Hey, its F_E_M, i'm on a diff. PC so i dont wanna log in. Anyone know if there's a way to modify FS04 so that you always start a flight with your engines off???
Start a flight in any plane. Park where you want, shut down all systems, radois, lights, battery, and alternator - or whatever. Save your flight! Now next time you start the sim, choose that flight, and you will be in a dark cockpit.
Correct me if I'm wrong (and I know you will ) but can't you shut down the engines with "Ctrl+Shift+F1".
There's a much easier method than saving a new flight. You can find a patch on AVSIM's library that gives you a "cold cockpit" when you start up the simulator, as well as changing the default VC displays (a convinient feature as well). It's listed as the first search result under "flight simulator 2004 utilities" if you look for "cold cockpit."
