Neues Update für Aerosoft’s Airbus X Extended

Aerosoft Airbus X ExtendedNächste Woche wird vermutlich das neueste Update für den Airbus X Extended mit der Nummer 1.15 veröffentlicht. In dem Forumseintrag gibt es neben einer Übersicht der bisherigen Versionen auch noch den Hinweis, dass in dem neuen Update eine vollständig lizenzierte Version des Programmes “Multi Crew Experience” enthalten ist, welche ausschließlich mit dem Airbus funktionieren wird.
Wer den Airbus noch nicht besitzt, kann ihn u.a. im simMarket erstehen oder sich das passende Review dazu durchlesen.

Alle Inhalte des Updates findet Ihr unter

The English and German tutorial has been modified to fit with the functions of this release.
o Some screenshots have been modified based on the MCDU PERF APPR page change
from MDA/DH to RADIO and BARO
o The GA (Go Around) Checklist / Co‐pilot functions have been extended (chapter
5.22).
o Also included is a tutorial part how to set up the MCDU in case of a diversion to an
alternate destination airport (ALTN) and how to work with alternate company routes
(ALT CO RTE). Details you will find in chapter 7.
o NPA (non‐precision approach) the chapter has been completely reworked and some
general explanations added (based on the information of a real A320 pilot).

Aircraft States
o The four aircraft states have been modified. All FCU settings of the COLD / DARK
state have been set to a minimum respectively to 000 whereas the TURNAROUND
state loads now exactly like after a “managed” ILS‐landing. The TAXI and TAKE‐OFF
states are fully “managed” and the first altitude for both states is set to 7.000 feet.

View System
o There were graphic “artefacts” respectively PFD, ND, UPPER and LOWER ECAM were
“greyed out” if WING VIEWS were set to ON and the user changed between FULL
SCREEN and WINDOW view mode. Those problems have been solved.
o MCDU (separate window)
o The left MCDU can be opened as a separate window. The key combination to open
this window has been changed and is now SHIFT+2.

FCU Displays
o Modified / enhanced to fit much more with the “real” Airbus.

Checklist‐ / Co‐pilot Functionality
o Speed Brake deployed / GND Spoilers Armed
o During the Landing CL the GND SPLRS are armed by the Co‐pilot. If the Speed Brakes
are deployed this is now recognized by the Co‐pilot.
o Cabin crew “Landing” announcement during Take‐off
o The code has been modified so that should not happen again.
o Panel Bar (day and night view)
o The day and night views are no longer depending on the overhead panel light but on
the FSX “current time” setting.
o Switch Positions
o The switch positions e. g. for TCAS and TILT, as well as for the various others
switches like signs, lights etc. have been newly programmed and the checklist as well
as co‐pilot function adjusted.
o Co‐pilot entering ALT values
o The ALT values (first altitude after Take‐off and GA altitude will be entered by the
co‐pilot in visible steps (with sound) and also considering the 100 and 1000 switch.
o Cabin‐crew Take‐off call
o The cabin‐crew Take‐off call now starts app. one plane length before the runway
holding point (instead of during taxiing to the runway).
o Doors automatically closing
o If the plane is “relocated” after loading the COLD/DARK state e. g. the gate is
changed, then FSX automatically closes the doors and the COCKPIT PREPARATION
checklist did not start. With this release the LEFT FRONT door then automatically is
opened again.
o Go Around Altitude: for some airports there is no GA flight path / altitude available
in the NAV DB. In such a case the co‐pilot sets the GA altitude automatically to 5.000
feet.

DATABASE
o New AIRAC 1309 included

Da bin ich mal gespannt, wie die Community auf MCE reagiert. Das Tool ist an und für sich gar nicht schlecht. Das Problem ist nur, dass es nicht multilingual ist. Alle Vista/Windows 7 Systeme “tiefer” als Professional müssen die englische Spracherkennung dadurch “erkaufen”, dass sie auf englisch umgestellt werden müssen (z.B. mit dem Vistalizator). Nur Vista/Windows 7 Professional kann die englische Spracherkennung auch in einer z.B. deutschsprachigen Version benutzen.

Die angekündigten Änderungen/Verbesserungen lesen sich schon mal gut. Hoffentlich findet das auch alles so statt… 😉

Mir war so, dass es wie bei FS2Crew nur mit Ultimate ohne Probleme ging?

Vistalizator ist die Antwort für alle ohne englisches OS und/oder Ultimate. Bei chip.de zum Download bereit.

Ja schon, aber vielleicht will nicht jeder sein deutsches Win 7 auf englisch umstellen… 😀

Ja, könnte durchaus sein. Ich habe ein bisschen die Übersicht verloren 🙂 Jedenfalls geht’s bei Win 7 Home Premium definitv nicht. Kann aber schon sein, dass erst ab Win 7 Ultimate die Spracherkennung unabhängig von der Betriebssystem-Sprache möglich ist. Jedenfalls dürfte eine solche Einschränkung ziemlich einschneidend sein, da im deutschsprachigen Raum sehr viele deutsche Home Premium Versionen im Einsatz sind.
