Can't stop getting penalties
Author: anotherone      9 Posts  Status: Young recruit Date    04-22-12 05:14

Hello,

After all my flights I always receive 2 penalties

First one says i forgot to turn on seat belts indicator...this is what I do: ON when starting taxing, OFF when i reach cruise altitude and then ON
again when starting descend (and keep them ON till I get the gate)

The other says i forgot strobe lights...I turn them ON before to enter the active runway and keep them that way until leaving the runway in the
destination airport.

So, can you please tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

Realistic light penalty:
1. Beacon must be turned ON when an engine is about to be started.
2. Strobe and landing lights must be turned ON when you leave the taxi way and enter the landing strip.
3. Landing lights must be turned OFF above FL100 and ON under FL100.
4. Strobe and landing light must be turned OFF when you enter the taxi way after landing.
5. Beacon must be turned OFF only after you have shut down all the engines.
6. Nav light must be ON during the entire flight.

Aircraft's panel problem:
First be aware that some panel don't have the required button separated
(strobe, landing light and beacon) Some panel have two lights connected
to one button (strobe and beacon for example) And last some use their
own system not connected to Fs2004 value (as PMDG for example)

if you have one of the above case disable the light penalty in FsPassengers
to fly those aircraft or edit the panel.cfg to replace with the correct button.

Seatbelt sign must be illuminated prior to push-back from the gate or stand.

It's a 737NG (The PMDG NGX).
It has a 3 positions switch:

UP = Strobe and Steady
Center = Off
Down = Steady

I set it to Steady for taxi, Strobe and Steady for takeoff and back to Steady while leaving the runway where I landed.
Am I doing it wrong?

Thanks.

Update

The lights problem seems to be solved, this time turned on strobe as soon as I started taxing and this way got no penalty.

About the seat belts signal, got the same issue, even when I switched it on before releasing the parking brake.

I have a checklist for the 737-800 (Default)

Beacon/ Anti Collision Lights On at Pre-Start.

Nav and Taxi Lights Before Taxi

Strobe Lights on Before Take-off and off Taxi to Ramp.

Thanks, as I posted I'm not getting the lights penalty anymore.
Now I just need to figure how to avoid the seat belts indicator one.

Can you just add a button to the plane?

You do know that you can designate crew services be automaticand you won't have to worry about those little things.

let's keep our priorities in line please, Is this a stewerdess simulator or a flight simulator? Which is more important to you, the damn
seat belt light or flying your craft from A to B and landing safely and in a controled manner? We all want realisim but let's get real!!!:worry:

I stand humbled and bow in the light of your flight prowes. Those of my ilk should pay more attention to the seat belt light. I kneel to your
superior intellectulosity and smartosiousness.

I don't see anything wrong with trying to simulate airline things like seat belt lights with an addon that adds virtual passengers to a flight
simulator, but that's just me!
