I tried the A320 and its sound is amazing, it seems like being onboard the real one. Thanks for your work

Some minor things to solve:
*shadow under the plane
*need to click two times the button to take effect the FLCH function on the IT autopilot window. (1 time for the same thing with the KC137)

Of course!

Just starting with the IAEs, since their 3D is better right now.


Shadow fixed in next push
You don't need to push it twice, look on the top of the box under Flight modes. It just takes a moment to start climbing/descending, since the thrust change is changed slowly in FLCH for a smoother transition.

No problem! Glad to help :D


KNOWN ISSUE:
AP is unstable when you change the payload. This is due to an issue with IT-AUTOFLIGHT's config module. I have resolved the issue locally, and will be pushing the change as soon as I can.

Hi it0uchpods,

The A320 is great to fly. Thanks!

I've found a minor bug: On the EFIS panel, when clicking on the knob for changing the navigation mode ("Rose"), the knob turns to the right with each click, but stops when reaching "PLAN". Furthermore, you cannot turn it to the left anymore. Same behavior for the knob just to the right (for selecting the Navigation display zoom). Maybe, you can fix this?

Thanks and best regards,
Patrick

On the A330 by Artix, you could just click and the knob always turned to the right continuously.

hi @all
I do not like the knob animation for autopilot knobs, it is clumsy to use in my opinion.
I use pick, and the left or center mouse buttons preform the push/pull function of the knob (where available). I will soon be adding that is you hold SHIFT, the value changes in larger increments.

The knob in the real airbus stops there, so mine does as well. the knob can be turned counter clockwise with scroll wheel or central mouse button

Right now, I have no intentions to change this behavior, it works as the real aircraft does. I could, however, make a CTRL+click do the opposite of a normal click if that is needed.

Artix's behavior is not realistic, it is changed for convieniance. My philosphy for building aircraft is to build it as realistic as possible, which is what I do on all my planes. Where the lever stops in real life, it stops in my plane. You could also create a macro to assign keys to scrolling, then hover over the switch, and use those keys.

If you have any other ideas, let me know.

Hi Josh,

The implementation of CTRL+click to do the opposite of a normal click would be great!

Thanks,
Patrick

The knob/slider animation was specifically designed to seperate the functionally of a knob and the user interaction. Users have different needs based on their hardware for example. What mimics the real aircraft best on your specific mouse doesn't necessarily apply to someone's else's. Using he knob animation on your aircraft allows users to adjust the way they interact with it through the menu. In one go for all aircraft that use this animation, thus providing a consistent sim-wide experience.

I'd strongly suggest to use the knob animation. Please let us know if there's a certain function missing that's holding you back from using it, so it can be added.
