Hi Captain Sim.

I have downloaded the latest version of the 707 and I'm taking her "out for a spin" right now. So far everything is going very well. I'm impressed and I feel it just got a whole lot better. Smiley

I fully agree with you. I was waiting for this release since FSX came out. Cannot wait until the first liveries are out and of course, for the C-Model...


Wondering if captainsim is still interested in improvement proposals...

Hi Mark,


1-I think, I should remove 1,1 then install 1.2. Is this correct way?
2- Change Panel cfg.file with Civa cfg.file

3- Reinstall INS

Thanks for the latest update, but would have been nice to see the stab trim animation corrected... considering how accurate you guys like to make everything, that seems like a pretty big visual detail to get wrong.
Don't get me wrong, I have nothing but the utmost respect for what you guys do, but accuracy is the reason why I think most of us shell out good money for your products.
 I hope this is seen as only constructive criticism, as that is all it is meant as.

Great news, thanks for the HU here.

afmoose, I hope you've dropped a ticket concerning this complain because the forums aren't intended to issue support items.

I'll update the 1.1 bug list to 1.2 and maybe you can report back there how the ticket went through. Would be much appreciated.

Thanks Captain Sim for the very fast update.  Smiley

So please check in your profile if it was processed in any way.

Has anyone seen the updated manuals? The "manual" folder is missing now.  Undecided

I recommend downloading them now from your profile but the older installers placed them in the Captain Sim folder when installing the plane.

Help me, but the DME readings are different now but still strange.


Or am I misinterpreting something here?

Below 100nm looks fine



But the pressurization is looking good so far. Please implement that on the 727, 757 and 767 too.  Cool
I'm not joking, they all have inop systems currently. But, one after another of course. No need to hurry.

I downloaded the manuals shortly after I downloaded the 707 v1.2. It appears that manuals 1 and 3 are the updated ones, PART II – Aircraft and Systems is not (it is dated 17 August, 2010).

I don't think there was ever a manuals folder inside my FSX\Captain_Sim\707. I usually make a new folder named  manuals and then extract the manuals from the zip files to there. I have done this to all my Captain Sim products.

Ok, maybe I have the same habit and it's so much habit that I can't remember.
I still have the 1.1 installer and will check it, just in case. I've checked, you were right. Nasty habit.  Grin

What do you say about the DME readings, Mark? Do they make sense to you when above 100nm?

It appears that the numbers rotating are only the tenths of a mile. The first digit is a zero(0) and I think the second was a one (1). Neither of them changed when the distance to the VOR was less than 100.

I'm flying the CS 752 at the moment, so I can't be absolutely sure. I'll edit this post after I get back to the 707. Wink

No hurry, get those passengers on the ground first without breaking the nice 752.
By the way, look at the cabin Alt on that bird, Mark. One item on the 757 bug list. Should not be above 6000ft in cruise but is well over 10.000 without any warnings.
Details here: http://www.biggles-software.com/software/757_tech/air_systems/pressurization.htm

I've just clicked around in the 1.2 707 and maybe gathered some items.
I'll set up a new post 1.2 thread then to discuss and report.
She's surely getting better and after this very fast 1.2 release some patience might be a good idea.

Thanks again, Captaim Sim and await our input.  Smiley

Hi CoolP.

These can be for you v1.3 bug list, once you get it started. Wink

I did a flight in the 707 and did a study of the DME. It works up to 109 miles.

From left to right on the DME gauge. First digit is Hundreds. Second digit is Tens. Third digit is singles. The Tens digit rotates up to 100 where it becomes a zero. It never rotates higher than that.
