Forgive the sow updates, my life and health has been quite turbulent.

I made many changes to the AFS today improving and optimizing logic. If anyone notices weird behavior of the AFS modes please let me know instantly! I did test everything but I am not perfect.

APU also doing more research to make him work.

Been learning a bit of 3D modelling too slowly for the Secret project so had a few less times. A good skill to get into nevertheless!

Kind Regards,
Josh

Little update from me:

APU totally resimulated.

- Proper startup/shutdown logic/control
- APU variable speed simulation, depending on bleed load on the APU, from 63% n1 to 100% n1. n2 is always 100%
- EGT simulated
- APU Generator redone completely to be realistic
- APU Door
- Misc fixes to things
- APU Pwr switch on electrical system now will power on the APU, in that mode it will connect on bus as soon as its available and APU gen is allowed. This differs from when you start it from the APU panel, it won't come online automatically.
- Fixed bug in hydraulic system, can't turn off the engine pumps even in manual mode - I wrote electrical instead of hydraulics in the system logic... sorry...

Left to do on the APU is the 90 sec delay after bleed is used and a few minor things.

Kind Regards,
Josh

Now when you lose hydraulic power! You will notice the surfaces behave much more realistically with gravity and a airflow rather than just dropping at once!

Fixed integrity lighting on the dial-a-flap selector, thx to David/Skyboat for reporting.

Now, If you use a APU BLEED
When you press the APU switch to shut down, he will wait 90 seconds from when the bleed was unused before he turns off.

Fixed drawing of the FPV birdie
the axis of translation rotates but the birdie itself should not rotate - I yawed a bit here so you can see it.

I am happy to report the MD-11 is 2020.3.0 and compositor-compatible.

Kind Regards,
Josh
