I just tried flying from the F.O seat and I noticed that the INS does not engage when selecting the Right Autopilot and the Right Alt Nav button on the F.O's side of the cockpit.

When I switched over to the left autopilot and the left seat it worked fine.

When I save a flight, I can't continue it. It says that the systems were initialized. However, the fuel has dropped to zero, systems don't work, not even the yoke and rudders. Thanks for looking into this.

Hmm! I have done half a dozen tests of this and it has worked fine every time. On several tests I even exited FSX, rebooted my computer (one time I shut it down for the night), and restarted the flight. All went well. It takes a few seconds for the initialization to finish, but then it comes good. I do have to reset the A/T and A/P, but that's all I have redo.

This a video of my resuming a saved flight:


EDIT: Try starting the L-1011 on the ground first (Active Runway). Start her up, take off, climb to an altitude hold (5000 feet or so) and let it stabilize. THEN load your saved flight. If my memory serves me correctly, this allows it to load the resumed flight with the A/P already ON. You still might need to make a few changes to the A/P though.

Hi Mark, thanks for your input. In my case, after initialization, the autopilot cannot be switched on (the main switch can't be moved), all the fuel gauges show 0 (By the way, I have found that I can't load fuel during flight, and the steering is impossible.)
I'll try the method that you've suggested. However, that would seem to me quite a detour.
Thanks
Chris

I have, on occasion, had the L-1011 load with initialising. When this happens, nothing works and there is no gear (if it is on the ground). I simply reload it if that happens and it has initialised.

Wow, that answer was fast! Have you been watching the Melbourne-finals? I have and I'm a very happy camper now. Cheesy
Your answer is interesting as my 1011 initialises after reload of saved flight all the time.
Maybe this has to do with my problem: I can't start the plane using CTRL E; not that this would bother me as I prefer doing it "the real way". What do you think?

Oops. Sorry, I thought it was NOT initialising! I had a few beers (which explains the fopah) down by the lake watching fireworks for Australia Day, so no, I'm not watching the Melbourne finals (whatever they are).

I'm not too worried about CTRL+E not working either, but I know that this might bother some. It's best to request these types of things in the 1011 Captain - Wish list forum. Grin

Whatever they are?? You must be kidding. It's one of the best tennis tournaments in the world. And Stanislas Wawrinka (from Switzerland) has won the finals! Grin
From your answer I understand that CTRL E doesn't work officially. Hmmm. I'll try the work around and maybe I'll reinstall.

Left Mouse Button click on the Parking Brake, then (1) drag it backwards to put the brakes on, or (2) push it forward to release the brakes.

Ahhhhh. The Australian Open! Gotcha. I'm not a tennis fan. And I stopped playing tennis when no one would play a game with me because of my vicious style. Sad

O.k. just simply like in real life. Why I couldn't find out that for myself ?!!  Angry

Thanks and sorry for that typical user-error !  Embarrassed

I see, Mark. Hope you had a wonderful time down at the beach. Here it is winter, grrrrr!!
Well, I've tried the work-around, but to no avail. When loading a saved flight, all my systems are down and cannot be started. It's a shame. I'm still thinking about a reinstall. Could that help?

You're welcome.

Don't worry about it, it happens most of us, including me. Wink

Not the beach. A smallish lake (about 6.5 kilometres to walk around it on the walking track). Yesterday was about 30C. But the mozzies (mosquitoes) were out and having a feast (on me). Fortunately I get over mozzie bites within 30 minutes or so!

Strange that it doesn't work for you. It works great for me. Sad

If I think of anything that will help, I'll let you know. Undecided

Dear CS

As last few days i am testing L1011 i have few things to share.
Listed items are not having any negative tinge, please find them as items for consideration, disscusion or future improvements.
L1011 with present system depth is already true FSX diamond ( which eventually can have a few more cuts Smiley )

1. Thrust reversers logic - in real plane thrust reverser logic was that after activating, 42% of net thrust was available. At 70 knots net thrust automatically was reduced to 33% to prevent hot air ingestion.
I have not noticed such logic on CS L1011.

2. APU - 15sec. time for APU ready state including door opening is not realistic time. I think, time about 1 min. would be realistic.

3. Electric load - always fuel pumps are giving big load for plane electrical system. As checked, switching them 'on' or 'off' does not influence electric system. I think same situation is with other consumers ( lights etc. )

4. Question - using alternate gear extension, should gear doors close automatically after landing gear dropping ?

5. Wing vortex - almost all flights and all weather conditions i can see wing tip votex effect. I think it is not realistic, as this effect appear only with certain conditions ( AoA and moisture in the air )

6. Fuel dump - would be very nice to have visual effect for fuel dumping. As noticed, jettison is done with rate aprox. 14000 lbs/minute per tank. I have found info that rate is 4500lbs/minute.

7. Fuel temperaturę logic - as noticed tank fuel temperaturę is changing very fast in quite big range, which is not realistic. In fact to decrease temperaturę of 100.000lbs of fuel by for example 20deg.C, we will need time up to few hours ( depends on FL and temperatures ).

8. Weather radar range display - regardless of max. range set ( 30,80,100 ), on screen we have always max 50nm.

9. Pressure system logic - as noticed, absolute wrong settings ( wrong baro press. and wrong alt. ) does not trigger any alarm, only complete depressurization is giving fault alarm. No alarm with wrong setting is correct logic ?

10. EPR - as found in original table and compare EPR value for given N1 there is quite big disscrepancy. Acc 'book' for example for N1=92.8% with outside temp. +14C EPR should be 1.539. As checked in FSX, when set N1=93% EPR is only 1.42, therefore it is not possible to follow real charts and tables.

You can use more than one INS Unit. Right A/P Switch and right Altn Nav switch will connect or disconnect second INS Unit to A/P.
How to integrate second unit - please read http://www.simufly.com/ins and CIVA INS Doc.

Artur,

Thank you for report. We have two comments for now.

Quote:
8. Weather radar range display - regardless of max. range set (
30,80,100 ), on screen we have always max 50nm.


