So far, I feel somewhat pleased with the way the new site's software has turned out! HOWEVER, I really think the download section (replacing the library??) has turned out to be "the PITS!"
When I used to look for a new aircraft to download, the entries required were quite simple.....
Complete aircraft, textures, panels, utilities
include such words for search
exclude any of the following words
and the list goes on to give me a narrowed search area of what I am looking for!
Now, I see a search starting out with A's such as Airbus and it continues on.................................................................
no key word choice, no exclusionary words, just begin your search here
Maybe I just missed something along the way?? The site has been down long enough, that I had to search for aircraft elsewhere. The site I used was not as
simple and straightforward as our old library's search window, BUT, a whole lot better than the new systems aircraft offering listings!!
I just looked it up in Controls Options, and sure enough, nothing comes up, so button 3 is currently unassigned. I tried another flight, this time with the default A320, and this time (making sure not to press it), everything worked fine. Cheers,
Glad to see most of the ole gang here. I'll reserve comment on the new software until the growing pangs are worked out. It's obviously a step in a necessary direction. Not sure if anyone has mentioned, but since most comments center around file searches and downloads, might I inquire as if there will be a mention of the file size in the top posting of the potential download file? Many patrons still have to judiciously manage their storage space. Just a thought. As aged as I am, I found the site ultimately navigable and not as daunting as some would make it appear. The behind the scenes workers have a tremendous undertaking relocating the vast old "site". They deserve a break and some time. Remember, this software is new to them as well.. Blue skies...
Ok, let's give it a new try...
So I looked for the old stuff from the "Cook Islands"... Still no "zip-dive", no good screenshots (like before) and no satisfieing information about the files available.
Flightsim.com ist still totally worthless! Horrorable!
But... great with good download speed - but if you don't find anything to download - what's it worth it?
I have the TM Airbus stick and just tried a flight with Autopilot and didn't have a problem when selecting Button 3, or button 4. Button 3 for me is "Reset Cockpit View". The A/P stayed connected.
Just to confirm, when you Filter for "Assigned" and click to "Search by Input" and push your button 3, does it look something like this? There is nothing else that comes up?
Hi everyone. AIG says in their forum that i have to use tfs's model. If using their model would be an option i think they would have mentioned it in my post there. He says they may have to create a workaround in their next update if the file does not reappear 🙂 Strange that it should just vanish like that. It is the same with tfs333 and 346. Thx for all the suggestions guys 🙂
