AN2 spontaneous combustion with ASN?

My AN2 seems to spontaneously burst into flames when using Active Sky Next. With out ASN, it seems to work fine. Here is the odd bit: when I load the aircraft it is fine but the engine will refuse to start. It is when I switch to an external view that it goes up in flames. To make sure it wasn't tem...

Re: Fuel pump and primer shortcuts request

Well, with logging I get an endless stream of ADF 2 ident disable reports. Besides that I get absolutely nothing for the oil cooler doors but I will double check that. Also, toggle fuel valve engine 1 controls the red fuel valve handle. Unfortunately you can only toggle it and not input a direct con...

Re: Fuel pump and primer shortcuts request

I had no problem mapping the cowl flaps but the oil cooler doors seem to be non default as I can't find anything in FSUIPC to use for them.

I'll try the logging idea myself. I've never thought about it before much less used it...

Re: Fuel pump and primer shortcuts request

I'd love a shortcut for the oil cooler doors as well as the red fuel valve lever. I've got nearly all of the controls there mapped to my Saitek throttle quads except for those two.

Re: Two questions: Cold and Dark & Ground Handling

With throttle, full forward yoke input and careful momentum management through the differential brakes it is possible to steer the plane as is. I haven't made any changes to the cfg, though I did see that mentioned before but it never hurts to make sure the info is out there. I've found that using n...

Re: Two questions: Cold and Dark & Ground Handling

I think I figured out my problems on the first issue with my most recent flight. For one I was letting go of the started connect switch to quickly to turn on the mags. If I turn on the mags first and then hold the clutch switch longer the engine fires. I also found that if I cycle the pneumatic refi...

Two questions: Cold and Dark & Ground Handling

First, I love the AN2. SibWings has done an amazing job of building character into this aircraft and it is a pleasure to fly. My first question is how is the best way to load the aircraft cold and dark. If I load the default Cessna, shut everything down and then load the AN2, I get a few issues. Som...
