There are still minor issues under autopilot that can be solved one by one., one of them is:

The aircraft will properly ascend to the new altitude, but not descend to the new altitude.
To correct this: Go to systems/A340-autopilot.xml, change line 321 in: <u_min>-16.667</u_min> (was <u_min>-1.667</u_min>)

Kind regards,

@legoboyvdlp

I am aware of this bug, and already fixed it. And all IT2 Autopilots will receive the fix tomarrow.

Legboyvdlp, Please co-ordinate with me deal with the AP issues, since I just fixed this, and was about to push, and The numbers I use are actually a little bit different, and are fine tuned. This fix will be irreverent soon, since I completely changed the whole pid-controller in the next update.

Please let me deal with the AP issues, or else my FLCH system will be broke! The fix is also irreverent, since I completely changed the whole pid-controller.


Wait - are you actually arguing here that it might makes sense to have a responsible maintainer of an aircraft who co-ordinates development? Rather than everyone merges in as it comes? :-)

Edit: I've just been informed via a message that my comment here might be seen as a personal attack - if that is indeed the case, that hasn't been my intention at all and I apologize if it was perceived as such.

@Thorsten
Legoboy inlisted me to build a new AP for the A340s, so I did. I am informing him that I changed the whole Vertical system and this fix is kind of useless. I have edited me post. I don't mind co=ordinating, but just saying I fixed X Y and Z and for all you know, I push the same fix 2 seconds later... I have fixed this in all A340s in an hour or so, I'll push it. Once I stabilize the FLCH system, I will add that as well. I appreciate your non wanting a personal attack. :)

@ph-cor
I have also re-wrote the heading hold, and loc capture systems, those will push hopefully soon.

Finally the fixed AP with fixed LOC and fixed ALTITUDE CAPTURE is on GIT. Lego, please merge from FGMEMBERS into your repo.

What about making the AP (folder) a git submodule so every AP gets updated? :D

Then it turns out like JWOCKY's J-pack.

"No I don't want J-PACK" = "No I don't want autopilot"

and then people have broken planes, and come complaining to me: "Why is your plane broken?"

That is why.

To WTF411

I have test flight the latest autopilot for ILS
Result not stable in slope and course.

I tried several changes in the autopilot.xml file and suggest now the following changes:


line 188: -5 (was -1)
line 190 1.0 (was 0.1)
line 218 0.25 (was 0.5)
line 219 0.5 (was 1.0)
line 220 1.0 (was 0.1}
line 310 -.0.04 (was -0.01)

With these changes ILS was stable in course and slope

Thanks for splended works on the Airbus A340
Kind regards ph-cor

@ph-cor
OK, I mainly am working on the nasal part, I haven't touched the XML in a while. I'll add your code tomarrow and see how it goes.

Thanks,

@it0uchpods:
Please forget the idea with the submodules, it works differently than I thought, Israel explained it to me ;D
