Can anyone tell me why every time I go to fly a plane the engine is always running ?
I have started from Gates/Ramps/Runway and they are always running. 🙄
Is there a way of starting with them off ❓
This post should help you with that.
It's very simple. Go to AVSIM's website, search for "cold cockpit", and it'll give you the patch you need. Now you start up every flight in a cold/dark cockpit!
Thanks Guys 🍻
Thats better ❗ Now I can use the start button 🙂)
Do you have the link to the "cold cockpit patch? I can't seem to locate it.
I too enjoy the startup procedure.
I've never used either one but both seem to tout the same general fix.
Let us know which you use so others will benefit, thanks.
The file I used is bc_dark.zip
If you go to avsims website and type in cold cockpit you will find it just read the inclosed readme file for details it's very straight forward. 😉
The patch works great and I now get to go through the procedure for starting-up😀
hope this helps jetman.
Thanks Radarman and Murdock... I am going to try it and see if it works!
I will let you know!
Guys there is no patch needed, the ability to do this in the simulator exists.
in the create flight menu pick any aircraft at any airfield > fly now
once your in the aircraft hit ctrl + shift +f1 you'll see the engines shutdown.
hit shift M and the aircraft will be off.
the save the flight as cold and dark and click the "save as default" box
next time you go to create a flight you can select a anyaircraft and any location but each time you'll find the thing cold and dark
This reply from Spuddi is exactly the one I received from a microsoft simulator expert [although I use the term 'expert' very losely] but it does the job.
guys..would this also work for Payware addon aircrafts like PMDG 737/747..
