X-Plane developer X-Crafts has released an update for their Embraer Regional Jets Family. This update corrects minor readability issues on the EICAS and improves the speed brake logic. Finally, the overall code was rendered more efficient.
Released in May 2019, the X-Crafts ERJ Family is available on the X-Plane store for $89.95 USD. It contains the Embraer 135, 140, 145, 145X and the business Legacy 650. You can also purchase each variant separately for $49.95 USD. The product includes a custom updatable FMC, FMOD sounds, 4K textures and many other features that make it one of the best regional jets for X-Plane 11.
The update has to be done through the SkunkCrafts auto-updater.
- Corrected EICAS fuel flow readouts to ensure pounds values were shown with the PPH (pounds per hour) indication, and kilograms values for KPH (kilograms per hour).
- Also revised to be sure that these readouts were still visible with AVIONICS 1 and AVIONICS 2 in the OFF condition.
- Revised speedbrakes automation to enable use by users that prefer to use the mouse for all flight control input and to eliminate any issues related to joystick axis position. We now use the animated throttle position and the position of the reverser buckets to be sure that the reversers are not deployed before automatically closing the speedbrakes.
- Revised internal datastructures for greater code efficiency.
