60/60.

I've done some more work in this area included in the next update: we do parse these cabin configurations and there is now logic to prevent an improper distribution. I.e. you cannot have something like 150/12/42/96. This would put the ZFCG too far aft - and so the simulator would reconfigure this to even out sections OC/OB with, for example: 150/12/69/69. Any cargo would then be loaded further forward to yield a MACTOW around 28%-32%. 

Customers should certainly see a more balanced load.

I was really excited to install the hot fix......been plagued with stutters and pauses since installing v4.5 a few weeks ago. That is of course until i booted up my fslabs ‘bus only to find it was incompatible.....surprise!  Looks like I’m going back to v4.4 until these guys release a compatible update. Oh well....my excitement will need wait for another day.

They will release a fix soon. Just gotta be patient. You can revert back to the original  v4.5 or v4.4 client in the meantime.

Yep, good old version lock. Last item on my list is the Labs before I can update. Unfortunately it's the norm but I'm expecting sometime this week.

Hey so, I installed the hotfix for my client, content and scenery. If I want to go back, so I just reinstall the older client? Or does scenery and content need to go back as well?