We would gladly fix (if there is the issue to fix) it after we see some manual or photo with all range display variants.

Quote:
10. EPR - as found in original table and compare EPR value for given N1 there is quite big disscrepancy. Acc 'book' for example for N1=92.8% with outside temp. +14C EPR should be 1.539. As checked in FSX, when set N1=93% EPR is only 1.42, therefore it is not possible to follow real charts and tables.


We will consider those fixes only after we see tables or graphics of EPR AND N1 on idle, cruise and max for Rolls-Royce RB.211-22 engine.

Dear Tanya,

please see the document 1011PERFORMANCE.pdf in the file "1011perf.zip" available on flightsim.com/vbfs/fslib.php?searchid=20172370


That is a performance guide fot the L1011-1 /-50 /-100 with the RB211-22B engine.
Included are performance charts with EPR and N1 for different flight phases and meteorological conditions.

But I have to state clear that it is not my document, I have only found it and I cannot guarantee it's correctness. It seems to be right, though and it is definitely worth a look.
  

Regards and always happy landings,&&Max&&&&

Also on avsimrus there is an old Delta Manual for the L-1011 filled with performance charts.

Tanya,

The L1011 files on that website also contain information on the PMS used by Delta's L1011.

Not sure how many of you are on Facebook but here is a website that has an L1011 project that seems to be going pretty well. Their facebook page has a few videos that feature APU start up (from the outside) and some dry engine runs.

Here is their website
http://tristarhistory.org/l1011-n91011/

And here is their FB page where you can find their videos
https://www.facebook.com/TriStarHistory


-The APU really does start up quickly (about 20-25 seconds)

No they should not. The issue will be fixed in the next update.
As well as landing gear uplock mechanical release lever incorrect pulling direction.

Dear Tanya - Great, just Great !

Question - do you have in mind lights upgrade ?
Last night i was having night flight and :
- default taxi and landing lights are...  Cry, u can do so much better i believe Wink
- landing lights halo on fuselage is far out of real one
- as strobe lights are already customized, nice final touch would be to give them ground splash, so can see it from cockpit.
- those old beauties had rotating beacons if i am not mistaken - correct ?

Thanks Tanya

Is there a simple way to decrease the wheel friction?
I need a lot of thrust to get the plane moving and at idle it nearly stops immediately.
I have never used wheel brakes and reverse thrust so far because the wheel friction was high enough to stop the plane in roughly 1000m.

Decreasing the wheel friction would solve that problem and maybe it will it also make easier to set a takeoff thrust as mentioned in the manual (usually less than 95% N1)

I find that adding a window to the panel.cfg file will often not "take".

I am experienced in this and usually use FS Panel Studio. I can add a GPS, but others I like to use like a pushback gauge window or the commercial dbs airport GPS window just will not show up, even in the window listing for VIEW\instrument panel in the menu bar ??

Johann, everything is working as it is stated in the Manual, we have just tested. '1011 Captain' is rather complex aircraft, you should read Manual back and forth. E.g.  FLOWBAR illuminates when STANDBY POWER switch is ON - is this so? There are more things to do.

FS Panel Studio often messes up the windows, I open and edit in FS Panel Studio, but then make the changes manually in the panel.cfg, using FS Panel Studio to guide me with the locations on the screen or within the 2D window.

I did a test of FS Panel Studio with the CS L-1011 panel, and made some changes. After loading the L-1011 into FSX, my IAS Display, Heading Display, Course Display, etc. are blacked out (blank). The CIVA-INS 2D gauges, as well as the Animation and Weather Radar Screen panels are stretched or squashed in and look funny. This is a typical fault (NOT the blacked out instruments) of FS Panel Studio, and the reason I use info from it, but do the edits manually.

EDIT: Here is an example of what FS Panel Studio did to the Animation Panel to make it look squashed.

Default:
[Window01]
size_mm=159,345
background_color=0,0,0
window_pos=0.0,0.07
visible=0
render_3d_window=0
ident=11001
gauge00=animation!ac, 0,0,159,345


FS Panel Studio changes:
[Window01]
Background_color=0,0,0
size_mm=159,345
position=7
visible=0
ident=11001
render_3d_window=0
window_size= 0.155, 0.599
window_pos= 0.000, 0.070

gauge00=animation!ac,  0,0,159,345

Max - in fact there is simple trick for ground friction, and in fact it is working great with L1011.
U have to add 'PatchSIM1friction=Yes' to 'General' section of FSUIPC4.cfg

After that u will notice L1011 is much less sticky to ground which will reflect with taxi and landing roll characteristics. Recommend it.

Thanks for your reply Artur.
Unfortunately I don't find a FSUIPC4.cfg on my system.
Maybe it's because I only have an unregistered version of FSUIPC and that feature is for paying customers only.

I thought that maybe there is a way to change the friction in the aircraft.cfg, maybe at the [contact points]-section.

Edit: Did you mean the FSUIPC4.ini? I will check that on my next flight.

The stickiness shows also on starting up the engines: I can do that without having the brakes engaged. The aircraft doesn't move an inch, although it trembles when each of the engines is fired up. There should be forward movement to be realistic, shouldn't there. I realize that you can work around this using FSUPIC. However, this issue should not need an extra programme. I'm sure that CS can sort this out. Please. Thanks for making a great plane even better.  Smiley
Chris

By the way, I'm on my way from LGIR back to EDDF (L1011 LTU). I can only recommend LGIR. It's a great scenery to land the 1011 manually. I think I'm getting out of practice with that other new long-hauler...

I've just set the drag_scalar of the flaps and slats in the aircraft.cfg from 1.0 to 0.25: A really nice improvement.
There is no more unbelievable speed increasing when retracting the flaps, the climb gradient with flaps at 4° seems to be more realistic (around 1200fpm at initial climb with slowly inreasing speed to 250kts).
And for the approach I don't need 95% N1 anymore to keep the speed.

There is no FSUIPC.cfg, so I guess he does mean the FSUIPC.ini file. Wink

Bug:

1) FSX default ATC cannot adjust the COM radios, but I can manually.


Off-Topic:

How do you guys fly the L-1011 in European airspace without RNAV? I cannot construct a non-RNAV route (e.g. EDDL-HESH) in PFPX or FSBuild and the L-1011 has no INS (yet) and cannot load default FSX GPS flight plans.

Load an FSX plan as normal, then on the A/P, rotate the Nav Source Select Switch to FMS.

To add a GPS in the default panel.cfg, add the following:

[Window Titles]
Window00=Main
Window01=Animations Control
Window02=Weather Radar Screen
Window03=GPS

and

[Window03]
background_color=0,0,0
size_mm=303,283
position=2
type=special
visible=0
ident=GPS_PANEL
gauge00=fs9gps!gps_500, 0,0,303,283


If you want on in the CIVA_panel.cfg, add this:

[Window Titles]
Window00=Main
Window01=Animations Control
Window02=Weather Radar Screen
window03=INS Mode Select Unit
Window04=INS Control Display Unit
window05=INS ADEU
Window06=GPS

and

[Window06]
background_color=0,0,0
size_mm=303,283
position=2
type=special
visible=0
ident=GPS_PANEL
gauge00=fs9gps!gps_500, 0,0,303,283


Always backup the panel.cfg BEFORE making any changes!

Hope this helps.

I use the provided CIVA INS and have no problems to fly in RNAV-airspace with that.

Hi all,

Just landed an EGNX and noticed parked at the gate with the engines off and the APU running that I was still seeing the wheel spray effect from the main undercarriage wheels, is this an fsx issue or a CaptainSim one with this aircraft?

Thanks again for a super aircraft CaptainSim.
  

Happy Flying,&&&&David Phillips

Thanks, I didn't know the nav source switch actually worked given that there's no FMS on the aircraft. I actually thought it was a dummy switch. I also forgot about the CIVA panel.cfg as well.  Undecided

Changing the drag-scalar to 0.25 I accidentally found out that my autopilot entry is set to =0. However, my autopilot works as it should! Do you have the same .cfg autopilot entry? Could this have a consequence on how the aircraft is reloaded when continuing a saved flight? (I still have the problem that that feature doesn't work.)

I wouldn't change that, I believe CS coded their own Autopilot independent from the FSX default Autopilot. Turning that on may cause issues.

Thanks, Paul, good point. If that is the way it should be, I won't mess with it.

Max, unfortunately, the reduction of the drag-scalar to 0.25 doesn't seem to have changed anything. If it did, then only slightly. I still need a lot of thrust N1 to keep her on 140 knots.
What I just found out is: On descent at 14000 ft I reduced the speed and dialled 250 knots. I still had a sink rate of -2200. What happened was that the aircraft slowed down on her own to about 260 knots without using spoilers or changing the sink rate. There is a lot of drag in the air and on the ground.

Some observations

Over the weekend I looked at the Royal Airlines L1011 video from Just Planes and there was a very thorough cockpit presentation.

Some of the things I noticed are as follows:

1. The L1011 cruises with a 3 -3.5 degree pitch up (it was said that this is a specific characteristic of the L1011

2. The spoiler level moves in the cockpit when the DLC is active and it is only the 4 inward spoilers that move.

3. ATS is used only for Autolanding

4. While navigating with the INS as their primary nav source, the NAV light on the Autopilot control panel was illuminated. A GPS was also used but only as a backup.

5. The aircraft does not slow down very quickly (at least as quick as the CS version) after landing and the nose gear does not stay up in the air at low speeds (thats kinda obvious)

6. The engines sound from the cockpit isn't very loud but you can heard the distinct RR hum when T/O power is added. The APU also isn't heard from the cockpit but you are able to hear the sound of fans and other avionics.

7.  Typical cockpit lighting while flying at night only made use of instrument lights. During cruise, the utility lights are sometimes used as well as on the ground while at the gate.

Please use it for autolanding as well Smiley

It depends on landing conditions, there may be different landings both in real life and MSFS.

Hi,

When I try to cancel an engine start after pushing the start button, I cant push it a second time to get the off position which means ,if you forget to turn the packs off and you try to start ,the engines start buttons will stay in the on postion and the plane won't start.the only way the cancel the start is to restart the whole flight.
So to resume ,the engine start switches can be pushed on but not off.
Kind of hard to explain but I am sure you'll be able to figure it out.

Thanks

Strange! I find that if press the engine start switches and I have forgotten to turn the Packs and/or the ATM Selector Switches, the engines start procedure continues as normal once I have turned them all off. Undecided

Try pressing down  and holding on the start button for about 5 seconds and it should release.

Adding your GPS causes some of my previous problems with additional windows: adding your GPS manually, all the AP select windows are blank except VS; they work, but do not show up (white digits).

Also applies to NAVCOMM select windows. Switch to original panel, no problem

I had the same problem when I tested Ahmet's (asanal) panel.cfg last week. I'm not sure why it did it, but it did.
Ahmet's panel works fine now though, so that makes it even more weird. Cheesy

Post the contents of your panel.cfg and I'll see if I can spot the problem. Wink

Logic issue

Pressure system is dummy.
Can climb to FL360 without any pack engaged, without any setting done, and ... - no problem, no horn, no warning.

Panel problem fixed:

All my troubles were caused by FSPanel Studio. Editing the panel.cfg by hand worked great. I took your hint, created a dummy panel_Test.cfg to get everything right, then used the panel windows data from that file to paste into the operational panel cfg. file  -who knows!

Thanks for the help

Thanks for the help

It's a pity that it messes the panel.cfg's up, but I've been using FS Panel Studio for years, so I learned that trick a long time ago. Wink

The speed deviation pointer on the left side of the artificial horizon indicates the opposite of what it should. It shows "S" for slow when the airspeed is higher than set on the IAS selector and "F" for fast when the speed is below that set with the selector.

Good find! I never noticed it. Shocked

Is it just the warning light you see? Or is it the RAT you see when you look at the exterior view? When I restart a flight, I get the RAT Deployed warning light, but the RAT itself is not deployed. I always check this in the exterior view (F11) to make sure if it is/isn't. It has never been deployed. Clicking on the Annunciator Light Reset Button removes the warning.

