I have tried flying this plane multiple times but it keeps getting engine fires and I have tried everyway of trying to manage it but it doesn't work does anyone know a way to remove the engine fires from its code or is there a better constellation

This is simulator, not game.
IMHO, Constellation is OK, You must manage mixture and watch engines temperature. With this plane I was able land and then took off from Paro airport.

I figured out how to remove the engine fires from the aircraft code it's in the nasal mask folder and it disabled the engine fires i figured out on my own no thanks to you
p.s you're a knob

Is there for example some green and/or yellow arcs and/or red lines on the engine instruments? I would guess that continuously running them too hot or just about too hot would be a problem. (I am just speculating here.)

Hello

This plane flies very well.

To avoid engine fire you have to take care about cylinder head temperature (it must not be over 235°C (continuous) and must not be over 270°C)
For adjust temperature you need to set the engines cowls flaps open/close and adjust the power.
You also need to focus on the bmep to keep a good combustion.

If you already had fire, you got a lamp indicates that, on the engineer panel. So you have to set manifold to zero, mixture to zero.

It is a very pleasant plane, i begin to modify its to get a starliner (as it said, work in progress) (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1NWqY1_ ... sp=sharing)

Have nices flights
