DCS C-101 Aviojet by AvioDev

  • Seat movement sound correctly stops now when reaching max position, if moving it from one end to the other
  • Adjusted reset speed of accelerometer needles according to real behaviour
  • Implemented safety pin of canopy fracturing handle
  • Modified fracturing handle

Keybinds:

  • Radar HOTAS "TDC CENTER" changed to "TDC DEPRESS (Lock Target)". Its unique function is to lock AA targets

    • With a locked AA target: toggles between STT/TWS tracking modes (same as before)
    • With the radar on SCAN and no locked AA target, it selects the default lock mode for AA targets: STT or TWS. The default lock mode can be overridden by the toggle switch but upon target unlock will go back to its default
  • Guns default firing mode: TOT and PAR either in AA or CAS. Mode will reset to default when deselecting the weapon
  • Rockets default firing mode: TOT. Mode will reset to default when deselecting the weapon
  • S530D Salvo mode is disabled
  • Default switches position when starting in the air:
    • Radar Altimeter is active (Switches in M and H respectively)
    • Radar is on EM mode

  • DDM (IR Missile detector) is now unmounted and OFF by default
  • FBW "too slow" sound logic updated
  • AP "Gong" Sound logic updated
  • AP Roll limit updated
  • AP Track Index behavior fixed

Display Changes:

  • S530D SVI Brackets have been deleted. They do not exist in the M-2000C
  • S530D G and D are now circled all the time. They indicate that the missile seeker head is locked on the target
  • Radar TDC is now available in SIL and EM modes
  • TWS/STT (PID/PIC) lock mode legend is now visible at all times in both SIL and EM modes. It indicates the radar default lock mode (with no locked target) or the current target lock mode
  • CCRP Target cross "+" has been deleted. This is a M-2000D feature only
