Wish I could switch off the engine...

Recommended Posts

I always taxi back up to the hangars (or an area I deem a de-arming zone) after a completing a mission. Then I just wish I could turn the engine off and sit back with a sigh of relief as another mission is done and more combat hours in my logbook.

 

I realise it's most likely hard-coded but starting up and shutting down the engines (even if it was only one button) would please me no end. It's the only major complaint I have with the Thirdwire sims.

 

Anyone else have similar thoughts ?

Yes indeed, but the ONLY game I know that does that is Falcon 4.0

the on-off engine is implemented in the FE expansion, so i guess this feature will be added too in the next SFP1/WOV/WOE patch series.

You're joking right? TK really added it?

Hmmmm...I wonder if we can modify that feature (if and when it's appled to the other titles), to mimic engine flameouts?

Perhaps TK already has in the forthcoming new jet sim. (though I doubt it)

we asked for on/off and he listened. If enough people asked, he probably would if it wasn't too costly. Though I'd rather see more avionics capability for modern aircraft.

It's kinda weird that the on/off engine thing isn't in SF/WOV/WOE, because there is a sound file for prop start-ups. I once thought that I had accidentally turned of the Allison in my P-40K mid-dogfight, but it was a bullet that was responsible for that one. :biggrin:
