It was reported here about six messages up. Are you in the beta? If so, that should confirm it is beta related and the mod needs to be updated, I would think, unless something changes before full release of the beta.
Update: reported as an SU12 Beta issue on Github page for this mod.
Addition: For the same issue but other aircraft, it was suggested that one look at “cockpit camera, translate cockpit view” (forward, backward, left, right) and increase/decrease cockpit view height". I tried it and it works, but only temporarily. As soon as Ctrl + Space is used to return to the “normal” cockpit view, the translation is lost and the pilot parts can be seen again.
I’ve been using versions of this mod since it first came out, so I’m thrilled to see the experimental version seems to have solved the issues with the Black Square Caravan.
That said, I think the cruise performance might need another look, since the mod is now about 15-20kt slower in cruise than it should be. At maximum cruise power (ISA day, medium weight) at around 10,000ft the best I can get is about 160-65kt TAS, whereas the performance charts I’ve seen indicate the EX should be able to do about 180-85kt true (with the cargo pod) in that situation.
Have added support for NewoPL’s community mod to my latest C208 livery. Just copy to your community folder and you will find the livery in the Default Caravan, the Blacksquare Analog Caravan (if you own it) and now NewoPL’s C208 Community mod. No livery modification required, and works with this mod right out of the box.
I’ve just found another real world checklist for our C208 EX. This one not only seems FAA approved (as it’s claimed in the cover) but also is more “recent” (2013) than the well known 2012 POH:
I’ve just barely checked and saw that a couple of points from the 2012 poh have been corrected. For example, in this one, during the before engine start phase, it states to activate Avionics 1 BEFORE attempting the test switch check (Fire Detect and fuel select off). Something that was not correct in the 2012 version.
alrighty, I just picked up this mod and I tried searching this thread but, I am looking through my pilots head, I really don’t enjoy looking at the back of my eyeballs at the moment (lol), is there a way to fix this?
Do you have any visual cue / rule to set the separation with the runway on downwind with the Caravan? Following the classic rule of putting the wingtip over the edge of the rwy, I suspect I’m too close because I always ended up merging the base and final turn in only one tight turn.
Maybe there is a trick using the G1000 zoom level?
I’ve been using the “airframe/window” button with the Primary set to either “norm” or “high”, depending on the extent of the icing. The effect is an immediate elimination of ice, which obviously is not real world behavior, but that’s OK with me.
But I’ll have to try just moving the Primary switch from " High" to “Low”. If that action alone eliminates ice, is ice always eliminated from the windows or from either airframe or windows, depending on which position was set last?
In either case, a real life Caravan pilot from Canada says in a Youtube video he made that the Caravan window is “anti-icing”, not “de-icing”. But the system he is showing is different than the one modeled.
