Arrow Mission: Huey Ramp Start Voice-over

1. Overview

When I flew the Oilfield Campaign for the Mi-8, I loved the built-in voice-over feature for Ramp Start.

So I decided to do a Ramp Start voice-over for the Huey, at a more modest scale.

Please note that my main goal was to create an audio ambience and I do not claim to be 100% realistic.

Below is the link for you to download a freeflight containing triggers for voice-over.

2. Download

Click here



3. Features (voice-over list)
Code:
 1. AC Phase
 2. Main Generator On
 3. ESS-Bus
 4. Battery On
 5. Fuel On
 6. Force Trim On
 7. Hydraulic Control On
 8. Engine Start
 9. Revs increasing... Temperature increasing
10. Ready to take-off!
11. And here we go!
4. Notes and known limitations
  • Start up sequence must follow Chuck's Guide
  • Voice-overs work only once per flight session
  • Engine Start and Rev increasing triggers only work if you start the mission from the Mission Editor
  • I will upload the file on the DCS File Library later

5. Credits
  • Technology for cockpit arguments check: Dzen
  • US voice-over actor: throttleupvoice

6. Thanks to

I ran it from the ME and it all worked except I didn't hear 7 & 8.
I followed your startup sequence in your list, but it didn't play 9 until I turned the Inverter on.

Thanks for your fast feedback.

In my experience buttons triggers works fine but I'll check for "7. Hydraulic Control On".

I've not understood completely the subtlety for gauge triggers, typically for "8. Engine Start" based on Gas Producer Tachometer. So I'll need to investigate that.

"9. Revs increasing" is playing like 15 seconds after "8. Engine Start".

"10. Ready to take-off!" is triggered by setting the Inverter to On.

Thanks the first couple of links I haven’t seen and needed for my upcoming training missions I like the idea of the voice over since that’s how a two person crew would run the checklists I am going to use a -10 checklist in addition to chucks tutorials

Worked fine for me. I slightly missed the "throttle to left" (like in the Oilfield...except that it was throttle to right). I'm not sure about the volume though. I had to increase it a bit. The volume felt a bit too low IMO, but maybe that's just on my PC. Also, it would be nice if the voice over would have more of a "comms" effect. It sounds too clear to me. Anyway, for sure a nice addition.

Thanks for taking time to send your feedback rg75. Can you confirm that all the triggers worked for you? Did you launch the mission from the DCS Mission menu or the Mission Editor?

To be honest, this is my first mission with triggers and cockpit triggers are not the easiest ones (especially gauges status check). That's why I decided to keep it simple and mostly focused on essential things at this time. It is somewhat a prototype.

If I do a new version, I will certainly consider higher volume and "comms" effect ; and possibly a more comprehensive and realistic checklist.

That will depend on:
- The demand or interest of the community
- My technical skills which are limited as I have no programming background)
- Help from volunteering and knowledgeable mates in the community

Works nice!
One small note. I've missed some steps (missed IFF - OK not implemented, hydraulics, radar altimeter - not implemented, but would be nice) and got "Ready for takeoff" message.
IMHO, there should be "safety" flags which are to be checked to prevent incomplete start procedure announced as completed.
