News! - Aircraft Updated : BAe 146 Professional updated to v1.1 and now on the X-Plane.OrgStore

Poof!...   Suddenly there are wheel chocks on my BAe 146 Pro? Where did they come from? Officially the changelog notes a change from the release version v1.0 to v1.1...  but in reality there are a load of hidden version changes set out inbetween from the beginning of May. The update changes that have been added in, are v1.0.5 to v1.0.7, so that is three significant sets of new features, changes, bug repairs including the minute v1.1 update that only actually includes the "TMS: Take-off callouts (Power Flex, Power N1, T/O mode)" and the "Additional approach call-out added for glideslope intercept: "Glideslope alive, one dot to go""...  cool!

 

Here is the extensive changelog list

v1.1 Change log
12, May 2021

-TMS: Take-off callouts (Power Flex, Power N1, T/O mode)


v1.0.7 Change log

-Add freighter door annunciator
-Cargo Smoke test added to overhead Test Panel
-Improved green hydraulic system pressure gauges
-Annunciator logic: Fuel Pump LO PRESS and Engine FUEL LO PRESS lights.
-Fixed anti-skid annunciator light.
-TMS: Add ability to sync to N1 in SYNC mode.
-TMS: Fixed engine synchronization problems.
-TMS: Chevron indicator thresholds adjusted.
-Improved fuel system, especially for edge cases.

-Fixed issue where N1 indicators could snap to 99.9 unexpectedly.
-Added VR compatibility for the Checklist and TMS pop-ups.
-Fixed pitch setting for copilot's Flight Director.
-Added altimeter sync functionality
-Pressurization: Fixed CABIN HI ALT annunciator not working when in MAN mode.
-Tablet screen: Fuel values can no longer become negative.
-Tablet screen: Fixed frozen cargo weight for freighter.


v1.0.5 Change log
4, May 2021

-Added chocks, visually and functionally
-Added hydraulic system effects to brakes
-Improved TMS (Throttle now independent of TMS logic)
-Fixed rear seat row in 100 version
-TMS no longer on when starting from cold and dark
-Created camera collision bounding box for VR (Makes it easier to navigate)
-Enabled experimental flight model (No longer necessary to enable it in-sim)
-Added VR click spots to some tablet interaction zones
-Fixed annunciator test button flicker when cold and dark

 

All versions to v1.0.6 or now v1.1 are only available through the SkunkCrafts updater which is installed in your X-Plane/Resources/Plugin folder. To update make sure you don't have the BAe146 aircraft selected and select in the Skunkcrafts updater the "JF_BAe_146 selection", then press the "Updater or repair addon" selection.

 

Noticeable (besides the new chocks) are the changes on the renamed Menu/Doors and Reflections pop-up panel...  Now the chocks selection is available far top left, the quality of the chocks are excellent, and to be able to select them when YOU want to is a huge bonus.

More additions now also include choices to have both window or instrumentation reflections or not...  nice. The Airbridge attach points have also been adjusted (not really a big deal on this mostly walkon/walkoff aircraft).

 

A lot of adjustments have been added to the Cargo aspects of the aircraft...  these include; freighter cargo doors now require hydraulic pressure, added freighter door annunciator, Cargo Smoke test added to overhead panel and fixed the frozen cargo weight.

 

System adjustments include; hydraulic system effects for brakes, brakes are now also dependent on their selected hydraulic system pressure and brake behaviours (given hydraulic pressure loss, reservoir, etc.) are better, Improved fuel system. And there has also been added altimeter sync functionality.

  • Numerous animations including:
  •  - Trailing edge flap surfaces
  •  - Wing-mounted spoilers and tail-mounted airbrake
  •  - Ailerons and elevators feature servo tabs, and balanced, free-floating control surfaces which are affected not only by oncoming air, but also by turbulence, side winds, up and down drafts etc. during taxi or low-speed ground operations
  •  - All passenger, service and cargo doors use custom animations and featurr extra logic such as the auto-closure of doors above a certain speed
  •  - Windscreen wipers with individual left/right animations and independent speed controls
  •  - Distinctive retractable tricycle landing gear featuring complex trailing link shock-absorbing mechanism on the main gear
  •  - Countermeasure pods, HF aerial and more

Cockpit

  • A truly 3D cockpit environment right down to accurately modelled seat belts and screw heads
  • Cockpit textures feature wear and tear based on reference photos taken in the real aircraft to produce an authentic environment
  • Captain, Co-pilot and jump-seat positions are modelled with hundreds of functional controls, including over 200 buttons, 100 switches and knobs, with smooth animations, easy-to-use clickspots and precision sounds
  • Fully VR compatible
  • Aircraft configuration system that will allow you to choose between 'cold & dark' or 'engines running’. These configurations can be customised via the Manifest.json file.
  • Custom throttle lever logic – fuel latch logic which is compatible with hardware (avoiding jitters due to conflicting throttle positions), cutomisable variation in throttle positions for added realism, clickspot for controlling all four levers simultaneously etc.
  • Functional crank handles on knobs such as the altitude select and rudder trim, which allow for more intuitive, realistic and quicker operation
  • Full support for command assignments, hardware and cockpit builders:
  •  - All controls can be assigned to commands, with tooltips on every clickspot to indicate which command to use
  •  - Parameters such as smoothing animation, number of positions, attached dataref, push-button depth, knob rotation multiplier, frame-skip (for optimisation), default position etc. can all be customised via the Manifest.json file, providing great support for hardware and cockpit builders.
  •  - Default commands for landing and taxi lights, windsscreen wipers, panel lights etc. are still respected, despite being implemented with custom functionality
  • Custom features such as ‘hide yokes’ are controllable using default commands (e.g. 'Hide Yoke') as well as via clickspots
  • EFB tablet with door and call-out controls and with AviTab support

Sounds

  • Studio quality Lycoming ALF-502 engine sounds, recorded from RAF C.Mk3 ZE708
  • Over 450 flight deck sound effects recorded from RAF CC.Mk2 ZE701

  • More than 520 sounds samples in high definition with accurate 3D placement. Pushing the limits of FMOD 1.08 sound system with more than 150 sound tracks being played at the same time with no virtualisation.
  • Full 7.1 surround sound support via FMOD, with 3D positional sound for VR users
  • Extremely detailed external sound system:
  •  - Takes into account distance, speed, altitude, temperature and air pressure, just like in real life
  •  - Accurate touchdown sound based on impact speed
  •  - Multi-directional sound during fly-by and camera location on external view
  •  - Realistic runway roll sounds, complete with periodic bumps that depend on lateral runway position
  •  - Realistic wind sound that reacts not only to the speed of the aircraft but also how the wind is interacting with the fuselage (AoA, side slip etc.)
  •  - Realistic ambient sounds which replaces the default X-Plane sounds with a high fidelity FMOD sound system recreating the atmospheric effect, such as rain, birds, thunder etc.
  • Interior and cabin sounds:
  •  - Passenger sounds, based on aircraft weight, which react according to your flying style. Passenger cabin sound changes as you move around, as if you were inside the real plane.

Lighting

  • Full HDR lighting with gimballed lights that can be aimed and dynamically illuminate whichever part of the cockpit is aimed at
  • Independent lighting controls for Captain and First Officer
  • Dimmable integral lighting for each panel, accurately dependent on corresponding electrical bus
