Working Title CJ4 v0.11.3

Welcome to the Working Title CJ4 v0.11.3. In this update we add night charts and stored pilot waypoints, along with bug fixes. We invite you to join our discord community here: https://discord.gg/Fa6w2xK.

Installation

Installation is easy, simply copy the workingtitle-aircraft-cj4 folder inside the zip file to your MSFS Community folder.

Important: We recommend that you fully delete the previous workingtitle-aircraft-cj4 folder before copying this release.

Charts Integration

Charts in the CJ4 are powered by Navigraph - special thanks to the team at Navigraph for their support with API integration. In order to use the charts in the CJ4, you need to have a subscription that includes charts - Navigraph. If you have a subscription, all you need to do is select the NAVIGRAPH line in MOD SETTINGS in the FMC and that will launch your web browser and ask you to log in to your Navigraph account - from there an access token will be issued. These tokens do time out from time-to-time, so if you’re prompted by the aircraft, or if you ever encounter difficulties loading charts, please go back to this option and resync your account. Details on using the Charts capabilities are in the user guide.

Here’s a video demoing the Charts functionality: WT CJ4 - MFD Charts (Navigraph) Preview - YouTube

User Guide

The User Guide has been updated: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1qzxPMTSQRkvau8QOi7xUqNvjx9rbww_qHlso5AT5OnI/

Changes

PFD

  • PFD Baro preset function added. (After STD is pressed on Baro knob, a preset value can be selected and swapped with STD press again once passed transition altitude)

MFD

  • Added support for Navigraph Charts (can be selected with CHARTS button on lower control panel).
  • Added VNAV window to FMS text (can be displayed by selecting VNAV WINDOW in the FMC DSPL MENU).
  • Added Advisory Descent (DES instead of TOD) when no arrival or approach is loaded; this will provide an advisory (uncoupled) “DES” point to start descent to reach 1500’ AFE 10nm from airport.

FMC

  • Added TUNE page functionality - ATC Control page, dispatch function, format changes,
  • Added VNAV WINDOW option to DSPL MENU.
  • Datalink: Added ATIS support for IVAO.
  • Datalink: Changed default METAR source to VATSIM.
  • Datalink: Added support for facilities with separate departure and arrival ATIS.

VNAV

  • Fixed bug where in certain circumstances below constraints were not observed in the first segment of the vertical flight plan.
  • Adjusted glideslope capture to be more sensitive and only capture with less than half scale deflection.
  • Adjusted visibility of below constraints on departure to allow them to appear on the PFD and in the VNAV MFD window at a greater distance from present position.

FLIGHT MODEL

  • Flight model adjusted and enhanced based on sim update 3 aerodynamic changes.

MODEL

  • Added support for livery painters that adjust the panel.cfg file; see the REPAINT_README.MD file included in the CJ4 Docs Folder (REPAINT_README.md).

:warning:[image] Known Issues

  • PTCH mode will not level off at an altitude and it can have some quirky behaviors. This is currently a sim AP issue.
  • Some external applications that use the GPS/Flight plan SimVars may not function correctly or as expected when FP Sync is off.
  • Loading and saving flights can have bad results.
  • Custom liveries can render FADEC inoperative if they ship with a panel.cfg. Painters should reference the new REPAINT_README.md file included in the docs folder of the Github repository.
  • Autopilot modes cannot be triggered via key bindings or controllers and must currently be triggered in the cockpit with the mouse. External binding applications are adding support for LVars and HEvents. Used SimVars are documented here
  • Sometimes a heading to altitude instruction on takeoff will display further than the first RNAV fix on an RNAV departure procedure; in these cases the workaround is to cross-check the DP chart and remove the erroneous waypoint either by deleting the heading to altitude fix or dropping the first RNAV fix onto the magenta line in the LEGS page.
  • Due to sim autopilot bank rate limitations, the aircraft may overshoot on certain RNP approaches with tight turns. If you encounter this, we recommend hand flying the approach with the given lateral and vertical guidance.
  • The Standby Attitude Indicator switch is reversed in the model, so down (off) turns the SAI on and vice-versa; this will be addressed in a future update.