I have noticed that sometimes autopilot knobs behave strange, for example cannot set speed or altitude because minimum step is not 1kts but 10kts, altitude is jumping in 2-300ft increments.
It is temporary, last short time, I switch view a few times, come back and then everything is normal.
Have anyone experienced same strange issue ?

Is there a way to increase the turning speed of the Gross Weight Selector knob? It's always quite long to turn in the correct weight.

I haven't noticed the RAT on the external model, but then I didn't look for it very hard.  I know I can reset the warnings on the pilot's panel, but I can't get rid of the RAT light on the engineer's panel once it comes on.  It's a small thing, but annoying none the less.

Michael, this is RAT logic.
RAT once deployed cannot be re-stowed.
Only ground staff can handle RAT, so from that point CS made it correctly.
Only it's pity that CS did not model RAT, so we can't see it outside spinning nicely.

I've never had this problem. Sorry.

Mine is always set to the correct weight. It does this all by itself. This is regardless of whether I change the fuel quantity in the Fuel Menu, or reload the plane after changing the Pax and Cargo settings in ACE, then reloading the aircraft in FSX. Undecided

The problem is not that the RAT can't be re-stowed. I understand that behaviour is correct.  The problem is that it deploys in the first place whenever a saved flight is loaded.

i dont know if that has been reported but to me, the L1011 feels very slow in turns and when taxiing.

When i use the rudder for taxi and make a full left deflection and then return to neutral, its still in the left deflection for quite a long time. It should return faster to its neutral position. I always have to counter-steer.

Then, i think the drag is a bit too high. I have to maintain about  60% thrust during a 2000 fpm descend to keep my speed at 280 (no dramatic winds here and the aircraft is neither too light nor too heavy).

Of course, i never flew the L1011 in real life so i cannot say whats correct and whats not but that doesnt feel right to me. Other than that, its quite a nice plane. Love the sounds (and of course the cockpit.. as always).

edit: GPWS would be nice and a cold and dark profile

I just downloaded and installed v1.1 and now FSX crashes during the L1011 system initializing phase.
I did a repair install, removed the versions and did a clean install of 1.1 with restarts in between.
Any advice?

Go to START > Captain_Sim > 1011 Captain > click on ACE.
At the opening screen of the ACE, you will see the Current version 1.1.0.0, and below that a box next to Automaticaly check for update when FSX started. UNCHECK (remove the tick from) that box! See image below:

http://i669.photobucket.com/albums/vv58/Markoz958/Remove_L-1011_update_zps6d5c92...

If that doesn't work, I'll give you another workaround to try. Wink

Edited:
Apr 2nd, 2014 at 5:50am: If you saw different instructions earlier on, I edited them.

For some crazy reason, the ACE shortcut wasn't showing in my START/Captain Sim/1011 Captain folder, but it is now. Undecided

I have had about for CTD with the SimuFly Delco Carousel IV-A INS v. 1.51, so I stopped using it.

The Captain Sim C-IVA INS is working great though.

Yep. navigate to the FSX\SimObjects\Airplanes\CS_L-1011\panel folder, open panel.cfg with Notepad.

Scroll down to [Window00], find the line: gauge02=l112.update!main, 0, 0, 1, 1
and comment (add 2 forward slashes (//)) it out so it looks like this:

[Window00]
background_color=0,0,0
size_mm=1024,768
window_size_ratio=1.00  
position=7
visible=1
ident=MAIN_PANEL
render_3d_window=0
window_size=1.000, 1.000
window_pos=0.000, 0.000
gauge00=l112.sys!main, 0, 0, 1, 1
gauge01=l112.sound!main,1,0,1,1,Captain_Sim\1011\sound.ini

//gauge02=l112.update!main, 0, 0, 1, 1

Then save the changes (CTRL+S).

If you can't do that, the download this zip file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/h4v7s72nhormpv4/CS_L-1011_panel.zip
It includes the modified panel.cfg with that line already commented and a copy of the original panel.cfg (panel_original.cfg)

Mark, I should have told you this is for FSX  and that I had already tried the panel.cfg thing. I sent CS a ticket today and will follow up on this forum if and when I get a fix. By the way, I also tried installing  this L1011 on another system and got the same error. It is getting hung up while processing the l112.sys.dll file. If someone reading this knows how to post their dll file here, I'd love to replace that file alone to see if it helps. Thanks

I tried both unchecking the updates and altering the panel.cfg file with no success.

FSX freezes about 5-10 seconds into a flight, then gives a generic message 'A fatal error occurred'.

I too and running FSX on a Win 7 machine. I was able to quickly switch to the spot view and found the aircraft booted in a gear-up configuration before the CTD.

Are you using the CIVA_panel.cfg (renamed of course), or is it the default panel.cfg?

I believe I am still using the default panel.cfg (which has the modified window 00). Do you think I should give the Civa panel a shot (I assume I rename it 'panel.cfg')? I'm at work right now, but can try it this evening.

Also, forgot to mention my other CS aircraft are working just fine (C-130, 707, 727, 737, 757, 767, 777, B-52).

The only difference between the two files is that th CIVA_panel.cfg has the SimuFly Delco CIVA INS gauges in it. You would then have the choice of using them or the new Captain Sim CIVA INS.

Try running FSX as administrator. START > Games > Right click on Microsoft Flight Simulator X > select Run as administrator.

Good morning guys...CS sent e a url to a new l112.sys.dll file. I replaced the file in the panel.cfg  but it didn't fix the problem. They say they are working on the problem. In my case, when the "fatal error" pops up and I go to the "details" screen, it says the app name is fsx.exe and the fault module name is l112.sys.dll  Is this the same for you TechRep? While I'm waiting for the freeze, I hear something that sounds like gear of flaps changing position. Maybe it's the gear trying to come down. I also have the old Delco CIVA that I use on my 707 and 727. Is the thinking that this could be a problem?

I will have to check this evening. I did note there were several items listed under the details during the fatal error. I'll get a screen grab and post...

