This version was rushed out to fix a few different bugs that Windows users were experiencing. It contains a few new features, but is mainly a bugfix release.
Add support for <a href="https://www.afmsimulation.com/m20r/">AFM's Mooney M20R Ovation</a>
New commands: sync heading / altitude / vertical speed / airspeed current values to autopilot settings with "sync heading", etc.
New commands: turn on or off master switch, avionics master, battery, battery 1, battery 2, generator, yaw damper, prop sync with "turn on master switch" / "turn on battery 2" etc.
Updated command: navigation lights can also be called "nav lights": e.g., "turn on the nav lights"
Updated command: vertical speed commands are more flexible, understanding a wider range of things people say, e.g. "vertical speed plus one thousand four hundred" or "vertical speed down seven hundred"
This is the first publicly released version of PlaneCommand 3. During previous versions (3.0.0, 3.0.1) I forgot to include a bunch of critical files (all the profiles!). This beta fixes that, as well as some other bugs found in the process.
Flaps system readbacks improved- readbacks will be different for different aircraft.
Add support for altimeter settings in hPa- e.g. "set altimeter 1-0-1-3"
Add separate parking brake support, separate from normal brakes
This release was only sent to beta testers, who identified a number of critical bugs. I recommend using v3.0.3 or later.
You can adjust the voice- pick a different voice, change the speed, and change the volume
More aircraft are well supported.
Additional aircraft profiles can be added by making your own JSON file for the aircraft. Check out the Resources/plugins/planecommand/data/profiles folder for some examples. <a href="https://planecommand.com/profiles">How to make a new profile</a>
Lots of new commands. Control more of the aircraft systems (like thrust reversers), and more autopilot modes (like VVI hold). (A page listing commands will be added later)
Better radio tuning. Stuff like the new 8.33khz resolution tuning for COM1 and COM2. You can say "guard" instead of 121.50 MHz, etc.
Copilot will protect you from some dangerous situations. For example, thrust reversers can only be deployed while on the ground. Engines can't be shut off midair. Landing gear can't be raised on the ground. Flaps can't be extended past the max extension speed.
The recognized command and response are printed on screen.
More clear debugging / troubleshooting functionality. E.g., the headset icon changes if no mic is plugged in.
Bug: altitude selection is broken in many aicraft
Bug: When flying some Carenado aircraft, setting the nav course / heading causes a crash.
