"ADD DRAG" Message

Just wondering if the new S8 FMGS software will include new messages displayed on the PFD such as ADD DRAG.

Whenever someone is high on profile and the 'More Drag' message pops up. I tell them that the plane wants them to wear a dress. No one has gotten it yet.

The only thing so far I have seen on FSL aircraft was DECELERATE. Only had MORE DRAG irl a number of times. The latter is part of S8 1 and 2 but I would imagine you should also have it with older software versions already.

So I assume MORE DRAG will be included in the upcoming S8 update.

Which post leads you to this assumption? :)

We can only hope. 

He's just trying to goad the devs into responding.

Actually you should already have it Marc with older software than S8 1/2on PFD when:

DES mode is engaged, idle is selected, and either:
‐ The aircraft is above the vertical profile and the predicted intercept point
of the theoretical profile is at less than 2 NM from the next ALT CSTR,
or
‐ In auto speed control and the aircraft enters a speedbrake decelerating
segment.

Try it out! If I get DECELERATE with FSL older versions, MORE DRAG should also appear in older versions if you meet the above parameters.

More drag discussed a long time ago together with a few other missing items. See here. The intercept arrow is working:

Were any of you guys able to get the ADD DRAG message? I did the prerequisites and still have not been able to display the message, is it modelled?

Hi Marc I tried yesterday, meeting all the requirements too, to get the MORE DRAG (not ADD DRAG) message, but it didn't appear. I also tried the other 2, the TOO STEEP PATH message or make the energy circle appear, same result. They may or may not be included in the last update.