v0.11.3 Changes

  • Fixed bug with Pilot Waypoint storage that could cause errors for users adding waypoints to the data store for the first time
  • Fixed missing STAR transition legs when selecting a VFR runway for landing instead of a published approach
  • Fixed a bug with the autopilot update loop that could occasionally cause LNAV or VNAV to stop responding
  • Made adjustments to LNAV turn anticipation in certain turn types
  • Fixed bug that prevented the correct hold entry type from being updated when changing inbound course and turn direction
  • Fixed bug where AP dives to pre-select altitude when VNAV is disabled while in PATH mode
  • Fix behavior when a flight plan change causes PATH recalculation while in PATH mode - will now go to ALT and attempt to re-arm PATH

v0.11.2 Changes

  • Implemented charts dark/night mode (activated when panel lights are off or at full [daytime mode] and are otherwise night mode)
  • Added ability to store up to 20 pilot waypoints (IDX->DATABASE)
  • Added ability to type pilot waypoint idents in LEGS, DIR and FPLN pages
  • Fixed Standby Attitude Indicator and Emergency Light Switches
  • Add Emergency Light CAS Message
  • Fix co-pilot audio panel
  • Fixes for TOD problems, including showing a TOD when in an approach and missing when in cruise
  • Fixed VNAV FPTA error that sometimes could cause LNAV to stop responding
  • Added CHECK SPEED message that will show when your speed is >20kts than the current restriction (remember speed constraints are not automatically loaded from nav data and must be manually entered)
  • Further enhancement of terrain colors for the TERR map option; adds curve points above and below aircraft based on aircraft AGL altitude.
  • Cleanup of some small FMC bugs, including missing Working… messages for some screens.
  • Improved duplicate detection methods when importing flight plans (fewer duplicates will flag)
  • Removed ‘select waypoint’ page being triggered during an import if there are no exact duplicates
  • Refined TOD rounding on MFD in VNAV WINDOW

How do you manage to outdo yourself again and again?

You really deserve the OSCAR for the best MOD! :slight_smile:

How do you display the waypoint information to the right of the FMS text? I can’t find that option.

None of my displays work on the new version. I deleted the old version completely and copied the new version into Community.

Had the same problem with the FBW A320 after the latest MSFS update and they came out with a patch in the DEV version that fixed it.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Well, I eventually made the leap from the 172, 208 and the excellent TBM, and decided to download and try out this mod.
I’ve just completed my first flight, with charts and all.
And oh my, this is one impressive piece of work!

FLC climbing is tricky so I just need to work it out, but boy oh boy the VNAV decent from TOD to an ILS landing was just simply sublime.

Guys, you have done an AMAZING job!! :clap:t2::+1:t2::clap:t2:
THIS is what MSFS is all about.
Looking forward to what you’ll next bring to the platform.

IIRC it is a known issue with SU3 and the workaround is to restart the flight.

Maybe give it a try,

v0.11.2 has been released, bringing “night” charts and stored pilot waypoints.

Yes, I did try that. As well as restarting the sim.

Seems more likely there is a conflict with another addon. That’s what FBW said they thought could have caused the same exact issue with the A320.

Working Title Simulations does it again. Absolutely fabulous new feature additions. Among many of the awesome new features is …

NIGHT MODE FOR CHARTS (GEO-REFERENCED)

PILOT DEFINED WAYPOINTS (STORABLE)
(in addition to the already available PBD - Point Bearing Distance and user defined waypoints)

HOLDS
(already available since previous releases)

TOD
(already available since previous releases)

Saw that the 0.11.2 update came out shortly after my OP. Replaced my 0.11.1 and voila, back in business!

Very happy now to be back flying one of, if not the best 3rd party aircraft for the sim.

Cheers!

The first flight with version 0.11.2 went very well, only the standby altimeter display is dark.
Can anyone confirm this?
Is there a separate switch for it?
It still worked in version 0.11.1.

My standby altimeter is dark as well.

There is a switch right below the battery switch that says STBY FTL Display. I had the same issue until I switched it on.
