Major Update : The Great War Project : Spad VII CI (150)

As part of our continued support, several items have been addressed on the S7 which include the following fixes and additions.

  • Flight Model. Several corrections to rudder/elevator control, and engine/propeller properties.
  • Start-up smoke. Corrects the ‘sticking’ smoke at engine start.
  • Engine Smoke. Corrects at which point oil burning smoke is generated.
  • Magneto operation. Corrects Left/Right magnetos to function properly.
  • Starter operation. Corrects starter animation and function to work properly.
  • Fuel selector valve. Corrects fuel selector valve to enable selection of fuel-cutoff.
  • Engine Audio. Corrects audio files from ‘hanging’, and fixes internal audio to dual channel stereo for better depth of sound.
  • Contact Points. Corrects wheel and skid contact points, to allow better performance over grass runways, and with Accu-Feel.
  • Propeller Texture. Correct backwards text on propeller, removing to make more accurate to type.
  • Mid-Air reload. Correct aircraft load, to run when selected in mid-air, and with pilot visible.
  • System flooding. Corrects ‘constant firing’ of key events, which caused multiplayer and system performance issues.
  • Added full functionality to all cockpit switches.
  • Update to the configuration panel, allowing selection of ‘cold and dark’, or ‘ready to start’ setups.
  • More FDE Re-work, including weight distribution, stall characteristics, and control surface dynamics.
  • Updated effects files for more realistic start-up smoke, and very subtle full-power smoke.
  • New custom stereo audio files for open-cockpit wind noise, and ‘shaky’ touchdown sounds.
  • Enabled user sounds to be used across multiplayer.