First of all thank you for the update. I've just installed 1.1.
However, I'm terribly missing the GPS. I installed it in the panel.cfg, I can open it by means of the instrument menu, but it doesn't show the flightplan that I assigned (FSX). It would really be a pity not to have a working GPS. Could anyone check whether theirs is working? Or was that the idea: either a GPS or an INS? I really hope not.  Lips Sealed

If you load a flight plan from the FS Flight Planner, it will be displayed in the GPS! BUT you need to switch the INS ON FIRST, otherwise the plan gets deleted from the INS, the MAP and the GPS! So to fly the flight plan if you have already loaded before switching the INS on, simply reload the it after you have.

Here is a short video showing what happens:

Still no cure for the CTD. Working with tech support. Since I don't know if my email reply will be read:


-Removed and reloaded v1.1. = CTD
-Replaced l112.sys.dll = CTD
-Loaded L1011-EGLL-LTBA-test-3-4(pg2) = Error loading GPS engine, flight plan will not be used = CTD -Renamed l112.update.dll & l112.wxr.dll to _l112.update.dll and _l112.wxr.dll = CTD

All crashes occur 5-10 second into flight initialization. If in spot view, landing gear is up. Engine sound is present. No errors given other than 'a fatal error occurred' See attached pic for error details.
When starting a free flight with the L1011 in known clear condition, the environment loads as if in dense fog. But if I start a free flight with another aircraft and switch to the L1011, weather remains clear.

Had no issues with v1.0.

All other SC and non CS working fine on this machine.
*I replaced my hard drive three months ago and loaded a fresh copy of Win 7 and FSX at that time. I have also slaved in my old HDD, installed v1.1 on FSX on the drive and get the same result.

i hear that also from time to time, but it seams to be a fsx problem as many other addons have it too. what i do then is switching fsx sounds off/on using the "Q" key, problem is gone then till nextime it jump in.

L-1011 V1.1

Battery switch wont isolate the battery (ground power and APU are off), it isolate only some busses but some lamps and or indikators are still glowing, the fsx default gyro for example is still powered, resulting in a empty battery after some time.

I would not say that phantom sound problem comes from FSX, as other planes do not have such issue.
In my case switching sound off/on does not help.

Also still front wheel is touching runway in very slow pace - approx. 10s after main gear.

The phantom sounds are mostly gone for me. It is only every now and then that I hear them. On the last 2 flights, after shutting the engines down, there was no phantom sound.

ohh even a much more advanced 777 (the company name have 4 letters, begin with "P", end with a "G") have it, if it is the problem what i belive it is... but if switching sound using Q wont help, it seams to be another issue.

Now after my departure with the update (and approximately 1000 flights before with 1.0) I have the following remarks:

-I miss the DME Update in the new INS (I really do!)

-Taxi drag on ground is still extremely high (55-75% thrust to get the baby moving)

-Slats drag is still high, the speed really jumps up after retracting slats

-In the new INS it is not possible to cycle the Waypoint Selector between 0 and 9 with the Keybord

-After entering Waypoint coordinates into the INS they change by up to 01'!

-Turning the Waypoint Selector too quick after entering new coordinates, the new coordinates will be deleted.

I hope that this is all until the landing.
  

Regards and always happy landings,&&Max&&&&

L-1011 V1.1

INS CDU VC operation, DATA Selector knob:

turning the knob is possible using left right mouse clicks or mouse wheel operation.

Problem:
the turn knob gives correct commands to the CDU while turning it using the mouse wheel, not while turning it using left / right mouse clicks, then only the knob is switched, but the CDU wont react / recognise it.

On the L1011 CTD.....I just removed the fsx.cfg file and restarted fsx. It comes up in the introductory screen as if this is the first time loaded. I went directly to the L1011 ready to go in Seattle and it came up for the very first time ever. Now I will have to go through my old fsx.cfg to see what is causing the problem. It was tweaked by the online service whose name I've forgotten. I already have my display settings set back to normal.  Hope this helps some of you. It's great to fly this bird at last.

Mine seems to need to be right clicked, left clicked, right clicked again, OR left clicked, right clicked, left clicked again (depending on which way I am rotating the knob) before they change.
Sometimes it works like it should work.

Two more things on my previous post:

-How do I turn on the Overhead lightning without using Center Console Flood?

-How do I turn on the Autopilot panel lightning without using Center Console Flood?

I have the phantom sound after shutting down the engines. But pressing "Q" twice helps, just like with most other planes too.

The descending of the nose after touch down is much better now, thank you!

now i got this special "phantom engine sound" (which sound more like airconditioning from the packs) which isnt stopable using the "Q" key !
...it is different to the common phantom engine sound iam used to with other planes, it sound different and is not changing frequency or volume when switching to exterrior view.

for turning the overhead doom light i found the knob on the right hand overhead side right of the other 2 overhead light switches.

other light switches incl. AP panel lights i found left of the pilot, right of the copilots center panels (incl. doomlights) or right below the parking brake for the engines and pedestral panels. there is also a seperate light switch for the engineers instruments, left below his chart table.

I know. Sorry that I wasn't clear enough but what I meant was the backlight of the designators, not only the backlight of the indicators. Those should both be turned on the same way but unfortunately they don't.
Only the indicators are turned on sepperately and the designator (the writings below and above the indicators) are only backlightend with the Flood Lights on.

INS Issue:

L1011 v 1.1 - default Carousel IV-A INS.

With FSX flight plan loaded and selecting lower right screw (green indicator on) waypoints sequence and load automatically and until reaching page 2, waypoint 8.  Instead of sequencing from waypoint 8-9, unit sequences from 8-0, returning to initial initialization position.  

INS will then sequence from waypoint 0 to waypoint 1 (of page 2)  and continue until once again reaching waypoint 8 on page 2 and again returning to waypoint 0 (initialization position), restarting the closed loop.

To sum up, all is normal 5-6, 6-7, 7-8, etc.  Until reaching waypoint 8 on second page (possibly third page as well, I am currently testing this), then instead of sequencing 8-9 it sequences 8-0, returning to initial initialization position.

