Reworked the flight controls, and engine performance today. Added Idle Limits. A bit more FDM tweaking needed, then I will have ignition added, and finish pneumatics :)

Sorry -- it's just not working out right now, I am still battling my pain issues, which is severely cutting down my developing time -- I am putting this project away for a bit, I don't have time for many projects. It will still receive bugfixes, and minor improvements from time to time, but the big stuff has to wait until I am better and have more time.

Kind Regards,
Josh

The Canvas PFD is coming along quite nicely.

Note: The AP/ATS Box indicators look wrong, because the 2 ways it can be displayed are overlapped here. Once it's animated, it will look right, I promise!
Note 2: The only part of the heading dial which will be visible is the part above the grey line defining the bottom of the display. The rest is hidden and clipped.

Kind Regards,
Josh

Been working on the new FDE I just pushed last night. It probably has alot of issues, so alot of testing is needed.

In mean time, I am running alot of aerodynamics tests that should point out alot of it's flaws also. But I want opinion also.

Kind Regards,
Josh

Made some progress on the Canvas PFD, it about 30% done.

Some is in git under UTILITIES --> TEST CANVAS

Also, did more FDM and flight controls work, and made some first fixes to AFS.

Kind Regards,
Josh

Doing much more work on the Canvas PFD, the AFS behavior, and such. Alot of changes are being made!

I am aware that you cannot control the NAV display at the moment. That functionality will be restored shortly.

Kind Regards,
Josh

Today's MD-11 PFD Update:
Image

I also overhauled the AFS interface, SPD and HDG now get captured, then you need to pull to change, but when its not captured yet, you can adjust it without pulling. Fixed alot of internal logic, and the FMA now displays the modes correctly. Also other tweaking.

Kind Regards,
Josh
