LoD !!!

Get the wheel blocks in place and set your turbine to something above idle...

The crew will refuse to take them off again unless you idle, drove me nuts till I found that out as I set for 48Volts right after starting the turbine and disconnect external power. The thing is, they disconnect external power at any power setting ( well, all that I tested, up to 6.5k taxi rpm ) but not the wheel blocks.

I think this is great as it adds so much to what I expect from a simulation.

My first day in this aircraft, today.

This thread answers a few questions of procedures I have encountered.

Thanks.

Really neat, but annoying after a while. Took me sometime to realize this problem.

Instrument Lightning seems definitively broken with DCS 2.5.
rheostat to up to 50 %, wait for a time ( 60-90 sec ), and Nothing change. Wait for two minutes, always Nothing. Up to 100% and down 80 %, Nothing. I can see in the debrief that i haven't blow up the UV lamp.
Unable to fly at nicht

Works for me in 2.5.4 stable:

Turning rheostat to 100%, when the white line on the panel begins to glow blue, turn down the rheostats a bit.

It seems the fluorescent(?) paint on the instruments needs a bit of activation time. See both screenshots, the intensity increases after some time.





edit: fixed typo

yes you re right, it need to set 100% for the first time, and down a bit after the fluo light appear.
Many thanks to you
