Alright I got up early this morning got coffee etc, started the sim (it started right up) loaded up the airbus and loaded up flightplan cleve to erie.
1st try. - ready for take off start rolling down the run way (making sure all autopilot functions are off) airborn flaps/wheels up, turn to heading of 82 deg and start the flight level out a 5000 feet and start to trim, notice that no matter how much I down trim the plane keeps climbing. Check speed 250 knts, but its still climbing, switch to 3rd person view and notice that the trim wheel, is constantly spining to the up position no matter how much I tell it down (it would move to down but as soon as I let go of wheel it starts to trim up by itself.
–End the game–
2nd try same as above except now the trim wheel isnt acting up, get trimmed proper heading, speed, and altitude. Press to V key to bring up map to check flights progress, Boom Crash to Desktop.
3rd try same as above but this time everything is working correctly on path etc etc press the V key for the map expecting CTD but it didnt lol. Proceed to Erie call tower for landing they give me 24L. Head out over the lake make appropriate turns etc, land (perfect landing I might add lol) tune ground who tells me what gate to use I approach gate and brake. Shut down engines, power etc. Call ground service and ask for baggage, caterer, and jetway, and fuel…
Everything work just as it should (lol) baggage truck rolls up door opens on the 320 catering truck arrives door opens on the back of the plane lifts up to door (and I assume they loaded food no animation for that action but close enough), Jetway manuvers to door, door opens jetway connects.
Fuel truck arrives deploys hose to left side wing and the dialog pops up and I refuel.
Send cargo truck off it moves out of the way, same for caterer truck, and fuel truck. Request jetway be cleared and it rolls away and the door closes. Request push back and the little man comes out and starts pushing me back just like it should. All of a sudden the radio turns off damm (oh whoops forgot to detach from external power) turn on bat and request push back stop. And it does.
Run check lists request clearance to depart and go through all that … It worked lol
So the long and short of it is … When it works correctly its really pretty good. But trying to get things to work properly is just short of a major pain in the ■■■■.
