Dovetail Games has released Community Update 7 named “cold & dark” (version 1.2.18937).
The Cold and Dark updates feature a checklist that highlights the levers, buttons and switches you need to press in order to start each aircraft in Flight Sim World. Experts can enable the advanced move and remove any assistance, get themselves prepped up and taxi to the runway.
Cold and Dark Feature
- Start-up checklists across all launch aircraft to assist in Cold/Dark functionality
- Toggle advanced mode to go through the checklist yourself. Uncheck advanced mode to be walked through the cold and dark start process with camera zoom and highlighted switches & gauges (ideal for new simmers)
- You can now choose your spawn location in Free Flight (parking spaces, runways, etc)
KNOWN BUG: With the introduction of Cold and Dark, we have discovered an issue which affects the PA-46 and the DA40 checklists: If you have auto mixture disabled, you will not be able to start the engine in Assisted Mode.
To work around this issue, please make sure auto mixture is enabled in order to complete the Cold and Dark checklist in Assisted Mode. You can find the auto mixture switch in the Settings Menu under Realism. We’ll provide a fix in a future update, thanks for understanding!