I have confirmed this on three flights, and am currently test flying, you can manually exit the loop by entering waypoint change 0-9 and then it will once again sequence normally until reaching waypoint 8 on page 3.

Same here. Did some test flights after my post in the GENERAL Folder concerning the INS, and the described behaviour is exactly what i experience, too.  Embarrassed

Also just noted I can rotate the INS selector knob if the INS is still off, but rotating when its on causes the CTD
(I turned it to POS, then turned it on. Entered present position, set it to 'ALIGN', but when I rotated to STATUS...

That is one very strange problem you are having. Sad

Can you use the 3rd party (SimuFly) CIVA INS without getting a CTD? I would assume you will need to leave the CS CIVA off, and not touch it.

I guess that's not what you really want, but at least you might be able to do a flight in it. Sad

L-1011 1.2 GYRO_SOUND & Battery charge...

for beeing able hearing some system sounds after switching the battery on, i made the GYRO_SOUND in sound.cfg louder (maximum_volume = 10000).

Problem:

The GYRO_SOUND only stops playing (while switching the battery off), if i go to fsx display options and toggle the ai traffic from 0% to on.
If i change to another livery, the problem return, an i have to repeat switching ai traffic off/on, otherwise the GYRO_SOUND continue playing while the battery is switched off.


The battery still loose charge while consuming GROUND, APU or GEN- power.

EDIT: iam sorry, i just needed to learn more about the eletrical system  Shocked

...i second the request having an Cold&Dark option using ACE, independent pack/airconditioning sounds would be nice.

I know, it is not a Captain Sim issue at all,

but perhaps you have an idea:
After update to 1.2, the INS works great with FSX flight plans. Thanks to CS for this quick update!
But the ATC software i use (ProATC) injects a new flight plan for Approach, depending on the current weather conditions and the runway in use at the destination airport.
At that Moment the approach plan is injected, FSX crashes. Using the default GPS with other CS aircraft works great that way, so i guess it's a problem with the INS handling of FSX flight plans. Is there a possibility to load a "new" flight plan on the run? Is anybody else using ProATC and has similar Problems?
Would be great to fly this bird all the way using my ATC Software!

Markoz, I loaded the Simufly v1.51, and it doesn't crash, but I can't get the INS to illuminate when turned on.

If I loaded the Simufly correctly, should I still be seeing the default INS?
(because I am, that is to say I can see both INS's)

The aircraft doesn't follow the FSX flight plan.
Situation: KMIS - TSJS
The plane should go to the south-east (140°) but as soon as I turn on the GPS, it wants to follow the opposite way, althought the line of the flight path in GPS is magenta.
Does anyone experience the same issue? Can anyone help?
Thanks.
Chris

Markoz, I loaded the Simufly v1.51, and it doesn't crash, but I can't get the INS to illuminate when turned on.

If I loaded the Simufly correctly, should I still be seeing the default INS?
(because I am, that is to say I can see both INS's)

Press SHIFT+1 to get the SimuFly CIVA INS working.

Yes. Both are available for use! Don't turn the Captain Sim CIVA INS on, leave it alone to see if it doesn't CTD.

Have you turned the NAV SOURCE SELECTOR Switch to FMS?

Yes, of course. That's when the aircraft starts to turn in the opposite direction. Never had this issue in v1.0 or v1.1. Do you know a remedy? Just to make sure: Before making an FSX flightplan, I turn on the INS: Turn the big knob on the left to the right and that's it? Or would I have to first align the INS?
Thanks for your support, Mark.

Just did a successful flight from MKJP to KMIA using the INS. I conclude that you have to align the INS and load the FSX flightplan and then switch to Nav in order to follow the flightplan on the GPS, which is no problem now that I know. In addition, I've learnt some basics of using an INS. It's fun. I love the 1011. Well done, CS!!  Smiley Looking forward to the 500. Wink

Strange. I can load a flight plan before aligning and the INS will still fly the GPS flight plan without any trouble. Undecided

Strange indeed. Just did another flight KMIA - TTPP in Corina's beautiful BWIA livery. It didn't catch the track in spite of aligning the INS. It once again wanted to go the opposite direction. This is a real bummer after the other successful flight. Maybe that's what made the difference: I had flown with another plane to MKJP, there swapped aircraft (to 1011) without leaving FSX, and so it worked.  Cry

...the aligning process also want that you enter the current position coordinates, not shure but i think if you do that and save the flight, the position data is still stored after loading it.

i wonder if position precision is depending on align quality (as in the real CIVA), as it start to be rdy (green light) as it count down to code "55", but if you wait longer, it count down to code "15" and would have a better position precision while in flight, is that modeled ?

I also would like to have the different system failiures as they can occour in the external freeware INS.

Just did another test:
KMIA, position: runway 12; I did the whole start-up procedure there including INS alignment. Loaded FSX-flightplan KMIA-TTPP. Took off, made sure I was directly on the magenta line, turned on AP at about 2500 ft and then switched NAV selcector to FMS: Heading changed from 145 to 298 and along the route from 165 to 297. Strange. Why 297?? Probably the airport of origin, in this case KMIA.

did you modified the panel.cfg regarding fsx default gps ?

...the real plane had no gps, not shure but maybe that is the reason for the current behavior ?

Adding the default GPS in the panel.cfg makes no difference to route tracking. I have it added to my panel.cfg (it was the first thing that I did after installing v1.1) and it has no affect on following the route.

You would need to have edited the CIVA, [Window03] (or maybe the [VCockpit21] and/or [VCockpit22]) entry, but I pretty sure you would know if you did. Grin

Mh, what does the text page say about this? Clicking the right screw in the middle of the INS 2D panel opens the flight plan page, there you can see which waypoint is active and where the INS is tracking the plane.

I uninstalled and reinstalled. Same problem. This time I tried without modifiying the panel.cfg.
And again, when I switch to FMS, the heading goes directly from 120 (KMIA rwy 12) to 305, which is back to KMIA.
I aligned down to 4. With shift Z I got my position and before aligning (still on stby) I dialled in the position with insert-button after both the longitude and the latitude (of course in the POS position). Then to NAV and the big dial to the very right position. Is there anything that I forgot?
Thanks for your support.

I'm on a successful flight at the moment. Things look really promising as I think I've found my mistake.
My problem area: Dialling in the position before aligning:
The latitude has 5 digits to complete, the longitude has 6. This means (I'll explain this with the hope that I'm not the only one Embarrassed blush, blush) that I have to first dial 0 for the longitude. E.g. W77 34 05 is W07734.0
I hope I'll arrive at my destination safely. I'll do some more test flights tomorrow.

important is the degree position... if you enter to much or to less numbers, you shift the degree position. If you have a closer look on the INS display, you can identify it. Geographic coordinates are formated in degree°/minutes′/seconds″

example: 78° 56′ 34,12″

...but settle down, you wasnt the only fool Grin

Another thing to take into account is that when entering the coordinates for alignment, you might be forgetting a ZERO.

For example, if pressing SHIFT+Z brings up N32o 54.12' W97o 2.20', I will enter N 3 2 5 4 1 INSERT W 9 7 0 2 2 INSERT. The ZERO is not shown in the WEST coordinates listed after pressing SHIFT+Z, and it is easy to forget to add it. Forget that ZERO, and the L-1011 is guaranteed to head off in the wrong direction when you try to follow the route. Grin

Thank you for the quick update
I was one of the users that was having CTD and you responded extremely quickly to fix the problem!

Just one question- I now do not have Cold & Dark on start up...

Do I need to save it in a cold state and reload that every time?
Thanks again for the fix, I really appreciate it..

Hi there,

when I make up a flight before starting it my Simulator crashes immediately after the loadingbar shows 100%. When I start a flight without loading a flightplan it works fine. But then I wanted to load flightplan during the flight (I was at the gate), so everything works fine til i deactivate the "FMS" mode then it crashes (like everytime before the landing when I have a flightplan loaded).

I hope anyone can help me

I have V 1.2 and tried already a reinstall.


EDIT: I think I have fixed it by Markoz suggestion some posts ago

L-1011 V1.2 CIVA INS automated page shift
Reply #138 - Apr 25th, 2014 at 11:26pm
Print Post  
Hi there,

the automated page shift function of the CIVA INS is working as it should if doing the 1st flight after initial loading the plane the 1st time in the sim session.

Problem:
If you are about to do a second flight then, while using the same game session, loading a new flight plan with enough waypoints that would require a page shift, and checking the INS 2D popup, you see that the INS have the wrong (from a following page) or no waypoints selected as active. it only switch to the right 1st leg if disableing auto page change. After switching back to auto page change then, the problem return.

Try pressing the WY PT CHG > 1 > 2 > INSERT and see if that sets it to the start of the plan. That's what I do (and it works).  Wink

i try`d that allready and it wont work if using a longer flightplan which require page autoshift, as by selecting autoshift, the flightplan page got shiftet to the last position it was on the flight before.

You can find the information on page 40 of the ‘1011 Captain’ FLIGHT MANUAL Part II – Aircraft and Systems (csl011_manual2.pdf):

7. NAV Source Select Switch
Navigation sources for autopilot:
1) VOR (see the next item on how to use)
2) FMS - autopilot in HDG mode tracks CIVA-INS flightplan.
- HDG Switch should be engaged
- NAV Switch will be automatically deselected
- Heading Bug on Captain's HSI will be controlled by navigation system.

3) ONS - autopilot in HDG mode tracks 3rd party CIVA-INS flightplan, if it is installed
- INS Nav Mode Selector should be engaged

So switch it over to FMS Wink

ONS is if you want to use the SimuFly Delco Carousel IV-A INS instead of the Captain Sim CIVA INS.
I do not know what ONS stands for. Perhaps it stands for Other Navigation System? Cheesy

tebsu, suggest try disabling the yaw dampers on the captain's side overhead panel, see if that help your turn rate

no, its not about the yaw dampers. i usually fly the approach by hand (and by that, i mean from the point where i start to descend) and i have a hard time to intercept certain courses while i have no problem at all with all my other planes. I do know, every plane is different but i have no plane that is as slow turning as this one and i have quite a lot of planes. The L1011 is known to have an excellent maneuverability but i see the exact opposite here. I would not complain if that is what keeps me from flying this aircraft at the moment. Other than that, i am really happy about the L1011. As long as you do not fly anything complicated and only straight in approaches, you might not even notice the problems i see there.

I am trying to figure out the logic behind why the speed indicator on the Autopilot panel goes to ALPHA and the speed dramatically goes to 140kts or so when ever landing flaps are selected. Can anyone help me out with this?

Help, please!
I was really satisfied to be using the INS. No problem on short flights. However, on longer flights I started to get CTDs. For example yesterday, I flew from KDEN (flightbeam) to KJFK (FSDT). I had three CTDs until I finally made it to New York. This is really stressful: never forget to save your flight every 5 to 10 minutes. Starting the flight again is stressful as well, as I have to quickly start the engines again in flight lest I fall from the sky. Next flight: KJFK - EIDW. First CTD near Boston, second CTD some time later (I went shopping in the meantime). This is a real bummer. Can anyone help me? Mark, do you know a remedy? Thanks for sharing with me.

I continued the flight to EIDW and about 10 min into the flight the third CTD happened.
I then checked my system. I did the same route with a certain t7 and I added the round-trip flight, everything in 4x speed. No problem. My system is quite stable at the moment. Therefore I think it is the INS of the 1011 that makes problems. Does anyone experience the same troubles?

Hi Chris.

I have no idea why this is happening to you. I have done many long haul flights in the L-1011 (in both FSX and P3D) without ever seeing a CTD.

Try this. Open the ACE for the L-1011 and remove the checkmark (tick) from Automatically check for update when FSX started (see image below):

http://i669.photobucket.com/albums/vv58/Markoz958/Remove_L-1011_update_zps6d5c92...

Note. This should really only cause a CTD when you first load the L-1011 into FSX, and not later because it does the check for the latest update when it loads into FSX.

