    I haven't had a chance to try this out yet, but it looks promising! There's no mention of needing other library files, so installation should be a breeze. Edit: I stand corrected after re-reading the readme (huh?). There is one library bgl that was left out, but can be found in his Wasilla addon - "RWvehicles." New package: http://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/fslib.php?do=search&fsec=0&fname=dawson_city.zip Wasilla package to get the needed library: http://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/fslib.php?do=search&fsec=0&fname=wasilla_ak.zip

    I'd start with the max_throttle_rate= line in the section. The default Boeing trio all have that line set to 0.10, which translates to 10% per second, or ten seconds to travel from idle to full throttle. Decreasing that number will slow the rate of change, giving the Sim time to react to the level of thrust. Start with a setting of 0.05 and see how you like it.

    It looks like most of the info you need has been provided! While I dearly love the sounds for the YS-11, I never could get my brain wrapped around the systems. The best I could do is get it off the ground without triggering the auto-feather! I can, however, provide a little insight into those direction indicator numbers. The first number can be anything from 0 to 4: 0 - Not present 1 - Vacuum Driven Gyro 2 - Electric Gyro 3 - Electro-Mag Slaved Gyro 4 - Slaved to another indicator 0 is pretty much self-explanatory. 1 and 2 are both susceptible to precess, and you need to hit the "D" key periodically to stay on course. This will cause VOR tracking to go off-course, which I thought might be happening from your original post. 3 cures that issue, since it self-adjusts based on the...

    Post the section from your aircraft.cfg - I'd like to see something before recommending anything. Edit: I don't think the default has an autopilot at all. Have you added one?

    Thanks for the help, guys, but it has worked it's way into everything and keeps popping back up no matter what we do. The Missus has decided to trash it and get a new one. ( it's an old $250 HP ). thanks again, LD

    It will help to know exactly which plane you're using, and possibly get a screenshot of your ILS gauge while on approach. I just took a look in the Sim with the default Baron and the ILS for Rwy 33 on110.90 works just fine. I took a look at it in AFCAD and found one small error - the PAPI elevation is 3.5, while the glideslope beacon is set to 4.3. I'm wondering if that might be what you're seeing if you're following the lights and expecting the flight director to agree with them.

    You'd be surprised at what it can do. First, hit the "A" key to show the nav-aids. Use your mouse wheel to zoom in, then push the mouse wheel (middle click) to drag the approach onto the screen. Double-click the runway to verify the heading - in this case, 180.540. The opposite of that would of course be 360.540, so make a mental note of that, then close the properties box. Next, double-click the localizer cone itself. Key in the correct heading in the space provided. When you close that, you'll see the angle of the cone line up perfectly with the runway. Save the changes, and AFCAD will, by default, put your new airport file into the correct location. AFCAD can do just about anything to your airport that does not rise up above the 2D ground layout. For buildings, taxiway signs,...

    I prefer the old AFCAD 2.2.1 by Lee Swordy. Changing the angle of the ILS was pretty simple. Here's an AFCAD file you can put into your Addon Scenery\scenery folder. Just drop it in and start the Sim - no need to change anything in the Scenery Library.