In the panel.cfg, it should look like this:

[Window00]
background_color=0,0,0
size_mm=1024,768
window_size_ratio=1.00  
position=7
visible=1
ident=MAIN_PANEL
render_3d_window=0
window_size=1.000, 1.000
window_pos=0.000, 0.000
gauge00=l112.sys!main, 0, 0, 1, 1
gauge01=l112.sound!main,1,0,1,1,Captain_Sim\1011\sound.ini
;gauge02=l112.update!main, 0, 0, 1, 1


or this: //gauge02=l112.update!main, 0, 0, 1, 1[/i]

If it doesn't work (which it doesn't for me), then comment it out manually (either the ; or // will work).

If it is already unchecked/commented out, and you still get the CTD, I suggest that you reinstall the L-1011 (use the repair option) and see if that fixes the problem.

Just recently in the L1011 on a fresh installed FSX. For some reason I only hear the engines, no cockpit sounds (Fire Warnings, Click Noises, Seatbelt/Smoking Signs, etc) I tried loading my CS 707 and its the same way. I tried the fix for the msvcr71.dll file and it doesn't work. Any suggestions?

When you start FSX, have you accepted (YES and YES for both windows) the sound gauges, the cs.sound.dll, for both aircraft?

If you go to the fsx.cfg (enter %AppData%\Microsoft\FSX\fsx.CFG in the Windows Run command to open the fsx.cfg), you should have two entries similar to this:

J:\Flight Simulator X\Captain_Sim\707\cs.sound.dll.nqienoeouinoabhqqwhanqekwlwatteninbzwazc=1
J:\Flight Simulator X\Captain_Sim\1011\cs.sound.dll.kuqkazehreehhbozirinnrqqrzkrkatuwlqotize=1

Note: Do not copy and paste mine, your locations and codes (the letters that follow the cs.sound.dll) will differ to mine.

I do not think that the msvcr71.dll makes any difference (I've never had to use that fix).

Like CS L1011 very much. Only two short questions:

Using the Captain Sim INS with FSX flightplan works fine. But is it possible to fly a direct to a waypoint on another page? For example, flying online I´ve got a direct through an ATC-controlled airspace. But the waypoint is not on the same page, so I tried change waypoint 0-9, position to waypoint 9. But I need the waypoint 3 on the next page. How can I do that?

One problem: After INS Aligning I get Green light and switch to Nav when PI is down to 1 or 0. But when I try to enter a waypoint manual, the red warn light is shown and I can not type in a waypoint. With Civa-INS and the 727 I didn´t have this problem. What I´m doing wrong?
I want to enter the waypoints to prevent the direct problem Wink above.

Ok, I did this now:
1. INS to Standbye
2. Create a flightplan with FSX, I used the same airport for departure and destination. My flightpan only has 2 waypoints.
3. Set POS and Align the INS.
4. Change the waypoints 1 and 2, add more waypoints as needed. Now I can use all waypoints and fly directs online if ATC wants me to do this.

The original flightplan I can made with simroutes, simbrief or others, save it as fsx-flightplan. Then I opened it with the CIVA-INS Converter and make textfile with the positions of all waypoints. After printing, I could easy use all waypoints when flying.

A flight online from LGKR to EDDL needs 2 hours 20 minutes. INS works fine.

A lot of TCAS addons can be found for free. But most of them do not work during online flying. So I bought a radar from Eric Marciano. It´s not a TCAS, but flying online very helpfull to locate airplanes next to the flight path.

Landing in EDDL during really bad weather conditions are a little bit difficult, but the L1011 captured LOC and GS very smooth and landing was fun. Also the nose up during roll out seems normal.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nX0jwtTWuQc&feature=youtu.be. Looks like the real plane did on DVDs I saw.

The L1011 is an amazing airplane and well done by Captain Sim.  Smiley

Glad you got it working okay.

I also believe that Captain Sim got the length of time the nose stays up before touches the runway correct!

I have watched quite a few videos of L-1011's landing, on YouTube, and the delay in those videos are either the same length of time as the Captain Sim L-1011, or longer! I did mention this same thing in another post, including links to some videos on YouTube, somewhere in the 1011 Captain forums.

Yes, I´m sure landing is correct. Maybe the trim or payload is wrong.

Fuel:
If I need 24000 kg fuel I do this:
Center Tank left 8000 kg
Center Tank right 8000 kg
Left external tank 4000 kg
Right external tank 4000 kg
Center Left (8000) = Center Right (8000) = (External Left (4000) + External Right (4000)

This works fine, tank to engine configuration. But with tanks full I´do not know how to use the fuel. Do you think it´s similar to the B747,
Take Off Tank to Engine Configuration
In Flight Only Center Tank Left and Right. If
Center Tank Left = Center Tank Right = (External Left + External right)
I change again to Tank to Engine configuration. Is this the correct procedure?

When the tanks are full:

Left Tank = 54,100 LBS (24,542 KGS)
Right Tank = 54,100 LBS (24,542 KGS)
External Tank 1 = 25,700 LBS (11,659 KGS)
External Tank 2 = 25,700 LBS (11,659 KGS)
External Tanks combined = 51,400 LBS (23,318 KGS)

Because the combined weight of the fuel in both external Tanks is not too much less than the weight of fuel in the Left or Right Tank, I use Tank to Engine all the time. Wink I'm not sure if that's the real way it's done though. Undecided

If I got so low on fuel that the External Tanks ran dry (laving only about 5,400 LBS (2448 KGS) of fuel), I would simply open all the crossfeed valves (or try and land on two engines). But I would really want to be on the ground before they got that low! Shocked
I try to land with around 20,000 LBS (9,072 KGS) or more of fuel!

Hi everyone,

I seem to have a problem that nearly nobody has,
when i start a flight, everything is going quite as it should, but around half flight from for example London to Schiphol engine #2 keeps quitting. On that route I'm always able to make an emergency landing on my destination, but I don't like the fact that it's always an emergency landing.

I always start the engines by watching the engine-start video on youtube.

Am I doing something wrong or should I re-install the plane?

GV.

BTW: are there totally no checklists available?

Are you opening the crossfeed valves?
